      Hello everybody,
      I am 23 y/o from Lithuania, studying IT at KTU. Not much to be added :D
      My roommate introduced me to poker few weeks ago, I walked in on bunch guys playing poker so i joined in (i had played some years ago on facebook :D ) i was instantly hooked up and ended up winning some cash :s_cool: I finished games in + every time and my friend referred me into this site. So i decided to deposit 29€ to Betfred poker and see what is going to happen :D

      My goals are:
      Achieving higher status here so i could read and improve.
      Win enough money to buy new PC and PT ( i started my month trial and got new what my pc is below minimal requirements)
      Once i reach certain status start reading and watching videos

      Bankroll: 29€

      to be honest i expected more from Silver, went through some of the articles and didn't find anything really help full. Will need to check the videos. Anyway i hope to make gold in no time, cause today tourneys on betfred started at 13EET (some sort of maintenance) so had nothing to play, decided go for cash. NL20 HU was doing great but lost like 40€ against tilted player who was raising 5-50BB preflop :f_cry: so i decided to take my money back at NL50 :f_mad: was winning big but lost set<set 140€ pot :f_cry: went on NL100 did great and even made profit but lost 110€ kk<77 (set on turn) made a small break and got back to NL100 because i was doing great and after like and hour even made 30€ profit + 20€ i made from bonus :heart: so at 13EET had 250€ in my roll and 1300points richer :s_cool: yet i hope i won't have to do this again because that was scary and if there will be no tourneys i will just simply go play some SNGs :D I am happy everything turned out to be OK

      Played 3 tourneys so far today:
      5€ rebuy (site crashed at addon time so i was sitting with 2k stack on 80/160blinds, couldn't pull the trigger :D )
      2€ rebuy got ITM for 14€
      10€ freezout 1/74 for 202€


      current graph:

      Bankroll: 443€

      I don't think i will be playing anymore today, will need to study and get a nice rest today, feeling tired :s_zZz:

      dat picture made me lol for real :megusta:

      decided to join 4 tourneys after stuDYING, made ITM in just 1, playing 1table seemed boring also wanted to gather some points to upgrade to gold status so added 1 50/1p table played against weak opponent made 100 from 30 really easy, then lost flush<flush since he was weak i re bought for 100 and joined another 50/1p table weak opponent also. played just 338hands and made 236pound profit :s_love: :f_love:
      that's it for today

      bankroll: 704€

      there were only few tourneys at 9am so i mixes up with 2tables of nl100 HU, was down 200€ in ~ 300hands so made a little brake, got back and decided to mix HU and 6max exchanged Hu for second 6max table and in ~200hands won my 200€ back and even made ~ 90€ profit.
      also finished 2/17 in 10€ tourney for additional 46€

      Hi. Super impresive start. What's your experiance in HU and ring games? Do you use tracker? How you know if opp is weak? Maybe you next isildur :) ziurek neperdek. Sekmes.

      hello dooleslovs, all my experience comes from playing ring games with my friends live :facepalm: i can't use a tracker because my pc is too old, but i am planing to withdraw some money for better pc and pokertracker. well i think opponent is weak when he is using different size in preflop raise, like if he raises 2bb with weak holdings and 3-4bb with better (as from my experience nobody mixed ranges, would be harder in that case), i also like to call these bigger bets (3-4bets also) with suited connectors like 56s 67s j10s because for e.g with 56s against hand like aks, aqs we have 39-40% equity and it flops really well and it will be followed by c-bet and we have got great implied odds
      preflop hero raise 3bb villain reraises to 12bb hero calls (pot 24bb)
      on flop it will be followed by cbet (12-20bb) and we have no decision if we hit we stay if board misses us we fold. we will hit to win a hand like 1/3 of times. in 3times pre we invest totally 36bbs lets say 1/3times we will win so we will take 12+12(if he cbets 1/2pot)=24bb(if he cbets 60-70% pot lets say we win30/36bb) on flop so 2/3we invested but here comes the implied odds, he might stack us off with ak on 56k board or we might win more if we hit flush,straight and against tilted guy or guy who raises 5bb pre, he won't fold overpair or top pair top kicker
      so overall i think it's +ev

      p.s tikiuosi neperdet,dekui :f_love:
