      Welcome to my blog. 20/05/14 16:00

      I'm going to try post here several times a week. Things like hands, graphs, hud displays etc. if someone could tell me how to copy my stats on PT4 this way I can show you all where Im at now.
      I need all the help and support I can get off all you guys/girls.

      Im trying to take my game from a recreational, playing when I feel like it attitude to the next level. Iv read most of the articles on here up to silver whether I understand them fully is another thing : ) and like most of us id rather play poker than study.

      I'm now refreshing myself with all this site has to offer including the videos which are great and live sessions which I don't think I could be bothered with before

      I'm hoping to get private coaching as well, so I look forward to see what will come of it, and of course I'll keep updating my PPP

      Thanks for reading, check in soon

      Do you mean graphs or statistics about how you play (VPIP etc)?
      Either way, I think your best bet is to make a screenshot and upload it to an image hosting website like imgur. You can then insert the image in your post.

      I'll be following, btw. What formats and limits do you usually play?

      Hey

      Welcome to the blogs. :)

      To display images directly in your post, you would need to use the "Insert Image" function rather than "Insert Link".



      Regards

      Additionally, you have the option of covering your images with spoiler tags, if you believe that they would otherwise stretch out your post too much. That's what I have been doing in my own blog for a while now.

      So you're playing NL25 right now?
      What are your bankroll management guidelines?

      A week since my last blog and here's how it went:

      Day 1-2 I saw miner loses around 3 buy ins on NL5 zoom. Days 3-6 I clawed them back, plus another 2. Day 7 I found tilt : ( :f_frown: . I think I could put it down to poker overload

      Read over my old copy's of notes. Trying to focus on topics like:

      # Starting hands
      # odds & outs
      # 3 betting

      Plus, watched several Videos. Particularly Champions stand up one more time than the rest, got my interest. Bit annoying to find out I don't have the status to watch the rest! Will have to wait till next month :D .

      Also had a coaching which went really well. I feel a lot more confident how to youse equilab in my review sessions which can only help. Also got converted away from thinking in odds to thinking in Equity, personally I think its easer to grasp.

      So you can see where the information overload came from lol.

      PLAN OF ATTACK 2 WEEKS
      # Don't bite off, more than I can chew
      # Play on FR games for 2 weeks
      # Consider EV in my game
      # Review sessions
      # Post hands
      # Goto do coaching homework to Booo!

      That's it folks!

      I Put the CO limp on a medium low pair, I'm slightly ahead of his range. A raise is the best option.

      pollox84 bets 5 BB, H A I T250 calls 5 BB

      I think a Cbet is the best option as I showed aggression pre flop. Folding to any raise and re-evaluate turn if called.

      Bet for as much value I could get.
