      Hi all!

      I am Tomi from Hungary.

      I've been playing online poker for about a year. Since last year's May I learnt everything from the very beginning. When I won my first freeroll for 12$, I felt something like never before: Gambling excitement.

      Since then I've already built a quite big bankroll (over $3k), but I had to cashout the most of it, because of some financial problem, so nowadays I accept less challanges.

      In May I succesfully completed an 500 to 1000$ challange in about 2 weeks playing fix limit 0.25/0.5$ and 0.5/1$.
      In June I had a big downswing, so I decided to begin something else than FL, however it is my main orientation.

      As NL MSS looks more simplier than NL BSS, I chose it.
      I started on NL10 rush, 40BB buy-ins.
      Played about 25k hand on June, running pretty good, and seemed It can be a new game I enjoy next to Fix Limit.

      But the easy day was yesterday, FTP sucked out and me too, as well as many of my friends. Shit happens.


      [SIZE=20][CENTER][COLOR=teal][SIZE=16]Fix[/COLOR][COLOR=darkblue]Limit[/color] [color=teal]challange[/COLOR][/CENTER][/SIZE][/SIZE]

      Starting: 1st August

      After FTP-busto, I returned to the FL tables. Nowadays I'm not grinding so much, but I've to be really ambitious if I wanna beat 1/2, 2/4 and so on.

      In this reason I'm starting a brand new challange.
      I'm going to deposit 150$ to PokerStars, and try to move up as soon as possible.

      I want to build a $2k bankroll this year, and already made a schedule for this, and I'm quite sure I'm going to be succesful. :)

      So first update about the challange 1st August, hope make many readers and visitors. :)

      Good luck all! :s_cool:

      Hy!

      I'am from Hungary, but my English is very bad. So I say just for you: Good luck my friend. I start challange on 1st July too, i have blog here too.

      And I think, 2bi stoploss is to weak, the variance with playing MSS is high, so I think 3-4 BI stoploss is optimal.
      GL! :)

      Hello lady,

      Röviden annyi történt hogy az FL mellett kicsit toltam NL MSS-t is, egész sikeresen lement NL10-25-ön kb. 20k hand, sajnos BR-em nagy része bennragadt FTP-n szóval jelenleg bonuswhore-kodom kisebb termekben, MSS-t pedig csak rushon toltam, mivel így tudtam gyorsan sok handet letolni.

      Augusztus 1-je körül azonban lesz egy depo-m 150$ körül Starsra, FL.25/.50-en fogok grindelni és úgy tervezem hogy minden session-t után fogok postot írni a naplóba.

      Még idén megpróbálok visszajutni 1/2$-ra hogy jövőre már tényleg meg legyen a SuperNova Starson. :)

      Veled mi a helyzet, btw nem is tudtam h magyar vagy (vagy csak beszéled a nyelvet)? :)

      So, let's shake up a little this lazy blog...

      I've been playing since yesterday, as I had a few weeks break. Now I'm running pretty well, and the most important: after so many months, I REALLY ENJOY THE GAME. :) :f_love:

      Tomorrow going to post graphicons. Started about 150$ FL.25/50 @ Stars, easy day was today had a 100 BB winning session, playing 4 tables mainly and seems to be +EV so far.. :f_biggrin:

      Gl all, and have fun. :f_p:

      Session 1-3.

      So here I am, as promised here is the graph of the first 3 days:



      About the stats:
      [b][x] VPIP:[/B] As I play 4 tables only, 27% VPIP is maybe a bit high, but many of the top winner grinders has about 25-33% at higher limits as well. :s_cool:
      [b][x]bb/100:[/B] 3.74 So far so coooooooool, I planned 2bb/100 for this month, playing about 25-30k hand. I don't feel having so huge upswing, I tried to spend more time with table-selecting, and noting every single leak about fish. :)
      [b][x] 10.5 hours[/B] played, so 6.86$/hour is pretty good right now.
      [b][x] 69.77$ rake[/B] < 72.30$ profit.. :f_thumbsup:
      [x] I am not so satisfied with the number of hands played. I have much more free time in August so I have to play a bit more.

      Session 4-7.

      Okay, I have just finished game for this week. I am really satisfied, everything has been better than expected. :)

      First of all, I planned about 10k hands, but I really was not sure I'll play "so much". :? But yep! I played 13 k hands, and feel the motivation. 4k - first 3 day and 9k the last 4 days, which means that I enjoy more and more the game, and I do not always look for alibi against grinding. :s_cool: Approach is the most important now for me, I had some mental problem with poker.

      2bb/100 looks more than reachable this limit, especially after finding out the multi-tabling fish regs.

      The graphicon:
      I just don't like that there are so many big swings, but day by day I keep finding my leaks. This makes me feel happy. :D
