x About me
My name is Rus Adrian Raul but my friends reffer to me as Mace (its not what you think, its actually the shortcut from Macelar=Butcher, long Age Of Empires 2 history)
I'm a 19 years old student from Bistrita (~120k people) in the North-West of Romania.
Hobbies : - I like and do sports (football, tennis, swimming, and hitting the gym, pretty often too), I'm a bit of a music addict (Music + Poker = Love) , Muvies (mostly comedies). So I'm a pretty happy guy. I'm very very rarely sad or nervous (gotta thank poker too ).
In the future, besides poker I would like to start my own bussiness, because I'm the type of guy that is pretty much against the state, especially the dumb romanian one (I'm not that patriotic either). I don't think I could be very much able to work for somebody and take orders.
x My poker story
Here goes, I found poker about 3 years ago. Started playing for fun (I had no idea what a straight was). I instantly liked it though. After about a year or so I watched a lot of WSOP, HSP and other poker shows. And then I started playing freerolls. There was something I could not believe at first, how I never lasted more than 15 minutes in a tournament.
Thats when I started reading "Harrington on hold'em 1" . Finished reading it and was lucky enough to receive 25$ from a friend of mine. From the first moment I played poker, I was aware of bankroll management. Used an aggresive one though and managed to get to 400$ on Carbon Poker.
Kept playing on Carbon Poker till last summer (with small adventures on PaddyPower , Full TilT and others) but never had discipline, since I was in high-school and I didn't take poker that serious. I ended up withdrawing a total of a bit over 2000$ on carbon. (Search LuckyAdyshorr on sharkscope on Carbon for MTT and SNG results)
I must say I never deposited my own money. Ever. And I think I will never do.
So, last summer, after I have stopped playing for about 3 months or so , I got back in the bussiness by playing freerolls. After a cruise amongst many sites , withdrawing, depositing, playing depositors tournaments, moving money from here to there, I managed to get somewhere around 1400$.
Withdrawed some, deposited 1000$ on PokerStars (where I'm tracked by PokerStrategy), and 35euros on NoiQ through another site which will give me PT3 for free if I make 250 VIP points till 27 july.
x My plans
I'm going to play Turbo SnG's on Pokerstars and cash on NoiQ (cash more for fun and avoiding routine, I'm going to focus on SnGs, I want to master them)
I'm going to try and release the PT3 on noiQ. Then I'm gonna start grinding the 3.40$ 10 men Turbo's on Stars (9-12 tables). While grinding I will study really hard with video's , hand samples, articles and any other possible thing thats gonna teach me how to beat these SnG's.
On noiQ, I'm grinding the 4NL SH.
Current NoIQ Bankroll : 119eur (95 VIP)
Current Stars Bankroll : 1051$ (650 FPP) ~ Managed to clear the 50$ first deposit bonus with 1$ profit
x My goals (no money goals!)
x Short term goals
-make 250 VIP's till 27 July - DONE
-withdraw money from NoiQ after completing the promotion and move to DevilFish with rb. - DONE
-start grinding the SnG's on stars and beat the 3.40$ ones till December
-move to the 6.50$'s on 1st of January and pursue the Supernova
-study study study
-play some tournaments and have profit by doing it
x Long term goals
- reach Supernova by the end of 2010 on Stars
- Black Member in 3 years on Strategy
I will be back with weekly goals that i MUST fulfill. For the beginning I will only keep you up by posting what I did (no graphs till I get PT3). I hope I'll have time to do the required VIP's since I just ended the exams and got into college. Pretty much partying going on.
When I'll start playing the SnG's, I'll play 3-4h/day, mostly as a part time job. May I have the best of luck (I have to say I'm in general a pretty unlucky player, never been the lucker type). I don't tilt easily and when I do I get out and take a walk or watch a comedy (mostly "Friends" , I'm watching it for the second time, laughing as louder as the first time).
