      Hi guys,

      well after sime time of playing poker online, decided to make a blog :) First of all my name is Egidijus (shorter Edd), i live in Lithuania, studing. Won't talk much about personal life, i guess it's similar to everybody (girls, cars, etc... ).

      Now about poker, i was playing poker for few years, some live tourneys. There was many things, upswings, downswings, tilts :s_evil: . Biggest wins i guess was few bounty tourney that i won and cash out (11$x1;22$x2 tourneys) and few live tourneys. But anyhow curretly playing NL10 limit poker with a great mindset witch i'm trying to control most of the time, but it's getting better. Current BRM is 236$. And slowly going up :f_biggrin: .

      Wanted goals:

      -short
      [X] Reach 300$ BRM. :f_love:
      [] Post intresting hands for evolution.
      [] 2hours/day study poker (videos, articles, hands evolution reviews) weekly
      [X] Reach Gold status at PS :heart:

      -long
      [] Reach NL25
      [] Reach 500$ for NL25.

      -never ending
      [] improve poker skills :f_cool:


      Some progress here:

      Installed HEM few days ago so, here is today's graph:

      All hands graph:


      Somehow my non-showdown line is below +, hopefully i'll fix it later, need to read more articless about post flop play with semi bluffing, cus ussually i don't bluff, only if have some reads about player.

      Going up :f_love:

      And here is one funny hand that i had today, check it out:
      QQ vs. 43 all in

      Well that's all for now, i'll try to keep you guys updated with the progress, in a meantime i guess i'll go to sleep since it's almost 4 AM here, lol.

      Goodnight.

It's was so quite at home, and i thought i can sleep more, and got up only 1 PM LOL, that was funny, but i guess it's natural, if i went to sleep 4 AM :f_cool: Got my breakfest allready, so i think i'll go to read some some silver articles, watch few videos and later have another session :f_biggrin: .

      Wish me good luck :f_mad:

      EDIT: v0.02 means blog days :f_p:

      LOL, just noticed that i have won a ticket to one tourney which is going to start in a few hours and it's ticket only tourney. It's Drive a Dream weekly qualifier with the $5K prizepool witch will be paid out to the top 1000 players! And the top 100 players will also gain entry to the Drive a Dream Final Satellite with 15k prizepool and too packages to Drive the Dream final in London. Hopefully weekly tourney will go smoothly :f_biggrin:

      Since it's tourney day today, i guess i'll play bounty tourney too, wich is about one buyin to NL10.

      Thats all for now, any feedback? :f_confused:

      Didn't played bounty tourney, since i was late for registration. So i had almost 1.5 hands session. At the beggining it was quite bad, made first mistake, and went to [ - ]. After that game was a bit unlucky. Mainly had 3 bad beads AA, AK, KK thingies. Well i read some articles at morning and i was mostly good minded, and was thinking only on stacks, not the money i lost and didn't lost control, in the end session went quite good.

      Here's today's graph so far:


      As you see in graph, you can cleary see 3 downs, but anyway, i made my day with ~1BI+ and only need few points for $50 bonus :f_love:

      Drive the dream weekly just started, i hope i'll get deep and update progress everybreak ;)

      Man u better don't look at red line. Just play as it goes. On NL10 u should play ABC poker and avoid wild bluffs. So it's ok if u'll lose non SD. It will greatly compensated by ur SD winnings with nuts, coz everyone here wants to pay u money to see ur nuts :D
