      Good evening everyone,

      time to get back to the tables, where i once started, 10 years ago.


      Why did i stop? Simply because i was tired off all the information overload at the tables.

      When i first started playing in 2006 there was nothing like software tracking, at least it has not been that popular. When suddenly it became popular, of course i had to go with the swarm and track the hell out of my opponents.
      No more easy playing, just staring at these numbers which tell you when to exploit whom and where to set a tiny value bet against this nit and that fish. Jesus Christ, that was not the game i once loved playing when i first sat down at the Nl2 tables on PartyPoker.

      Anyways, since i heard about this new format Snap or Zoom poker, where tracking is forbidden im curious to get back to the tables since i have left a small amount of my old bankroll on my good old netteller account (~200$).

      Have been playing NL50 back in the days, will restart with NL10.

      Goal is of course $1000 as proposed and rejoining the NL50 tables

      My personal rules are as following:

      :diamond: 15 buyins for shots at the next limit
      :diamond: 20 buyins for moving up
      :diamond: dropping back to previous lvl when losing 10 stacks
      :diamond: playing ~10 to 15h / week
      :diamond: ~35% work on theory (videos, coachings, books)
      :diamond: ~65% focused playing 2 tables SNAP poker, 6max. on 888

      Let the fun begin. :f_drink:

      Doh - that escalated quickly :spit:

      Times have changed, brother. These guys have become nitty as hell, holy lord :f_p:

      Seems good ol`30/24/3.5 playstyle is not accurate anymore, will have to adapt i guess.
      See u on next monday, Reborn Vol.2

      Ui, that graph does not look so awesome!
      Maybe check out our livestreams or our liveplay videos to see how the game today is running?

      anyway, GL and welcome back!

      Changed PokerRoom to TigerGaming since 888 restricted my account for whatever reasons.
      Sadly no Snap Poker to be found there. So Im currently multitabling 4 tables NL 10.
      Playing way more tight now. Close to break even over the last 3k hands.
      ...tbc....

      Week 1 :
      hands played: ~ 2.500
      - $10
      Bankroll: 190$
