      Thanks for the support :)

      To be able to complete the challenge I need to improve a lot. So I will start from my preflop ranges. First EP then MP and so on... The 3bb target is just to challenge myself.
      Also I won't check my bankroll or total winnings till Monday.
      Good luck !

      That’s good to know. Maybe the thread No Limit Beginners course with confidant91 can help you with improving you’re ranges if you didn’t checked it earlier.

      It's time to check the results, but first some overview.

      Good:
      1. I started playing 6 tables for some more action.
      2. I haven't check my bankroll since the day I started.

      Bad:
      1. Lost my focus and played bad for the last three days.
      2. I must spent more time learning.

      And now the results:

      Week 1
      Hands: 16360
      Profit: +$36.91 (cash tables) - $3.85 (MTT) = +$33.06






      Not bad but next week I should improve.

      Good luck !

      It’s a little bit weird you win only $15 on button and on other positions accept SB and BB a lot more. Off course is sample not to high, but looks weird in my eyes. Maybe good to know how you’re VPIP/PFR stats are from every position.

      At least you made a profitable start. Keep it up :f_thumbsup:

      At first I played 4 tables , than moved to 6. I was really motivated and played a lot, but at the moment I am so burned out from work that this is imposible.
      A year ago I became software developer, the platform I work for is ios. I started as junior and at the moment I became regular ( on june , at the end of my first year ) I decided to get back to playing some poker. For the last few months I had to work on the app alone , and I not only did my tasks but improved some other things, and now two weeks from a short vacation I am so tired... Anyway I played some poker last week , and even won some $ :)
      Maybe I will play some till then but my plan is to spend more time out with friends and on my bike. ( actually a ride with a friend turned out to be really fun ! ) Also I will try to see as much videos as possible to prepare for the vacation. I am going to my hometown to spend some time with my brother ( 10 years old ). The plan is to play poker all night, sleep till lunch and then go to the beach with him, dinner and some drinks with friends or family and repeat ;) really can't wait...


      And some results:
      Week 5
      Hands: 6k
      Profit: +$28.06

      Lol I have actually written something, this may become a real blog after all !

      Have a nice week and crush them regs :s_cool:
