      Thank's Hannes, much appreciated.
      I have just finished a session and I am up by $0.21 so far lol.
      I guess it's better than being down.
      Now it's back for some more studying.

      Well iv been up and down on the cash tables tonight, at my last count I'm $2.91 down on my starting capital :( could have been worse though, at one point I was about $15 down but managed to bring it back up.

      On the plus side I have won myself a seat into a $2500 Bankroll Booster freeroll so hopefully I can cash in that when it comes around.

      It's been a little while since my last post.

      My BR is holding steady at around $60. Had a while where I was up and down but I seem to have settled down now and I think my poker is getting better.
      I have only been playing cash so far and spend hours at the micro stakes slowly building up my stack but always seem to loose out on the big pots with players usually hitting a flush on the river, they just don't seem to fold to any size bet. I suppose this will be good in the long run but for now it can be very frustrating loosing what I spent so long building up.
      Another hand that always seems to hit the flop is AJ. I see this beat AA KK AK so many times, just never when I have it lol.

      Thinking of having a go at $1 sng's to see if I can be succesful there, maybe start with some Double up tables and see where that takes me.
