  1. I'm back after a looong while.New challenge that I actually plan on sticking with:D

    So yeah I have played very little poker during the last few months,mostly because of school. I have played some casual live games with friends and some sit&go's online but that has been about it.However last weekend I got a cool idea for a long term challenge that I started on Pokerstars.

    Basically I started with just a 100$ bankroll and will do my very best to grind it up during the next 1.5 years,or until I graduate from school.I haven't set an end goal yet but I'm going for ...

  2. Finished 12th out of 25 in the tournament:(

    So yeah that was a pretty disappointing finish for me.The tournament got off to a great start for me by winning with T6hh against AA and 65s on 432hh.After that I got moved to another table which was 10-handed so I couldn't really play many hands with a lot of short stacks at the table as well.The fact that I was super card dead didn't help either.Eventually I got down to about 2k with the blinds at 150/300.The table was 6-handed at this point so I was just waiting for any decent hand to shove it ...

  3. Won my seat yesterday in a satellite :)

    So yeah after trying to qualify for the same tournament last year and failing miserably,I ran hot and binked a seat in the first satellite I played.It was a 5€ rebuy that had 41 people.It started really slow for me and I didn't really do much until the 125/250/50 level where I jammed 66 over a 2.5x and flat for 20bbs.I got called by AK and AQ and somehow held.From there I pretty much cruised,raising a lot of pots and picking up a few nice hands along the way.At the final table my run good really ...

  4. 3 week break from playing(Possible live tournament in the future)

    So yeah have hardly played at all,besides a few sit&go's on Titan poker.Just seems I don't have the motivation to grind anymore,not sure why.Mostly been focusing on school and preparing for On-the-job training,which is in less than 2 months.Really kind of stressed about it and hoping it ends up going well.But back to poker.There's a local live tournament this month which you can only qualify online for.I tried qualifying in the same tournament last year,coming painfully close twice,basically ...

  5. School time:D

    So yeah school started yesterday,had just a one hour day where we went trough the study plan and other stuff.Today was a solid 8 hours though,which was rough.But overall my schedule isn't that bad besides Monday and Tuesday,doubt I'll have the energy to play poker on these days but Wednesday and forward I think I can get in some volume.Haven't played at all on Pokerstars for a while so nothing to update there.I've been playing some 10$ 6-max sng's on Titan which are incredibly soft.I peaked at 266€ ...

  6. Not running great the first week:(

    So yeah,I played the MTT's a week ago,lost pretty much everything I played including the Sunday Million which I qualified for.I really think I should have just unregged and shipped the tournament dollars but I figured I might as well take one crack at it.Busted that in a propably avoidable situation.I had around 14K at 150/300/25 blinds,minraised JJ in middle position to 600,sb flatted with around the same stack,then the big blind who had me covered around 20K 3bet to 1800.I don't remember if he ...

  8. Some great news:D

    So a little change of plans happened yesterday.I was playing the 3.50$ 18 mans for the last 2 days and got to 226.14$,nothing too spectacular but profit is profitAnyway that's not really the news.I was talking to a poker buddy of mine on skype who I've known for propably 2 years now and we both respect each others games.He grinds the mid stakes 18 mans regularily so once I told him I was playing the games he asked if I wanted to get staked.I happily accepted since you don't get too many chances ...

  9. My first blog post...And a challenge:)

    Hi guys I decided to start writing a blog,mostly because I've never really typed out my thoughts on a blog.However I figured it would be best to start now that I've found new motivation towards playing poker and building a bankroll again.For the past 2 months or so I've been on my summer holiday and thought that I would once again start playing a bunch but that didn't exactly happen.I was so tired from school that I really just wanted to relax and enjoy not having to get up at 6 a.m and getting ...
