      Hello,

      My name in Matus and I am from Slovakia. I lived/study/worked in Brno(CZ) last 7 years. After this summer i moved back to my home town Trencin for couple of months. I gues, I will go to Spain in April 2014 for couple of monts and then i would like to go to Peru for couple of months. :)

      Reason for this blog is simple. I started to play online again after short 2-3 month break, playing live, traveling etc. I had blog on CZ/SK part of PSGY. This time i want to write/share also NON poker related things and make it different from last time when i just update grafs every day, but hope that poker will stay main topic :)

      This is me from 1.10.2013, I play KO SNGs at Pokerstars, you can find me under nickname "mattusko". Started with 3.5$ and now i try to add some 15s with selection to my sessions. click for more :)



      I think Thats all for now and please do not hesitate to ask anything.

      GL & HF.

      Hey Matus,

      Welcome to the English blogging section.

      You certainly like to travel around. Is it work-related or are you trying to make a go of the live circuit.

      Not that it matters. Should be an interesting blog anyways.

      Happy Grinding

      HI Lazza61,

      Thanks to stopping here :)
      Yes, I enjoy traveling more and more. Both mentioned travels will be work/holiday related, i guess.

      Hi again,

      Today nothing special happend at the tables. Played 62 SNGs with BE results.



      This is one of marked hands: PS wants to trap me, but i say trololo :D

      What do you think about my fold? Sick, but correct or you prefer to call?

      CO - fish
      BTN - more solid than fish, but nothing special

      Poker Stars $5.24+$1.31+$0.45 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t100/t200 Blinds + t25 - 4 players

      Hero (BB): t2520 M = 6.30
      CO: t6065 M = 15.16
      BTN: t4460 M = 11.15
      SB: t455 M = 1.14

      Pre Flop: (t400) Hero is BB with K :spade: K :club:
      CO raises to t6040 all in, BTN calls t4435 all in, 2 folds

      Flop: (t9270) 2 :club: 4 :diamond: 6 :spade: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      Turn: (t9270) 3 :heart: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      River: (t9270) 5 :spade: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      Final Pot: t9270
      CO shows A :diamond: 2 :diamond: (a straight, Deuce to Six)
      BTN shows Q :spade: Q :heart: (a straight, Deuce to Six)
      CO wins t4635
      BTN wins t4635

      Thanks.

      Hey,

      Last two day was really fast and i didnt play online a lot. On Monday i played small live turney (5e rb) and unfortunetely finished 5th after i chiplead 80% of the tournament. Lost 60:40 for chiplead and then run into KK an AA and tournament was over without money 3 places paid.

      Today i had skype call with one of my friend, he is grinding 1.5$ and 3.5$ so i am trying to help him with his game a little bit. We go thorough 2 sngs and found some leaks, i was very happy about it, not because he has/had leak but because i can identify it and explain it.

      So far so good in my goals.Mainly i increase avg.BI, very happy about it. From start of the week i mantain over 1$ per game, ueee, anyway want to run hotter :D

      Good Luck & Have Fun

      Hey all,

      Week is over and it is time to write something again. Week wasnt very good and it all ends with Sunday Storm.

      SNG Volume was huge fail. Didn't play as much as i want. Mostly because i am lazy but i played also two live tournament (monday and friday), didn't cash. Then i was in theatre on saturday, prettty nice performance by actors, enjoy it. (so much exuses :D ).

      Today i decided to play 20man qualification for SS for FPP. Won some tickets and also played it. Finished 198/48K, it is little bit sad when it go like this,
      pot was top 5 stack in that moment. :

      Poker Stars $10+$1 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t30000/t60000 Blinds + t6000 - 8 players

      Rohrschach66 (UTG+1): t96598 M = 0.70
      RZ_X5 (MP1): t983454 M = 7.13
      zima_blizko (MP2): t1330914 M = 9.64
      emgp55555 (CO): t1404186 M = 10.18
      bambamdam (BTN): t610764 M = 4.43
      Hero (SB): t1557134 M = 11.28
      C_Bigs (BB): t1298479 M = 9.41
      HCGY777 (UTG): t334070 M = 2.42

      Pre Flop: (t138000) Hero is SB with K :heart: K :club:
      HCGY777 raises to t328070 all in, 2 folds, zima_blizko raises to t1324914 all in, 2 folds, Hero raises to t1551134 all in

      Flop: (t3085898) A :club: 8 :club: 8 :heart: (4 players - 3 are all in)

      Turn: (t3085898) 3 :heart: (4 players - 3 are all in)

      River: (t3085898) 5 :spade: (4 players - 3 are all in)

      Final Pot: t3085898
      zima_blizko shows A :diamond: Q :spade: (two pair, Aces and Eights)
      Hero shows K :heart: K :club: (two pair, Kings and Eights)
      HCGY777 shows J :spade: T :spade: (a pair of Eights)
      zima_blizko wins t1993688
      zima_blizko wins t1092210

      One thing surprised me a little bit. I feel like it really hurts and wasnt feeling confortable. Now 30min later is much more better, because i also cash 205$.

      During the week i go through some sngs, mostly focused on the buble and 3 simillar stacks plus one bigger chipleader. + have one skype sesn. And i think this counts as a succes.


      And i have also some non poker related things to say. We (my GF and me) bought tickets to London. Flying 8.december for 3 nights. We will visit some friends and do some christmass shopping.
      Meybe i will go also to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


      And i guess it is all for now. See You later and good luck at the tables.
