      Hi Poker Girls and Dudes,

      First a little bit about me :D

      I'm am Jason, 27 years old and live in The Netherlands. I play poker for 8 years now mostly MTT's and Spin and Go's. At this time a play poker just for fun beside my normal job, maybe sometime as professional xD but I have a lot of work to do before I can call myself professional :transpire: .

      Today I started a spin and Go challenge on Pokerstars. My goal is to build up a bankroll from $25 to $1000. I started playing spin's with a buy-in of $0,25 (100 buy-in's). My goal is to play a minimum of 10 spin's a day.

      My first session was today and i'm currently 11 buy-in up! I've played 15 spins and won 9, had 2 6x spins. That makes a total of $27,75.



      Hopefully a new update tomorrow!

      Are you with me in this challenge? Let me know!:f_cool:

      Regards Jason

      Current bankroll: $29,50
      Profit: $4,50
      Spins played: 154

      Hi Jason,

      Really interesting challenge and I'm gonna follow your progress through your journey towards the end goal! I've been back to the tables recently after quite a while and playing Spin&Go's challenges on Pokerstars as well. I've been playing 0.40 - 2 EUR buy-in spins and increased my poor bankroll from 3,50 EUR I had left in my account to 30 EUR so far in just a few days with sessions of max 2 hours.

      I'm curious to know what strategy are you following on this spins, and if you're multitabling. I currently stick with a push/fold strategy suggested in a strategy article for 1 $ spins, though I've been playing mostly 2 EUR spins and still finding gamblers. Personally, I still need to gain confidence with effective stack size and hand ranges from different positions so I will keep playing with this strategy for a bit. However, I'd like to start a challenge like yours over the next months, so this is a good example to look at!

      Good luck!
