      So i decided to take up my poker playing again so i decided to make a deposit of 10$ on full tilt. This was on friday morning and i was playing with those untill i had only 2$ left. I live in sweden and on this day we have something called summer party or (midsommar). I forgot about poker and drank and had a good time with my friends.

      After coming home i decided to play the last of my little bankroll i had left so there i was on the rush tables on full tilt. I played with those and i think i had the sickest run ever i made up to 22$ by just playing semi afk chatting with my friends. The night ended with me having about 12$ so i went to bed. The next morning i decided to try out the Rush MTT 1$ and i played. Things went good and i held myself in the tournment into the final table. At the final table i made it to the 3rd place after going AJ vs K3 and he hit a 3 ;( . I won 37 dollar and now my bankroll was up to 49$ in just a few hours.

      I decided to play very safe with this bankroll that god gave me for free i started to grind in rush poker tables for about 1 hour. It diden't go too god and i lost to about 31$. This made me get abit frustrated and i decided to play PLO on the rush table instead. My tactic was to go in with 4$ in the 10$ max buyin tables. This is were i had the most sickest run ever. It felt like people dident know what they were doing or all of them was drunk or something. I sure had some luck but my game felt very good. I played about 3 sessions that saturday with abit of a hangover. I suddenly found myself with about 110$ in my bankroll.

      Now i feel that my future is bright but i know i need to work on my game alot more. Anyone got some nice PLO videos that i can watch? I think that PLO suits me alot more than holdem so i think i will stick with it.

      Some hands from my sessions;
