Great news! Bartosz, known as “c0l0” in the BPC community have just finished his 10k CFP contract!
Is very nice that he had some time for a short interview with us!
What is the biggest difference from before to now?
The biggest difference is in my way of thinking. Now I know that the only way to reach my full potential is working hard and having courage. Waiting for the perfect conditions is a way to set myself up for failure.
How do you feel about the time in the program?
It took me a while to finish, but I like to think that I finished all in one month. In the first months I was winning but not much, I even had one losing month. I wasn’t satisfied and I knew I had to change something. So I decided to move to a poker house in Zagreb… I only had about 1,3k in my BR, plus some savings for one month, enough for rent and food. The plane was too expensive, so I went there by bus. After about a 20h ride (2h change in Vienna included), I was in Zagreb, ready to crush, failure was not an option… A little bit over one month later I’m still here but 6k richer. It’s amazing how one small change can affect you and your entire life.
Where do you actually live and how is it to live there?
As I said, I’m living in a poker house in Zagreb, I moved here over one month ago, but haven’t seen the city yet, because we have been playing and studying the whole time (until now! We went out to celebrate). We’ll be here till the end of February, after that I’ll go back to my home town in Poland. But I don’t think I’ll stay there for too long – life is too short and the world is too wonderful to stay in one place for too long.
What are the most important things that you learned?
To work hard, and to have big balls (from Malta)
What is the biggest take away? And what do you think everybody should do in order to succeed?
My advice for everybody is simple: don’t be smarter than the coaches and put in more volume!
Can anybody do it? What does it take to complete the program?
It’s not rocket science, everyone can do it!
How do you like the structure, material?
Gordon’s videos are pure gold! I don’t know how you can sell it so cheap!
What are your plans for the future poker-wise?
Short term goal is to make 10k in one month. It’s only a matter of time. Long term goal is not precise yet, but I want to push myself harder, just to see what I’m capable of (and make a lot of money of course).
How did the BPC Camp in Malta help you to achieve your goal?
Malta was an inspiration for me – meeting so many successful people in such a short period of time was a great experience. And that experience made me believe I can be as good as they are (or even better).
Thank you for your time, Bartosz! I KNOW you’ll continue crushing, soon you’ll get that 10k month! 🙂
