      Hey guys.

      Iam very thankfull for pokerstrategy and all the guys are helping me improve my game. I am so happy that I finally win a freeroll



      I win a seat for another tournament wich I think is a satellite to 300K garanteed
      Since it cannot be refunded, i will have to play (too bad I still havent aquired points for using the mtt section)

      And at the same time I was playing this freeroll




      :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

      Micros, whats that?

      Tournaments and MTT's start with buy-in $3. I dont have enough bankroll to go in this tournaments


      50 seat frenzy is next sunday. I will try increase my volume game to reach for silver and be able to see the mtt section :P

      He's talking from NL cash micro limits probably. Maybe that's a better way to build up a roll then MTTs

      Humm, Im kinda afraid of cash game. I have a bad image of that place. When I was rookie pokerstars gave it to me $5 and I lost it all in one session :(


      But anyway, Im playing more SnG's, my profit is rising like a turtle speed, but is rising :D

      And another freeroll in the money. I would be in a better position, if I wasnt soo scared on the bubble. Next sunday I have the 50 seat frenzy and a ticket to a tourney $2,5k garanteed

      i am pretty sure the 50 seat frenzy is the $1M guarentee that u normally have to buyin for $640.

      At this time i was already playing the other tournament. After loosing this hand, i was tilting. I was going all in AQ and AK in early stage. Fortunally, worse hands called me and i increased my stack about 4x.
      Unfortunally, still no big prize



      Lol, this became my blog :P
