      Hi everyone,

      Lot has been changed over the past years i played poker. For now, i've really decided to make it real and share with you guys. I'll be brief for now just setting straight my goals.

      I'll be playing mostly BSS Full Ring Rush Poker NL5. Doing 90 minutes session with a 15-20 minutes break for each session.

      My goals for April:
      • Playing 200k hands in NL5 before moving up to NL10
      • Read (and study) all the silver articles on BSS
      • Read once again (never enough) all Psychology & Didactics articles.
      • Post at least two hands to be evaluated daily
      • Post weekly graphs and 50k mark graphs on winnings (or losses).
      • Play at least 5 MTT


      Any comments would be aprecciated.

      LOL, maybe try something you can actually pull off? :P In any case, good luck with your future endeavors.

      Not actually a impossible thing to be done, but i want to play as much as i can on NL5 before stepping up. It's not impossible playing 4 entries on rush poker.

      You think i can't pull of because of the timespan?

      edit
      Ok, i've just checked that i type-o on the key pad, it was supposed to be 200k hands. Sorry.

      200k then? OK, do you accept prop bets? Cause I got $100 that says you won't make it.

      Off to start work here at the office, manage to improve my winnings to 8,9/100BB, still slim, but at least positve.

      Read all the articles on flop, and review the psycholgy article on tilt. Still 182k hands to go.
