Diamond $290 to $3000 in 4 months, playing Fifty50 mainly

Poker bankroll: $290
Long term Goal: $3000 at the end of July

My long term goal is to make $3000 at the end of July and fly to Philippines to play live poker with my friend for a month.

In April, I will mainly play $3.50 to $7 fifty50 turbo on stars. I will try to play at least 700 tourneys with no more than 6 tables at a time.

There are some results in March:





About me:
Hi guys, I'm Asian kid who dropped out of college to play poker for living.
I went to Bristol, UK to study IT in 2014 and got hook the poker since then.In 2016, I decide to quit school and play poker full time.
I start building bankroll with $40 and playing $0.25 sit'n'go 90 man and also work part time for KFC to pay life expenses. After 2 months I won a $1 tourney and boost bankroll to $350, then I decided to deposit another $150 and grind $4 sit n go 180 man. I quickly ran hot and double the roll to more than $1000 in a month. In April 2016, I went to Coventry to play student poker event and chopped the 30-ish pounds side event for about 1000 pounds. I collected all the money to play cash 1/1 live in Bristol and got up to more than 4000 pounds once then drop back to 2000 pounds. My visa ends in July, I flew home, Vietnam and traveled with my girlfriend for a month. After all, my life roll is $1000 after paying for travel fees and poker study related things ( it cost a lot) and I'm currently playing online poker for living in my mom's house.

Re: $290 to $3000 in 4 months, playing Fifty50 mainly

Day #1: 56 games, Result: +$0.35, Chips Ev: 3.26bb/100

Played 3 session.
Session #1: 351 hands, 1h:12m
Session #2: 320 hands, 1h:08m
Session #3: 942 hands, 3h:26m

Crazy swing day, downed to -$40 at 1 point but some good games at the end of the session save the day. Got really unlucky, ran into top range in very first few hands of 100% range shoving pot. People are so fishy in calling range, most of them calling Chipev range instead of ICM range. I also fold a bit too much but not too many serious mistakes. There are some interested pots.

      Net winning: $417 + $18 - $290 = $145

      Check point for April:
      Spoiler:


      Some graphs and tables:




      Overall I'm so happy with 11 days so far. I put into hours of playing and reviewing. However, there was a point when I was not reviewing anything because I have to play on my laptop and can't check my play without HM2. Today, day #12, after 12 hours of sleeping to recharge my life battery, I just check some of my plays and find out I make a lot of mistakes. These mistakes are not too terrible but still bad. I'm currently playing 8 tables with 100% of my skills on it, so I will keep at this rate. My next goal is fix all my medium mistakes and increase the number of tables to 10, however this is not the most important things to do. Making no mistake is on the first place. Sorry for bad English.
