For serious grinders: reading this blog doesn't give you any edge. Just skip it.
As title says this is my third attempt to successfully finish a personal challenge. Hopefully I can unite this blog with the previous ones, but this can be an unfinished promise too. So what happened since my last post? After I have realized the fail of my previous challenge i decided to make a little break and things getting worse and worse. Some respected community users have decided to left the community so due to the boringness of talking lonely i had to suspend my activity in the crap talk offtopic too. The last bad news was the throw back of the idee of of the second quackroll. I have offered various ways to make that idea come true (I will make a deposit and Unibet will reduce the prizepool from my account or Unibet will give me a poker bonus and after the clearing i would get the freeroll instead of money) but due to the current regulations there is no way organizing a private freeroll. So taking a break seemed to be the best idea.
Some weeks later Unibet faced with bounty freeroll problems and removed the bounties from all the freerolls. I don't want to compare this case to the stop of the ticket exchange but for freerollers this was a big punch in the middle of their face. So I started to play cash games, SNG's, MTT's, tried Hexapro but I didn't feel the rhytm. It was good, it was interesting, but I missed the smell of the challenge, when you make a rule, that you can't deposit and every bad decision or tilted session has their own punishment.
Some days ago I got a confirmation that bounty freerolls won't return in the next months so that was the right moment when i decided to make an another from zero to console challenge. Why this? Because i saw some Subnautica gameplay and I really want to play with that game and I never had any console so I think it's time to buy one for me in the end of the year.
The first step of the challenge is winning 5 tickets from freerolls or using the sneaky way and accumulating €3 from Twitch streams.
RYE says reading something else is useful.
Yesterday I have met with my best friend, who also plays poker, but his territory is the always wawing ocean of Pokerstars, and we spoke about the fields, the bonuses and of course the client. He told my stories about the pro, who thinks increasing the rake is good for the players, the anti pro measures and the feeling observing the high stakes tables when a whale is in action and I told him something about the soft fields, the live event qualifiers and the life without tracking software. After i went home and started the client I recieved one new notification. I though I have got some present but it was a late notification alert from the day before. That was the moment when I realized what's wrong with the client, why funkctions are missing and why lasts it so long repairing a simple bug like this. The client is in early access mode. Most of the funkctions are working, but developers have a lot to do till the updated and bug free version.
I think that's the reason why they couldn't solve the bounty freerolls bug which currently makes a road very slippery for players who want to start building a bankroll from nothing but all of you know the phrase about the efforts and goals. So I did a little assessment in the previous days, tasted the water of freeroll sharks, rolled with Davitsche followers and observed some €1 MTT's to figuring out the best way to leave the freerolls and jump in the world of cash game tables. I never thought that I still have the killer instinct in my fingers when somebody goes allin and I want to call him and collect the bounty.
This is a bad habit or let's say more professional it's a leak like calling someone's preflop with almost premium hands or with TPTK on the flop when you know your enemy's VPIP is less than 10% and the PFR should be also around 7%. Oh man, why am I trying to showing better poker skills then I have? The correct form of the last sentence iseems like this: this is a bad habit like calling someone's allin preflop who only showed premium hands yet. It's better going back to plan:
My main road will look like:
The sneaky way:
The test period will end on Monday, next week I will follow this plan.
