      My Poker Career so far

      Play poker 2-3 years i think but not full time and play Ofcourse out of my bankroll limit's.
      In this 2-3 years lost 2k-2,5k in all poker rooms.

      My Challenge

      First: Move up from nl2 to nl50-100
      Second: Take back all my lose money.
      Third: Be a regular in nl50-100 zoom and higher if i can.

      Challenge Plan

      Deposit 75$ and start play NL2 zoom.
      Move up to NL5 when my roll is 125$
      Move down to NL2 when roll moves down to 80$
      Move up to NL10 when my roll is 250$ Move down to NL5 when roll moves down to 160$

      Seriously, you should post a lot more than 1 hand in the evaluation forum. The evaluation forum is imo the best thing pokerstrategy is offering. It's like free personal coaching and you aren't taking full advantage of it if you are posting only 1 hand every day. If after session you are posting more than 4-5 hands, you will see that your game, especially postflop, will greatly improve!

      And gl of course :)

      Hello Mon3yMaChin3,

      Nice to see that you have started to take poker even more seriously. Your goals seem quite realistic and I think that with hard working and by massive studying you could become a great player.

      Short-term goals seem quite good, too. 2k hands is quite a lot, but if you are to study your own game afterwards it's fine.

      Good luck with your challenge, feel free to post even more hands than 1/day if you feel like you want to ask something!

      I'm not shark at this but pretty much starting exactly the same as yourself so good luck I'll be following, bad first day, I don't often see non showdown winnings so high, bet sizes to big perhaps?

      one thing I've noticed last few days is if you hit the nuts I raise by about 35% of the pot and people can't even lay down a high card ace. I was too making my bets 75%+ off the pot size and people folded so many times I couldn't win a hand
