      Hi! I'm from Poland and I establish my blog here because I wanna improve my English language. I learned English in school but it was more than 10 years ago and I didn't use it too much since I graduated. So yeah, I'm almost 30 :) )

      I'll be playing NL ZOOM on PokerStars, starting from the very bottom NL2, and micro MTT from time to time.

      Money which I'll earn(if any) I'll spend for traveling across the Poland and discovering places I've never been. It's possible that I also visit some neighboring countries(like Czech Republic, Ukraine, etc.)

      Current bankroll: 76$

      Hello SmokMlekopij

      Welcome on the PokerStrategy forum :welcome:

      If you want to post pictures without help you need to be a Bronze member I’m afraid. The easiest way to get bronze is to use 1 of our free money offers on a poker room you don’t have an account yet.

      Further I wish you all the best with improving your game :gl:

      Cheers,
      SDK1987

      Thanks SDK for your reply.
      The only one promotion with free money offer is on PokerStars where I already have an account. Is there any other way to get bronze status?

      Yesterday I played 2 hours and I won few BI.

      Hello.
      I played some hands and when I had 95$ I decided to try NL5. Unfortunately I lost several BI(exactly 9) and I'm back to NL2. Next try to level up with 20BI.

      Current bankroll: 72$

      Another shot to NL5 and again 8BI lose so I decided that this is not for me and I skipped this level. So I'm playing NL10. First shots was with 80$ and right now I doubled my bankroll. I have a very nice upswing so maybe in a few day I'll have bankroll, which will be comfortable to play at those stakes or even let me to shot higher :)

      Hello.
      It was long time since my last post.
      I have to write about my trips to Masuria and to Śniezka, a peak on Polish-Czech border. But still I'm waiting to do that when I achieve bronze status.
      About that: I create an account on TigerPoker but there are only 2 deposit options, which are not suitable for me. So I have to play some freerolls. I won in one 1$ but I can't do anything with this money because the chipset tournaments and sng starts from 1.05$ and the lowest NL limit is NL10. I need to win at least one more to have an opportunity to do something.
      My another monthly goal was to play 100 tournaments. There is even worse. I haven't play any session this month, only Sunday Storm and Big11 on one Sunday. It is not easy for me to play at workdays because of my day job and at weekends because of my trips and I rather would to spend a time like this with my girlfriend. It will not be easy but maybe if I could find 3-4 days in this last seven days of October this goal will be fulfilled.
      My zoom game presents much better. I'm playing z25 now and I even manage to built a solid bankroll to this limit(27bi). When I had a half of this I even tried z50 but it wasn't work out. I played 22.5k hands in this month and it is the closest goal to achieve.

      Current bankroll: 659$

      Hi. Today I decided to shot to z50 with 15BI with intention to stop and go back to z25 if I drop to 12BI(600$). I had a little scary money at the beginning and I couldn't hit any good cards/flops so I dropped 70$ but then was better and I managed to won some hands and I was at +120$. Unfortunately I lost AA vs. two pairs 60bb recreational player and than hand where I played like a fish:
      PokerStars - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $92.25
      Hero (SB): $111.94
      BB: $85.36
      UTG: $155.55
      MP: $50.00
      CO: $50.00

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 5:diamond: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $1.25, fold, Hero calls $1.00, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($3.75, 3 players) 6:spade: 7:heart: 3:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.00, CO calls $2.00, Hero calls $2.00

      Turn: ($9.75, 3 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets $9.50, fold, Hero raises to $108.69 and is all-in, BB calls $72.61 and is all-in

      River: ($173.97, 2 players) Q:diamond:

      Hero shows 5:diamond: A:diamond: (Straight, Seven High)
      (Pre 69%, Flop 58%, Turn 3%)
      BB shows 5:heart: 8:heart: (Straight, Eight High)
      (Pre 31%, Flop 42%, Turn 97%)
      BB wins $171.97


      And again I was down to -60$ but solid game and a tone of luck lets me end a session with 120$ profit.

      Current bankroll: 859$
