      Hey guys,

      I am 24 years old and I am playing for 4 years and I am f*cking bad. I am still playing nl20 breakeven at iPoker Bill Hill - thank god for good RB deal around 60% (this is not spam pls pkrstrategy dont kill me).

      I used to play nl50 and even nl100 at a time, but I lost everytime and get back to nl20- 9 table. FT hold my money -2000 for year. But I m on nl20 for 2 years my roll is now 1800 (had 3500 at top), I used to withdraw money but not that much - I like safe BR management. Now I am playing 6tables.

      I graduated from social work this year and now I am working at Law office and I dont have a clue why would somebody care to read this :D Oh Law office is OK I have plenty of time for poker study here thanks to hmcloud.

      Ok so here is a problem I studied a lot - read Easy game by baluga, watch some videos DC and I thought I am getting better. I am playing first time after 5 months nl20€ and oh boy - They just fu*ck me on the tables, without love - down 600 euros but thank you jesus for RB weakly.

      My biggest issues: constructing ranges, maybe calling to lightly in some spots, applying learned info in the game and ocassionaly some minor tilt issues - not concentrating enough (not throwing chairs as I used to - That really happened Ive lost coinflip at 1$ SnG and boom :D )

      I dont think I am that bad, I can pretty good hand read, play against fish, I can play pretty aggressive. I am not complete moron that is what I am trying to say Im just bleeding money in some spots. I am analysing my game I am trying to get better.

      My amusing goal is to have 10.000$ (I think it can be done with some winnings and RB - I am used to play long hours) by 31.12.2014 and anything 5.000$ below I am ending this winning career.

      I love the game, I would love some help guys I am just fu*king frustrated to just keep loosing and hope that RB will rescue me.

      I will post my stats, my hands, everything - even size of my penis

      Sorry about my english

      Thank you guys verry much.

      Hey arn1e,

      Welcome to the blogs. :)

      Lol. It's fine to mention you have a nice RB deal, just don't post the details.

      And by all means, post your stats, post your hands but please not the dangler. Although it's one of my biggest leaks, but then again I'm getting old. :tongue:

      GL and Happy Fishing

      Laz

      Hi, arn1e...
      Break-even at NL20 doesn't sound bad -- it is certainly better than losing...

      As you can see, I have moved your post to the blogging section.
      I'm looking forward to seeing the graphs and results.

      Not to argue, but blogs aren't useless -- they help in lots of ways.
      They help you think about what you're doing, and they help others to gain insight into how others approach the game.

      Best of luck!

      You say you play at ipoker. Why not play elsewhere where they have looser tables. ;)

      Thank you for all your answers guys,

      but its too shame you dont want to see my dangler :D

      well breakeven is not bad, but I want to win finally - I made profit 3300 euros last year but not in Poker- just RB saved me, in poker I was down 2k. Dangler is not my only leak :D

      Thanks for move into blog.

      Well this is this month graph and report, hope you enjoy it and yell at me. I started to play little looser preflop as I used to - I was 22/20

      BTW: Guys what do you think is better for me ? nl20 6table or speed poker 4 table nl 20

      Without checking your stats, I would say that you should play the one that feels better for you. :)

      Hi. Too loose from utg and mp probobly too tight from bu and sb. too much 3bet. Too much cbet flop and turn. Too much defand vs cbets.

      hmm i think 37% fold to flop cbet could be ok, but probably too loose if you are not playing Turn and River well (and also because your PF range is so wide and far weaker than the average nitty reg).

      you don't seem to be very positionally aware. Do note that BU >>> CO >> MP > UTG
      There's a huge difference between having only 2 players left, with absolute position postflop, and having 5 other players left to act, and all of them can easily 3-bet you and force you to fold your all your crappy hands in your wide 20% range

      Thanks again guys for posts,

      well I have played some few hands nl20 zoom and seem better suited to me I am not playing that loosely, and I won something so its not such a disaster. Its just 4k hands so I will not make quick judgement, but it seem like there is more fishes at that tables vs normal. What do you guys think ?

      About that PF and UTG, yes you are right I was playing waaay more loose. Here are mine images by position in nl20 and nl20 speed poker.

      What are your stats guys ?





      and BTW tommorow night Ill have a date :P wish me good luck, it wont be disaster like last time cause I already seen this girl... Never believe photos - they are bluffs ! That is free advice for me.

      lol yeah insta winning high stakes player :D

      but lets be honest I think this is only an upswing. Of course its better preflop but I still have lots of leaks. I have hard time constructing preflop ranges, when I see board thats ok and I think I am calling too much and too lightely. I dont think people bluff enough at this limit. What are your thoughts ?

      I am considering buying hm2 and note caddy 2, is it worth the money ?

      Thanks
