      Hello,
      First of all my english might be bad but i still learn

      Im Chris,Im 22 and i have played poker for 1 year and bla bla : D. I was grinding sngs and then cash game. Started with 0$ on freerolls and grinded it up to 2k$+, then cashed out some of this money for new computer.
      Currently im switching from fullring(where i reached 20nl) to shorthanded. Its different so i wanna start from 4nl and go up after winning 20 buyins.
      Current BR: 1000$ so its pretty deep on these limits

      What is this blog about? : I will control my progress in Poker and Gym.
      Why?: I will not forget what i had to do and it will help me in beating my LAZINESS mostly and develop my game cause i wasn't learning almost at all.
      Who cares?: i dont know. I do it for myself mostly, but some advices from you would be nice. Also some motivation occasionally, especially when it comes to downswing i need this xD

      Here is some old graph from my beginnings in cash game(beating 2-4nl FR)

      Long term goals:
      be the best poker player as i can, 100nl maybe
      In gym: become a fit

      Short term goals

      October
      - Find a job complete
      - Join a gym - X
      - Play at least 45000 hands X
      - 60 hrs of analyzing my game and learning X
      - 27 hrs of improving my English X


      X - in progress or not done
      complete - done


      And I dont look at results and dont paste them before at least end of the month. Thats poker. Only Longrun matters.

      sorry for a lot misspellings

      Lets go ..

      Motivation
      I will watch this everyday to keep my motivation and avoid tilt

      Experience is making mistakes and learning from them

      Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they DON'T QUIT

      No matter how well technically trained you are mental aspects of poker is a true mastery of the game.

      A lot of agro fishes



      First insights about 4nl

        People are over agressive
        They try to bluffcatch too often
        Tons of 3bet Blinds vs button
        A lot of fishes
        Regs are bad
        You can make a decent winrate by playing ABC



      And some old screen for lols

      So i skiped 4nl cause it was too easy. I Came on 10nl and had tilt of my life xD . If i'd write a poker book about beating micro stakes it would be 100 pages repeating "don't tilt"
      I had a little break from poker and i worked on my mindset a bit and im back today. I will not give up cause of one tilting session :o

      An Excuse Not to Learn

      It doesn’t take long to find a player who’s avoided working on their game because they assumed their losses were due to variance. When it seems like, “there’s no point, I’m just going to get screwed again,” or if you’re an online player obsessed with being down in all-in EV, it’s understandable why you wouldn’t put in the time. If you believe the reason you’re losing is solely due to bad luck, it’s actually illogical for you to work on your game— especially when it’s much easier to complain.


      (good game + bad variance) >>(bad game + bad variance)
