Since march of past year i have been playing poker to pay my colege , english class and some other small basic needs , but i went on a downswing + lazy + desmotivated os the end of the year and i lost almost all of my bank , i used to play nl25 on stars but i lost almost all of my money right now i`m playing on planet win 365 and i have only 57 euros bankroll . My plan is to go back to nl2 and rebuild my bankroll . I will start tomorow i will be posting some results and thoughts about the game and life here if anyone is interested .

      Hello Fernando

      It’s nice to see that you started a challenge to improve your bankroll. Maybe it’s a good idea to use our Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Opt-in now! promotion. That could help you as well to stimulate if you have a nice goal with a nice reward for it.

      Are you playing full ring or shorthanded cash games?
      Further I wish you all the best with improving your game :gl:

      Cheers,
      SDK1987

      First day , yesterday i was complaining with the support of the room that i`m playing about a promotion called loss back, basicaly they give you back 30% of the amount that you lost on the week , the thing is, on the site is saying : Only play on No Limit Holdem tables at stakes up to and including NL200 (€1/€2) where at least 3 players are dealt into the hand , so i thought it would count every hand of 6max then but it only counts hands where 3 players or more invested money or something like that and even tough i lost a lot of money playing nl5 on the past week i didnt receive anything cause i was positive in multway pots :f_confused: , so i sent alot of emails saying that i lost because i didnt know that only multway pots counts , and the support said that to me :

      Dear Luiz Fernando,

      Sorry for the delay in responding, it took time to complete all the checks needed in order to confirm our final answer.
      At first, we would like to point out that the number of hands eligible for LossBack bonus is a result of an auotmatic calculation.
      On your request we've doubled checked your Poker activity for the last week and we can confirm that there are no discrepancies on our side. Please note that this promotion is active on our site for a long time and up to now we didn't have any irregularites in our software.
      To be absolutely sure in our results we've checked a few random players with a similar number of hands as yours who didn't receive a bonus for interested period and we confirmed that numbers are matching the automatic calculation.

      Since you are our new player and you've played so many hands on our tables, we've decided to credit your Poker account with 10€ bonus.

      We remain at your disposal.

      Best regards,
      planetwin365

      soo more 10€ for the account wich is a big help for me in this situation haha.

      on the tables the day was awesome too .

      Results of the day :

      Hands played : 4252
      Result : + €15.27
      Bankroll : €83.06

      Current BR : €98.75

      well it seems that this blog will be more like a diary haha xD , anyway today was the best day of the challenge so far the cards were on my side today :sfishg: , i dont think i will be able to play the 6k hands per day that i wanted because i can only play 20 tables at the same time because the players leave the table and i need to manualy go to the software and put it to search for another and also i think i can only play 20 table between 11 AM till 5pm , so its hard to make a 4:30 - 5:00 hour session with almost no real break, I will try my best but i think its only possible to play a bit more than 5k .

      Results of the day :

      Hands played : 5391
      Result : +€22.03
