      Hello guys,

      My name is Hrvoje, im from Croatia. Im 20 years old and i am studying computer science (second year).

      Recently i decided to change my site (i do that a lot), this time i chose pokerstrategy as affilate because i like the idea of progressing and getting coaching and free videos in the meantime.

      Site i decided to play on will be Euro poker on ongame network, my bankroll atm is 4400$. I will try to take a shot at NL100 when i get 40k hand sample on NL50 with a decent winrate.

      One thing i hope i will be able to do is to clear one part of my first deposit bonus, i made a mistake and got much greater batches of bonus than i can clear with the stakes im playing. Hopefully i'll be able to clear 1/4 of bonus which is 550$.

      so my goals for next 30 days are:
      1) platinum status
      2) part of bonus cleared
      3) gold status in atleast next 5 days
      4) atleast 5bb/100 winrate
      5) 25k hands at nl50

      Currently im playing 5max and 3max tables mostly, on some 3max tables i played some heads up aswell (only versus very bad players).

      here are my stats for the small time i was playing on europoker



      one thing i see is that i am going way to often to showdown, i really should focus a bit more on that

      and here is graph



      i hope i will keep this blog updated, and that i will post some cool hands here.

      Had a pretty rough session, ongame made an update and it was pretty bad, really threw me off my game.

      In this hand , villain is playing 24/21, 3b - 9, hes stealing from button 44%. 2k hand sample.
      Im not rly sure how can i get away from this hand, only if i just called preflop. I dont like 3b/folding this kind of a hand.

      in this hand i missplayed it rly bad, i should have known that he was commited after his bet on turn, i think he wouldnt bet 3/4 w his bluffs.
      Not sure what is the proper way to play this hand.
      villain is 22/18, 3b from sb -9 on 3k hands
