      Hi all! My name is Alexandr, I'm 25 and I'm leaving in Russia. With poker I meet 4-5 years ago and earlier thought, that it will be very nice hobby and main job at one time, but in a soon I'm understood, that it is not the case. Because I made break in this game about one year. However, I have like this game and it's the moment (the last month) playing $1+0.10 turbo RUSH MTT (90-150 people) on FTP with 3 table in the row. In the august I'm already played about 110 tournaments, but I'm understand, that it is not enough.

      Now poker for me - it is hobby.

      In the near future, I'm planning increase number playing table as four and further I will find similar tournaments on the other poker sits, because on FTP now playing not enough players. May be I will be try play Big MTT Rush tournaments.

      May be anybody know poker sites with similar structure tournaments, that I'm playing?

      Regardless of the fact that I'm playing only three table in a row, it is very much mistakes in the every session. For example, in this hand I could take very more chips, if made bet 1/2 - 1 Pot size at the rate on the turn. I'm thinking, that even one opponent had call with nice flush-dro (King or Ace spades)

      CO have PFR 8% on 1K hands and Steal 31% on 500 hands;

      Full Tilt, $1 Buy-in (150/300 blinds, 25 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, Rush, 8 Players

      SB: 5,070 (16.9 bb)
      BB: 10,695 (35.7 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): 7,866 (26.2 bb)
      MP1: 20,401 (68 bb)

      CO: 3,463 (11.5 bb)
      BTN: 9,334 (31.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K A
      Hero raises to 700, 3 folds, CO raises to 3,438 and is all-in, 2 folds, BB calls 3,138, Hero calls 2,738

      Flop: (10,664) 6 2 2 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      10,664 pot
      Final Board: 6 2 2 5 8
      BB showed Q Q and won 10,664 (7,201 net)
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-3,463 net)
      CO showed 9 9 and lost (-3,463 net)



      It is really difficult hand for me and now I'm doubt in the playing motion this hand. One the one hand, big pot, my stack and statistic player on BB (but 30 hands - very small selection and rely on this numbers not exactly right) give me nice situation for call, but in the over hand, only in 1 from 3 flops I been had top pair, and 2 from 3 flops I been had nothing and, most likely, loose this hand.

      I had a time for thinking about this hand and made conclusion,that fold - it is right in this situation, because 30 hands - small selection and BB could limp AA or KK in this hand. Against this hand I have no chance for win and leaved tournament without prizes on bubble, if I saw A or K on board. Only fold!

      Hi 4empion,

      I noticed you posted your last post twice, so I put the other one away.

      Is this supposed to be a blog, by any chance? If it is, just let me know, and I'll move it for you.

      My proceedings is not good in the beginning of this months. In the end August I had think, that found the key to the play on low limits Turbo Rush tournaments on FTP with small distance, but the last twenty tournaments had give to understand me, that this is not the case. Truth, I had fall into the TILT - and this was the big mistake, which, probably, cost me a lot of money. But I will not gather surrender and, because I have still some times and (grand) wish continue my way and still not bad results - I will be play some tournaments yet.
      And now, my results during the August and failed beginning September:

      Graph

      I'm feeling better now. I have been getting fix up in the job and now I working into the security organization. My pay is 375$ for 180 hour: it is about 2,1$/hour. No more, but this place have one big advantage. It is graph of the job. I have 2 free day and could do, that I want. And I know, what I want - it is the money, which could content my basic live's demand, for the begin, and could content me keep my family in the next future (I'm hope on it)
