      Hi everyone!!!

      I konw u see the title of the thread and u think OH MY GOD HERE IS ANOTHER ONE!!! But this is not like that, i do not dream to be Supernova Elite or play HS I really have on interest for that

      ABOUT ME

      I am 31 guy living in Croatia (East Europe), great country for a summer holiday. I have a job from 08-17 in a small firm where I have a pretty good salary for my country. No wife,no kids, still cant see my self in that kind of life. I have a masters in Economics,and like everyone else on this site i love poker

      ABOUT MY POKER PAST

      I started playing in 2009, after work each friday i went to one live tournament. Talking with people there i learnd that there is also internet poker (weeeeeeee),so i opened acc on FULL TILT and lost few houndred dollars, playing cash, MTT,SnG and everything else (you know how it goes).
      In 2011. I started to read some forums and started to learn more and more about this great game. I was playing microstakes and was BE player cashing out my RB (it was not a lot of money,but it was free in my eyes)
      I never lost my bankroll after 2011., but i also didnt manage to move from nl5. I also played live poker in casions in my town (usually 1$-1$ in our curency) where I always manged to be on a positive side.
      After 2009. may things happened to me in my private life that led me to depersion (family, finance). In 2014. my friend asked me to hlep him in his firm (where I work now) and it was basicly the first job that I had after 2009 when firm that I worked in went into bankrupcy. That helped me a lot,at that time I was not playing online,only live cash few times a month. In September my friend became AFF for one skin on Enet network and asked me if I am intrested in playing over there. I wasnt, but i opened acc just for him and deposited 40 EUROS. Didnt touch that acc for few moths ( i just didnt want to play online), i was more happy watching TV after work or going out with my friends. In Jan 2015. I started to play few houndred hands a day when I was bored to death,also i watched some poker videos on YT. After some time i builded some roll, I look once I have 100 EUROS, second time 150 EUROS and so on and all that on small volume on nl5.

      ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

      So as the title says i want to have 35k EUROS of my own cash by the end of 2016. I dont think to make all of that from poker,not at all, it is form poker,form saving of my salary,form live playing and also form investing in stocks and mutual funds. I will try to update every few days, you will get updates about poker,and also about everything else that I thik it is intresting (I have a pretty crazy friends so I will have some intresting stories)

      SO LETS SUM IT UP

      CURRENT BANKROLL: 250 euros
      NETWORK: ENET
      CURRENT LIMIT: 80% nl10 and 20% nl5

      Also I am gonna play SATS for live events on PS and when there is on ENET.

      Sory if my english is bad,it is not my antive language

      If u Have any questions just ask in this thred,I will try to answer

      OK, time for my first weekly update

      Didn t play that much online, maybe 2500 hands, i had lots of work,and some private things that took me a lot of time.

      But I managed to grind 26 EUR of profit + RB. On friday I really got drunk with my friends,and on Saturday I played one live event for 130 EUR buy in. I busted very early,not a good combination to play after partying.

      This week I will try to play as much as I can,hopeing to make 7000 hands for week.

      In my first post I told you guys that I play 80% nl10 and 20% nl5, but actually I play around 50%-50%.

      Thats basicly all, will update i next few days for a whole month.

      STARTING BANKROLL: 250 eur

      CURRENT BANKROLL: 276 EUR + 31 EUR rb

      Hy everyone

      Last few days I wanted to update my poker journal but I had so many things that I just didn t find any time. Last few days didn t play one single hand of poker, last time I played was april 1st.

      I found some free time today so thought to make some recap of last month. Because I still don t use HEM or PT I can only give you the numbers that I take in my excel sheet.

      I played 21 day in March,and if we take that I make around 1000 hands per day,it is around 20000 hands (I am really crushing that volume). But I was very pleased how did I play and with results.

      PROFIT FROM PLAYING: 208,33 EUR
      PROFIT FROM RB: 31,1 EUR
      TOTAL: 239,33 EUR

      I think that I will play only nl10 through April (if I run good), also didn t play LIVE CASH at all, just don t feel like going to Casino and watching all those people.

      Will post weekly update in few days,till then enjoy everyone

      WEEK 2 UPDATE

      Hy everyone and Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates. So my project is two weeks old now.
      It has been a slow week in terms of my poker playing, but again it is positive week. I am still geting used to this so I still dont have clear picture how I am gonna update this project. I mean I will update every week defintly, but dont know for monthly resaults.

      I played 5 days this week, and made maybe 4000 hands on nl5 and nl10. I very pleased how did I play ,but not pleased with the volume,need to work on that. So here are the numbers for WEEK 2

      PROFIT FROM PLAYING: 27,34 EUR
      PROFIT FROM RB: 9,83 EUR
      TOTAL: 37,17 EUR

      Next week i am gonna try to watch videos and read about playing from the blinds, I feel that i need to work on that part of my game.

      Also I was wondering if anyone knows what is the best program to buy for converting hands form ENET network. I see there is few of them but dont know wich one is the best for HEM2

      Thats all guys, good luck at the tables

      I have been so busy these last days that I didn t have time to update on monday. I haven t played single hand since last Wendsday, private matters are taking my time. I hope that I am gonna start to grind tommorow again,and gonna try to put some sirius volume on Sunday.
      Last week was OK, I am happy that is another positive week,I played only nl10 and it is funny in wich state of mind I am. I see guys 3b a lot more than on nl5, before when I was playing and saw that kind of things I got very frustrated wich then led to tilt and spewing. Now I just let them and wait,I try to get them to tilt and spew.

      PROFIT FROM RB: 10,34 EUR

      WEEK 4 and 5 UPDATES

      Hy guys

      Sory for no updates for two weeks but in week 4 I didn t play single hand online, only one live tournament, in week five I played two days online and some live. I started to play one live tournament that is every Saturday in local casino. Buy in is around 30 EUR, tournament has a good structure and prizes are OK for that buy in,because it is a kind of leauge of nine tournaments and in the end,best 18 are playing for car SEAT IBIZA. Field is pretty soft but it is also pretty big (around 150 players every time). Still havent got any good resaults that I can brag. After I busted out from a tournament I played some cash and had positive session.

      This week I started to grind again and volume is OK,but I run pretty bad,we will see what will the end of the week bring

      Numbers for WEEK 4&5

      PROFIT FROM PLAYING: -26,77 EUR
      PROFIT FROM RB: 4,12 EUR
      PROFIT FROM LIVE TOUR: -60 EUR
      PROFIT FROM LIVE CASH: 60 EUR
      TOTAL: -22,65 EUR

      Numbers since I started the challenge

      PROFIT FROM PLAYING: 49,78 EUR
      PROFIT FROM RB: 31,29 EUR
      PROFIT FROM LIVE TOUR: -60 EUR
      PROFIT FROM LIVE CASH: 60 EUR
      TOTAL: 81,07 EUR
