      Hello all, my name is Raivis and this is will be my poker blog :)
      Decided to give a try FR $3.5 SNG. Starting 'tight' with 100 Buy-ins hope it works for me. So depositing ~$350 last week and already try a little bit some luckboxing some badbeats feels ok. Playing only one table a time. Can't play even two cause can't concentrate only on poker. All time doing some shit @net at the same time. :< need to change that...k :f_o: :f_frown:



      Learning and developing plan for me is:
      [] Playing according to BRM and don't change limit/game type
      [] Read and understand all SNG strategy (silver lvl)
      [] Watch at least 10 videos per week
      [] Watch as many live coaching as I can (2 at least p/w)
      [] Read one book (p/2w)
      [] Post all trouble hands at forum

      And few things not poker related but I want to do:

      [] Gym at least 5 times a week
      [] Start eating healthier
      [] Stop smoking for evee
      [] aand limit alcohol to 4 beers max p/w

      :diamond: Starting bankroll: $357.90
      :heart: Current bankroll: $369.99
      :spade: Highest bankroll $369.99

      Ok Good Luck me at the tables :f_cool: and home everything go straight up for me till i be :s_cool:
