Goin' Fer It In 2017 - The Online Edition

Posted 2 weeks ago

Having successfully completed my last journey - $5k Challenge I decided to do things a little differently this year and have 2 challenges/journey's running simultaneously. One for online poker and one for live poker. Both will be based around tournaments.

This will be the online challenge log, the live challenge is HERE

Once I've completed all the free content on the site, I will be joining Tournament Poker Edge, which I think will benefit both of these challenges. Online poker has been taking a back seat recently as I've been playing live more but will be aiming to play 2 full schedules of online tournaments a week. Going forward I may look at selling action weekly once I have a regular schedule set-up.

Across both challenges I will be running an overarching 12 month challenge, as well as 6x 2-monthly challenges. So the first for both journeys will be until the end of February.

The main sites I'll be playing on are Pokerstars, Party Poker and TonyBet.

Online 12 Month Challenge
- Exceed $10k in Cashes
- Cash for more than $2k in one tournament
- Keep a log of ALL profit and losses every time I play
- Complete the Tournament Poker Edge "University"
- Increase my average buy-in


Jan 6th - Feb 28th Monthly Challenge
- Complete all the free content on Tournament Poker Edge
- Win 1 Open Face Chinese tournament on TonyBet
- Post hands weekly on here and on the Facebook Hand Review Group
- Increase Pocket 5's Party Poker cashes to over $3k

In the case that I qualify online for a live event, I will top-up the online balance with the amount it cost to qualify.

I hope it doesn't get too confusing running both journeys at the same time but we should be good! I will be posting hands, recording sessions, will be honest with myself and with you guys, asking for help. I will also screenshot every cash, and also log the profit/loss after every session

So we started off in earnest with just a couple of comp's on TonyBet tonight.

€1 Daily Run It Twice = No Cash
€1 OFC Micro Turbo = No Cash
€3 OFC "Trike" Turbo = 3rd - €10

Total Buy-Ins = €5
Total Cashes = €10
Profit/Loss = +€5

So cashes of €10 is $10.53, and the trusted thermometer is back!

Hey dude GL in challenges. If you need to build roll, i recommend freezout tournaments on microgaming, they have nice slow tournaments with buy ins 5 and 10 e and blind level 15 min. also their rebuy slow tournaments are good, i usually only buy in and addon, and for buy in and addon you get 90 or 100 bb

Thanks @kuca86 , I've got accounts at a few Microgaming sites so will check that out!

Played a few satellites on Party Poker last night whilst playing live. A couple of $0.01 sats lol, a $2.20 and a $1.10 sat. "Won" the $1.10 for a $5.50 satellite seat so a small profit overall.

Going to be playing a schedule tonight on Tonybet, PartyPoker and Pokerstars. Will see how it goes to see if it works well for a regular schedule.

Comps as follows:

TonyBet

1800 - NLHE Daily "Run It Twice" - €1
1800 - OFC Daily Micro Turbo - €1
1830 - OFC "My 1st Trike" - €3
1830 - NLHE Super Knockout - €5

Total TonyBet Buy-ins = €10


Party Poker

1800 - NLHE Flyweight Bounty - $1.10
1800 - NLHE Super Knockout - $11
1900 - 5x $11seat Satellite - $2.20
1900 - NLHE "The Jab" - $5.50
2000 - NLHE Prog Knockout - $5.50
2000 - PLO8 6 Max - $5.50

Total PartyPoker Buy-ins = $30.80


Pokerstars

2000 - Big $2.20 $6k GTD - $2.20
2030 - Bounty Builder - $7.50
2039 - PLO $500 GTD - $2.20
2105 - NLHE 6 Max - $1.10
2110 - NLHE Deep Stacks - $2.20
2130 - Bounty Builder - $2.20

Total Pokerstars Buy-ins = $17.40

Also got a few back up comps to join between 1900 and 2000 depending on how the earlier comps go and will probably late reg a few of the bigger comps.

Will report back later tonight!

One word to describe tonight would be Frustrating!

One of those nights where every call is a bad call, every fold is a bad fold etc

Also came so close to one of my monthly targets which is to win an OFC comp, but came second (again), after a heads-up which lasted over an hour!

Some small changes to the overall schedule, missed off the $7.50 bounty builder on 'Stars due to already having 7 or 8 comps on the go at the time, also just couldn't find the $2.20 PLO so replaced it with a $1.10 version

So buy-ins and cashes for tonight.


TonyBet

1800 - NLHE Daily "Run It Twice" - €1 - No Cash
1800 - OFC Daily Micro Turbo - €1 - No Cash
1830 - OFC "My 1st Trike" - €3 - 2nd for €16.50
1830 - NLHE Super Knockout - €5 - 1 bounty for €2.50

Total Buy-ins = €10
Total Cashes = €19
Profit/Loss = +€9



Party Poker

1800 - NLHE Flyweight Bounty - $1.10 - No Cash
1800 - NLHE Super Knockout - $11 - No Cash
1900 - 5x $11seat Satellite - $2.20 - 7th for $10 (Top 6 got $11 seats)
1900 - NLHE "The Jab" - $5.50 - No Cash
2000 - NLHE Prog Knockout - $5.50 - 2 bounties for $1.88
2000 - PLO8 6 Max - $5.50 - No cash
2200 - NLHE Flyweight - $1.10 - No cash

Total Buy-ins = $31.90
Total Cashes = $11.88
Profit/Loss = -$20.02



Pokerstars

2000 - Big $2.20 $6k GTD - $2.20 - 336th for $5.86
2100 - PLO $400 GTD - $1.10 - No Cash
2105 - NLHE 6 Max - $1.10 - No Cash
2110 - NLHE Deep Stacks - $2.20 - No Cash
2130 - Bounty Builder - $2.20 - No Cash

Total Buy-ins = $8.80
Total Cashes = $5.86
Profit/Loss = -$2.94

--------------------------------

Overall Total Buy-ins = $50.70
Overall Total Cashes = $36.74
Overall Profit/Loss = -$13.96

--------------------------------

Pretty disappointing overall. Not a huge loss but just a frustrating night, but not too bad for the first time playing a full schedule for quite a while. I won't bother exchanging € into $ as it's pretty much the same nowadays

$36+ in cashes is better than $0 though! And added to the previous $10.53 we are on our way!

Think I have another free night tomorrow, so may play just the 4 TonyBet tournaments plus a few satellites on PartyPoker and spend the rest of the time studying and making use of the content on Tournament Poker Edge, with a view to playing a similar schedule on Friday night
