      Hello there,

      I have a pretty simple plan. My bankroll is about 100 euros. I am going to play for the next 2 months on PokerHeaven starting with NL2. I plan to move up in stakes at 30 buy ins with 10 buy ins shot. If I fail I'll move back down a limit and start it all over.

      Guidelines:
      :heart: Regarding the play style, VPIP and PFR should be around 26/22 and the 3bet not larger than 5 (at least at NL2 and NL4).
      :heart: Play 30.000 hands/month
      :heart: 5 buy ins stop loss per day
      :heart: stick to max 8 tables (preferably only 6)
      :heart: update twice a week, on Wendsday and on Sunday
      :heart: think at every decision postflop at least 3 seconds
      :heart: watch poker videos (NL10 highest limit) and study strategy material
      :heart: become a winning player at NL20 (NL25) by the end of the year

      I hope to have a long lasting blog and good results. :coolface:
      Cheers!

      Thank you! :)
      This is one interesting hand. I for sure didn't expect to see it at this limit:
      Prima, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $3.53 (176.5 bb)
      BB: $3.17 (158.5 bb)
      MP: $3.89 (194.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $3.97 (198.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.90 (45 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      MP raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.19) 5 Q A (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.30, BB folds, MP calls $0.21

      Turn: ($0.79) 2 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.39, MP raises to $1.17, Hero calls $0.78

      River: ($3.13) 5 (2 players)
      MP bets $2.36, Hero calls $2.36

      Results:
      $7.85 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 5 Q A 2 5
      MP showed Q K and lost (-$3.89 net)
      Hero showed Q A and won $7.75 ($3.86 net)

      Cheers!

      TY, good luck to you too! :)
      I updated the previous post a little bit and I am taking at least a week off the tables. I'll be back with fully charged batteries for NL4 and continue with my plan. The bankroll is solid with 35 buy ins for NL4. I just hope that my game is good enough too. :)
      Cheers!

      Man, this is weird. There are almost no tables at NL4 on microgaming on Saturday evening. There are plenty of NL2, NL10 and NL20 though. I can't explain it.
      I guess that NL4 on microgaming is something like NL10 speed on ipoker... strange. :f_rolleyes:

      The next update will be after I hit 5.000 hands on NL4 and evaluate after that... I have 0 so far.
      Cheers! :f_thumbsup:

      I didn't had much time for poker so I will stay at NL2 for a little bit more. After I reach a total of 20.000 hands at this limit I will post my results and eventually move up to NL4 with a proper bankroll management. I suppose that by Sunday the target will be reached. :)

      Cheers!

      I had such a sick session today. I was -5 buy ins at some point there. :f_frown:
      Anyway, I hit the 20.000 hands at NL2 so there is no reason for me to stay at this limit anymore. My bankroll is very solid now at €178 wich means around 44 buy ins for NL4. Here is my graph so far:

      Have a nice evening!
