      Hello everyone!

      My name is Tim, I am 28 years old and I live in The Netherlands. I have been playing (online) poker for quite some years now, but I feel like I am not playing my A-game anymore. This is the main reason that I am starting a blog. I have had some before, mostly on the Dutch community, but since there aren't much people around there anymore, I decided to open a topic over here. I wanna work on my game again, and start building a bankroll on Unibet.

      Why Unibet?
      Since I am working 32 hours a week, and I am finishing my Bachelors Degree in IT I don't have time to play the massive tournaments Pokerstars offers. On Unibet, the fields are way smaller. Logically, they also take less time to finish. Next to that, there are lots of fish and people that don't really know what they are doing if it comes to poker.



      What's the plan?
      1. Bankroll - I am going to deposit 50 euro's for a start. I will be playing tournaments up to a buyin of 5 euro, 5 euro rebuy's excluded. I know this isn't proper bankrollmanagement, but if needed, I have the possibility to redeposit. This is the bankrollmanagement scheme that I will stick to:



      2. Working on my game - I want to start reading more about poker again, and start to watch some video's. For this, I need some input from you guys. Is there any free or silver content that is good to start with if it comes to video's and or articles/books? I'm not a complete noob if it comes to poker, I am able to play poker profitable, but I think my winrate could be much higher with the input of some study material. Next to that, I would like to join a hand discussion/Skype group if possible, if there is one. Let me know!



      3. Start sporting again - In the past, I have been playing soccer frequently. I am thinking about starting playing soccer again. For the meanwhile, I want to start sporting once a week, moving it up on the long term to 2/3 times a week. If you guys have any tips on this subject, all tips are welcome!



      4. Eat more healthy - The last three years I have not been eating that healthy. I think I have gained like 15 kg's. In combination with point 3, I also want to take a look at the possibilities to eat more healthy. It would be great if I can lose that 15 kg's in combination with the sporting. Ofcourse point 3 & 4 are good for you mindset if it comes to poker.



      So, that's basically it. If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask!

      3. Start sporting again
      As I already mentioned before, I want to start sporting again. I think I want to join a soccer team again, but for now I will be starting with cycling. My girlfriend lives 7 km's away, so every time I visit her from now on I will take my bike. I visit her 3-4 times a week, so that means +- 42-56 km's a week. This evening, I will go cycling with a friend of mine, on a race bike. The goal is to make 3 km. ride.

      4. Eating more healthy
      I also made a schedule for some more scructre in my eating patterns. I will stick to 6 eatingmoments a day. This is how it looks like, for now, I will leave the weekend out:

      Off to bed now, got to go to work tomorrow. Became third in The Black Hole, couldn't lay down 87s on a 3-bet 3-handed and when the flop was 754 it went in. Ofcourse the fish at the table held QQ and no help for me. Pretty confident about my game. Will watch some video's tomorrow, any tips are welcome.

      Bankroll: 173.34 euro
