      Hello,

      My name is Merily and I start to play at NL5 SH Rush @ Full Tilt.
      I´m from Estonia but now living in sunny Spain/Costa Del Sol. I rent a house here with 4 Estonian guys and all of them are pokerplayers :f_thumbsup:

      So far my goals are to beat NL5 and to beat NL25 at the end of the year. I`ll try to post my hands and graphs daily and hope to get feedback from You :f_wink:

      Also I will get help from my friend and first start to play together...


      ...and of course I will take it ceriously:f_cool:

      How big is the place you stay in and how much do you pay monthly? What other expenses do you have?

      Good Luck with the blog!

      HANDS:

      1.) Preflop:
      • First raiser- 42/4 over 24 hands and stack size shows Fish.
      • SB- unknown but considering stack size seems Fish.
      • BB- 25/11 over 101 hands and seems Reg.

      Flop:
      • Checked to me and I bet.

      Turn:
      • Turn card connects very well with board and brings flush drawSB donks AI and BB Call, first raiser Folds. What would be my right move?

      IMO I really cannot do anything against SB so the question is about BB. I put him on draw and I taught that pushing was the right option do not to let him see cheap river card.
