      This thread will document my challenge from 2nl to 25nl.

      Got a decent rakeback deal on ipoker and a 200% bonus to clear.

      I would like to replicate hansthegreat though his dedication and work ethic is mind blowing.

      Goals:

      1. 2nl - 4nl [x] Complete 05/04/15
      2. 4nl - 10nl
      2. 3k hands per day minimum
      3. 1 hour study per day minimum
      4. No tilting ever
      5. Aim to play A-Game as much as possible
      6. 5k profit by June

      See you all at the tables.

      Starting bankroll £34 (45 euro)

      Day 1:

      Decent first day. Slow start then crushed. Here is the graph so far.

      Played mostly heads up. Might stick to heads up for now. I know the rake is brutal but easy money and i think with my rakeback deal i can more than beat it.
      another £12 and its on to 4nl :)



      Got a few rewards for joining betfair so added a few extra euros to the roll.



      Current Profit: £22.83 (31.27 euro)

      Day 2:

      Second day in the books.

      A little less time to grind than usual as im off out tonight so fell short of the 3k hands mark.
      That said the roll is now 4nl ready.

      Today i played 6 max. I feel like i have a bigger edge in 6 max than heads up so may well stick to this format now and its easier to grind more tables.

      Current Profit: £33.81 (46.30 euro)

      Hey Spankmehard,

      Just curious how you got into poker and what sort of studying/training did you do. I'm currently playing 2nl right now and would appreciate any tips on playing at this level since your doing so well at 6max. Also do you play FR or Zoom?

      Cheers
