      Hello all. This is my blog.
      It will be great (eventually).
      I have been playing poker for over 10 years. I mainly play live at the moment however I am going to challenge myself to beat the online game from the beginning. My plan is as follows :
      I will be playing on a tracked account at William Hill.
      I will start with a zero balance and no player points.
      I will begin by playing the pokerstrategy daily freerolls.
      Any winnings will be taken to the 0.01c.0.02c tables.
      I will move up to 0.02/0.04c when I have 30 BI (€120).
      I will then move up levels when I reach 30 BI and move down when I have 25 BI.
      So a straight forward enough plan. I just wondered if it’s possible. I suspect it will be fairly difficult if not impossible.
      I have not been around the forum for a while. So I had better catch up.
      Anyway good luck at the tables all and hope to see you soon.

      I started last night. I finished 99th in the PS Daily Freeroll at William Hill.

      Cashed for £0.13.

      Not too bad a start.

      This is how I exited the tournament :

      iPoker - $0.00+$0.00|<> NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: 177,390
      UTG+1: 21,690
      MP: 63,439
      MP+1: 15,398
      Hero (CO): 7,916
      BTN: 38,664
      SB: 32,845
      BB: 6,584

      8 players post ante of 120, SB posts SB 600, BB posts BB 1,200

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2,760) Hero has A:heart: T:diamond:

      UTG calls 1,200, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 7,796 and is all-in, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls 6,596

      Flop: (18,352, 2 players) 7:club: 8:spade: 4:diamond:

      Turn: (18,352, 2 players) 4:club:

      River: (18,352, 2 players) 6:club:

      UTG shows 8:diamond: T:club: (Two Pair, Eights and Fours) (Pre 28%, Flop 85%, Turn 93%)
      Hero mucks A:heart: T:diamond: (One Pair, Fours) (Pre 72%, Flop 15%, Turn 7%)
      UTG wins 18,352

      I felt slightly unlucky here. Oh well.

      Roll on the next one...

      Hey Mullet1,

      Welcome to the blogs. :)

      Nice start. Are you going to freeroll until you have a certain amount before hitting NL2 ?

      Definitely following

      Thanks Laz,

      Im going to freeroll only, i dont think i will use brm until i reach NL4.

      I have played PLO8 before so may use the first of my winnings (hopefully) on the smallest of these tables.

      Unfortunately i am not able to play as much as i would wish.

      On the 31st July I attempted a big squeeze however I was well and truly caught, lol :

      9 players post ante of 25, SB posts SB 100, BB posts BB 200

      Pre Flop: (pot: 525) Hero has A:heart: Q:club:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 raises to 400, MP calls 400, fold, fold, Hero raises to 6,215 and is all-in, fold, fold, UTG+2 raises to 10,199, fold

      River: (13,355, 2 players) 2:spade:

      UTG+2 shows Q:spade: Q:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Twos) (Pre 70%, Flop 80%, Turn 84%)
      UTG+2 wins 17,339

      Ive just started tonights tournament so i will see how it goes.

      Good luck at the table everyone.
