      Hi there.

      Just wanted to start my cash blog, to keep my results in sight and maybe to motivate myself.

      So, yesterday i watched PS russian community video's and saw that trainer Funnd was playing some CAP poker on NL25. So i liked CAP game a lot, more aggressive play, loads of fishes. So i decided to start my cash game career on FT CAP tables.

      So maybe someone read my previous blog, but for those who didnt, i am a sng grinder, ok not grinder, but player. Played @ pacific 6max 5.5$ STT. So one day sng'os just started to bored me, and i cashed out my entire bankroll. ~350$. Had some time off poker, but kept following some blogs here aswell.

      So - the challenge.
      Climb up some limits starting just with 15$.
      Move to next limit when i have at least 25BI (one buy-in 30bb)
      And want to reach NL5 till may.

      So thats about it.

      So did play a little. Played 4 tables and it was like rollercoaster. But somehow i managed to survive my first day with all the fishes there.

      So - played 455 hands; Stats- Vpip: 25.9 ; PFR: 16.5; AF 3.3

      And my bb/100 is quite nice 33.41.

      So my bankroll stands at 16.21$


      GL all.

      Sooo, little update. Played bit more that 1000 hands on NL2 and mixed up just a little little with NL5. It did work out pretty ok. Loads of fishes moving all-in pre-flop with 27o and so on. On NL2 im running pretty nice with 38bb/100 hands. Thats nice. So in my morning session i got little heater. Got pretty cards, played well so that was fun to play.

      Got some bad beats aswell in the end of session, run KK into aces, but still all-in pre with kings is +EV.

      Here is my graph -



      And stats -



      now im going to Latvian Flooball finals, and if my favourite team will win, than it's no poker tonight!

      GL al! :)

      So havent played since last post. Had to go to Romania to get my mother back to Latvia. So my dad and i took a litle eurotrip. Because of the vulcano in Iceland, we were driving with car. It was pretty hard. Got to Romania in 24h non-stop driving, sleep 4 hours, and drove back to Latvia. Thx God that we stayed in Poland to sleep, because i was so tired and sleepy, just could not drive anymore.

      So 4 days off the poker, and today had some small session on NL2. Played 2-4 tables, like 45 minutes, not lot of hands but i ran good. Played 267 hands and i was +11BI. Thats great.

      Just a little bit more, and i will advance to NL5. I know i have no distance, but im pretty sure aswell that i crush NL2 easy.

      Here's the graph for today.


      So i think i will play a little more poker. So today I have to get +5BI more to take shots @ NL5.

      GL all,

      Hi there.

      So i have played pretty well. Beat NL2 easly, and now i am finishing NL5 as well. For now my BR stands @ 64.69, and i'm allready trying to mix up some NL10 tables aswell.

      There are no graph for now because i've been living @ my girlfriends apartment and have no HM on that computer. But i will try to work things out with it, because have been playing a lot these days.

      Hello all,

      so, havent played a lot. Shot @ NL10 failed, lost 3BI. So will be playing NL5 for a bit.

      Started playing again SNG @ stars. Deposited 100$, cleared bonus and now i'm playing 1.2$ 6-max sng's. It's so fishy, players are so bad, with stats like 76/0 and so on. For now i will try to play @ stars, because cash game bit bored me.

      @ stars BR for now is 32$.

      So here are the tasks for may:
      1) Crush 1.2$ 6max SNG's
      2) Take shots @ 3$ sng's when i have at least 20BI
      3) Read and whatch some vid's


      GL all,

      Hi there.

      From my last post played just more than 63 sng's, but still im pretty happy about my game with these fishes. It's really been like a rollercoaster up&down and all around. But still, im quite sure that my knowlegde and skill is far more than 1.2$ sng's.

      Posted some hand in forum, and thanks again for replies about my play. Sometimes i just dont give credit to opponent for having good cards, but still i can lay down kings on flop with ace.

      Read some theory while my girlfriend was shopping @ mall (i just hate to go shopping with her, because she is going into same shop for 3 or 4 times, to just look @ one sweater ;) )

      Played some 2$ MTT, just one cashed but just to triple my buyin so for mtt's im even.

      Still dont have mood to play cash, but i will not cash out from fulltilt, because, if i have mood to play some CAP game, i will do it.

      Ohh, btw yesterday was hockey time in Latvia, because world champs stared, and im a big fan of hockey. May will be quite interesting for that reason. Still latvians played poorly and lost to Swiss 1:3. Canada - you r next :D

      So overall -
      Played - 153 sng's

      BR - 52.13$

      ROI% - 17.6%

      ITM - 42.5%


      I have no idea how much will i play next week, but i will be happy to play @ least 100 sng's and for all may 450, because i will have some hard time to get my studies back @ the level i want them to be.

      Graph -

      So for now it's all, gl @ the tables, crush them! ;)

      Hi,

      Today i decided to mix up my game a bit, and today i will play some DoN's. Little bit of tired to play 6-max, wanted just play smth else. So with my BR i can play some 1.1$ turbo DoN's. @ uni played 8 tables and finished 4 times ITM. But got two bad beats. Overpair was busted by lower pocket pair, and AKs was beaten by A9o. But still was quite fun. So today will play @ least 30 tournaments. Volume is so low because tonight i have pizza night with my girlfriend and sister.

      About 6-max. Hate varience. Damn, I cannot play against 5 fishes @ the same table. Vpip is bigger than 60, PFR is 5, just, cannot beat them. Will take two days brake for 6max.

      Yesterday was hockeynight, but still latvians suck a lot. 1:6 loss to Canada. Damn, we suck @ this championship. Tomorrow will play agaist Italy, i hope we will do better.

      GL all, c ya
