      First of all, i'm a brazilian student that is living in Ontario, Canada. So, i'm just living here for 2 weeks, so my english is not good yet, be patient :}

      I want start the blog with a challenge: Transform my 10 bucks into a decent bankroll ($1K) by the end of the year.

      For 2nl, 5nl and 10nl, i will use 12.5bi's for MSS strategy and 10bi's for BSS. My mindset is good, so i don't worry to move down.

      Yeah, that's all for now. Will try update this every day.

      So, GL for me.

      @LendarTecho Thanks man! The road will be very hard, but i think i can reach.

      Finished the first session with 800 hands and $0.80 up (EV is $2,50 up).

      I will post graphs every 5k hands. Pretending play 2k hands per day in 6 tables.

      Some hands:

      Full Tilt - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $2.25 (VPIP: 26.56, PFR: 17.19, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 65)
      CO: $2.02 (VPIP: 23.97, PFR: 11.64, 3Bet Preflop: 2.17, Hands: 150)
      BTN: $2.08 (VPIP: 19.77, PFR: 11.05, 3Bet Preflop: 6.67, Hands: 175)
      SB: $2.11 (VPIP: 16.22, PFR: 13.57, 3Bet Preflop: 5.62, Hands: 262)
      Hero (BB): $2.25

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:diamond: T:heart:

      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.07, fold, Hero calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.15, 2 players) K:diamond: 2:spade: 4:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.26, BTN calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.67, 2 players) A:spade:
      Hero bets $0.38, BTN calls $0.38

      River: ($1.43, 2 players) 3:heart:
      Hero bets $0.52, BTN calls $0.52

      Hero shows A:diamond: T:heart: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 60%, Flop 15%, Turn 89%)
      BTN mucks K:spade: Q:diamond: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 40%, Flop 85%, Turn 11%)
      Hero wins $2.35

      This board looks ok to c/r as bluff vs a 89% CB guy, after he called my raise, i put him on Kx and some TT, JJ, QQ. I would c/f any turn, but in this ace i just went to value. I'm thinking that i will be called for Kx even if i shove this river. Opinions please

      Hand 2:

      Full Tilt - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      BTN: $1.52 (VPIP: 25.76, PFR: 7.58, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 71)

      Hello there TheJesusOfSuburbia,

      i wish you all good luck on your way. I will definitely follow you progress through the limits.

      :s_cry: for the second hand :) .

      I took a look also at the table stats and realized there were not big fishes at the tables. There were only quite decent players for NL2. Do you do any table selecting? I think you can find many tables with huge fishes and of course your progress will be significantly faster.

      Good luck and see you around :D

      Yeah, there isn't more maniacs. My ego doesn't allow i make table selection on 2NL.

      I think it's just grind more 10k hands and i'll reached the step 1.

      What do you think about this river? I think that overbet shove it is better, cause he's gonna be calling with all overpairs, and there isn't any that is beating me in his range as he played.
