      Hi,my name is Blaz and i coming from Slovenia.I have been playing poker since i was eighteen.This is for 9 years now.
      I have swinging from cash to SnG's and tourneys and i have never success with moving up the limits so well, i am stuck, no matter if i was cashout couple of times.

      This year i met here a man who has helped me so much as nobody else before didn't.He gave me a very good articles, this include prof. clips for beating 6max cash games and a very very good book i got yesterday with a strategy beating from micro limits up to nl1000 or maybe even more.
      Considering that he wanted to help me i wasn't that serious enough to succed for half year now.I am prepared now to achieve goals.

      Here ill track my progress and im starting from nl5 6max speed-poker on ipoker.Im gonna play 2 tables and gradually ill open them more when ill be prepared and got permission for that, because im under a stake with that man.
      So lets hope this will be a motivation for me and either you if you're on the same stage.
      In the next post ill start with a goal to achieve this month and tell you what have i learned on the day when i was studing the things and what affect it has on the game.

      well, let's start...

      Approach to the game have changed from the days and i have also learned some new things like playing a poker for a business and not for fun,that the luck has a very low inpact on the long run, and this could be achieve either in 2 months or even less if you're a big grinder and its important to refresh those things from time to time to keep discipline and have a big motivation.

      So yesterday i have learned also a bit how to use equity equilator which helps me especialy on blinds where the VPIPs are bigger from a players who steals them and how loose i can call them to be profitable or even make more pressure on them with a 3-betting.Also i have trained the reasons to raise,bet ,call,check or fold and im still learning it because its not that easy to know that things.

      The graph shows for the past 7 days when i decide its no other way to been succesefull than learning from the mistakes, reading good articles, watching clips and one of them writing this blog :)




      The graph is very nuts and i know it wont last long because things will start running over me and ill need a discipline to know when its the right time to press a pause button and refresh a mind.

      Goals this month:

      [ /] Read the book
      [ /] Play 20k of hands
      [ / ] Analyze some of the most crucial hands, or the biggest ones
      [ /] Watch 5 live session videos

      The villain is unknown only 3 hand history,he is prob a fish, i 3bet PF and cont. bet i got called on the turn i check because i want to know how strong he could be, and on the river i make a big mistake, i should check-call half pot to make a note on him, also a bigger bet on flop.. obv he has a flush

      Villain is a loose passive fish..couldn't set him on a range of only 10 hands but
      50/17 stats shows much..i push AI on turn in guess he may be on a draw or he could fold 10 instead.
