      Hello!

      I will write this blog to see my evolution in time and limits. And more
      important to receive feedback and advices from you to help me to climb
      through limits. I will appreciate if you help me with your experience.


      About Me


      I am a 20 yr old guy, from Romania.

      (about my pasion wishes and goals i will write later, i am a bit wasted right now)

      i like sports a lot. I love to read, learn many new and interesting things. I am a very practical and creative guy.


      My Poker History

      Like a year ago I received an invitation from Gabriel aka Gabinr1 to register
      on PokerStrategy.com I got the $ 50 bonuss on Titan Poker. of course I
      immediately lost it due to lack of experience. Then my brother started playing poker on FullTilt. With his permission I played on his account and got to a BR 190 and then came RUSH on FullTilt. I did the dumbest thing of my career at that time as a poker player. I missed BRM. I moved with $ 190
      and I played NL10. I was not used to play at that limit and that is why the
      more i lose the more i played to recover my losses I came to BR 0.



      I stopped playing poker.


      Then I saw a lot of sessions of Gabi playing , and also learn many
      interesting things about poker. Besides this Gabi is a very motivating person and he manage to teach me something of his knoledge. That is the reason why today i deposited $500 on Fulltilt. I am confident that with the right support and dedication i will make it to the top.


      Cheers and Good Luck!

      the most important thing u need to remember is dont chase losses. Set a 3BI stop loss and follow it strictly.
      also do sweat session with gabi o a regular basis.

      Three days so far :s_cool:

      From this moment:
      "Payment Method: Visa
      Amount on your Statement: $500.00 (USD)
      Description on Your Statement:
      FULL TILT POKER
      Deposit Amount: $500.00 (USD)
      Date and Time: 2010-07-21 12:11:19
      Status: Approved"

      I played like ... 9.3k hands.

      1st day: 3.3k hands. FR. lost $41 due to bad play and a lot of bed bets (i know i should red more strategy) :( :f_cry:

      2nd day: 3k hands. BE. this day i played SH. i released $20 from bosuss. is very interesting SH. i mean at NL10 you swim surrounded by fish players. i have seen many players going all in with button or middle pair. that's great!!! any way i need more experience to play SH like a pro so from now on i will play FR

      3rd day: 3k hand FR Rush. i released another $20 from bonus and won another $38 at the tables.

      My BR is now $538 :s_biggrin:


      From today on i wil read at least 1 strategy article and view at least 1 video. is settled! :s_cool:
