The grind has started

Today played

3 sit n goes

2 x $1.50 9 man sit n go
1 x $3.50 9 man sit n go

and 2 cash games

1 x 6 man table buying in at $1.20
1 x 6 man table buying in at $1.20

All sit n goes i failed to place in the money. In fact I came last in one of them, my patience is my biggest weakness just making many silly mistakes and rushing.

Cash game i made a loss of about $, this is going to be a long year…

The Poker Challenge 2015

This year is the year of challenges and goals!  I’ve got 1 year to try to make £10000 (US $15000) or over from £500 on online and offline poker. My skills are amateur although i have played many cash and tournaments casually, my personal skills in poker are about 4 years of casual play both online and offline (more offline as i prefer to see people and reactions) Previously i used to play in a weekly local pub league and played in the national tournament winning around £500 coming 3rd out of 200 is people.
I’m more of a “feel” based player rather than calculating pot odds etc, I do prefer Tournament play compared to cash games.
Why? 
I need to prove to everyone they can make 10k within a year just by playing a certain set of rules when playing poker and playing within limits of the bankroll. I feel anything can be achieved with time and effort especially with Poker.

Where? 
Predominately I will be playing online on bother Pokerstars and full tilt poker but i will play a few games off line as this is my preference in various casinos across the UK. I will keep my Online poker ID’s anonymous   for the time being as I would prefer no one to play into me while i grind this out.

How? 
I will track all my money and live by a strict bankroll of only using 10% anytime i buy into either a cash game or tournament. I will also track every single game and post if up this blog. I will post up a spreadsheet in my next post for everyone to track my progress.
