      Hello everyone. Welcome to my new blog.


      About My Blog :P

      I made this blog to keep track of my goals/progress, post hands and discuss strategy/hands.

      About Myself :D

      26 Years old,married and father of a beatifull girl.I'm from Greece but recently moved to Germany to live here with my Family before 4 month.The reason of course is the crisis in Greece.

      My Poker Career so far X(

      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 :rolleyes:

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

      Challenge Plan :]

      Ahhh and something more!!!I play only Zoom.

      Deposit 70$ 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$
      Move up to NL25 when my roll is 750$ Move down to NL10 when roll moves down to 525$.Play at least 150k hand's at NL25 and have good profit.
      Move up to NL50 when my roll is 2000$ Move down to NL25 when roll moves down to 1000$.Play at least 100k Hand's at NL50 at have profit.

      Short-Term Goal :s_biggrin:

      [] Play at least 65k hands per month
      [] Try to review my game at least 2-3 hours per week.
      [] Post 1 hand every day in Hand Evaluations.

      Long-Term Goal :s_cool:

      [] Make a living from poker.



      This is my second or thrird time to try to make blog i think.I hope this time to make it.

      Hi Moneymachine,

      Seems like you have good plans this time :D Got only one question about it; How are you going to work out your game during your play besides the hand analyzing?

      Your first graphs seem nice, it looks obvious that you are skyrocketing from NL2 quite soon :f_cool:

      Solid plan.

      I'll be following.

      How is your mental game?
      Can you handle the swings?

      Best of luck,

      "The Mental Game of Poker" by Jared Tendler.

      The forum threads:
      The Quick Guide to Skyrocketing Your Poker and Life Productivity
      +++Q&A with Jared Tendler!!+++

      The on-line version if Tendler's book is less than 1 NL 25 BI, so if it saves you even that one, you're ahead for all time.

      Wow. Do u plan to continue this blog with your progress and graphs etc. ?

      Would be nice to see how things are going.
      And it´d interesting to see how your coaching plans outlines.

      Hi guys,
      It's good to hear that things are going well!.

      Just as a reminder, our forum principles require that you not advertise external coaches -- even as a student.

      If you're looking for a coach, there are plenty as PokerStrategy.com.

      Thanks for understanding,

      U going to close his blog if its not an PS-Coach, and he continues to write about this?
