      Hello!
      Im not pretty good english talker but i'll give my best so:
      My name is Luka 22years (almost 23) and im from S-LOVEnia. Im in love with adrenaline sports and poker. I use to ride downhill and right there i meet friend who made a lot of money at poker in 2009. I knew the basics and made few deposits and took some free money BUSTO everything :) . I was playing nl10-20 in 2K12-13 where i made arround 800€ jeeej my biggest amount at poker :) . In January 2k13 i heard for an poker office in Ljubljana that was searchin for another poker player. I went there and meet Skodljivec and Schnitzelfish. After few months of lossing at nl10,20 Skodljivec impressed me to PLO i said f**k it why not lets try this game (Skodljivec graph at that moment):

      So i start playing plo4 125deep at ipoker in 18k hands i lost 200$ (EV line was arround -50$). I move to stars plo5 and made a good month with Skoljivec's help:

      It was time to make a plo10 shoot:

      After that i tilted and have no will to get back at plo5 and it was a summer i quit pokeroffice (i was getting there every day with train arround 70km). In summer i get 1month(student) work but after 2week i broke my both arms with a bycicle :) yeah shit happens :) . After rehab i get 3motnhs at the same job till the end of december. So this is where all the fun begins, back to my own office and plenty time to GRIND :D


      Plans for Janury:
      :spade: Make at least 5k hands per week
      :heart: Watch coaching videos
      :diamond:P ost my own hands for discussions
      :club: Watch other hands and think how i wuold play them and see if im correct
      :spade: Benefit coaching hours
      :heart: NOT TO TILT!!!

      Januray graph:

      I will post graphs once per week. If i'll have any interesting hand i'll post it here.

      And offcourse i hope my microstakes crushing wont loke like this:




      Some bike stuff:






      Have a nice day and GL to all.

      Luka

      Hey FerlichL,

      Wow. That is an epic first post. I can identify with the bike. My youngest brother was a downhill mountain biker who was always wrapping himself around trees. :f_biggrin:

      GL with PLO. Imho the toughest of the poker games (well for me anyway).

      Happy Grinding

      I didn't know that you were getting to the office by train! That's dedication! :f_o: You're destined to succeed at PLO despite all the variance as you're working hard, have withered so much with bravery and were in the same office with awesome teachers. GL!

      One of friends called me today for snow-trikeing and i can only say: ONE OF THE BEST THINGS :) :)
      Unfortunately the company witch was making those bikes is bankruped and you cannot buy a new one and hard to get used one.


      Plans for weekend: snowboarding and learn my GF how to snowboard :)

      (Sorry for my bad english :) )
      Have a nice day and GL

      Very nice blog Sir :f_biggrin:

      Will surely follow your progress.

      As you are from Slovenia and a snowboarder you should definatelly try out a resort called Nassfeld (Austria) if you like riding powder :f_love: They also have quite nice kickers there (2 kicker lines - easy & medium) and also a small rail park.

      GL at the tables - crush them :s_biggrin:
