      well first of all im from norway so im not that good in english but i hope you understand.
      Im 23 years old and i have played on and of for about 5 years now and im just sick of loosing alot of money (I tilt very easy).

      My goal with this blog is to keep me motivated and to make sure to follow my guidelines.

      I will play SNG and some larger MTTs at poker stars and i will follow proper BRM, well probably i will play some MTTs out of the BRM plan.

      what i want from you guys is to give me some tips on what to add to my blog.
      give me some goals or something.

      BRM

      my starting BR is $165 so my first goal will be to get to $200 so i can start to play $3,50 STT and after that i will follow the normal 2% BRM rule.

      GUIDELINES

      this is what i will try to do every day.

      Welcome to the blogs section and good luck at the tables! You're English is just fine, don't worry about it. This is more like the international community rather than having only native speakers so don't be shy. :)

      well started clearing my guidelines, then i jumped to playing.
      it started pretty bad actually me loosing every coinflip and even alot of 70-30, so after i played 18 $1,5 STT i was down 11 buyins, then i watched my games in SNG wizard and i noticed that my pushes was right but i didnt push as many times as i should have, which made me blind out and loose, and my ev line was above my green line.
      so after this i opened 6 STT which i ended up ITM in all of them 1,1,2,3,3,3

      After finishing my guidelines i started playing a $5r mtt which was stupid because i lost $20 and that is totally out of my BRM, so after this i decided that i will not play any MTT atleast until i can get my winnings up.
      so i then started playing some STT and its not going good at all , im still running bad and loose pretty much every flip so i am below EV, so i hope it means that im just not lucky and it will change, and i probably have lots of leaks, so before i play any more i will watch one more movie (any suggestions). and go through icm trainer once more.

      ROI=-37
      ITM=26
      $WON= - 13

      Minus the $20 i lost in the MTT

      BR-UPDATE =$131

      so as usual i finished my homework before heading for the tables.
      i watched to videos today and i yhink its kind a hard to learn from them, exept from some small guidelines , so i will try too watch all movies over and over again hopefully picking up small edges.

      about icm trainer i try to look at every situation and repeat pushing ranges instead of rushing too get finished.

      i try too read articles, others blogs, but my weakness is posting hands.

      so for the playing part i have played 31 STT in total today, and a problem i have noticed that i have is that my playing style at the beginning of a session is weak, i tend to play too loose at the beginning but after a couple of hours i feel like a god but then i have already lost a couple of buyins, so from now on i will start every session playing super tight and loosen up a bit later.

      ]ROI= -10%
      ITM= 35%
      $WON= -4.92

      BR-UPDATE=$151
