      Hi guys!

      I am 22 years old player from Colombia, my name is David and im a PL player

      I decide to create this blog just for opt in the get rich or die try promotion, and also to keep track on my results plus motivimational reasons.

      i used to be a PL 25 reg with decent results



      Any way recently for a downsing/tilt/ withdrawl reasons i lose a big part of my bankroll, thats why i had to move back to PL 5 :f_cry: :f_cry: . Thats why i decide to start a tankroll challengue where my goal is to move from PL 5 to PL 50 faster as i could.

      This will be my bankroll management



      My goal is to reach 3000$ and become a PL 50 reg player

      i dont have problems to move back to another stake so whatever

      ANy way, I start the challengue few weaks ago with: $125 playing PL 5

      Right now im playing PL 10 with an actual bankroll of $432.98, all ready play 24,105 hands

      So lets hope this work, and i reach my goal :f_drink: :f_drink: :f_drink:

      PD: srry for my english its not the best but im triying to improve

      High varience game with high varience brm and not good tilt control. What ever could go wrong? :)

      @ adee3: sure it could work just as you might be fine driving a race car without properdriving experience without the neccesary protection,but in both cases you put yourself in great risk failing.

      With this bankroll management it is very likely you need to go up and down in limits pretty regurlarly which has a petty high change to tilt someone. So I don't find it a sensible approse for someone that just lost a large part of his bankroll mainlt because of tilt issue. It would be much better to at least deal with these issue before taking such a high variance approce to bankroll management in a already high varience game as PLO.

      I think that he can get it sorted out. I would have been a little bit more pessimistic if he played NL. Maybe he learnt his leasson after falling from PL50 to PL5.:fouet:

      Hey guys thanks for reply :f_drink: :f_drink: , i dont say i lose a big part of my bankroll cause tilt issues (i dont expense to much time explain that on the introduction) , but it was mainly for withdrawls and downsing, EV own me 500$ euros in PL 20 in ipoker, about my tilt i been working on that a lot of time ago so my mental game right now is good, and i dont have problems moving up and down, so im going to try it why not :fouet: :fouet: :fouet: :fouet: :fouet:

      Further I wish you all the best with playing PLO25 :gl:
