      Hello,
      this is my blog for the bankroll challenge, also my first blog in general, amidoinitrite?

      my starting br is 200$(stars), my goal is reaching 1000$
      i plan on mostly playing zoom cashgames, and some mtts on the side (like 80%/20% timewise), mostly zoom also.

      unfortunately at the moment i only have time for short sessions, and in zoom i still have a shot at getting some volume in, also the player pool is usually quite soft, so i decided to zoomZoom :f_biggrin:

      last couple weeks i didnt get to play much, just played a couple minor mtts, but unfortunately didnt manage to ship anything, literally broke even after like 30 games.

      today i played a cash-zoom sess and managed to double up my roll, thanks to some good luck and some successfull shot taking (and extensive bum hunting) i should call my blog bumfights :f_p:

      wonder if anyone reads this, anyways, graphs :

      hey, wow, some prominent viewers, cheers for the read :f_love:
      unfortunately, quite the opposite. played some mtts and had some mayor hardware issues (client freezing, not all tables opening back up after restart) so i basically lost all of em , heh :f_zZz:

      so i am back at around 200$.
      had some mayor issues with my macbook, had to wipe the hdd, hopefully it will run better this weekend.
      also had a free weekend so obviously i was beeing to greedy, went for the big bucks, played way to many mtts compared to cashgames, got punished big time for it ^^..

      i feel like i have the need to explain myself :) i usually dont play that many mtts, because theyre quite time-intensive. but i have a pretty bad cold for the last couple days, so i figured why not ?

      have some bbv for your entertainment, here are my favorite and least favorite hands so far today :

      so theres one guy all in at the start of the hand, but hes sitting out, so no showdown. dat turnminraise (always nuts :f_cool:
