      Hey everyone,
      I've decided to start my own blog after going on tilt for a million and one time. It's killing me not only as poker player, but also as human being. It f***ed up my mindset and abolished some feelings. On the other hand, I've become almost insensible.

      Ok, what's about me. I'm from Lithuania and I'm 18 yo student. I've started playing poker maybe 1 or 1,5 y ago. Last 4 months I've been playing NL10-NL50 sh on ps/ftp. I ran quite bad, most of the tilt. Yesterday I've decided to play some higher stakes, where they respect my raises :D For sure, I got beaten by NL400-600 regs and I ended my day with 200 bucks left. So that's all I think, now what's about my goals :)

      Short term :

      :diamond: Read "The Poker Mindset"
      :diamond: Move back to NL25(start doing shots with 350$)

      Long Term :

      :diamond: Watch 3-4 videos per week
      :diamond: Move to NL50
      :diamond: Move to NL100
      :diamond: Become tiltless :D

      That's all for now. I'll start tomorrow. Cya!

      Oh, almost forgot :D

      Ho ho ho!!!
      Merry Christmas everyone :)

      I've already played 1.2k hands and I'm running 12bb/100 @ NL10. I will post graph when I'll reach 10k hands. At first it was hard to play NL10 after playing NL400 :D but now it's ok. There haven't been any difficult spots yet, so I'm posting a funny situation against very loose fish :f_biggrin:

      Hey guys :f_cool:

      I've played 1,7k hands at NL10 and I'm running 24,19bb/100. Unfortunatly It's EV 24,19bb/100 :D My winnings are -0,2bb/100. I decided to post my graph now, because I'm not playing as much as I thought before.



      Good thing is that I'm not tilting yet. I've started reading The Poker Mindset too. I'm planning to grind this night, so I'll update my blog after a grind night. Cya and GL at the tables :f_biggrin:

      Hey guys !!! :s_cool:
      Just woke up lol. Had a great NYE party :D I haven't updated my blog for a while, so decided to do it now. I've moved back to Pokerstars from FTP. I'm having a heater @ PS right now. Here is the graph.


      Idk if it's good or if it's bad that I haven't got any hands to post from the last 4k hands. Btw I have reached gold on pokerstrategy :)

      Goals for this month :
      :diamond: Finish reading The Poker Mindset
      :diamond: Become Silverstar on Pokerstars
      :diamond: Start doing shots @ NL25
      :diamond: 30k hands
