      Hi poker friends! Here I will write everything about my "poker life". But at begining let me introduce to you. I came from Slovenia. I starded playing poker in 2007. But like most of us I didn`t study the game and what is worse I don`t know anything about bankroll managment. So busted my bankroll several times and for that reason I stoped playing poker for about year or two. And then came 2010 and I starded playing again and learning it. And in 2011 I discovered this amazing site for learning poker. I don`t have any big success and I think that for that will be time in future. For now is important that I learn as much as I can. So I hope that you will help me. Ok whay I play poker? Of course because of money, but also because of fun. It is great game and if I can make some money with playing it whay not? I have goals in poker that I wanna to reach, but about them in later posts. There is just one think that I swear to myself and I already do that. I give 20% of my monthly winnings to charity organisation which help poor people in township where I came from. For now is not much but is from hart.

      Graf of my all hands till today from partypoker:




      Also I will post here connections to my hands. Those are from yesterday:
      1.), 2.), 3.), 4.), 5.), 6.), 7.), 8.)

      Thanks roopopper! But today wasn`t so good. I made $-5,45. Also I have BIG PROBLEM with NON SHOWDOWN WINNINGS. Is this more because I play too many hands or because my bad post flop play? Also I wanna ask you how you organize your time for poker, so you have it enough for playing, evaluating hands and learning from articles? Ok here are some todays hands that I past so you can evaluate them.

      1.), 2.), 3.)

      Finaly! Today was the most successsfully sesson since I start writening my blog. I made $6,92. I hope that at the end of the month I will have enough large bankroll for hire limit (NL10). Ok maybe I can tell you now what long therm plan I have. I wanna get to NL400 till 1.12.2013. I think that is possible. Let me tell you how. I start with NL2 at PartyPoker and bankroll of $20. Yes just 10BI. And that`s not all. I multitabling 6 full ring tables. There was prety easy, because I select tables with Tablescan Turbo and always find good tables for play, so I don`t bust my bankroll. That was 2 months ago. Last month I start at NL4 with $40 and when I get to $50 I start NL5 at PokerStars (3 tables NL4-Party, 3 tables NL5-Stars). Now I have $66 separate on Party and Stars. I hope you will understand because is some sort of complicated. I start with 10BI bankroll, but with every higher limit, I will grow BR for lover limits. So if I get to NL10 with $100 and lost 3BI I go to NL4, NL5. If I lost again 10BI for NL4, then I will go back on NL2 and there you can see, that I grow my BR for NL2 from 10BI on 15BI. Yes it is complicated, but when you get used to it it is not realy. That I tell you because you won`t think, that I will always play just with 10BI. I go just up when I get 10BI for higher limit. Now whay till 2013. I think, that for eeach higher limit I will need one month more to beat him. So I decide like that: NL2-1Month(1.8.2011-31.8.2011), NL4, NL5-2M(1.9.2011-31.10.2011), NL10-3M(1.11.2011-31.1.2012), NL25-4M(1.2.2012-31.5.2012), NL50-5M(1.6.2012-31.10.2012), NL100-6M(1.11.2012-31.4.2013), NL200-7M(1.5.2013-31.11.2013), NL400-1.12.2013. That is my calendar. I set this goal, because it`s possible. I try to reach NL400 earlier if knowledge and luck allows me. Ok that is all for now. Here are my hands from todays session: 1.), 2.), 3.), 4.), 5.)

      Why do you write your name and then hand evaluations in the subject of your hand evaluation threads? :f_eek:

      Why do you write your name and then hand evaluations in the subject of your hand evaluation threads?

      When I started posting hands, I make new thread with that name (mylove190207 - hand evaluations) so I will post all my hands there, so I can have all of them in one place. But Veriz ask me, if I can post hands separately, because it is easier to evaluate hands. So I make that and keep name. But yes if woud be propriately to post hands with names like others did, I will do that. I doing that just because I just klick in subject and that name appear to me. But as I say if that is not ok to you I will post like anyone else.

      Crazy, crazy. Almost every hand that I am better is cracked in the end. I must admit that I don`t play my best poker for a while (take a look), so I must take a break and start over again, read some Psychology articles, go over all hands that I played badly, read all your evalutions of my hands and then start again on NL2. Right now I don`t have even a clue (totaly black out) how to play. I decide to start write down monthly goals. And here are some for November:

      - read some psychology articles

      - go over all hands that I play in Oktober and read all your evaloutions of my hands

      - start playing on NL2

      - get back to NL5

      - read all articles and watch all videos from NL beginners cours lessons 1, 2, 3 and 4.


      Ok I hope for better results next month
