      Hi Poker fans!
      I am Gnananandan from India.
      This is my first ever blog so bear with me.
      I am a doctor by profession and i started playing poker about an year ago.
      I started with a 10$ deposit and as most others, started in 2NL. Followed a SSS.
      And as you expect got busted in one month i guess, although i didnt play poker that frequent. Then deposited another 10$ and found FL to be interesting, as you dont go bust in few hands..

      And i think its more of skill in FL than Luck! and NL is more of Luck than Skill. May be wrong..But, Dont tell the NL people, they may come for a fight! :D

      Ok then i started reading the articles and became a Full ring Tight passive Fish! And i never knew that. I thought i was a TAG :f_cry: (Dont know whom to blame)
      I didnt play that often until March 2014. BR-20$
      I Dont know how but with the stats of 24/5/0.00001 :P i managed to get past 5/10c and played 10/20c and got to 100$ :f_love:
      I was afraid of 6max(more variance! ?( )
      Then i started posting hands in the forum.. and saw Avataren, Dawnfall, Yohan and Firsttsunami analyzing them..

      And then the tragedy started...Downswing. I shifted down, but it wont leave me..
      BR-40$
      And i forgot to mention, i was playing only in my Tab that time.. No stats, etc.. HUD? seriously whats that? :f_confused:

      Then one day Ava..PM me that he could help me with 6max.
      He gave me an ORC and introduced to the concept of no limping! (Seriously?!, Then what to do with 33 or suited baby Aces UTG? :D )
      He told me i should stick to that chart 100% :f_eek:
      Then i followed it, and WOW!!...As you guess...
      Its the Downswing winning again! I am down to 20$ again. Loss of >500BB(from 100$ to 20$) And this lasted for 20k hands.. He suggested me shifting down further to 2/4c. But i escaped at the verge of it and did good later :)
      I made friends with Dawnfall too.. And he helped me with the stats, some nice suggestions and some postflop stuff..
      Then i started watching Boomer videos!! :) And that changed my game Forever!
      I made my own ORC, 3bet chart and stuff!..
      So got past the 10/20c easily... But not the 25/50c..Still struggling there..
      BR-400$ and i am Sure i would reacher much higher!

      Hey gnananandan,

      Welcome to the blogs. :)

      Really nice introduction. We do have a fairly small but select group of guys playing FLHE and they are awesome at helping each other out.

      Good luck and hope to see you crushing. :s_thumbsup:

      Have fun

      Laz

      P.S. I fixed the link so your graph will display. Nice too :s_biggrin:

      Thanks guys!
      As Ava said i also got into some Tourneys!
      I recently finished at 16th place in the micro-millions 5.5$ Tourney


      Then i tried some FL-HUSNGs and found them extremely rewarding..
      May be pure variance. But I dont care unless i am loosing!
      But really its hard to find any materials to improve that game X(
      So far 3.5$-29wins and 10 lost.
      So, trying to play 7$ games as i have the Bankroll for it.

      And yesterday i took a shot at 0.5/1$..So far not bad!

      Thank you, FFRRAANNKKIIEE
      This is the graph of july. There was a terrible Downswing of 600BB in less than 10K hands. I was not tilting even.. But anyways i survived by the rakeback and recovered!

      Left the challenge long back. But didnt quit Poker.
      Somehow even after trying to learn hard NL-HUSNG, its variance and thin edge(or may be no edge??:f_mad: ) killed my 350$(video pack, Coffeecalcs & lost buyins) @ 1.5$ & 3.5$ levels.
      So i return back to FL again for the swingy ride.

      HU Hypers


      This year FL-till now, 0.25/0.5 and 0.5/1
