      It took some time for next update but here it is! I played December at ladbrokes but since i don't have HEM and elephant don't support that site i have no graph for that! :(
      Started to play at befair in middle of January. I tryed SH tables and sticked with them for rest of month. Played at NL10 SH and last 4k hands also started a bit of NL20 SH.

      Overall winnings 430$ ( including 30% rakeback and sing up bonus)
      Happy about performance cos stability, don't have big swings as in November!
      Going to post some hands soon!

      Some days are just a roller coaster, all you can do is sit tight and hold on firmly to the rail waiting for it to stop :rolleyes:

      Nice turn around, well played my friend. Keep up the good work ;)

      Hey Zemnieks11;

      nice blog!

      I have few advices to you regarding to hands you posted:

      1.) NEVER play with less than 100BB! In every hand you posted you have less or much less than that.. Always rebuy if you lose a pot, because you're missing A LOT of value but not being able to extract some more BB from your opponents...

      2.) Never post blind if not in SB/BB! Although it may be an option in FR game, it's always waste of money doing it in SH.

      3.) Always raise AKs vs. such maniac (2nd hand on 22/02). You should be glad to get allin preflop vs him :)

      4.) Don't open limp (5:diamond: 4:diamond: hand). MP1 posted blind so he has random hand... Either raise to get more dead money or fold your hand.

      You'd get much more money if you played those hands with full stack... Do so and you'll be even bigger winner! :)

      Good luck at the tables!

      Hey opal99,

      I was just taking a look here and there when I saw this. As I'm currently learning BSS I wanted to ask you if that what your wrote about not open-limping is about FR or SH games. Because I often do it in FR on the lower limits. Do you think thats a mistake?

      hi boyadzhiev;

      It's about SH - I've never played NL FR seriously so I'm not the one you should ask probably. ;) But according to what I know, open-limping is used in FR games with certain hands (e.g. small pocket pairs in mid position), but is not necessary.

      You may find better answer in NL strategy forum.

      1.Wheel i used to play with 100bb but always when i have 50bb i play better, other player so often push agenst me with their top pair mid pair just because i have only 50bb not full stack..thats why i often get action from fishes and guys who just can't fold weak A when A hits! Its my own strategy that works for me very well!
      3.I could push..i agree but call isn't the worst move there since i am tight player!
      4. i try to sometimes see cheap flop cos i don't feel good about raising 54 much since i am multiabling up to 9 tables...agressive with monsters, cheap flop with 22-99 and suited connectors , but from button i raise all above!
      I will try to play with 100bb if i will not feel it i will return to 50bb just how i did before..but i will try! :)
