      Hello everybody!

      The reason I create this blog is this challenge.

      My goal is to build a bankroll of 1000€.


      As I have never been a winning player and always fishing around in the microstakes, this is gonna be a pretty tough goal to reach.

      Nevertheless I hope to use this challenge as a chance to keep myself motivated.

      I play on IronPoker. Start was on 27-03-2016 and starting bankroll was 244,67€ (200€ deposit + 44,67€ deposit bonus).

      A little help might be the deposit bonus of 200% which could accumulate up to 400€.

      I'll follow the idea of this tankroll bankroll management.

      I don't want to set a time limit, but as to have some smaller goals I'll try to play 1.000 hands per day or 7.000 per week.

      So far I played in total 1611 hands on NL10 and NL20, 9-max, and the bankroll is at 275,75€ [Since start: +31,08€; including 10€ bonus].

      As a side effect I like to improve my english. So if at any time you find some terrible mistakes in my use of language please feel free to tell me right away.

      Best regards,
      Tom

      Hey Tom,

      Can you go back to your opt in post and adjust your target to a minimum of 5x your starting BR?

      Hello Lazza,

      I did as you asked and updated my goal for this challenge.

      So as if 1000€ hadn't been a tough goal to reach already my new goal now is 1223,35€ (Interessting number at least)

      As I'm updating here anyway I can as well write down the numbers of my 'progress':

      My bankroll now is 248,80€ [Since start +4,13€, including 15€ bonus].

      I played 3239/4000 hands on NL10 & NL20.

      I payed 21,20€ entry-fee to 10 tournaments and got back 11,98€ which makes it - 9,22€.

      If we look at results only, this week clearly was a success to my bankroll after I ruined it last week. However I don't feel very comfortable about my performance.
      Big question to solve coming weeks is whether it does make sense to play both cash and tournament (and maybe even SNG, STT) at the same time.
      Is it possible to show your A-game in all of these variations at the same time or are the thinking processes just to different and thus interfere with each other.

      Second problem is that I'm missing a tracking software hence I cannot keep track of my hands and tournaments played properly as the display provided by IronPoker doesn't work as well.

      If somebody reading this knows a solution exempt from charge I'd be grateful.

      Also I'm far away from my goal of 7k hands/week and the tankroll bankroll management might not be a good choice for me. Will have a look on this for 2 more weeks and then probably adjust it.

      3209/7000 this week / 8784 total
      + 60,79€ this week / + 16,12€ total
      256,71€

      Hey, how is it going?

      I'd like to remind you that you have one yellow card in our Bankroll Challenge, if you don't report your progress from last week, you'll unfortunately get a red one and be removed from the challenge :(
