      Hello everyone! :f_drink:

      Like the title says, I will join the bankroll challenge and hopefully this will keep me motivated to do my best with poker. I will play NL 6max, starting from NL5, on PokerStars.

      About me: I'm an surveying engineer who dreams of a career as professional poker player :f_ugly: :f_ugly: :f_ugly: . I had several attempts to do that but I always failed, most of the time because of the tilt :pcuser: . For the moment I'm reading "The poker mindset" and hopefully I will apply the principles to stay tilt free and stop losing money because of this.

      Starting bankroll: 113$
      Goal: 1000$

      I will also set some goals like:
      - play at least 1500 hands daily;
      - read a strategy article/watch a strategy video or coaching session before playing;
      - post graphs, hands and updates daily in this blog.

      So far, so good, I will start from tomorrow hoping for the best, good luck everyone!

      Hello and welcome to the Bankroll Challenge! :f_thumbsup:

      Some quick feedback: Since you've had a lot of tilt issues in the past, I would cut down the volume in the beginning. Building up reistance to tilt takes a long time, and I know very few micro players who can play 3k hands daily and still show a profit in the end! It's not an impossible task, but you have to start where you know you can show a profit, even if it's just 1000 or 1500 daily. Build up your tolerance from there and your chances of success will be a lot higher!

      Wish you all the best! :f_love:

      Thank you for feedback, I read your post few hours ago and I'm really thinking that this could be true so I will reduce my daily volume goal to half and increase it in time, maybe at NL10.
      Wish you all the best in your challenge too! :f_thumbsup:
