      Who am I???
      Michel and 35 years old (young as you wish). Living in the South-Netherlands near the German border. I’m married and have 3 kiddos. I work at a large building contractor as planner/engineer. It’s very a stressful job so to relax I play poker. :D Other hobbies are running (training for 10km) and watching soccer.

      My pokerlife.
      A year ago I started to playing poker for real money after lost some time playing with playmoney. I really find out that playing with playmoney has nothing to do with poker. Had a small roll on Party and tried to build this. But after some ups and downs I played around breakeven for a month or 8. I was not satisfied with this. If I do something I want to get better and I didn’t had the feeling that I was getting better. I was just playing some hands that I picked from a chart, paying no attention on position and had a very bad post-flop play. So I searched on the net and came on the PS site. This was really a blessing, tons of information, lots of helping people. And everything for free!!! Registered in November 2011 here and started blank on Betfair. Started to study a lot and my play did improve bit by bit. Untill the moment I had learned to much. Learned to much???? Yes!!! I learned everything what I could and learned many things in the wrong way. Once again I felt that things had to change so I went back to school. When I started with the beginners course my bankroll was around the starting capital. And I’m very proud that yesterday I’ve doubled my bankroll. I passed the $100 in my session.:D :D :D

      Why a blog????
      First off all every beginning player must ask to himself how he gets better. You have tons of documents, books and videos you can study and you’ll get better. But if you don’t use them correct then you can go easily the wrong way with the result that you’re playing bad and even go broke. To this last group of persons I belong(ed). I was eager to learn and did it a lot. Read lots of documents and watched videos here on PS. Tried to play SSS, MSS and BSS on full ring and shorthanded tables and stayed breakeven for 30k hands. I know it’s not a big sample but I felled things had to change if I wanted to be come a winning player. So I searched and found the beginners course, opened an own tread in the locker room and off I go. Since I’m doing this course and have some guidance in learning objects I feel my play improves drastically!!! :s_biggrin:

      What I’m gonna do/expect with this blog??
      Post some hands, on regular base some stats and graphs. Set goals and keep track. To improve more I hope that other members, who not look in the locker room, comment my thoughts and give me advice. Also sometimes there will be time for non-poker talk.

      If someone wants to know more about me feel free to add me in skype (leave first a message here to verify) or just ask it here. Hope I can make a interesting blog for everybody!!! Need only a catchy name.......

      I think tilt control is one of my strongest points I never abuse my computer. :D Always I'm quiet and try to play my best game. If I lose too much, 3-4 BI, I just quit. Don't react on the chat because I disabled it. Only thing when I sometimes tilt is when I'm winning I feel like superman then. :f_mad: But after 1 hand I lost and saw how stupid it was played the tilt is again to the background. :s_grin:

      For today I'm done just played a session of 344 hands and had a winrate 45.09bb/100. Seems that study and playing at 2 tables pay off for the moment. Tommorow I shall post some hands for you to judge.

      Tonight I also started reading Elements of Poker which I got from a friend. Very interesting stuff too read. I had tonigt already 2 pauses in my session it really clears the brain and when you are back you can play with a fresh mind.

      As promised some hands to evaluate. Hope to get feedback.

      Hand 1:
      PFR is standard here. On the flop I hit TPTK board is dry so betting for value here. Turncard doesn’t change very much. Think I’m still ahead so betting for value. On the river another Q. Villain check/raise me. What is the best line here? Calling against Qx or has he also have 2 pair??? How likely is it that he plays Qx??? Can I put him on QK, Q8, Q6 or is this to scared?

      Hey Michel,

      Nice to see you blogging. Most of the hands seem quite standard, one thing to remember is that if there is a fish in a pot and a big stack/regular 3bets you, don't always go all in, calling and allowing a fish to come along with his weak ace or bad pair is often the way to get good value rather than taking closer spots vs better players.

      The jacks hand seems standard, I usually call AJs+, KQ+ 88+ from these kind of shoves.

      The AK hand seems quite unlikely he has a Queen when he called the flop, if he did then he probably had 2 pair and would have raised on the turn, you're getting such a great price so just call and make a note about what hands he is calling on the flop after the hand.

      Pfffff just had an session, played 336 hands on 2 tables. For the 5th session on a row I was winning. :D Only this time the winrate was the lowest of all session 4.86 bb/100. My average in februar is still 34 bb/100 so nothing to worry.

      Only thing I worry is that I'm too tight for SH. Stats are now 13/11 (only 3k hands!!!) but I'm trying to loose things up a bit. I feel not confident enough to play according the sh orc-chart. So have made one myself that's a little bit tighter and prevents me to come postflop in difficult situations. Maybe I shall post my ORC this week here so you can judge it or fine tune it. :s_evil:

      An other thing I need to work on is when playing hands passive and when aggressive. Like this hand I play aggro against a very passive callingstation (80/0/1). Or is this hand well played?? I putted him on a Ax or Qx but didn't give him AK or AQ.

      Tommorow I don't poker (I think). Just gonna run outside if it's not to cold and study/review some hands. Keep you posted.

      Btw. When can/should I take shots on NL10??? I'm now almost have 15BI for NL10 or should I wait until 25BI and then switch complete? Maybe I must play first 4 tables NL4.

      Nice win rate so far :f_biggrin: keep on going!! =)

      I think it's better to wait until you have 25 BI.

      Reasons:

      - you said yourself you're playing nitty and you're not confident yet. I think it would be good to work on that and loosen up a little in a limit which you're used to. (It's ok to be nittier on NL4 than on other levels though, since the other players are much looser.. I think at least 18/15 would be good to reach tough at SHNL (I'm not a SH player though, so I'm just guessing here a little))

      - It's generally better to slowly increase tables on a limit than moving up too fast. So I'd recommend trying to play on 4 tables if you feel like it.

      - This depends on the poker site, but in general it's quite a big step from 4NL to 10NL, especially if 4NL is the lowest limit available. So better gaining confidence on NL4 than struggling on NL10.

      Nevertheless, your win rate indicates that you're crushing the limit :s_biggrin: so shot taking with 20BI is totally ok imo. But sticking to a 25BI BRM is usually a good idea.

      I thought I did never tilt but if I sit on a table with 2 maniacs that 3-bet everything. And when I shove with JJ and they show KK!!!!! Stupid maniacs cost me mine winnings today!!! ;(

      Today's more then 2 maniacs and I feel it's affecting me leave the table!!!

      Graph 3.5k hands.



      Next session it must go better. I still call to much if I know that I'm beat. Stats at the moment VPIP:13/PFR:11/Agf:2.4/H:3699 have to loosen up at lot. Today's session was 16/12/2.4. :)

      Last hand before I tilted complete and ended the session!!!

      Ok to calm a bit I yesterday read a piece in The Elements of Poker. Especially the first chapters:

      There's knowing how to quit at limit games, and there's knowing how to quit at no-limit. There's knowing how to quit when you have a curfew, and when you don't. There's being able to quit when you're ahead, and when you're stuck. There's quitting when you're feeling good, and when that doesn't happen, you need to know how to quit when you feel bad.


      Selfreflection:
      Yesterday I feeled happy, I was winning, I HAD TO QUIT. But I wanted more money, sat on a table with very bad players, overplayed my hands, lost a pot, tilted, I went to a losing session and quited too late with a bad feeling.

      Ok just played a session NL4 on Betfair. Winrate 20bb/100 so almost everthing went well, almost!!! I'm happy that I've broke the losing sessions I had the last 4 days.

      Victory of today is that I quited on time. I was up and on tables with fish but I just quited. Knowing tommorow there is another day. Then I shall put some hands in the forum to judge. Hope to get some usefull advice as always.

      Other thing I gonna do tommorow is study my play. So I don't know if I'm gonna play. Must also visited a match of my favorite soccerteam PSV. Will be very very very cold!!!!

      Graph didn't fit in the previous post. "Downswing" around 3500 hands was caused by tilt. I think I do a good job at the micros at the moment. My stats the last sessions are 20/18 this is much better then the beginning. But still there is much room for improvement. :f_biggrin:
