I had a bad end to the year 2008 in the poker world, and to help combat this downswing I have decided to try and build a roll from only €250. It's something I've wanted to do for a while, to prove to myself I am worth my salt as a poker player, and I have a little side bet on the go to keep me motivated.
I started on the 5th January and it's going verryyyy slowly. Am currently up to all of €400, and have earnt €50 of rakeback so far. Though I guess relatively speaking, it's a good start. I am also working may way up a weekly leaderboard to get some cash on the side...
Currently I'm playing heads ups of, the €10-€20 variety. So far I'm surprised at how good the standard is compared to the €100 Heads Ups I usually play. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference, except for the occasional donk.
My New Years Resolutions for this year are simply:
- Play within my bankroll
- Have a break when too many buy-ins are lost
- Don't play whilst tilting
- Cash out from my bankroll at various intervals
- To play longer sessions
I'll be keeping you posted on how the €250 challenge is going!
