      Hi to everybody this is my first blog and if you have any advice about improving it I can take some friendly criticism.
      This blog is about my poker experience. I'll keep you up to date with my online and live(playing in a casino) sessions.

      In a couple of sentences I'll walk you through my poker "career".
      I started playing about a year ago and I must say that for the first 5 months I was down around 2000$ but then I started to actually improve.At the end of 2010 I won back all the money I had lost and won some money at he casinos playing roulette and black jack but that's another story (:. In jan. and feb. I mostly played at bwin.com and made a profit of around 600$.But 8 days ago I decided to withdraw all my money and to leave just 30$ on bwin and deposited another 30$ on pokerstars. I wast motivated by the player known as XWINK.So I decided to grow a bankroll starting from a small one.
      I must say that I don't actually have much time to play cause I have to study for finals.. but I manage to find 2 or 3 hours a day.

      For the past week I had a lot of success.
      I managed to grow my bwin roll up to 97$ by grinding at 0.02 0.04 stakes playing 6 (5max) tables.
      And the pokerstars roll got up to 86$ mostly by playing S&G (there aren't low enough stakes in order to apply bankroll management).when i get it up to 100$ I' start playing the 0.05 0.10 stakes(6max).Maybe I'll try which i basically sitting at a table with same amount of money and at the moment you double it you leave the table and buy at a higher table for the doubled amount.
      I want to say a few words why I've chosen these poker sites.In my opinion pokerstars has a good reward system and very good tourneys and bwin has some of the worst players( at least at the low stakes) in my experience it's normal for some players to pay a 5-bet shuv with K 10 o (and not only) I think if you're a beginner that's the place to start.
      I'll try to post every day and keep you up to date with my progress and I'll go trough some interesting hands I've encountered.
