      Hey there and welcome to blogs! :)

      With just 19$ I recommend you to start from the lowest buy-in SnGs you can find from PokerStars.

      @Lazza61 Thanks, hope to help with the experience that you have :f_thumbsup:

      @NutzAreOk Thanks, I think 40 BI me enough. However, I have some experience in 45man. If my bankroll drops to $ 10 then you pulled at the lowest level.:f_thumbsup:

      Hey Plamen,

      If you have prior experience in 45 manners, that BRM should be fine. I used to use 20 BIs for regulars and 30 BIs for turbos and my BR was never under threat. I don't really play 45 manners much anymore (playing more MTTs these days) but I do enjoy them and want to do a tankroll on them soon.

      Cheers

      Laz

      With all due respect but 40 BI is really not enough no matter how good you are. It`s always possbile to hit 40 BI downswing. Gl however! :)

      This week I started to cash games. The reason for this is that I can not stand to long sessions only a 5 minute break.

      Hi,

      Yesterday I had to reinstall my windows and unfortunately lose my database of HM 2.

      Of €100 Bankroll started playing strategy "Tankroll bankroll management: from €150 to €1,000" .
      Things for now I get well and picking up the bank to €170. Start working on my preflop ranges. I will pay more attention to my game from the late positions

      Would be nice to see a update here as well.
      Based on your reports week 7 you made a nice profit and you ended break even in week 8.
      Are you happy how it’s going on the moment?

      Further I wish you all the best with your challenge :gl:

      Cheers,

      Hello,
      I decided to go back to pokerstars. I started with $ 150. For now I will play in strategy "Tankroll bankroll management". Unfortunately I went very well and did some pretty stupid mistakes post-flop. This week I will try to play a little tight and regained losses.

      Here is a hand that I think I played pretty bad:
      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $7.86 (78.6 bb)
      BB: $14.49 (144.9 bb)
      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $14.30 (143 bb)
      BTN: $5.07 (50.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 5 5
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.30, CO raises to $0.80, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.75) 3 Q 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.10, CO calls $1.20

      Turn: ($5.95) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, CO calls $2

      River: ($9.95) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.10 and is all-in, CO calls $5.10

      Results:
      $20.15 pot ($0.91 rake)
      Final Board: 3 Q 8 9 5
      Hero showed 5 5 and lost (-$10 net)
      CO showed 2 A and won $19.24 ($9.24 net)





      @SDK1987 Hello,
      7 weeks was really good, but at the moment things are not going very well. I decided to change my poker room because I did the volume was too small. I hope that in pokerstars will do more volume and things will happen quickly. Overall I think these nine weeks already are a complete failure.

      Thanks and sorry for my bad English :)

      Your English isn’t bad I think for someone that doesn’t write English often.

      I’m no cash gamer, but looks like a easy fold on his 3 bet. I don’t think you get the implied odds for hitting a set or you had other reasons to call that wasn’t based on the ‘Call 20’ rule alone. The check/raise on flop makes not to much sense I think. I would fold here as well with only 2 outs to hit a set and in worst case only one 5 is life.

      Hopefully your running better this week :gl:

      Best regards,
      SDK1987
