      After a couple years absence from poker it's time to start and try again. Got 20$ free money to play and sport bet about 4 weeks ago and decided to try some poker again starting from the bottom. Earlier I have played 6maxNL & MTT's being a marginally winning player, and then decided to try PLO and crashed my small bankrolls totally there. So back to the basics then and to the NL2. Watched Confidant91's micro-videos during last month and started to play by that beginner strategy. My goals for the start are to improve my post-flop playing, to avoid tilting and spew on tilt and keeping my sessions about 1h long. The challenge goal is to climb stakes to NL 25 and reach a bankroll of 1000$, and when this is achieved well see what is next.

      My brm for the challenge:
      NL2 0-100$
      NL5 100-250$ back to NL2 if roll < 50$
      NL10 250-750$ back to NL5 if roll < 200$
      NL25 750-1000$ back to NL10 if roll < 500$

      I have played NL2 4-tabling mixing $€£-tables.
      So far it has been kind of a success :f_p:



      Starting bankroll: 56.31$
      Bankrolla goal: 1000$

      First week is in and I have made it to NL5 thanks to a 10$ stellar and 1000fpp's I cashed in. :f_p: NL2 seemed pretty easy to beat overall, lots of totally clueless players there. After first few sessions in NL5 it seems like its a lot more stable there, already fewer fish and more regulars. Still managed to make some $'s there too, although made few mistakes and crashed my kings to jacks. Happy to get up NL5 this soon, hope it goes well in the future. W34z3l's videos are next up to me as i got silver here too.

      Thanks vonki & SvenBe!

      Results have been quite nice indeed. But today ev has been a real b**ch to me, lost couple buy-ins with aces shoved pf vs aces, kings, AQ and 96o :f_eek:
      But I still feel quite good playing these limits, just a bit of bad luck.

      Don't feel so good anymore. Crashed pretty bad last week. Called way too much in tricky spots, then tilted a bit from bad playing and played even worse :f_mad:

      Guess this week was better, but still pretty awfull. A lots of ups and downs, ending the week down, which of course gets my mood down a bit too. Things don't go well so at NL5, played one day NL2 still crushing there.

      Made a switch to zoom games this week and results have been great since. Going to keep playing zoom from now on as theres a lot more fish than in regular tables. So, two zoom NL5 tables are up this week. Also watched half of Double2's out from the micros videos which are just great :f_grin: Going to watch the other half this week.
