      Hello people!
      I will have a long term side fun challenge
      where I try to run up $10 into $1000
      RULES:
      I will play exclusively when I can't play my regular stakes when
      - I'm tired
      - tilted
      - hit stop-loss for the day
      - am ill
      - it's late at night, my games don't run
      - when recording microstakes coachings
      So I play some poker instead of video games and watching shows. Expect low volume, volatile results
      I might even stream some
      Let's see how we do, this will be a marathon!
      Cashgames, SNG, HUSNG, MTT, INSTANT ALL-INS - everything goes.

      I'll play without a hud as it's just to relax so I'll post hours and multiply them by hands every week

      WEEK1 - WAS ILL SO GOT VOLUME!
      Next week I'll be happy if I put in a couple hours

      HOURS: 11
      Hands: 1320
      SnGs:6
      BR start:$10
      BR end:$36.27 , +$26.27


      NO HUD OR TRACKER so the volume is approximation (2 table cash games at a time , 1 table with SnGs)
      Check out LIVE COACHINGS: HUDless Chickens
      Tonight 20:00 @ https://www.twitch.tv/pokerstrategydotcom to see where and how I play without a HUD

      I just realized Mr. RukovGrind needed 100,000 hands to go from $100 to $1,000
      We're increasing BR 10x more as we start at $10 so we might need 1,000,000 hands
      with 1,000 hands per week this challenge will be complete in a beatiful year 2036 ladies and gentlemen xD

      What's up boys and girls
      Only put in a couple tourneys last week, this week didn't play so far, I'll try to put in a few hands tomorrow

      I probably did tilt last couple weeks, but the results have been great (Made $1.2k 4 tabling NL50 without a HUD in 2 weeks, the most yet) so I didn't realize and there wasn't need to tilt on stream :P

      So I will at least leave you with Stars support emails
      From back when they moved to Starcoins and I had a few missing for a bonus

      ME:


      THEIR RESPONSE:



      I actually took her, and it was good fun :D

      Wow this is harder than it seems
      Last week took a break
      Week6 just a couple SnGs
      Managed to lose this pre-flop All-in oops :)

      I've actually instead of streaming been going back to real life activities when tired/tilted.
      In total I clocked in over 33productive IRL hours there every week past 3 weeks

      That counts time spent with girlfriend
      Meeting new people through meetup.com
      I went meditating next to the river multiple times
      Went to a cool concert
      Mother's 60th birthday in the woods
      Some EU festival thingy
      Zen Meditation Group
      Gym with a buddy

      And others instead of streaming
      So We'll see how it goes I'm gonna try to throw in a few hours this week again :)

      And when I did play this genius won AI PF vs me like this :]

      Actually managed to put in 30 mins grind today!
      Felt unfocused at NL50 - NL100 so went for it
      Turns out I needed to just poop out the 2kg of chicken wings I shared with my girlfriend last night :D

      AA hand
      PRE
      Open UTG, get a couple callers, and small blind squeezes large to 25 big blinds

      I think the right play here is to always flat with his way too large sizing
      As it'll be easy to get it in postflop against him, and we get to let one of the weaker players come along


      And we win a nice pot, getting extra 100bb than if we 4bet




      next hand
      We raise, get to go 3 way on the flop
      FLOP
      I'd flat always without reads here
      -we have a lot of draws, weaker pairs etc. that it's great to keep stronger hands in
      And SB should be 55,66 heavy and have not so many draws so when we get it in we often are flipping or pretty much destroyed .

      But i had a read that this guy's too loose, and pots on really bad boards for it
      So went with my read there




      Shoved the turn after he called and had a nice sized pot again





      Well that's all folks
      I think I'll only put in challenge in the challenge if I run terribly bad over the next 3 days and need to de-tilt

      WEEK16
      Hands played: 2,000
      BR:$312.18
      BR: $252.62
      Profit: $59.56

      THESE CHESTS ARE SO ADDICTIVE
      I must say on this Cheezburger challenge I'm basically just a rec player
      i have my regular 9-5 job at NL50 and NL100 on other sites

      And come here to have fun
      And when I come home 3am after taking my awesome girlfriend home
      I put in 15 minutes of sick grind just to clear that boost and get that extra chest i otherwise wouldn't
      then switch it all off don't play for another day or two :D
