I have been lurking here for sometime now, I decided that I would join your community which I have admired for a long time.

I am going to post my progress in this thread starting with what I have in my account now, and win or lose I will post it here.

I am a tight/aggressive player - Played on partypoker for 1.5 years, and have cashed in a few live tourneys in Vegas where I used to reside. My mom was actually a shill for Golden Nugget in around 1993, so Poker has always been around.

Goal = $50 to $1000 in a month

Starting with $50.00 I placed in this tournament the night before last:

Which put me at right around $200

I cashed my 50.00(I'm not rich and it made me feel better) and played in a small cash game, losing a few bucks - SO - my journey starts here:

begin.jpg


I will be editing this page frequently, updating with each win/loss I endure.

My goal is to work up to 1k playing strictly multi tournaments. Of course a big win can do this, but I'm sticking to low buy games.

Wish me luck and hope to talk with and possibly play with many of you soon.

Blake

mtt, no. too much variance, i dont see a 1k+ cash coming from $1 mtt's in one month. (all your BR can afford are the cheap mtt's)

jump into 10max nlhe, grind to $400 and see what you can do with the medium-low stakes mtts.

either way, GLHF

I agree with this, if you were on stars it would be different because those low limit tourneys pay out a lot more for final tables because of the larger fields but on full tilt just wont happen.

Well, just to clarify - I am going to be playing in a few 10+1 as they come so the pools are relatively decent. I know when not to run, I look for a decent pool. Please poll for me! It makes me feel like I can do it! =)

Actually my br won't hold for many 10+1 - can you tell me what nlhe would be? Any help is really appreciated, I play NL best, but I can play a decent limit game also. I'm a grind stalker, I'm always on it.

First Update - AUGUST 06

Well, some ups and downs, placed 300ish in the midnight Madness:

Got into my first final table on FT which resulted in the following:
w1-1.jpg


This was the second to last hand of the tourney - beautiful - he had ppA

w1-2.jpg


First win on FT

w1-3.jpg



So after all this, multi table only, here is where I stand:

This is the second day of my personal competition to reach 1k witin a month playing mtts only.

Thanks to those who've voted for me! :D

See you at the tables tonight!

bankroll. $272 means you play cash games with 20 or more buyins (10max) or 2% of your bankroll into a mtt ($5.50 is close enough)

BR = bankroll
NLHE = no limit hold em

Proper BR games means games that will allow you some room to maneuver within your BR (ie: You have a $200 BR, you should play $10max and $1-5 SNGs/MTTs, not $15 SNGs etc)

In my experience best way to have a very fast increase in BR is to minimum buy at higher stakes.

Ive done 100 to 1000 in a month like three times already like that.

Two of those three i managed to donk it all away later, but still, if i had kept my focus after it, id have done great with it. Hitting the 1000 made me loosen up way 2 much though.

he can make it if he FT's or wins a 10+1 turny so he can do it or if he plays 3 sng's at a time and does well he can

Hit my 2nd royal ever!

1st was at partypoker - I will post a screen of this one next time I update.

Other mentionables - 4 of a kind 10s and 4 of a kind 3s

Also played with my first pro on full tilt - Lee Watkinson

We both busted out of a 10+1

Playing in the sattelite token frenzy at the moment, got too lose before -

So I'm now at 220.00

I will slow it down now - I believe this is technically the 2nd day of my goal but I will make sure - It started when I posted here first.

Reason: QQ(me) vs. j 10 offsuit I called his all(he pushed from sb I was bb 1 other player folded) he hit a straight 8 to Q
