      Hi everybody,

      I used to have a blog here. If u want u can read how I went from shortstacking NL10 up to playing NL400SH and failing a bit.
      After that blog I lost some, played less, had a super month at NL200, forgot how to play lost bigtime, took a half year break because of personal reasons/no motivation.

      I had 650$ left in my bankroll and started playing NL25 again. bluffed too much, lost almost everything:




      I had 22.20$ left in my FTP account so I said fuck it, lets flip. Found someone who wanted to flip (Timor83, used to coach around here):

      start of an epic run!

      offcourse I wasn't completely broke, I had some rakeback coming my way (270$ or so) and some TAF money (85$=>partypoker account)
      I started grinding NL10 and using aggro BRM (15BI) I climed the limits pretty fast. I had some partypoints left so I cleared a 350$ bonus and withdrew everything to put it on FTP.

      offcourse running like god when u take shots @ NL100 HU helps a lot, here is a graph since december 1st where I had 22.2$ on my FTP account:



      yesterday I got deep in a 24$ KO tourney, sadly only managed to get 19th place, JT<KQ on KQx in 3betpot :( shipped 200+$ but first was 14k$ so kind of stupid imo :P

      I'll be posting weekly blogpost here and hope to get a lot of response!
      hopefully you'll enjoy reading here ;)

      For now my BR is about 4500$ and I'm playing NL100 as my maingame, both SH and HU.
      I'll be taking some aggressive shots at NL200, mostly bumhunting HU since there are a lot of bad players where u can win a lot of money from :)

      If u have any questions about me, my history or anything else, don't hesitate and just ask!

      yesterday -1115$

      was waiting HU @ NL100-400 and @400 a guy sat down I had noted as fish so I decided to play him
      he called a lot of 3bets and folded to cbets a lot so that was EZ money but the 3 big pots we played I all lost :P

      tried to barrel him off 7s7 in 1 3betpot on AXXsssKsX but he called down :(
      got it in with Khi FD in 3betpot against Ahi FD, that sucks offcourse (had the straight flush redraw on the turn though :D )

      after that I was down 1500$ so decided to quit and play some CoD black ops: zombies! :D
      played some NL100SH after and won some $$

      so yeah, lesson learned, will play NL100SH exclusively for now since apparently I'm rather good at that and don't want the variance of HU :D
      also, I noticed that @NL400 I'm not really in my comfort zone if I lose a stack so def. no NL400 anymore :D
      bankroll is still at a solid +4k$

      take some shots then, its really the same @ NL50 only everything's double :D
      and maybe they respect your raises a bit more but in general if your game is the same you'll win about the same (in bb)

      lol 23BI?? :D
      ask someone to sweat u if u don't feel 100% about moving up
      I'd do it but I have to study and if I'm taking a break I'll rather play myself :)

      Na i got 114 buyins dont think I need stakin just the balls im afraid im not used to 6 max swings. Thats pretty much all my sh hands ive ever played but after today if I dont move up I may be the least ambitious person in the world.
