      Hello!

      As you may draw some conclusions from the name of this thread, I am going to find out if this(Tankroll-Bankroll) is going to work or is it going be Spankroll. And yes, I mean hero get spanked from behind :wtf:
      Lets get started with some Off-Topic
      Short brief about myself and from my short career in poker. This is my (5th?) comeback, in 3 years :D Everytime it comes with the same story; start playing, get to the good mood and get crushed. By getting crushed I mean getting crushed IRL as something always comes between us(me and poker). Well guess what? I am not gonna change my habits, I got a major work project starting at the beginning of April wich is going to limit my playing ofcourse.
      Why am I doing tank-brm? Cause, I want try out something new.
      Everytime I have made a "comeback" I managed to climb up the micross to NL10. Everytime I have started less than 100$ deposit. Everytime I have done it, umm, how you say, with "normal" brm. Cause of these three(maybe some more)reasons, I might say that I can handle microstakes, atleast the lowest ones. Despite of that I consider myself as a recreational player, who wants to be better than other ones(=profit?).
      Lets get On-Topic
      I want to make progress with my game(everyone does, right?) and I feel pretty comfortable with aggressive brm. Changing limits up and down fast does not affect my game that much.
      So I made a deposit of 72$ to betfair(fail, cause no strategy points :censored: .) First I had to see if I can remember something(anything?) from shorthanded or ranges, pre 3bet ranges etc etc. And for that I have W34z3ls 6-max walkthrough ranges in my Equilab. Really need to work with everything atm. Second thing is to get familiar with speed poker.
      I think the first goal is to make 1000$ including fdb and rakeback and will see IF the br is ever going to get anywhere near it.
      72$ is 167$now and I am playing nl20. Had a bit of a swing couple days ago, went like a rocket from 120$ to 230$ and back down, ah, thats poker.

      I think this is it, I wish myself gl to tables and going to update this, when I have anything to update.

      Hey keekkini,

      Nice challenge. You should consider entering our Get Rich or Die Tryin' challenge. Sounds ideal for what you are aiming for. :s_thumbsup:

      I have also been considering doing a tankroll challenge because like you, RL is always interrupting me and poker as well. (Although mine would likely be at 45 man SnGs) :s_evil:

      Have fun :gl:

      Thx for the tip, that is really ideal for challenge like this :f_cool:
      So I had to opt in for Get Rich or Die Tryin' and starting bankroll would be 170$ goal is still the 1000$. I guess its going to be pretty boring first report tomorrow :)

      Around 3000 hands behind this week, took a shot to nl50 and came down like a meteor with 1,5bin there + lost 2bins in nl20 so bankroll was at 130$. Used VPPs as first back up and roll is at 170$ now. Still feeling good about my game but going to use couple days to study a bit, getting back to tables at weekend and hopefully I manage to build my roll back nl50 with better concentration.

      So first things first; Get rich or Die tryin' challenge:
      WEEK 2
      Hands: 9220
      Net won: 10,50$
      Bankroll: 241,82$
      Im not satisfied anymore with my game(B/C-game). Found myself in many difficult spots, where I was thinking should I call or not. I will post some hands later, but something like facing pot-size-bets at river with TPTK. Got few good calls, still Im pretty sure though that I was folding the best hand pretty often, why ppl do those sick 3barrel/2barrel bluffs at these limits?
      Good thing was that I got a lot of info from couple of regs and were able to use it against them.
      Better luck (focusing/playing) this week!
