The 50k$ Challenge

Hello boys and girls

My name is Torsten, 35 year old player from germany and this is my first PGC thread which i want to welcome everybody to. Some of you might know me from the ZOOM games on stars or from twitch already. It feels like i have played the low-midstakes games since forever without any structure or goals so i thought this might be a good time to start a PGC.

My motivation for this PGC is my bad self discipline when it comes to bankrollmanagement. Honestly it is the worst, i start shotting higher stakes with 10 buyins or less sometimes and busting my roll again and again. This needs to be changed and rules have to be made! Here i want to document my progress up to 50k$ profits this year and i hope things are going well. For the start i will begin with nl50 on stars and need to have at least 50 buyins for the next higher stakes before moving up. LEGGO!

To keep it a little more colourful in here i will post some nice tracks which i was digging over the past years as a DJ, i hope you will enjoy!

GL Jektiss, nice twitch stream btw!

Why did you decide to start on stars? I feel like there are much better options

Thank you guys!

good luck but I think a volume goal is better for you instead of profits

Re: jektiss: The 50k$ Challenge

What was the highest you've played/most degen stuff you've made with your roll?

Do you rely on poker for living or do you have another job?

at the moment i don't have an income other than poker so it is not easy life but i am looking forward to find a part time job in online marketing.

Most degen stuff i did was 6 years ago maybe when a horse shipped big and i got my share on stars which i could not withdraw before playing some of this money. So i went on PLO5k and lost 80k in 4 days, never felt so bad in my life.

We got a thread going, boys! Haha! Vaaaamooo

Btw, from what I played vs you, you're a good reg, haven't marked you as any label so far so these guys end up being the best regs from my experience. Gl, bro! You can make it!

Do you study with solvers?

Hehe, same for you too! Most regs i haven't marked or recognized are doing pretty fine i guess. BTW last degen story was yesterday night. I was pretty drunk because my mum's 60th birthday and i went live to have some fun on twitch later. Played some NL500 with 3 buyins bankroll on RIO and i lost 2 of them. After waking up today and realizing that this type of stuff needs to end i started this thread.

@rapidesh: Forgot to answer your question about solver work. I haven't used solvers seriously yet but the plan is to buy a PIO license after my first 10k$ checkmark. I just got my fake GTO knowledge from videos.
