      Quick intro since I won't want to bore anyone.:D
      Been playing online poker since around 2007.
      Usually just SNGs and basically tried all variants.
      Moved to pokerstars after Fulltilt got shut down and played around 10k sngs since. Made a small profit, but never been great at "grinding" and putting in the volume needed.
      Lately been messing around with cash a bit. Or zoom to be more precise.
      Been playing NL10 for around 40k hands and was going alright.
      Tried to take a shot at NL25 and failed so back to rebuilding :D
      My goal for November was gonna be to just stick to NL10 and hopefully put in enough volume to get gold on pokerstars.
      So this is the perfect opportunity to make this blog i guess.
      Probably won`t manage 3x pots a week since I usually dont play that much but will be fun to make this anyway.
      Hopefully this won't mean I go on my usual downswing whenever I start a new blog ;D

      ops forgot my screen name: wtvriwnt on pokerstars

      Ops. Almost forgot about this...
      played 3 sessions so far this week. less than an hour each so volume isn´t going well.
      Was gonna play more today but internet is being spazzy so just got disc when i was gonna call a shove w/ overpair on flop :(

      1st session was on the 2nd.
      played a bit after i got back from work late.
      BAD idea since i proceeded to bluff off 4 stacks on the most ridiculous bluffs...

      2nd session went better.
      played in the morning before work instead of when i get back tired. also had a nice cup of coffee :D
      probably played for a bit too long and should have stopped for a break..
      my optimal session time seems to be just under an hour before i lose focus/start tilt or whatever.



      didnt manage to play last couple days due to work seeing friends etc.
      playing a bit today and will update once im finished for the day (hopefully if i dont forget :D )

      obviously forgot to update after my session yesterday again,... ops

      won my biggest hand in recent memory today.:f_cool: BB wise at least.

      Poker Stars $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2348481
      DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

      Hero (BTN): $30.42
      SB: $12.40
      BB: $11.73
      UTG: $16.80
      MP: $24.43
      CO: $9.35

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :heart: A :spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.35, 2 folds, MP raises to $4.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $10.25, MP raises to $24.43 all in, Hero calls $14.18

      Flop: ($49.31) 3 :diamond: 3 :heart: 6 :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Turn: ($49.31) 3 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($49.31) J :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      he had KK which might be a mistake 240bb deep..
      dont think my stats would be too spewy

      anyway, heres yesterday's graph



      gonna play some more today so maybe ill manage to update again later on.
      playing 1k hands on the days i do play wont be enough to get gold status on stars.
      will see at the halfway point what my points are like and most likely give up on that...

      Wow he kept coming with those cowboys didn't he! Happy days that those rockets managed to hold up. I do believe he played that a little poorly with a very deep stack.

      Good to see you are updating your thread! Everyone really wants that duckie! :D

      Keep up the good work!
