      Hy, I´m chefchauen, moderator of the Hispanic Community.

      I want to improve my English so i´ll visit your forum a little bit more from now.

      I usually play MTT mainly up to 22$.

      I´m from Cordoba - Spain, in the South.

      I visited England 4 years ago and I liked it so much. I lived in Eastbourne and in London and learnt a lot of English, but now I´m forgetting it and I have to practice much more hahaha.

      Greetings and good luck!!! :)

      Greetings Chef and welcome!

      Have fun improving your English, it's a tough language even for us, so you must be doing something right already given the standard of your post!


      Good to have you here,

      Mal.

      Good morning and thank you so much!!!

      I´m completely sure that here I´ll be able to improve and learn a lot, tytyty.

      I´ve been playing poker for the last 4 years. It´s very difficult at all. At the begining I began playing cash NL2 in PartyPoker. Then I met PokerStrategy.com and the story changed drastically. I watched plenty of videos, strategy, coachings, etc, and I could beat some levels up to NL25. I got $2000 more than 2 or 3 times, but I always had to cash out almost all the money because I needed it. Great mistake. I couldn´t beat NL 50 bigstack ever, so I decided to move to MTT´s.

      Now I play tourneys up to 22$, but sometimes more expensive. I can say that I´m semi professional and all is going quite good.

      My best mark was in october of 2010 when I could beat a field of 8300 people and make a deal with the chip leader for $10580. It was in the 3.30R 60K Guaranted in Pokerstars. From that day I play MTT´s full time, between 20 - 40 each day. I love the tourneys.

      Sharkscope says that lukende (Me :tongue: ) has played 3800 MTT´s with 7 dolars of average buy-in, $7 average profit, and a total earnings of $22500 :D

      I´ve achieved a lot of Final Tables, I can´t count all of them, but I particulary think that I´ve had very bad luck at the end of the tourneys, but that should be the same than most of you too. Poker is so hard.

      I try to help everyone who needs it in the Spanish speaking community, whether the doubt is in MTT´s or whatever it is, and I´m trying to establish me in the Low and Mid level, and leave the Micros.

      This is a little summary. I have to say too that I´m a Physical Education teacher in Andalucía. I´m unemployed and waiting for a call that never comes to work at the school again, as I did last year in May and June.

      This is my blog in PokerStrategy.com. You can read all about me since I started playing poker. You can also read about other things, like exams, work, and whatever I do, but It´s in Spanish X(

      Nothing else, I hope you enjoy with my story.´ :P

      Everyone is invited to the Hispanic Community, and pswyatt, you can learn Spanish there too hahaha.

      This is the last hand I played. It was yesterday night, and I finish 98º / 4000. Do you see now what I´m telling you hahaha, they always hit the set at the end lol
