Challenge: 500-> 5k (10x)

Hi, I like to introduce myself. My name is fishmasterp, and I am a losing delusional poker player. I like to tell myself each loss is a lesson. Its okay, as long as you take something away from it. Some people pay a little, some people pay a lot, that's just how it is. Well I'm a boss so I pay a lot. Like I said, delusional borderline crazy. S

Anyway my overall online poker online record is -6k YTD w/ like 4% roi. I am starting w/ a $500 deposit on a well known site. I will not be following bank roll management, and will be playing low stakes; 200nl, and tournaments up to $200+15 w/ focus on around quarter ($25) online birds.


June 22 - bought in to 3 tournaments (2x 20+2, 1x 10+1) extremely late around 1k bb 5-10k ss. 24 hands go by, and I donk double up my stacks. I open a 100nl plo game. I proceed to lose couple flips ( will post hands when I get back to my PC) and busto all 3 tourneys. I win ~$9 bucks playing abc plo. Bankroll is @453. Was about to call it a night, when I noticed a 90$ buyin tourney about to close with about 25/94 remaining 18 makes the money. So I thought "let me min cash this break even for the night". Took 2nd after losing the chip lead when he hits a draw on the river for about 1k. Bankroll is $1419.50, I sit at a 200nl plo w $119.50 trying to hit and run and sleep. End up not waiting for bb, and went did some donk call huge 5b pre, end up w/ a less than half pot shove on flop. Guy casually wakesup with top set to my nothing draw. So bankroll is at $1,300. For some reason I can't sleep, so I decide to do this and put some of my thoughts here.

Thanks for reading and I hope I get some advice on building bankroll for live play.

My advice on building a BR is not to play PLO with 5 buy ins

I apologize for the confusion, so I had decided on the challenge earlier the day June 21, 2017 w/ no intention of making this thread (I am a losing player so I deposit when I get the chance) . At around 9pm EST, I loaded up $500, and I actually made the post after I was telling one of my roommates about the deep run; hes also a poker player of less experience not skill. I mean I'm old enough to know that you can't share your happiness, and to my dismay I "felt" like he was getting annoyed. I'm a feel player live, so I trust my gut (I mean come on, my guts been keeping me alive for years, telling me to eat and sh*t, so why wouldn't I trust it). Just out of all people, I didn't expect to have that from one of my closer friends. But, ladies and gentleman, at the end of the day I feel, like many of you, chose, or is trying to chase the life; but gamblings a lonely one.

Current BR : 1,278
Date : 6/22/17
Plan: The Fish, does not know what focusing on volume means, so he play with intentions of only losing $200 worst case scenario mix of "medium" to "low" buyin tourneys w some 100-200nl PLO or Holdem...

RIGHT NOW? : bought in a $25 early morning tournament last level, double or bust, (just missed a double up Aipf A10 = AQ , on a Q2345 run out.

Will update later today.

Sometime after work, I am going to rewrite this thread somehow. Your right, its very unprofessional, its a disgrace to others who put their time in whom do the same. Sorry community. Cheers Jimmy!

As the "friends" predicted, burned that deposit as well. Made 2 more final tables and ran pretty deep in the sunday PLO before burning the whole account. Will make new thread at a new attempt/.
