Winner of the time vault challenge 2013 Making the best of 2015
Send PM

It's a beautiful sunday morning, from my window I can see the snow covered trees with the sun shining through them, it's all very silent, except for the distant sound of steps and traffic a few blocks away.

But I am not thinking of the beautiful landscape, I am thinking of depositing so I play the Sunday Storm. I'll resist the temptation and stick to the plan of only learning this rest of February and placing a deposit at the end of the month.

Right now I am sitting on my confortable couch and wondering, why did I bust my bankroll? Just read a nice post in the blog of EvokeNZ, stating he deposited for the last time in 2007.... I also saw the Nanonoko interviews, as well as stories from guys like Lex Veldhuis, André Horror77, all about growing a relatively small deposit to a giant bankroll. Well I am not a poker wonder kid or a math genius, just the average Joe. Not the average Joe Hachem. 

Aren't the average players of the world the oil that feeds the machine of the poker world? The guys that make it possible for the other guys to get paid?

This year of 2013 is for me about taking the leap. Taking the next step towards solid winning, solid strategies.

Here is the next post about the last five hands of each of the tourneys which made me bust my bankroll last 7th of February.
