      Thanks :) Honestly,it was my first time listening to his performance and I liked it.I'm very open-minded for any kind of music and it always nice to know that our music spreads around the balkans.We have a lot things in common.

      I'll make my daily update as usual.I won't go through a lot of details,I just wanna summarize the last month.There were a lot of things going around,it was somehow a busy and exhausting month.I had to focus on some non-poker related aspects of my life and try to get the best of it.
      As for poker-I focused mainly on the 15$'s,playing turbos,non-turbos,Ko's,18 man,today I even tried some 6 max and HU games.It was fun.I'll post the graph for the whole month.

      I'm happy with the results,although I'm trying mainly to focus on my game and performance.I had a huge heater at the end,which made this a profitable month.There is still a lot of work to be done,so it's too early for general conclusions.Take care,grinders!

      Attemp to make a joke - failed :tongue:

      I didn't really listened to the song i posted i just saw the styilng of the performer - though i'm open minded about music styles also, this is not really one of my favourites (i wont post here music that i like don't want to hijack your blog, ill put in mine when i finally start one :rolleyes: )

      On topic nice upswing from 650th to 870-ih game!
      How are the knockouts? less infested?
      I like your approach with mixing different formats, i started that as well, hope it can improve my post-flop skills.

      Croatia , Serbia ,Bulgaria go go

      KO's seem to be softer imo,especially during morning and early afternoon hours.There are still some very good regs,but the fish is more likely to spew its chips away because of the bounty prize.The game style is a bit looser in general.I try to avoid playing during the night,because the games become much more reg infested and its hard to almost impossible to table select.Thats the reason I mix the games-18max,turbos,turbo Ko's,reg. speed,whatever is soft at the moment.6max is also softer than 9max for sure.I first noticed that on Ipoker where even the 22$'s 6 max were really soft.I was thinking about switching the format at one moment,but I'll stick mainly to 9max for now.Mixing different games is fun and also a good way to table select ,but I have to adjust my game and that requires some extra skills :P
      For instance,in non-turbos there are a lot more spots postflop,much more steal-re-steal dynamic,ITM and HU skills become really important.In the Ko's I was shocked how loose I got called by fishes so they make it bad for both parties.I had to adjust my ranges there.18man 15$ turbos are still profitable imo,but the percentage of the regs has increased big time.In fact I'm almost sure 18man has greater traffic than 9man nowadays.

      @Gero
      P.s I still liked it :P It was a joke that opened new horizonts for my music taste! I think I'm gonna start grinding on the accordion performance from now on.His smile made my day! :s_biggrin:

      Oh,boy,I'm beat.Big time.I'll make my daily update as usual.I had to get up earlier today and put some volume before I leave the city to spend the afternoon with some hommies into to the wild(nice movie btw).When I got back I wasn't in a mood for grinding at all,but I felt I had to.I managed to round it to 50 SnG's today which is a good enough number.Even a bit more.Ran well,which is also another positive thing to mention.As this month started,all my goals that I set in my first post should get in action.Hopefully,by the end of October I'will have all my tasks completed.
      P.S.> I will start reviewing my hands for today.I hope I'll find something interesting to post.
      Good luck everybody.

      Hey, I'm glad you're reading it :) Yep, software sucks but the fish make up for it tenfold. At least it's worth for me while I get rb via the fdb. At least I think so now :)
      BoP means battle of the planets, a promotion on Stars. Sort of a weekly sng leaderboard.

      Oh,is that it.My bad.Sure I've heard of it,but tbh I'm not quite sure how it works.I'll check after the post.I remeber a long time ago they transfered something 5-6$ BoP bonus to my account,but that's back in the day when I was playing 1$ SnG's :P I didn't get a ticket or a bonus for that week.

      Quick Update
      And now it's time for today's summary.Well...I guess all I can say is...it was about time,boys and girls(if there are any).I don't know about you,but I am very superstitious.I mean it.If I win,I don't change anything.I had those like 6-7 x pairs of my lucky boxer briefs-all different colours,but exactly the same type.Every morning after I take my wake-up shower I used take one of them out of my wardrobe and put it on.Not today though,forgot to do the laundry!Damn it,I had to put one of my non-lucky ones on and the swing came :s_confused: Something 350$ down the hill for 45 SnG's or in other words ~23 BI.I'm not worried atm nor pissed or something.What I'm hoping for is that it wont exceed a number of 50-60 BI.I think I had 70-80 BI swings couple of times so far.The games ware very tough as well,I think the best table I found had like 3 winners,not including me.And that's bad.I usually aim for 2 winners and some break-even regs.It's hard to find any better.I'll post few hands underneath,hope it will be interesting for you.

      Here SB is a winnng reg on the 15$'s I think I've seen him in some 30$'s as well,as I check them regularly.His stats are filtered for 3-handed-45/37/50(steal)/17.0(3bet),4.0-agg.f.-124 hands.Now I dont have much of a history playing ITM with him,but his play looks weird to me.I posted the hand in the forum as well.He probably knows he shouldn't be flatting here and I really think he played a big pair in a very poor way.On the flop I have to cbet,but his min3bet looks so bad,he's never doing this w a draw,because he is looking for FE,I don't have FE myself either,since he is getting great odds on his call.His line is just bad imo.I hope I made a correct fold here.

      So,from what I saw in these 2 hands is that although games are getting toughter,seeing winning regs make plays like that gives me a great deal of a hope.Take care!

      Haha : ) :P :P I thought about it a for a moment,but imo it's gonna be very impolite of my side if the same so-called reg finds himself in the thread.We all make mistakes.Plus,he might fix his leak!

      Thanks a lot,Gavron!We should really think of something,maybe we can make some skype sweat session,discuss different spots,whoever is up to,just msg me and we'll find an appropriate time for doing it.We can also make some session reviews and share our thoughts on different lines,it's so easy nowadays with skype or join.me.

      As for today-Insomnia mode in action.For some strange reason I couldn't fall asleep for something like 1 hour so I decided to sit and grind.After 1-2 a.m. tables get really juicy.There was a lack of traffic for like 2-3 hours(3.am.-6.a.m) so I had to mix it up with mostly non-speed Ko's.These were the only ones getting consistent traffic.Turbos were down,Turbo Ko's were completely dead,not to mention 30$'s or above.Just nobody there.So I started out good,then I had a bad swing again and at around 9 a.m. I was up with a bit over than 1BI up :P Haha,better this way I guess.I took a nap(not really a nap,cuz it took me 4 hours,but still...) and continued grinding.Last session I played very poorly.I hate it when I start to steam and misjudge sitiuations.So anyway,I finished the day with about 74 SnG's and 60 bucks behind.I got sucked out a decent amount of times,and Im pretty sure the bad streak will continue for some time.Today I went to the post office to get my PS token.Hope my funds are safer now.I think Im going directly to bed and I'll review the hands 2morrow morning or whatever time I wake up.I'm just too beat now and can't think straight.

      P.S.I hope tomorrow I will start playing a bit better,because today was just bad.Not that I tilt or something,I think I just got 2 tired and went on autopilot.We'll see.Night everyone!
