G'day mates

Just finished my 3rd session today and it was a nightmare right from the start.
I had my pocket Aces broke twice.
Once my Aces were broke by an Ace 2 when he hit a 2 on the flop and then one the river.
Then I had my pocket Ace broke by pocket Aces when 4 spades hit the board and of course I did not have the damned ace of spades.
I just kept losing hand after hand for 3 hours on 4 tables.
It is a miracle I did not lose even more of my bankroll.

Started with $160.59 and finished with $144.87

Current bankroll is ... $144.87

Well I just played my 4th session of the day and I have rebuilt my bankroll back up to $153.00.
I would have like to played more but there just is not enough players to even fill a table.

bad session it seems , having your aces cracked
but still going on a profit
ups and downs happen in poker
you just need the big jump , a great session where you double your bankroll
are you focusing on cash games , because maybe give the small buy-in tournaments a try
or maybe sit and go
anyway keep us updated , if this challenge last 2 years , this thread gonna be the one with the most posts in bankrollmob Big Smile
good luck in this amazing journey

Well it is day 5 of the Ascension Challenge at I was stupid and fell over a cliff.
My bankroll took a $125 hit during a 3 hour long session.
The tumble left me tilting on the side of the mountain about to fall to my death below.
Luckily I was clinging to a ledge and was able to hang there to catch my breath.
I took a break got my head right again and took it out of my a$$.
I had to look honestly at my new bankroll of $57.18 Aww crap!
I took a break four an hour and have rebuilt my bankroll back up to just $74.84
it is now day 6 of the challenge and my 1st session allowed me to claw my way back up to my new current level of Dollar 74.84
I have to just grind it out again to rebuild and set aside all worries about trying to build the amount fast. I need to concentrate of just having good profitable small sessions and stop thinking about making large cash gains.
I was trying to make to much to fast and moved up to NL50 without the bankroll to be there and it has cost me dearly.
NO more chasing fast cash! Just slow and steady upward grinding again is what I MUST do.

The current bankroll is now... Dollar 74.84 Aww crap!

will update later in the day after a session of two.

Like I said 2 times, and I will say third time now.... Main mistake in playing poker is BANKROLL MENAGMENT!!! you must grind if you want to reach your goal... as you said you have 2 year you need to complete your challange, than why r you trying to complete it in 1 month??? Just trust me proper bankroll menagment rule!!!

Yeah, I agree. If you are decided that you've got two years for this challenge then why are you trying to complete it within two weeks?
Again. Stay on the level where your are the most comfortable with your skillset. Make shorter sessions. Scout your tables better. Just common sense Ronin, just common sense. You are in no hurry, and you don't need to prove yourself to us. Keep it low, keep it steady.

This is a real shame, you were doing well. Maybe your initial profits were outside proper bankroll management as well? In that case you are just gambling, and the results are meaningless.

You need to define which levels you'll play with which bankroll, and when you will move up, and when you move down again, after a downswing, and stick to it.

The way you are playing now, you'll either bust out soon, or reach your goal well within 2 years (but that will require a large amount of luck).

I wish you the best of bankroll management (normally I'd wish you the best of luck, but this seems more appropriate)!

That was a huge mistake you did, raising your limits.
Like a rookie that hasnt played ever poker before in his life Smile
As noted above bankroll management is a must.
Good thing you still have the money you started with. Just dont repeat the same
mistake and good luck.

Yes this challenge is still on.
No I have not blown through all my money.
Just have been on a short break dealing with real life issues.
Hope to play more poker tomorrow.

It has been a few days since I have been able to play any poker.
I might be able to get in a short 1 hour long session later today.
Will definately be able to play over the weekend.
So the challenge will be back on tomorrow at the latest.
I will update you as soon as I play another session.

I hope that this small break of your has charged you positively and you are ready to hit the tables with the same results, you had when you started it.
And dont forget the key factor of course which is bankroll management Smile. Good luck.

Well it has been 4 days since I have been able to play any poker.
Today is the 18th so after five days of resting on the side of this cliff face.
I shall once again begin climbing the poker money mountain.
I will be playing multiple tables of NL2. (0.01/0.02 NL Texas Holdem)
It is going to be a long climb to reclaim my former level but proper bankroll management demands I must play at the lowest level at this time.

Today's starting bankroll is ... Dollar 74.84

Will update after my session.

I just finished grinding out a 2 hour long poker session.
I played on 10 tables for a short time but then dropped it back to just 8 tables.
Personally I seem to prefer only playing on 4 tables at a time, it is a nice relaxed pace and I can really watch the action on all 4 of my tables easily.
I also do not seem to get mentally tired as fast so I can play longer and more sessions each day.
So from now on I have decided to only play 4 tables maximum at one time.

I played so many tables for two reasons.

1. I know that I would be able to handle the pace.
2. I wanted to increase my odds of building up my bankroll to a point where I could move up in stakes and still be inside proper bankroll management.

I started with a bankroll of $74.84 US$

My new current bankroll is ... Dollar 101.95 US$

Going to take a rest for an hour or two before playing another session.

be cool

So you are back on track with good results. And the profit is a very good one from one session.
Just dont get carried away again and make your last mistake.
There is no need playing in higher limits, since you are doing well on this one with a good,
and most important, steady profit.

Just finished my 2nd session today and it is another positive finish. Big Smile
Started with $101.95 and finished with $118.67
I now have the bankroll to play NL4 and to take a 2 table shot at NL10.
I might be able to play one more session today as well.
It would be great to finish the day above $125.

Current bankroll is ... $118.67

Yeah, keep on grindin' out Ronin but you yet again starting to carry away with the limits. I am in no way to give out advices to you but you are not really in need to change pace every week or so - u could take your time, nobody wants you to rush this.
