      hey there!

      may i introduce myself: random austrian donk, 22 atm. playing poker for about a year now.

      i started with BSS FR on stars, NL2 (not tracked), received the 50$ on partypoker and 888 (oh, dont forget about mansion) -> donked them away :f_confused:
      than i moved my roll to FTP (NL50 FR), i played some hands on an other ipoker site. i was shotting NL100, but decided to give SH a try. so i moved down to NL50 SH. first i was running hot, but my skill was like :f_eek: :f_o: :f_mad:
      so after a few xxk hands i lost .. well, lets say a few buy ins:

      my first year of poker, 2009:


      bb-graph:


      so i decided to move back to FR, where i - hopefully - have an edge.


      thats what my br looked like at the end of december:
      BR:
      code:
      FTP:      $   770,82   36.126,33 FTPs
      Party:    $     0         906 PP
      Stars:    $     0         522,70 FPP (77 T$)
      Everest:  $   631,69
      TAF:      $   125
      MB:       $   327,70

      roundabout 1,8-2k$
      it changed a bit, but unfortunatly not that much :(


      over the xmas holidays partypoker gave me a 200$ bonus, which - in addition to the cash mashine - gives not that bad rakeback.
      i also play on FTP to release the endyear bonus, which should be done by the middle of february (perfect :f_love: )

      so the plan for the rest of this month is the following:
      + 7 *1k hands on partypoker (~50 pp), to release 100$ bonus and 50$ promo
      + 12 ironman days on FTP, ~800-1k hands each day
      + the rest of the hands i will play on everest (NL50/NL100 mixed) and/or stars (NL25/NL50)


      the reason why i start a thread here: why not?
      i do already write a few posts on the german forum, but 2 times doubles the fun :f_pleased:
      tbh i was lazy in school. very lazy. very very ... i think u know. and for the last 2 or 3 years i havent done that much to keep the language "skill" i have (exept some chating, and listening to music :f_biggrin: ).
      so why not reading and writing a bit in english, to not forget the few things i know?



      thats all i have to say. for the moment. feel free to flame me for my mistakes, my posts, my pokerskill. gogogogo

      first update \o/

      last few days are running well. i started to mix some NL100 tables on pp to earn the required pp faster.
      i'm a bit on scared money (7 stacks arent that much :f_cool: ), but, u know: who cares.

      8 buy-ins left for NL50, i hope i can clear my end-year bonus with it oO
      i think i will cash out and try an other site. i already thought about it a few times to leave FTP, but wasnt able to find a good alternative. any suggestion with good traffic (exept stars; dont like the VIP system)? what about cake?

      on party i released the first 100$ bonus, the promo will give me another ~40-45$. curious what the new promo in february will be.
      NL100 is fine there. reduced my losses on the limit to 17-18 stacks or something like that. the time i will be break-even on NL100 i could play NL200 oO
      the problem there is table selection. not that much tables for FR, and waitinglists with 5++ people ... or just <20% players/flop.

      alright, thats how i run on FTP this month:


      yesterday my mum told me something, but i wasnt able to remember what it was about exactly. when i asked her she answered: "thats the reason why u are not able to win" - cause i cant remember the easiest things. fml

      but i released ~300$ bonus ;(

      i checked the shop already to get an idea of what i can do with my FTPs if i cash out, but havent made a decision yet. i have 44,5k FTPs (and ~700-750 iron man medals).
      an ipod would be fine, but therefore i have to grind some more (and loose some more money too obv :O ) ...


      any suggestion with good traffic (exept stars; dont like the VIP system)? what about cake?
      need information.

      Wow, that last graph looks tough. Is it only NL50FR? I've been running like you this month :) Only NL50SH on FTP.

      the graph is FTP only this month, yeah. maybe there are some NL10 hands (rush poker lol) and some NL25, but mainly NL50.
      i think FTP is rigged. thats why we run that bad. its not our skill, its FTP :f_o:

      played a few hands yesterday, ftp and pp: ~50$ up. on the last hands i got KK and got it in against a midstack with aces. otherwise i would have won ~70-80$.
      but its fine for about an hour.

      time for a month review :)

      FTP + PP + EVP:


      PP + EVP only:

      quit FTP :f_frown:

      with rakeback i'm ~1k up.
      still missing 1k from bf, hope i will get the money back ...


      BR:
      code:
      FTP:      $   516,66   46.080 FTPs
      Party:    $ 1.326,83       1.579 PP
      Stars:    $   192,65       676 FPP (66 T$)

      MB:       $   127,70

      Total: $ 3.564,66


      i hope february will be better, as i can play more on EVP and PP. theres no need to play that much on FTP, cause the endyear bonus is nearly finished.

      short update:
      2k-3,5k hands played so far this month. hopefully i can reach my target of 15k hands ...
      i'm done with ftp and going to cash out after the next rakeback.

      next time i find some good NL200 tables i will play 1 in addition to NL50/NL100.
      watched 2 cr-videos yesterday, and i'm motivated to destroy the limits :f_thumbsup:

      NL100 and NL200 so far =)


      but just be for this month. who cares, 6k hands isnt that much. i hope that i'm motivated to grind a bit on the weekend.

      did u know, that an iso-raise on NL200 is as big as a shortstackers stack on my "standard" limit? :f_eek:

      and yeah, NL200 is fun. i feel free cause i can jump the limits and play whatever i like. there is a wider range where i can search for good tables. NL50 SH? yeah, why not. NL200 FR? sure thing. i really like it :heart:


      lets see how i can perform for the rest of the month.
