      @vonki thanks.
      @Lazza61 thanks, here is my first update. I am updating for the first 3 days 13,14,15 and calling it week 1, because it will be easier for me to update on Mondays.
      I am SN at PokerStars so I am adding 28% RB.


      Not a great start, playing bad and running bad.

      Hi SvenBe and thank you!
      I update my new blog at the Bulgarian community daily. That's why I didn't share any hands here, of course I can update here more often and share some hands as well.
      Today I played my 2nd session at NL50.

      I could probably lead this turn. Easy call on the river?

      I'm not really sure about this one. I guess he is betting AQ+ on the river and missed draws.

      I doubt he will bet a lot of his Ace hands with this size on the flop. Could raise and stack off on this flop as well. What do you guys think is the best line?

      I hate when they take the worst line and hit. Is it good to go huge on the flop, like $9 or $10?

      no worries, it is interesting to read the results in the spoiler after contemplating what they could have had. Although for the first hand we could probably say: "yeah, of course he had that" :-)

      Maybe we can have a guessing game: what do you think should be in opponents range - see if users expect the correct hand.

      Oh noez! I was seeing your profit in the report and like: yeah,this dude crushes it...
      But what happened after hand 5.500? Still, 230$ profit is better than no profit...

      CU!

      I cashed out at around hand 4000 :thinking:
      To be fair i could do much better. Last month I made 23K hands which is really bad, but I am having periods with high motivation to play poker followed by no motivation at all. Should work on my mental game if I want to move up.
