      Hello everyone! My name is Alex and i'm 21 y.o.
      This month i played about 3k hands :facepalm: bcz i was quite busy :)
      Now i get some free time and the most good thing that i want to play poker and improve my poker skills!!! ;)
      So, first i want to show you my graphic for November:

      Just bad game i was playing + 3k hands is nothing! ;)
      As i'm going to do poker my profitable hobby, than i need to educate somehow and who can help me if i don't do it by myself!? :evil:

      In every business i like to create some purposes for not to be lazy and work hard to achieve some goal!
      I will put some of them here, in my blog:

      December 2012:

      * play a minimum of 40 000 hands
      * educate myself by reading articles on PS and one more specialized poker book
      * post at least 50 hands to be evaluated on PS
      * make every Sunday report about passing week
      * don't drink alkohol till the New Year 2013
      * to collect at least needed SP for gold status here

      What i would like to achieve more in December: to get my BR in PS about 25-26 BI for NL5 and to make some attempts to play this limit, and about 20-25 BI in Party poker for NL10.

      Starting to play on Poker Stars with 25 BI in NL2 and in Party poker with 25 BI NL4 :)

      Also, i will put some pic. from my life + stories and probably i will tell about my native country - Latvia ;)

      The best thing which i know is ---> don't give up when something is going wrong!!! :evil:

      PS. sorry for my mistakes in English, i haven't use it about 3-4 years :) my native is russian + latvian i know like a native :)

      peace ;)
