      Hey everybody who's gonna read this. I'm from Latvia, 23 years old So i'm another wannabe become rich by playing poker, because i don't like to work. Right now im working at Latvian National opera. also i have taken 2nd year of from university, that's long story, but im thinking that im going to try graduate it anyways. I'm a big music fan (listening from dubstep, house, hip hop, metal to opera and classic... :D ) also love sports, basketball my favorite. been playing poker for like 3 years. had some little success in live poker at local casino, and had cashing out from online too. BF kinda destroyed my whole summer plans, i was stupid enough to keep my whole roll on Fulltilt poker.
      PS gave me 70 euro to Poker heaven,so i started to play again. had to pay 140 euro in rake(did that) and had left 75euro, but i cashed out, hate that site. (Btw build there roll up to like 350 euro by playing hu sng, before tilted it away) Now I deposited at PKR.com, im going to play hu sng mainly, but going to play parallel some mtt and NL and plo cash games. im going to kinda aggressive brm. Pkr was the firsth site where i started to makes some extra cash by playing poker, so i decided to return there. this time going to take it all more seriously.

      Hmm what else...

      Ooooh and thanks Pokerstrategy.com. I have been here for a while, froma articles and videos i have learnd how to destroy my friends at homegames... :f_biggrin: and of course have learned a lot of other things too. Also been fallowing many blogs here for a long time. Let's hope my blog is going to live long.

      My br now 222.76$ at PKR. and limits what i will be playing will be 5$ and 10$ sng hu. probably going to take a 1buy in shot at 21$ sng every time i reach 300$br

      don't judge my english... :P

      Thank you for your time and good luck at tables!

      So today went well. Won some at plo10 and at hu sng10$. Can't give u any hands from PLO, because i have the cheapest holdem manager version for small stakes NL. :(
      There ar a lot of fishs at husng 10$ at pkr. too bad that traffic sometimes are low. I think im going to stick to playing 2 tables at time one HU sng and other PLO10 or NL10 table.

      there is one fish. had notes one him thats why made a call.

      against this guy i had played around 100 hands(when this hand happened) and he was foldin to my flop c bet like 30%, and his VP was almoust 90 at this hand. later he was stupid enough to sit again against me, so i got 2 more revenges. just so hard to belive his bets. :f_cry:

      wins $3,000

      So my thought process is when he min5bets me he got QQ+ or maybe Aj+. i think if he got like lover pocket pair than QQ he would 5bet all in, or the 3bet would be bigger at least 2.5x. So i get a good odds to call preflop, didn't wanted to go all in because it's 3rd hand and i thought i could find better spot to put all my chips in. So when flop comes he instant bet pot size, only one thing in my mind, he wants me to fold, so i put him on Aj+ and made a call, if he had a AA, KK or QQ he wouldn't had played so strong and only those 3 hands make sens how he played preflop.

      Br down to 251$ not happy about how i played PLO10, and things also didn't went my way at HU sng's.
