I'ts been 5 months since i stop playing poker for a while to do something else, to pursue my career as an engineer. I took an exam last april to be a engineer but unfortunately I failed and the worst thing is that on the day of the exam my father passed away after battling cancer. That would be the badbeat of my life holding QQ against AK and spike AK on the flop, such a terrible year for me.

After the tragedy that came, i decided to really stop playing poker this year and take another shot in the exam to be a successful engineer. From the start of the year I made a goal to build my bankroll from $0 to $10k (10k challenge). So far I've made a little progress for the 1st month of my challenge and build my bankroll from $0 to $80. That month of May I decided to sell my dollars to a friend and sell $74 only so that i'll still have something ($6) to play if i decided to comeback. But unfortunately my friend didn't pay me and it was a scum, i never see her again. I think it was another badbeat for me.

So for the past months i was really bored i decided to play poker at Pokerstars, just playing for fun and from $6 that was left in my bankroll, i lost $5 and left with only a dollar. I play half a dollar 360 man SNG and luckily finished 3rd for about $18, I say last money never lose! .

For the month of June, i saw my self grinding back again. It was a good timing because of the 100B milestone on Pokerstars with so many promotions and a lots of good stuff. Not much luck on my part for i only added just a little to my bankroll.

I started $34.06 for the month of july to pursue again my challenge. It's mid of july now and i was able to build my bankroll to $70.45 playing 50c 45/90 man SNG. The goodnews is Pokerstars announce the MicroMillions V. This is the right time to recover for the months i never played and to build a nice bankroll to finish my challenge. Although this buy ins are to much for my bankroll, and so i decided to play all my bankroll for this events whichever fits the time. This is now or never. Micromillions V, ship it!! Goodluck to me
