      Hey i'm starting this blog to join the Get Rich or Die Trying challenge and track my progress. Until the end of Summer i will have plenty of free time so that i will be able to play a lot and write. I used to play live 1-2 beating it at a nice clip but the local games dried up, i moved to online poker , but so far the results have not been good. I beat 2nl zoom for around 5 bb/100 5nl i am breakeven and at 10nl i am a loser over a big sample.
      It seems that my problem is my really bad red line and i am trying to fix that.
      So good luck to me!

      I have already played 2 sessions earlier in the afternoon , but i wont post results about them i will write about them next Monday. Instead i will post the sample i played last week and hopefully start a discussion about it.

      As i see it it looks like i am leaking money in the Small Blind and that my Button winrate is kinda small.
      I played really tight with almost no 3betting because i focused on improving my WWSF thinking that it will have a big effect on my red line, it used to be around 44% now it is around 48.5% but i havent seen any improvement.

      ATM i am working at Ranges in general , and more specific RFI, CC ,3betting ,and flatting 3bets. Because all this time i used to play by feel and i was not having any ranges. Now i have wrote them down in a notepad and i consult them while i am playing.

      *BTW i tried posting the actual pictures but it looks like i only posted the links to them, how do i fix that?
      **I forgot to say ,i will be starting at 2nl and see how it goes from there, i wont follow any strict bankroll management,if i feel that i have improved i will take some shots at higher stakes.

      The whole week was full of bad runouts. However i am still working on my game it seems to me that i have a really low Wtsd , it is around 21% I am trying to find spots where i can call more.
