      Hello PS community. Im Teo and i m from Slovenia. I just turned 18 one month ago.
      I ve been playing poker 2-3 years for fun but unfortunately not succesfully :) . So now i decide to start from the begining and sistematicaly. At first i registred at PS and get their starting capital. I decided to play FL.

      So at first i played some 0,05/0.1 to get used to the game. Than i moved to 0,1/0,2 where i stucked. I was thinking to start with blog after new year but it s better now becouse i need some support and help to fix my mistakes in the game and i m a litle bit desperate too. Now i have holidays too and that will be easier.

      So now about game.
      i m using articles from basic and bronze section about FL. So now it is around one month that i started playing and till now i played around 11k hands. I made 3k hands on 0,05/0.1 and the rest on 0,1/0,2. I dont realy understand why i can make some profit on 0,05/0.1 and why on 0,1/0,2 i m constantly break even despite so much hand played. So it s obvious that i m doing mistakes which i cant find. I will attach my graph down and you will see how swingy it is. And becouse of that i oppened this blog for posting my results and taking advices from better players.

      My goals: -to become a profitable player
      -to climb at least to level 2/4$

      I will post my shorttherm plans during blogging :)


      And now i will post my stats, my graph and everything and i hope that someone could help me with maybe analysing my stats and tell me what i m doing wrong and what should i repair in my game.

      My stats

      My graph (there are some diferences betwen number of hands played on graph and on stats. That is becouse i play during writing blog and delay betwen making Print Screen of both graph and stats)

      So that is all for now. I hope that i give enough information about my game if not tell me.

      And i m sorry for bad english. =)

      Hi and good luck at the tables!

      According to your stats you are too tight, 10/7 is called a rock. I recommend you to play according to PS starting hands charts, at first the beginners' one. When you have mastered that chart, then Bronze SHC.

      Also post a lot of hands at the hand evaluation thread, spam it with all the hands you're unsure! Read all articles you can, especially the "Standard lines against one opponent", that's very important.
