      Hello!

      My nickname ass you can see on Pokerstrategy.com is elrio. Up untill now i only posted on our dutch (what is Holland and BELGIUM!!!!!!!)
      So i'm from Belgium! If you could guess! :D

      Now! Why i post on the English forum now! Since my beginning on pokerstrategy. Now a year and a couple of months ago i only played NL holdem! So i played NL holdem for that year and a couple of months! And what a ride it was! I'm a verry tilty player! on some situations! My bankroll had huge swings (For me :D ).

      Now a couple of days i cashed 90% of my bankroll and first decided to have a fresh start on NL holdem SH! But after a week i transformed to the same old player who just wanted to make moves!

      Then Yesterday came! I decided to have my totally new fresh start on Fixed Limit Holdem.

      So that is also the reason i wanted to start a blog here. A blog i'm going to try to update 3-4 times a week for a start! :D

      So thats it! Have fun with my new fresh adventure Fixed limit start!

      So now u have seen my openings post! Here is my first update!
      Today was my first learning basic moves and a little bit playing day!

      Ofcourse i learned the basic FL pokerstrategy articles! The articles i learned with a huge concentration are:

      - Preflop play (SHC)
      - Flop play
      - Bankroll management (Ofcourse :D )

      Because i dont want to rush things i only learned this articles first! I know i dont know anything about turn and river play! But i've learned from my mistakes before and so dont want to rush learning and then play play play!

      I also saw the basic video from Cornholia, wish is a great vid! I saw the some basic moves in the video that helpt me to understand the articles better!

      So thats it for now!
      Have a nice Grind!

      Elrio!

      Hey elrio, nice to see we're sucking in FL players from everywhere!!!

      Tell your friends to wake up to the real game, as you have. You'll be more popular than ever, be faster than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.... :D

      A really important article to understand from an early stage is the standard heads up lines article here.

      Good luck and we'll look forward to reading your progress!

      Yea i'm really trying to get my tilt to a small amount! I think at first its going to be no tilt because i know i'm a n00b and i dont know what moves are total fish moves! That was really the problem with NL! I had an idea how NL is played correctly and all the stupid moves from the fish made me tilt!

      But thx for the good luck wish! :D

      Hi elrio;

      welcome to english community! The best PS community ever :heart:

      Nice blog so far, so keep it alive.. Anyway, don't forget to visit TerrorBlade's FL beginner coaching (sadly, it's just once per week now). It's the best you can get here in the beginning! :)

      :spade: Good luck at the tables! :spade:

      I'm sorry but You so wrong! In my knowledge the Dutch Community is the best ever!
      The English one has to proof everything to me! :D

      Today i learned the bronze chart! Yoghi gave me and others the advice that its a better one then the basic one and that we could start our adventure with this one!
      Today i played a little bit and also moved my bankroll from party -> Pokerstars!

      Pokerstars is so much better as youc an see in my last post before this one! :D

      This evening there was the HU fishleague from our dutch community i entered! I finished 2nd for like 15$ :D .
      With that result my bankroll was 126$ and because the 0.10$/0.20$ limits where so soft i would give it a try at the 0.25$/0.50$ tables! I ended the evening at 120$!

      TBH as long as you're playing FL you're in the brotherhood of the minraise mafia!! :evil:

      Looks like a nice start for you elrio - you should find you will get through the limits up to $.50/$1 without too many problems as long as you are prepared to keep working on your game through the occassional decent b/e stretch.

      And there we are again!

      Yesterday i got stuck to playing 0.25/0.50 FL full ring! And it was again another losing session!. !!!! No i dont give up after two sessions! but i think its better to play 0.10/0.20 for a while an paying my learning money there!

      Now i want you guys your opinion's about something! Yesterday i followd the dutch coaching from Makomar. There i introduced my plans to play FL Full ring untill i could beat 3$/6$!
      Makomar answerd me that its pretty difficult to play Full ring 3$/6$ because all the donkey's are playing Shorthanded and there are so much Regulars on these stakes!
      So what do you guys think is the best limit to beat first and then move to Shorthanded!

      Yes i am just started FL full ring and i dont need to think about full ring! But i need som guideline for my adventures!
      So what is the best limit to beat for you turn to FL SH??

      From my personal experience, I would say as soon as possible. I completely agree with Makomar. Fishes are at SH tables. They just love action.

      Lol, basic, basic :P

      As an advice from Yoghi, you better can learn all the Bronze articles, especially the one with actions against one opponent.
      The basic articles are too basic for the FL games nowadays.

      You have luck you are Goldmember so you can also read the rest of the good articles, beginning at silver.

      Good luck :)

      First, nice to see another FL blog around. :)

      About FR vs SH... I suggest you to stick with 0.1/0.2 FR until you've mastered the basics, and then make the switch to SH right there. SH is really, really, REALLY fishy at Stars. :D
