      Background –
      Hey guys I am a teenage student and i use to play on pokerstars a year back but stopped after cashing out a huge tournament win (545$,yes it is huge for me :P) I havnt played poker since then.

      How the challenge started-
      Just a week back i opened stars to see if any poker pros are playing and i happened to open the freeroll section by mistake.There was a 1000$ grntd freeroll ,buy in was 20fpp ,i had around 120fpp. I ran deep in the tournament winning just over a dollar and thats how it all started.

      How I went about it –
      with that 1$ i played .01-.02 cash games and played until i reached around 5 $.

      I got bored with cash games pretty soon 😛
      I prefer sngs/tourneys over cash.
      Then started with 0.50$ turbo 45man sngs.
      I have been playing those for a week now…the first first prize is 6.30$.
      Hence,my br after a week –


      1)To reach 100$ and start playing 1.50$ stt

      2)Eventually moving up the ladder and reaching my goal of 1000$ .

      I dont have a certain date to complete this challenge but sooner the better

      So ,here my graph for around 400 games only 17 1.50$ 45 in it though.
      I could mix the 1.50$ 45 as i had won some 97$ in a private freeroll…
      Went through a sick downswing 40 bis around . Took my time cover it but back to the badbeats again lol
      anyways ,so my bankroll is 169 $
      ITM % – 35%
      no of games-394 (but hm is missing few of my games)
      This is very slow…my goal to play live tournaments in goa seems very far for now.
      anyways, thanx guys 🙂
