      Hi everyone, I'm going to tell you a little about myself my name is Martynas from small country called Lithuania. I'm 19 years old, currently studying to be business administrator. Sadly I'm still looking for my passion in life. Poker is the closest thing I found so far and I'm really happy about that.
      I started playing poker poker back in 2011. As most of all started from a free bankroll, busted, played freerolls every now and then. I actually found out about poker through this site, so since day one I was reading articles, watching videos about poker. Basically I learned everything I know about poker thanks to pokerstrategy. So what could be better place to write my road towards my goals and get/share motivation with pokerstrategy members!
      I'm currently playing out of bankroll that I made absolute by pure luck. This is the story: I won 3$ for sports bet at 888poker fortune wheel. I betted those 3 bucks on football match expecting nothing, my team won and I was left with 5$ that I could play a little bit of poker. I decided play HU SNG's and move up as higher as I can if I win. Started from 3$ SNG moved up to 25$ and won that one. So I build a nice bankroll to play some MTT's for absolutely free!

      These are my current/finished goals:
      * - Finnished * - In progress

      * Play 100 MTT's with good bankroll managment.
      * Reach 1000$ bankroll.

      First challenge is done! I know that playing 100 tournaments with good bankroll management is not a big deal, but it's good way to start I think. :) Pokertracker sometimes doesn't show some of tournaments that I played on 888poker, so this graph is not really correct. Have any one had this problem with PT4?

      Current bankroll: 373.12$ + 12$ tournament ticket.

      This is a hand I played yesterday:
      888 Poker - $3.60+$0.40|400/800 Ante 100 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: 63.63 BB (VPIP: 36.36, PFR: 36.36, 3Bet Preflop: 12.50, Hands: 22)
      UTG+1: 27.77 BB (VPIP: 8.82, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 34)
      MP: 14.5 BB (VPIP: 16.36, PFR: 3.67, 3Bet Preflop: 2.50, Hands: 111)
      MP+1: 94.25 BB (VPIP: 23.53, PFR: 8.82, 3Bet Preflop: 21.43, Hands: 34)
      MP+2: 6.71 BB (VPIP: 24.24, PFR: 21.88, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 36)
      CO: 25.85 BB (VPIP: 25.71, PFR: 11.76, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 35)
      BTN: 10.25 BB (VPIP: 11.11, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 18)
      Hero (SB): 28.29 BB
      BB: 16.01 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)

      9 players post ante of 0.13 BB, Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2.63 BB) Hero has A:spade: K:diamond:

      fold, UTG+1 calls 1 BB, fold, MP+1 calls 1 BB, fold, CO raises to 25.73 BB, fold, Hero ?

      Is this a profitable call, or should I fold? I haven't seen that op do something like this, he didn't looked like a maniac, I would put him on TT+ AJ+ in this kind of spot. In my opinion he has something strong, but doesn't really want to play on the flop?

      Nice that you have started this MTT challenge.

      I would always stack off against a 25bb shove without any reads on him, because it’s likely he would raise hands like QQ+ and shoving weaker hands like mid pocket pairs and Ax hands.

      Further I wish you all the best to reach a 1k bankroll with playing tournaments :gl:

      Cheers,
