      Hi there,

      I have been member of Pokerstrategy for a while, didn't post much, but i feel i belong to community :) I am from Lithuania, Vilnius. Mainly i need this blog for extra motivation to play.

      I were a fish for a long time, when i thought i'm decent already i played everything (HU SNG, NL2, 6mans, 45mans, Rush MTTs <--- lol, DoN), but actual grinding started out at Fifty50.

      $1 Fifty50



      Made very Agro shot at $5 Fifty50 (6% ROI after 1000 games)



      Then moved up to $10 Fifty50 (13% ROI after 1200 games)



      Few shots at $20s



      Then Black Friday came and ruined my things totally. People say that other SnGs became softer, can not say same about Fifties. Played tables with ~8 other regs at Friday evening.. Prime time, huh? Decided to switch. And closest format you can think of? 9-mans ofc.

      $6.50 9-mans



      And my lifetime Stars graph



      I am getting coached by Leesthanthreee and i think this is awesome. Had only one coaching so far, but i have a feeling that it will lead me to the victory :)



      So, currently i moved to FTP, playing 10+1 regular speed, i didnt play enoughtgames to generate graph, so we can skip that.

      Oh, and about my playing style. I am passive, probably loose and passive :) some of my favorite hands:

      10/10/10/10/10 goes for half prizepool shared and 50/0 stands for ChipEV. That makes it 60/10/10/10/10
