      Oh hi there!

      I read about this tankroll challenge and thought it would be really interesting to do. So I will start it right away.
      I will start playing on zoom shorthanded tables. A limit that is not in the tankroll challenge is NL16, which I might try, need to check after a while.

      Ok, I was going to insert a picture of my starting bankroll, which is $133.05 at the point of starting but I don't seem to know how or chrome is not supporting this site.. I might update that later below.

      I will start single tabling at NL10! Here we go!

      Ok guys,

      The first game on NL10 didn't go so well, ended up at -$0,66 after 169 hands. There was a bit of nervosity involved since I started this challenge, but I took every hand seriously because stakes are higher than usual and the bankroll minimal. What happened though was that I entered the competition cardmatch, which entitles you to participate in a lottery where one can win up to $1000 and I started it, of course, and won three times. Three times is the maximum number of wins per day, I think. I didn't win $1000 though, only $2, $0.5 twice and $1 once. This makes my result positive for the day. So bankroll after session 1:
      $134,39 (+$1,34)!

      Can anyone tell me how I can post a picture, I have holdemmanager2 so I could post some graphs and stats, but when I press the picture button a screen pops up asking for an url, but I wan't to post it from my computer. Can I not do that?

      Oh well, that's all for today folks! Bye!

      Hey DanDule,

      The easiest way to upload pictures is to save the image to your desktop and then simply drag and drop it into your post.

      Looking forward to big giraffes with long necks. :f_thumbsup:

      Have fun :gl:

      Hello again!

      I changed my goal from tankroll challenge to playing 100 000 hands before the end of the year at lower limits, but I noticed it would be impossible because I'm a dad and have a job, so I'm back at the tankroll challenge.

      So what has happened since 15.10? I will show you in a couple of photos:




      So I resumed the tankroll challenge yesterday and played NL10. I ended up with more than $160 so I started with NL25 today, but lost enough for me to drop down in stakes. I altered the stakes a bit to suit me better so i start playing NL16 at 9 buy-ins and move to NL25 at $200. This way I will feel a bit safer.

      If you wan't to read more about the tankroll strategy you can read from this page: https://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/bss/tankroll-bankroll-management-150-1000/1/

      That's all for today. I promise I'm gonna be updating more often from now on since this is the challenge i'm gonna do until the end of the year at least.

      Bye!

      Hello

      Shitty day today. Nothing held up and I might have gone a bit on tilt, need to review a bit tomorrow to be certain.

      Here's some photos for you guys to laugh at so you can feel good about your day:





      So I started at NL16 which went quite ok for a while but then I got involved in a few pots which I lost and meant that I needed to go down to NL10.
      But I don't actually feel so sad because this is a fun challenge. Played for about an hour today. Let's see if I can get some more hands in tomorrow.

      Hi Hi Dandule,

      I reckon you will make it back up especially with a good approach like you have.
      Can you post a few of your hands from this session for us to evaluate for you?

      Ok, so I thought I'm gonna post a few hands from yesterday's terribru session.

      This first hand should have been folded to river shove. Or maybe checked river when I think about it... what would you guys have done?

      Also i notice that four of these hands is when I try to 3bet vs late position raiser. Maybe not bet so easily on the flop with air? Well anyways I did this to just show a few hands from yesterday that didn't go so well.

      I played some today also and it went much better. More on that tomorrow.

      I found at least the call in the first hand on the river very questionable. Is there anything but a bluff that you beat here? Will KQ raise there? For sure not...

      Still, GL in our Bankroll challenge!

      Hello Again!

      I Joined the Get Rich or Die Tryin' challenge last week on sunday.
      My result for the first week was the following:

      Hands: 3288
      Result: +$8.13
      Start Bankroll: $147.51
      Now Bankroll: $155.65
      Goal: $1000
      Weeks: 1





      As you can see I have won $27,16 on holdemmanager but I have unfortunately played some games on my mobile so I don't have all the hands. Need to stop mobile gaming lol.

      I have been playing mostly nl 10 and nl 16 zoom, but lately I started trying to play regular 6-max and that's a lot more profitable. Because that's where I found a lot of fish! And I have also been practicing playing according to a new preflop strategy, it's a bit tighter than before, I was kinda LAG before but trying to be more TAG and see where it leads me.

      That's all for this time, seeya!

      he there, you play many different tables/limits. I'd concentrate on one and become the king there for now while learning!

      See you,SvenBe
