      Hello everybody, first of all my name is Vlad from Constanta,Romania, well what i want i want to write in this blog well ... I was following the Maritime University of Constanta, but i kinda droped out... Yes it was my fault and i feel really bad about droping out because i am usually a smart guy, but this time i was kinda stupid, tought it was like highschool but .... it wasnt. So college wont accept me back until next year, found out that the year before you could repeat the year if you didnt pass. So now i have to tell my parents that are both away .. it will happen in 1 or 2 days. So the fact is that i have 1 year at my disposal to make something from poker, i recently won a mtt 1.1k, my bankroll reached 1400$ but i had to withdraw 500 $ to try pay of some of my exams but ... i failed lol. My current br is 800$, from the 500$ i withdrew 150$ went to my college for some exams as i previously told yall but i had no succes lol, so now i have left 350$ from that, i want to buy me a new monitor because the one i have now sux big times, samsung syncmaster765 look it up (it sux). So im thinking of spending 150$ on my new screen, and the rest of it invest it in live poker :) local games, 50-100$ entry, but the players usualy are rich kids that dont give a fuck about how much they loose, so hopefully my cards will hold lol. The other 800$ that i have on 888poker btw, forgot to mention that, i will prolly play mtt's mostly but also cash 9 tables prolly 3-4 nl20 and the rest nl10, dont wanna rush into nl 20 bcuz i dont have alot of experience there, but the bad play of the players on 888 well it makes up for my unexperience at nl20(shortly said alot of fishies). Oh and i will also get a job, prolly as a picollo or a waiter in a club, but it wont affect my poker game and goals because i will prolly only work on weekends.

      And now hopefully me droping out of my college will be a good thing not a bad one. First of all i hope i do make more money from poker because i really really want to make a living out of it, because i dont want to have that life where you get up go to work come home and sleep,+ having an idiot of a boss yelling at you all the time lol. And 2nd about my job, prolly will meet a new bunch of people and stuff :D + im gonna work in a club(did it b4) it pwns (in a good way)

      So my goals in poker are:

      Play 50k+hands of cash poker.
      Get to 2000$ by the end of October.

      This are my goals so far, pretty easy i think :-s Lets see what happens

      So in the near future i will be posting hands mtts results and so on, and god damn guys i need your suport lol, gimme anything that can help me sites with mtt's strategy's, books to read, feedback on my hands and so on

      Thank you, smile101 :)

      to bad to hear about your school problems ....btw every kick in the ass is one step forward!

      how long have you been playing poker? What other big shipped did u have before? what was your playground before hiting this 1k tourny? Do you have any other friends playing poker? Usually it helps a lot to have friends whom you share your poker hobby!

      hope you reach your goals faster ! good luck buddy

      Hello again, well as i tought a huge shit storm is coming my way haha.Trying to look positive at this whole thing but i dont think i can. So huge fight with my parents about the whole college thing, thinking of moving out in the next 2-3 months ... + my fking pc fried two days ago, actualy 2 hours after i added my last post .... So my conclusion here "Good things dont come alone" lol xD . On the poker front well i dont know is going pretty shitty i gues since i dont have my "tool"' lol, hoping to get it fixed asap, but ive made some itms and shit gone up a little on cash i gues its the best i can hope for atm. Il post updates with hands graphs etc when i get my pc back.

      Oh and does anyone use Holdem Manager can could be so kind of helping me with a hud for cash and mtt's ? :D thx




      and heres a nice song.Enjoy
