Clear Makeup. Go on my own. Top 10 Yearly TLB. Win money.

Hi,

I'm Marc, Rowniwn on Stars. I grind MTTs for a living.
It's 10 in the morning now and I can't sleep after a long session and the idea of attention whoring came to my mind.

A litte bit about myself:

I'm 21 from Germany. I started playing poker with friends when I was around 16.
We played almost every week for 3 years in our little homegame and poker got me hooked very quickly.
After I turned 18 I started playing online. After running up and busting 50$ a few times I got kinda annoyed and switched to Pokerstars to deposit 25$ dollars. Grinded the 1$ SnGs for a while and switched to micro cash after that. I built up a decent size roll first masstabling fullring. Then I switched over to 6max and 8 tabled my way to around 10k profit in cash while finishing school.
I started daddling in MTTs on sundays and realized how much more fun they are. After school I didn't know what to do for a while and decided to play poker "fulltime". I won like 3 small micromtts and obv thought I am the best ever. After going on a little downswing I panicked and tried to figure out what to do. I always lurked 2+2 so decided I'll try to give it a shot and seek for backing. Fortunately Zima decided to stake me without any posting history or refs. I played for him from Oct 2010 until Black Friday.


graph until black friday

Luckily when that sad day hit I wasn't in makeup. On the same day I broke my foot. A complicated fracture was diagnosed and a surgery was needed.
No matter how brutal this was for me at that time (I played football and basketball 3-4 days a week) it was probably the best thing that could happen for my pokercareer.

So I was lying on my gf couch all day and decided, **** it, let's rebuild with the 200$ I have left in my account after the last cashout with Zima.
With a little inspiration from Rich's (chilin_dude) thread I decided to grind my way up with 180s. As the games after black friday were really really soft and I had plenty of time as I couldn't walk for 4 months I built myself a decent roll playing 2s, then 8s/15s and mixing in some MTTs.

I broke up with my girlfriend a few months later. After 3 years we had basically the same social circle which annoyed me a lot even tho there was never a huge fight or anything, but I realized I needed something new.
(no pics of exgf, sorry) So realizing the freedom I had being single and that I could "work" from basically anywhere in the world I decided drunk, in the middle of the night, to book a flight to Malta and spend some time there.
Problem was all money I had was in my pokeraccount (around 15k at that time).

black friday until gavarov
So again I chose the option staking. I randomly met bogan4life in some skypechat and we started chatting. He told me he manages a 180 stable so I quickly decided to join Gavarov poker, the stable of two 180 regs (chavarov and gavin555) I started out playing 180s and mtts up to 27s.

I ran really well and with leaving my social circle (all students) and not going out 3-4 times a week I put in huge volume. I had some nice mtts scores and got slowly moved up.
Now I play all low-midstakes MTTs and some majors on sunday.

After running quite hot for a while I now got stuck pretty deep in makeup.
I realize how much work to do I have as a player and how hot I ran on the top of my buyin range for a while. So even tho it's really frustrating hitting my first real downswing I won't complain or give up.
I'm trying to work a ton on my game atm, focus on things I haven't paid attention to and talk a lot more strategy with other players.

And even tho chavarov, gavin and especially bogan always been really good to me, I now want to start a new chapter and go on my own to see how far I can make it.
Luckily through a few binks I have a well sized liferoll in the bank and my future 20k roll already in my account. All I have to do now is clear my makeup.


Gavarov until now

My makeup is currently at 13k. I hope to have it cleared by the end of march. Additionally my lease here in Malta runs out in April and I'm kinda unsure what to do. Travelling for a while, moving to Ireland/UK and staying here are all decent options. Won't stress that decision now tho, clearing makeup is all that's in my mind at the moment.

Major tldr I'm sorry, so basically my goals are:

[ ] Clear Makeup
[ ] Study more
[ ] Staying in the top 10 of the yearly TLB, maybe going for 1st
[ ] Built my own roll to be rolled for midstakes


I will update this thread when I'm playing, which is at least 6 days a week.

Sorry for my bad spelling and the wall of text.

Thanks for taking the time to read it and gl everyone.

GL marc, its been a pleasure to stake/work with you over the last 5-6 months. We're very proud of your achievements since joining the stable and have been a great example to other guys in stable what the right mindset and work ethic can achieve. Im sure i speak for the guys when I thank you for the time you spent helping our other players improve their game as well.

The next Shaun Deeb imo, every now and again you get to work with someone in this game and you just know there going to be amazing and Rowniwn is one of those guys. Looking forward to you clearing your make up going it alone and having the long term success.

Guessing this thread is going to be epic when we do our 1 month tour of Euro/Mexioc (sun) GOTHEEEM
