      Hey!

      I'm andeevansTV and I'm looking to start a blog of my poker antics . I've been playing live poker for about 5 years now and not doing too good. I play mostly live MTT's but I'm not getting the results I desire. Most of the time it feels like I'm getting it in good and forever getting crushed by fish!

      Anyway, enough about me!

      come at me?

      Hello andeevansTV

      Welcome on the PokerStrategy forum :welcome:

      Maybe it’s good that you check out our MTT Beginner Coaching: Discussion and feedback thread
      There you can find all information you need for a beginner to start with tournaments.
      Don’t forget that the swings in MTT’s is high as well. You can easy lose 200 buy-inns as winning tournament player. So appropriate bankroll management (BRM) is imported if you grind this type of games.

      It looks like your still a basic member and then you can use 1 or more of our free money offers on poker rooms you don’t have an account yet.

      Further I wish you a pleasant stay on our forum and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them.

      Best regards,
      SDK1987

      Hey SDK1987

      Thanks for the reply! :f_drink:

      I understand the variance in MTT's is huge, just wish I could get my break through. I believe anyone who makes it within the poker scene gets there lucky break in a big event somewhere. If you look on hendonmob at all the pro's most of them have all cashed in a big tournament that's then started there career off, I could be wrong though.

      In regards to bankroll I only gamble what I can afford anyway :f_biggrin:

      Thanks for mentioning the free money offer, but unfortunately I'm not a fan of online poker to much.

      Hey Monkey! thanks for replying.

      I'm from the West Midlands, Telford and Wrekin to be exact. There used to be a good poker scene here a few years back but it died with all the casino's guaranteeing all there tournaments. The games that are available just don't seem worth it. I will add myself to that members map shortly, thanks for the heads up on that. My live poker days started in little games in the pub with ~10 players then it progressed to a private game that was pulling in 40-50 players 3x a week, then I moved onto casino's.. just the weekly standard games, was losing a lot so took a break. Now I'm back, but this time round I'm going to stick to tours and 2+ days events. Starting with the APAT WCOAP 2016 main event for £100+£10/$145+$15
      I'm also looking at the mini GPS in stoke in May ANDDDD me and a mate are planning a long overdue weekend to Madrid in July for the SuperStack tournament at The Casino Gran Madrid.

      Yeah, EPT is like the creme dela creme of European poker but man you need some serious money for that... one day though! :f_biggrin:

      I will be on here alot asking for advice in the future on discussing tricky spots that you can 100% expect ha ha
      Also my username andeevansTV (the clue is in the name)
      I'll be vlogging some of my poker and travels, once that is all set up and ready to go I will drop a few links on the forum.

      Actually, can one of you two or maybe another mod, explain to me what benefits I will get by ''buying a status'' ?

      Hello andeevansTV,

      The benefit of buying status is access to higher level material from our videos to strategy articles. When you look though your see that some are only available for gold, platinum and diamond status. Most of our members get status upgrades as they spend money on the affiliated rooms. Higher status also allows you to send friend requests and post pictures.
      It might be worth trying a free Money offer and test our material before considering buying a status. There is a lot of theoretical material which will help you in your live games which you might find interesting.
      You can find more information on status and points here
      If you are looking to qualify for live events, many rooms have satellites for major games too worth considering and another way to achieve a status upgrade.

      I would also recommend placing your blog in the international meeting place as most our live players blog there.
      Have you looked though the Live Poker Strategy tutorial section yet?

      I look forward to reading your blog / vlog especially how you get on in APAT WCOAP.
      If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
      Good luck at the tables.

      Regards

      Matt
