So, here is how it will go. I am going to play 2 MTTs (at least) EVERY DAY and Im going to play them separate. Im going to play buy ins anywhere from 3-30$. Im planing to sum buy ins to be between 500 and 1000$. Along with that I am going to play SNGs which is not included in this challenge but it is main reason for doing this because I want to play big volume next month and I guess this will provide me good 4-5 hours minimum of play daily and put me in place to gain platinum star and be back on track for supernova. Guess i'm going to post my SNG and VIP status progress here from time to time too.

Good luck and everything but what really is the challenge here?
The sheer volume or the short term profitability?
We all know you could do well on both.

OK. Time for first update.
I played today Big 3,3$ and 11$ superknockout.

In Big3,3 I finished 308th out of 2633 and cashed 5.52$ and busto with this hand http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13744436_98A...

In 11$ SKO finished in 115th out of 3345 people and cashed 24,71$ and had 5 bounties for 23,75$
There I busted with this one http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13758134_60F...
Prior to that I had this hand http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13757972_E1A... then managed to get back.

Here is one very interesting hand from that tourney. It happened against same guy as AK hand.
http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13757771_58D...
What do you think about that shove? He left himself with 6 bb and I thought it could worth it.

However, too bad I didnt make even deeper run, especially in sko one. That was so close. If I won that all in I would have almost 40 blinds and very nice opportunity to get that final table.
This way I'm up 39 ,68$ and even better first two tourneys in challenge-both cashed

Challenge is to make myself play every day for entire month. I have bad working habits and I think I have never played even one week in row. And also side challenge is to finally get to platinum star. Also I want to reactivate on forum and post every day.

Hello Jovicakalj

Congrats on your results so far and glad to see that your challenge is on the right path wish is the winning one Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I trully believe that you will be successful on your endeavor based on two points :

First -you are a hell of a poker player Worship Worship
Second-you acknowledge a flaw on your attitude(having bad work habits)

So for that two reasons you will win

LOL! Soon as I star challenging myself be sure something will go wrong! My internet died for 2 days, guy from internet company fixed it an hour ago Sad Sad Sad At April 1st I managed to play only 16,50$ BIG and did not cash in it. Will continue with my challenge tomorrow and till April 10 will play 3 tourneys a day to compensate for missing time.

About your internet connection issues there is an old saying that fits perfectly imho "luck is blind but bad luck sees us well" Tongue


About busting hand ... well standard shove with less than 10BB there. Well played Thumbs Up

One big win is only what you need to get back. Not that you have missed anything so far.
Besides the fact that you are a bit behind in your schedule.

Maybe next time you put yourself a goal, keep it a secret, trying not to jinx it Smile

Yeah, internet downtimes are literally my death if I am at home when it's happening. The one thing worse than that is trying to talk sense into your ISP's support/callcenter/helpdesk girl about the actual problem.

Played 3 tourneys yesterday. 5,5 rebuy (invested 10,5$ forgot to make add on Sad ) and busted 82nd (72 payed). Had these key hands http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13809715_B96...
Next one I called because of pot odds, not sure but I think it must be fine. I know Im majority of times behind or fliping but my hand have around 40% equity against his top range (which was stronger then hand he acctually had. And with those pot odds I decided to call. If someone wants we could definitely go in depths of that hand. http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13809769_D7F...
And I busted with this one, If that other guy folded I would probably fold myself, but it just seemed as good spot to try to take down that pot. Now when I look at it Its probably loose...
http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13810119_581...

Then I played 5,4$ knockout and got one knockout for 1$, no cash, busto with this one http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13811320_3D8...

And last one was really close. 11$ 4k gtd. Busted 33rd. I cashed it for 25$. If I won this one I would be really close to get final table. http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hands/Boom/13815095_429...

------------
Current profit/loss: +22.28$

Following your challenge Jovica, good luck.

BTW, you of all people should know that when you get dealt AA by PokerStars, it means their "Random Number Generator" has selected you for a bad beat. Wake up.

When you are dealing with AA it simply means you have a drinking problem, am I right? Big Smile BTW all three of those hands you boomed are pretty standard, even the 'magic river' one, I am spending less and less time playing MTT nowadays but all three happened with me plenty times even on a single day when I was more active.
