      Hey guys,

      First just a quick intro. I've been a PokerStrategist for about a year now, planning to go pretty much full time into poker after October 2009 (once i submit my freaking M.Sc. Thesis). Some of you might also have noticed that i write some news for PokerStrategy.com as well.

      Hopefully you guys will find the video blog somewhat interesting. There is no audio at the moment but i will try to add that in the later videos. For now, play your favourite rock music while watching, it will make it seem "hopefully" more exciting! :f_cool:

      My target is to get at least $20k by this time next year to fund my planned backpacking trip around Asia with my girl.

      I will use the first post to update my BR, where i'm playing, and also post links to all the videos.

      8/31/2009 First Video

      http://www.vimeo.com/album/122830/video/6355805

      This video is coming on the back of a $400 downswing. I'm so frustrated, i know i'm making some bad moves (when i get sucked out a few times) but i still think that most of my play is good.

      First thing i need to do is stop being so affected by the results, but its really hard to do that when for the past 5000 hands nothing seems to work.

      The stats are im[possible to read, but you can have a rough idea looking at the colours. They are arranged as - Number of hands/VPIP/PFR/AF/Steal%. The colours from high to low are Green/Yellow/Red

      Here are some notes for the video, if you are too lazy to watch the whole thing.

      00:30 - BL AQ Raise BB
      02:50 - TR Fold 78s, limp?
      04:30 - BR family pot 69o BU, limp?
      04:50 - BL 2 Limpers ATo MP3, steal?
      05:10 - TR TT UTG+1 raise
      08:00 - BL Q7o Freeplay, call turn?
      09:00 - BL KK BU, All-in
      09:10 - TR TT BB, Fold to loose UTG+1 Raiser, Re-raise?
      11:00 - BR AKo All-in with 4 limpers
      11:50 - TR KK MP3 Raise
      12:30 - BR AQo MP3 Raise
      12:45 - TR 44 SB Resteal
      16:05 - TR A7o BU, Steal?
      16:35 - TR AQs CO, Raise, fold to donk on missed flop
      16:50 - BR 55 BU 3-bet loose raiser
      17:00 - BL TJo, bet flop to take down freeplay top pair, call river?
      17:45 - KQo MP3 fold
      19:00 - TR JJ Raise/Fold
      22:30 - BL TT Reraise all in to CO Raise
      23:40 - BL A7o Attempt to steal, made a bad bad bad bad river call

      The only two really interesting spots for me are at 19:00 and 23:40.

      I folded JJ at 19:00 to the 3-bet because the guy has low PFR. He pretty much insta-re-raised me.

      At 23:40, i called the river because i though he was just bluffing me off after i checked the turn. But i should have folded because the bet size was just too big. :s_evil:
