I`m ahead!!! "My Ferguson challenge" update - Should this be a brag!!!
I posted this http://www.cardschat.com/f13/chris-f...nge-i-m-96992/
on 28th October 07. As I put in this thread, I was `fast tracking the challenge by starting with a bankroll of $97.57.
Anyway, the good news is that by using good bankroll management, NOT GOING ON TILT AS MUCH , using good pot odds
, not being afraid to get busted out of a tourny, it has worked!!!
I now have a true profit of $651.89 - I`m well impressed with myself
Unlike in the past, I have not done this by one big tourny hit, it is by a mixture of finding the right games and, again, acepting bad beats and being happy that I was a big fav when I got my money in. I have then either left for the day, or dusted myself down and started again. If I`m going to play on, I`ll always max up the buy in (so, if say if I started with $50, took a hit that took me down to $25, I immediatly top up to $50 again.)
I have also been able to walk away from a table when I have been well ahead, and also, if I lose 1/2 my buy in I`m off - different to the good old days when I would try to stay and `win it back` !!!
I am now starting to be a winning cash game player - until the last few months - unheard of!!!
Since October, I am showing a profit in all three areas, being MTT`s, SNG`s and cash games
One final point, I think it is fair to say I would not have done this with out the advice and help of the good contributors on this site - even though the critisism can be a little hard to take from time to time
So thanks guys
