      Here we go! Good day for all pokerstrategy members.

      Like all other members I decided to start my own blog of poker. I must say not just poker. So for the beginning i would like to introduce my self.

      At the moment I am not fully satisfied student from Lithuania. Study are very hard this year, becouse it is the last year. But look, u are not a student if u cant find time for some partys? :] Right? Okey, lets go next. So I am 22 years old and I think this is the last best year as a freeman But we will see, maybe I am wrong.

      So now about my start at poker tables. Thanks for pokerstrategy and my fellow (he shows me this nice community) I started to find this game called no limit holdem (most popular and my favorite kind of poker :P ). About 2 years ago I received my starting capital and started to play. My start was at Everest poker, I dont know why, but it was. So after long long hours at micro cash tables I dubbled up starting capital, went to other poker room and so on. About 1 year ago I started to play MTT 45man sngs at pokerstars. Made some profit and later decided to cash it out. Now I think it was stupid, but okey, I left 40$ for the future And here we go, I am back at the tables. Now I fell okey to start from the lowest level of MTT's. Whis is not perfect time for come back, becouse of study at university, but I think i ll handle that.
      This time I am seriuos and this blog is a proof Like I used to say "Lets try, and we will see what ll happen next".

      I ll not set very particular goals, but for the biginning here is some. My exams will be finished at the and of January ( I really hope that :s_biggrin: )
      so after this, i ll have more time for playing and improving poker skills. For now I have one session a day. I fell combortable enough to play 12 tables at once so it is about 20 games per day. For now I have ~300 games played at 0.50$ 45man MTT. Like u know, I started from 40$. After that 300 games have some profit and I think it is good enough for the start

      Total BR: 78.21$
      Profit: 38.21$

      I know 300 MTTs are not much, but this level is very easy to beat and I dont need to tell this for u buddys :s_biggrin:

      For the end, blog name inspiration well know and one of the best all time bands AC/DC! <blog name changed>

      Okey, I hope u didnt get bored reading this. Till the next time ladys and gentlemans!



      It's all about love! :f_thumbsup:

      Stripofbacon, Yeahh AC/DC took control of your brain! :D

      I had exam today. Something about it. I am studing "Roads and Railways engineering" and i do not understand why I need to study law?! Okey, maybe we need something, but not the fucking 500p. book of law!
      Anyway, I kope I pass it :evil:
      So after exam I took small session. Really wanted to play and it was nice:) Master in HU :s_biggrin:



      Want to ask about PS 1$ 45man non turbos, because never played non turbos ?( Big difference of 0.5man and 1.5 45man turbos?

      Coming to my hometown today, so no more game this day, need to take some whisky with my mates :f_grin: God I love Irish! But I am crazy about Jack much more!! :tongue:



      Sip tells everything! :heart:

      One more thing, I think i ll paste my lifetime graph then I ll reach 500 games for full progress info :)

      Have a nice friday!

      Saliut!

      After friday I got sick X( not because too much whisky, but I get cold somehow ?( So this evening diceded to stay at home and join fish pool. Beginning was very bad.. I run into a lot of runners and overpairs, guess everybody does :) But finally I ended it nice :)

      Like allways i ll post daily details.



      I am taking a breake now and do not know if i ll play more this evening.

      But I really want to come as close as possible to my first goal, so it is posibility to run some more games tonight :) U can not win if u do not play, is it right?:)

      For the end i want to share one amazing youtube guy with magic voice! He makes the best covers I have aver seen. I wish u ll like it!

      I changed blog name again. It happens because this day. So here we gooooo!

      I played 40 games today, and what do u think? No profit! :D I think it was time for this :) In the past i played lot of micros, but never saw such a horrible things :)

      So about today play. The main reason why I didn't get profit is because I lost almost every PP (I speak about preflop game). It was hard to look then Don... hit sets every time. Ok sometimes shit happens :f_eek: So for summary I think I can tell that I was unlucky :)

      U can say maybe it happend because I do not know push range very well. But I think I know it not bad. ICM trainer is good and free stuff so I use it often. Have ~95% in ~400 hands. One more thing, i use a little bit looser push range in 50ct MT sngs. Just because Don Quixotes like to call with any two cards :)

      I am still very motivated for my first goal and going for it faster than I thought :)

      Today I wonder how fish calling 75BB allin with T5s must look like. And I believe it looks like this old man which do not understand whats happening :s_confused:

      I want to say goodbay for this month. It is sad but in other hand I ll be back with more passion :D It is winter holidays and I am backing to my home town. I think it will be great to meet my old friends because everyone is backing home during Christmas :)

      This month brings me some profit at this lovest limits of MT sngs. Like U know I had 2-3 hours per day to play, so I think next year we will see more action at the tables with Vain1s ahead :s_biggrin: Downloaded lot of videos from PS video section to watch them again and find my leaks. I want to be ready for my come back :)

      So my blog does not have lot of followers but it is ok, I think here will be more than I beat micros =) (I realy hope I will). Sharing my ~500 games graph like I promised.



      I wish U all happy holidays and the bigest run in 2012! Cheers! :s_wink:
