      youh, ma man, my name is Arturas, i am 18 years, still at school :D but its my last year, even though it will be my most important year, still i am going to open this blog to help me.

      i started playing poker like an year ago with my friends, for like half an year we were playing so live cash games and SNGs, i was running quite well(still running :tongue: (hope so)) but a few months ago i found about PS and the free starting cappital, i thought why not, because i was running not bad in real life, so i wasted it in a few days, but it wasnt that bad i was about 50 places from cashing in sunday 250k at party poker, i could of have waited and cashed, but i was playing poker so i busted out all in afted flop with a strght to a top pair, because he hit runner runner hull house cards, was nice to see :f_cool: so that day i wasted being tilty my last drops of bank roll.

      then i started learning a bit more, reading everything, watching videos and trying to play freerolls at pokerstars, as we all know, those arent so easy to win especialy for a fish :f_love: but i managed to get a ticket to weekly 2k and won about 2 dollars i was happy for like a day :D then thought for kind of a long time what to do with it and opened 2 cash tables nl2 bought in both a dollar(full roll :D ) now thats a nice BRM and doubled up in both, so went out of them. in a few weeks i played quite some SNGs n cash games, but i found that for me the best were 6 handed SNGs and 90 paople knockouts(because people so want to knock you out, they call even with 2-7o :D )i managed to make my roll to 20 dollars after a few swigs to even 5 dollars while being 20 and cashed out not to lose it, because i felt i was an absolute donk...i made myself an objective to cash in daily 90k freeroll and win 5,5 dollars, which i did not so long ago(even though i was so lucky getting cards).

      another thing i was doing this month was playing PSO league freerolls(at first didnt take them seriously, but now i am) for now i am at a place for 3 dollars :D but hope to get higher and would like to qualify this month for 15 dollars prize.

      at this moment my bank roll stands at 6,88$ and i would like to start paying SNGs seriously mainly i want to aim for 6 handed, but for now i will have to play 45 man SNG because of the buy in 0.25 and the 0 rake.
      a lil bit more about my poker skills(if i have any) i am not bad at the ICM i make about 96% of good decisions, but the problem i have is making them while playing sngs, mainly because sometimes i just dont have the guts or sometimes i think that ICM is way not accurate for nano stakes fishes, they call anything,so here is my thirst question, maybe there is some configuration on ICM to be more tight and then i could have a session?
      in this blog i am going to place some dirty hands, if i am able to, be, because mainly, i dont have any poker programs. so that is my second question, how can i post hands? and if you could, tell me very widely :f_grin:

      today i am goign to start my first session, first open 4 of those sngs and try to adaps to them, because i have never played them(except for play money which is nothing :D ) i am going to write about my results in the second post today, post some near objectives and further ones and ofcoarse write some more bout my hobbies n me :)

      so bbay for now and have some of these spades :spade: :spade:

      PS.sorry for my mistakes if i make them

      so my first try went very very decent i made 3,26$ out of 4 SNGs which is more than 13 BI so i am very pleased with it today, i didnt see hume mistackes in my game, but going to review in the morning.and on the 2 which i ended up shortly i was kicked by some crazy calls like i am on the sb 6BB left everybody fold i shove with 6-6 and the BB calls with his stack of 9BB with 10-7o, i was like wow, what was he hoping that i had?

      but posting some hands tommorow.

      so, bout my hobbies, mainly, i either play some cash games with ma pals or i am bouldering in the gym ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouldering ) i was just sucked into it more than 2 years ago and just dont want to go out of it :f_p: usually training, just love the competition and ofcoarse real bouldering on rock, which is just amazing, i could live by the rock if i had food :D :D

      i am going to make some goals for myself:

      NEAR TIME GOALS
      :spade: view some more sng videos
      :spade: read all of the articles one more time
      :spade: try to play atleast 8 sng a day(deffenetely would like more, but i dont think i can multitable that good and i dont have a lot of time)
      :spade: when i grind myself to 24$ would like to give a shot at the 6 handed SNG 1.2$ buy in(open 4 at once and see how it goes)
      :spade: try to reach the 15$ mark at PSO league

      FAR TIME GOALS
      :heart: reach 3$ sngs with good BRM
      :heart: try some 45 sngs at 1$ buy in
      :heart: just study a lot about poker
      :heart: leave school with good marks(thats what i need the most i think)

      BIG(and stupid) DREAMS
      make a small living out of poker so that i could live somewhere where there are rocks(boulders) because my country is as plain as the sea.. :f_frown:
      the hand of 2day 7 :club: 10 :spade:

      i just hate my bet on the river, even thought i knew i had the nuts, because the only hand that would beat me is QQ, but vilains shove with it pre, so why did i value bet so small?dont know...and what about the bet on the flop?if i checked there and vilains bet, i know im beat, so i decided to bet.

      a few suggestsions: ;)

      first of all introduce some line breaks in the introduction post - would really increase its readability...

      second, use a hand converter (e.g. here for posting hands in a better readable form...

      besides that, GL at the tables and keep the bloggin' going! :s_cool:

      Line breaks:

      See, a space. Omfg.

      Good luck with SnGs, make sure you study LOTS... grinding the micro sngs is a soul-crushing experience.. I've grinded my $50 up to $120 on the $1s and am now playing $2s on Full Tilt... it takes a pretty long time but it will go quickly if you study lots and play lots too :s_biggrin:

      yeah i know that playing lots would be nice, but i can see that when i play more than 4 tables at once, my game suffers so drastically...so for now, will be only 4 tabling, would like to play turbos, but i will have to be for now on the normals trying to study as i can n going for a session now :f_biggrin:

      hand another session of 10 SNG tried 5 tabling, maybe its wuite nice as i adapt to playing these SNGs n dont have to think to much, so as for the session, it was horrible :D just what i was waiting for(because of running good in those coinflips and while dominating) but today i lost most of the coinflips and sure the bigger side when i was dominating, so, shit happens :D

      i still managed to cash in in both sessions, but in only 1 SNG each, so ended up with a total profit of 0.58$ :D

      :spade: CURENT BR :spade:
      :heart: 1 6.94$ :heart:

      one of the nicest flips, i raise with AK :club: loose vilain shoves 10-10 i call, the flop comes 10 :club: J :club: x(non club) turn is a 10(ofcoarse :D ) and as everyone is thinking the river is a Q :club: , but it isnt its another blank :D

      and a hand that was kind of tilting(first time since i started last wednesday
      extra loose vilain raises 3BB UTG2, i shove for like 13BB in CO he call he shows 4-5 :heart: (dont even think of laughting at it, its a monster) i show 9 :spade: 9 :club: the flop comes 9-2-8 :diamond: turn A river 3 and i end up like um, um, um at least the table had a good luaght :f_cool:

      still feel confident with my game, watching again all SNG videos and learning

      ok, going to bed now, bbay, hand for today 4 :heart: 5 :heart:

      think i had my best session current BR 19.02$, nice :f_cool:

      deffenetaly could of have made muuuuuch more money in this session, but busted out on 2 tables on the table with AK vs KJ vs KJ- J on the board(would of have been the CL and allready 7 handed) and on the other one with QQ vs 88 vs JJ an 8 on the river so, still nice :)

      and the table i won was just soooo easy, as the blinds reached very high, everybody was like 8-10bb deep and only few 20bb so as i think my push/fold skills are good enough, i was just beating them, went from like 3k to winning just because they were sooo tight, thats for today, oh, and i am posting one interesting hand, just write sum thoghts about it.

      i limped because i think Q10s is an easy playable hand for me i can surelly fold top pair, so the flop comes just perfect for me, ofcoarse i bet and kind of big, many callers, but i think that they could be with wither overcards/flush draws or a bad Q,mainly vilains bet QJ+ pre at this limit or atleast raise on the flop, so i plan to c/r or c/f turn if the board comes K or A or the villain bets very big, as he bets very low, i treat my Q10 as TPTK and shove

      P.S.he had a Q7o

      i dont know if i wrote everything correctly to my thoughts :D kind of tired, going to sleep, good tables to you :spade:

      umm, odd sesson, current BR at 19,99 so only 2$ away from trying a session of 1.1$ turbo 5 table SNGs, hope they will go good.

      the odd thing about this session was that i reached the final table only in 1, but then went to top 5 and the server restart started and when it ended we were all credited some money about 1.9$ or so and the tourney was over..damn, i was 3rd in chips, not far from CL but there were 2 lowstacks, ah, could of deff ran better, well, going to bed now, hard day :f_cool:

      finally reached 22.24$ with a roi of about 40% if i counted it correctly :D but thats from only 44 SNGs which i think was veeeery fast to beat this limit 44 SNGs- ~20h which is about 0.76 $/h :D

      ok, going to try now a session of 4 1.1$ 45man turbo SNGs and hoping to cash in in at least one of them :f_biggrin: i think it is going to be different, because of being tubo, so dont know how i am going to do, ah what am i talking, just concentrate and try it :)

      :spade: try to reach the 15$ mark at PSO league dont know if i am going to complete it, sooo much variance

      Sum new goals:

      wow, i am shocked, opened those 4 tables, at first, everything was going so wrong, most people calling soo lose and ran into some monsters on correct pushes, but when you reach the final table(or the top 15) it gets to its own rail and its soo easy, just do some correct pushes and everything will be awesome :D

      had a good profit of allmost 10$ and my current BR 31.84$ lost the heads up but the opp was so lucky getting cards last hand i shove A10o and he had AQs :f_biggrin: nothing bad, i like these ones, because the first and second place doesnt have such a big difference so finished 2nd and 5th i will do another session in a short break for some rest :spade: :s_biggrin:
