      Hi everyone,

      I am dacha from Belgrade (Serbia), I am member of this community for about a year now (I guess that is strange, cause noone ever heard of me :) ), I dont have some epic story to tell, and I never took playing poker for serious, I am not sure if I ever will but I'll give it a try.

      I was playing pretty much every game there is on the internet, not that I played good though, but I still managed to find the game that suits me best (If I fail in this one, I'll just find another one :D ) MTTs. I really enjoy playing MTTs, but since the variance in this is huge, I will go for a little better solution 180man turbo SnGs on PokerStars. I was watching dfsuperstar series on this SnGs, and realized that this are actually craziest thing online, perfect for me though.

      Goal:
      :heart: Beat the 180man turbo SnGs

      July Goals:
      :spade: Play 500 $2.50 180man
      :spade: Achieve Gold rank

      I hope this blog will keep me motivated enough to achieve this goal, and offcourse any advices are welcome....
