      Hi,

      a ''short" introduction of myself:D :
      I'm studying at GroupT Engineering school. Electromechanics.
      I'm a player from the Dutch community for about a year now. Playing SH until NLHE 25. BR was 900 at top, switched to Ipoker & Ongame, lost 2/3 of BR.
      First I was fooling arround, then I begane to study and created a study blog and a normal blog. In november I won thread of the month and strategy thread of the month. Things were going very well. But then something happened.

      At the first day of school (this isn't going chronologic, hmmz? Memory is letting me down) someone knocked my tooth right out.
      I went to the police, hospital, sat there for ages to hear that there was no dentist in the hospital. Went to another hospital, had the worst pain of my life, pushing another tooth back in.
      Couldn't put back the one that was knocked out. Had lots of dentist visits/advice.
      Got a surgery(got some bone from cheeck and placed underneath the empty gap, to turn in a srcew for an implant.) Have to heal for 3 months, then having the implant, healing for 4 months and get the false tooth onto the implant.
      So by the end of the year I got it all back. :f_biggrin:

      For the justice part: I got a lawyer hired, but the case is going to be judged in 1to2 years I guess. So I have to pay it all by meself for now.

      So it was a rough year and I realised that I had to work harder for school. Poker was sipping way to much time. Hence I decided to withdraw my money for about 2 months.
      So I'm going to spent my time studying for school and studying strategy.

      Goals:
      :spade: watch move it up to the sky with TwiceT
      :heart: finish and re-read Ryan Fee's strategy guide
      :diamond: Analyse hands and give opinions
      :club: finding someone where I can analyse hands with(not producing hands by myself)

      Primary goal:
      Crush exams (hardest one)

      Done so far:
      half way Ryan Fee's
      Watched and made notes on TwiceT vid(soon online)
      Analyse some hands in dutch community, English soon

      Found the PERFECT woman, it's not going to get any better. :D

      :f_cry: just reading it was painful! I hope the healing process is getting better now.

      Wish you good luck for the next 2 months (studying and reaching your goals to continue playing poker).

      so sorry thought you were a girl (from your nick emma) and when you said your tooth got knocked out, it was such a facepalm moment.

      hmmm but it seems like you're a guy. even so, sounds brutal. good luck with healing.

      im up for studying hands. but you know, there's a lot in the hand eval forum as well.

      It was kinda brutal yes. Watched away, watched back at te guy, he saw his friends coming. BAM. Couldn't defend myself or anything. I was a thaiboxer for 2 years though X(
      Conclusion, knock someone down when he's not looking. :s_rolleyes:

      Indeed the judging section, but I also like to watch with someone. That's more difficult, because there you can see the action and you don't have that much time.

      Lots of mysery today at school. Building a Solar supported vehicle (small one). Meetings with the coach that were rescheduled.
      So I watched 2monts 2 million again. Such a motivation. :)
      Still looking for the show, that is quite similar. Online pokerplayers in a hotel in Las Vegas. Anyone knows it?

      At the moment studying for a test of electromechanical engineering. Its quite a lot, so tomorrow I will be studying all day. After that I will go to the gym for some spinning.

      One hour to study and then I will get a reward. Watching the second vid of TwiceT and make notes.
      Analysed some hands also and watched a short video on deucescracked.
      Signed myself in, free. But it seems, that you can't do much with your free account. Are there full movies available?

      Gtg

      Hey Emma,

      Great to see you have the time (between your busy schedule it seems) to post in our community and start a blog.
      I will most definitely keep an eye on it :s_cool:

      Sorry to hear about your teeth. I actually got punched in the club on the weekend for no reason at all so I feel your sympathy.

      BTW, that girl can get a little better. She should go blonde...
      I'm a sucker for blondes hehe.

      Goodluck with your journey. If you have any questions feel free to post bout NL SH cause that's my main game :)

      EDIT: I'm a little jealous of that kid w/ 50cent. I'm a big fan.

      ^^favorite even though the game and 50cent are not the best of friend no more.

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Nice song!
      She's the only girl that doesn't have to go blond!

      Yesterday I sat in the library from 8.30h till 16.00h to study for my test. After that I went spinning at the gym. But ofcourse my locker blocked itself and I couldn't open it. So we had to force it, awesome :]

      Today I heard that we don't have a test, which is good ofcourse.
      I decided to reward myself by playing a bit poker!
      It was a good session, I was very concentrated. But still looked too much at my graph. Should work on this.
      There was also a reload bonus that I wanted. But then this happened...

      My first graph after my re-birth. :D
      Quite happy about my play, besides I made some bad spews in the beginning without FE.
      This is NL5, below my limit. But who cares. I'm learning BEFORE earning.
      Have you met the new me?
