      Hey!
      For some time now wanted to start blogging but always something messed up my plans so now at Christmas day when I'm all joyful I decided to do it.

      I play HU SNGs, low stakes tho (5-20s). Will probably post some fun hands because on network where I play the fish:reg ratio is probably like 90:10. I see there some thing that I thought is not even possible :D

      No graphs for now, don't have HEM2 yet (am downloading trial version now).

      Anyways - I don't really know what to write in intros so yeah...
      If u have any question, please ask :)

      Oh, and of course - Merry Christmas!

      I like how 90% of players on my network think the best strategy is to limp every BTN and min3bet every BB

      Thanks, Roo. Hope you had a great Christmas too! :)

      I'm grinding out from a little downswing. Things are going ok-ish and I'm glad about that.
      Maybe will play some live poker today (I know, it's rigged :) ), will see.

      Tried to grind on iPoker today a bit. Well player pool is fishy, just like on my network. But the software is driving me mad. Really slow, probably won't play there because of that.

      The way I've been running lately is something incredible. Unfortunately - not in a good way... Oh, well. Need to grind it out.
      I said no to losing a long time ago :)

      Good luck with the HUSNG's! I played them a while myself at FTP. Mind sharing what network you're playing at? Those are some really nice hands you posted :s_biggrin:

      I think I will renew this blog. Firstly, I want to be a bit more active in this community but secondly - I have started to play bit more seriously again. I have 1k bonus to claim so need to grind up. Definitely will post some updates along the way.

      Welcome back to blogging Bacon!

      Looking forward to more frequent updates, but I'd say you're already a reasonably active part of the community, no? More is always better though, we approve of this!

      Just heard a great quote that I wanted to share:

      Yesterday didn't play much, was not a good day but that's fine. If I become frustrated by poker, I just think that I am so lucky that I don't have serious problems to worry about.

      Also Miami became NBA champions this past night. Although I dislike them, gotta respect for what they've done. They clearly were the best this year and Lebron was unstoppable.
