      Hello Guys,

      My name is Igor Pavlov.

      I'm 29 years old.

      I'm currently living in London for the last 3 years but I'm originally from Lithuania. First I came to the UK in 2010 when I joined Huddersfield University and studied for 4 years in Global Business and Logistics Management.

      I'm working as an Account Manager in one of the largest distribution centers in UK and I do have a very busy life.

      I'm married and my wife is pregnant (I'm very very happy because of that). The baby is due around 08 September. IT''S A BOY !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I'm involved with poker from around 2006 when i turned 18 years old and I registered with Party Poker as far I can remember.

      You are probably are wondering why do I give all this information on here and not on LINKEDIN or somewhere like familystories.....


      I tried before.... I really think I did try hard.... something inside me keeps saying to me Igor... don't do that.... there is no point.....


      But I'm also a person who will slow down when will feel the success.

      With age we are getting smarter and we can feel this (Well hopefully everyone does). I know my minuses and my pluses. I'm giving me LAST CHANCE seriously LAST CHANCE to succeed in POKER and to be independent from my work, crazy meetings, daily issues, managers and INSIDE COMPETITION where people do not value any more what is important or was important for us.

      I wan't to be independent person make my own decisions and if I do loose it's is only my FAULT and I will take all the responsibility!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Little bit about MY POKER CAREER:

      As i said I started around 2006.... So what it's now 12 years... But probably from this 12 years it's only 2 years of serious gaming...

      I was CASH player till 2018.... I wouldn't say I was running really bad we all had good days and bad days, but I'm 100% that i have done only around 20% of what i could do.... so I'm here to do my other 80%.

      But unfortunately or maybe not.... I'm giving all my attention to MTT. I'm not green in MTT and I do now a lot how to play it. I'm giving a goal to my self.. Till my son will see this world (AROUND 8 OF SEPTEMBER) I will give all my power and all my soul TO SUCCEED in this game and become someone that can QUIT THE JOB with the middle finger HIGH and saying something SMART in the middle of the MEETING !!!!!!!

      I will start with 200$ bankroll TODAY. My goal is to grow it to $10,000 till September. I will start with low stakes and hopefully till next month i will be in the middle stakes.

      Guys I do really hope for your support and this is crucial for my success (as i said we are getting older and we do get smarter and we know what is our pluses and weaknesses).

      I will be streaming every session, I do not know yet which days I will be gaming but I will do the schedule shortly. It will be a lot of gaming GUYS!!!!!!1


      Good luck and Happy grinding guys.

      Hey, there fellow Baltic neighbor! Greetings from Estonia! I'm 29 too :) Seems to be that you've got yourself set up quite nicely by some standards. I really like your ambition to strive for freedom though. You should really go after it hard if poker is what you really enjoy and want to do. I'm sure you will reach your goals if you work smart, are motivated and disciplined towards it. Good luck mate!

      Hello! I can recognize myself a lot in your background. I also found poker many years ago but have failed a few times for different reasons to make it out of the micros. I had a son just a week ago and it would be a dream for me to be able to be home more with my son, and play poker, instead of doing office work for someone else. I wish you all the luck, you can do this!
