      Do you want us to correct your english (for learning purposes? ) I'm no native speaker either so my English isn't perfect, but I always ask English friends to correct me because they won't do it without asking. They usually are already impressed "we" speak a foraign language and they don't :)

      1 tip ... the correct spelling of wont is "want" so with an A. It's a bit confusing because wont (won't) means "will not", so more or less the opposite.


      Very sweet results ! I hope you keep getting results like that !

      Hello Mateusz,

      Nice start to your blog and good luck in the bankroll challenge :f_thumbsup:
      Although there are a few errors in you English I can understand what you are saying :f_thumbsup:
      In the UK there is a free to use web site by the BBC called Bite Size aimed at G.C.S.E secondary school students. They cover a range of studies, and you might find the English Language section helpful.

      Have you seen The Quick Guide to Skyrocketing Your Poker and Life Productivity?

      Subbed and look forward to reading future posts from you.

      My regards

      Hi guys:)

      Signal amplifier was great move for me, now i have full strange signals:)

      Always, when i was playing NL 2 on 4 tables my winrate was about 25 and after that when i had 100$ in my bankroll i just level up on NL5.
      When i playing NL5 i was break even player, so i wonder if there is a big big difference between NL2 or NL5 we will see this soon, because i should have 100$ in Sunday:)


      If i was just break even player on NL5 what you recommend to learn, what for you was key to step up to NL10,NL 25 etc? thx for answering :)

      Corrected some errors. (I'm trying to be helpful. I'm not bullying you by pointing out errors ) .


      Today i wake up at 5 am, I made a coffee and i only poss of, because my wi-fi is crushed:D
      Wake should be "woke" because it's in the past.
      Not sure what you mean with "I only poss of"


      Not crushed exacly, i just live in my fiancee and there wi-fi just suck.
      "I live with my fiansee" if you are permanently live at the same house
      or " I stayed at my fiancee" if you (only) spent the night there

      Living IN your fiancee would be wierd or very private hahahhaha lol


      Router is to far from my laptop, so today im gonna buy some signal amplifier i hope so that help me alot:)
      It should be: router is "too" far.
      Good luck with the amplifier. That should boost the signal.


      And of course Im gonna make all my arrears in the evning :)
      arrears ? you mean earnings
      evning = evening

      For players that crush the lowest micro levels, 2NL and 5NL may seem the same but if you "barely" winning, there is a big difference. It's much harder to get value in 5NL. On 2NL there are lots of people that really don't have a clue, on 5NL almost everybody has some skills and think more.
      5NL is also a bit of a wierd in between level. 2NL is the lowest level. Beginners start at 2NL. People that want to try out cash, start at 2NL. You don't start at 5NL, why would you?
      People DO start at 10NL. They deposit $10, the minimum, and want to play it all until they go broke. So in my experience the number of fishes on 10NL is higher than at 5NL (but no where near as great as 2NL).

      For me the golden rule to move up is: if you crush your current level. Bankroll management is important but the number 1 rule is: you have to be a consistent winning player (over a large sample) before you should move up. But if you make 25BB per 100 hands at 2NL, you absolutely crush 2NL and should do great at 5NL too.


      And btw, well done on your English !

      -I leraned folds good hand when opponents raising me (of course not always, but in NL2 very offen when some raise you, thats mean "i got a strong hand"
      -i started asking myself when i bet what exacly types of hand i can beat how many hands are beating me, and how many hand I am beating
      -Selected the tables!!! I am playing now 4 tbales so i must have fish on my right site, when fish go on or is empty i change the table for another

      Hello guys!

      Yeah first day on NL5 :D

      Im sure when i was on NL2 i fell more comefortable, players were really predictable, not agressive so mauch, more fish etc

      Im also sure i need the time to adjust to player on NL5, Regullars player are most agressive than NL2, more 3 betting, but Im sure than i can beat this limit as well:)
      I cant wiat Sunday, coz in those day i check the bankroll, and i hope so i will have about 140$ and then i buy gold status and i just will be started realize my development plan!!
