      Hello. My name is Aleksey. I'm from Russia.
      Once a week I will write here my poker results, maybe some other aspects of my life.

      Now I want to learn beating NL 6-max. I hope my pokercoach will help me.

      P.S. This blog is for practice in English. If you see ane mistake please let me know.

      Hello Aleksey

      English isn’t my native language, but your English looks fine to me :f_thumbsup:

      I saw only 2 small issues
      pokercoach = poker coach
      ane = an

      What for limit on the 6 max tables you going to play?
      Further I wish you all the best on the short handed tables :gl:

      Cheers,
      SDK1987

      Hi, SDK1987. Thanks for showing mistakes. (ane was a misprint of any).
      About the limit: I will tell after finish taking lessons. Now I have $ 300. I don't have to pay my coach. The condition of teaching is to play at Ongame poker room (registred by his referal link): any limit untill I fill (not sure if it's right word) $100 rake.
      So If I keep my bankroll I will play Zoom 5 SH at PokerStars. Or not.
      PS. I spent almost 40 minutes to write this post. It won't be easy. As ussual

      ‘Any’ is indeed better there. 40 minutes is indeed long to make a post.
      I always use Microsoft word, before I post it here to check on grammar mistakes.
      Good luck with raking $100 :gl:

      Best regards,
      SDK1987

      Last weekend I threw mouse in the fridge. Yesterday I hated myself because I cannot find place in this *** world. Today I'm angy with Stars - they encourages fishes for their stupid play.
      I'm tired of being mad.
      From now on I'll write one positive thing I've done during the game.
      Today I ask Stars to close access to spin'n'go

      That’s unlucky that your running so bad so far on NL2 so far :f_cry:

      Maybe a good idea to check out the threads No Limit Beginners course with confidant91 and w34z3l's 6max walkthrough - (microstakes edition)
      There you can find a lot of good information you can use to beat the 6 max micro stakes.

      You can also post hands on our Hand discussions for No Limit board. There you can learn a lot of the feedback that you get of fellow forum members.

      Hopefully this helps a little bit to improve your game.

      Best regards,

      It could be 'a mistake' or 'any mistakes' but not 'an mistake' ;)

      Noticed that my mood greatly depends on results of playing.
      No good. At all.
      Seems to me, I don't want to accept the dispersion
