The $2 Challenge: Building a Cash Game BR
So, I like to give myself little challenges every now and then just to keep things fun and interesting. This is my latest one and I thought I would share it with everyone to see if anyone else was interested.
The goal is to build a BR from the lowest possible buy-in at the lowest possible stakes. I play on Full Tilt, so the lowest stakes are .05/.10 and the minimum buy-in is $2. My goal is to reach $100 from $2.
Note that this is going to be a seperate BR, but part of my main BR. So, my BR is broken up into 2 parts. The BR I have build from $2 (which I can only use for this challenge) + The rest of my BR (which I can use for everything else) = My full BR.
A few rules:
-You must start at the lowest stakes and buy-in for the site you play at. Afterwards, you can buy in for any amount you wish as long as its within the $2 BR you have built. So, lets say you manage to turn $2 into $20 in one session, in your next session you can buy in from anywhere between $2 (min) - $20 (max cash game challenge BR). You arent allowed to buy in using money from your full BR, unless you lose your initial starting BR and you are starting over.
-As long as you have money on the table, you have to play a minimum of 1 hour. This is so there are no 'Hit n Run' type strategies, unless its at then end of the required hour. Afterwards, you can end play at any point you wish.
-Play only the amount you intial sat down with. So, there is no reloading chips. You play with what you have until you lose it or you cash out.
-If you do bust out and rebuy, it will count as a seperate session. So, lets say you buy into 3 sessions for $2, these are 3 cash game sessions. If you buy in for $6, lose it, and dont rebuy, this is only 1 session.
-Multi-tabling is allowed, as long as you are only using your $2 BR.
-Also, keep log and track of your sessions. Your buy ins, cashouts, and time played. Im using pokerdomintor to keep track of my games.
-Keep in mind that you going to start playing at super short stack, so I'd advise trying to find a table with stacks similar to yours to start. As for BRM, you can start following a plan once your stack starts to build.
So, for those of you interested. Good Luck.
