      Hi Boys and Girls,

      First, iam a 28.years old Boy from Germany.
      I restart my Blog here in english/international community again.

      Nowadays, i got the Feeling that german community is full of jealous and angry people who flame all day long and dont wanna share some pokerknowledge.

      Thats just my impression, so i decided to switch up to here. I got just one request, if you see some grammar faults, pls say something my English skills are poor.


      My First Contact to Online Poker


      I guess, it was like sommer in 2007 i saw some really great commercials of FTP i really like that, so i deposit 100$ on FTP and played NL 10 Fullring without any Strategy or Chart etc.

      I played for one Hour and won 10$ somehting like that. I was so happy about it. My first Thought was, i wann do this all day long haha. Stupid Kid^^


      The first Contact to Pokerstrategy was at the turn of the year 2007/08. The first time i played SSS and some Freerolls to push my Bankroll. I reach 3 place and cash 75$ in first week so, i climb the stakes faster then normal.

      I played SSS to NL200FR and switched then to NL BIgstack STrategy.


      Crush my Bankroll First Time to ZERO

      I played NL100SH as a Solid regular not really good but solid play was enough to getting 3bb/100 2008-2010. One Day i took a Shot to Nl200SH With about 30 BI.

      The Sessions went really bad for me, the final hand was AA against AA for more then 200bb and villian gets lucky with 4 card flush Board runout. Thats destroy my Mindset completely.

      I lost my whole Bankroll in 3 Days, played with no control and full of Anger, i guess it was Tilt on the highest Level.(the last 600 Bucks donated in PP Casino) LIKE A BOSS NOOOOOOOOOOOT.

      After these Days i suffered a Burnout, which absorbed me for a half year, i couldn´t feel anything, everything was bad in my Mind, i cant study i cant work i cant smile that Time.




      The Current Starting Point

      I played Zoom since two or three Months, actually NL25 Shorthanded only. Mixed Sessions with 2 and 4 Tables. My Bankrollmanagement ist quit aggressive cause i think i got a Big Edge.




      My Poker Goals for 2013

      First, i wanna reach Supernova, i know its really hard with microstakes Games, i hope i can climb 1-2 Limits and reduce the Count of Hands to play.More Quality less Quanity?

      Second Goal, i wanna take Poker more Seriously. What does it mean? I like to think about Game theory and some other Stuff for example create a Gameplan or just doing some math/Range analysis.





      Interests and non Poker Stuff



      Sports

      Current i do normal Sports, Basketball and some fitness training. That should be changed next year.Last year i saw a few videos of Wingsuit Basejumping stuff, thats awesome, my first idea was i must do this in my Life.
      I cant realize anything else that make so much fun like this crazy SHit. I will do this before i have kids or some other commitments in life.
      First Step, is to do my first skydive. I hope i survive and not to scary to do this again.



      Health

      Last October my doctor diagnose herpes zoster, it was the result of 2 or 3 Weeks with work,work stress, sport, sport, more Sport and just 2-3 Hours Sleep every day. My Doctor sayed stop every activity, ok i slow down for one week and though
      about everything in life.What is really worth to live for?Maybe I should change my Lifestyle. I dont drink alot, dont smoke but my nutrition is not really balanced. I think about to avoid sugar in 2013, its really hard to try this but something should be changed.


      Music

      I find some really good Artist last year Palov Stelar, for me every Song is the Bomb. I heared for motivation and for grinding sessions to stay focus without falling in autopilot modus.
      Another favorite kind of music are Movie Soundtracks. I am a big Fan of Hans Zimmer.



      Strengths in Poker

      I think my biggest Strength are my Handreading skills online and live Poker but second dont count cause i dont really often play live. My knowledge about Poker should be over Limit average.



      Weakness in Poker

      Discipline/Work ethic and Mindset. Two essiantial Points to achieving somehing in Poker. Got to Work hard ob both t reaching my Goals.




      What can you expect from my blog


      The Main function of my Blog is to discipline myself and get a structure for my Poker activity. I will post Thoughs and videos about Work@ my Mindset and some other motivation stuff. I will also post special Hands, some Palov Stelar Songs and random stuff.


      I spend New Year's Eve at Prague with some legendary Boys and Girls(drink a lot just one Day and do Party hard) so if you got some advice for Party Action let me know.

      Cheers


      Last thoughs...

      my HERO i like this picture so much i wann print it on a shirt and walk around like a BOSS :s_cool:

      About that quality over quantity stuff, if you want SNE next year you will need a lot quantity mixed with quality. I read somewhere here that to be able to become SNE you need like 80-90k hands a month at least?

      Pfft! I listened to Stelar before he got popular.

      And you must be very good considering you had 2x 10 stars rating as soon as you made this blog.

      good morning Boys and Girls,


      first thanks for all the good wishes you motivated me!

      @Rihard4a sry for misunderstanding, i cant do SNE its out of Space for me, haha. "Just" wanna achieve Supernova.
      Pokerstrategy published an article which maybe answer your question better then my own knowledge about. So look here Getting Supernova Elite article


      @VladimirN yeah i heared palov Stelar first time when i was watching some Starcraft Streams of Minigun. I guess it was 2011?


      First Bad News...


      Wrong Mindset wrong body language

      Last Weekend i learned something about myself, it was just a small aha experience.
      We go two league matches(Basketball) and my team was really underdog against both :f_frown: cause the other teams they'd 2-3 really Big Guys under basket.
      So, the opportunity to win was really small but it exist, and thats what only should count! But what i sayed? I Sayed to my teammates @second match that we could proud of us if we wanna lose with only 20 or 30 points gap.

      Thats a bad poor Mindset, and not really helpfully in any situation in life. So i have to change.


      The only Choice i have, is enjoy every Second in my life, every time i meet a person, every moment i realize is special moment and unique.




      Good News


      I played just a short Sessions yesterday, but was 100% satisfied with my own Game.
      And i have no choice to dont post the Hand, i really enjoy haha.winning 400bb pot is always Fun
      I experiment with overbets when hold the nuts.

      Second good news...

      Maybe i find a personal coach who give me lessons to improve my game. Currently i play abc style with negative redline etc. One of his students post a graph about just 5k Hands with 30bb i know samplesize is really low but i had never ever such a upswing so maybe its 50% Skill or something like that.



      to do list for today

      [ ] 2 hours Gym Session

      [ ] creating a study plan for next 4 Weeks

      [ ] work 1 hour on my Mindset with Jared Tendler´s Book
      [ ] clean my room

      [ ]enjoy life

      realizing that you're actually making a mistake is the hardest part, I know because recently I've had a similar situation and its extremely hard to change your mindset no matter what the topic is. Im curious to see how you're going to tackle this one. really cool to have you here with us in the EN community :) and see that people are not afraid to admit the area they need to improve.

      Hi Boys and girls,

      i cant update the blog yesterday cause of no internet connection all day long.


      Today the only goal was to clear the stelar and getting the Bonus for 75$. And what happens`? Yes playing 3k hands and losing 10 Stacks and i feel overrun no. Cant do nothing against downswing.

      Iam really pissed off now. Cause i made some mistakes i can avoid really easy. Need to come down stop playing maybe for some days. Running 400$ under EV thats a lot for aggressive Bankrollmanagement.



      i have to analyse a lot tomorrow/all spots again. Write notes thats everything i can do. MAybe the count for mistakes is much higher then i think now.


      Mindset work for tomorrow: Reading Twice T Thread AMA

      Good Morning Boys and Girls,


      now i got the time to write a better update.

      I played the last 3 days only 1 1/2 Hour won 4 Stacks but the important thing, i was happy with my Game.

      I realize, i have to break my thoughts and decisionsmaking process away from results. Thats the biggest task for me atm.


      Mindset

      One Christmas present was "Think and grow Rich" from Napoleon Hill. I guess, its really good content to read and study.
      That Book brings me aonother Problem, i got so much stuff to read right now and have to bring everything in chronological order to get the best results of working.

      Thoughts about EV...

      Are really bad, the last 25k hands iam running 6bb under EV. But can i change? No, so why i mindfuck myself and think about that? Twice T says its waste of time to use your energy to think about stuff you cant change or control.

      i notice, i need a new direction to thought about poker and benefit from new point of view.

      i must quote a great video who was posting from IngridN. THANK YOU. I watch that several times a day and think about poker.
      I like the game, and i like the opportunity to winning money.






      3 Days experiment

      27-12-12 till 29-12-12

      I just wanna try to be 100% productive. No time for laziness, no time for Couchsurfing several hours, no time for surf the internet.


      daily schedule(example): Wake up early like 6:00 am eat something and prepare for Gym.
      learn for exam till 4:00 pm and grind till midnight.

      Hey Boys and Girls,


      some days no update, sounds spoooky right? Playing bad+ Tilting alot cut the bankroll in halve but not only one Time.


      iam speechless about myself. i booking a coach early in the morning today for 2 hours and 120€ and now i can play maybe nl5 with my Bankroll. Thanks Tilt.

      That Sounds like a real big joke, but its not a joke.


      ANYWAY HAPPY NEW YEAR

      2012 Year Review




      My 2012

      First iam really disappointed of myself, when i think about last year i can not find any good moment in real life. Broken Relationship with my ex girlfriend in febr/march. Gets A Burnout in may(cant do anything till july or so). Get new Relationship she quits after 3 weeks or so, just kidding, no iam not.
      November starts with (herpes) zoster 1 week relax and do nothing like couch surfing haha.

      Birhtday and Christmas time is the worst time for me, iam getting every fucking year in winter-depression. So cancel Prague Trip cause of sickness and depression.

      Pokeryear

      Grind alot of Hands with no positiv results, iam runnin bad but thats not the point. Iam disapointed about myself cause i saw so many bad plays from villian and iam to stupid to exploit this.

      So i need a Pause from Poker. Maybe one week, think about Life in all.
      I dont wanna grind 150k hands/month and lose cause of Tilt or Stupid Gameselection or Whatever. I HATE THAT. I must CHANGE my Mindset absolutely, or i can quit Life forever.

      Tomorrow i will write a Schedule for Poker Content stuff etc. and Goals for next year.

      Hi Boys and Girls,



      two reasons why i updated but now. First, i write huge Post maybe over 1 hour but then missclick some X Button and lost all :f_cry: .

      A day later, i got bad news from family, doctor diagnosed skin cancer upon my Grandpa. So i lost Mindcontrol fpr a few days, cause he is my little Hero in m Family found a Company and work really hard his whole life, and now maybe its over in some days.


      Anyway i cant stop now. I wanna achieve the Top of my Range.


      Starting with Goals of 2013

      Poker
      :spade: Achieve NL200 till 12/31/2013

      (3 Months for each Limit start NL5)

      :spade: Get a Twice T Mindset

      Life
      :heart: Finnish Study

      :diamond: Get Coaching License (Basketball)

      :club: absolve first Skydive(Long Time Goal do some Wingsuit Action)

      :spade: build up 5 Kg muscle atm 80->85 iam 6.1 and feeling Skinny ALL DAY LONG

      :heart: take a Vacation( last was in 2010) need that to reload my Energy Level

      I played only 8k hands the last 2 weeks, but running pretty good so far. 13bb/100 whatever i dont really care. Realize some development in Mindset, for example Fish sucks me out i dont care like "regular" sucks me out cause i know the money come back in a few hands/orbits Sessions whatsoever.
      I also tableselected alot and do 2 Sweet Sessions with poker Study Group. Good conversations about Weakness of each Player in Group and find some solutions.

      Next Week Goal are 10k Hands only and record every Session with camtasia cause i have to learn some time for last exam and write some applications for internship, after that i can start grind to achieve NL10 in Feb.

      Some Mindset Stuff i really really like. I believe now that 90% of Pokerskill is mental Skill what i need the 10% its just mathematic from elementary school :s_cool:




      if you wanna see some FUNkey Hands say something bye...







      ...Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass guys. It's about learning how to? dance in the fuckiing rain!" ...
