      My challenge right now is to get my deposit of 25$ to 50$.... I know it doesn't seem as much... but each time I think of higher to get over this NL2 bump, I almost get discouraged...

      So let's start with this... I felt I would like to keep you informed about all my things and you may (or may not) want to comment some hands. Please do though :D

      Started 25$ approx. 1 month ago, but due to school (still running right now until dec 15th: college) I havent been putting much volume. I have put in 6.7k hands...

      My BR is of now at 33.34$
      and after so many bad beats and a day where 5 out of my 7 AA's were cracked without losing my bankroll, I have almost become tiltproof. (I write almost because you do not know what may happen :P )

      Hand of the day :)

      Good Luck with your challenge, don’t get discouraged with the bad players at NL2. If you can find a few fish and add them to your buddy list you got a goldmine.

      Good Luck.
