      Hello
      I am starting this challenge with 173$ and will go for 1000$. I play 6max regular tables the No Bullsh*t way.

      The past few years I played alot of live poker and about 2months ago I sorta went broke and I decided to play the lowest stakes online for a while. I had about 60$ in my stars account and was playing FRzoom. I then decided to switch to 6max regular tables.

      I love this game too much and I can`t quit so my only option is to become a better player.

      Have a nice day and Goodluck. :f_thumbsup:

      Hey luckyaceguy,

      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.

      Have you checked out w34z3l's 6max walkthrough - (microstakes edition)? There should be some good stuff there to help with the transition from FR to 6-Max.

      Looking forward to posts about "No Bullsh*t" :f_biggrin:

      Have fun :gl:

      Hello Laz

      Thank you, I appreciate your help. I am currently studying the NO BS course and Hans the Great course on how to crush fish in 2015. It has helped me alot!

      This has been my first month only playing 6max. Mostly playing NL2 and some sessions at NL5. I decided to stay at NL2 now until I get 50BI for NL5 and I just been adding more tables to get out of my comfort zone a little. I think 4-6 tables is my best and I would like to play 8-12.

      My results so far:



      Have a nice day :)

      Hello
      I am back after doing something else for a while that did not work out for me. I want to start a new challenge here.
      Starting bankroll 900$ and my goal is to get to 9000$ within whatever time it takes. I will start by playing Nl10 and Nl30.

      GL

      Day 1

      I played a small session and it was a tough start losing 2 buyins real quick at Nl30, it happens. Better days to come.

      Hands: 830
      P/L: -53.67

      Notes: Should have folded a couple river min raises and would have saved some, other than that did not make any stupid plays and just ran into some better hands.

      Current BR: 847.33

      Day 3

      This was a rollercoaster session, manage to finish with a small profit. I got rivered at one point and it did affect my emotions because I played a few pots after that very badly vs the same player. I think this happens to me often and I will work on fixing this sort of tilt in the future maybe by doing some logical thinking when this happens because it does hurt my winrate.

      Hands: 1159
      P/L: 7.25

      Current BR: 840.20

      Here are some hands that I played. I have the 98s example that I played bad vs the same villain as AQo hand and this was certainly tilt because I knew it was wrong to call preflop. Hopefully I will start running better soon and stop making some of these bad plays.

      Hero (BB): $66.03 (220.1 bb)

      BTN: $39.36 (131.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J T
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.18, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.88

      Flop: ($2.51) K Q J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.51, Hero raises to $6.22, CO raises to $18 and is all-in, Hero calls $11.78

      Turn: ($38.51) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($38.51) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $38.51 pot ($1.92 rake)

      Hello everyone,

      Time for an update here, I have made a 2 week schedule that I will follow and it has me playing 19 hours with 6 hours of study each week. The rest of the time I am either working or doing some other personal development activity. I will then adjust this schedule and by next year I should have a nicely organised life.

      Example of today:
      Monday:
      • 7a.m. Wake up, 5mins Meditation, Meal 1, Exercise.
      • 8a.m. Study Slot 1
      • 9a.m. Meal2, Post challenge on pokerstrategy Blog
      • 10a.m. Make lunch, get ready and go work.
      • 11a.m. work, Meal 3
      • 7-8p.m. Finish work
      • 8p.m. Meal 4, Warm-up
      • 9p.m. Play 3hrs (30-break-30-break-1hr-break-30-break-30) Cool down, 5min meditate
      • 1a.m. Sleep

      I will make it more detailed as I go along by knowing precisely what I am going to study, eat, workout etc. I am also playing less tables to be able to focus better and not just play auto-pilot. Hopefully this knew approach will help me move up to where I want to be.

      Good Luck!

      Week 5
      Hands: 2852
      P/L: 13.13
      Current Bankroll: 960.92

      Played moslty NL10 and maybe a couple hundred on NL30, working with a new preflop range and dropped down to 3 tables and studying Cbet.

      Followed my schedule for the most part and will change some stuff next week. Playing time seems fine and I can probably fit in more.

      Goodnight.

      Hello,

      Today I hit a stop/loss. I played 4 tables NL10 and after 915 hands I lost 8 BI's! This week has been overall up/down but today was terrible. It has been a while since I had such a bad day and I guess that I just need to take a good +24hr break and clear my head from all the noise. I am proud that I did tilt at various moments and did continue to play my best, well the best that I can. I was so close of just moving up to nl25 and now it seems so far again.

      I am eating better, studying more, playing more and good things will happen at some point.

      Good Luck

      Hello,

      I had to stop my schedule for now because of work it's busy time for a waiter and been doing 7 day shifts. This coming week I will make more time for poker and there will be some interesting things coming up...
