  • Time Vault 2013 - The Challenge - Turning $50 into $1,000

    Hello everyone, my presentation can be viewed through this link.

    This year my main Challenge will be turning $50 into $1,000 playing poker tournaments with start date scheduled before February 1, 2013.

    Interested?

    I'll explain then what is this challenge!

    - BR initial $51,54 and 29,44 FPP/VPPs

    - BronzeStar.

    - The challenge ends when it reaches $1000+.

    What will I play?

    - I'll start with: SNG from 18/45/90 up to $2 and MTTs (including satellites & freerolls) up to $3.

    Bankroll Management?

    - The idea is to play with 50 buy-ins and descend/ascend barely reaches the 50 buy-ins of the previous/next.

    - Then when the bank grow and is at about $200/$250 I'll add MTTs/SNGs up to $6 to my work plan, and later when i get to the $500+ I want to focus exclusively on MTTs up to $22 until the end of my goal.

    - I'll post some hands i have doubts or find interesting.

    - I will do this challenge in multi-table tournaments, because it is a format that I want to learn and think it's more interesting for who is folowing.

    This is inspired by the current challenge of the professional André ''acoimbra'' Coimbra on PS to turn $100 into $100K this year 2013 (good luck to him)!


    Here I put a daily update, with the balance of the day and the daily evolution of the BR.

    I appreciate all your criticisms and/or suggestions.

    Regards, John "uaredead xD''

    Good luck! Just a question here, are you comfortable starting out playing the $2 SnG's with a bankroll of $50, only 25 buy ins? Very aggressive/risky. Keep us updated.

      Hey mate, i will be playing SNGs up to $2 untill i reach $300+, BUT i start with the 45/90 $0,50, and a few shots at the $1 90 man / $1,50 45 man untill i reach $150+ and play with 100+ buyins with low risk. The goal is to play $2,50 180s man only when i have more then $500 (in terms of SNGs). Ty for the support
