      Welcome All to my first ever blog! :megusta:

      Short introduction

      Name: nemprofi
      Site: PokerStars, rarely Bwin and 888
      Playing: MTTs only
      Limits: 0-5 usd
      Starting Bankroll: I am ready to invest in 2017 1000 usd (currently I have 260 in PokerStars and I am willing to refill if I loose it all)
      Target: 5000 usd profits in 2017
      Biggest win: 1374 usd in 2,2 turbo MTT 2. place

      Long introduction

      Hello. I am nemprofi from Budapest (Hungary). I am playing poker for almost 5 years now. In the beginning I had the intention to become a pro but after 2 years I realized I am not "pro" material. Now I am a recreational player playing once or twice per week and what I currently trying to achieve is to play rarely but well. I have full time job hence I usually able to play only in the weekends.

      For 2017 I decided to implement a few rules to my poker games:
      1. Spend more times on poker forums
      2. Implement a 200 buyins BRM rule. In pokerstars I set my buyin limits to 5 and only plan to change it when my BankRoll reaches 1200 or falls below 800.
      3. Play only up to 4 tables at the same time (used to play 6)

      I am aware that my targets may sound a bit unrealistic however I am confident that by setting the target high I will do my best to achieve high. We will see :)

      What you can expect from this blog that I will update here the happenings of my poker life on weekly basis. I also want to opt in to the 2017 challenge and reach 1500 in profits.

      Wish me GL!

      puh, 4 MTT at the same time sounds like you can concentrate enough. Buuut - what if you bust in 3, wont it be pretty boring?

      ...says the cash game player :-)

      GL also in the BR challenge!

      The first comment is full of fun :coolface: ... hopefully :D

      But I will elaborate on that part. If I bust I will register for any other available MTT within my limits and taste (I do not play KO tournaments and I prefer turbo to regular)

      Thank you for the GL wishes :) I am glad at least someone replied.

      He nemprofi - for the pictures, simply drag them into the editor and they will be uploaded for you!
      Adding pics via an URL is just an extra option.

      For the last hand: as an MTT player, the last hand 99.9% will be a loosing one...
