      Hey Guys!



      My name is Dominik and I’m a 25 year old aspiring Poker Pro from Vienna. Actually I’m already living from my pokerwinnings but i wouldn’t call myself a pro yet because there are a lot of habits, knowledge and professional behaviour missing to call myself a real professional.

      Besides Poker I’m a competetive dancer and Austrian vice-Champion in latin formation dancing.



      I started playing Poker 2009 during my military service. I never took it serious till 2012. Since then I grinded up to NL 100. At the moment I’m grinding mostly NL50/100 SH FR and HU and I’m going to specialize on HU Cashgames now.



      Heres my Graph of this Year. I lost some hands when I got a new PC. So they are actually a bit better but still not mindblowing.

      Nice start already on the HU games Dominik :f_thumbsup:
      I would be happy to win that amount, but I’m mostly playing on the micro stakes.

      I wish you all the best to improve you’re game even more :gl:

      Cheers,

      Hey Guys!

      today I played the first day. I played around 1800 hands which is quite cool but the result where pretty poor. I dropped close to 3 BI. I was a bit overwhelmed toady because of all the new stuff: new sitets/ PT4 which made my game suffer a little. Besides the standard gameplan is not automated yet. Guess I will focus on quality during the next days till my perfomance is good enough to raise the volume.

      DAY 3:
      I’m improving steadily and getting rid of my leaks. My live evolves around poker @ the moment and that’s good :D . I want to get to NL 100 and above as fast as possible. So atm I’m sleeping 7 hours. I’m Training 3-4 times a week and the rest is dedicated to poker. No Days off.

      Finally here is the introduction Video for my Vlog :f_drink: Hurray!

      Day 4+5:

      I’m reaching the profit zone again. I was 1-Tabling yesterday and I got good results roundabout 7 Stacks up :f_thumbsup: I’m finished playing for today because I want to study some hours. I will watch some Vids, create some Quickfilters for PT4 to spot Mistakes faster & learn with Flashcards to memorizes and automate the standards.

      Day 6-8:

      I Played 2 out of 3 Days Since the last Update an every Session was a + Session. I slowly get a feeling for those standard lines :f_drink: :f_drink: I hat a dancing Workshop on the weekend which means that I trained 20 hours form Friday – Sunday. So I was not playing that much but I only have those Workshops once a month so now I’m turning into a grinding machine again :D .

      I’m also making progress with equity calcs :f_thumbsup: Preflop I’m quite good already so now I’m focusing on Turn scenarios as well. (nice coincident that the last hand was one where I know the numbers after the comma because it’s easy to remember :P )

      DAY 9+10:



      Last two days summed up where slight minus days. I’m still trying to find the balance between Volume and perfect play. On the one side I know that I make mistakes if I play more tables on the other side I don’t wanna quit very bad players

      Day 11+12

      Wednesday was official openshove day. I got several opponents who where openshoving randomly even 100bb things like T3o it cost me some nerves but it brought me good profits. On Thursday the heater continued and i profited nearly 350€ in total. Well heaters gonna heat xD
      Besides poker I want to get into the habit of creating habits again. I was quite good at this but in a kind of turbulent life period I lost track. I’m gonna start with to simple habits I already had and reestablish them. 1) Clear up 5 times a week for 12 mins. 2) Stretch every day for 5mins.
      Goal is to maintain those habits for 30 days and than add another one. Starting tomorrow!! Just kidding today is the only day so I’ll do it right away :f_thumbsup: (Done!)

      Firs Subgoal of this week is done! Did 1k hands with UhlvarEquity with Errorate below 1

      DAY 13+14+15

      Friday was a crazy Session with lots of ups and downs summed up I was breakeven. I completed my 2 Tasks again (cleaning and streching). Girlfriend was partying in a Club close to my home with friends. Came by @ 5 in the morning :f_thumbsup: nice way to finish the session :f_love: :f_love: :f_love:

      Staurday I took the day off to go to a Homeparty of a friend including Barbecue etc.:f_drink: Partied so hard that I couldn’t play on Sunday as well:f_ugly: . This pisses me off because I now played less hands than in the first week and I didn’t use the Weekend => no party anymore :sorry:

      Day 16 + 17

      Hate myself for partying on Sat. Hit stoploss on monday. So while I could avoid it in the past weeks on monday I hit it.
      I was on monkeytilt after the session because I hate it when i screw up. The real problem is not that I hit Stop loss rather than being behind schedule already.

      Good thing: I obviously hit a heater on tuesday and played over 10 hours. I managed to win about 400€ in a very swingy session vs a lot of maniacs :D :f_thumbsup: :f_thumbsup:

      Day 21-29:

      Had a bad break up with my GF after 3,5 years. Couldn’t focus so I didn’t play a lot. I’m recovered quite well now so I’m back on track and highly motivated.
