In the last few days I've just been getting prepared for the 50k hand challenge. I've been away from online for some time now and I've been playing plo when I've been playing online.
I'm playing in the $1000 bracket and I'm planning on getting in the full 50k hands, this means I can't be too aggressive with bankroll management.
Game selection: It happens that I am much much better at nl cash than plo cash and I don't have the roll to play FL games that are worth playing so it means that I'm going to be playing nl cash for the challenge. I think my biggest edge for the roll here will be deepstacked nl cash, so that will be the game of choice for the beginning.
Roll management: first session at .1/.25 deep or .25/.5 @ 100bb and will play this for a bit till I feel comfortable with deep nl online again. From then I think 20deep full buyins will be my roll management with aggressive shots and moving down quickly after losses.
Study: Going to be putting in a post session analysis every session or 2 and going to work on the topics covered in Tendlers "Mental game of poker" book. This means being disciplined about pre session routine and post session routine and keeping a eye out for tilt at all times.
I'll try putting in a session tonight sometime so will post up the results a bit later!
