Back in 2006 I learned and started to play poker! I played mostly 1$ SnG's at Bwin and I managed to win like 1$/hour it was my first year inUni and I thought well to win something like that I would be better just getting a real job and I kind of just quit!
In june 2011 I heard the story( a fake one now I know) about a portuguese(Im from portugal as well) kid that went from 30$ to 1/2 millions in like a year or 2, a fact from his alleged story motivated me strongly to start playing poker again because he said at first he was winning like 1$/hour and I thought well I was making that so perhaps I can get to millions as well!
First of all I'm not really disapointed to know that the story was fake first because on the first month I couldn't make 3k like he said he did!!! And I was bashing my head thinking if he only played cash how the heck was this possible!! Second and most important of all because now I can become the reall portuguese poker prodigy though I like the word genius more eheh
With that being said what I want to know is going from Deuce to Ace is really possible and what does it take?
I'm in Uni and I have a part-time job as I'm slightly degen I can still put 20-30k hands per month if I have to, I don't want to rush things just want to do it right!
But I mean starting with 50$ and grinding your way to the micros and up the ladder if I take my time studying, analysing sessions, reading articles watching videos playing, not going crazy with my bankroll and knowing when to quit can it be done?
Is it really possible to go from 50$ to 2M$ in like 2.5years? and if so what would be the most important things to achive it? mental strenght, organization, game skill, learning ability, patience, motivation or would you simply had to be a genious?
I intend to play mostly 6max cash all the way and later on try to specialize in NLHU and maybe PLO(mostly cause the action is there right now)!
Is it better to go for SNG's MTT's? or the path(by path I mean the games[NLHE/PLO/etc] and where you'll play them[cash/sng's/HU/MTT's] you take isn't that of a big weight on the balance?
My road from deuce to ace is just starting any guidelines would be apreciated!
