  • My new 2013 challenge


    Okay so I had a bad january...big deal!!

    I'm going to restart my own challenge on 31st jan when i get paid from work (in a bout 5 hours)

    Here is my plan

    Manage my bankroll strictly and very conservatively - ALWAYS having 100 buy ins for whatever im doing (even sitting at cash tables). This is my big weakness and why i keep going bust.

    Limit my daily loss to 10bi per day so max i can lose is 10% of my roll. Tilt is another issue for me... sometimes I look back and think I ran bad but i see i missed out on things like position (shoving short with KQ 9 handed utg isnt a good move 12bb deep... button would be fine lol)

    My end of year targets are as follows:

    $100 deposit into $5000

    5000 TLB points (previous best 4500 in 2011 and i've kind of only played poker in mini "blasts" since then)

    25000VPP (not quite monthly gold star but should be hitting it regularly by the end of the year)

    So... do i think i can do it in 11 months? I decided to rate them by difficulty...

    $100 into $5000 - 8/10
    5000 TLB - 7/10
    25000VPP - 5/10

    but the bankroll management stuff... thats a 10/10!!

    Okay so here it goes... wish me luck and all the best to you with your goals too!

      100 deposit and there is chance in the MTT low buy-in to win $15.00 a day with the 335 days left of the year, which makes you a 5000 bankroll
