      My name is Nejc i come from Slovenia(i guess i'm not the only one here :D ), i'm a computer programer, i'm 25 years old, i like cars, i drive a VW Golf 3 GTI JUBI 16v slightly modified - car is like a go-cart and i realy like it(i won't sell ti xD ). Cars are my passion and my love, I want to buy a porsche 911(993/ or 996/xxx) someday (i think we all do :P ) i play poker for about 2 or 3 years mostly for fun on micro stakes on party and PS, but i start to take game more seriusly recently. I was winning player (yes we all are ;) ) in partypoker at NL2/NL4 where i created my BR, i'm sure i CAN beat games up to NL10. I start playing zoom I played 10k hands with 10bb/100@NL10 and i tought what i own the game - easy game, i'm the best, printing money etc.. my BR was 430$ when things start to do down in about 40k hands, i realised my game is not that good as i tought, i was playing ABC style, then downswing + bad game come, my BR was ~200$ and my winrate was -4bb/100 after 50k hands i lost everyhand evey flip, set over set, got frustrated, i started folding to much, i change my game(to worse!!), think of all bad things, look at myself as worst player in the world. So i take a brake i move down to NL5 didn't play zoom, everything was ok, but now still play zoom and i know i shouldn't play becose edge is smaller on zoom :( but still zoom is like a drug and it's hard to not play zoom becouse it's so fun and sick for me :D I think for zoom 30BI rule it's just not enough if you don't want to deposit, swings are huge, BR is vital for everything. I learn a lot from downswings and from bed beats in my game and i do know that winning player is still a wining player over the long run.(and vice versa)

      I play mainly 6max cash game ZOOM 3/4 tables, we play some MTT tourney with friends and we won some money total ~ 400$ usd at BWIN , i won some 1$ tourney on betfred got 50$ and got some cash in MTT at pokerstars, not much about 60$ (2.2$ ante up) somethink to boost my BR so i could play NL10. I think im good at MTTS becouse i'm quite tight, but i cant play them well for more then 4h+ so i usually don't play them. I play STT 6max somethimes, and i'm quite good at it, maybe i should stick to is :s_confused: My main problem is when i play NL10 or higher i started to be resoults oriented and get tilted very soon(er), i don't play good poker like i do in NL2/NL5, i'm afraid of loosing big pots, afraid of beeing reraised etc i do think that all NL10 regs are regs etc..., so i bet to much i think, so people fold to much or just call with better.

      I stared my blog becouse i want to improve, in 2013 my goal is to became better person in all aspects. In my game i hope i can reach at least NL25/NL50 in frist half of the year, if not i think i'll just need to realise that i'm not for this game and just quit or play with less volume. I played a lot's of hand in micros and i know how to play how people think, react, my biggest problems are tilt(lost of NL10 BI was on tilt) and midset, and i call to much becouse on low stakes, it's just 5$ so i call wheh i have AA-JJ on xxxxx board. I started playing more positional aware poker, i start to 3-bet light, and even 4b bluff, still not something i do always, but i get a spoot to do it. My leaks are i cannot fold AA, KK on smth like QJ9 flop, becouse i see so much ugly boards with AA/KK every time, that i dont think it's real to opponent have the hand, then i call and opponent has KJ and im like frustrated i cant win with aces, then i loose to 37o when guy just bet bet bet and i loose again with AA, then tilt come and -5BI it's easy, i start loosing money, i don't care about the money. I do think that i'm not the luckiest guy on planet with my overall run, AKo is a shitty hand for me, cant flop good like never, and i got problems with big pairs.

      Well stop whining, this thing need to stop, no turning back now, sky is the limit, i want some real money. So i will try to post a new hand almost every day, i'll try to update my blog every day and post as much hands in eval as possible. I already did post some hands, and BogdanPS always do a great job evaluating so i just need to start doing things more often. I don't want to invest my own money in poker, i wan't to earn it by playing. whan i do have the confidence then maybe i will, but now it's not the case. Im thinking of making a video of 3 tables zoom so i can get some feedback from my play.. whell maybe sometime in future.

      my moto is: if anything can go wrong it will -> but i think i need a new moto :D

      sorry for my english i was writing fast :)


      POKER GOALS:
      - beat NL10, reach NL25
      - read poker mindset book
      - read ryan 6max NL guide
      - play 2000hands/day if possible in ZOOM
      - improve my overall game and thought process
      - try not to TILT -> i'm gonna tilt no more, tilt no more :)

      Hey Nejc =)

      good luck on your journey to NL25 and higher. Do you play NL10 only on zoom? I played NL2 on zoom and I can't win, bad play and so. But at the normal tables I could win. Maybe you should play the normal tables.

      I will be following your blog.

      After bad swings i to move back to NL5 zoom, bacause i need more BI to play comfortably. My BR was not big enough for NL10. And i start to play 3 tables instead of 4, wich helped a lot, i go on autopilote with 4 tables so easly and i start losing money, folding to much, etc. I play zoom becouse my 28" monitor is on repair X( so i use small 19"inch. But i think overall normal tables are way better. After running bad on nl10 and nl5, thinks started to go better on NL5.





























      Now i go to lunch, so i'll post some hands later.

      Hand 2

      He was a 23/16/6,7 3-bet (only 97 hands)

      He was a "bad reg i think", i put him on busted draws at most, i don't think he have an overpair in his range, he would 3-bet JJ+ preflop, i was hoping to hit a flush on the river and fold to overcards if A/K hits, river is a blank, so i decided to c-c and hope that he will show me some busted draws.

      Another BAD play from me again on autopilot 4-tabeling where is obvious that im beaten when K comes, he is a reg and he raise, what can he have? well not much AQ or set at least, so i have marked him as a TAG, but no, on autoplay i just cannot fold 2 pairs, becouse i can see all the other hands in his range that i beat and bla bla bla .... bullshit ... im loosing money and hurting my winrate

      whell i minraised the flop to keep players in i got a felling that im good there most often, they both calls, turn is a 2, im like, this is good card for me, so i'll 2nd barrel but was still more afraid of 6 in his range that 2, one folds, fish calls, river is a 3 completing the straight i'm all pissed, oh dear there goes the aces again and call the river ... after couple of hands like this i decide to move to NL5 and play less tables.



      This is my hud that i'm using:





      Any info about my hud? To many info? I don't have geat popup stats so i like more stats.

      My stats on NL5 zoom currently are 20/15/5 3-bet on about 20k hands. I tried to loosen up but end up loosing money, so im like 19/17 or 19/15 nit at 6max :P

      So i do think(hope) that all my bad beats are getting quite even in the long run. As i can see, playing 4 tables zoom its just not good for me, not enough bluffs etc, just to much abc poker and my redline is going straihgt down.

      well AA is still a problem :D always bad board i didn't want to stack on this board, he was 18/5 passive, and when the flush hit he insta showe, only hand that i'm beating in his range is KK, i don't think he have a lot's of bluff here, i once again i just fold AA :s_evil:

      Here i don't like my play, i do think i should fold after im getting reraised, i don't beat much, and i didn't know much about my opponent. But this strange play limp-calling, limp-showing etc, i'm not good with with these spots. Once in ZOOM I had KK and guy limp-shows AA, im thinking that can't be AA and i call and i lose :D

      Zooming at very late hours -> looks profitable :)

      I also run good, after a very long time, hiting flops and holding, i did 2 or 3 hero folds, i'll post more hands after this "christmas spirit" calm down :D lot's of drinking involved.

      I fold here on the flop. The minraise looks strong and I don't to invest more money on turn and river.
