Red face To win at poker, you have to be very good at losing.

Hi all,

Welcome to my PG&C thread.

About me:

26 year old Irish living in London. Been playing for about 3.5 years, seriously and casually, on and off, cash and MTT. Started with $1 SnGs on 888, binked an MTT on there for a few hundred and moved to Stars. Had a few good scores on there throwing BRM to the wind; a few final tables of Big 11 and a few smaller wins here and there.

The last year and a half I have very much become a rec, playing a bit of zoom in the evenings and the occasional MTT, as well as more lol live poker. Have withdrawn chunks of my BR and kinda just been depositing here and there for the last few months, spunking it off at 50nl, and depositing again. That's where the challenge comes in..

Challenge:

Bankroll - $150 to start and 15BI BRM for moving up / down
Game - 10NLz
Volume - 30k - 50k hands per month

Got a full time job to support my food and rent habit, so volume will be a bit pitiful. Reckon I can average 1000/day easily enough though, so 30k per month is my minimum, with 50k being my target. Might be off on that, but we'll see.

I have never really stuck to any strict BRM, so that's basically what I'm going for with this thread. No more deposits is the goal. Not aiming for monetary results, just wanna beat the game.

I am accountable for the life of this thread, so I'll try and update daily with graphs and HHs.

First session tonight, gonna time it and see how long 1000 hands takes. Lettuce ****ing go.

Re: To win at poker, you have to be very good at losing.

First 1000 hands in the bag. Not really the result I was looking for, but I'll take it after being down 2 BIs. I played these 1000 on 2 Zoom tables only, took f'n ages so either going to up the tables to 3 or lower the daily hands to 700/800, and make it up at the weekend.



Session started off pretty bad, down 2 BIs in 100 hands or so. This was due to AK vs AA all in pre, and a few failed 3bets. Managed to grind it back over the next while, got it in pre w AKs vs 33 to lose a stack around the 800 hand mark. Obviously would like to have ended the first day with a winning session, but I did get some of the PG&C run good nonetheless..

    Going for the max. Thoughts on PSB on river? Trying to make it look like I'm pushing off a chop, or that was my thoughts in game anyway.
