      Hello !

      My name is Miklos (Nicolas in english), i live in Hungary. I am 29 and play poker for one year. My english is not the best in the world, but I hope, that you will understand what I want to say. I play FL 2$/4$ SH and i would like to post my hands to the english forum, because in Hungary there are only a few FL players. I hope this will not be a problem. I would really like to improve my game. I play a lot, 30-40k hands in a month.


      Good luck to everybody!

      It really sucks. Until this day I was 500 BB down, today I lost another 50 BB on 1$/2$. Unbelievable beats again. In 2008 I played more than 100.000 hands and lost 760$. I got a lot of bonuses, but what is this?! I am sure that I am a losing player and I don't even know why. Can variance be so huge?! Maybe I'm gonna work in a factory for 400-500$ /month (this is Hungary...), this is plus EV.

      As you said you went here to post hand so do that and coaches will help you find your leaks. And as i usually read suggestions reread some articles watch some coachings, videos and don't give up so soon ;)

      Hi Lizardy,

      I agree with slikec... Take some time off from playing poker, but concentrate more on theory and studying the game for a while. It will make u a better player and make you able to find your leaks, adjust your game, play better and eventually become a winning pokerplayer. Good luck!

      Hey there Lizardy,

      I just wanted to say that I miss you in the coachings. I see your status dropped, I do hope everything is alright with you and you just give poker a break.

      Take care and hope to hear from you,
