    Hey guyz,

    let me introduce myself shortly. My name is Tomas, I am 22 years old and I am from Czech republic. I am studying economy on college.I have been playing poker since 2009. I was strugling on limits nl50-nl200 for a long time. Last year I discovered BPC and I bought double your 6-max winrate, since that my game has improved and I was beating nl100-nl200 I became indepedent on my parents and I could make living just by playing poker. I usually made something around 1500-3000 euro per month. In our country average sallary is 1000 euro and almost no 21 years old man has even the average salary. So when I was making twice or three times of the average salary, I was feeling like a god. But my attitude wasn´t very good, I didn´t play as much as I should, I didn´t do too much work out of the table and Inevitably I pay for it. It started in May when I broke my computer by accident and in the same time I have to pay for reparing my car. At the same time I started losing huge and I had also some outcome during holiday. During few months I have dropped down from Nl200 on nl20. My girlfriend also broke up with me during holiday and I also owe some money to my mother for a car, because I wasn´t able pay it all at once. So during few months I felt to debt, had no money and no girlfriend. I played poker to get out of it, but I wasn´t getting anywhere. I was super frustrated, I was thinking about quitting and starting some business but even that I have read lots of books, I haven´t got any idea what to start.

    I wrote to Gordon, desperately asking him, if there is something like coaching for profits. And he actually responded well. I fullfilled application and he wrote me that he is going to take me, but because I have  small bankroll (at this time 400euro) I cannot make safe deposit which is some cash you send to Gordon and in case you don´t do what you agreed on you are going to lose this safe deposit. But because I don´t have a bankrol to make some kind of a safe deposit I have to prove him that I mean it seriously by playing 100k hands in 3 weeks or 150k hands in 4 weeks.

    I feel this is my only chance how to get back on in my life and I want to make use of it. I also made a promise that I stop drinking, because if I have to get 100k hands in 3 weeeks done and there is no space for hangover. And even when I am in program I am not going to drink because I will still have to play a lot. I realize that drinking keeps me out of my path a lot. I have always told to myself tonight I am going to drink just a little bit but always end up drunk as shit. The next day I am not capable of doing anything and usually the second day I am still to lazy to do work and I have to slightly rebuild my habbit of working during the week, but once I get to used to work (not just poker) for a whole day there is another party coming and the whole process repeats again and again. I realize that alcohol is one of my worst enemy. I don´t want to quit partying, I like parties, but you can also party without alcohol. There are people who can drink whole night and next day they wake up a do what they need to do, but that´s not my case.

    I bought during holiday book “You are your own gym” It is from former coach of millitary US special. it is basically how to work-out just with using your body. It is pretty awesome. Here is his page. https://www.marklauren.com/ I started the program during holiday but I didn´t work-out as often as I should, I didn´t eat as much as I should and the drinking didn´t help to much too. Now I have already started taking program more seriously and I am going to continue. I have also started read and watch vieos stuffs about women, their psychology, how to be more attractive, how to be more confident around them and this kind of stuff. far example if you write “Real social dynamics” to youtube, they have great things not just about women, but also about motivation and life in general. I have a deal with friend of mine to go every weekend to bars to get to know new girls because it is important area in life of every man. I want to be surrounded by woman.

    I also find this guy. https://fluent-forever.com/ he teaches how to learn any language quickly and efficiently. If you guys want to learn new language funnier and quicker way, he is the right guy. Here is the article about him and his method http://fourhourworkweek.com/2014/07/16/how-to-learn-any-language-in-record-time-and-never-forget-it/. I bought his book and started learning Spanish and Also started blog with translations of his articles to my native language(Czech) so other people could make use of it.

    I feel that even I am not in very good situation in my life, it could be the best thing that happen to me and I am going to become better version of me everyday. I just need to do steps that pushing me up everyday a stop doing things that pushing me down. 

    I am going to start 100k goal tomorow. I made the promise I am going to make it, but now I feel little bit scared because I would be ashamed of myself if I didn´t make it not just infront of myself but Now also infront of you guys. But it is also bigger motivation to make it happen.

    I have got lots of thinks to do. Play poker, have fun with women, learn Spanish, write journal here on BPC and write articles on blog.

    If you read it down here, thanks for reading. I will keep this as my journal so stay in touch.

    Hey man. Good luck. 

    I am in the same situation as you and i am waiting for Gordon’s sign now. I finished the challenge of 100k hands 2 days ago (sunday), but no sign yet from BPC.  I didnt even receive anymore normal newsletters from BPC so i hope everything is all right. As a matter of fact is anyone else in my situation? Do you at least get any lately newsletters from BPC or is just me?

    I wish you the best luck and hope you succeed in what u proposed yourself.

    Thank you man.:) 

    I don´t get newsletters so I don´t know. Did you write him e-mail after you made that 100k hands? It is possible he is off for few days. I wouldn´t panic if Gordon promises something, he is going to make it.:)

    Good luck man I will be watching your blog to see if there are some news.:)

    DAY 1I started play on Triobet poker NL20. I was little bit afraid there is not going to be good traffic and I will have to play  more limits. After half an hour I get used to the software. I am used to play 5-6 tables but I played 6-8 tables today to make 5k hands in time. I expected 5k hands took me 10 hours but actually you have little time to decided on Triobet so hands are played pretty fast and it took me only 7:45 to make 5k hands. 

    Even I have positive green line I am not satisfied (that´s why I want to be part of coaching for profits) with my game, mainly with my redline. It looks terrible.Tomorow goal is same as today. Play 5k hands on 6-8 tables.

    Its a good start man. I did my hands on Betsson Poker…decent traffic at 6 max. In order to do my hands i needed at least 10 tables to get 5000 hands in under 8 ours. With 12 tables it was better but my game was awful, reaally bad. I ignored a bit the quality and focused only on quantity for those 21 days. I finished almost BE thanks to the bonus and, btw, great rakeback from bettson poker. I was good with that knowing how bad i played and how variance sometimes destroyed my game and mood.

     

    Good luck .

    Hi guys,

    I will also try to make 100K hands in 21 days, and while I seen your posts I joust want to ask you something.

    Is it on your oppinion better to open two accounts on two sites, and play the best possible given tables, or is it better to play only on one site and maximize rakeback/promos?

    I attend to play on Betsafe and Betsson, combining bolth sites and tableselect a bit…

    Regards.

    HappyCatz – Yeah I also focus more on quantity than quality. The hands are played pretty quick on Triobet so I needed only 6-8 tables to make it under 8 hours. I play on 6 tables fine but once I start play on 7 or 8 I have got no idea about the flow on tables and my game´s not best. Btw any news from Gordon?

    Zooja – I would definetly maximize rakeback/promos. On microstakes you find lots of fishes, so I don´t think there is any need to play on more sites.:) Good luck man, when do you started?

    Day 2 

    I am starting getting pretty comfortable playing 8 tables. I made few missclicks and once I folded AA pf, because I didn´t make action in time. Otherwise today I am quite satisfied. 

    I also did some work out on legs today from the book “You are your own gym”. I am pretty sattisfied with today. Now I am going to pub a make some human contact with friends of mine.:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zD-3j2g9w9U  I do this exercise everymorning and before any work-out it is pretty awesome how to boost your energy. Elliot Hustle is awesome guy. He´s got over 1.000.000 subscribe on youtube.com He has got great things for motivation, work-out and life in general. If you don´t have energy after morning or during day try this every morning, I always feel awesome after this.:)

    Thx for your answer. I’ll start next week – have to organize some RL issues to maximize volume over next weeks (hopefully months)…

    I’ll listen to your advice and start on one site, play for few days and see how it goes.  I will also start my own blog during this weekend, so you are welcome to stop by and say hay. 😉

    Hey Guys.

    @EasyBPC – certainly on one site only and i can tell i would choose Betsson.  in 100k hands played at 2nl-4nl like 95% and only 10% at 10nl, i managed to get 50 euro from my bonus and 50 euro from rakeback. Thats very good for just playing 2-4nl.  You wont find enough tables between 10 and 13 but after that there are a lot of tables even if it means that you start them

    @maestro. Yes Maestro i got my next step today over email. Lots of work to be done so do your challenge. Look like people mean business here on BPC. That means – so must we!

    PS – nice session btw.

    EasyBPC – Yeah man first organize your issue and than you will have enough time to play. I will be definetly checking your blog. Good luck man.:)

    happycatz – Great to hear it man. Good luck with it. I am not seeing any news in your blog, I would like to know more.:)

     

    Otherwise – Yesterday after session I went pub see my friends, was around 1 a.m. so everybody was in a good mood. I started talking with one of first year college girl which I knew she had crush on me but had a boyfriend. After small talk she told, she broke up with his boyfriend and when we got back to dorm, she went to my room and after massages and stuff, we had sex. But after lying satisfied in bed I am looking down and see than condom bursted. She don´t take pills, so in the morning we had to go to pharmacy bought “Postinor”(pills the girl take after accident to not get pregnant). It happen to me first time I havent had sex with condom for a few moths (ex takes pills), so I don´t know, if I put it on bad or it was a bad condom. I am now a bit afraid that it´s going to happen again. Has it ever happened to some of you?Today session was pretty good. To the end of the session I was getting angry, I had headache from playing a stomachace because I probably didn´t give him enough food. Even I was eating a lot I was still hungry. It is kind of interesting that even I didn´t do any phisical exercise I needed to eat a lot. Do any of you guys see on yourself than when you play a lot, you also need to eat much more?Tomorow I am going to local pubs and disco with friend of mine do some “night game” It will be first time I will be completely sobber. I am pretty excited about getting to know some new girls.  I really like this man, lots of great stuff he´s talking about help me a lot. In this video he talks how to beat all your insecurities.

    DAY 4

    Session was pretty good but I am not sattisfied with my redline.  I also got super angry today  because I 4bet AA and then poped up window in client that I have to write code to know If I am really human. I had 300 seconds on it but I kind of panicked and didn´t realize 300 seconds is hell of a time. I wrote the code and then saw that oponent shoved and I timed-out. I was thinking about that for another two hours and I was really angry on the poker site. So if it happens to you don´t panick, play your hands, you´ve got 5 minutes on it.

    I watched 5 part documentary about “ISIS”. It is really terrible. It reminds fascist Germany. People are talked to what to wear, what to do, children are brainwashed in camps and everybody who doesn´t agree with them or do something they don´t like is enemy of ISIS and goes to jail or being executed. I was feeling really bad after I saw this and realize how greatful I am that I live where I live and my problems are really funny compare to them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsCZzpmbEcs

    Hello

    I played only one session today today, because I should have had according to hem 4,5 buyins more on my accout, than I have. I tried to write to support if there is a mistake on their site, but they are telling me that mistake has to be on my side. I don´t know I was really angry about it today. I send them another e-mail so I will see what they respond. Does it ever happen to you that you had less money on your account that you were supposed to?

Anyway i think i will start a new blog with more info (personal too, like you share 🙂 ), and maybe some hands and strategies. Trying to just do the quantity i ignored analyazing my game. So i think i will start a new blog for all these reasons. I will let you know as soon as i am through everything.
