      :welcome: to my blog
      LIFE CHANGER


      :heart: My name is Janis. Love competition! Playing all kind of sports, but my heart belongs to football and poker.

      :spade: Playing poker since 2010. Started playing cash games, found out i suck at them and moved to sng. Started with 9max turbo ones, didnt like one tabling, moved to 18man. Played like 200 of them, got good results but wanted more :profit:
      So, started playing 90man, was running well, few first places, some second... But now mainly focusing on 45man, and doing quite well.

      Starting BR = 25$


      :diamond: Goal: crush 1.5$ 45man sng (pending)
      :diamond: Move to 2.5$ 180man (i know its different from 45man)
      :diamond: Build bankroll, get knowledge and skills for 3.5$ 180man
      :diamond: Stay healthy and workout

      :club: After week of grind

      Current BR = 110$

      THINGS I NEED TO IMPROVE

      Early game opening ranges
      Calling ranges OOP (defending BB / SB )
      ICM

      Clear my mind before playing session. Go for a walk, run or ride a bike for at least 30 min!!!
