      Hello,

      My name is Razvan, i`m 19, and live in Romania. I started this blog to mark a new start in my poker career, keep track of my progress, visualize my goals and because I can improve my game faster with your help. I won`t bore you with my fishy experience from the past. I will play SNG and MTT.


      I currently play on PartyPoker and William Hill – 100$ Pokerstrategy Freeroll. Why do I started with freerolls ? Because i`ve got nothing to lose (except time), and I think they are great for “laying the foundation for my bankroll, gaining tournament experience “ (LGrant) .


      Short-term goals:
      :spade: watch all videos from my level
      :diamond: SNG 3/47
      :diamond: MTT 6/10
      :diamond: PSY 11/11
      :spade: read all articles from my level
      :diamond: SNG 0/16
      :diamond: MTT 0/8
      :diamond: PSY 0/20
      :diamond: OTH 0/18
      :spade: play at least 1 freeroll on each site a day
      :diamond: try to finish ITM
      :spade: never miss SNG/MTT coaching

      Good luck on that very very long way to the BM. There will be many rocks, many fishes, many elephants, sharks and snakes on the street. I guess you wont even see mouses on your way....

      well good luck again.

      after 3h of play i decided to push with A9o from SB, against a player 4x my stack who raised 2BB, :f_mad: , AKo and the tournament was over. I realized what a shitty play just after i hit the all in button.

      Conclusion: Need to work on my patience.

      A funny thing happened yesterday, i logged in my PartyPoker account and i had no money ... because PartyPoker decided that i was not active enogh so they just removed my 0.72$ won in freerolls. :f_confused: so 19 days and 38 mtt were all in vain .... PartyPoker deleted from my computer !



      I won 60$ on a freeroll on Dracula Poker, and i stared playing SNG there, my goal is to build a bankroll , improve my game and then move my BR to William Hill so i can gain strategy points and be a step closer to my BIG GOAL.






      Short-term goals: ( 1 DEC 2011 )

      :diamond: 300 ICM/ day
      :diamond: a video / day
      :diamond: never miss a coaching
      :diamond: Buy a Iphone4
      :diamond: Move from Dracula Poker to WH

      Hi Skeepe, good luck with your goals.
      With a $60 bank roll you could play the 10c 360 mtsngs on Stars and you could multi table these as they run every 5 mins or so.
      cheers Gordy

      Took gordy`s advice and deposited 10$ on stars , my stars account is tracked by PS so it was the best thing to do. This lead to a challenge:

      i call it the 10Days CHALLENGE :
      -my plan is to make 2vpp/day which means 1sp/day + 10sp promotion = 11sp/day so i will be a silver player in 21 DEC 2011.

      Pokerstars BR: $30.28
      I`m playing 1$ sng , and occasionally some 1$ 90people sng knockout

      On the other hand on dracula something beautiful happened, i have to thank Kill Phil for that. :D

      + I bought PokerTracker 3 , looking forward for upgrade to PT4 , and i`m looking for some MTT Huds , mine is rather simple.
      + I started using SNG wizard trial , i will buy it when i cashout from Dracula
