Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Lost $16 yesterday and won $32 today, ran pretty bad today so happy to win a bit. Had AA v KK twice and KK v AA once, lost them all...

Only got 12 hours of play for the week so happy with the results.

Graph for the week

Busted in 37th for $120. Lost a race with AKs v TT. Would have been 8th if I won

Edit: Forgot to say I lost $70 yesterday, not too dissapointed though as was up $75EV

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Didn't play much yesterday but managed to win $65. Lost ~$110 today. Running so bad this week. Almost $300 below all in EV, playing mostly NL25 with some NL50. Can't win a KK v AA situation even though I'nm usually the one with AA. Down about $150 for the week not counting the $120 I won in the freeroll. Might take a day off tomorrow, not sure yet.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

So this week has been a total disaster in terms of reults, my first losing week of the challenge unless I win $130+ tonight. Sucks to run bad every time I play NL50 and now I'm running bad at NL25 as well

Total BR @ $3,239. Getting rakeback tommorrow so at least with that + the $120 tourney cash I make a slight profit for the week

Graph for the week.

No I'm not working for the summer. I spend a lot of time playing golf though, I play almost every day so thats 4-5 hours a day gone. Got my handicap down to 2 and hoping to reach 1 by the end of august, then going back for my final year in college.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Played a short session and won $31, but more importantly I just ordered Tri Nguyen's book, The Poker Blueprint as a hard copy, has got great reviews so looking forward to reading that

Thinking of playing more 6max as well, but I think I will see out the summer at FR.

Keep it up. The summer is almost over and you still need to grind some big wins

Thanks, tbh though I'm not gonna put a whole load of hours in just to try reach the $5k, I'll just keep grinding away at my rate and if I don't reach the $5k the summer has still been a success. Also I have plenty of iron man points and FTP's that I have built up during the summer which I will spend on tourney tickets at the end to give my bankroll and extra boost Not sure but should get 6-8 $26 tickets

Anyway, back to the present, I won almost $150 today in just over 1k hands so another good day. I actually ran over EV at NL50 as well which was great. Middle set actually held against OESFD

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Today wasn't so good, lost $25,

Got a bit cocky in this hand, such a stupid bluff, I rep such a small range of strong hands and the guy figured it out.

I think I just got unlucky here to run into a set, he folds most aces, and he could have been floating the flop, I should have 3bet more pre alright, I just clicked pot and expected it to be more.

I read through your thread in 1 big haul up to a week ago and seeing you post this i'd like to respond.
It seems, to me at least, that you're taking more risks with bluffing compared to at the start of your challenge.
I've personally gone through this development and it ended up with me taking a agressive shot, failing, grinding back up, taking the agressive shot again and then not going back down (but going near broke).
So far you seem much more disciplined then me so i could be wrong and i doubt you'll tilt enough to go broke on shot taking


ninja edit: i'm slowly building back up, finally having set a stop-loss and following more conservative bankroll management
