      Good luck with your challange,

      I have a question? Your last long term objective says you will never cash out?

      Why is that, if the idea is to get to high stakes and win lots do you not wish to spend some?

        Thanks Grade B and obviously the cash out rule doesn't apply to the big moneyzzz let's say that i won't cash out untill 4k, and even then i won't cash out all my money just small amounts to sustain myself. But let's not talk about big numbers yet, i'll see where i am after december.

            To build your bankroll from 0 to around $2000 in two months? (Assuming beating 50NL means you start playing 100NL with 20 stacks)

            That's an incredibly ambitious and likely unrealistic goal - while there might be a lot of fish at 2NL, they start thinning about by 10NL and certainly 25NL although some do still exist at those levels of course.

            I would focus on beating one level at a time and more importantly, developing your skills as a poker player. Don't be too obsessed by time-oriented goals, particularly when you are just starting.

              Not so incredibly, ofcourse with my poker skill levels will be hard to do 2k in 2 months but not impossible because all depends on december PSO leaderboard. I'm really confident in my skills on the league. We shall see what gods have prepared for me. And even if i take a bad place let's say top 20 and i win only 50$ is not so impossible to make 2k even at NL 2. Check this graph at NL2 hands played in 30 days

                Hi,

                Good luck with the challenge. I like the 2nl graph. How have you achieved this in 30 days. Do you play zoom and multitable? If so, how many tables do you play at once.

                Cheers,

                Pullin

                  Hi Pullin, and thanks!
                  About the graph....well that's not mine, but my rooms mate graph. I put the graph to show that you can make some moneyz at NL2. He is a NL100-200 reg, that was mostly a personal challenge.

                      It looks like you've a good mentor but I also think your goals are a bit ambitious. You may have the skill-set but you have no control over the cards. The Open Skill League is a minefield of bad players and avoiding bad beats is a skill in itself.

                      Stars is a pretty poor site to build from freerolls - the numbers are just too large and the prizes just too low. If you want a quicker way to get rolled, deposit $25 and play the Privilege Freerolls. They are a very poor standard but I and Ed proved you can build a roll from them. I won $1.80 from them and brought that to Limit Cash where I spun it to $10 before getting fed up. At the end of the month, withdraw your $25 and do it all over again if you need to.

                      I think you should re-evaluate your goals to something more realistic. Something like this?

                      Short term goals

                      Play 100 Open Skill League games
                      Bring any cash won above 60c to NL Cash Tables
                      Table select carefully, only play games with high pots and low regs
                      Evaluate my play in all games
                      Watch at least 3 training videos per week.
                      Review at end of month and post tricky spot on forum for advice.

                      Long term goals

                      Build enough of a cash to be a reg at 2NL.
                      Build 20 buy ins and take a shot at 5NL.
                      Identify the Regs in the 2NL & 5NL lobby and pick apart their game
                      Review at end of every month and evaluate my play.
                      Play the Premier League

                      Grade B's point is a valid one. If you never cash out then you're missing the point of poker. Treat yourself from time to time and you will enjoy the game far more. My last large withdrawal got my wife a new settee and me a custom built Poker PC. I've also paid for things like Holdem manager and Notecaddy that have helped my game. If you get to $100, take $10 out and buy yourself something you can look at. Set it in front of you and tell yourself from time to time you earned that.
