PokerStars Power Up: A Pioneers Account, pt. 8
It's been a while!
It’s been close to 2 months since the last blog post and in that time a lot of new things have occured. Firstly, we kicked off the Power Up community challenge back on the 1st of May in which all players were challenged to go from $30 -> $1k by playing Power Up games. We already have 1 confirmed finisher and another that has claimed to have completed, but we are waiting on the PokerStars audit. Congratulations to them (I hope the special discord status feels nice all the way up there above those regular plebs :) )
I’m currently sitting at around $300 in that challenge, as you can see in my rather swingy graph below. On the very first day I managed to go from 30 all the way to 300, but since that it’s been a hard grind. I’m still on fairly good pace though and I hope to finish within my target of 1.7k games.
To create this graph I requested an excel spreadsheet of all the tournament summaries played from 1st of May. After filtering for Power Up only, I created a graph using the profit from there.
The reason volume has been low since that first day is that I’ve moved house from Slovenia over to Brighton, UK. Unfortunately it was a long, drawn out and stressful process. I’ve moved a lot of times in the past 10 years but this one takes the cake in being the most stressful.
After being in limbo for about 3 weeks we finally moved in but had a bunch of problems getting internet, (we’ve managed to move into a listed building and therefore the internet people couldn't install whatever they needed) so I’ve had to resort to mobile internet in the meantime.
The past few days I’ve been finally doing some streaming over on OP-Poker twitch stream with my own setup. It’s been a lot of fun so far and I want to thank all the regular viewers on that channel for tuning in to watch my sessions as well as Nicks, it means a lot.
Something is brewing..... Our #twitchpoker stream is about to get much more action! Who could be the new person behind the camera? 👤 All will be revealed SOON 😎 #pokerstars #pokerstarspowerup #poweruppoker #poker #pokerstrategy #pokerstreamer #pokerstream #twitchgamer #twitchguy #Twitchpoker #Twitch #twitchtv #twitchtvstreamer #twitchstreamer #twitchgamer #twitcher, #twitchstream #streamer #poker #pokertournament #instapoker #pokerinsta #gamer #onlinepoker #pokerplayer #pokerface #pokergame #goals #motivation
For the next 2 weeks I have about 30gb of data from which to stream (which is about 15? ish hours,) and after that I should finally have some internet installed in the house which I am really looking forward to :)
I think I am going to set a goal to complete the Power Up challenge of 30 -> $1k by 1st of September. Fingers crossed!
See you at the tables!
