Guys, I failed. Those watching the stream can attest but I was getting 3 outed game after game and the roll was down to 50 euros so I played a 50 euro Hexapro, which I won for 150, then played 2 x 25e games and won one for 75e putting the roll at 180. Unfortunately the challenge was just too tilting for me today, but I'll be back grinding tomorrow.
By my count I played 202 games today which is crazy volume, if I never see another 4 euro game again it'll be too soon
Final hand of the 50e Hexapro, I 3b pre, check/call flop and check/call his turn jam:
@Brocky I was one of watching online stream more than a hour ... my question: what will be with challenge if you did not win that first HX pro ?
2nd question: will you play them regularly or only when in TILT mode ?
Wish you good luck, you an inspiration for many of us!!!
You tok it on and really put in the volume so you gave it a chance man! Don’t see it as a fail. I see it more from the perspective that there is more time needed to such a challange due to the variance in the HUSNGs. Think splitting up the volume over more days would probably make it less mentally taxing and tilting. It’s just such a punch in the face when you smash volume and get sucked out every time. Had those sessions myself where I blasted in hands put have come out BE and like thinking “What the f#%¥! I thought I crushed?”. Or worse and being stuck but be feeling was that you had made profit. It’s also a bad taste mentally.
You deserve credits and think you would have made a nice graph over a longer period of time. But doing so would be financial -EV due to hourly rate.
Thanks for the kind words. The challenge was only really designed to keep me busy until the new year where I will go back to my normal games (25/50 Euro heads up games) but if I'm honest it was highly unlikely I would run good enough to complete €20 to €2k in 4 days. If I had lost that Hexapro I would've just given up on the challenge, probably taken a couple of days off then started grinding hard in the new year.
I wanted to succeed with the challenge but after 200 games at the 4s today I just got a bit bored to be honest. I don't plan on playing many Hexapros going forward, as I said on stream I'm looking to play 30k HU games next year so all my concentration needs to go on that!
Another fun day in store. Feeling worse today, barely slept and decided to have a little punt on blackjack as my self-exclusion from the casino had expired. It wasn't the greatest of starts
Fortunately I won back what I lost so just snap banned the casino again, will be likely putting in another solid grind today (probably at the 10s with some 25s if things go well). Funnily enough this mini bankroll that I'm building is all from a 6 euro cash ticket that you get from the challenge points. I'm not even exaggerating when I say I got it in early September but could never be arsed to see 300 flops so just shoved my stack in a couple of times a week to either bust the ticket or double up and stop it from expiring. Withdrew what I had left in my account over Christmas and still had about 140 flops to see with this ticket so thought why the hell not. Fired up 8 tables, seeing flops with all kinds of junk and somehow managed to walk away with 20 euros after 300 flops. That 20 euros is now 180, maybe I should see if I can go the whole of 2019 without depositing...
Was contemplating starting a new thread for the new year so will probably do that today as well.
Run good guys
@Brocky Watched your last vid late last night, the hexapro was very entertaining and I see you're up nice and early on a Sunday morning messing about in the casino, but I do have one serious question.
What is your bank roll management system, more to the point, do you have a bank roll management plan?
I generally only keep around £300 in the account for when I'm grinding the 25s as that gives me 13 or 14 buy ins. If I bust that in a day then I generally just call it quits and start again with the same amount the next day, which helps limit any losses. Anything I win (say I finish the day on £800), I will withdraw and start the next day with the £300. My bankroll is sufficiently large enough to sustain a long downswing at the 25s but who knows if my mental game is
Seems like a basic solid plan, more so than grinding all day and then shoving it all on a big Hexapro. I hope you don't do that regularly, and at least you have the sense to self exclude when necessary. Good luck in the new year and I hope you run a bit better on the "proper" challenge, I'll be following.
