      I just turned 20 and i switched from MTTs to cashgames. (SH and HU)

      my bankroll on bwin is 2000$ after some ridiculus bukakke-downswing on nl200.

      ill play nl100 starting jan 1st or 2nd and my first goal will be to reach 7500$ by feb 1st. if i can't do this i'll have to get a job (real life propbet).

      This means ill really have to dedicate every hour im awake in january to poker.

      my bankroll management is:

      0-3500$: nl100
      3500$-10000$: nl200
      10000$+: nl400+

      ill update every night with number of hands and results, and occasionally with graphs. another goal is to stay the fuck away from MTTs

      Happy Newyear everybody, see you on the other side

      Interesting start to the blog, i wonder whether being money oriented could affect your play, but i guess you haven't got a choice....

      Gl on your challenge

      Hi!
      Im deffo gonna follow your blog.
      Wish you good luck with poker and smooth moving up the limits.

      1thing that I would like to suggest you..
      - Dont set yourself money oriented goals.
      Its not only up to your skills how much money will you make in shortterm.
      If you wanna make it real challenge, take your bb/hh, n count how many hands should you play to earn those 5,5k ..

      If you ll manage to play that amount of hands then your challenge was succesful n in long-term you most probably made those 5,5k USD during this period, eventhough the net winnigs might differ.

      Again, Good Luck;)

      thanks for the gl's everyone :D

      i wouldn't set myself a moneygoal if i didn't have to, but if i don't make it to 7500$ ill have to get a job, so.. meh. :f_biggrin:

      at 10bb/100 I'll have to play 55k hands, which certainly isn't impossible, but seeing as im perfectly capable of fucking up a cup of coffee, this is not at all a piece of cake.

      you can also take into account rakeback, which I'm sure would be over $1000 in 55k hands .. unless you're taking into account rakeback

      I didn't get to play on the 1st of january, as i decided to drink an entire bottle of rum in 20 mins on newyears eve. the hangover is almost gone now (evening of jan 2nd)

      So... my first playing day was january the 2nd. running about a buyin below EV over my first 1,5k hands, still netting a decent profit tho

      Hands: 1602

      Result: 299,40$

      if i can manage to keep this phase up ill be alright

      good luck in '10 everybody
