      Introduction

      So one day(the 28th August 2017), I decided to check my Neteller account and I saw some money in it yay ! I then realised that my country was not eligible for the Net+ cards anymore ohh noo! So i had 25$ and the fees to remove them was 12.5$ soo decided it was better to lose it in poker haha

      I started with Zoom poker , i sucked at it. I applied for spin legends , I was honest and told them that I was a complete newb so of course - spoiler alert- i was not taken. Then i tried different things, but fortunately because of my application for SpinLegends reminded me that I had a HM3 software.

      In the end I decided to start to NL2 as i remembered once i was able to be positive in this level.

      Poker bible
      Bankroll

        I will play an agressive brm until i reach NL10
        Playing on 888poker and Pokerstars
        I will not play higher level without at least 30 BI of the previous level.

      Game

        No limit poker - NL2 for now
        Zoom ban
        Maybe some sit and go

      Rules

        9 table max x 6 on 888poker - 45min max
        9 table max x 9 on Pokerstars - 30 min max
        Exit program if i lose focus, get bored, feel scare or start to think about food
        Take a pause of 15min or more after winning 2BI.

      Tilt management

        2 BI lost = Exit program
        Bad beat = Rest for 15 min

      Learning

        Post some hands in hand review forum

      Soo i decided to change my game a bit.

      I will play 12 table 6 on stars and 6 on 888poker.

      Why? I am not focused when I am playing 6 table , i get bored easily and start to watch a movie or read something.

      With 12 table I play tighter and is more focused hope this will pay.:f_thumbsup:

      I was able to withdraw my $400 bingo money :f_love: But dunno what to do with this I played 50$ bingo and have 350$ left I could invest in poker to go to the next level but dunno if it is good to skip a level.

      Today's Result



      One of my best game , the difference from the other days was that I did not refresh my graph every 10 hands xD which make me played my A game most of the time with little mistake. Was a good session , I need to make it an habit not to check my win/loss every minute as it put pressure on me when I lose and I play less tight when I win.

      I was aiming for 1k hand in 1 hour but after losing the hand below I started to get tired so decided to quit before starting making errors.

      Playing condition :

      6 table on 888poker
      8 table on pokerstar which got reduced to 6 table as the table became tight < 16VP.
      Some music haha

      Worse hand :

      MP3: $2.82 (141 bb)
      CO: $2.49 (124.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.91 (95.5 bb)

      So no graph for today =D

      Sorry guys but am being lazy.

      I tried to play 16 table short-handed today and it was crazy , got a 6$ loss.

      Then in session 12 i reduced my table to 12 got back to 4$ profit ^^

      For sh I might stick to 10 tables as too much action.

      Quite wild 3bet with that K9s COvsMP :f_rolleyes:
      And I think you should still bet the turn. There are weaker Kx and draws that can call. We don't want to see a fourth club, and that lets you check back the river more often.
      But quite nasty hands indeed :f_mad:

      How is poker going atm? Still playing NL5? :)
