      Hi! Short introduction: I am a 21 year old Computer Engeneering student from Romania. I have been playing poker for a long time and made a lot of money thanks to Pokerstrategy. However the end of 2013 was pretty bad, because I lost my motivation. I got to the point where I only played nl2 zoom and on autopilot. Then my mother lost her job, university was giving me a tough time, because my lack of motivation and around December 17-18 I realised that I was going on a bad road.
      I saw it clearly! I needed to get back on the right track! So in the end of the year I was playing only NL10FR, in January NL10-30, February mostly NL20-30 and some NL50. March just NL20-50. I managed to cash out 950$ this year to pay for rent and living expences.

      My bankroll is around 1200$, I don't know exactly.

      Winning the free coaching would be awesome, I was thinking about how important would be to get a review of my game from a pro.

      So far this year was good, I was pretty motivated, however the volume I put in wasn't that good. :f_confused: I have a "poker diary" where I wrote goals, br, cashouts, daily goals, weekly goals, new learned theory, identified leaks. This month I will write those thing here :s_biggrin:

      Goals:
      :diamond: Play daily 4 hours (120 hours total)
      :diamond: Watch daily pokerstrategy videos
      :diamond: Hand review + posting every Monday
      :diamond: Go train for Marathon (May 5th)
      :diamond: Play NL50 most of the time

      Thank you for reading and good luck at the tables! :s_biggrin:

      Sorry for not updating! :)

      I played 1 hour of poker in the last three days, as I said I had a lot of stuff to do. It was a great weekend. I feel motivated for marathon and for poker to.

      Here is my graph for that one hour: April 4



      BR around 1350$

      Today - April 7
      I am at the Uni form 10 to 18 so not much time left for things I want to do.

      :club: Train hard
      :club: Play as much as possible X
      :club: Use my time wisely(no procrastination)
      :club: Review hands April 1-4 + Post

      I haven't updated for a while. Here is my graph on Pacific for the first 9 days:



      22 hours + I played around 3-4 hours on other sites to. So far bad volume for this month. I have to stop going out all the time.

      At least training for Marathon goes well.

      I started playing on Stars to, currently my BR is almost 1600$.

      So far I'm behind a lot on my challenge, but I think it's possible to recover. :s_biggrin:

      Today:
      :club: Play the Sunday Storm Anniversary + other MTTs + some Cash.
      :club: Study for University
      :club: 20-30 min training for Marathon X

      So yesterday didn't manage to get in the money in none of my MTTs, so BR=1550$.

      Today i already played around 2 hours on Pacific and half on an other site. So far this month I have 260$ profit, which is ok. However I'm confident I could win a lot more with a decent volume.

      I'm going to train now, then one more session for today.

      Graphs so far:

      Thanks for you update :)

      Putting in a decent volume is sometimes hard to everyone, but unfortunately, it's the only way to succeed, so GOGOGOGO :) and don't look back.
