  • $5 mini challenge

    Challenge is to start with $5 playing .02/.04 flhe 6max then move to .10 sngs once I reach $10 and then move up to .25c sngs once I reach $20-25. Then once I reach $40-50 move up to .50c sngs until I reach $80-$100

    Finished first part in flhe and have started .10c sngs.

    $8-10 .10c sng/mtt
    $20-25 .25c sng/mtt
    $40-50 .50c sng/mtt
    $80-100 1.50 sng/mtt

    freerolls and fpp tournaments included at all levels of bankroll

    not sure about rules for rebuy sattys yet

    I can play fixed limit
    .02/.04 6max anytime
    .05/.10 6max $35-70
    .10/.20 6max $65-100

    Havent planned for $100 and up yet
    End Goal Is $500

    My main focus in this is sngs/mtts.

    Only switching to cash if I think I dont have enough time to play a full session of sng/mtts or if my internet is unstable.

          Made a final table but I think I called to wide vs a tightish type player in .10c I think I could have folded here vs this opponent since the pay in the top three would have made a big difference in my bankroll.

          Just busted another FT let myself get to short

              Just played a 20fpp tournament and cashed $2 played to tight when blinds were high missed some spots to shove to build stack while i still had fold equity.

              Played the weekly chromestar 5k freeroll cashed around ,55c in that.. There was a hand I posted in the analysis section that pretty much ended my tournament life! feel free to have a look at that.

              So still in the .10c part of challenge but my bankroll is growing little by little... right now its currently at $14.92..

              Once I make a few more final tables in the .10c sngs and well be moving on up

              Playing a PSO Homegame 7-2 nl single draw .11c buy in... Kind of lost in this one im just gunna try to play top starting hands, and hope for another small boost to the bankroll.

                            Yesterday was pretty bad I didnt play as much as I wanted to and I didnt do good in cash or sngs.

                            I played maybe an hour before I went to bed at .02/.04 fl 6max and went down about 2.33. I think I was playing to many tables.

                            I played sngs also but not many played some freerolls also but did not cash in anything.

                            So overall a losing day.

                            Starting today with around $11 bankroll.

                              Today was a good day

                              I played a good amount of .02/.04 flhe 6max and a small amount of sngs/mtts.

                              I finally final tabled another .10c sng got 2nd place

                              I made a huge mistake heads up at the final table because I was to busy looking at this chart for push fold.
                              Instead of paying attention to the players tendacies I was trying to follow this chart even tho it was an obviouse fold preflop.
                              So I made a stupid mistake and shoved over his huge raise where he had ak in a similar spot earlier 3 handed..
                              Also I was looking at the shove part but not calling part.
                              I was mainly using it as a guideline but for that one quick moment I had some kind of brain fart lol...
                              Who knows how it would have ended if I had didnt do that..
                              Our stacks were pretty close and both very shallow compared to blinds. When I went all in he was ahead but it was like 30/70 or something like that.

                              Cashed in a .10c mtt and 20fpp mtt also.

                              Got stake in a $1.50 90man ko which went very bad.
                              I already knew player 5 was really bad and had a good read vs him and it looked like a perfect spot to pick up easy money guess I was wrong....

                              Playing the 100k freeroll right now and this just happened lol itm tho still got a little bit of chips to work with. Just ended now cashed .44c

                              But overall I was in profit today for sngs/mtts.

                              In .02/.04 flhe 6max I played about six different sessions of games averaging about 8-12 tables in 1hour time periods.

                              Biggest losing session was the shortest one I where was down $1.36 in 18 minutes lol.

                              Biggest winning sessions was the longest one where I was up $3.60 after 87 minutes of 12tabling.

                              Others sessions were close to above and under $1

                              I wanted to go longer because I was running very good overall but I felt burned out since Ive been playing and studying/railing for over 9 hours today.

                              hehehe got a nice hand today also in the cash games

                              Another cool thing that happened today was I got to rail the best heads up turbo player I know during the end of his daily grind in $30s and $60s and the $22 heads up mtt turbo where he got 9th or something like that.

                              Hes probably one of the best $30 heads up regs right now and alot of other people think so also.

                              He shipped me like 10% of his winnings in the $22 heads up mtt just for railing even tho he barely doubled his buy in which was really nice of him. A nice little boost to the bankroll.

                              But yea that was cool and I learned some stuff from watching and listening.

                              So now at the end of today my bankroll is at $23.18 and I can play .25c sngmtts/mtts now.
