      Hi guys!

      I'm Patrick, 23 year old student from Germany.

      I start this blog to improve my English skills and to write down my Poker "career".

      Last year I was playing NL20 6max on Cake/Ladbrokes but I had to cashout.
      So I started this year with a 20$ BR playing Zoom Poker on Pokerstars NL2 6-max.
      I did move up to NL5 but that kinda went wrong. :(


      Overallgraphs, I'll update them from time to time
      NL2:



      NL5:



      You can expect to see some graphs, hands, music and what else comes into my mind worth sharing.

      Feel free to correct my texts!
      I'll appreciate it!

      greetings
      DerPokerPasha



      Ps: One of my favorites atm!

      First Session after my blog started, made 5 stacks on NL2 so I will go back to NL5.

      My BRM will be very agressiv until I reach NL25.

      With 50$ I'll start on NL5 if I drop under 40$ I'll go back to NL2.
      150$ for NL10, down to NL5 with 120$.

      I know i have to move up/down a lot (5 times NL2-->5 and down again so far),
      but i dont wat to play more hands on the micros than needed.

      So i did my shot to NL5 last night and failed :evil:
      Lost my money AK<A8 pre for 70bb and a whole stack with KK in a 3-bet Pot on J84 vs JJ :/
      So my BR is down to 36$ and after 800 hands I'm back at NL2 :f_rolleyes:

      Next Monday is my last exam this semester(is this the right english word?!).
      After that I'll have time to play a alot and also to analyse some hands :)

      I might will play some hands on the weekend and give a short summary on Sunday

      Gl, I played with same BRM starting from NL5 and am at NL25 today. It took me about 5 months (15k hands a month) but I had to move down couple of times earlier (imo NL25 is more different from NL10 than NL5 is from NL10). Now I'm feeling more confident than ever and have build fairly solid BR of $450. So keep on grinding/learning and don't let temporar setbacks stop you!

      session finished, didnt't play very well.
      Made some mistakes due to lack of concentration,
      like don't adjust betsizes for 3bets (raised a 4 cent bet to 6 cents...)
      and that happend 3 times.

      Also this Hand:

      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (BTN): $2.24 (112 bb)
      SB: $2.23 (111.5 bb)
      BB: $2.12 (106 bb)
      UTG: $4.20 (210 bb)
      MP: $1.24 (62 bb)
      CO: $2.33 (116.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 K
      UTG raises to $0.08, MP calls $0.08, CO folds, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.27) 3 7 T (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.29, UTG folds, MP calls $0.21

      Turn: ($0.85) 7 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.90

      I always make big value bets with the explanation, that the avg micro player will call so much.
      Then in some spots I make those bluffs and go like "they cant call XX here"
      Just stupid and there is no need for those plays imo


      Anyway.. ~3 stacks up which makes it 4 more stacks to go for the next shot to NL5

      So i think i will focus on normal tables again..played 50k Hands on NL2/5 and I am still where i was before....



      As I said I planned to play normal tables during the milestone promo anyway
      When I feel comftable on them I will stay and maybe go for the PS.com promo

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/news/pokerstrategy/Level-Up-Your-Status-Earn-Cash-in-March!_69202/

      Ladbrokes or Cake Poker would be an option for me, still not sure.

      Starting a NL5 normal table session now..ONE TIME^^
