Wow, I haven't exactly kept with my original game plan on this blog. I've had a horrible couple of months and poker and with school and life and the whole rest of it, this blog was pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities.
With that said, I plan to start a new challenge for myself. I remember when I first started playing about a year ago I put $50 on Full Tilt nd quickly busted it messing around with sit n go's. Busting that 50 really gave me the motivation to better my game. Ive had a small size bankroll and haven't had to redeposit for a while. To get back in touch with my roots I'm going to start with $50, starting at the .05/.10 level and try to grind it from the ground up. I've also laid some ground rules for this.
They are as Follows:
1: I can only play 4 tables maximum.
2: I have a stop-loss plan of 3 BI. Then I must quit the session for at least 1 hour before i play again.
3: Keep track of my results on Poker Tracker and a spreadsheet.
4: Update my blog at least once daily so I can see my day to day progress.
5: Minimum 20 buy-ins for each level to move up. Move back down if I only have 15 buy ins for the level.
I think with solid focused lay (i.e. no browsing the net, and being a ding dong in general) I should be able to make a decent profit here. By the end of January I should be very well off because I will be getting an ironman end of the year bonus of about $600, and I will be out of school until mid-January which means lots of time for poker.
Here are my stats for the day so far:
Starting Br: $50 End of 12/07: $56.40 Profit: +$6.40
