  • 20$ to 200$ challenge

    What up community!

    Yesterday i had a discussion with my buddy who is not much into poker so he said i cant make 100 dollars in a week from small BR. Eventually it came down to a bet, and my target is to make 10 into 100 bucks in a week, otherwise i have to pay him 100$, which is 70 Euros for us in LV, but if i do it, he pays me. I started this challenge yesterday but decided to make post so i need to track my progress and hopefully this disciplines me to actually complete the challenge, because i am lazy right? I will try to remember to post sitrep daily. I have time until 00:00 27 March, Eastern European Time.

    I am doing this on two sites, Stars and not Stars

    Plan is to play 2NL and when BR gets big enough add sngs and grind them until my eyes bleed out , at stars i am currently at 14.73, other site - 20.06, so far going well, although few mins ago i had preflop AI KKvsQQ and villain hit their 2-outer

    Anyway i plan to mix in cash with sngs until i (hopefully) complete the challenge on one of the sites, because 14 tabling sngs would be flat out boring.

    And obviously, i am not allowed to reload, if i bust, i lose the bet.

    Cliffs: -BR Stars=21.98, Pacific=23.81; Was down to around 10-11 on both sites yesterday, but looking better now -Not on schedule, but if i can make 50$ until Monday at 2-5NL, this could be doable; -I am up 10$ at cash on both sites, slightly better than breakeven SNG's at Pacific and down about 3$ at SNG's on Stars; -Winning 6,73$ at MMillions 2.20$ contributed to BR, but i only played it because i was already registered before challenge, and obviously too bad i didnt score bigger, but i feel pretty good about my play and probably shoving with Q8 on BTN with 15 bigs is borderline, but overally i played standard MTT lagtard game umbup: -Will have a good night sleep and think how to proceed, if i grind cash until Monday i could probably take shots at 5NL and 10 NL and i would only need several stacks to complete challenge and win bet then; -If i fail and have smth like 60$ on Wednesday late evening, might play heads-up 60 dollar SNG and 4bet jam AK

        -BR, Stars=30.12, Pacific=28, actually didnt play a lot, maybe 1k hands cash and some SNGs on Pacific.
        -I have been given one extra day, because yesterday i planned session, but after some hands at PSO Home games i had urgent job to do so my friend agreed that i get extra 24 hours because i only played 85 hands on Sunday at PSO
        -I like my new discipline, had very strong urge to enter 3.30$ MMillions ME deadline sat, but i didnt do it, because that would be terribad BR management. Not that long ago, being on monkey tilt, i went to play 50NL Zoom with 200$, nearly busting my roll
        -I dont know if i can do this in 4 days, but not giving up yet, only have to get volume in

          Good Luck, you will need it!. it would be quite diffuclt to do it only with 2nl so you need a lot of help from SNG

            Cliffs: -BR Stars:28.11, Pacific:29.83 -These numbers are something i dont understand, being up both 3,61$ cash on Pacific through 840 hands and net won $4,36 from 14 1 dollar SNG's, how can i only be up 1,83$ total BR, it cant be the rake lol, but its too late maybe i will figure it out tomorrow; -1k hands on Stars, 3,5 buy-ins below EV(AA vs 3outer, QQ vs 2 outer and smth else), but only one buy-in down net profits, so i actually didnt play that bad, which is inspiring; -Looks like i am not going to win this bet, but will grind anyway and see how far can i go until friday. I need to grind 10$ so i can have 4buy-in shot at 5NL. Not giving up yet! umbup:
