  • Challenge: 5 years to achieve SNE

    Introduction myself:

    Hy, my nickname here at Pokerstars is GroundBurst, and Im from Brazil.
    Sorry if you find many english mistakes. Im not good at all to write in this language.


    The BIG Challenge: "It´s a Long Way to The Top (If You Wanna Rock´n´Roll)" : Achieve SNE in 5 years (end of 2018)

    I know its looks stupid, 5 years, its too long, etc...
    But I want a slow peace in this challenge, primarly because Im a fish, a tilted fish.
    Have so many leaks in my game, but, truly?, I tilt too easy.
    My biggest flaw is this...HyperTilting.
    I pretend to work hard in this issue first place, while I study the game with discipline.
    Its a really big commitment, and requires a lot of planning, hard work, discipline, and true, some talent. But I know that I dont have it, so I will work double hard in it.
    Ill set up the official initial day at 01/08/2013, just because its looks cool, the second semester beginning.
    As 01/08/2013 is approaching, the offical beginning of this challege, I've been outlining my for the first year of this challenge. So, I created some sub-challenges wherein I think it´s necessary to focus.
    I´m with an open mind approach, so if it will be necessary to change, or ad, new sub-challenges, certainly I will.


    Update: 01/08/2013

    Here the inital list:

    Sub-Challenge #1: "Vanishing my Worst Half": Lose 88 pounds in 2 years. Get fit, get health. (In Progress).
    Sub-Challenge #2: "Highway to Hell": 1000 Frerolls this year. Learn to control my tilting tendencies. (In Progress).
    Sub-Challenge #3: "Study Hard is Right": Study at least 2 hours per day. (In Progress).
    Sub-Challenge #4: "Search and Destroy" : Find my recurrent mistakes, and fix them. (In Progress).
    Sub-Challenge #5: "With Arms Wide Open" : Grind the Open League to achieve the Premier League. (In Progress).
    Sub-Challenge #6: "Now Gimme Money": Bankroll Builder: Goal $10 to $1000. (In Progress).

      Your english is fine but hiper is hyperumbup: Challenges can be really good for your game and they really help keep me motivated and help me enjoy the game more. When it comes to tilting i do occasionally tilt and when i do i find it better just not to play and just rail some friends instead and watch them get sucked out on

          Nice challenge, good luck

          But, if you want to achieve it, may I suggest that you break it down to year, month and even weeks.
          How will you achieve it?
          What will you play?
          How many hours a week?
          Right now, your challenge is very very vague and when they are vague, they are doomed to fail

          Here are a few links to help and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me.

              These are some great tips Sandtrap, I'll make sure to study them as well. It's great that experienced, solid players such as yourself welcome new members and offer assistance. And GroundBurst, maybe we can make a Brazilian Team Challenge, as I am Brazilian as well, how about that for a start? Good luck! Boa sorte!

                              About the Sub-Challenge #1: "Vanishing my worst half"



                              My intent with this sub-challenge is to motivate me to get fit, to get health.

                              To work at an state of peak performance you need your body in the best shape possible. SNE plays hours and hours in a condition of strees and sedentary state.

                              It´s pretty obvious that you wont make it, if you are overweight, as I am, and not resting enough, like I usually do.

                              My goal is to lose 88 pounds within 2 years.
                              To achive this I plan to:

                              1) Eat better : calculate my caloric needs, and make a diet plan according with these needs.

                              2) Gym: Enroll and go 3 times a week at least.

                              3) Sleep: rest its important too. Get my full 8 hours every day.

                              4) Track: Weekly and Montly to dont get sloppy and quit. Post here my weight updates.

                              5) Monthly Goal: Lose 3,7 pounds/month

                              6) Weekly Goal: Lose 0,92 pounds/week.

                              I think that it will be REALLY hard since I THINK like a fat guy.

                              The mental side will be cruel , but if I wanna make changes, it will not come easily.
