      So after understanding how entertaining and mostly motivating is blogging,I've finally decided to start my own blog.

      :club: Little things about myself :club:

      My name is Takis and I am from Greece.I am 20 years old and I am studying at a university in Athens.

      :club: Poker :club:

      I was playing poker online for about a year without any real success. However, playing online helped me to greatly improve as a poker player. So,now I think that I can show some profit and become a winning poker player.Right now I am playing at poker770 with my 3rd 50$ capital offered (ty pokerstrategy :f_love: ) and trying to clear a 54$ bonus.I have received the starting capital at November and at the beginning of the December (thanks to go4gold promotion) I've moved to Nl4.I am playing SH BSS.My main goal is to move up the limits and eventually make some money through poker.

      :spade: Short term goals

      Reach Nl50 during summer

      :spade: Long term goals

      Reach Nl100
      Make above 700e per month

      Current bankroll 144$

      First update didn't go well. Because of some coolers and some suckouts I ended up losing 13$. Never mind, I think that I played my normal game so I'm ok with that.

      So after another losing session and with a bankroll of 77$ (i've lost near 70$ playing nl4)
      I've decided to move back to nl2. I'm going to play until the bonus ends and then I will move to another site.

      Poker770's VIP program sucks for micros players.So, I was thinking of moving to an ongame site as they have nice first deposit bonuses and the micros players there are so bad (oh,and of course I will try to becoming better and better at poker =) )

      Running good at NL2 :f_biggrin:
      Today's stats (tag play at NL2 is very rewarding) :



      My bankroll now is at 94$. Even though I could take some shots again at NL4, I think it's more profitable continuing playing NL2 until I reach 30 buy-ins for NL4..

      Some nice hands from today's session:
