      Hi guys and girls

      First to say,its my pleasure to be part of this community.

      Ill just wrote short story about my poker life becouse i have flu and i need to make some tea and rest :f_biggrin:

      Im from Croatia and im 21.
      I learn to play poker on Facebook about 4 years ago playing evey time i was on my PC and having free time.What to say,i just fall in love.

      To make long story short.
      I was playing-grinding(if if i can cal that grinding) micro limits,NL4,earning some money monthly..not much,cca 150$ per month,enought for booze and party or two.
      What to say,i was just little biger fish who eat small fishes. :f_biggrin:

      I didnt think about moving up in limits primarily becouse my knowledge about poker was limited,basic stuf but NL4 becomes so boring.

      So here i am ..reading articles and watching videos ,posting my hands..im horny about poker like never before. :f_biggrin:

      btw i come to PokerStrategy and register on Stars this month..i think it was 12.Dec.

      This is my first blog so any advices would be appriciated.

      If you have question feel free to ask,feedback,anything. If i can help somehow it would be my pleasure..hope i will learn a lot from you guys

      pokerstars vip system becomes really great on higher limits, NL25+ I'd say is enough to easily get you SN (though you could get it via nl5-10 just as well)

      sretno s pokerom, nadam se da ces se uspjet progurat dalje i napredovat :) poz
