9/10/09 No matter what I tried I couldn't get things going this week. Tuesday +100, Wed -500, Thurs -300. My focus was horrible. We'll see if I can refocus for Fridays session.

9/11/09

I decided to take the night off tonight. The last thing that I want to do is play while my head isn't fully in the game. I think it was Mike Caro that wrote about a concept that simply put states that there is a point when you are down that you feel dulled to being down even more. I feel like this week I fell into that trap. I could have saved some money but I made some bad calls knowing I was beat. Lessons from this week include: When you are behind and the odds don't dictate a call, fold. Sometimes staying at home is the most profitable move especially when you have other things on your mind. Stay focused or go home. Let's see what next week brings.

Bankroll - $2000

$400 average win a night is pretty aggressive at a 2/5. What kind of fish are you playing with, lol.

the tables get pretty deep with 5-6 players usually sitting on 1200+ in chips. A strong player buying in at $500 can usually book a decent win.

I like your take on the two stages of bankroll management but I can see why you might get a little flaming for it!

 

With that in mind when you reach the second stage (conventional - playing within an established BR) are you intending to move up to bigger games as and when you can (start playing 5/10 at $20k for example) or is your challenge set at grinding 2/5 $500buyin regardless of your improved bankroll?

the challange dictates that I stay at 2-5. From the beginning i expected that not jumping up levels would be the hardest part. The whole point is to prove that it can be done at the 2-5 level.

Ok, so after 3 weeks you profit is $1500.

 

If you continue at this rate, your making 500 a week

 

If you carried on that that rate, then... 52 x 500 = 26,000$

 

So. You need to make $1500 more a week then you are currently doing.... I think this challange is aiming to high from staying at the same level.

My goal isn't to win $400 everytime I play, it's to average $400 a day for a year.Sometimes i lose a buy in and sometimes it's a $1200 win.I also have been only able to play 3 sessions a week ao far.
