After my horrible start I am almost back on track. Still it's hard though these guys don't give a thing about the $1,50 they put in and are willing to take huge risks.

If anyone is going to play these I have a few tips that helped me:

- Be very tight
- Sometimes limping in late position with suited connectors is really recommended
- It's very hard to get people with a flush or straight draw out of the pot
- And further just play simple ABC poker

Now I just hope I can make the push to profit

So finally at profit again, I know I could, just had some bad luck at beginning.

at 1/5 of the challenge and $1,84 profit and 8/20 ITM with

- 2 first places
- 5 second places
- 1 third place

too bad I started that awful, could have been on a nice spot now :S well still 80 to go

Didn't play these one for a while, I got some horrible bad luck lately but because of the bankroll management and my ability now to avoid tilting didn't got me too awfully punished. altough I did loss about $40 (of my $170 BR) But I think of just grinding it up back with these ones.

But also these ones gave me a lot of back luck, but as we all learned you will profit on the long run as long as your decisions are right, and today it seemed to be just like that again.

So I will just adjust my goal a bit and will be grinding these till I reach a bankroll of $220 then I will move up to the $3,50 9-man SnG and will go back to $1,50 if I go beneath $200.
