      Hi my name is Boti

      I have been a profiting player since i registered here at pokerstrategy.
      I kindof wanted to do a blog since i saw the film Julie & Julia

      So my poker history is:

      Started playing at Titan, and went from 50 to about 600 in 3 months, thought i was the BOSS. Took my money out started playing live, i was winning at cashtables, and won a few live tourneys, untill the sharks learnt my game, which was SSS and basic tournament play.

      I helped out my parents with my winings and spent the rest on whores and cocaine, ok actually I spent the rest on my summer. And I was broke.

      Had a few attempts to make a new bankroll didnt work... Untill this spring when I started playing seriously. Started in february, set a goal of 2000 till the end of april starting with 50$. Andthenohmygod it worked:




      And then I started playing 10$ sng-s which was going well. I was thinking yeah, i could do this, live out of playing:




      Andthenohmygod, fulltilt stopped working. Luckilly I spent the money on finishing my uni studies and a new bmx, and I helped out my parents AGAIN, leaving 500$ to play 10$ sng-s, 500$ i hope to get back

      So summer again, broke again.

      And we arrive to now:

      turned out that one of my old clasmates is a small time loan shark So he staked me for 3 months, 200$ and i started grinding again 2 weeks ago.

      Besides poker

      I manage a band. The most awesomest awesome band ever(my brother is in it) Carnival

      I snowboard, ride bmx, and swim
      My short term goals are:

      :club: Improve my game
      :club: 1000$ a month

      My long term goals are:

      :club: Win WSOP
      :heart: Take Emma Watson on a date

      Do you really think earning $ really has even ANYTHING to do with whether Emma Watson will go with you on a date???

      Oh cute, a poker player with 1M. I will annex and add to my existing 17M.

      What kind of BMX style do you ride; Dirt, street, flatland etc? I used to ride back in highschool but haven't ridden in about 10 years... really miss it!

      Good Luck with your goals!

      Hey guys! Thanks for your interest :)

      Yeah i rode back in highschool too, but started riding again a few years ago, just for fun. I ride park, my bones can't handle street anymore and I'm afraid of dirt jumps.

      hackbinder I loled

      (Szia, igen magyar kosz a visszajelzest)

      Gerv, I accept your challenge sir :D

      I won the 4k with a 3.30$ rebuy, multyentry, rush, just everything u can imagine tournament, think I played 9 hours. After that I went to a party everytime i bought a beer I bought another one and gave it to a random person :) )

      Something to get amped up before playing:

      So I didn't really write about what I play.

      I think cash games are the shit, but most of the time i lose at them, as soon as i build a good br i want to start taking cash games more seriously.

      Now I mostly play sng-s and sometimes tourneys, the most $ in my life I made playing tourneys but they are soooooooooooooooo long. No i have to correct that the most $ I made was once pressing shift+4 a lot of times.

      So far it isn't going too well:



      As you can see the last 100 games was a pretty bad run of luck. I kept sucking out almost every time and running into monsters or very good cards when shoving from CO to SB. It was pretttty annoying, but when I got angry I went down stairs picked up an axe and started chopping wood lol

      But I have a felling that this week I am going to kick some ass.
