Hello everyone, my presentation can be viewed through this link.

This year my main Challenge will be turning $50 into $1,000 playing poker tournaments with start date scheduled before February 1, 2013.

Interested?

I'll explain then what is this challenge!

- BR initial $51,54 and 29,44 FPP/VPPs

- BronzeStar.

- The challenge ends when it reaches $1000+.

What will I play?

- I'll start with: SNG from 18/45/90 up to $2 and MTTs (including satellites & freerolls) up to $3.

Bankroll Management?

- The idea is to play with 50 buy-ins and descend/ascend barely reaches the 50 buy-ins of the previous/next.

- Then when the bank grow and is at about $200/$250 I'll add MTTs/SNGs up to $6 to my work plan, and later when i get to the $500+ I want to focus exclusively on MTTs up to $22 until the end of my goal.

- I'll post some hands i have doubts or find interesting.

- I will do this challenge in multi-table tournaments, because it is a format that I want to learn and think it's more interesting for who is folowing.

This is inspired by the current challenge of the professional André ''acoimbra'' Coimbra on PS to turn $100 into $100K this year 2013 (good luck to him)!


Here I put a daily update, with the balance of the day and the daily evolution of the BR.

I appreciate all your criticisms and/or suggestions.

Regards, John "uaredead xD''

Good luck! Just a question here, are you comfortable starting out playing the $2 SnG's with a bankroll of $50, only 25 buy ins? Very aggressive/risky. Keep us updated.

Hey mate, i will be playing SNGs up to $2 untill i reach $300+, BUT i start with the 45/90 $0,50, and a few shots at the $1 90 man / $1,50 45 man untill i reach $150+ and play with 100+ buyins with low risk. The goal is to play $2,50 180s man only when i have more then $500 (in terms of SNGs). Ty for the support
