      Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

      My name is Ali and I'm a 25 years old Hungarian boy from Romania currently volunteering at the Spanish YMCA, helping kids with their English homework and organizing Summer camps. Sounds amazing? It feels like it! I consider myself an honest, creative, ambitious and fun guy.

      I came in contact with the world of online poker through my amazing friend and ex class mate kidzoltan, who is now helping me build a bankroll. Thank you for that, Zoltán sensei! I started playing poker in December '16 and it quickly became more than just a hobby (now I'm striving to play 6 days a week, 5 hours a day).

      My life at the moment:


      THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY
      :club: Playing board games: Carcassonne, Glory to Rome, Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Betrayal at House on the Hill etc. I'm also designing a board game.
      :club: Art in general and writing poetry. Kid and Champ will be the title of my poetry book that I plan to publish in 2018.
      :club: Working out. I hit the gym thrice a week and swim once-twice a week. Sorry, no pictures of this sexy animal. I train for myself, not to show off.
      :club: Striving for and achieving goals. I read a lot of personal development books and continuously attend seminars.

      POKER GOALS
      :club: Short term (30.04.17): €150 BR (I will reward myself a new board game)
      :club: Mid term (31.09.17): is to build a €1000 BR.
      :club: Long term (31.08.25): Become financially independent. Invest the money I win as a professional poker player in businesses that generate passive income.
      To stay motivated, I play in front of my #GoalWall:


      MILESTONES
      :club: 12.01.16 - Started playing Poker on PokerStars with €40 BR (€20 + €20 first deposit bonus)
      :club: 02.02.17 - €50 BR

      TOP
      :club: BR: 24.04.17: €90.8
      :club: Day: 24.04.17: +€18.9
      :club: Month: February 2017: €64.48 (+ €15.36)
      :club: Win in MTT: 24.04.17: +€27.18
      :club: Final position in MTT: 15.02.17: 1/134 (¢10 Bounty KO)
      :club: #of tables at the same time: 7

      See you at the tables! Hit me up on Instagram.

      It sounds like an interesting goal to reach a bankroll of 1k with MTT SNG's and MTT's. Maybe the Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Opt-in now! promotion is something for you to make a nice bankroll challenge against other members.

      Further I wish you all the best to reach a bankroll of at least 1k and improving your game: gl:

      Cheers,

      This great increase in my bankroll is thanks to an amazing day of €1 MTTs. Competitions are really motivating.

      Saturday I had a 12 hour long session in which I played 40 MTTs (Star Coin, ¢10, ¢50, €1, €2) and I got a tonne of bad beats. Still, my mental game is strong and I will crush it in the end!

      My amazing graphs for February.
      Only MTTs

      Every game I played


      Although I didn't reach my BR goals, all in all I am very pleased with my results in February. I was eager to play even after a session of bad beats and bad calls (my mental game is good), finding pleasure in grinding multiple tables and especially striving to reach the final table in MTTs. I definitely have to give a shout out to kidzoltan, who mentors me and constantly helps me improve myself and my game. Thanks to him, February was a productive month. Sensei,


      March, here we come!

      March will be a tense month because I want to grind 200 MTTs (€0.10, €0.50, €1, €2, €3) in 3 weeks. I want to double my BR so I must make the most out of my every session. I'm feeling optimistic about it.
