      As I decided to go a bit more serious about my poker career, I guess that the right thing to do is starting my own blog. That should get me a bit more disciplined.
      So I am playing for more than six months already, but as I had many ups and downs I was almost at the starting position (my last downswing (and lack of skill probably) returned me to 100$ bankroll)
      So I made a 300$ deposit at mansion and after arguing with the support for a week I got my 600$ bonus.
      I played NL20 SH for a while and decided that despite the fact that Im winning there I cannot clear the bonus fast
      So I started playing on NL100 SSS 9-12 tables (Im with 15" monitor on my laptop I cannot play more atm)
      I started really good - 350$ up for three days work
      next two days - total disaster
      1st day - 140$ back
      2nd day (my birthday) - 200$ back
      worst badbeats that I had in my life!!!
      so my bankroll is currently at 450$ again
      Im now at a crossroad - I can continue playing nl20 SH or try again with nl100 (if I continue with the same rate of playing I'll get platinum stats on mansion this month, which gives me 500$ more bonus
      also I have 340$ more to clear I cannot see that happening at nl20
      I dont have much time right now, but next time I login I'll post some graphs and hands
      So see you soon!

      Hey NRG Blaze

      Видях те да играеш на NL100 SSS и ти пожелавам успех. И да искаш трудно ще играеш в Mansion повече от 12 маси, тъй като няма много хубави маси.
      Ако не си сигурен в играта си аз мога да опитам да ти помогна. Напише някви статистики и можем да оправим някоя и друга грешка. Някаква графика и стандартната ти дефиация също ще са от полза.
      Мога да намеря време да направим и някоя и друга sweet сесия.

      Само не разбрах, как по дяволите играеш на 0.5/1 с $300 банка.
      Всъщност само с платиниум няма да стане, ще ти трябват още към 10к точки за месеца за да направиш 250 хиляди точки.

      Вероятно играеш ужасно много, защото с SSS за платиниум ти трябват 38-39 хиляди ръце.

      Best regards,
      kukkiwonBG

      As I promised Im keeping you updated with chart and stats
      this is my chart on NL100 only
      [img][IMG]https://img291.imageshack.us/img291/4066/chartex6.th.png[/IMG][/img]
      and these are my stats for it
      VPIP - 9,5
      PR - 7,4
      aggro - 4,4
      hands - 10140
      handrange showdown - 2,5

      to kukkiwonbg

      I dont know if these stats are enough for you to help me with my game - if you need anything else please let me know
      concerning my bankroll - I had around 550-600$ when I started playing nl100
      I made 10000 hands playing 4-5 days 5-6 hours each day
      I have to make 30000 MCPs more till the end of the month in order to reach my goal (500$ bonus) - I need just the platinum stats for it because of the promotion for January (100% points boost)
      I hope that I can make these points till the end of the month
      the only thing that can stop me is if this bad streak continues
      Im currently slowing down a bit cause Im trying Poker Tracker - had a lot of problems with Elephant, so I decided to switch my software

      Hi NRGBlaze,

      I've seen you around on NL100 on ipoker these last feew days. Even if you play break even on NL100, you will get the bonus. I would play SSS to clear a bonus if needed, as I have done in the past. Just check your BRM over though, for NL100 SSS you need alot more than you have.

      I'll keep an eye out for ya on the tables, GL,
      Stiev

      a fine day I guess. I had some bad luck leftovers from yesterday, but at the end of the day I was breakeven
      didnt have much time to play, cause I was trying to get familiar with PokerAce and Poker Tracker
      had everything fixed, but still did not get any stats at the tables (maybe its because I use mini tables)
      if somebody knows why does that happen please tell me
      so I used elephant again despite all the errors that I get (some of the players' places get switched (not something that you can fix by rotating the table places - more complicated))
      otherwise I cleared 40$ of the bonus, so my roll is at 490$
      Im calling it a day
      beware mansion players - Im coming back tomorrow! :evil:

      ok 120$ back again
      released 50$ bonus so the loss is 70$, but thats it
      IM OFFICIALLY A SSS HATER!!! :baby:
      too much variance, too many bad beats, destroyed my bankroll
      or maybe I just do not do it right (not that there is much to do wrong, but anyway...)
      so going back to nl20 sh
      good luck to everyone else!

      everything's fine now
      I returned playing nl20 SH and my bankroll is back to 430
      I'll clear the bonus slower that way but at least Im gaining money instead of losing
      I participated in a live coaching yesterday (first time in the last few months) and trying to study more theory at least for an hour each day
      so Im trying to get a bit more serious :D
