100,946 to be exact...over one hundred times my original buy in.
This past session I sat down to five tables and with 85K in my pocket. Had a horrible mis-click that cost me over $5K. I was in about 1K+ in bets and hit fold on the river instead of raise. I already had a low that would have won 4K+ and the player to my left picked up what would have been my fifth Diamond so I probably would have scooped and it would be closer to a $9K screw up.
But I plowed ahead and played solid starting hands and got some cooperation on the big streets. Made up my mistake and then some. Took down some huge pots and had a head of steam as I passed 80K, 85K, 90K, and when I got to 95K, I thought I should just take a breather but I got involved in a hand in the lower left table. I was three to a low straight flush and getting mad action. I pretty much bet/raised every opportunity I could. Made my low, then a straight, then picked up the flush on the river too to scoop and put me over 100K. Then I immediately sat out of all the tables and folded any hands I was in to lock in the moment.
Not much more to say right now that I didn't say on my $750K post but I can say that it feels good to reach such a big milestone. Sure two orders of magnitude in play money is no double up of real money or anything like that but it is still an accomplishment that takes patience and know-how. I also tuned my approach based on my experiences and from reading up on the subject.
I'm actually at a bit of a crossroads now. I certainly feel like I've learned a lot about managing and building a bankroll but the learning curve seems to have flattened out. I'm not going to pretend that I know everything but I wonder if continuing on with the FTP FCC is going to be the best bang for the buck. I'm anxious to get into some real Cake but just can't get a sponsor for my starter roll yet. I think I will continue on with the FTP FCC for now and see what kind of scaling issues I run into. But right now, I think I'm going to head out and treat myself for breaking through six figures.
