      After loosing my initial starting capital and loosing a bit over the fair months i deposited 79 dollars yesterday. I had a good day yesterday winning 25 dollars and carried off where i left off this morning for approximately 5 minutes winning 8 dollars then i took a major downswing!! Morale through the floor, i lost $50 but kept at it making my play even tighter and more aggressive and clawed back the majority of my money.

      As we speak my bank roll is currently at $97.23



      Don't be too hard on me :D

      My goals are to not drop below my original starting BR and increase my current bankroll daily. Im not sure why it is showing $-80 unless it has calculated my previous lost bankrolls so i have to make $100 before i break even

      A quick update

      Its now day 2 and i am up to $124.59. Cash game is proving to have some significant downsings but compensates by some donkeys being in the hand when i have my upswings

      Graph for Day 2



      Ihave also included a daily chart, the lowest point was yesterday when i got myself together after studying poker strategy for a while. So on the whole i have had a rise in my bankroll. It would be nice to get my bankroll to $150 by tommorow but we will see what happens
