      So after thinking over again whether or not I should invest time in writing a blog and would it really be beneficial if i did it. I've decided to give it a go as i seem to be really losing focus in poker and distraction with other things.To be honest this is less for the readers and for me however i hope anyone who does get to read this drivel enjoys it :) . After being successful in a stake with a other Poker strategy member totte i was able to have a bankroll of 250 and I'm going to give NL10 A good go.

      Goals for This month (starting today 21st May And ending 21st of June)

      *-Show I can win at Nl5.
      -Complete 30,000 Hands.
      -Show i can Win at Nl10.
      -Write in Blog at Least every Day With one Interesting Hand.

      Thanks.

      Welcome and let's hope the blog does manage to keep you focused and well able to track your progress!

      Glad to hear your stake worked out well for both of you.

      Will you be doing NL10 on normal tables, or Zoom? SH or FR?

      Looking forward to interesting hands popping up!

      Regards,
      Richard

      Day 2 :

      Continue to fall in buyins and confidence starting to fall so before i lose any more i've decided to move down to NL5 and hopefully get back up to NL10 with more confidence . I will continue to play at least 1000 hands a day and keep up with the blog :)

      How i'm running at the moment

      Hero showed T Q and lost (-$5.28 net)


      Villians stats : 69VPR

      My thought process in this hand is when he bets so small on the flop hes trying to get a cheap turn with a flush draw, when the 8 Falls on the turn i think that he could possibly of hit the straight with the J-9. However on the turn when he bets again so small i decide to raise him to get an idea of wheare im at and with him just calling I knew it could not be J-9 As he would just re raise with the made straight so i thought the flushdraw was still a possibility. On the river with the reraises i thought either busted flush draw and playing a donk (possible at NL5) or hes hit a weaker two pair with flush draw.

      Now back on the Nl5 grind starting with a : Bankroll : 195

      you gave him very good odds actually :f_eek:

      after he donks .10 pot is .52... and you raise so that he only has to call .15! same on turn
      river is tough

      Nice, go get back in the green!

      On a side note, I'm reasonably certain both of those are the same hand.
