      Hey Guys,

      My name is Yordan, 27 years old from Bulgaria. I am a newbie at poker blogs also being recreational player for many years now. The main reason doing this blog here, not in the Bulgarian community is, that I want to use my English every single day.

      About me:
      The last four years I used to work on a cruise ships for Carnival Cruise Lines, not anymore for many reasons. Before that lived and worked in Greece for while. Right now i'm back home trying to figure it out what should I do next. So meanwhile I have enough time to do a challenge which will be beating micro stakes at Stars in 3,4 months time.

      My goal is to become an experienced cash player and the only way to do so is crushing the micro's all the way to 50NL. I will be playing mostly zoom and mix with regular tables.

      So starting bankroll 80$ Goal 2000$

      :spade: 40 buy-ins for level
      :heart: start taking shots when I reach 10 buy-ins for the next level
      :diamond: 6 hours of play per day, 2 hours study per day (1 hour before and 1 hour after session)
      :club: updating the blog every day and posting hands with though spots

      Alright I'v already played around 30k hands on NL2 and today started on NL5 with one ugly session.

      This is graph from NL2 I have 5k hands more on my laptop with 20$ profit

      This is my first session at NL5 Zoom from today

      I had two standart spots both KK vs AA one of them guy 5bet jams 180BB pre.The other one set on set on the flop and one idiot spew with AQs where i 5bet jammed vs aggro reg.

      I'll start posting hands from tomorrow.

      Bankroll 176$


      OK guys GL at the tables :spade:

      Subbed, GL!

      Although 180bb deep KK vs AA ai pre is perhaps not std, because people will only shove KK+ for that amount pre if you ask me. But GL with your challenge! :)

      Didn't raise the turn, because I didn't wanted to get shoved on
      The way played I didn't called his shove on the river, but I don't know if that is profitable play if we always fold here.

      I think 3bet pre IP is the best play. The way played not sure if I had to raise him on the flop.

      So yeah interesting spots I will be glad to hear your opinion.

      Today didn't had time to play during the day, but in the evening i played 3 of the micro millions events. I am using my FPP's to qualify and will be doing so for all of them, cause playing MTT's is always fun :) Hope to go deep in at least few.

      GL to all of you at the tables :s_grin:

      I think folding here is not right decision. What hand are You putting him on? He should have two hearts here and one of them should be queen of hearts. So, are You sure he is playing here with Qh8h or Qh7h? From MP?

      Raise his flop bet here. You have many outs, including nut flush draw. I would play fast here.

      Will do :) I only have a question about the rakeback. Does it counts if I didn't purchased it, cause I want to collect them all at once? So far I have earned 3 of them.

      Anyway..happy to see another Bulgarian :) Need to start checking in Bulgarian community soon.

      The hand with TJs is a mistake. Some times he will have the nuts, or close to the nuts and most of the time not. And the KK I don't know why I can't find fold there :f_cool: Need to work more on spots like that. I am just curios what is your opinion on NL5 zoom mostly. What I saw so far is insane. There are enough solid players, most of the reg's are pretty bad and too loose, which is awesome :) Later on will post graph and few interesting spots and an idiot spew as usual.

      GL and Cheers :f_drink:

      I found it hard to play on 6max NL5 zoom myself. I rather switched to reg tables and was it upswing, I was lucky, or really there are more recreational players - I am playing NL10 now on regular tables.

      For me mixing them is best, you can put good volume fast, +table selection on the reg, which are really soft.

      This is my graph so far at both NL5 fast and reg for the last 3 days. Need to put more volume and will do that next 3 days. So last 3 sessions I ran pretty good managed to win almost 12BI

      Villain stats: 30/26/5.9 83% cbet, but again small sample 68 hands. I was planning to check/call flop and turn and then decide, but he bet so small on the turn and I went for the check/raise to get him of hands as Ax,second or third pair,88-KK, + I could still have the best hand.When he calls he is really strong, would have checked the river but the flush came which make sense the way i played so far. The only problem my bet is not big enough. He used his time bank and called. Which line do you think has best expectations in that spot?

      Villain is unknown. He seemed to be kind a fishy player. So we block AQ and A10,A6,AA,KJd have us crushed. So I'v decided to go with my hand,not sure if it's optimal line. Which line would you take 200bb deep?

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and nines(A A).



      Villain stats: 17/14/2.1 for 79 hands. Pre I put him on AK,AQ sometimes A9s,109s, but most of the time pairs which I dominate. So just shoved river hoping he will call with his pair. So worked out nicely.

      Thanks Teddy. Well lately I can not find the fold button in that kind of spots :f_mad: .

      Anyways quick update for the last 2 days. Happy with the volume, not happy with my game at all. Since I started playing NL5 I was trying to change my style and become more Aggro PF and Flop, because the regs are playing back at me big time. The thing is I don't feel comfortable at all been so aggro at NL5, on higher limits I guess it's ok.
      My usual stats are 29/19/4.9, 4bet Range: 2, Flop Agg 2 and will be sticking with that until I move up.

      Last 9K: really bad run + aggressive play = this peace of art


      Would be happy to hear from more experienced players, which have crushed low stakes already.

      Quick update for today. Happy with the volume and also had an awesome session.



      If all goes well I will be moving to NL10 next week.

      Few interesting hands:

      1. This one is against some Maniac. Few hands before that he played the same hand Q6o in the same spot the same way.

      3. The guy seems to be TAG for 40 hands. Flop bigger cbet. I should have folded on the turn I think. The river I don't like his bet 1/2 pot which is strange compared to my stack.

      Hi Iptkv,


      Please don't forgot each week until Wednesday to update you progress from the previous week here:
      Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Reporting thread

      missing the update more than 2 weeks will disqualify you from the BR challenge :(

      wish you a nice day and skill at the tables!

      Thanks for the reminder Teddy. Week 3 was a disaster for my bankroll. I moved to NL10 at $300, made 4 stacks and lost 14 in 15K hands. I was on tilt big time. But that was not the worst part, after clubbing few days ago I played spin n go's all night and at end i'v lost $130 :facepalm: After all I had $94 left in my account and today started from the begging again NL2 :f_frown:

      Todays graph:

      BR:

      I hope to turn the tings around and learn how to control tilt :pokerface:
