      Started numerous blogs but I end up forgetting about them. I think a blog will motivate me to improve my play. I play 25NL SH so if you want sweat sessions or session reviews hook me up on Skype.

      Moved to FTP a month ago and my BR is somewhere around 1.4-1.5

      I'll try post a bunch but don't expect much cause I am lazy :)

      Get your GF to sit in your room, every time you win a showdown she takes off a piece of clothing, that should motivate you.

      I on't think you played well even though you might be ahead at your loses and lose at the river. You should not risk all your stack with such mediocre hands and play a bit more conservative at those situations. I m not talking like a pro but I think you need this advice. Play your monsters this way and smallplay such hands would be better imo.

      I get enough of that in the bedroom. Also what happens if I lose a showdown?

      Had my first winning session in two weeks yesterday played really well and won close to 4BI. Today i lose 8BI. i don't understand where to go from here anymore. people sweat me, i review my sessions, i watch videos, i read articles, i put effort in and i never get anything back out.

      Considering I have had those hands reviewed and been told they were played fine. Maybe you could justify why? and not just say you agree with him when clearly you are just a troll following the bandwagon.

      EDIT: and before you say KT was badly played I had good reads to backup my ship.
