Deposit Bonus to 100k in 6 Months, Rolo Spins to Win?

Sup my fellow Dan Bilzerian fanboys!

Iím Rolodecks, and hereís a bit about me, my poker challenge, and my Twitch stream. I am an indigenous Canadian eh and have been a professional poker player off and on since the first poker boom. I took breaks to be a DJ, go to school at UBC in Vancouver, and to be a very super serious Path of Exile gamer, but I always end up returning to poker.

My favourite games are Live NL cash games in either Vancouver or Vegas, and SNGís online(180mans, 9mans, 6mans, KOís, DoNís, Hypers, if itís in the SNG lobby Iíll beastmode it). I often lurk the forums, but have been to 2+2 parties in Vegas and met members in person.

THE CHALLENGE
I am about to stream a challenge where I learn and play Spins. The challenge will be to climb from deposit bonus to 100k in profit within 6 months. Iíll be including rakeback, leaderboards, rakeraces, rakechases, and bonuses in my profits, so thereís a small chance this turns into a rakeback pro challenge lol. Iíll be starting at the $3ís at GGPoker, and plan on moving up swiftly through the 5ís, 10ís, 20ís, 50ís.
For studying Iíll have a coach, GTO software/charts, Push-Fold software, video/chart packs, and Iíll also be gleaning information from other streams/videos(slayerv1fan, BBZ, Team651, OP Poker, Elliot Roe, etc.). I have the utmost confidence that I will back up the truck. I got 99 problems but profit ainít one, buuuuuut if I do end up giving up, Iíll limp back to the SNG lobby with my tail between my legs and finish the challenge there instead. I donít need much more motivation, but for a little kick in the ass, if I fail the challenge Iíll be owing one of my best buddies a trip to Vegas once the pandemic recedes.
Iíll be streaming the challenge on my Twitch channel, if anyone would like to see the studying and gameplay: https://www.twitch.tv/rolodecks

Iíll make sure to post here several times per week with bankroll updates and any other shenanigans I have to share.

I was a $5/$10 Spin grinder on GG poker had really good Chip EV but the variance is way too high on GG poker, that and you mainly start with 10bb stack which is way more variance / preflop shoving.

You're better off grinding spins on Pokerstars or Party Poker. You started with 25bb+

I'm mostly studying for the 2x and 3x multipliers, starting with 10bb and 20bb. The rake is lower at the $3-5 buy-ins, and then 1-2% higher at most at the $20-50 buy-ins. Considering that the Flash/Ultra/Nitro variants are beatable with 15bb, and that the higher multipliers start with more bb's, I think I should be fine. I ate some huge variance yesterday and post-leaderboard still came out fairly far ahead, so it'll look gooooood on brighter days! I eat variance for my recess time snack!

Haha, probably not. Just feels like it sometimes. I thought I had bullet proof tilt control, but spins are sure testing that belief!

Up another 40-50ish buy-ins yesterday post rakeback/leaderboard. For rakeback at GG they give out these spin the wheel prizes, the first few I got mins or near-mins, but last night I got a max. Very nice!!!! About to go in again for another set. It'll just take a decent day and I'll be able to move up tomorrow!

Ditch spins and play cash games in my opinion. Good luck though.

Re: Deposit Bonus to 100k in 6 Months, Rolo Spins to Win?

TLDR:
Deposited $600.
After 3 days of play, bankroll at $1111.
Pics of marine life.


Here's some pics to update with! I have no problem showing these screens on stream, as well, for any confirmation and such

Here's the one deposit, on December 27th for $600, to get the match bonus of 100%:


I just started playing 3 days ago, and here's after 3 days of play. $916.61 with $100 of Spin tickets from Leaderboards, and another $95 of Spin tickets to be deposited at some point today($75 from the $3 LB, $20 from the $5 LB), for a total of $1111.61 before any Rakeraces and such.


Here's some highlights from GG's PokerCraft page(basically a highlight reel of your recent play and achievements and such):


This was a sick max roll on their spin the wheel. You get one of these spins as your form of rakeback, each time you move up on their rewards program.


Levelled up to Gold Crab! Now receiving equiv of 28% rakeback. This will be Bronze Octopus tomorrow, which is equiv of 30% rakeback. Should take about a week to get up to the 40% level, and then a few weeks after that to reach their highest tier which is named Black Shark (60%). This is all IF I can keep moving up as expected!


Binking first on the $3 Spins leaderboard 2 days ago!


Biggest multiplier I've hit so far. Got second place

I will only get to play a couple of hours today, but I'm able to fully move up to the $5's now. I can cherry pick a few nice leaderboard spots in the $3's, $5's, and if I'm ballsy enough the $10's. I'm trying to keep 200 buy-ins of my main stake at any given time, but I'm going to be cherry picking leaderboards both 1 stake below and 1 stake above.

But first, some studying!
GL in your games

Good job man ! I played these and they are high variance so I'm happy to see you doing well, I think the trick is to get high in the leaderboards if you are going to play seeing as the top spots pay out the most
