      Hello and welcome all to my blog!



      Who am I ?

      My name si Daniel and i am from Romania. I play poker for about 1 years now but in the last couple of mounts i started seriously to learn and play this game. I starded with 50$ from Pokerstrategy but playing out of BRM lead me to disaster.

      Poker :


      Now i m playng nl10 on Unibet. Afer a break and some witrawals i have a ~40 Bi bankroll. I revice a 100€ bonus to clear and as u know 30% RB.

      This is my graph on unibet for december:



      [B]
      Goals :[/B]

      Short Term:

      :diamond: To play Nl20 in 2012
      :diamond: To try play only my A-game
      :diamond: Improve my game and study
      :diamond: Learn english (as u can see my english sucks)
      :diamond: Make friends
      :diamond: More Volume -> 2k hand/day
      :diamond: Reduce Tilt
      :diamond: Reach Platinum on PS

      Mid Term:

      :diamond: To have a budget for private coaching
      :diamond: Reach Diamond Status on PS
      :diamond: Play NL50

      Long Term :

      That all for now, good luck at tables!

      Hey good luck with your goals! They seem thought out and reasonable. Also, some of the coaches here are very cheap and still very experienced. So maybe check them out here http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/board.php?boardid=1518 and you may get coaching sooner than you think!

      :)

      hello my friend :)

      i am also from romania :P

      it's very nice you set some goals for yourself; i couldnt do that yet, this is why my poker activity sucks all the time :(

      but you know that we romanians, we are proned to be very critical when concerning others; we are very keen on spotting slight mistakes all day in our activity so, a short glance on your goals made me see one such mistake . a goal should be something attainable , not impossible . if the goal is impossible it's no longer a goal, becomes A DREAM. a dream is also very nice but doesn't compare with a goal, isn't it ?

      you cannot have A game all the time that's impossible my friend. In your place i would change that point of your plan with the sentence

      not going on tilt more than once a week :s_cool:

      also i doubt you can reach platinum playing nl20 cash game; at that level of rakeback you can be a loser in the game and in profit overall :f_p: but again platinum is hardly possible at nl20

      please other members contradict me on this one if you have proofs

      ill get back to you

      good luck at the tables

      Platinum is possible at NL20. :)

      Your graph looks really solid. If it has the same form after 40k more hands you would definitely be ready to move up!

      Good luck!

      Hehe, for me 15-20 Bi down @nl10 is swingy. If it was nl200 it was a solid graph. :f_cool: :f_cool:

      I m using the trial of Tilt Breaker and is verry good for me. It s stop me playng to much on tilt. It's cost 50$, worth it? I saw that Hm2 has a similar program,no? I have to pay extra for that?

      I really like your graphs :D
      But I don't like your hands which you post...that's just bad beats more poker will u play more bad beats u will get...
      I advice you to take a shot @NL20 when you have 25bi for new limit...
      keep on crushing the game man! :)

      Hello,

      I had a really good day @tables. Pac Pac, in just 1k hands i was up to 6BI. Unfortunately i don t have time to play more hands beacause i had a party to get to.

      I dindin't win any huge pots, just once when i flop the nut straight vs mega fish who belived that TPnk is the mega nuts and raise me on flop. The red line is break-even and it reminds me when my red line was break even for 40k hands, nice dayssss :s_confused: :s_confused:

      5 more Bi and i ready to take my first shot to nl20.




      Maybe someone can help me with recomandations for study at nl20.
      GL!

      Update - NL20:

      My Volume suck's. And my game too. But i hope i will manage to beat this limit beacause is not hard but the pressure is bigger. After i will have like 10k hands i will make a proper update.
