Restarting from 20NL challenge!

I'm a midstakes grinder who's currently doing a challenge and hope to do something I've never done before.

History about myself:
I've been playing for a long long, long long time. I started with a free $50 and played until that bankroll went to $2. From there I won some tournaments and continued playing sit and go's until I managed a $2k bankroll. I then moved over to 100NL Full Ring and moved up from there. I managed to beat 200NL FR and thought it was about time to move to SH and started at 100NL. It was tough. I played millions of hands and in 2012 I did something that was pretty crazy. I played 1.1million hands at 100NL SH Zoom and somehow managed to run 220bi below EV!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2013 was my turning point and I managed to turn myself from a 2.5bb winner and become a bigger winning player! How did I do this? You will find out!

This is a start of a blog as I challenge myself to play 20NL and stakes I've never played before.

Challenge is to start at 600 and build it up.

Bankroll management I will use is as follows:

30BI at NL20-NL50
30BI at NL100
40BI at NL200
50BI at NL400+

There will be no deposit or transfers allowed. If it means I have to move down to NL4, I will! I will be updating from time to time here in my progress. Let the SPEW begin!

Re: Restarting from 20NL challenge!

Volume might be an issue since I'm doing a lot of coaching but I will try to get some in!

I'll also use this challenge to update things so you guys know what has been going on!

I just got back from a 2 week vacation in which we took a 1 week cruise into the Caribbean.



We travelled to 4 islands and fell in love with Sint Maarten.

I'm in the process of purchasing a 2br Penthouse down there!

This is where my new grinding setup will be!



It's a 100sqM terrace!



If anyone wants to visit you can give me a shout! I'll update everyone once it's finalized!!!! So excited.

Re: Restarting from 20NL challenge!

I'm going to try to get 35-50k hands in a month but it's probably an unrealistic goal considering how much work I do away from grinding.



Here are a few hands against one my students. He'll be reading this and laughing.

I think I managed to overbet about 20 times in the first 600 hands I've played at 20nl. This might just be due to them not having reads on me.

Did I mention that there will be some major spewing going on?

BR at 660 and I will try to make a serious effort into grinding these stakes which I often spew too much.

If anyone wants to ask questions, feel free to add me.

Very interesting, I will be following. It is very inspiring to see the daily ups and downs of a true grinder.
