Starting January i will try to grind the SNG $0.10 NL 360 Turbo.

I will play 100 games with 4-6 tables.

I'm taking up this challenge to see how my game improves and what more is needed to improve it.

As of now i'm playing some of it to be familiar and have a feel of it.

Thanks (19honu62, CannonLee, pokerstar671) for the encouragement.

I know it is easy to say than done, but basically i need to win 2 of this tourney to break even.

No more passive play. Time for a tight aggressive kind of play and need to have a good read and no more calling because raising is lots of fun and it ease up pressure in making good call so i say "let them make the decision"

After watching spacegravy session video 3 on push and fold.

I try to apply it on hyper turbo short hand 6 man $1.50 and got amazing result.

I know it too early to drive into conclusion that it is very effective but if you follow his advice and with some luck it could be profitable.



1st Try.

2nd try and the villain just got lucky here



the last hand

Update on this side challenge.

Since i went on a good start i tried to continue this Short Hand $1.5 SNG Turbo.

And base on what Spacegravy's advice on shove and fold with 10BB and with some luck

I triple my Bankroll from $12.50 to $32.95.

I set a side the $10 for the actual challenge on this thread and use the winnings from the initial $1.50 investment.

So i still got $22.95 and i will continue this side challenge for the next few days and see what will happen.
Wish me Luck

should have a profit if 10.4% ROI
I start it with the initial buy-in of $1.5 and got lucky to win it on 1st try
I review the chart and it show i re-buy on the 8th and 20th Games but the running bankroll is the profit already.
So basically it start as a try that turn positive.
No bankroll target any positive ROI i will be happy.
I will play as much as i can but since i got a January Challenge i will stop it temporary and will play it sparely.
It simulates like a final table
