      Hi,

      I think this is my 3rd blog but I am planning to stick to this one.I have been playing poker for 2 years and had a lot of ups and downs through limits mostly because I didn't know how to approach the game.At one time I was playing 30's but after some bad run I had to go down and see where I am standing so I got staked for 7's.I want to say that this thing was the smartest thing I could do(in fact SuperUorMe suggested this :D ).I played 2k games and here is the graph:

      After this we continued a staking deal for 15's.I played ~100 games so far but I will post a graph when I hit 1k games.

      So first plan for this year is to study a lot and move in limits only when I have a good ROI on a nice sample.

      Another thing I want to do this year is take some students that play like 1$ games and make some coaching deals for like 1 year because sometimes I don't fell like playing poker but I would do something to make money in the long run.I have a student all ready and I think it will be great after the end of the deal.

      I also try to learn German on an app called duolinguo(saw it on a post of Schnitzelfisch) and I am at level 6.

      I don't know how often I will update the blog but I will post when something important happens.

      cya

      thanks..yeah I hope so too :)

      I didn't set any particular goals but I am trying to make a habit..like right now I am planning to play 6 hours a day Mon-Fri and reviewing all mark hands before start the first session.It might take up to 7h a day witch I think is good.Saturday and Sunday will see..I might play a session or study a bit.

      With German I am going for 30 min every day..after I can make a bit of conversation I probably open a blog in German section to practice it more..will see

      15's still swingy today had a +80$ day after being +162$ at the end of first session.not a problem waiting that heater and when it comes maybe I will ship something from BoP too :D . I will take the weekend off the tables and start next week strong.

      Nothing happening lately just playing and reviewing my game on a daily basis which is a good thing for me and I start to enjoy more the game.I want to show you a 2 graphs.First one is a graph of 15's last year and the second one is since I started the last block on 15's.

      and now from this year:

      I really feel like I improved a lot since I moved here.I had a coaching of 2 hours with superuorme and I learned a lot of new things that changed my game but I learned how to look at the game form a different perspective.I think that coaching was a wake up call in poker for me.

      btw I hope you see why I am waiting for the heater :D

      For poker player its somewhat questionable to keep weekends as holidays as games tend to be best then. Of course understandable if poker is just hobby or minor source of income.

      How are games in 15$ limit these days? Need of table selection? Anyway good luck with this blog :)

      it is a really nice app.you have a lot of lesson where you learn different words and take tests of 20 question where you can be wrong up to 3 question and still pass the test.after passing the tests it will unlock another lesson.the tests are translation from german to english and the other way around writing and speaking.i would recommend it

      yeah that is true but I am trying different things and see how is best.I was think of taking off 2 weekends a month.

      the games are not that bad but i table select.i had regs marked as a big winning small winning, BE and loosing but i am trying to change that in a way that is more helpful because I see some good regs that you can steal even ATC or push looser in KO and I think i should mark them by these factors because it will be better to know what edge i have vs them.the games are definitely beatable.

      Hello!

      Nice blog and I'll definitely be following your progress!

      I looked at the 2 $15.00 9 man graphs and I can definitely see a big difference. Are those 15 dollar turbos mixed with KO or...?

      Take Care,

      Maythany

      Thanks..i played 15's ko's (turbo and normal) and 15's normal

      Made another deal that involves 4 coaching sessions with milan which is great..I feel very confident about beating the 15's but I want to prepare for the 30's and from my point of view milan is the best coach to do that.I so the difference in play since he coached me last time.


      German app is set for 30 min a day work and have been slaking with it as with poker last 2 weeks so I have to recover but I am planning to work a lot this week.

      here is the graph after i moved to 7's
