      Hi everyone, i'm new in here but i play poker for some few years. I never took it really serious, so was an eternal BE (the unique stake that i beat was NL5 in PS for 5bb/100 @ 100kh).

      I always play SLAG, just because i loved to try to beat the regs. This works for me in FR NL5, but in NL10 and NL25 ending as a BE. I going to post my old graphs if i found them, there was pretty curious and funny i think.

      I always love to play HU games, SnG or cash, just love it. I starting to watch the action at NL50 Zoom HU tables in Stars, and realize that the level wasn't so good, so i decided to study a little about the subject and give it a shot...
      I lost $400 in 2k hands lol. Ran extremedly bad (EV was -$120), but anyways, i just don't have the skills or knowledge to do that shot.

      Anyways, now i know that i'm a novice in here, so i proposed to myself to beat all the micro levels playing 6max.

      Here is my graph so far in PS (first 50kh @ NL2, rest NL5)



      Have some mental weakness to fix yet, that explains the downswing at the end (wasn't just bad run).

      So, i going to try to fix all that i need to establish myself as a reg in NL10 and keep studying.
      Now i starting to play in PartyPoker, so lets see what happens :f_drink:

      My bankroll challenge: $300 to $1500 (reach NL25)

      About me
      I'm a 22 years old guy from Argentina, i'm studying electronic engineering so haven't much free time to play or study poker, but i do my best haha.
      I play tenis once a week with my best friend and go to the gym 3-4 times a week too.
      I love dogs and good people, make this world a little better i think. I also love beer... for the same reason :f_biggrin:

      Nothing else! I'm going to try to put some weekly reports in here, to keep me motivated and to show you my results.

      See ya on the tables dudes! :f_drink: :f_drink:

      Hi Mompacha,

      Good start to your blog and nice graph :f_drink: Looking forward to reading future posts :f_thumbsup:


      I have corrected your image link for you. Did you know that you can drag and drop a image into your blog entry instead of using a link.

      Good luck at the tables and in your challenge.

      Regards

      Matt
