      Hi all!

      1 YEAR, ONE FUCKING MILLION! SIETE777, GUSANOZ AND ME WILL TRY TO MAKE 1M from 1st September 2011 to 2012!!!


      (Originally we are 4 members: http://es.pokerstrategy.com/forum/thread.php?threadid=204885&threadview=0&hilight=&hilightuser=0&page=1)

      I'm Samy and I play on Stars NL400-NL1K. I'm a coach at the Spanish community (for 2 years and a half already) and I'm currently working at the offices as well as a Senior E-Learning consultant (basically, I help the CM with the community in terms of competitors, needs, offers, blabla).

      Some numbers

      - I have evaluated 8000 hands +
      - I won the pokerpromasters (50k€, http://pokerpromasters.com)
      - I write every month for a poker magazine (planet poquer)
      - My blog is http://theultimatemind.com (but I don't write that often) and my twitter is @UltimateSamy (I sometimes tweet live events, which I play if I'm sponsored only... Last week I was in Ibiza and it was aaaaaawesome)



      About my no-poker life, I'm 24 and I used to live in Barcelona and I was also in Malta for a while. Now I moved to Gibraltar, where I live with GusanoZ and within days Erick222 is going to be here as well.
      I love travelling and I take the opportunity to travel whenever I can. I also love basketball. About Univeristy and so on, I studied science computer engineering, electronical engineering and I'm currently studying business administratino (not presentially) but I'm thinking about droping it as I don't have much time for me any more with so many stuff to do.
      I hope we reach 1.000.000$ along this year (starting 1st of September) and you all come to the party we will hold if we achieve our goal :D


      Possibly, some days I will just c&p something in Spanish if I don't got time to translate it but at least you can read a little bit about me.


      I will post some pictures as well. Some from partying so you know what you will get for posting constantly :D

      Hey guys!

      Who am I?

      My name is Adil, Im german origin and 26 years old. I live for 1.5 years in Gibraltar now, before that I lived in Malta and Barcelona. Im a professional poker player for apr. 3 years, Black Member and video producer in spanish, german, french and also for you. ;)
      ____________________________________________________________

      What can you expect from me?

      Ill blog weekly about my goal to achieve SNE this year. Since I was way too lazy all year (mainly too much travelling), Im still on 450 k VPP so it will be the hell of a grind. Im playing mainly midstakes (400-2k). Btw. its senseless to ask for my nick, since I wont tell it to anyone.

      Beside that youll read about...
      - interesting hands and my thoughts abouth them
      - graphs and stats
      - psychology content
      - Videos from us exclusively for the english community
      - Thoughts about the mental game and the challange involved with grinding
      - music, pictures of travelling, parties, of the ps.com company in gibraltar and of gib in general.
      - a sick party at the end of the challenge - if we achieve it - for all of you that are willing to come to Gibraltar to visit us and the company

      ____________________________________________________________

      Whats the goal?

      Pretty easy, just 4 words and two numbers: 1 year, 1 million dollars. The challenge begins the 1st of september 2011 and ends the 31st if august 2012. We are 3 guys:

      1) Dani aka Gusano21 aka GusanoZ

      2) Samuel aka Samy4ever aka deluxesamy

      3) Adil aka Siete777

      My personal goal is to make at least $350.000 which should be easily done if I find the motivation to grind.
