      What's up folks!

      I decided to start a blog. I hope it keeps me sharp and focussed on my game and my goals.

      I play poker for a few years now, and I've played it all: sit&go's, ca$h, mtt, HU, PLO etc. I have focussed on playing only single table sit&go's (up to $7) in the past but after a few months I cashed out and didn't play that much anymore and never really grinded the cash games.

      But that has changed. I want to work myself up in the limits of no limit cash short handed. I can crush NL2, with a wintrate of 15/100 over 40k hands. I then switched to NL5, but had to move down twice, after a few beats in a row. So, I will focus on playing NL2 once more, untill I'm confident enough to go crush NL5 again. I have played up to NL50 in the past, but the game seemed to be easier back then and I think I also lost my edge a bit.

      What I like to do is post two hands of my poker session which I think summarizes how good I ran while I played.

      So here we go:
