Thumbs up Poker Challenge: From $3,900 to $100,000 on Stars

Hi all,

I have been a long time reader on this forum. I am from London, UK. My main game is PLO. I have decided to make this post due to:

A) I love the challenge

B) I have major tilt issues which causes we to play outside my bankroll. This challenge will help me stay within my limits. I am going to make sure of that.

I was going to deposit $5k on Stars and start the challenge from there. However, I deposited $130 one night to mess around with. I played a bit of $0.25/$0.50 and went on a little winning run. I ended up playing big as usual and my hands stood up for the most part. I was going to name this challenge 'From $130 to 100k' but that is not really fair. I got my money in good when playing big a couple of times and I was 75% and 70% favourite. If I lost either of those I would have lost my deposit.

Anyway, I have spun my account up (with a mix of grinding too) to $3,900. I only deposited a week ago. I am currently grinding $0.50/$1 and this is where I will stay. If my bankroll drops to $1k, I will move down. If I grind at this level to $8k, I will move up to $1/$2.

Those who know me say that I am a talented poker player. My issue has always been playing far to big. I find I can concentrate to a very high level when playing big due to fear. I cleaned up in Vegas at the Aria when playing $25/$50 PLO and when I go bust at the higher level, I almost always get it in good.

This thread will prove to myself if I have the game to beat the game properly or not.

Thanks and good luck to you all.

Thanks mate. I restricted my account for now so that I can't play bigger than $0.50/$1.

I don't use Pokertracker either but might get it to experiment with at these smaller stakes to try and get used to it and will post hands on here.

Thanks a lot!

I have traditionally been a live player but have also played quite a bit online.

However, can anyone let me know which they prefer between Holdem Manager and Pokertracker. I am not up to date with this.

I want to start posting hands here and my stats so people can see how this comes along.
