Just finished the 30k hands grind on party, kept daily totals and omg, it is fairly bad viewing.
I have never been a losing player at any of the games I play (including blackjack back in the day, slots and roulette), due to the way I use bonus' and things to add value, but I am confidently saying I absolutely lost this challenge and it was entirely my fault.

The figures:
Start $150 (that was built from zero from free spins/brm games etc).
Deposited $199 (two deposits)
Total BR: $349

Challenge ended
BR left: $7.22
Bonus gained: $150
Total BR: $157.22

Total losses on challenge: -$234.60
Total losses on bankroll: -$191.78

Now, I have never gone a calendar year making a loss on any site but on party poker I am £160 GBP down. (but have approx. £110 on site).

That gives me 4.5 months to make back approx. $200 from MTT's again.

I will keep post updated, hopefully every day but more than likely every couple of days. I will play pretty much only MTT's but will also make use of free bets and free spins etc.

I will play as many games from the bootcamp tab as possible, and will also be playing all of pokerfest mini.

I will make the money back, the question is how quickly, because I will also be back to playing some mtt's on 888, my usual DYM games on sky + I need to crack on and earn some coins back on FT/Stars so I can keep my hand in the deal, as well as my usual sports betting.

I hope a few of you will follow my thread.

This was a significant loss on a challenge however you still have a good BR. and your goal of winning $200.00 in a 4.5 months i won't say will be easy but i believe that with your poker play i am pretty sure that you will do it.

I wish you a lot of luck and not to many loss with your A K. Big Smile Big Smile

Downswings happen, unfortunately it's the reality of poker. But you're lucky you're still way up in your overall winnings Blink

Keep grinding, luck will come your way soon enough... MTTs are all about volume, downswings are very common even for the best players.

Thank you I would love that, I have probably forgotten all you told me before because I didn't write it down. I will next time.

Didn't know you were on a break, what happened?

Yeah it was a killer of a loss, I am quite annoyed with myself.

Oh well, best to learn from it, move on and make profit where I know I can.

I would hope to win that back in a month just playing one site, but playing several makes it a bit tougher.

Thanks.
To be clear though, this was cash games and it wasn't a downswing. Even with some horrific beats, I know I sucked and deserved to lose.

It wasn't a downswing, it was me not being good enough.

Back now to doing what I do best.

I will put quite a few hands up here for people to pull apart. I was looking for the hand that knocked me out of the PP BRM freeroll, but cant find it and PP don't make it easy to find hands these days.

G'day mate

I was truly saddened when I read your original post.
I truly understand how you feel.
I too have been on a losing streak over the last 3 months and my total bankroll is currently down by a little over - $350... However when one considers I was down almost - $1000 a year ago then I am happy to have clawed my way upward up out of a deep hole.

You CAN do it as well. I know you have the skills to do well.
You have already acknowledged the Mtt's are your strength, so that is where you know you need to go.
Wishing you all the very best.
You CAN do it!
be cool

Ronin Cool

Hi kweenee, thank you for this honest insight of you playing the "Summer of Grind" promotion. I really haven't found the time to play it and when I had the time my bankroll was low. I can't blame you for not making profit, since it is really hard over there, my personal experience is that on the PS software it is more easy due to a wider audience, on the PP software I get so much three bets when I try to steal the blinds, so I was folding my bluffs all the time. People seem more sharky or crazy, i dont know. Playing good hands only, what works very fine, doesn't work in the FastForward in partypoker. it is hard and no wonder you loose a little.

Interesting post IQA. I think the important thing is that you have already identified the issue. I think you were focussed on achieving the target of the amount of hands rather than on playing truly effective poker. Cash is different to MTT, so in those upcoming MTT's, focus on your play rather than making up your losses. Remember though....even the great players bust out of tourneys, but they bust out trying to win...and occasionally they win big!

By reading the title, i thought you won big time and you are throwing a party Smile
which isnt the case.
Since you feel and know that you can get that money back then its not a big problem i guess.
Just a step back in time. Good luck getting it back with interest Smile

Hehe

I tell the children in my class when they make mistakes and get things wrong they were learning.

So I just had a month of learning.

@damosk I think you hit the nail on the head, all I was tracking was start/finish totals and amount of hands on each table, big mistake.

------------
Didnt play MTT last night because of the kid being up all night the night before so was shattered.

Did play a couple of DYM's (also my game).

Start: $157.22
Finish: $158.68
Profit: $1.46
Total profit: $1.46
Total on pre-challenge BR: -$190.32

Good luck to you on your venture and i hope that you can at least get back to your original Bankroll. You seem to be a very level headed player and you have identified what you have done wrong which is a very good thing. Good luck again

Stop chasing the losses, account it as 'money gone out the window' and do a tabula rasa for the rest of the year on PP.
At least this is what I'd do but I am not much of a grinder anyway.

Second that.

Just skip the 'Total on pre-challenge' line, that doesn't mean anything other than an unnecessary distraction. If you need a baseline, then maybe use 'total career winnings', which I imagine is a far greater positive number. Feel good about that!

Total career winnings is about $40000 but haven't got exact figures

------------
Bit of a weird afternoon. Played 6 mtt's, was deep in two of them. But got outdrawn at crucial times and ended up busting in 5.
Still in one but very SS, then will take a break before this evening.
Only -$5 because buyins cheap, but that's the life of a mtt'er.

That is a really impressive number icequeen. Would have never guessed that your winnings are
that high. Not even close.
The big question here is how long is your career ? Smile
So that loss of yours cant even considered a step back.
Congratulations, with even more winnings in the future.
