      Hello PokerStrategy!

      Im Carl, 21 years old i had a blog here before which ended up as a HUSNG blog i was beginning to improve my game quite alot but withdrew my full roll, which wasnt really that big, for family stuff i had going on at the time and just never updated the blog.

      I like poker, partying with friends, video games, meeting new people. and i love driving, i only have a banged up old rover 200 but i still love driving the beast

      That was about 2 months ago since then ive played no poker at all until yesterday when i made a small deposit at FT just to donk about with have some fun and get used to playing again.

      In my last blog and previous posts i might have come accross as shy/unconfident (is that a real word?)/and not having much inspiration for life but now im all change. I didnt know what i wanted to do with my life, i still dont, but instead of doing nothing while i try to work it out i have a shit job with some good people who have brought me out of my shell and given me a new outlook on life.

      Goals:

      1. No Poker for a month or 2, ok sounds weird for a poker blog but the plan is to grind out RL for a couple of months saving up a small amount each week for a healthy starting BR while leaving me enough money to enjoy myself and life at the same time i was thinking maybe £200-£300 not sure how much this is in $$$ at the mo or even if this is a good amount to start with suggestions please.

      Also this leaves me with plenty of time to prepare for my challenges and i plan to use this time to study study and more study lots of articles, videos and books. When i do play again i want to play cash games.

      2. Find a Coach, i really want to take this seriously and start becoming a winning player, move up a few limits and make myself lots of extra spending money. Im looking for a coach to help me learn faster, help me find leaks, move through the limits, help me through the downswings and ofc make friends with someone who has been here done it and beat it.

      So im looking for coaching from someone who can not make me but help me towards crushing everything from, well probably from NL10 if i deposit £2-300 upto NL100 (one day i hope) and then who knows from there. in return the coach will recieve a certain % of profits for as long as the coaching lasts. Im really serious about taking my game far and am willing to listen learn and improve. So if anyone reads this and is interested or knows someone who might be let me know here or add me in the community area and PM me about it.

      Until i start playing thats about it for my short term goals. I do have some long term RL goals though which may or may not happen as a direct result of poker. They are:

      Long term goals

      1. Travel, sooo many places i want to see, USA or at least some of the southern states louisiana, tenessee, arizona, texas, florida.

      China, ive always wanted to see China not the main cities but rural parts my dad went for work and said it was the best place hes ever been in his life.

      Japan would be cool too

      Id like to go to some African countries too maybe even do a little volounteer work there.

      And finaly id like to see the rest of Europe places like Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Austria, i wanna go skiing in Switzerland and have pasta and pizza in italy. :f_biggrin:

      2. I want to propose to my long term GF and hopefuly have her say yes

      3. Eventually id like to have my own business ive always wanted to have my own Pub/Bar/Club with lots of live music and general good times. Id also like to run my own poker house/casino for a while but id also be interested in anything that helps people and the world, and where i can be my own boss.

      Oh and 4. i still want an old Mustang although the new ones are pretty sweet too!


      Well thanks for reading please leave feedback and ill post again if i remember some stuff i forgot in this one

      Carl :heart:

      well nearly had a good start with the rush week $50k freeroll but we all know nearly isnt good enough top 540 got paid and i was in the top 100-150 with 17k stack when i got K :spade: T :spade: in BB with 4 limpers flop was 789 all
      :spade: ended up getting it in on the flop but someone showed A3 spades and i didnt improve took me down to 4k with 100/200 blinds

      Few hands later ran into KK with my AKs and no luck. Oh well another day eh!

      Not much else to report, my car failed me today though :s_cry: the immobiliser/my key fob is screwed had to shell out to buy the override code after hours of searching.

      I need to add see rage against the machine live to my goals list too short or long term i dont care as long as i get to see them at some point.
