Hello,

July Challenge Update:

Hands Played: 88833 / 85000

Total Hands: 675197 / 1000000

Winrate:

  • 4NL: 12.27bb/100
  • 10NL: 10.34bb/100

July was a good overall month, nothing out of ordinary. Don't have much to add. I'm just a bit disappointed that I could not build a decent sized stack for the Summer Bash competition.

On the other hand this month I managed to beat my previous record from 1190bbs to 1264bbs. I had an extremely long session that was one of the best and worse at the same time. Never ever I felt so conflicted Rofl Teardrop finishing up in a session, but this is the first time in my life where I got one outted on the river, twice in the same day. This topped it off so there's no need to talk about the other ridiculous things that poker can bring. Rofl

See you next time and good luck at the tables (please stop hitting quads on the river tho).

Hey nice, amazing how you have kept this volume up. Win rate is still amazing too across both stakes.

Guess it has been asked before but how many tables are you generally playing and are you looking to move up to 25nl? Seems you're crushing the smaller limits

Hello,

August Challenge Update:

Hands Played: 105152 / 85000

Total Hands: 780349 / 1000000

Winrate:

  • 10NL: 3.28bb/100

 

Short update on August results. As you can see I managed to put in the volume but unfortunately the results are not the desired ones. But as long as they are positive I cannot complain. I took a short break in September to recharge my batteries so the volume will probably be below the monthly target but overall we are pretty ahead in the challenge so no presure on the volume side.

This is all for now, see you next month.

Hey UAC,

Sorry for the late answer. I always start with 6 tables and when I feel like I reached a focused state and want to put in the volume I add 2 more. But the optimal setup is for sure 6 tables (for me). As an exception I might drop to fewer tables if I have to focus on a specific one but I did that at higher stakes mostly.

Moving up on stakes depends mostly on my bankroll and other factors. I used to play 25NL regularly but these days less. I mostly dip my toes in the pool using tickets from promotions and rakeback. I'm looking forward to the changes that Unibet want to do with the rake on mid stakes. Smile

Hello,

September Challenge Update:

Hands Played: 88002 / 85000

Total Hands: 868351 / 1000000

Winrate:

  • 4NL: 3.70bb/100
  • 10NL: 5.45bb/100


The bad results continued in September as you can see. The month was a total rollercoaster, this was the first time I almost busted my roll multiple times playing 25NL. I did not add the winrates for this stake as I have under 5k hands but it was around -15bb/100.

At the lowest point my roll was 4.68€ and 800 Bonus Points. I could have added more funds and have a roll for 10NL but I decided to make a personal challenge and see if I can come back from this. So I decided to buy a 4NL ticket with the bonus points and started grinding 6 tables with 50bbs. I managed to clear the ticket at 26€. Now I was sitting on 30€ and decided to apply the same strategy playing 10NL but a bit more cautious. So I was 4 tabling 10NL with 50bbs. After around 14 hours of grind my bankroll was back in a spot where I could play my normal game. So to all the micro grinders that are reading this you can build a roll from almost nothing if you are motivated and focused (and have a little bit of luck of course Happyshy).
PS: Don't play 10NL with 30€, respect bankroll management. I was prepared to add more funds in case I busted.

On a positive note, October started very good so I expect better winrates compared to the previous months. 

Short story from today:
I decided to take another shot at 25NL using a ticket bought with Bonus Points. So again I split it into 2 buyins (BRM is very important Rofl), I busted pretty fast the first 50bbs and I was left with the other 50. At one point I am in the big blind with 69ss Smirk, MP min raises, everyone folds to SB which calls and I decide to complete. Flop: JdTs7s, so a pretty good flop for us and our ~50bbs, everyone checks and the turn is the As, the dream came true. SB checks, I decide to bet pretty big so I can shove on the river; MP folds and SB hits us with the good old min raise, at this point I was a bit worried that we might be beat but there's no way I'm folding a flush with 50bbs so decided to shove. Surely the SB snap calls and delivers the bad news, he turns over J4ss. I was already thinking my 25NL adventure was done but RNGJesus Angel had something else planned for us and decided to give us another chance at this shot.

Surely after this miracle, things went pretty good and I managed to clear the ticket.

Hello,

October is finally over and with great pleasure I announce that also the challenge is over. Thanks to the flop race I managed to put enough volume in order to finish the challenge 2 months earlier. And what a month this was, by far my best month of the year, I'm sure I ran well but also my game improved a lot since I first started the challenge.

October Challenge Update:

Hands Played: 151747 / 85000

Total Hands: 1020098 / 1000000

Winrate:

  • 10NL: 13.18bb/100
  • 25NL: 9.54bb/100


I also had some 50NL sessions with positive winrate but the volume is not big enough so I did not include that.
I'll add below a graph representation of how it all went since I had 4 left in my account from last month. I excluded the numbers but you'll get the idea.

This is all from me guys. I hope this blog helps some of you to get the motivation and determination to get on the tables because it surely helped me.

I'll be back next year with a bonus update on how my entire year went and compile all the results.

Thanks a lot for following and good luck at the tables!
