      Hello, my name is Michaela. I'm coming here from Czech Pokerstrategy community.
      I was playing cash, mainly NL5 for two years.
      Here is my graph of last 6 month of play

      There were some ups and downs. Well, mostly downs :f_o:

      I play only on Pokerstars. In fact, there is no other option yet under new regulation.

      I made some horrible mistakes during chasing Silverstar at the end of every month in previous Stars reward system. I am quite happy with a new reward system because chests don't motivate me to get them so I play more freely :f_biggrin:

      Time to time I play 180 man sit & go and I really like it.
      I've already played 51 tournaments and my ROI is 83,78%. I know it is a very small sample.

      I decided to fully focus on 180 man sit&gos because I no longer feel joy of playing cash.
      My plan is to add some MTTs to my sessions in the future.

      Wish me luck and hopefully some :profit:

      That’s a good start already on the 180 mans. Hopefully you can keep it up.
      Good luck with your new MTT SNG adventure :gl:

      Cheers,

      Let's start blogging.
      I want to share with you my progress in play and in study.

      I don't study yet so I plan to have Study sessions and Playing sessions.
      I sometimes watch Matt Staples on Twitch but it's not a proper study.

      Starting bankroll: 58$

      Study session

      ICM Trainer with filter settings:
      Pokerstars 9-handed
      Random Blindlevel
      Random stack size
      2-4 players
      100% handrange

      8 fails out of 20 hands

      Bad result. I have to train tomorrow more.

      Oh, I forgot I planed to play only under 0,55$ tournaments :f_mad:
      Such a bad bankroll management.
      I also should stop multitabling, it significantly makes my play worse.
