      Hi,

      You can find me atm at the NL 50 tables on microgaming (though you'll not know when you play against me).

      I'll soon update this first post with more details about me, goals and what I focus on atm.

      Hey there!

      It's funny, you seem to be very much like me :f_biggrin:

      Except for the part that I'm playing 90 man Turbo Knockouts. I'm trying to build up a bankroll and move up the limits there. Also reading The Poker Mindset at the moment and trying to improve my game every day. And I have the same problem like you have... I'm studying and can only play poker in the evening, so my goal is to increase the volume... As a result I also wanted to play Rush, but failed at the first try. I'm pretty much a SNG and MTT player.

      On what poker site are you playing?
      Maybe we could do some sessions together sometimes?

      Love your ambitions and will follow your progress for sure! :f_p:

      I'm playing at the moment on Full Tilt.
      When I first tried rush I also had a brutal downswing but obviously it was amplified due to my very poor play. If you want to give rush another try you should join the skype rush poker study group :s_biggrin: .

      Thanks for the appreciation and maybe we'll sweat together for some fun when I'll give a shot at sng's :f_cool:

      It is that bad ? :s_o: I don't have what else to do, maybe pharmacy but I don't like it that much :f_confused:

      I want something that I can rely on if the poker doesn't work out and I don't find many other options.

      Uni will take so much of your time and considering what wage you'll have in Romania it is definitely not worth it. Either go study abroad and keep poker as a hobby or stay in Romania, grind your ass off and be a pro.

      The 250 $ it's not doable for me. It meens 6 hours of grinding or around 6.5-7k hands and for the moment that is 2 much for me and my schedule.

      Tried it today, played well for the first 3-4k but got very tired after and stopped at almost 6k. I don't think it's worth it. :s_confused:



      LE: i'm still going after it :s_biggrin: , i'm getting the 125$ bonus for sure :f_cool:

      The graph for november - bad month + bad play :f_confused:



      My red line is just racing downwards since I started rush from 30k+ or such



      Maybe will look for a coaching deal after I play a little more

      The graph for today



      That's the difference between 4 tabling and 3 tabling rush nl 25 sh :f_grin:


      I strongly prefer quality over quantity. One more benefit is the fact that I'm analyzing the tricky spots while playing :s_biggrin: .

      so far this month :



      Today run very cold, I didn't really hit any flop but I'm happy with some plays I've made. Now I'm going to analyze my last sessions for a couple of hours or such.

      Also watched one of hasenbraten's video and I've noticed that I'm running out of videos on my limit :s_biggrin: , but I'm gonna rewatch a few good feries like : Crushing nl 50, Preflop play , Mathematics in poker (or smth like that, the hasenbraten's series).

      That's it for today's post :f_grin: .

      Never seen such a fishy pool, even though the rush week's over and definetely I have to work on my mindset.

      I think I'm going to buy a dc account this month :f_cool:

      Had some sort of revelation regarding my personal life and it made me much more stronger in my mindset. :f_love:

      Played 2.5h today 100% A game and I enjoyed it so much knowing that I was making all the right plays. I also fall in love again with the sensation of playing 100% tilt free :f_love: :f_love:

      Also played a more laggish style like 20-21/18-19 :s_cool: Awesome!
