I need to set my self a challenge to get my current bankroll off $31.78 to $100. I will be trying to do this playing in the micros. I have played 399 Sit & Go since my last deposit ranging from $0.25 to $1.50 add this up and its over $100 in buy ins.

The reason i wanna share my challenge is cause i know i will only wanna post good results. If i am sat playing on my own i do really stupid things cause i know no one is watching over me. I have learned so much in the 2 months i been back here and only play my A game 1 in 5 games. I am hoping that having to keep this post updated it will make me play more positive than ever before.

I also think i owe this to every single person here at pso that has put their time and effort into making me a much more stronger player than ever before. If it was not for you i would still be reloading once a week.


Current bankroll $31.78

Thank you all. Ain't played yet as I posted this before bed and I am at work for a few more hours. If anyone is interested my 2nd part review with Dave is tonight. Fingers crossed he can give me some final table advice as I get so tight here I never wanna call or steal. I will start posting my positive runs later.

Bis,

If you didn't attend Dave's training session on proper note taking then watch that video as soon as you can. Then apply it to what you're doing by taking copious notes on the players you're seeing in these micro SNG's as you WILL see a lot of them over and over again. If you have some solid notes on a couple or more players when you hit a FT it can very likely let you know who may be exploitable for steals and re-steals the minute the table opens instead of having to wait a couple orbits to get the lay of the land.

Moving forward comes in hops,skips,fits and starts. Not in leaps and bounds. Stick with it.

Hadrian--"Brick by brick my citizens. Brick by brick."

Good luck man. Get some.

WTG, I think you're getting the hang of this, just be careful not to let success go to your head. Sometimes too much success makes us a little reckless (voice of experience unfortunately).
