I will be brutally honest... I have played about 12 years but never taken poker in any way seriously. Especially and I cannot emphasize this enough with my bankroll management and tournament choices. I am a losing player due to my wild bankroll decisions and reveling in the fact I am in a $109 turbo bounty builder with C.Darwin2, limitless, Bencb etc etc.. so essentially utterly outclassed but I love competition and I get a huge thrill from competing and playing alongside the best in the game. After spewing off a hefty $8k win in 2018 from a few mtt's and winning a tournament live in Vegas, I have decided to try a very constrained and disciplined approach to the game to see if I can actually manage it and also to see whether I can enjoy grinding. My aim is to purely focus on 6 max hyper sng's on Pokerstars and build up my bankroll over a fairly significant period of time without being swayed into blasting it into some mtt's that I am not rolled for.
The below challenge is obviously ambitious but why dream small. I am going to continue my blog and keep you updated of my progress on the challenge.
Also part of the reasoning of writing the blog is to remain focused on the sng's and to not be swayed into playing mtt's until I am suitably rolled for it.
Day 1 - I played for 2 hours and made $20 profit, so a solid start and at the $3.5 level I feel that I have an edge but I do need to be wary of certain players who have a LOT more experience and skills in this discipline than I do. I can learn and try to compete and pick my spots to maximize my profit. I will post again when I reach $150 or go bust
6 MAX HYPER SNG CHALLENGE
$70 bankroll TO $1000 HYPER SNG ($35K BR - 850 HOURS)
$3.5 (6 MAX HYPER) - 15 Games per hour - 10% ROI = $5.25 PER HOUR
Once BR = $300 move to $7 games ~ 44 hours
$7 games - 15 Games per hour - 8% ROI = $8.4 PER HOUR
Once BR = $1200 move to $15 games ~ 107 hours
$15 games - 15 Games per hour - 7% ROI = $15.75 PER HOUR
Once BR = $3600 move to $30 games ~ 152 hours
$30 games - 12 Games per hour - 6% ROI = $21.6 PER HOUR
Once BR = $7500 move to $60 games ~ 180 hours
$60 games - 10 Games per hour - 5% ROI = $30 PER HOUR
Once BR = $10000 move to $100 games ~ 83 hours
$100 games - 8 Games per hour - 5% ROI = $40 PER HOUR
Once BR = $12500 move to $200 games ~ 63 hours
$200 games - 8 Games per hour - 5% ROI = $80 PER HOUR
Once BR = $20000 move to $500 games ~ 94 hours
$500 games - 5 Games per hour - 5% ROI = $125 PER HOUR
Once BR = $35000 move to $1000 games ~ 120 hours
$1000 games - maintain and build
