      Hey guys! My name is Viktor, 25yrs old living in Hungary and im playing on Stars, thats my first blog and im really happy that i made it! I used to play 2-5$ husngs back in 2008 to 2010 or so, but due to heavy studies at my university i couldnt put as many hours to game as i wanted, and hited quite a big downswing so i have decided to withdraw all my remaining cash and focus on studying more. Last year i have finished the studies ( im a chemist engineer ) but i dont have a full time job yet, maybe later on but my primary focus is gonna be on poker only.

      Last week i have started to play again on Stars and changed my game type to nl2 6max zoom.
      The first 2-3 weeks im gonna try to focus on playing better, improve myself and study a lot, i know its gonna be a hard work but with a lot of effort and the love of the game i know i can do it! Im using HM2 ofcourse, so thats helping me a big time.

      Graph from the first few days:



      So my current roll is: 80.94$

      My plans for this month are:
      - Mark hands which im not sure if ive played right or not and post here and in the evaluation thread, so i get a better view
      - Play atleast 3-4k hands/day or so, post results here daily
      - Post atleast 2hands from each session here, and share my thoughts about it
      - Get a roll to shot nl5

      Thats all for now! Hope you guys have a great day aswell ! :)

      Here is a badass song i love:

      Todays first session went shit, lost like 4x AA and several more coolers but its fine since later a fish donated me some dollah:f_thumbsup: :f_ugly: :f_thumbsup:

      biggest winning hand:
      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      SB shows two pairs, jacks and twos(J Q).
      CO shows a pair of twos(A 8).

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



      zero stats from both players, i think its fine to broke on the flop, we are far ahaed. There could be some sets but AJ,QQ,KK is there too.

      biggest losing hand:

      BB shows two pairs, sixes and threes(3 6).
      Hero shows a pair of aces(A A).

      BB wins with two pairs, sixes and threes(3 6).




      I should have folded the hand here but i couldnt, stats from him is fishy but dont have that much info ( 11hand 45/36/0 ). There could be sets in his range, so i think we are behind here the most of the time.

      Hand i dont know if i made good decision or not:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, T.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.04, Hero calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.08) 3, 2, A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.24) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16.

      River: ($0.56) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.54,
      Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.56.



      no information on this player, i think folding was fine at river since he was 3barreling with huge bets, maybe i should have give up on turn?

      Winnings: +$4.88 ** EV:$4.56

      Might play one more session, almost played 2k hands now but the night is not over yet!

      Hey Gheroghe! So far its "easy", trying to improve myself continously. Found a huge leak in my game which is im playing a lot marginal hands in oop, that leads losing a lot of pots. So gonna try to fix it asap. Im gonna try to shot nl5 when im getting 25buyin for that, stepping back after 5 buyin lose.
