      Hola! Tervehdys! Hello! Yεια!

      I have been in sidetrack, but I have seen now some changing on me. I am changing to wholly a new person. And that is good thing. I am only 18 years old, and got my hole life ahead me. I promise now to my self that I will do anything that it´s needed to achieve my dreams. I mean everything! Purpose of my life is to do my dreams come true.

      I am at the moment playing only for fun, maybe it will continue like that too. I am not winning player at poker, I try to develop my self still and minimize cost of my poker hobby. I love poker, the mentality, the spiritual part and many other things that is part of "poker". Poker has and will change me as human being! That is the most coolest part of it. I would not be this person who I am without never joining the "poker world"! I am changing as a person every day! This is just the beginning of my life story! Cool things will happen and more changes will happen! I will come familiar with psychological and math mathematical side of poker!

      At the moment I am living in Spain, (A Coruña). I am from finland and at the moment I am doing an internship here at local hotel. I am living with 3 beautiful Greek woman (lucky me). I cant describe with words how wonderful the life has been here! The people, The city, The food, partys and everything!

      I have done some mistakes in my life and I have learned from them. I was wanna be poker pro. My sense of money was lost and now I am trying to understand the worth of money again. Money is not the main thing in the life. I have understood it now. I had dreams, and goals. I had good mindset but then something came and destroyed me. Now I am coming to my senses and I am creating my self again. For some reasons I have never before have balls to be who I real am!

      just close your eyes and listen:

      This blog will be little bit different then others. Read or don´t read, I don´t care.I am not going to speak much about poker. I will focus on writing my thoughts and writing something about my life. What kind of life I have lived, I live and what kind of life I want to live. More shit text coming on next post. I am writing to myself. Reading my own writings I can realize something new. I am growing up.

      The hand that woked me up

      Very shameful hand, but because of it I realize where I stand! I realize that I was lost. Not only in the tables, but in life too.

      Every decision was the most awful decision that is possible to made! The betsize and everything...

      Yea, Every time I feel unlucky I just look that hand. It really helps! There is no excuses anymore. I cant blame the bad luck with losses. That hand was very profitable to me. That hand tells me truth! I am so lucky guy and I am really really fish. completely true!

      I am not going to play much poker here in Spain. Why should I? No reasons! I am living the dream at the moment so no point. I have been playing NL500 cash games at the local Casino, but no more! I quit now before it is too late!

      I will play sometimes some micro stakes at internet (when I have hangover and I cant do anything else (meaning I am playing almost everyday))

      I play mainly Heads up cash games. And after every opponent I will put everything on paper and create a profile. How the opponent plays, does he think and does he adjust his game. Many other things also. How I should play against him etc... And hand analysis after session. I will play only randomly like 30min at the time or something like that. very fast sessions. I start from beginning now. From NL4 and starting studying the basics first!

      I started to read Collin Moshman Heads up book and I think it is worth it. The start of the book was like written just for me! it´s so nice to go to the terrace and sit down and have a cold drink and read that book. It´s the best book that I have read so far. And I am not just reading it!

      I need to study the Spanish language very hard! I think I can say I love Spain already? I have been here week and couple days and it´s wonderful country! Also Greek, Portuguese and Italian people are very very cool! I am also ofc joined Spanish language course.

      Maybe I will running good because today I was in the bus and it was very full. Young boy something like 12 years old or something like that came to the bus and tried to buy a ticket but his bus card didn't work and bus was already moving. The driver tried to get the card working, but it didn't work. I was looking the situation and waiting if he takes some money from wallet or something, but it seemed that he didn't have money. Many people saw that situation but no 1 standed up. So I offered money to the boy that he could pay the bus and he took the money and gave it to the driver. What if I would not have done that? but anyways I got good feeling about that :f_grin:

      I wanted to test is it possible to get lost there so I went there and tried to get lost and try to find my way back. After 5 minutes to just walked different ways there I started to try find away from there. After 15 minutes I started to swearing and after 40minutes I founded my way out from there... It seemed to be good idea, but it wasn't :f_mad:

      Nothing special in today session. Played couple big spots without thinking. Easy fold situation came and I did not fold. I was not able to let go Top pair. But I didn't think in that spot much, that was the mistake! More thinking when playing! AQo vs JJ PF all in. All in PF in micro HU I think it is -EV. But the reason for that all in was for getting information how lose the opponent goes all in. Does he goes with like 99+? But overally -EV in long run that all in. AQ/88-TT how I should play them in micro hu tables against villain we dont know? I have to keep my thinking all the time in the tables. Skype, Facebook, browser, everything off! Then was another flip, (-EV in the long run) I lost the hand where I should fold and wonned these 2 flips. +1bin

      Is there any good free software that I could use to record my game and voice? So I could past it to my friends to analyse it?

      I would like very much to win couple hundred bucks and buy something special from here in Spain. I need just 1 real fishy opponent. 1 night (not long ago, couple weeks ago) I was sitting in NL10 when Finnish guy came to play against me and here is the results; I hope I can do it again soon, because the couple hundred bucks would do very good for me;

      It ends here. I am not going to play anymore poker with more then 0.10/0.10 blinds. Maybe someday again.

      I eat unhealthy. I eat fast foods every day and if I make some food my own it is just french fries and some meat (easy food). Also I don´t eat enough. I have to learn to cook my self and I should also know what kind of food I have to eat. I have to read some food things from internet and search some good recipes.

      Drinking is maybe a problem too. There is no need to drink to have fun. I don´t have to stop drinking (I am not alcoholic) so the best option is to drink less. Not like every day in weekend and when I am drinking I am not going to drink much.

      I will start again to visit gym soon, at the moment I don´t have time to go there. And I am everyday very tired. Like right now. I will go sleep after I post this. I want to be in good shape

      I spend more money than I can afford. I don´t respect money anymore. I was so happy when I cleaned my grandmother mats and vacuum her apartment and I earned 20€. Now I can call 1 000€ all in with crap hand without understanding how valuable that money can be to me. Overall high stake games in Spain is now +- 0. I just played too big games. But it was fun but it ends now. I am just poor student from Finland.

      I also spend much money on drinking. I go shop to buy food I come back without food and bags full of liquor. But my situation is not bad, it can sound very bad but it´s not. I am a smart guy, I know where I am going and what things I have to change. This cant go like this for long. I withdraw my bankroll so I can live here freely. Use taxis, bus and eat, drink, buy something nice and like join a gym. It´s also very fun thing when you are looking something in a shop and it cost like 10€ and you don't like the price, then back home you lose like 50€ with some stupid spew game

      I deposit 30€ to stars and I will be playing plo2 stakes for now just for fun. (I choose stars because there is good traffic) I would like to buy someday house or big apartment from abroad (somewhere else then Finland) I want to live abroad and for that you need money and for that you need work. Poker would be perfect work. But I prefer safety and I will keep poker just for an hobby. I just like poker and the hole industry so much. I should go working for poker industry. It´s something that I could spend my life with. Micro grinder for ever. It´s not about the stakes I just love the game.

      I am developing as human being every day. I see that my self also. My mindset is now very different. I think new things that before I would never even consider. I am really creating my self as human being. I can even see the change that has happen and this is just beginning of this.

      So I have to do something about my eating habits, start again doing sport, return my respect to money, keep developing my self as human being and keep studying Spanish

      Money, Poker and Drinking are not everything in the world. There are so many beautiful things in the world!

      In the next post I will have a look about the good things in my life. In this post I just putted things I have to change because living like that way is not good in the end. here is a stupid example to describe my life style you earn 2 000€ in a month and you drive with 50 000€ car and you have 5 000€" plasma TV and that kind of things. You could also drive with cheap nice car. You can buy used car and tuning it with like 5grand maybe less or more but it will be very awesome car. And look the movies from smaller TV also. Or just go near bar to watch the football game if you prefer big screens.

      !I just love to live!
      !Life is wonderful!
      !Just Join every day and every hour you have!

      What is life?

      Life is full of questions. Every people are different. Their personality and way how they think. Nothing goes perfectly, You have ups and downs in your life like in poker. Enjoy your life!

      Our decisions effects more in our life then we think. It is very good sometimes to sit down and think about your own life and what you want. We usually do our decisions very fast. Everything depends on everything just like in poker. What kind players are in the table, What position you have and what imago etc. This is 1 reason why I love poker. It has so many similar things with life.

      They deal cards to us. We cant choose the cards, but we can choose how to play those cards. We can choose the table we play and where we play. We cant choose place where we born. Our environment when we are kids. We cant choose the game, but we can choose how to play it

      We grow up little bit and we are now teenagers. High risk age. Easy to expose dangerous things. This is the age we probably start smoking and after we are adults we feel bad that we even started it. Just an example. We do our big decisions when we are teenagers. Easy age to ruin our future. We get a driver license and we drive +200km/h in 80km/h road.

      The environment, people around you, TV/Movies affects you very strongly. Usually You don't even understand how much. And we can´t do anything about that because we think so differently in these ages. Our parents do the decisions for us. And then we are living in the place we would not like to live. And we want to move somewhere. But we need money for that. And we can start do crimes for easy money, or go work, but you have to live and work first in the place you would not like to live. Or play poker and loose your money and live and die in the place you don't like. Or just buy a flight ticket with your last money and never come back. I would take the last option if I have to choose. (flight ticket and never come back). We start working and someday we see that we are stuck in the job and the place we don't like to live. Why to try change every human being in the world when you can just change 1 person? (you self)

      My childhood was difficult. But It is past now and with memories I continue my life. Memories are very important. We have to have memories! Protect your memories on all costs! Someday is too late to do something. You are lying in hospital bed and you can never anymore go out freely. What you have? Only your memories!

      I was too afraid to be the person I really am. But I am not afraid anymore. I never gave up. Or should I live next 50 years or less with gloves on the floor? I am now 18 years old and I want to live a real life! I can do it! I just have to do it now! How? I don't know, but I will find out!

      I just don´t care anything else than to be happy. When I go back Finland I will stay there couple weeks and then I will buy a flight ticket to some country and I will take my laptop and 1 bag with cloths and somethings I need. I will just live in the streets and playing 0.02 or 0.04 stakes in the close coffee shops playing through wi-fi to get little bit money to food. Maybe I start respect money again. We have only 1 life and why I would not do something like this? 1 thing is sure and it is this; I will not stay in Finland for long! I live in the streets in abroad if there is nothing else. I just like to do stupid things and something crazy. And that would be 1 crazy thing to do.

      Let´s see what is going to happend, but I enjoy the life at the moment. Life is just so fucking wondeful! For real!

      There is also something I miss in my life, but I don't know yet what it is. Maybe I know someday (hopefully not too late)

      I said in the last post I will tell some good things about my life but well I don´t care anything else than I am free and I am just so happy. I can do what ever I want with my life.

      My English is not so good so the text does not give the exactly picture what I am thinking or trying to say, but I don´t care, I just write something.

      You can always just leave the life and start new life.

      ~Don´t be afraid to do anything~
      ~Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams~

      Just so beatiful song;

      ps: I think I am out of mind but I dont care :tongue:

      I had 0.97$ in Pokerstars so I started play with it.

      First I played NL2 because I was not able to join Zoom tables because 1$ minimum buy in. After my roll was 1$ I opened Zoom table.

      It´s little bit funny to play first NL500 and NL1k and after that start playing NL2

      First time I played Zoom and I liked it. No need for many tables because there is fast hands. I like this! Let´s continue with Zoom.

      AA vs KK Pre-flop all in. Wonned and played correctly. But std cooler. Sometime I will have KK vs AA. No can do.

      AQs vs KK Pre-flop all in. Didn´t play correctly. I open 3x and villain goes all in. Effective stacks 1$ but still. And I wonned.

      And couple more actions, but my hand history failed :f_frown:

      I did not have the X on the save my hand history so no can do :f_frown: next session then.

      I have started to respect money little bit more. I have to buy everything now my self. Food and everything and it is expensive.

      First goal about poker is to buy new shoes. My shoes are literally dead. Everyday I just dream about new shoes.

      Living is expensive. I have started to look more about the food I eat. More meat and fruits!!!! No more Fast foods, maybe sometimes but not often. Eat more times in a day so maybe I grew up little bit. I will have a look about the local gym prices when I have time. I have to live with these money I have for 2 months here so I have to think what I buy. I think after 2 months my big bad habits are gone. I am going to do some kind of training program to my self.

      I was ready to deposit 30€ but maybe I don´t need. I can use that money for something else :coolface:

      I think I will this way respect money more and more. That is very very good!

      Tomorrow plan; Beach, Lying in the sand and reading poker book, listening good music, watching the view ;) )) and maybe go swim.

      I have earned now 2€ tips in my work!!! And I like the work. It is a dream job!

      ~Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive~

      ~The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes~

      We have turned 1$ to 10$!

      Tomorrow going to post some hands and my analys about them

      I did many mistakes in the session also. We maybe also overplayed JJ in couple pots. We will have a look the hands tomorrow (or next time I have time) I tried to do some fancy plays, but I should not try to do those. Just keep things simple.

      Good start! Let´s keep going! The most hardest part is to handle the bad runs!

      I hope I get the new shoes soon, because my shoes are so "worn out" pretty word to describe my shoes :D

      Next session is not going start before I have posted hand analys to my blog!

      Zoom, so I don´t have any information about the villain. After he reraise to 0.52$ I should only call and watch the flop. But If the flop is Axx and villain check I should check also behind not try to steal it or what? If he has the over pair like QQ/KK he aint folding it. After the Flop is 974 I should go all in? Or play like I played and shoved and trust the fold equity? What he has? I think most of the time big pocket pair QQ+.

      Fun time & Spanish studying Combine every day, all day long!

      Little bit volume on my Spanish study and it´s good!

      1 more time. Spanish people. I have never met so nice people then Spanish people. The only problem is that nobody speak English. Why change every Spanish people to talk English when you can change only 1 person to speak Spanish? To me the language is very hard but I will learn it :D

      I had very hot run again. But let´s concentrate to handle the downswing that is waiting us behind the corner.

      In the beginning I always run golden, but the end is never pretty. Downswing or Upswing does not look the stakes, it looks the blinds right? So after really hot run you try to have shots in bigger stakes and then you lose, Has this happen to you?

      Tomorrow Hand analys and in the night new session! Cya!

      Flop: 6:heart: 7:diamond: 7:spade: ($0.17, 2 players)
      BustoTinker checks, UTG bets $0.08, BustoTinker raises to $0.34, UTG goes all-in $3.99, BustoTinker goes all-in $0.90

      Stinks very badly. Should be fold against the shove. What he holds is only AJs+ and bigger pocket pairs then ours.

      Turn: 6:club: ($2.65, 2 players, 2 all-in)

      River: K:club: ($2.65, 2 players, 2 all-in)

      Final Pot: $2.65
      BustoTinker shows two pair, Eights and Sevens
      8:heart: 8:spade:
      UTG shows a full house, Kings full of Sevens
      K:spade: K:heart:

      UTG wins $5.31 (net +$1.24)

      BustoTinker lost $1.32

      There was nothing special. Many mistakes, but very standard mistakes. I have to start take them down 1 by 1. AK I havent invested money in the pot some 1 goes all in. -EV to call especially because the rake? Over play middle pairs like 77 - 99. I will follow villains bet size more also. Play more buttons.

      Just keep FOLD, FOLD and FOLD and you will beat NL2-NL5 at least. Position, just fold the KJ from CO if UTG opens, keep it simple. And more volume. I cant play 10 tables at the same time, but the same amount of hands comes with Zoom 4 table in 1hour.

      I posted a little project blog to Spanish blog section. My goal is that way also improve my Spanish language skill.

      I have started to play now NL5 ZOOM also. 50bb short stackking it!

      I could put more volume. I am playing 4 tables right now, but I could do 6 or could I? I will try out; 4 table NL2 and 2 tables NL5 let see how I play. What kind of mistakes I do when I play 6 tables.

      I am little bit afraid my coming downswing. I hope I can handle it good and continue the good game!

      I did not think much to day what to do with my FPP points, but I will concentrate little bit more to my FPP points after I have good time.

      I did a bet with friend of mine. Next Friday starts. We play 10k hands both Zoom poker. And he who has wonned more big blinds is the winner. And the loser has to pay up his winnings to the winner. Not big cash bet but just competition :D

      example; I have wonned 1 000 big blinds and he has wonned 800 big blinds. He pays me 800 big blinds. And our rate is only NL2 so he pays me 16€.

      Today I am going to grind enough hands, so I have done my first 10k hands.

      In the weekend I will grind another 10k for the competition.

      And then I can buy new shoes hopefully.

      After that I will start new project. And the project is;


      Micro stakes for me is; NL2 - NL20/NL30

      I assume my winrate. I don´t know what my winrate really is. Also I haven´t calculate any returns/bonuses with these calculates so result can be bigger or smaller. Do you think this is realistic?

      I will play 100K hands in 20days in April. 10 Days will be non poker. 4,5K hands in a day. 4,5h in a day. Nothing is exactly only estimates. And 20 x 4,5k is 90K but I will play that ~ 100K

      here you see what is my goal to win; I assume my winrate will be that 10bb/100. In the end I can´t say for sure how much I will be up or down because I will go playing NL10 after I win 150$

      WinRate / NL5 / NL10 / NL20
      5bb/100 / 250 / 500 / 1 000
      10bb/100 / 500 / 1 000 / 2 000
      15bb/100 / 750 / 1 500 / 3 000
      20bb/100 /1000 / 2 000 / 4 000

      Also I am not going to have hyper aggro or super aggro BRM, but aggressive BRM still! I just play what I feel good about playing!

      I will short stackking 50bb and 4 tabling Zoom No limit Holdem 6max.

      I am not going to review my hands, sometimes if something intresting comes up but I don´t have time to do that right now. I am still studying poker other ways. And when I go back Finland I take the session reviews again.

      $/h is impossible to even estimate, because I will be playing different stakes depends how big my bankroll is.

      I will have a look win rate things and how I can raise it up.

      In 2 months I will have 1,5K$ bankroll!

      So the goal is to play 100K hands every month until we are rolled to +NL50 Deep stäck

      ~In the end, we cant affect the results~

      Poker is the backdoor to my dreams or is it?

      My mindset is disappearing with the results again. Let´s do something about this!

      Yea I had good run, but still this thing was going to the wrong direction. But after coming down I understood that :f_frown:

      Forget the project beat the hell out from micro stakes!

      New project; New personality

      1. My goal with hands is to play 10K hands every week. In the end of April I will have played 50K hands! We put always goal how much we have to play minimum, I will put now Maximum and it is 10 000 hands in 1 week! too much hands/hours with computer is too much for me! That is the way I lose my life mindset!

      2. Don´t watch the results. After I have played 10K hands I will post the results here. Don´t look EV or anything from the Hem! Just watch the hands you have played!

      3. Hand review after every session! And Post some hands with explanation! This is very very important!

      4. I am going to play with 20Bin BRM for now. I can join NL10 with 5$ stack when I have 100$ bankroll. Sometimes playing full stack and sometimes short stack. Wish me goodluck with this!

      5. Read other players blogs and read also articles/chats everything! Chat with other poker players!!! Physiology & Math :heart:

      6. Every decision you do; Fold/Call/Raise/Reraise/Check need to have explanation! Watch the screen and concentrate! Justify every action you do!

      7. Less music and more THINKING! THINKING THINKING!

      8. Don´t waste much time with poker, keep it simple and hobby only!

      9. Develop your self as human being and at the same time you will be develop as poker player!

      10. Follow these 10 guides!

      Beat, Beat, Bad play, Beat, Bad play, Bad play = -6 buy in
      Beat, Beat, beat = -3 buy in

      I will be post more writings after I release something new

      It is different thing to write or say something then do the things you say/write! But I don´t have a choice! The most difficult opponent is me. I am myself my worst enemy!

      I am again going to good direction in my mind, Growing up as human being. I have a long trip to walk, but I have done my decision now! No possibility to throw gloves down and live the rest of my life (50 years) with gloves on the floor!

      Guesses how big I can turn my 1$? Bonuses and returns are ofc added to the amount!
