      Hey guys !

      Greetings from Romania ! :D

      My name is Alex, I`m a 24 yo student and I live to play poker !
      First memory I have about poker is about 8-9 year ago, somewhere at a hotel with my mates during a highschool trip in the mountains. I remember seing them all wasted and acting like mafia mobs, throwing with money ( 2$ BY cash game lol ) all over around, and I was instantly hooked ! -- ofcourse I lost almost all my money, but the thrill .... that thrill was fucking better then anything I have ever tasted, felt it or smell it untill that moment !!! It was the supreme shit !!!


      In not time I was playing all the freerolls I could find. The finals were few weeks ahead, and I was playing online poker forgetting about finals.
      Highschool ended,( I finished wih 9 out of 10 :D ) college came and I went in different town, leaving my parents, and making a new fresh start.

      Notable events since I started college:

      - In 2011, I got 1.6k in a mtt ( I was a fish with hopes back then :P )
      After that I moved from college campus into an apartment with one grinder dude and 2 other dudes.

      - I started grinding HU on stars and make decent profit but not a single moment of studying poker.

      - In 2013, I moved with an full time IT dude, who grinds as a part time.

      - 2 months after that I switched on william hill to use my afiliate advantages

      - Now I grind 20e-30e HUSNG with no clue what bankroll management is... lol



      So why am I opening this blog ?
      Well, I ve been bloggin on romanian comunity from the start of 2013 and now I contacted Gordon for a coaching oportunity and my first task is to start a blog and keep it updated by posting every single day, with no exception !

      Some things that you should or u shouldn t expect from this blog...

      - I don t use hud, so by the end of these 60 days I want to learn about it
      - I hate blogs where there is only poker discussion ! I will tell you stories about my life, I like TED discutions and that kind of discutions, so I will personalize this blog with all kind of mottos and things that I consider good for improving.
      - I am about 95 kg ( 209 pounds ) so I want to do smth about that



      One more thing that u should know about me:
      I`m laaaaaaaaaazy as fuck !!! So 60 days will be hell for me hahahahha



      That being said, I declare this DAY 1 !!! GO GO GO

      PS: I love music so this will be a poker-motto-dancing blog ! :) )))

      Hi Alex and greetings to you to!

      I don't see from that photo that 95kg is so bad, but you would know better obviously.
      What I do think this blog will be informative but fun as well so I'll subscribe to that! :heart:

      Best regards and have fun,

      Mal.

      Hey there ! Me again :D

      Today I think the nature tried to put me to the test. I went to college this morning and the sun was smilling, and the people too, and the chicks were everywhere like Mister Smith in Matrix hahahahah... So hard to grind with this temptation !
      I have finals starting next week and I have to katchup a few things there and there. Lucky me, I have communication skills and I got some courses from this chick who wants me soo bad I think hahahah ( me keeping cool :D )

      Yestarday, the money I withdraw from poker came into bank account and now I search to buy PT4. I had it 2 times before on trial and I only use it to see if I m +/- EV and that s it lol… I ll look for some tips and tricks on the internet and give it a try.

      Grinding : Start !

      update after short session of 70 minutes:

      Bad trafic, that s why I usually don t play at this hour, but I wanted to make minimum volume at least, cuz I want to unblock a 1.5k $ bonus at the end of June :D ( 580 000 points till now, and I need 750 000 )

      Anyway, as I was sayin... bad trafic and after 5 minutes of waiting, a reg-fish sitted me. He s been sitting me since I ve switched to william hill in november.
      I ve never payed him attention, but today I snaped and got mad at him and 80% of today`s games were with him. I smashed him, ending with 10-3 :D

      His graph

      Result: + 160$

      Grinding: Stop!
      Masterchef Romania: Start :) ))



      Cheers !

      Forgive me father for i have sinned !

      Woke up late today, and don t know why, I was full of adrenaline.
      Now after I ve stoped playing I can analize every detail but when I was hypnotized, I couldn t do anything to stop.

      First sign of tilt: My leg stars dancing
      When my leg starts dancing is clear as cristal that I shouldn t play poker.
      What did I do ?
      I ve played poker !
      What did I play ?
      6max cash game
      Who s the idiot ?
      I am !!!

      God knows how, I ve managed to finish after an hour BE but I was like playing football with skates. Biggest donk ever

      I confess in front of you, and I m ashamed...

      I always think that I know a little bit about cash game but it always turn out the same

      Stop poker for today.
      I m going out to look for a present for a birthday party

      I went afterall at a pokerclub with one friend and play cash. It went pretty good, I had a good run. I was getting value from every fish and no suckout on the river hihihihi

      After 2 and a half hours the fishes went broke and the table was gone but I got a nice profit of about 300$.
      Online + live it s still a losing day but it s nice to minimize the loss hihihiih

      I hope you keep this blog going for a while Alex, it makes me laugh! :heart:

      ...I just hope that's what it was supposed to do!...

      Oh and if you bought a T-shirt drunk that's not a bad result is it, it could have been much more embarrassing than that, (can you tell I've done a similar thing yet?) :D

      hahahahah

      More details pls Mal :) ))

      when I prank my dad, he doesn t think I m funny, so dunno what to say about that hahahah

      I hope I ll keep this blog updated. I want 100% but in the same time I know myself and I know how easy is for me to get confy and quit.

      That s why if I manage to get the coaching with Gordon it ll be my highest point in poker and I hope I ll use that as fuel for me to continue further and look for an higher point and so on and so on :D

      I love getting feedback, so don t get shy guys hahhaha !!

      PS: first broken promise: I didn t post those hands I talked about.
      well, feel free to throw rocks :(

      Got home last night pretty tired and went straight to bed.
      So as I was sayin, I went to this yoga thing with my girl and there were 5-6 people.
      The speaker was some romanian chick who s been traveling to India and Belgium and all over the world and got some certificates and stuff.
      This year came back and now she s an cosultant and 3 or 4 other things, she says.

      But all I remember from this workshop is that she could touch her ankles with her nose, and her legs

      --- breaking funny thing: I was just wordering some food and the lady put me on hold and she hung up hahahah ----

      and her legs put together... hmm how do I say this.... like a soldier pose and then bow to the ground keepind the legs straight :D
      Daaamn she was so flexible !!! I sure do like yoga now ! hahahaha

      Today I had one exam and after that I went to buy joggin kit for summer:
      don t pay attention to that crazy look hahahaha I m a psycho :s_rolleyes:


      In october I want to run at this marathon with 2 friends. About 6 miles each. And I want this to be the motivation I needed to get outside and run.

      Hard to grind when it s so damn sunny outside but someone has to do it right ? :D

      Off I go !
      Cheers !
