      Game: No limit Holdem


      Experie nce so far:
      + started with $50 bankroll 2-3 months ago at microstakes 0.01/0.002. bought both poker tracker and holdem manger. prefer to use poker tracker. completed my 15000th hand this week.gained some experience.
      + grind grind and more grind. reached $80 after some ups and downs. want to go higher but only after proper mindset ,knowledge and of course a bankroll.
      + studying engineering in grad school so math isnt really a problem and given some time i have and in future can develop some fairly complex simulations preferably in MATLAB.
      + love the game

      -ve not a very refined player in terms of winning percentage
      -ve limited ability to judge people , their hands and tricky spots.
      -ve get frustrated easily in two situations a). a long run of dry hands or board. b). making a correct play mathematically but getting knocked over by luck several times in a session
      -ve non existent situation instincts
      -ve impatience and sometimes unrealistic plans after an extraordinary profitable session(in % increase to bank roll).
      -ve overestimating some opponents
      -ve indecisiveness leading to a result known as ''FOLD''.

      and many minor things here and there

      Expectations and Plans:
      § to start to win at micro stakes accumulating valuable experience and temperament ------transition to 0.05/0.10 cents in maximum 3 months.
      § learn learn and learn more till decisions and discipline become 2nd nature.
      § break out of the habit of being slave to emotions.

      these are the main things I was able to pick out from a journal i maintain religiously. and this serves as my introduction to you. hope it was to the point and it helps to judge your future student better.

      Best of luck and best regards

      for most everyday stuff you can use equilab, it's pretty awesome

      when in doubt this is usually a good choice :)
