That is quite a small sample size. I wouldn't worry about being break even for that small a sample, just keep at it and the results should improve.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Played about 1600 hand this morning as I will be away in the evening. Played a mix of NL25 rush and NL50 rush. Lost about $100, most of it on 1 hand at NL50. Gonna stick to NL25 rush for now. Looking forward to getting this rush week over and back to playing regular tables. Will probably play some NL50 then.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Played 1779 hands today. Won $84.06. Rush week is over and I earned the $50 bonus. For my little rush poker experience I think I did very well. Heres my stats

NL25
Hands played: 8461
$ Won: $253.39
bb/100: 11.98

NL50
Hands played: 228
$ Won: -$97.45
bb/100: -85.48

Adding the $50 bonus means I profit a little over $200 for my rush play.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Well done with the Rush Poker week.

I made the $10 bonus - it's an interesting game - was good to play when I went on tilt - got a lot of hands in a quick period of time. Yeah, I'll admit it.

Anyway, glad to see you went back down a level, even if temporarily...it certainly seems to be paying off.

Keep up the good work.

Haha dunno about playing rush to get rid of tilt!

Yeah definetly glad I moved down. Playing NL25 I could make a load of money, but I feel my game can't grow beyond a certain point which I'm pretty close to at the moment. The step up to NL50 is quite big. I did run under EV at NL50 last time so that explains a bit of it. I'll try it again tomorrow and see if I can stay there this time.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Played 2117 hands today. Lost $117. Pretty bad considering I was up $75. 5 biggest pots of the day were all losing.

Guy makes a hero call here, guess I dont really rep much other than AA/KK/QQ. Prob should have just shipped river.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Hi everybody and hi LygerWon
This is my first post here so stay cool with me

I subscribed this thread because you are my inspiration LygerWon

I also play NL25 and i try to make the progres as you do but i really have problem with it.
My quastion is - do you play at once ~ 1000 hands or you play few sesions per day? I mean do you play 2-3 hours, then you make a break or you just play as long as you can in a row.

What would be your or other people's suggestion to organize the playing hours?
And maybe you could suggest something that could help with solving my problem - I play 4 tables NL25 , after 1-1.5 hour I double the stack ( my stats are: 20/16/AF2.2/3bet 4.0) and after another 0.5 hour i spew it all because of tons of stupid decisions and i finish the sesion minus 1-2 buy-ins and that scenario repeats over 20ths hands. I play poker for a year and for 4 months i've been watching coaching videos.

Please help me guys

Maybe you know some other threads to ask those quastions?

I usually play for about an hour at a time. So thats about 400-600 hands depending on how many tables I play. I'll play 2/3 sessions a day.

Are you playing 6max or FR. If FR your playing very loose and a little passive post flop. Not sure how those stats relate to 6max exactly.

Yeah the $5k is unlikely to happen at this stage. Would like to reach $4k though. At $2.3k at the moment.

Well another losing day today. I actually won at NL50 and lost at NL25. Down $29.30 for the day. Total BR @ $2,247. I have two days left to rescue this week. Would be my first losing week if I cant pull it together.

Today was a good day, not sure exactly how many hands I played because of the problem with HEM importing hands after FT's latest update, but I won about $80. Total BR now @ $2,327
