      I have created this blog to track and share my "poker life" with this amazing community...

      1st a short bio: My name is Diego(24) and I'm from Santago, Chile (sorry for bad english) I'm currently finishing my Bussines&Administration major, I have been playing poker for the last 3 or 4 years, but in the last 2 years (I guess) I've decided to improve my game and study a lot... As common players I've busted my $50 initial bank at PartyPoker so I switched to PStars with my own 1st deposit and I wasn't be an active member because I didn't get strategy points...

      Yesterday I swithched from PStars to Party, there is a lot of invaluable content on this community, I still dind't play hands in Party because I'm waiting my founds to be transfered...

      Will you ask why I choose english community than spanish?
      Easy, I guess europeans and northamericans players have so much level and there is a big gap between latinamerican players, thats the main reason and second here I will get much more feedback...

      What will be in this blog?
      Mainly, there will be session updates and reviews, some random info and I will use like a daily diary... :D

      Goals
      Short term:
      Be a winning player in micro stakes games

      hmmm its an easy fold preflop :D

      first off i think it's a push to put him on KJ+ and AJ+. more like KQ and AQ+ and even then we can't say for sure. and also we block Jx. also he 3bet huuuuuge. but the main problem is calling the 3bet OOP. IP is another story, but since we will be OOP postflop i think it will be really hard to play this profitably. what if you call OOP, then hit a Qhi/Khi/Ahi flop? then we start playing guessing games which is not good news. if you think you are ahead of him then just ship it in pre, but with JJ i think this will rarely be the case.
