      Hi!


      I am 24 year old from Sweden.
      I have a blog in the swedish corner, but decided to put one up in here to, I think I will get a lot more feedback here.
      I also hope to improve on my english (should have listen to mom and stayed in school, but no no!).

      So, I've been playing poker for a couple of years now and in Oktober 2013 I decided to take it more serious and started to analys and put in some volume.
      Before Oktober 2013 I only played about 6k-10k hands/month, I also had months I didn't play at all.
      But, since I started take it seriously I've been putting in about 2 times as many hands, and I still try to played more hands every month.
      So, this year I've played 100k hands so far, hit it yesterday, with a solid winrate.

      I've played all my hands since Oktober on a swedish site called svenskaspel, my main game is shorthanded, I started out on NL50kr, which is about NL8$, I dont really know when I took a step up to NL100kr(NL16$), in Februari 2014 I started to play some NL200kr (NL32$) and in march I started fulltime on this stake, I've cashed out every month since Februari and now after cashing out in April I'm left with about 80bi for NL200kr, so in May I will start to take shots at NL400 (NL60$).


      My goals for the month,
      :diamond: 25k hands

      Weekly goals,
      :diamond:D o 1 session review
      :diamond:P ost 10 hands


      I will put up some more goals in the next few days :)

      This is my yearly graph of SH,




      I hope you guys can read and understand everything.
      I will try to update as often I can.
      GL all! :heart:

      Hey kevsaf,

      Welcome to the English blogs. :)

      Lol. I should have listened to my mom too. :tongue:

      But that is one serious graph. 20BB/100h and a positive red line. Glad you play on a Swedish room otherwise I would be telling you to remind me to avoid you at all costs. :f_eek:

      Awesome work and keep it up.

      Thank you Lazza :f_grin:

      I will probably move to another room in the next few months, the traffic is so low at higher stakes.
      I also want to start grinding in the morning :f_grin:

      Nice journey.
      Looking forward to succeed at other sites and climb limits.

      I wonder is there anything specific about the svenskaspel (rakeback) or the player pool?
      When I was for some period in Sweden I met a guy that played poker on svenskaspel as summer job and the results were great.

      *Few tips on how to maintain such a redline + blueline would be splendid.
      or a video.

      GL at tables.

      It's only 2.5% rake and a soft competition.

      or a video.


      I actually think the redline comes from exploiting regs, I try to find tables with only regs at it, I like it because I'm improving much more.
      I will look into it more and try to write something down or make a video about.
      I probably need some time for this, It took me about 5 minutes to write this post xD


      Thank you and goodluck at the tables Ilioas!

      I bet that English for you is easier than Swedish for me because of svengelska. :tongue:
      It took me around 2 swedish courses in 4 month and then a summer to practice it to master at basic level.
      Now I probably have forgotten it because of I do not use it.
      Nevertheless I try to refresh it by Sälskapresa episodes.

      Didn't play yesterday because I played bad and run pretty bad the day before yesterday.

      So, new month, lets take a look back on April.

      Overall I played good, at the end of the graph is where a reg started to 3bet me every hand, we played 5 tables and 4 of the tables he sat directly to my left, which made it pretty hard to fight back, but feel I learn a lot from it.
      Fight back a reg who has position on me all the time is hard, but I thought to myself that this is a pretty good spot to train myself to play good aggressive poker out of position.

      I think I dropped about 4-5bi vs him. Today I review all my hands from that session and I made some changes in my out of position game, so thanks to him I found a lot of leaks in my game and I'm ready to take a fight again.

      I'm going to play about 4x1.5 h session today and my main focus will be on pots out of position, so I will probably post some hands tonight or at the morning tomorrow :)

      Aprils graph,


      GL everyone :heart:

      1/4 sessions done.


      SB is fish, he play 46/17/0.0/1.2 (VPIP/PFR/3B/total AF), so he's very passive both pre and post.
      My question is, should I,
      1. bet/fold turn and river
      2. check turn and bet/fold river
      If number 2, what size would be good?

      My thoughts was to go for number 2 in the moment, but after I reveiwed the hand, I like number 1 more and bet about halfpot on turn and bet about the same on the river. But, if I bet halfpot on the turn I can't bet/fold on the river, the pot will be about 75bb's and he is left with about 50bb's. So maybe the best way is to check the turn and bet/fold river, after all, he is passive so i don't expekt him to shove the river as a bluff.
      So after I review a bit more, I take line number 2.

      Is there maybe a better line?? :f_eek:

      Wow this I deserved!!

      Was going to x/raise the flop, villain is super aggro and spewy, he will bet almost everytime on the flop.
      But why do I check the turn!!

      I played 3/4 session, I won't play the last one. I don't feel I can play my A-game right now, I'm too tired and in a badrun.

      Challenge!



      So, I run terrible and play pretty bad too at the moment, so I need something to cheer me up and challenge myself.
      So I'm going to make a bankroll challenge, I'm taking 12bi and start at NL100kr (NL16$), which is one stake under where I use to play.

      The plan look like this,

      Starting at 192$ move up as soon as I have 192$+3bi on NL32$,
      I'll move down if I loose those 3bi. This will keep on until I feel I have 0 edge left. So lets see how fast and how high I can go!

      NL16 196$ - 288$
      shots NL32 288$ - 384$
      NL32 384$ - 576$
      shots NL64 576$ - 768$
      NL64 768$ - 1152$
      shots NL128 1152$ -

      And so on.

      Wish my luck!!
