      Hello everybody!
      My name is Oscar and my nick in most of the pokerrooms is estatuillo. I am Spanish and I have just finished my last year in Economy Degree in the University of Madrid. (but I have to pass an Econometrics exam in September!)
      I have decided to have an English blog because I need to improve my languages (because I am searching for a job) and I think this is a good thing! Sorry for the vocabulary and grammar mistakes!
      My career in poker started 2 years ago when I gambled de 50 $ of pokerstrategy xD and then 50 $ more of a second bankroll and then I gambled it once more time after having a bankroll of 900$ but on tilt I played some SnG of 100 $ and I boosted once more time! I though I wasnt born to play poker and giving it up last november. But then on christmas I met a colleague in University called Diego that he become de 50 $ into more than 100.000 $ and he told me that with study and patience, is very easy to win money. I started with 50$ in January 29th of 2010.
      Now I have a bankroll of 2100 $ and I would try to rise it as much as I can. I made my first cash out of 130 € last week to recover the money I gambled when I was a whale xD


      I usually play SSS Short Handed in NL 100 like diego ( oo dylak oo in the rooms and in NL 1000-2000 xD ) and Sit and Goes of 9 people in 10 and 20 $ of buy in. A little of rush poker these days (only 5000 hands with good results)
      I hope that with your help I could to kill two birds with one stone (learning English and poker)
      I would upload the hands I find difficult to play and of course my results. I hope that bankroll and posts improve in quality with time! This is my only target!! I would try to post every week.

      A lot of regards for everybody,
      Oscar

      Hi everybody! or should I say Nobody? LOL
      ATENTION!! The first person to post in my BLOG will be regarded with 200 $ in fulltilt poker!! (kidding)

      Well this week has been in poker therms very bad because I played a lot and I only took +200 because of the rakeback, finishing even in tables.

      I have promised myself not to play more than one hour per day because I play too much and I am starting to become a compulsive gambler! I am getting on weiGhT a lot and I want to continue in my football team next year but if I dont start to do some sport, I will finish like Ronaldo xD

      Today I bought the Tableninja so I hope to improve my style of game although I play less time at day.

      I am going to England 3 weeks next week, to Bournemouth! I have already asked my host family if theY have wifi :f_cool: at home and the answer was yes, so July will be a month of sitand goes in my laptop before going to bed!!

      BANKROLL 3100!
      REGARDS!

      I think all the English people are less than happy with their classification in the football cup! But well done Spain. On Pokerstars, I have become Brazilian. You'll see me there if you ever have to drop down to the $3.40 turbos.

      Good luck,

      Hola oskrgy :-)
      viva espana :-) nice win last night
      I also play SSS but on FR tables. At the moment I'm trying to increase my hands/hour, and therefore learning how to multi-table more than 6-7 tables. playing on NL10,NL20 and NL30 :-)
      so i am interested on whats your hands/hour and bb/100 hands?
      How much did you have to widen your hand ranges to play SSS on SH tables?
      regards

      hELLO! first of all! i love english football and when I posted that comment it was when England beat Eslovenia!

      jpatzer, Your name is very known to me but I dont know why because I play 10 and 20 $ sNg!

      rorrlsh, the SSS in shorthanded is very profitable because few people do it, and my friend Diego adjusted the ranges with the type of villain. The advantages are that you generate a lot of more rakeback, people are fisher because they dont know how to play a SSS, and you have to think a little more agressive so when you have premium hands they are usually played.
      In addition I am in another Spanish pokerschool who explotes SSS SH but I cant say the name.
      I am playin on NL100 with 3BB/100 playing 600 hands per hour.
      regards!

      I forgot to say that there is a big disadvantage in SS SH, THE VARIANZE can be extremely big. I have been +/- 40 buyins so I alway play at least with 110 buyins of the next level and I go down when I am only with 90.
      So I will go to NL 200 when my bankroll is 4400 $

      Hello people!!
      Well this week its being pretty cool because I increased my bankroll a little more and the 4400 $ to play in NL 200 are closer and closer.
      I explained that my style is to be the most aggressive player in the table so people give me their blinds and when they raise to me because they are tired of this spanish thief ;) I sometimes have good cards and I can play them against the raisers.
      I win money with non show downs winnings of the rocks and show downs of the fishes.
      Here two examples, one is with a fish and other one with a rock. I PLAYED AGAINST HUMAN, NOT AGAINST POKER.

      ANd here is the little rock,
      $0.50/$1 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      Hero (UTG) ($20.40)
      UTG+1 ($18.50)
      CO ($79.60)
      BTN ($44.50)
      SB ($82.10)
      BB ($38.75)

      Pre-Flop: ($1.50, 6 players) Hero is UTG A:diamond: 9:diamond:
      Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $2.50, 2 folds

      Flop: 10:diamond: 6:club: A:club: ($6.50, 2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, BTN raises to $8, Hero folds

      Final Pot: $17.75

      BTN wins $17.10 (net +$6.60)

      Hero lost $5.75

      I usually play with the cards of the board and of the villain more than my own cards.


      BANKROLL 3700!!!!!!! GO GO GOOO!

      postdata: what type of posthand do you prefer to comment hands first or second one?
      regards, Oscar!

      I played today a little, first 100 hands of HU NL 50 because I dont usually play this style and I was bored waiting for my girlfriend xD
      I had pocket 99, villain raise, I reraise to 4,5 $ flop QQQ I bet 2/3 villain call TURN 5, I push all in and villain call with QJ jajaaj
      then I have just finished a session of 15 SnG in 15+1 and 25 +2 $ and I won 270 $ so it was a perfect session xD

      See u!

      YES WE DID IT!!!!


      I have had a little downswing with the worst luck of the world but I recovered myself and with the 15+1 SNG of pokerstars (although there are a lot of multitabling regularssharks) I achieved the 4000 $!!!!!!

      I have changed my ranges of push or fold to the 5 or 6 blinds because with 10 blinds people in the tables are still tight and when they call they are often with advantage

      REGARDS!

      Well done Spain! There was only one football team on the field. The rest were practising martial arts.
