It is a tough challenge, you don't have to win it every time. I'm gonna try at least once every month, but I expect to fail a fair percentage of the time. Don't push it, learn from it, and we'll all take it down at some point.

Good luck

My bankroll is just over $50 ! i will only play the $0.25 games until i do this challenge. I just need to get back into the winning zone and stop calling people all in with any pairs ak aq aj a10 kq kj k10 and so on.

This ain't going to good I will post results later. Last night I couldn't stop my self calling with the worst off it. Im not playing the game as well as I know I can. After I loose a big hand it makes me tilt so bad I just jam on all tables that are open. I have never got into this habbit before but the last few days I just can't help my self. I think i might start playing 1 table at a time till I pick it back up again. I've played about 45 games and bankroll is about $4. Fingers crossed I can turn this around and play the way I know I can play. Good luck everyone else in their challenge hope nothing like this happens to you.

Keep at it M! Perserverance is the key.

3 Challenges in at it's still so early in the month. May I ask how many tables you would play at a time in these games?

That's not too bad I suppose. I find my brain starts getting fried when I move above 2 at a time, 3 at a push. Multi-tasking is not one of my specialities.

A big to you M for having so much commitment to the challenges, your putting in some hours!

M,

I think you know already that you have a lot of people here wanting to help. Don't be afraid to ask! You have the tools and maybe you need some guidance! We have all been there! Maybe it would be best to study for awhile and play less games. You can't go on tilt! The challenge isn't going anywhere so relax and take your time.

Gidee Up!

Yup what Chris said,
You that you are trying your best, and still keep em head high. Maybe take some time out to review your plays. That may help =]
As long as you are making good decisions then you are good =]

Try cutting down to 2 tables, i find multi tabling on these difficult, you can't get a good read on anyone if you play too many.

Keep at it, I'm sure you will do it in time.

Dear m.bisland,

Have you sent one or some of your histories to Dave for a possible review?

it really helped to see my game disected by a third party (and to see where I was not paying attention to the table becuase i had 3 other tables up)

May help. Other than that relax and play your game dont worrie about posting any more results till Next weekend so your not thinking about it.
i was finding i felt under extra pressure to get good daily results to post so decided i would wait and just post the graph once or twice a week.

Obiously dont know if that is affecting your play but i do know it was getting to mine.

take it easy

Grade b
