      Hey i'm amplifyd and this is like my 5th blog probably. Every other one I just stopped posting in lol - but this one I am actually going to try to keep it updated and post regularly.

      I'm a 18yo university student from England and I've been playing poker for about 1.5 years now.

      I'm currently playing MTTs and cash games (NL25) and my roll is ~$1900. (Also play nl100 live occasionally for which I have a roll of around £1k to add to my online money) I want to try to reach and solidly beat the midstakes this year (like nl100/200 and $20-50 mtts). I plan to keep track of my progress in this thread.

      Over next month or so got university exams coming up so I have to do fair amount of work for those but I also plan to play a ton of poker - like 60/70 mtts a day (including 45 man sngs). Going to have schedule something like :

      12.00 Wake Up
      12.30-5.00 Revision (w/breaks)
      5.00-1.00 Play poker, end reg at 1am
      (1-5am) Finish off session then go bed

      Thats in week, friday+saturday will be for going out :f_biggrin:

      Played small session - around 4k hands rush Nl25 SH. Ended up breakeven.

      Probably going to go out later tonight, so likely won't play (much). Probably going to play live on the 27th or if not I will likely play a 5pm-5am mtt session.

      Well in middle of a session right now, since 2pm. Stuck about 300 right now, although got some decent stacks so should cash a fair bit hopefully.

      Ran pretty bad, got 2 outered twice for the chiplead in a $10 6max when in late game which was pretty sick. But yeah guess thats mtts for ya :P

      Will post results after I finish playing.

      Went to play live - came back about £140 (~$220) up. Came 6/42 in a donkament for £100 (though should of cashed more, fucked up in a pot when i was 2nd) and then won the rest playing cash.

      Going to bumhunt nl50 HU now, fuck sleeping :D

      Played 2.5k nl50 HU hands today. Bumhunted pretty hard, apart from a few reg matches (going to have to take a look at them, I think I spewed pretty hard in them).

      Anyhow ended $200 up.

      Really must begin to revise more for my exams more, going to sleep now for 8 hours then I will do some work when i wake up for sure :f_biggrin:

      Ok so just about beginning to feel normal after going out last night.

      Played about 40 $5 45 mans - made a profit of $120

      I have over 200bi's for the $10's right now but Im going to wait a few days until I hit 220 so that I have a really big buffer because I am a pretty tilt succeptible player and I just like to be perfectly comfortable with brm so I can concentrate on my playing.

      I'm not really big on goals etc. but for 2011 I would like to have a 5 figure bankroll by the end of it. Bring on the luckboxing!

      Hey all, plan to play a big mtt session today. Starting at 17.35 GMT and i'm going to reg for pretty much everything $10 and under, going to shot at some higher BI's (nothing more than $30 though) with good structures. Gonna play 45 mans too as filler games. Feeling it today, i'm due a big cash :P

      On side note, I might make journey to a £50 (~80$) deepstack £10k gtd live tournament tomorrow, and also play cash for a couple of days live.

      Won about 50$. Had pretty sick beat HU in a $8 180man.

      Flatted his 3b with kk.

      Flop J93r.

      He bet, shoved over he called. Shows Ah9h. 3h is on flop.

      Turn, river hearts. Standard

      Oh and another pretty sick hand was losing 2 outer for top 10 pot deep in a superstack. But yeah, donkaments :P

      Quick Update. I have won a bit online past few days, and my roll is currently around $2.3k or so. However since I am very under prepared for my exams in 10 days, I have decided to exclude myself for the time being - because I have no self control over my playing :P

      Ok because I am such a degen, I ended up depositing $50 on full tilt a day after my exclusion, and began playing nl5 rush. The aim is to try to spin this into $750-1k by march so I can go and play some live $150 donkaments that are side events to the uk poker tours (ukipt and gukpt)

      Im just about to move up to nl25 shortly (have $250). Here are some graphs :

      nl5 rush:



      nl10 sh rush (lol fail):


      nl10 fr rush:


      Btw - I know the numbers don't add up from $50 but I found $60 in a moneybookers acct so added that to the cause.

      No updated in a while. In short I started playing again with my full roll - won a little in mtts then had a really hot run yesterday and shipped lots $$.

      Had a deep run in a superstack where i busted 60th or so - perhaps made a slightly bad bluff - villian made lol call though.

      Then I ran deep in some $8s and cashed like $120 from those I think.

      Then ran deep in a $11 knockout. FT'ed it then this lost standard two outer. 6th for just over $100

      Played in the new multi entry 3by3by3 turbo - 1.9k entrants. We chopped it up with 6th left on final table for $600. (I don't mind this because my edge is probs not so great in a turbo plus its high variance).

      Then I had also entered the $1 1r+1a 1kgtd on full tilt - tho it makes near $10k. Ran deep on both my entries - one came about 90th out of the near 5k field. The other entry I was chiplead from about 50 players left all way to final table.

      Made some pretty bad plays in this. like this one :

      And this one - I was stealing a lot so I levelled myself into thinking they were adjusting - but they aren't. Its not horrible play though - just probably a little bad at this buyin.

      And this is where I should take it down with over 50% of chips in play. But sme luckboxing from villians hitting two pairs on rivers and a bad bluff from me put me down to about 5mil. Then SB opens to 480k. I shove for just over 10x his bet with AJs. He instacalls with 66 - I lose a flip (finally lol) and bust for $900. gg

      Probs take few days off now since I have a probability exam on monday. Then its 6 day in a row grindament whilst I have no lectures and double guarantees is on.
