      Hey Renno,

      Are you playing SNAP or regular tables, and how many tables?

      Hey Lazza61
      I`am going to play regular tables and 4-6 tables . I think regular tables I can focus more on the opponents and earn more money than snap tablse. I`m sorry if my english is bad , but I hope you understand me. You can fix me if you see that I am writing wrong .=)

      So I made my deposit and my bankroll is $ 135.
      Soon, I'll start with my first session.

      The first 888 poker session was done. It was very unusual for somehow to play there. Strange is that nl2 is a max amount of $ 1.
      I'll get used to it, initially, I'll try to just get to know the opponents there, and I'm playing very concisely at the moment.
      MTT - $-1,5
      Cash - +1,63


        1) Hands 803/ 50 000
        2) Review hands There was only one big loss in the 2 biggest wins
        3) Play 1/5
        4) Study 0/5
        5) Post hands1/10
        6) Bankroll 135,17/ 1000
        7) Work out 3/3

      Totally agree. I'm generally an MTT player but when I do play cash tables, I prefer regular tables so I can get reads on villains.

      I would play MTT as well, but unfortunately, since I only have time to play late at night, it is not possible to make long sessions.
      3 h is the maximum per day I play in the evening because I need to go to work in the morning. That's why I decided that I would start playing cash tables .

      The previous session was still pretty bad. I was like big .

      I did everything that one normal poker player should not do . My biggest problem is that I can not concentrate and then I'm just going to look around the internet.
      Today I start to watch it strictly and try to do my best to not surf the internet just like during the session.
      MTT - -0,5$
      Cash - - 2,11$

        Hands 2326/ 50 000
        Review hands There was only one big loss in the 3 biggest wins
        Play 2/5
        Study 0/5
        Post hands 1/10
        Bankroll 132,56/ 1000
        Work out 3/3




      I looked at my session and most of the minuses came from the fact that I called the preflop with my hands, which I had to have folded, and thanks to that, I caught a lot of money.

      I played some casino games and got my bankroll $250.
      Thanks to this I start playing nl5. If I lose over 10 BI then I go down to the NL 2.
      NL5 I start playing 2-4 tables at once, according to how I feel there.

      Casino games are no longer playing because I know that I can easily miss that money.

      1) Hands 4592 / 50 000
      2) Review hands
      3) Play 1/5
      4) Study 1/5
      5) Post hands 1/10
      6) Bankroll 250,19/ 1000
      7) Work out 1/3

      For your cash game, run your hand in Leakbuster, it make it easier to spot what your doing that is bleeding your bankroll. get the free trial, just to set the guideline on which spot you need to concentrate your study on.

      Yesterday I played NL5. Fortunately , I lost only 1 BI . I started there with 4 tables , I felt really bad there. Finally , I played only 2 tables. It´s been a long time since I played last time on cash tables. I decided to continue to nl2 and play those 50 000 hands to there . I hope that by that time I have returned my confidence. For me it´s important that i feel secure on the tables .

      Hey, I´m a litel sick at the moment and have not played a lot. Yesterday I tried , but I didn´t feel so good I stopped the playing.
      At the moment my bankroll is $610. But that´s because I´ve been sick and have played casino games and I´ve been lucky there.
      I´m going to keep the casino and cash/mtt game money separate.
      Because the idea of this journey is to reach my goal by playing cash and mtt games .
      I hope that tomorrow I will be healthier and I can continue my journey .
      But so far
