      Hello.

      You may remember me from the "welcome to nl50" post on downswing reports, since then I've been thinking of writing a blog to write usefull things and not just whine when things go wrong.

      What the hell is that title: I didn't want to start with "alejandrosh's career" or stuff like that, my sharkscope stats at fulltilt sucks and are very fishy , anyway, I don't play sit&go at fulltilt anymore.


      About me: My name is Alejandro I'm 18 years old living in Bogotá (colombia) I'm currently playing on nl25 using the SSS on fulltilt , I also play MTT on pokerstars, some pot limit omaha , stud hi lo, and razz.

      About the game: I joined PS for the free cash, I had some money on stars before which I made from $5 free dollars stars gave me , with a sick upswing I went to $460 just to almost lose it all eventually.

      At the moment I'm trying to plat 1.5-2k hands a day on fulltilt (16 tables) and 1 tourney at stars (the sunday 200k every week if I get in cheap), most of the time I fail and I think posting here will help me to get some discipline, improve my game and of course post some funny hands (nl25 is full of fish like me or even worse :D )

      Funny?: To start post some funny stuff, how about my stars graph? very ugly, right?



      Goals december 2008:
      - Become gold by this tuesday.
      - Play 55k hands this month
      - Not get under 1k overall (stars+full tilt)
      - Get some bonus on the ironman promotion.

      Played a minisession to qualify in the ironman challenge , losing almost 1 buyin, funny session indeed since I manage to give 2 stacks to supertaise aprentices (yes, those monkeys who buyin with 20BB push any two from Mp3 and later, resteal with any two cards and open push AT+ KJ+ 88+ from utg through mp2 )
