      Hello All!

      Decided to open a Blog also on this comunity, as i have one in the Romanian one. I will do them both in the same time, with updates.
      Just moved to 888poker from Pstars to try a better approach to MTT-s. I will altough ocasionally play on Stars but it won't count for this challenge.

      My goal is tu turn 500$ + 2x55$ tickets to 10k this year and i-m ready to do it or at least i hope i am.
      I won't be playing that much because i have a job and i can't afford to lose nights without sleep so it will be short daily sessions of MTT-s. I hope something will come out of it.

      I am using PT4(just the license for medium BI-s) so i don't know if it will recognize any higher BI-s(at least track them). I will make an update once i have a confortable BR and i will be ready to move up in limits.

      Current BR: 500$ + 2x55$ tickets
      Poker Site: 888poker
      Username: dydyx

      Goal: 10.000 $ by the end of the year!


      We shall see and gl to all of you!

      Hello Roxana :f_love: :gl:

      I'm proud to be the second to reply to this potentially interesting blog :f_drink:

      PT4's Small Stakes license is up to $22 inclusively, so Monday Twins will be tracked, but the $55 MTTs won't. (I like the idea of Twins promo - it gives better and more diverse chances to win than Stars' Daily Double Jackpot, which was a total failure.) They're not enough to make start playing at 888, though :f_tongue:

      Have you thought about adding PKR.com? I adore it that it offers so many options to dress my avatar up (though I'm rather bad at it :f_biggrin: )


      :f_love: :f_love: :f_love:
      I'm tempted to make it look more like you next time when I change it... hope your boyfriend don't mind it; feel free to give me advice on how to dress it (I'd like the tattoos to be visible, though, which means that I prefer clothes with no sleeves).

      PKR MTTs are of good value despite the fact that they have small fields (more like Stars MTT SnGs, so they're very suitable for a short evening grind), except for a couple of major annoyances - rebuys and addons are raked fully :f_mad: , and the addon dialog doesn't pop over other tables, so people often miss the addon, have requested for years to make that window pop up.

      PT4 doesn't work there at all, the HM2 HUD works properly only if there's one tourney table running, buy-ins aren't written into hand histories, but that doesn't matter - the player pool is so small that notes can be taken manually on all regs and recurrent weak opponents by watching replays.

      I play jackpot SnGs, though, because I like to play with gamblers but I truly hate sitting for very long playing for big money. I don't know how you, MTT specialists, can ever cope with large tourneys - they're insanely hard psychologically.

      I don't know what the upcoming big February changes at PKR ('The New Dawn') will bring; they'll likely be good for recreational players but meh for pros. There's been a noticeable shift towards promotion of casino and sportsbook offerings, and there have been obscure 'personal point targets' sent out to inboxes of mainly recreational players (I can't complain, though, because I did get a personal December offer that was extremely awesome - a $200 casino slot bonus for raking $75 :f_drink: ).

      Gender doesn't matter when you're a strong poker player :f_thumbsup: I do wish you to succeed; I'm sorry if I offended you.

      It's indeed not uncommon of members to put up a photo of their loved one as the avatar, e.g. that's what 'mylove190207' does.

      Sorry for not updating lately.

      As Prolabs states, i am on +52$ from the begining of the quest.
      As well, i should check to update my ptracker because it is not tracking higher BI-s, meaning that it is showing i'm on ,,-''...I will deal with that as well.
      I have exchanged some points and the numbers look as follows

      Started BR: 500$
      Actual BR: 626$+ 2x55$ tickets.

      I don't have time to play that much but i will try to do so. I play as much as i can to be fit to work so, longer sessions that 6h, won't happen:f_confused:

      GL to all!

      He roxana88,

      are you still around? We have compiled our weekly report, but sadly without any numbers to crunch in from your side.
      Did you use those 55$ tickets now?

      CU,SvenBe
