Been kind of living from poker last year had some good runs in last 12months,promos(won ~2k$+ had to cash out) I see an opportunity in poker cant miss it have to take it all seriously.As a farmer i kinda have free winters so it would be nice to have semi pro career ,to earn money on my own cos theres no income for me when nature sleeps! :s_grin:

      Watched 2 bierbaers videos today from the basic category,information taken,used in practice succesfully in some spots.

      Session started decent as usual,couple cold deck spots KKvAA QQvAK lost preflop.Then it just escalated fast,so many tough spots,ridiculous spewy jams from fishies.
      Made some good bluffs,just i mean..my agression... wtf god damn it dat red line :D



      Epic hand of the day FML :D

      Hello fellow grinders half of the month have passed... 32k hands -327... cant get a session straight,only goes down,i think its a downswing even tho i make some mistakes i only made 4 or 5 bluff spews... Betting for value usually ends up in others valuetowns .Feel horrible...

      200$ only left for NL10... losing that would mean an absolute failior for my life.->NL5,2 forever i guess.
