From NL5 to 10k bankroll

Hi everyone,

About me:
I'm from Perú, i'm 25 years old i have a bachellor's degree in business with finance and marketing mentions. currently ceo & founder of an startup in the developing stage being incubated by the #1 university of Peru, i also do some really small advising work to small business (in other countries this sounds like a lot of money but here it doesn't)

A lil more, i have a 4years stable relationship ill hope i will get marry soon, we have 3 dogs (pug, english bulldog, and a mix) and a cat(mix).

Old poker grind story:
If you can see my 2+2 acc is kind of old and with almost no post, thats because i spended all my poker-life playing pre-blackfriday and posting on pokerstrategy.com, i was living from poker before i quit after blackfriday since i couldn't beat the game anymore, i went from 4bb/100 over 400k hands in NL50 on fulltilt to be a breakeven rb-pro, well all the american recreational were gone, and everything became tough and i tilted way too much, so i decided to stop playing and just finish college.

Fast forward to today, i keep in touch with some poker friends, right now my startup is in a place that i have a lot of free time, so one told me about BPC CFP program, and that was like a good idea to start playing again and to beat my awful mental game.

So here i'm, i played almost all this month before joining the micro program yesterday, so right now the goal is to learn everything and start from the really nano-limits.

my rig
ASUS G551JW core i7 16gbram
really good gaming notebook, is good enough to play poker, just lacking an SSD, i will upgrade it when ill get to NL50.
1 24" monitor.
gaming asus rog mouse
steelpad qck pad
sennheiser hd558

software i will be using while playing
holdem manager like everybody
spotify
Stack and tile, right now i believe is the best tool to multilobby, i can play on every network and have all the tables tiled, pop up when action, and use same hotkeys on every lobby.

The challenge

10k EUR in 4 months or less.

Starting stake:NL5/10 since i have to make adjustments in my game, ill play some hands on NL5 before moving back to NL10

Maybe ill twitch or do a yt channel ? idk

lol, sure clearly created for 1 reason document my way up from micros and get a 10k bankroll/profit in 4 months or less, and also because pokerstrategy spanish forum that i used to post around is kind of dead, so the logical step was to migrate to 2+2.

So, no forum rule broken, and my account is 5 years older than yours, so i don't see it was created for 1 reason.

For the rest, thanks guys

Re: From NL5 to 10k bankroll

So first 5k hands:
-10 buyins

I hate microgaming, lost 6 buyins in less than 1k hands, cbet, x/f turn and if i hit big, they hit better besides that the software sucks, so i decided to withdraw my remaining funds from MPN and keep playing on stars/party, ill give ftp a try tomorrow.

I rate my mental game as a 7/10 i only played 1 session a little tired, didnt tilt at all, had to stop 1 sessión because of stoploss

Biggest pots lost ----------------
Some MPN hands:
Turn, push, o x/push same results i was never folding overpair on a 3bet pot vs vpip 50/10 utg 50/40 bu

            Re: From NL5 to 10k bankroll

            First 10k hands played.
            Results: - 150 $

            There are peculiar lines that i didnt felt comfortable playing but hey let's see how its going, on these 10k hands i been playing on average on 3-5 rooms at the same time.

            This has been -EV becouse it was hard to get use to this many softwares, also in microstakes It is not necessary to multilobby but i been doing this in order to be ready when i start climbing stakes, i rather lose money right now getting the setup right in NL10 than later on NL50 and loose $50 pots on a missclick or setting the right table size, etc.

            Re: From NL5 to 10k bankroll

            You say you're starting at NL5 to make some adjustments in your game etc but surely multi siting and as a result probably playing a lot of tables are going to make those adjustments happen very slowly and you'll still likely be making a lot of mistakes without realising (auto piloting).

            Maybe just two table 5/10nl zoom on stars and see how you do, start posting hands etc

            Seems like a much better approach than multi siting the micros when you've just got back into poker.

            Re: From NL5 to 10k bankroll

            Thanks for passing by Labax,

            I started at NL10 at first, the last 2k where on NL5, yep i have been making mistakes by multilobbing and having to be reading charts and stuff , but like i said i wanna get used to that and been paying the price for that. i think by now i kind of got it, but yeah i think i could play 6 normal tables for now untill i know the charts by heart, lets see what my next DB review says.

            Re: From NL5 to 10k bankroll

            Yeah that's not a bad approach. When I used to grind cash my method was to play and small amount of tables and when I started feeling comfortable I'd add another and see how that went rather than just chucking myself in the deep end and hoping I'd eventually adjust.

            Best of luck!

            Poker related i have only played 3k hands, right now NL5 is about 10k hands winings 11bb/100 after my next DB review i think ill go back to NL10.
