      I want to post something about my play, because it is getting worst with every day. A month ago I was playing with success NL25 on stars today I barely manage to be winning player at NL4 on ipoker. I made few mistakes, the main one would be I stopped learning the game and analyzing my hand history. I want to change something now. But it’s hard without any motivation so I start this blog. Maybe you will read it maybe not but it’s always helpful to improve something if someone is observing you. Beside it’s always good to see how am I progressing.

      Back to business I made my last withdrawal yesterday (it was my second mistake, I withdrawal quite a lot of money compared to my bankroll…) so now I have lame 88$ :D . And will play 6-9 tables at ipoker. Recently I’ve joined a micro NL group, and hope we will improve.



      I want to post my recently played hands so it’s from yesterday :D . Now I will have fresh start in few hours. I want to play at least 1000 hands a day and play fully concentrated those are my 2 main goal for the month.
      Side goal would be everyday analyse of my sessions and posting some problematic hands.

      I choose English community because I want to practice my English too. If you will see some serious mistakes please post about them.


      I think it’s enough for the first post…

      ok sorry for a update after so long ...

      was playing a lot and had to do a lot of my stuff. Hoped that I created blog and have plenty of time posting hands charts etc. but life is brutal :D .

      anyway don't have lame 88$ now i have 463$ + nice backup on Moneybookers (but want to use this backup as a torment money, so for now I don't count it).

      I've said that I have back up because I play quite swingy speed holdem at NL20, so far b/e. (+0,5Bi).

      Hope you will help me achieving goal to reach NL200 speed :D , because recently it is alive.


      This hand was against very aggresive player, who I thought would often 4bet if I 3b him, didn't have much hands on him but was very aggro.

      Small update :)

      Game is getting better every day, I don't do much volume, about 1k + every day but keep progressing (I am playing 2 tables of speed). Roll is 525.47 ATM. So it's getting bigger every day, hope to keep it up :) .

      Today in the evening will review some of my hands, because people on speed benefit from being unknown and do some crazy stuff, I think reading my DB will be quite good exercise, and will benefit most from looking at opponents leaks because as I see same people are keeping doing same mistakes over and over again So noting is a must ..

      Ok, I had quite a hot run, and my laptop is kind of archaic, so i withdrawl 600$ and bought new PC, it is still shipped so at wed i will be able to do some more multitabling (unfornately on NL10).

      So my bankroll is 234$ I think it is enough for NL10 because players are far worse than on NL20 (less aggresive so swings will be less). but.... first session was -4BI :D .

      I also will try the 27$ TCOOP ticket, don't know which event to choose but I have to ship something because I think I deserve it :D .

      Something which bothers me on speed is the HM2 is loosing hands so I don't have few BI's which I won ....

      I hope the PC will be good for poker here is specification (hope someone could comment, because those numbers mean nothing to me ... i asked for a good PC with small budget for poker... I remember when more than 10 years ago i could easily read what is better than other because it was like look at the numbers ... now ... I don't have a slight idea what this shit is all about)

      oh i usually don't play games (only sometimes few flash games or some old, like starcraft, or some puzzle games, so i think i don't need any Graphic card, only build in one)


      1. CPU AMD APU A10-5800K QUAD CORE 3.8GHZ 4MB VGA HD7660D BOX S-FM2
      2. GIGABYTE GA-F2A85XM-D3H FM2 VGA A85 DDR3 SATA3 RAID USB3.0 GBLAN MATX
      3. PAM DIMM 8GB (2X4GB) DDR3 1866MHZ KINGSTONE HYPERX XMP 4. PREDATOR DUAL CL9 KHX18C9T2K2/8X
      4. HDD SDD INTEL 330 120GB 2.5 SATA3 500/450 SSDSC2CT120A3K5
      5. MATX MC NICE 2
      6. OCZ STEALTHXSTREAM 400W


      The cost was between 550-600 but more near to 550 :D . I hope it will be enough for few years (hope new poker programs won't be too much CPU and memory consuming...)
