      Hi!!!

      So, from where to start.....

      I opened blog half year ago(blog) and didn't post anytingh from begining, cause situation in my life „didn't let me“ ..... long story short, i moved to another city, and had some expenses and debts i needed to solved(part of them are still here :D )

      I played poker last 6 months,mostly 6NL, little bit 10NL, but cashing-out 99% of my winnings...


      As u can see, i don't play so much, and i'm not so pleased with my winrate.
      Reason for that is because i played almost every hand in „just-clicking“ mode and tilting very bad so, now I'm here, opening this blog, because i have time, willingness and determination to succed.

      Here is my basic plan:

      I will play 5h(2500 hands) per day(Monday-Friday ) 6 tables 6NL + 1hour session rewiev + 1hour studying(videos or books – for start i will read again Owen Gains –„Poker math that matters“ )

      Saturday is a rest day

      At Sunday's i'm planning do more studying and little bit playing(2-3h max), and later, when my bankroll will let me, i will keep Sunday's for MTT-s.





      these are my two profiles from which i played MTT's.... It's not big sample, but i was running good, and from time to time i like to play MTT...

      I will post my weekly plan on Monday(Sunday), and rewiev of the plan on Sunday,also planing to come here for advice and discussion with some hands that i will find difficult.

      This is all from me for now, i hope that u will find this thread interesting, and also hoping for good feedback and advices... ;)

      Gl to all on green tables....

      See ya ;)

      Hi guys!!

      Short update....

      My weekly goals are going mostly in schedule(missed one hour of rewiev and studying)

      Soooo....

      I'm here with few hand if some is eager to comment:

      I'm not sure if i may put hand from weaktight, but i don't now how tu put it diffrently

      hand1

      Villan is a fish 46/12 Fold to 3bet 43 Fcbet in 3bet pot 50

      my main contemlation here is will he ever donk me the river with TT-JJ,88 or 77, he donks me sets,quads, A9, maybe A6


      hand2

      reg 19/12 3bet 2.0 donk bet 45(31) fold donk bet vs raise 25(4)

      when i raise his donk do i have a room for fold with overs???


      P.S. one more question.... i realized that i have problem when i played fish (IP or OOP whatever) with draws.... so, my question is qhat is your general plan with this type of hands, do u cbet F&T what with river when is missed???

      Win rates in op looks good to me + very solid schedule; you must be on the right way!

      GL! :D

      Oh, btw my opinion on draws vs fish: if they don't fold, don't bet (but take the free cards instead). You'll win all their money by value betting you're made hands :s_biggrin:

      Hi Guys

      here's my second weekly update:

      i will play min 12500 hands :f_thumbsup:

      i will do Study+ rewievs 10h :f_thumbsup:

      i will post here min 2 hands for discussion :facepalm:


      as u can see, i managed to do prety much all of my task that are related to my game and improving my game and i'm very pleased with that and hope so that i can continue to do that....

      To be honest, second week of my project was much more easier than first,and hope so that in 3rd week i will be fully used to my daily schedule... (discipline>motivation )

      Update2


      so, i'm very unpleased with my winnrate, think so that most of the time i'm playing good poker, but some downswings, and lots of bad beats and outdrawings, esspecialy on river are killing me.... Hope so that next week will be beter, and expecting that time i'm putting in studying and rewieving will pay off.

      Next week goals:

      Play min 12500 hands

      Study + Rewiev 10h

      post here min 2 hands for discussion

      Current Bankroll: 170$

      Hi Guys....

      I didn't get to do my weekly update untill now...

      Last week i have not played almost anything, because my general plan slightly changed like i mentioned in my last post,and also, i will change my weekly goals, will study and do off the table work more, and reduce my playing time...

      1 more thing, as i mentioned, i will try to mouve up as fast as i can without cashouting, so my first stab on 10NL will be when my bankroll reach 200$

      Weekly Goals:

      10 000 hands
      12h of studying+ rewieving+ watching videos(next part of game that i'll work on is 3bet 4bet spots)
      Do every day exercises(in the morning some stretching, and later some pushups&abs)

      Bankroll:130$

      Hi guys!!!

      Not posted for a long time....
      At first, i'm not quited, and give up from neither poker or blog on PS, just dont have time for anything. I started course(programing CNC machines, prety much interesting ) and that took me a bunch of time and energy, most of my time out of the course i spending on playing, of the table work and that little time i have left i was spending with my girlfriend or my friends.

      Poker at last few weeks:
      Went trought a bad downswing, realy,realy bad....almost went crazy because of that.... but, i learn my leson from that period, and learn how to better organize my day, how to do better of the table work, and also learnd that in poker succes will not come by itself.....
      Next week i'm free of course(after that i will have 2 more weeks and than will be done with that) so i will play more, learn more....
      So my plan is to post 2 week updates from now on(even in weeks when i will be taking a course) first will be at Wednesday, and second on Sundays

      I'm planing to do until Wednesday:

      Playing for 14h
      Watch video about HUD stats (cca 1h)
      Read article about 3bet/4bet pots, and write down summary (2h)
      2h of reading Poker Mindset + Summary
      I will not look at my cashier until next update

      Current Blanace: 146$

      GL to me, and GL to all :f_drink:

      Play 11h - managed to play exactly 11h, in a minute correct- it is funny coincidence

      Read article - 2h = Read it and worked on my ranges more than 2h, maybe 3 or 4, not so sure, but more than 2h
      Poker mindset 2h - = + summary about 2h, maybe slightly less
      Don't look at Cashier -= during the session i'm never looking at cashier or HEM, but after i am finished with my daily schedule i take a look at my cashier, and main reason for that is because i'm shoting at nl10, so i need to know will i move down or not
      Wake up at 10am(it's so difficult for me :D )= as i said, Tuesday was unsuccessful


      GL :f_drink:
      pic from last 3 days


      i will not be able to play&work how much i want by the end of the week, cause i have two obligations(birthdays) so i will have easier plan until sunday:

      Plan:
      Playing 13h
      Poker mindset 1h
      Article - 5h
      Don't look at Cashier

      Bankroll: 211$
