      This is my second blog here, first one was not to successful (actually has just three posts :f_mad: ) but at that time I had some rl problems and dont play much poker. After that i continue playing at UB and ftp, not very good choices obv :f_mad: .
      After Black Friday I was looking where to play and paddy power poker was my first choice. Theres a lot of freerolls to grind and some very good promotions, like paddy pantsdown and fantastic fridey. I started from zero $ playing freerolls and invested winnings in paddy pantsdown promotional tours with $1 and $2 buy in ( at the begining that was a way out of my br ) and manage to go deep at some of them. When my br hit $80 I added $1 6max turbo stts and 3table non turbo sngs on my sessions.
      After that all goes pretty regular, some swings and break even periods but my br grows slowly. Right now br is $593 so im rolled for $5 tours.
      My goals for this month is to hit $1k br and play every day for iron man (sounds familiar :) ) promotions. Also im pretty close to gold status and my next goal is to watch all gold sng and mtt videos.

      So thats all for now. My English is ...well, not that good but one of my goals is to improve my English writing this blog at least to an acceptable level.

      Hi IngridN thank you. I decide to become more active on forum. Atm i preparing a bunch of hands to post for hand evaluation.
      Heres my graph for last 239 mtt tours. All paddys promotional tours are not in there because my hem not see them for some reason. My evidence for that tournaments is about +$400 in ~70 games. Yes they are extremely soft :s_love:

      Today's session finished good after all. Started very bad, lost 7-8 tours in a row. God damn weekend players are unbeatable sometimes. But later on they stop hitting every draw on me so I ended up with +$37.
      Also take $215 token for today's 200k tournament so I'm going to take a shot on big mtt, first time after 5 months, and hopefully BOOOOOST my roll :s_love:

      Didnt have time to put much of volume lately but generaly im satisfied with my mtt game. Have some big leaks especially on 3tables sng but working on it. I hope to be able to find enough time to post some hand for evaluation.

      All my aces ends like this. lost every big hand.
      Good side of this is that i finish my session earlier and spend time reviewing my game which i dont do very often.
