2nd part of my Grinding it UP Challenge!

Hey Guys, 

at first i wanna say sorry for maybe not the best english you have ever read :) 

here is my first review of my grinding it up Challenge. I now have 8k hands into it. 

After the first upswing it was a huge downswing for 2k hands where i lost about 13 stacks in 2k hands. After this i saw my position game was not that good so i focused on narrow the gap between VP and PFR. Also i focused on not check calling too much :) thats the main problem in my game just want to know what hes playing and calling it down with middle pair and smaller pockets :(

as you see here:

during that downswing it was like you seen here with that AJ hand that they always had some redraws to come and they obv hit. 

So but after all i stopped that downswing by focusing more on not calling too much especially against the Loose aggressiv guys. 

So here we have the summary after 10 days of playing: 

NL2$ Zoom (playing only for summer challenge) +1.10$ 29 hands

NL2$ +9.42$ 8096hands 

NL2€ -3.91$ (-2.93€) 222 hands

Bankroll is up to 41.06$ so its +6.61$ overall

 

Here is the link to the Challenge i created where i add the New Limits im playing and updating like every 2 days so you can see where i stand.

I try to update and reviewing sessions and important hands every sunday so that i can focuse on playing during the week. 

I will definitely recommend the Grinding it Up Challenge from xflixx and all the video stuff from him on youtube.
