I recently made deposit on Stars of 25 dollars and my plan is to get to 1200 so I can take my girlfriend of vacation to Cuba. I started out playing 0.05/.10 stakes and went up to 40 bucks. Then I started playing .10/.25 and still am. Its been four days and I am at 161 dollars Big Smile Feeling good about it so far. You think ill succeed Thumbs Up or fail Thumbs Down? Ill also take any good advice if you got any...

If you have a bit of time up your sleeves all i can advise is to follow good Bankroll management. No matter how good a player you are you will always find yourself hitting some downswings.

My only other advice is perhaps set yourself a bottom point where you withdraw. Now that you are up to $161 lets say if you go down to $60 you withdraw and just take her to dinner. That way even if you lose you still won.

I suggest a better bankroll management and would invest ,once or twice a week, part of your money on some MTT (like $10K guaranted or similar) to try to cash a big prize.

Anyway IMHO the dinner idea by SCDosset is great Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I think you will succeed, but i dont know if you will be able to achieve your objectif within the limit time. If you want to take you girlfriend on August, it will be a little tight, because 1200 bucks will not be enough for that travel!

Oh look, it's this thread again.. -.-

Still, I support you, just don't think it will happen, like the other 10.000 before you

"I deposited $10, Do you think I will get $111.325.998- at the end of the year?"

Yes, good idea... I see you're not respecting BR management there but I understand you because your goal is different here... as someone mentioned above, I don't also know if there is a time limit to do it...

Well good luck as you'll need huge ones Cool

Well you have made a good start Thumbs Up
If you stick to a sensible type of bankroll managment and do a propper grinding job take very few chances but maximize your wins.
Keep your feet on the ground and never take all your bankroll to the table even when the goal is in site by that i mean if say you was gonna withdrawal at 1K and you get to 800 dont think it will be easy to play a big cash game like 5/10 and win the rest in no time......this oftern ends in a massive hole in your bankroll. You might get lucky but think about all the time and effort you have put into building this maney up, to loose it all in one go will crush you deep....(i know) Disagree
Stay focused and i wish you all the best...good luck and may you have many great cards......

Im sure the holiday will be sweet and even sweeter knowing you have won all the cash to pay for it! Agree

hmm... you only have 6 BI for 25NL? One downswing/bad session and your back at 0. I would suggest to play NL10, you still have time, until you have 15-20 BI for 25 NL (not optimal, but will greatly reduce the chances of going broke)... good luck Blink

I must admit I always feel confused when I read post like this; not for plan in itself but because seems I'm the only one who is not able to respect plans Tongue Wish all the best for your trip to Cuba

I think u won't get it...
When people are rushing with getting cash and time limits chase them they nearly always fail...
But anyway good luck.

1. if you hit a downswing - don't stress too much about it (don't try to recover the losses by risking more than you should)
2. maybe try PLO
3. say hi to Fidel Smile
