Just bored and wanted to set a challenge for myself...

The challenge isnt to make a certain amount but to challenge myself to play one type of format for a while.

Im going to be playing some .02/.04 fixed limit 6max until the end of the month and see how much I can make.

Im not going to play any tournaments/sngs unless it is free or I win a seat with my fpps.

After this if I can make at the very lowest $100 I will most likely do a sng/mtt challenge.

This is just a personal challenge so I most likely wont be posting about strategy and hh and cool stuff like that.

very swingy today in the flhe... but i ended in the green... played 2 tournaments this morning 27c turbo mtt and 55c turbo mtt for some fun.. cashed the 55c for like 1-2$

total bankroll around 17 something

sent 7 to ftp to gamble.. I absolutely must uninstall full tilt poker... just isnt the same with the new black jack and roulette games.... always tempted to gamble it up not worth it...

starting another session with 10$ wasted my day of grinding on that roulette

So total in this challenge I did around 6000+ hands and Im up around $3 in the 6max fixed limit

I played maybe 5 tournaments .27c 3x .11c and a 55c cashed for around 1-2$ cant really remember...

I played a 2nl cash game and almost went broke but got lucky and recovered....

I lost $7 in black jack and roulette on fulltilt

------------------------------------------------------------------

So right now I have total of $13.10

I will keep playing fixed limit until the end of this month and throw in a couple mini .11c .27c to take breaks from my fixed limit sessions when im up...

Cant really play much at all for past couple days.

Connection is very bad right now and Im dropping out of games.

I think worst was when I was 12 left in a 55c 500player cap tournament and my connection just bombed on me. I couldnt get back on and blinded down to finish in 8th

So I wont be playing much at all unless my ISP gets things sorted out.

So far in this challenge I played a mix of tournaments and cash.

9000 hands of fixed limit 6max and Im up around $2 something I was up over $5 a couple times but had some bad runs and started basicly playing too many hands I shouldnt have and continuing with weaker type hands against wrong types of players..

But theres alot more to it then that was causing my losses.

Some is just straight up bad beats but I think mostly bad play.

Ayways Im getting back in the swing of things and playing a little better I think.




71 tournaments and Im down -$11.15 but I my hem2 doesnt show my fpp cashes because I won a seat for 5fpps to the $11 sunday storm and I won a seat to the $3.30 saturday micro with 33fpps.

I played the big 2.20 once because my friend bought me into it.

15 .55c mtts If my net had not bombed on me I think I would most likely be in profit for these but it is what it is and I am down -$6.52

The rest were mostly freerolls, a few 27c turbo mtt .11c turbo mtt, and a few .25c sngs.

Almost all of these mtts were payed for with my tournament dollars from the fpp satellites



So after all that my total bankroll is at $24.74 looking forward to taking shots at the next level of fixed limit once my bankroll hits $30..

Just need to get my internet sorted out and start making things happen
