      Hi there! :f_drink:

      Im Mike, 32s (see what i did there :f_wink: ?) old and come from Munich, Germany.

      Ive been hooked by the game ever since i played at an intro table in a casino in Macao.
      A guy saw my chip stack n gave me a shot at the tables. Unfortunately, i wasnt quite ready yet and had to work as a fifty-shades-of-grey slave....nah just kiddin...:f_tongue: well he knew it was a gamble.
      I started out grindin my way up from free $ 0.10 SnGs that PKR had at that time. Sadly, i had a bad run and tilted which cost me my roll but won me important skills.
      This is a new run on 888 that started with an $ 8 No-Deposit Bonus. The $ 1/3 games went well but my shot at the $ 5 games wasnt successful.

      Ill post some interesting hands which we may discuss.
      Im looking forward to some interesting talks :f_smile:

      • Bankroll: $ 101.51 (started with 8 $ Sign up Bonus 888)
      • Goal: $ 1000
      • Game: $ 1/3 SnGs (ST/MT)


      If u guys can help me out with advanced strategies for those games, id really appreciate it :f_thumbsup:
