      That will be dual blog/race for Supernova between me and shortchange. Currently both play $30 HuSnG Hypers, both suck at volume, both 1-tabling. If poker were a sport we would definitely count as handicapped.

      So here is the deal. Loser will have to visit winner and buy him beer. Lots of it.



      zilltine (Mr Red Line)

      My goals for May:
      :club: Play 2k games



      About me:

      I have soo much time, but i keep wasting it. Even with my sucky volume i kinda dont have to find a job, i have no other serious things to do. I just waste my time. I go out, i spend time with girlfriend, i lurk 2p2, watch all kind of tv series. Finally, when my gf is busy, friends at work, no new episodes are out, every post on 2p2 husng section is read i waste my time playing some stupid games i don`t even like or feel addicted to. That is not even worse part. I feel more entertained after session (<3 HU) rather than after other crap i do. I even have "stamina" to pull long work hours (used to work as a chef). But i still dont do it.

      I suck at life to. It`s 3rd week i can`t finish reading "easy way to stop smoking". I still didnt clear my walls since NY eve (not sure what happened but coke/vodka/beer is all over them), did clean floor at least. I do no sports, i know that it would be good for poker, life, health, girlfriend would love tho. I could at least work out at home ffs.

      My sleeping habits are worse than yours. Trust me, yesterday i told myself: "i`ll go sleep at 2am". Were watching "Burn Notice" till 9:30am, woke up at 5pm and laid in bed till 6:30pm. Thats quite common.


      shortchange (Mr Blue Line)



      My goals for May:

      Heh, just realised it's the first of the month, so seems somewhat appropriate to post monthly goals to start the month, and hopefully a revived blog, off right. So, May Goals:

      - Play 200 hours
      -Study 30 Hours
      - Get better at coaching
      -Settle in at 60s
      - Be closer to Zilltine in VPPs at the end of the month

      Z just wars with regs and crushes. Fo real, redline is legit. Also beer is not puishment, free beer is incentive.

      I am 22 years old, from Lithuania. Buying beer is not punishment, we are ~2k km apart. That makes some difficulties.

      Great to have you blogging guys and so nice to see people owning and having fun doing it. Inadvertently or not, you set a good example so you're both winners already.

      Have fun and run good!

      I see others post hands in their blogs so i`ll do same

      Stacks:
      zilltine (SB) (560) 28bb
      BB (440) 22bb
      post
      Blinds: 10/20

      Pre-Flop: (30, 2 players) zilltine is SB J:heart: 8:club:
      zilltine raises to 40, BB calls 20

      Flop: 3:spade: 5:heart: 7:spade: (80, 2 players)
      BB checks, zilltine bets 40, BB calls 40

      Turn: Q:heart: (160, 2 players)
      BB bets 60, zilltine raises to 150, BB folds

      Final Pot: 280

      zilltine wins 370 (net +140)

      BB lost 140

      readless vs fish.

      I dont expect flop calling range to have lots of overcard floats on this board. Also, even fish is most likely to ch/r 2p on such draw heavy board. So i guess raise is best i can do. With intention to shove 8TJKA OTR

      Current VPP total: 3824

      Supernova is looking more and more like a pipe dream at this point for me, I've barely managed any volume at all this month. Finally got a stable internet connection in place now, as such I think it's time to get this turned around, shooting for 150 games/day from here on out, and will try and post daily updates.

      You're welcome for the Shogun 2 recommendation btw Z!
