Happy New Year to all !! May the force of the runner runner be with you and your life be beautiful !
I started the year with... some Poker... obviously :) After I kinda deserted the online fields during the second part of 2015 because of extensive travelling, I decided to reboost my online motivation with a new solidarity challenge. Updates about those are always available HERE.
I decided to allocate €500 to this bankroll journey and I will mostly be playing Pot Limit Omaha cash games with it. MTTs will also be on the menu but in a conservative way. The site I opted for to start this challenge, is Winamax. I might transfer the bankroll to another site if the trafic is not high enough but as I am not playing more than 2-3 tables at once, the French site will be ok to start with.
I chose, for once, not to set myself a bankroll goal as such. The sky is the limit ! Instead, I will just focus on accumulating as much money as possible without taking too many risks. Volume is also not a priority at all. I would like to get better and be able to book a profit out of my own game results without necessarily counting on a big rakeback bonus while being just an even or even a losing player.
I will play a very standard 100-buy-in strategy for MTTs and I will be playing 50 buy-ins in cash games with shots at higher limits when I feel I am playing well.
Since January 1st, I have been playing €10 PLO games with shots at the €20 PLO buying in only €15.
1.757 hands played for a result of +€100.68
I have played a dozen MTTs with only one small cash which brings us to a total of -€52.17 out of the €60 invested. There is some room for improvement i guess :p
Bankroll today: €548.51 (+€48.51)
Feedback and advices are always welcome of course ! You can follow the challenge in this blog or on Facebook. I might add some videos and/or some twitching at some point but I'd rather focus on the challenge for now.
I have not yet made up my mind about the beneficiary but I am planing to donate 20% of the total bankroll at the end of July 2016. Should I go broke like a fish, I still will donate 20% of the initial bankroll (20% of €500 = €100).
