      Hi,
      i will start a new challenge this year to keep me motivating.
      I have so many goals, but will start with small one.
      I have some very good results back 2011-2012 but spended all and then go on tilt and i think i am on tilt from years.
      I will try here to refresh my poker game and start be a good winning player.
      Goal for this year is to make 5k-10k and take some hours from good coaches.
      I start with couple starscoin, win sunday storm ticket, then play 0.10$&0.25$ reach 50$ start playing 0.5$ now i am on 51.25$ i will play this limit until i reach 100$ then will mix this with 1$ sng.
      I will try to post from time to time if there is interest.

      :gl:

      By $1 SNGs, do you mean regular speed 45-mans or KO 9-mans? The $1 45-mans are very beatable, the problem is that there are not enough of them at offpeak hours for me to 30-table or even to 12-table them :f_biggrin: , but you're probably not comfortable playing that many tables anyway, so they'll work well for you.

      P.S. Would you mind us mentioning this blog on today's Moshman show? :f_wink:

      No, sttoil didn't mean NL25 but meant $0.10 turbo 360-man, $0.25 regular speed 45-90-man and $0.50 turbo 45-180-man SNGs, which are so insanely soft that one indeed has a good chance of building a bankroll there starting from $2, grinding a mix of $0.10s and $0.25s initially.

      I even cashed $80 out of my $100 roll because $20 are more than enough for an established regular playing mix of $0.50 and $1 45-mans :f_drink: (and also enough for $1 KO 9-mans, actually). A beginner might indeed need to have $100 to start playing $1s.

      I am happy that i found my passion back for poker.
      But i am disapointed from my resullt.

      Also i start play 0.5$ - 1$ sng my brm is around 50$-60$.

      Hello again,
      I win 1.5$ 45man and 1$ 90man in one session.
      I am very happy my Roi is back to 55% hope i can save for as long as possibke and i start thinking i am crushing this limits.
      Also i have finish in top 70-80ppl in 0.55$ MTT loosing flip with AJ vs 33.
      If i can keep these Roi and this volume i will finish my challenge soon then 2 months.

      Are you playing the 4.50 on demand or are they too slow for your taste?

      Hey nsavov you bg yes?
      I played becouse nothing else to play under 5$ they boring becouse prize is too small for the time i need to play them.
      But i like to play on 12 table, start doing shit when i play less table so i put some of them, hoping for MTT ship soon.
      i think will start play 3.5$R like freezout just one byuin.

      Hoping but nothing happen, yestarday i finish 13 on 6max 5$PKO today i finish 22 on 5$ deepstack.
      Yestarday i was almost tilted for the first time from open this challenge when i finish 13 place.
      I was really hoping i will finish the challenge by now, but when i look back at the start i come down, thats why i open this blog.
      Also blog motivating me to play and to study more.
      I start play 7$ spins becouse nothing there to play in day shedule hope for MTT wins soon and hope my litle br will handle the suings until then.
      I am planing to open more rooms in future like 4 or 5 room and will follow 100byuins in each, then will have like 400-500byuins brm.
      Here my graph by now on 5-10$ tourney i will be happy to have something like 20%-30% Roi.
      https://prnt.sc/me7lze

      It's dangerous to play $7 spins if you've never been a spin regular before. Play a few hundred $3 or $5 games first, then look at your graph in chips, with 'Display All-In Equity' ticked, to see if your Net Expected Chips Won (the yellow line) is at least 75 chips per game; if not, then it's yet less profitable for you to play $7 spins than the softer $3 ones in terms of $EV per hour (even if we disregard the variance!). Maybe even start with $1 games or play traditional SNGs instead.

      Most of the time you'll just play for twice the buy-in. Every now and then you'll hit the 4x or 6x multipliers. But everything else is a long shot.
