      Hi, I'm Denislav, 19 years old from Sofia, Bulgaria. I started playing poker a little more than two years, but seriously I got the game early this year. I love 6-max cash games, so try to develop my game in this format.

      Basically I have a blog in Bulgarian community, but I decided to do this here, because I think this community is much larger than ours and I get more advice and opinions, so I can improve my game.


      Outside of poker, I love all kinds of sports but mostly football. When I was younger I trained handball, and until two years ago I practiced football. Currently about 4 months, I actively go to the gym. Also I love listening to music - house, trance, hip-hop, pop, dance and sometimes rock.

      Currently as you know, are the finals of Euro 2012. My country failed to qualify for this tournament, so I support Germany as the team has eight players who play in my favorite club team - Bayern München.



      Over the past two months I had little time to play, and I run bad, but my next goals are:

      :diamond: to improve my game

      :club: to reach the Mid Stakes

      :heart: to become a professional poker player

      In the next month I will not have much time to play, so you will not be set to target a number of hands. but by August, would have the short-term goals.


      I forgot to say that I play 10NL at Ongame. And you can call me Denny.



      My English is very bad, so use google translator to be able to write posts here. I will ask you to excuse me for some mistakes.







      Regards,

      I dont like my c-bet here, because the opponent is a fish and would hardly be refused the hand often enough, but the turn was lucky with this Q.

      Otherwise, a good quarter finals get between Germany and Greece. I just hope the Germans to realize most of scoring opportunities against Portugal and Spain, that against such teams are not allowed error.
