Climbing is no easy job!


Long time no writing

By: spid3rix @ 03:44 (EDT) / 159 / Comment ( 0 )

 Since I haven't written anything for quite a while, I have decided to begin once more.

There several purposes in this:

- first one would be to practice my writing skills in English (it never hurts)

-second should be sharing my poker experiences

A recap of my poker year so far would be in two words up and down.

This year I have managed to climb from NL2 to NL25 for 4 times and the reason why I have restarted this was cashout due to several of reasons.

At the end of last year, I have bought an apartment and this requires a lot of money and i have used the first climb to NL25 for furniture and some stuff in the house.

Second climb was in two months from February to April and I cashed out to buy a car since I have felt the need of having one.

Third climb was a challenge with a friend - who gets first from 50$ to 1k $ and I won it in 2 and half months. I think I could won it faster, but when I reached 970$ bankroll I hit a downswing and it took me a bit of time to climb again to 1k $.

Now I am in the 4th climb and I have reached already NL25. The bad part is that I hit a downswing and I had to go down to NL10.

4th climb came with another challenge - from 50$ to 10k $.

The bad part is that I am a bit tired now after so much poker played this year.

Anyone knows some techniques to keep grinding in this conditions?


Cheers and good luck at the tables!
