      Intro : My name is Ugis. I`m 18 and I from Latvia . (hope you know were it is) :D

      I start played poker when i was 15 because my friend play poker for living and i want to be like him. :)
      First year i played in party poker whit my mom acc. :D
      Run very bad and lost 50 $ pretty fast. :s_biggrin:
      Than i had break about two and half year.

      About 4 month in past I registred in partypoker and get my first 50$ on my name. (not mom) :)
      Start grinding after 20k hand step by step moving and getting back into stake
      i was over 700$.
      Than i cashed out and few weeks later when most part of my money was spend i though shoud start play poker again.
      I quickly pass quiz and get my 50 $ in my Full Tilt acc.
      And i set task ( Be micro(1-5$) SnG grinder.)
      I want to move up in stakes and i hope after +/- 1500 /2000 games reach my goal.

      yeah, sh*t happens. but if you're a winning player (which seems you are), u should put up your volume and focus on your winnning strategy and dont let the bad beats get to you.

      my story is similar to yours, i've made my way up to 530$ in 2 months just from playing 6max sngs - its not that hard

      good luck at the tables;) cya at the tables at ftp 6max 5$ in no time!

      well there are tons of ways how to play Jacks, but none of them are good :D in this spot, i think this isnt very profitable - most of the time, only better hands will call you

      i'd 3bet to 210, if orig. raisor pushes we have to decide based on our reads(but i'd call most of the time, players at these stakes tend to overplay Ax, small pairs..); if orig. r fold and MP shoves - we snap him; if both calls - we are in position

      Don't overplay your hands, just raise here and call his shove. By pushing you are so much more likely to be up against the top of his range.
      You have 30bb here so no need for that.

      i wish you the best of luck

      dont mind bad beats cause they only tell you that you're playing in a fish pond and should have no trouble of beating the micros.

      i myself started playing playing 2+0.25$ turbo full ring at fulltilt this month and have had no hard time taking fish money, up 173$ over 403 tourneys with 19% ROI, coupled with RB i've managed to build up my BR from 74$ to 272$ and will soon try 6+0,50$.

      Just dont let bad beats discourage you, and always try correcting mistakes u make and you'll be up from the micros in no time.
