      Welcome to the 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' bankroll challenge. we will be looking forward to your first update which you should post by Monday of each week in Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Reporting thread.

      Thanks to bonecore :f_thumbsup: HM2 and PT4 both have 30 day free trials and if you have T-a-F money, then you could buy it out of that. :f_cool: You can read more on our Software and our Tell-a-Friend pages.

      ok after few days grinding, mostly on rush poker NL10 my bankroll is increasing , so i m quit happy.
      first day didn't start well as i was under 30$ but now i'm on 185$.
      I bit risky cause i am following the tankroll BRM, so playing NL10 with 150$ BR it's aggressive.
      I'm enjoying the experience of rush poker, i need to improve with the use of HUD.

      First few days
      bankroll:185 $
      Profit 35$

      in the report you forgot to mention the nr of hands
      Wow you beat NL10 rush from start on! You must have had some prior experience to poker i believe.
      Good luck!

      yes of course i've been playing poker for few years, but i never crushed the microstakes, i play live as well.
      To be honest i dont know how to see the number of hands, on Ipoker it was displayed, but on full tilt i dont know how to see it.:sorry:

      in your database you can find it using a software like HM2, PT4 or Xeeser?!
      You will find it soon if u keep playing online :)

      i am starting to give some shot to nl25 as i am over 200$ now.
      i feel like it is very aggressive, but tankroll brm suggest to start nl25 already with 7 stacks.
      so i decide to start nl25 until 300$ and go back to nl10 when i am under 200$.
      Unfortunately i m basically not using any HUD as it is not working with rush poker.
      So i don't have any stats to show and to study.
      i have calculated that if i play 4 table i play around 1000 hands per hour.
      Back to work...

      another week has gone, my Bankroll is increasing so i'm happy,even if i'am to be ready for downswings.
      I have 300$ in my BR but i will only consider 270 as 30$ came from bonus.
      I' am playing NL25 at the moment.
      I m not using any HUD at the moment so it is not good as i don't review all the mistake i'm doing during my session.
      I understood it is very important to use one if you take poker serious as we do, expecially if you move up in limit.
      For now i'm not worried as you can spot types of players at this level, but if i will ever get to higher limit i'm sure HM2 or PT4 are very important tools.
      Actually i was quite busy at work this week so i couldn't play every day, that's why maybe i got some good results as i have realized that the longer i play the more mistake i make and tilt more often. But for sure this is another aspect to improve , to have endurance and beeing able to play under stress.
      That's it for today....Road to 1000$...and good poker to everyone.:f_thumbsup:

      i'm not using HUD so i try to spot fishes and divided them between passive fish and aggressive fish.
      both play most of the hands, the affressive try to bluff more, while passive are more calling stations.
      I don't know just a suggestion, fish are not all the same, and who know what kind of fish opponents think i am :f_p:
      Good night..time to sleep.
