End Of Month #1

Boy What a rollercoaster!
Quick Recap
started the month off great! then hit a slump where i wasnt playing the best, THEN got sick for a week and a half which also didnt help my play much. But once I got better I hit the books, studied some Hand Histories and Got my Bankroll back on track. Ended the month with $434. The Important thing is I feel a lot healthier now that Im not sick, and I can think a lot more clearly. Ill try to make more vids in the month to come, but I cant make too many promises, I said yes to some work out of state and the Internet seems to be like a luxury I may not have for most the month. way to kill my challenge right? Ill figure it out, Im not terribly worried.

Thanks for stopping by!

Update

So, I played a lot of $2 HU Hypers, and when I felt my game had returned, I stepped Back up to $6 HU Hypers. Finally a good week! Granted Ive been running moderately, but I managed to have my first winning week since Week 1. Currently My Bankroll is at $370. The way Ive been running Ill take it. I wasn’t just running bad, I was making small mistakes that Added Up. A ton of the players at this Buy In Level just don’t play as aggressive as I am Used to, and as a result I was stacking off way too light, and making calls that really should only be applied at Higher Levels. I studied a bit and corrected a lot of my more common mistakes.

As you can see I thankfully turned things around a bit.

Obviously Id like to be doing better In my challenge, but For now I feel like making sure I have a strong grasp on the basics, is more important than jumping up stakes. Looking forward to posting my End of the month graph. 🙂

A Small Amount of Reflection

So Every Day I play with 5% of my Bankroll. For example Today I fired up some tables, broke out the calculator and saw that 5% of my BR was 15$. If I lost 15$ I call it a day. I decided to play 6$ Hyper Turbos. The Obvious Problem being If I lose 2 in a row, There Goes my Day. I think Im going to Grind 2$ Hypers All Week that way I can Actually Grind a Day out versus having a very short session. Hopefully It works out, Im doing this since Ive been on the wrong side of Variance the past 2 weeks. Im almost over My Illness, I feel well enough to play at least, So Put me in Coach!

 

 

Hope everyones doing well!

Weekly Update

Hey Guys!
So my run bad continued a bit this week, I dropped 13 buy ins not playing my best while being sick, some of that was a 10 game losing streak. Its tough, but my co worker got me sick and Ive been trying to grind after work when All I really can think about is laying down. My last day of work for this job is tomorrow, so Im hoping the weekend Rest will shake this head cold and I can Be back on the grind. Although I will say Im not happy reporting the loss this week, Im still feeling very confident about Running It back up soon. Im staying as focused as I can be, as well as self Critiquing hands I butcher.

My Bankroll is currently $327.19. Ill try to post my graph this weekend. Thanks for Reading!

Week #2 Update

Image

Hey Guys! so above is my graph for Week #2. As you can see, I hit a bit of variance, but thats how it goes sometimes. The graph is showing my results since starting the challenge. Im back in the swing of things, and on the bright side, when I have a losing day, that gives me time to study and focus more. Week 3 should be interesting, since Im working on a Milk Commercial all week, and Am not really too sure how much of a grind I can do. As always Ill post my results. Currently my Bankroll is at (drumroll) $417.28. Not that big of an increase from last week, something like 5% actually, but its better than reporting a loss so Ill take it :). I also Uploaded another video of me playing the $6 HU Hyper stakes this week, I recorded it with a new microphone so you can hear me now. Thanks for reading!

Running Bad

So Week 2 isn’t going so hot. Per my 5% BR restriction I had a stellar day where I won 15% of my BR getting up to $480, but have proceeded to lose 5% of my BR every following day so currently I’m at $384. It sucks when your running bad, all you wanna do is play more and get unstuck. It feels like there’s a magnifying glass on you and only you, but the point is I need to focus on the big picture. This blog needs to last a year so going broke trying to get Unstuck isn’t going to get me anywhere. But it might make a good read :). JK. Ill post my graph on Sunday since the week isn’t out. I’m sure the Run good will come back sooner than later.

End of my first Week

Hey!

So I finished my first week! Had some pretty good results, I started with my Bankroll just under $300, roughly $280. I never wanted to lose more than 5% of my Bankroll in any given day, so under those guidlines I started with $6 HU Hyper Turbo SNGS. TBH obviously those are super swingy, but Im super comfortable with the swings, and I play those mostly. So I ran about 9% ROI for the week, only had 2 losing days, one day I lost 5% and the following day I couldnt get any traction and just lost 1% after going up and down for a while. The rest of my week, was a pretty relaxing pace in the right direction. My Bankroll is currently $406.39 almost 1/20th of where it needs to be, but it did at least increase 45% which is awesome 🙂 . should be a fun challenge! Below is a graph:Image

 

I started a Youtube channel you can follow some of my videos Here.

Hope all is well!
