GTO gardening (and some poker)

GTO gardening (and some poker)


Our Bankroll Challengers are crushing MTTs, catching one outers and (don’t pretend you are not interested) doing some impressive gardening.

15 years ago we might have been reporting on crazy parties or weight lifting prop bets as our Bankroll Challengers’ extra curricular activities…but we as a community we are maturing. 

This may not be of interest to you professional grinder cool kids, but our middle aged editor was excited by the blog of Clease who is destressing from poker with some GTO gardening – pics included:

Late reg BarryCarter was very excited about this

You raise a limp with KK and it turns out they had Aces. Worse yet a third player is all-in with AK. Only a one outer can save Talisker74 now….did he get it?

ANOTHER tournament win for mariussica88 this week. Keep it up champ, you’ve got this.

Finally, good luck to our previous Bankroll Challenge winners ghaleon ($30,000 new goal) and naDanje ($5,000 new goal), both of whom have already got back on the grind and started new challenges.

What is the Bankroll Challenge?

Build your Bankroll - reach a goal!

In the Bankroll Challenge we encourage our members to get better by blogging about their poker journey and setting some ambitious goals. 

Our members found that having a blog kept them accountable to their goals and it’s a great way to help them get to know their fellow PokerStrategists. As the saying goes ‘what gets measured, gets managed’ and simply having a blog keeps you on your A-Game. 

To help you on your journey and with a little bit of luck you can win $100 that we will raffle once a month among our active bloggers, regardless of where they play, accompanied by a special badge for their forum avatar for anyone succeeding in their first Bankroll Challenge.
