      hellou everyone ;D
      i have been reading news, forum and watching videos on this site for 6 months... i read blogs too, but never really tracked one... so here i am, creating this blog... dunno why... probably because i know noone who plays poker online...(freerolls doesnt count) :D ... my friends play freerolls so...
      I live in Belgium atm, moved to Belgium 1 month ago or so... i was born in Greece but moved to Bosnia when i was 3 (my parents divorced) so now im in Belgium with my mother and my stepfather... 6 months ago or something i started playing poker at some club, i really enjoyed it and started researching it on internet... at the beggining i watched pros playing cash games, i watched PAD, highstakes almost everyseason, watched the big game, partypoker premier league etc.. i found this site, watched alot of videos which have anything to do with NL holdem... watched even some omaha... but only basic stuff,since i cant watch or read any other... so i played freerolls as much as i could, finished 6th on bankrollmob site on some pokerstars leaderboards and got 12$... i knew every rule which beginner doest know, i respected my bankroll. after 1 month of playing my bankroll was on 150$... i played alot but not as much as i do now. then one day i went to my friends (students) in other city to stay couple of days... i played from there and lost all in 7 days... i was tilted the whole time, internet sucked, mice sucked, everything was different... i didnt realize back then that i am tilted but i was... i lost all, i felt sick.. its not like its bunch of money, but i just dont like to lose... who does anyway? so after that i started to watch and read all the time... tried to get many bonuses on every possible site... i even made ps account for my brother, mother and my stepfather to get 50$... but never really got it :D
      when i moved to belgium my stepfather asked me if i wanna play poker in casino... i said: "YES!"... theres just couple of things better than playing live poker :D ... so we went to casino in breda, he gave me 250e and said if i lose it doesnt matter, if i win we split 50/50..it sounded fine for me :D . i took a seat on 2/2 cash game... never played this big, my max was on 0.10/0,25 online :D ... but i must say, online guys who play those stakes would crush these guys.. i joined with 200e in chips, i left 50e so i can see whats up in coffee shops :D ... while i was playing my stepfather played roullete and poker vs dealer... hes a big time gambler... after 6 hours of playing i left the table with 470e... i kept 250 gave him 200 and we put 20e on number 17 in roullette... we missed. after 5 days or so we went back, this time i lost all... i lost all when i was all in with KK... some old guy had... guess what? but atleast this time i had time for a coffee shop visit :D spent 36e on weed and hash... i still had more than 150e, i was saving it to deposit on pokerstars. so we went again day or two later, and again, i lost all... the guy had 53 and i had 44 on 124 rainbow flop... so that was my last time i played cash games live, it was like 1 month ago... but i still had my 150e to deposit. but there was a problem... my country on pokerstars account was bosnia, and ps does not support local bank transfer for people from bosnia... i didnt have any card which i can deposit... so after sending them e-mails like 5 times so they can change my country to belgium, they finaly did it, and when i installed pokerstars.be it said: "your account has been suspended until 17.09.2013, until you reach 21"... belgium goverment doesnt approve gambling until you are 21... then i made an account on my stepfathers name... and finaly deposited 150e/190USD... it was like 3 weeks ago... i started playing tournaments and 1.5$ HU... i moved my bankroll to 250 very first day (i was running guuuud)... i then i kept playing and playing... my bankroll had ups and downs, but small downs and big ups :D ... i had 450 at one point... but since then i am just going down... i feel sick everyday when i finish my session... from 450$ my bankroll now is 226$... i lost too much... i played alot of tournaments but my best result is 8 place 121$... just one final table... i lost too much playing cash games (tilted)... played heads up sngs alot of them.. at one point i played 7$, but i moved back to 3.5$... where i OWN them.... i really mean that... they are so bad... but the problem is i get so bored after playing 10 of them... then i lose... today i played 300fpp bi sattelite for some 250$ sattelite and finished 3rd, won only fpps which i really dont care about...finished 3rd when i shoved from the small blind with K9off 10bb and the guy with 15bb woke up with AK... i felt really sick... i cant win a tournament.. never won any tournament... i opened this blog just because many of you know what they are talking about when it comes to poker... and i want really to say couple of words who understands what i am talking about... so this is it for now... i will still post at this blog, i still dont know how to post graphs so dont ask me for it :D

      here is just one hand... so you can see what happens to me whenever i go deep in the tournament.

      200 of 5k+ people left, 6k first price boomplayer hand , after 6 hours of playing i finished it like this.. btw i dont really think i am a pro poker player... i still am a fish... but i really think i have knowledge most fish dont... my main problem is sometimes i just get to emotional :D ... thats it for now... cya guys and really hope that someone will read the whole blog :D ...

      for the end

      Welcome to our blogging section!

      As mentioned, it gets a little tough to read when there are no paragraphs or linebreaks, but we'll power through!

      As tiltmeifyoucan said, a little effort goes a long way and is appreciated!

      Looking forward to reading more about your continued success and development though!

      just a little update to keep this blog alive... cause my bankroll seems to be dying

      currently 202$

      today i finished 21st in 1.5$ bi knockout turbo tournament, got only 15$... first price was 1k... i shoved from the button A3s and small blind woke up with AK... AGAIN.. flop came two spades but the turn and the river didnt help me xD

      played 0.02/0.05 ring games... and that didnt go well for me too... i really think i suck... i played 650 hands and -9$... it sounds terrible lol... all in all i am -190$ on cash games... lol.. it feels so embarrasing to even say it :D i played tilted many times... but it wont happen again

      anyway, heres one hand which happened today

      i will stick to the stngs and tournaments until i make some result, my tournaments stats +115$... so i guess i am not that big donk as i am playing ring games... i will really watch some videos, although i did, but not as much as i need to i guess... found some guy on youtube which has 40+ uploaded videos about zoom, ring games and stuffs like that... for me he seems to know what hes talking about...


      you will hear me again for sure... so cya until then :D

      first guy who shoved lost almost whole his stack just a hand before, so i knew he was steaming...after this guy called i started thinking... maybe this guy called him just because he knows that the first guy is steaming. so i may get rid of him and try to flip or anything with the first guy, or even if he calls ill hope he has something like AT, AJ, KQ, etc... so i shoved... and laughed after i saw his hand :D ... i was totaly wrong... and totaly stupid move :D

      i really need a break from poker... watched,read and played whole night.. fell a sleep at 4AM and woke up at 5AM, lol... had to help something to my stepfather... i almost got a heart attack there, came back home at 9AM and since then i was playing loool.

      after i finished this little tourney i felt like i need to share it with someone and realized i have a blog waiting for me! cya till the next time and hope that ill post some bigger 1st price pictures lol :D

      my bankroll now is 761$! i didnt want to post here till i get 1k but it may take too long xD

      i played everything that boosted my br. played 7$ sit n gos (HU, knockout and normal 9men), tournaments (not that much) and cash games at NL10 and as i jumped to 600 or something i went for NL16.... gave it a shot and it went well

      i diceded to stick with cash games in future... playing 4 tables at nl16

      after my losing month (may) -$138.52 over 6057 at NL10 i really thought i need to change something. and i did... read and watched some videos... not much but it really did help me. my results now are +26.11

      was at one point +~80 but had really tough last session but im really fine with overall result... still gonna play

      heres the overall graph

      http://oi49.tinypic.com/nejm2s.jpg
