$50-$5000 6max zoom

Right, 2nd time round! Kind of punted off my roll drunk and yolo`d it on wcoop. Managed to get from $20 - $680 in 2 weeks in my last challenge:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/17...lenge-1625013/

Now I have banned myself off of everything on stars but cash games I should be ok to carry this one out

Last time I did this my BRM was a little conservative. This time I`m going to be more aggressive.. 20 -30 buy ins and take shots when i have 3-5 buy ins for the next stake!

As soon as I reach 50nl I will be looking for a good coach to help me in spots.. Looking to get this challenge done for end of december if not then the end of January . If all goes well I`m looking at taking 6 months off work next year and trying to grind SN see how it goes.

Starting bankroll:



Goal: $5,000

Will post updates every couple of days if not daily.

Thanks

Re: $50-$5000 6max zoom

Day 1:







Played all last night from like 10pm - now 7pm. Played mostly 3 tables.. Got up to $75 then moved up to 5nl. Crushed there then took a shot at 10nl and managed to get up to 4 stacks then lost a 200bb all in otr with a J high flush to a K high flush bvb.

Hopefully be a 10nl reg again by tomorrow evening (lol)

Plan is to take 3 shots at 25nl when I reach $375

Gl will rail, have stars confirmed SN is a thing for 2017, I was under the impression it was turning into a monthly thing.

    Good luck man! Was very impressed of your results in last challenge, believe me I've tried spewing away weeks of work in just a couple of minutes due to drinking or tilting

    I have a question! Do you use stats like VPiP and PFR while you play zoom, or don't you even have it turned on the zoom tables?
    Also: What is your 3 major tips to beating the 5nl games
