      Hey everybody.

      For those that do not know I'm a retired student engaged in household activities until the end of June. That's basically the nicest way of saying I'm unemployed until further notice. I go by the name of Sean and am 19 years old.

      I basically thought I would start a new Blog to document my plan and my path. I recently deposited $16 on Pokerstars and have run it up to $45 at 2PLO. The games there are super soft, as well as super crazy if you sit with the right people.

      My goals are to..

      - Move out of PLO2 as quickly as possible.
      - Reach (at least) PLO25 by the end of next year.
      - Starting next year, grind my way from PLO25 to Supernova.
      - Get myself a decent desktop computer.

      As of now my Bankroll sits at $45 after a disastrous session where I was one outed, and cooler'd until my tilt prone pants fell down.

      Anyway, here is a graph to document what has been done. The graph isn't matching up with my bankroll because this $16 deposit starts at around the 400 hand mark.

      And with that out of the way, I present to you Woll Smoth.


      May you rungoot for eternity guys.

      Hello SheepMoose,

      Well done on starting a new blog to detail your progress as it is an excellent way to follow your journey and to keep you motivated with your progression as well.

      I have recently started to play PLO2 too and i have just deposited $100 on Stars as a challenge to see how far i can take it. I am currently studying all the articles/videos i can find to help my understanding of the basics and to create a solid base of knowledge to build upon.

      I have added this blog to my favourites and will be popping in regularly to follow your progress.

      All the best,
      -Steve

      Good luck Steve. PLO can be a tilting game especially at the micro's. Good luck grinding your way up from that $100. I'll make sure to follow your progress when possible. :)

      Played a quick session just then after dinner. Yesterday was a day of tilt and suck outs. I ended yesterday up $4 after some stupid shot taking underolled against a fish at PLO50hu, lol.

      Anyway, quick session just went well. Made 2.8 BI's in 83 hands. Only ran 20 cents above EV as well. :)

      That bring's the total bankroll to $61, which is easily enough to grind PLO2 until I have my required 30 BI's for PLO5.

      Tomorrow I have a Pot limit hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha freeroll with a $2k prize pool to play. So tomorrow will probably have me viewing a lot of videos, donking around in some STT's and MTT's, before starting the freeroll at around midnight.

      Cashed in a $0.25/45man SnG last night. Came third for $1.80 I think.

      That plus today's quick PLO session has bought my bankroll to $70. :)

      Anyway I've got that freeroll tonight, so wish me luck!

      Haven't updated in a while but basically my roll went downwards 10 BI's at stars. I was getting annoyed with them after their recent rake changes to so moved the BR to FTP.

      BR: $72
