      Hi!

      Thanks for stopping by. I'm also joining this "Get Rich or Die Tryin" challenge.

      A little bit of me:
      I'm 28 years old from Sweden and have been playing poker since 2011. I've been having som small success with poker where my biggest wining in an MTT was recently the $1.10 Daily Double where I finished 3rd out of 12500 entrants and cashed $880.
      Except for that I have won a $720 spin and go and also a $215 ticket to sunday million.

      My biggest bankroll was $1185 which was last month and were I started with only 0$ and 30fpp in July 2015. I decided to cash out and now I want to start again and my cuirrent BR is $55.98.
      Except for that I haven't deposited anything for over 2 years.

      I only play on pokerstars and I play different games such as cash games NL2 mainly zoom, mtts, and sngs. I've been playing NL5 zoom but I'm having some problem there so I need to improve there.

      I will try to get to a big bankroll again so feel free to follow my progress.

      Well, week 2 didn't go to good was down to 55$, but just had a nice NL2 zoom session where I tried to hit the straight flush, but I didn't hit hit, however I had a pretty good run. So now my current BR is $79.38, hopefully I will keep this and grind my way up!

      Week 3
      Hands: 7204
      Tournaments: 21
      Profit: +$31.76
      BR$83.76

      This week was better than week 2 where I had 52.5$ in BR.
      I've been running deep in some tournaments but unfortunately it's low turbo buy ins and I didn't win much.

      Week 4
      Hands: 7660
      Tournaments: 45
      Profit: +$1.20
      BR$84.96

      I actually made around 33$ profit playing some NL2 and also NL5 6-max games, but I also played a lot of tournaments with higher buyins than my BR and they didn't goo to good. Therefore this weeks results is only +$1.20. My biggest problem now atm is to stick with NL2 6-max zoom, but it get's a bit to boring sometimes and especially when a lot of players call anyhand against a 3 bet preflop, so therefore I played some NL5 6-max zoom as well. Except for that I play some tournaments with higher buy ins and I also need to learn to play better in the MTTs. Hopefully I will make a bigger profit soon.

      As for this week I'm actually going to take a break since I have an exam next week. So I'll see you around in a week!

      Hi SvenBe!

      The BR challenge is going good, but I took a break last week since I had an exam, and I reported in the thread that I would take 1 week off. I will update my BR stats this monday that will come on the 18th.
      I hope that is ok.

      Hi again,

      I've decided to cancel this challenge since I no longer have time to play a lot of poker since I need to focus on my School.
      I hope I will be back after a while and take a new challenge!

      Good luck to all of you with your challenges!
