      Hello everyone!
      I decided to make a poker blog aswell, in hopes that this could make me a better poker player.

      I am pretty young poker player from Estonia, my first language isn't english, so sorry about the mistakes I make, if something remains incomprehensible (hope this is the correct word) then feel free to ask. I started playing poker 4-5 years ago, on some weird site. I did pretty good there, so my interest in poker grew. Then I saw Pokerstars advertisements on TV, so I downloaded it. First few months I played with play money there, then I started going to freerolls, got some cents and builded my bankroll to total of 126$, which I made by playing 9 men 3.50$ SNGs. (it was 2008 I think). Then I found Pokerstrategy! With this sites help I reached total of 126$ bankroll, then I saw a video on youtube, where some guy played a tournament with buy-in of 1.10$, he won like 950$. I got really big interest in winning so much money at once aswell, so I went over to MTT's, unfortunately I did really bad there, my bankroll crashed to like 20$, thats the time where I quited playing poker. 2011 december I made a new account because I had forgotten the old accounts username and password.
      Again, I started playing with play chips, made around 16m in them, then I found that there are some freerolls, which I started playing with couple of mates. I did pretty good there on times, so I got some cents again, WOHOO! After geting some cents on 2012 January I think, I played 0.25 cent 45 men tournaments. After geting my bankroll to like 12$ I started playing 1.50$ sngs, where I made my bankroll to like 175$ in a month or so,
      then I decided to take shot on 3.50$s, where I did pretty good, now my bankroll is 383.35$, today I started adding some 7$ SNGs along with my 3.50$s.

      My username on Pokerstars is "Exceiient"

      Pic of my bankroll:



      My goals of this month will be:

      Be regular on 7$ sngs [ ]
      Read book called "SnG Strategy" [ ]
      Update this blog often [ ]

      Btw you said you played 45 man sng's is this all 45 mans or when you switched to 1.20s did you start playing 9 man? Just curious cos i've started the super micro 45 man games and loving them

      Why? $383 is like 54 BIs and if its Single table tournaments thats easy enough imo. If it is 45 mans then yeh sure maybe is a little loose i would prefer at the very least 75 Buy-ins for taking shouts myself to feel comfortable but each to their own i guess as long as you are prepared to move down pretty quick if things don't go to plan then go for it

      Didn't make a lot of money today but a little =) I feel like I can beat 7$'s pretty easily, not 100% sure yet tho because I haven't played too many of them. When I open tables I open two 7$'s and four 3.50$'s, just to not get too big swings.
      Running 10BI's below EV but it's cool I'm happy with the results =)

      Bankroll before: 383.35$
      Bankroll now: 389.56$
      Profit: 6.21$

      Running pretty bad, 40BI < EV, with average BI of 5.35$ this month. But I'm not worried :P Hope this swing will end soon! Once I reach 420$ BR I will only play 7$ normal speed sngs :)

      I've been busy so I haven't had time to write anything to blog, but now I got holiday!! for 1 week! I only played like 10 sessions of poker last 3 days, but my bankroll increased pretty nicely which I'm really happy about. I downloaded League of legends about 1 week ago, it's pretty fun, but I feel like poker is more important for me, so I'm trying not to spend too much time on there when I could play poker! I feel like I should put some goal for myself to play atleast x amount of sessions per day.

      Bankroll since last update: 345.19$
      Bankroll now: 383.34$
      Profit: 38.15$

      Once I reach 400$ I will start playing 7$'s again! Hope I'll do better on these then!

      I downloaded SNG Wizards free trial today, hope it will improve my skill;) I did the experts quiz for first time there, got 80 correct out of 100, so I definitely need to do it again until I'll do it for 95%+! I'll probably start posting some interesting hands on this blog aswell.
