      Hello, fellow poker players :] welcome to a new blog, hope you will like it!
      Here's my poker history: I first time discovered poker about one year ago, when a friend of mine showed me this game. I started with freerolls at b2b network and after 3 times of making 20euros and then burning it, I decided that I should get serious and make something from it. Then the same friend gave me a link to this site, I got my capital and then......... Didn't waste it!!! I've made something like 2k$ by playing everything: FL, NL, MTTs, SNGs (cashed out most of it).
      Now I decided that I should stop arround NL and start a blog, where I can brag after good and blow of the steam after bad days :f_biggrin:
      I'll interesting hands every time it occur and weekly/monthly graphes.
      I will play at FullTilt, starting with 314$ :f_biggrin: at NL10SH tables with BSS and move up to NL25 with 1k$ BR.
      So wish me luck! :]

      Edit: hope to start playing tomorrow if I'll have time to play.

      Hm, you could post your hands in the handjudge forum?

      For someone like me who doesnt play SH, and doesnt know much about it, it doesnt leave much interest in reading the blog when there's only loads and loads of hands posted :(

      Hey there,

      you could also write about how unbelievable fishy your opponents are, what are your impressions on poker related stuff, what non poker related, but still fun stuff you experienced during the day etc. :)

      Today I was running siiiiiiick bad... Opponents were ultimately lucky and the variance was killing me.... Feel very angry right now. When I'm already in minus even villains allin with one pair+ FD on the turn and hitting his out is making me mad, but when I got dealt two Kings and superfish at the table calls a 3bet, bet flop, shoves to reraise, show me QT on J95 board and catch 8 on turn it finished me... I am thinking of buying "Poker Mindset" maybe it'll help me to handle the beats.. Also I feel very unhappy, because those beats ruined my nice graph :f_cry: Still, I will post it tomorrow. Now I will go to sleep and tommorow - will be a new day, I'm planning to work out when I get up, not jumping straight onto the tables, set my mind and focus to maximum concetration and hope to recover from todays jokes.. ehh feeling so fckin right now..
      Jackalof, thanks for helping me to set a link into my blog =]
      Edit: minimazing the amount of badwords..

      Graph time! Not really happy with this...







      I won't play today anymore, becouse I'm so angry for badbeats and coolers that I can't stop thinking about them and concentrate on the game.

      Well, still a week in plus.
