      Well my blogs pretty bad pretty sure I was hammered when I made it. Im drinking now as well which makes sense its pretty much the only time ill talk about myself. Im pretty much your 50$ to professional poker player story. My only experience with poker before poker strategy was some 1$ tournaments on my dads account and a cool starcraft friend gave me a 150$ roll back when poker was real soft but I had little interest in it (too bad)

      I asume I went busto. I was 16-17 with no goals in life and had little to no interest in it. Years later I found this site in tot)mondragons('s profile on starcraft a famous german player who I knew with connections to korn and many other german community members and I got linked to his referral page lucky him.

      I just turned 18 legal age to gambles in Canada so I thought I could get a legit starting roll. Sounded cool probably would have used the standard 4 buyin rule untill they made me take some sort of test with some sort of "bank role management" and a short stack strategy. Well this seemed to kind of work as I trippled my roll with deposit bonuses and profit but I soon lost interest in with summerjob/school/life stuff.

      I think I dicked around for a year then when I was out of town for the summer I got pressured into registering for the local community college by the parents. They amused I knew wtf a computer was because I played starcraft all the time and information technology was most likely the best course the shitty college had to offer to I took it. (ya I paid the bill even though they said they would)

      At first I loved the vibe of college. I even got perfect on my first test which I never did in highschool. I can honestly say I never studied once in 4 years of highschool. Im pretty smart so I glided by but not smart enough to study. A talent I noticed I had was I could walk into any test and get 60-80% with out ever being conscious in class.(like I slept or never showed up they really laxed in northern Ontario. Im still not sure if its because i am a genius or the canadian school system is made for retards.

      After a few months of being in a very expensive program that I had little interest in with some studying attempts and maintaining low average marks I came down with the swine flu (Ya that swine flu) I missed two weeks of classes.

      This was near the new years of 2010 I believe. Being very contagious and in the northern Canadian winter there is not to much to do. I started fiddling with poker on my party poker via pokerstrategy again where I still had 110-150 kickin around. I think the short stack strategy was still breathin but I really didn't enjoy it at the time. ( I would love owning all them bad regs with it now adays =[) I crushed nl5 bss pretty easy. I dont remember it at all because It was quick. Nl 10 I dont remember much of either but this is where I took the biggest shot of poker to date.(all fr)

      To alot of people it probably Doesn't seem like a big deal. But to a nit like me my life should have lead down another path(busto). I knew all about bank role management but I took huge shots with nl25. I had my whole bankroll in play all the time at as many tables as I could. I kept adding more and more tables as my bankroll built. Being honest I was probably on a huge heater.

      All of a sudden I got this message from party poker saying I could not play more then 18 tables. So I found this auto readd on button etc etc. By the end of the month and alot of missed school I was rolling well over 2k and had this cool diamond statues. Over 80 buyins. Now I was lucky dont get me wrong but I was also putting in 10-12k hands a day I was addicted.

      Needless to say im a college dropout lol. not to sure If I passed my exams but I certainly didn't pay tuition for the second semester.

      When you have 450-1000 in play and you have only ever worked for 8$ an hour its exiting. Well as the long Canadian winter went on I was introduced to tilt, depression, and the fact that my month and a half heater was an upswing. Here is my 3 month pokertablerating graph that im no longer embarrassed to show http://www.pokertableratings.com/party-player-search/ImBadAtPoker

      (although my -600 day was my drunk dad on my account lol)


      Although that summer I sat myself down and asked myself If I really wanna be something instead of working for minimum wage. Even if I have to play 20x more hands I will be better. My roll was about as low as 200$ still playing nl25/50 thinking I was the shit when I manned up. I dropped right to the nl4 40bb tables AND NIT IT UP. Now to this day because of this tramatic experience I am problay a huge nit and not of the ihufa level but im working on that ;p.

      Since then I played on a few sites and changing my id on party poker almost monthly and dont keep many graphs but here is the best example http://www.pokertableratings.com/party-player-search/sicklucker


      Not the most impressive winrates but I was living off this so I couldn't dick around with shots or table cutting. I had a great hourly rate alot more then any job I could get in this so called "recession" Eventually with party pokers formally great vip system and my pretty cheap lifestyle I had 20k saved up not to bad imo. (-3k FTP FU)


      However since then I might be a luckbox yo. I staked some people mostly broke americans after black friday from liquidpoker.net (I made some money) Also partypoker decided to misclick on a friday night I was 18 tabling nl100 === PartyPoker World Domination promo ===

      Sucking out for 20k on a friday night was not as cool as it sounds imo. I cant top that with my current abiltys/my limitations. I am a guy who Is very impatient and self taught. I have watch way to few videos (almost none) for a pro poker player and have not sought coaching. I have lost almost all motivation for cash games. I have compensated by improving at strictly plo cash games and mtt's (mostly sng 180's)

      I have been recently successful at both and am nearly 100% sold on moving to cabo mexico (at least for the canadian winter) with one of the poor broke almost sne americans I stake and his mates who can certainly teach me things.

      Sorry If I ranted a little bit I havent slept in 24/h and drank some :D . Ill keep this updated alot more if their is interest. Im sure my spelling is bad and ill probably compress it when im all sober. I like pokerstrategy people alot~. I kinda wrote this to motivate myself :O .


































      Old Front page post ~ (lame) uncie targets gonna show all you younguns how to build a 50$ roll on stars grindin sng's. Im way to bored from cash games and am pretty much a beginner like you!

      Well no matter how good you are its certainly not worth your time if you only 1 table. And I suck so I gotta plays many tables ;o

      My sort term goal is to get rolled for 2.50 180's and 3r which is pretty much the only sng's ive ever played.

      So today was my first day I didnt get the 400 I wanted to start at 2.50's but now its like im a pokerstrategy n00b :D . I played 45/90 man 50cents and lotsa 10 cent 360's :D . I ended up doing pretty bad at the 50 cent games (maybe im too agro for 45mans?;o) My bankroll would of took a hit if it were not for my luckboxing skills as I got 2 firsts and a suck-outed second in the 360's first was only 7$ not gonna get me to 2.50's anytime soon but its nice to crush 369 souls:D

      Heres my sharkscope stats so far 101 $0.07 $0 109% $7
      and my stats not counting 360 mans 72 -$0.11 $0 -25% -$8
      (im huge chip leader in my last 90 man so ill probly be closer to even)

      Current bankroll 60$+what I win in this last one ill probly go play more after I eat im addicted oO

      this is too easy for you just grinding inside your bankroll, no milestones, no time set. you should set something like 50 to 100k$ in a week.

      Got a bit of a hangover so not gonna grind so hard or at all today. Didnt sleep for like two days and got insanely drunk seemed like a good idea. Already proved I crush these games so looking to move up faster to 2.50$180's and r rebuys. I might acept a short term staking deal but I doubt ill get one I cant produce any stats for beating them even though I am over a small sample. So instead ill try to sell peices.

      If I can sell 75% of 2.50/180 turbos ill be rolled no markup for these
      Id also like to sell 1$90man turbos I obviously crush these but no markup untill im over rolled for them (very soon i think)

      if someone wants to buy peices of a block of my lower games that can be arranged but im crushing with 40%roi over 1000 games so there will be a markup :D

      But I mostly want to get into 180's bigger field =more edge ill do something like a 400$ block (160games or smaller if you want) selling 75% for 300
      so if you a n00b who wants to gambles buy 1% for 4$ post here~

      hey mate! :)

      I've met you at the tables! ( i read your screen name on staking forum) . ( I am TILT_box1337 on stars - so you can know you have to fold when I push :D ).

      Started grinding 90 mans 45mans as well, from $0.50 with $50 roll, and slowly taking some shots to $1. Yesterday I came 6th in $0.50 MTT (1.5k guarant) for $86, and now has a roll to easy play $1 90mans + I can take some shots at $2.50 180mans as well.

      see you at tables. :)

      cool small world? O maybe I just play every table under 1$ on stars? i donno.
      You should win more and invest in a few peices of me send me 1.25 on stars and if I bink a 180 with it you get half! Watch out for my crazy agro bad manner style. Playing 10cent 360's/.50 /$1 90's and 1.50 ko's sick of the 45 mans kills my roi~

      Oh and for anyone who wants to gambles some money selling 2.50 180 turbo peices

      im only halfed rolled for 2,50 180's but I crush em hard for every 1.25 you ship me ill put the other half of the buyin and we split the profits better odds then the lottery right? :D
