Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

Hi there,

My name is Mrp00ks on twitch and I will be playing 6-max zoom on pokerstars.

The goal is to reach $1000 dollars with just 6-max zoom cashgames and I will start on NL5 with $100. when I have played 10k hands on a level (NL5) and it ends up in a profit, then I am allowed to move up no matter what the bankroll is.

Come and check me out on the stream and say hi!

Mrp00ks

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

Long time no see guys. I picked up on my challenge!

I started with $50 instead of $100 (because I am broke) and play on 888 poker. I play NL5 and snap poker (this is the zoom version of 888 poker).
I don't play on twitch anymore, I like poker better so will be focusing on that part alone.

I started my journey on 4-2-19, and now is my first report of how I am doing:
- hands played: 9040
- sessions: 40
- bb/100: 9,86
amount won: $44,55
+ $6 won (free ticket to 20.000 guarenteed tournament on 888 poker.)
+ $ 0,30 won (free ticket to 3.000 guarenteed tournament on 888 poker.)
Total: $50, 85

I am very happy with the result! I think its my best result in 9k hands ever on NL5. I reached a bankroll of $100 and moved up to NL10.

Stay tuned for my next update (I hope faster than my last one).
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Mrp00ks

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

In this post I will tell a little bit about myself and what my experience is with poker.

I was born at Aruba and moved to the Netherlands when I was just under 1 year old. My parents are Dutch and worked at Aruba for 3 years. I was raised in a small town and moved to the main capital of the Northern part when I was 19 years old and still live there now.

My first experience with poker was at school where my friends ask me to join them in a cashgame, I joined in and the first signs of a huge fish where showing. I remember one of my friends saying “why do you bet so much?! Hahaha because I was a big fish my friend. After that day I was sold. I started to play online, first on Everest where you could play free tournaments and win like $0,05 when you would win, I loved it so much. After a while I got more confident and tried pokerstars and started to make some deposits (and again and again). Ofcourse I would lose, but I still loved the game and bought my first poker books (Dan Harrington). Eventually I was a break-even player on the micro cashgame stakes 2NL and made some very small profits with MTT’s.

About 2 years ago I worked part-time and was playing 2 full days of poker (MTT’s) on the side. I played 50 tournaments a day on different sites with a buy-in of $5 on average and had my best year ever. I played around 5.000 tournaments and made $4.000 that year. It gave me a boost and signed up with BPC (best poker coaching) for the ZOOM 6-max cash game course (I didn’t go for MTT’s because I wanted a better daily structure, 5 min breaks every hour is killing). I learned a lot at BPC, I got a lot of coaching and am thankful for everything they thought me. I didn’t finished my course sadly enough, because I had to go work fulltime and didn’t had enough time to make it work.

I never ever played above the micro stakes and that’s the goal for me personally. Lets GO!

I hope I gave you guys a little bit of an idea of where I come from and what my experiences are with poker.

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

Next Update NL10

I moved up to NL10 from NL5 when I had $100 dollar. I found that this level is pretty much the same, didn't expect that. It went very well!
- hands played: 6.996
- sessions: 20
- bb/100: 11,01
amount won: $77,01
+ $16 won (free ticket to 20.000 guarenteed tournament on 888 poker.)
+ $ 1,20 won (free ticket to 3.000 guarenteed tournament on 888 poker.)
and some small cashes from free tournaments on 888 poker
Totalwin: $93,10

Bankrol $193,10

Again I am pleased! NL10 is my highest level I normally play and to do so well is above my own expectation. I also don't use a HUD because its not possible in snap 6-max cashgame and I actually like it. People need to put more effort in hand-reading without it.

One negative point that I had was a big tilt session of -$47,00. My biggest issue with Tilt is that I think to much about my bankroll and want to make up for my losses. It affects in play by calling to much OTR when I know Villain probably has a better hand and I should fold but just can't in that state of mind.
But they say when you have a big losing sessions it makes you think about yourself and your plays. It made me think and aware that bankroll is not that important... I mean if you have a bankroll of $150 or $270 it shouldn't matter what you do on the poker table right?

I will post my graph in about 2 days.

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

update NL10

It was a rough week for me. I started very well on the challenge but the heavy-storm has hit me and I started playing bad. I called way to much all-in and with a lose range. and maybe they started to notice I was playing pretty aggressive. But enough of the excuses here are the stats:
hands played: 5609
sessions: 13
bb/100 -2,81
Bankroll: $123,12

So for next week my goal is to fold more mediocre hands OTR and try to focus on the small pots.

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

Update

I am going up and down on 888poker lately. My highest bankroll was $207 but I dropped to $133 and my attempt on NL10 has failed for me personally. I started to miss the HUD ability so I fired up pokerstars again and still had $1,47 on my account and jumped in on NL2 with it and it now stands on $9,50.

I will be playing on both site's from now on. On pokerstars I will be playing NL2 and on 888 I will be dropping down to NL5 again. The target will be trying to get back to the $200 dollar bankroll!

Re: Bankroll challenge from 1$00 to $1000!!

Update

allright! my bankroll from stars went from $1,47 to $50,36 (also included starcoins and promotions), my bankroll on 888 is $127 so the total is now $177. I really like stars again and missed my hud very much. I am going to play NL5 on stars as well now. I will be playing only 1 table because I picked up twitch again.

I am going to do my best on NL5 and I will let you guys know how it went!

I will post a graph of NL2 6-max zoom on stars up till this point.
