The first 100k is the hardest.

Hi,
My name is George, I'm 21 from England. I'm currently a student in my final year of a Business studies with Marketing degree from Bristol.

The aim of this thread is to motivate me whilst I look to turn pro at the end of my degree.

Lifetime Graph

Guess where I started to play HU?



I currently play nl50-400 HU, and will be looking to take 600nl shots in the near future.

gl everyone.

Re: The first 100k is the hardest.

Time for the first update.

Looks like this blog has been bad luck for me as you can see from the graph since wednesday.



Feel like I played ****ing terrible at times, and I'm making a vow to never 4 table until I have prepared myself to do it. Only playing 2 tables at the most atm, and will play a 3rd when I feel focused and see how it goes.

Biggest Winning Hand.


    Poker Stars, $1/$2 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 2 Players

      Both very standard hands, and I just wanted to post this hand to shame myself.


        Bodog, $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 2 Players
        Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #10930712

        BB: $107.03 (107 bb)

        Preflop:
        SB raises to $2, BB raises to $6, SB calls $4

        Flop: ($12) 3 3 6 (2 players)
        BB checks, SB bets $8, BB calls $8

        Turn: ($28) T (2 players)
        BB checks, SB bets $18, BB raises to $36, SB calls $18

        River: ($100) 7 (2 players)
        BB bets $57.03 and is all-in, SB calls $53 and is all-in

        Results: $206 pot ($1 rake)
        Final Board: 3 3 6 T 7
        SB showed Q 6 and lost (-$103 net)
        BB showed T 3 and won $205 ($102 net)

        So my main goals for the next few weeks are to be way more focused when I'm playing, and I am going to turn the tv and skype off when grinding.

        gl all.

        You just started playing heads up and noticed that suits you better than 6max, no coach or so? Is it that it suits you better or that the players are worse?

        Oh not because OP isn't good enough but because he will crush the **** out of it, cheer up, regain some $ and be able to go back to 100nl feeling good about himself.
