Ty RyPaC13,i will keep weekly

Ty RyPaC13,i will keep weekly updates on my blog!

Speaking of updates,first week is over,and i have increase my bankroll, but i am not happy with my game.

I see i have problems against player who min.donk bet against me,and i play too passive in this situation, i call them where i should raise or just fold,so i let them outdraw me...,need to fix this leak cause i think im spewing alot of money here,and i think the main problem here is that i act before i think the situation over,so now before i do anything,i use almost all the time i have in the hand before i act,what do you do when someone is min.donking all the streets?

I am a little bit lost also when it comes playing from the SB,when the Villain is just limping the BTN,i really dont know what is the optimal play 22-25BB depp, when i have AK,AQ,AJ, do i just raise the limp or do i open shove?I usualy open shove,but i am experimanting with raising for 3,5BB, can someone tell me what is the best play here shove or raise?and what is the bottom range for raising a BTN limp from the SB?

So here are the results from the first week:

Tournaments playt:438

Winnings:60$

ROI:13,9

ITM:37,7

Bankroll:230$

My bankroll is 341$,but i decided to finish the month by playing 1$, i will start playing 3$ buyins at the start of the next month, need to exchange my star point for money, have 3953points so i need one more step of points so that i can get 40$ of cash rebate.It will be a nice boost to my bankroll so i feel more comfortable playing 3$ buyins.

Hey :)

Its the end of the month,another week gone,and its time for a report.

So last week of the month, was a very terrible week.Well except for my unexpected journey to 100$Spins.I started to play 3$Spins cause i have the roll to do so but i couldn make a positive day in the whole week,except for yesterday, and on top of that i got a fever on friday so i was MIA from tables for 3days, still have a mild cold,but things are better.But i couldn play as much as i wanted.And there was only one winning day the whole week. So another month has started and lets hope things will turn around for me. In the update and the graph i didnt include 100$spins,cause i think it doesnt make any sense to put them in.

Week 4:

Tourney:401

Winnigs: -113$

ROI: -11,4

ITM: 32,7

Graph

My bankroll is now 727$ and i will continue to play on 3$Spins.

So after a long consideration,i finnaly got myself some coaching :), and im very happy that i made this decision. I choosen a coach from pokerstrategy, maybe some of you know him as Tim64 or onthestoop.Got my first coaching on wednesday, and i can say  it was very eye opening, and i really like how he explains things, he makes  everything logical and easy to understand, so i hope i will have a long term coaching with him.

And i also have got a SpinHUD  free trial version for 20days from NotecaddyProTools and i really like it, and i will probably buy it after my free trial expires.

Gl at the tables and see ya next week :)

Hi :)

Srry for no updates this month,but more or less i been away from the tables this month,cause i had other things that needed to be done, i playt less then 500 games this month, but couldnt do anything about it, and now im back to full grind mode this month, so i will be doing my weekly updates.

I got this mail from stars today :(((

Dear justmrwn
Our management team regularly reviews our operations market-by-market to assess commercial opportunities and business risks for our brands. Following a recent review, we regret to inform you that we have decided to stop offering real money games to players who are physically located in - or have a registered address in - Slovenia from July 4, 2016. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope you’ve enjoyed your experience. We hope to resume real money operations in Slovenia at some time in the future, and invite you to continue playing with your existing account on our play money site here.
 

Player balances remain safe and secure, and players are able to withdraw their real money balances at their convenience.
You will be able to withdraw to your Visa/Entropay card or MasterCard providing you have used them to deposit within the last 12 months. If you have not, you will need to deposit with them beforeJuly 4 to be able to do so. Alternatively, you will be able to withdraw your funds using NETELLER, Skrill, Direct Bank Transfer or Wire Transfer, depending on your Stars Account balance.

A full question and answer page has been provided for affected players.

Any outstanding tournament tickets or T-money will be converted to cash. A $1 VIP Cash Rebate has been added to the VIP Store that can be purchased for 100 StarsCoin in order to facilitate players who would like to convert their StarsCoin to cash. Players who have made progress on their current VIP Step will receive the full prorated value of their current Step credited if the amount is 250 StarsCoin or more. Please allow up to 72 hours from July 4 in order for these credits and conversions to take place.

We hope to be able to return to the market in due course, and will continue to support the implementation of fair and consistent regulation that serves the needs of all stakeholders and includes a strong commitment to consumer protection, particularly of vulnerable people, in Slovenia. There is already a successful framework for such regulation in Europe, and we are currently licensed in 12 EU countries. We hope to apply for a licence in Slovenia when it is possible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Hi guys :) Im back to

Hi guys :)

Im back to grinding again and it feels good. :)) So since pokerstars decide that they withdraw from our country,i could only play the first 3days in july on pokerstars, then i decided that i will play on ipoker skin(William Hill).

So there is diffrence betwen the Spins and the Twister SnG.Twister SnG has only 2min blinds each lvl,and on lvl 2 you get antes, which leaves with not so much maneuvering room to play around with chips.There is also no 7$buying as on Stars,i had to choose betwen 5eur or 10eur, and i decided to start with 5eur, i could maybe play the 10eur cause i have 150buyins for that limit, but decided to play on 5,cause i like a little more of  a roll to work with i was thinking like 200buying for 10eur.

I also bought Sentin7 Spin and Go pack,which is a combination of Spins and Crushing like a Boss videos, and im trying to work alot of the tables,watch a video every day,even rewatch some things to understand better, and i think progress is showing. I been seeing progress especialy on my Non Winnigs Showdown graph,where before the graph was just a downhill slope. Now is actulally going up into the hill, and im happy about,that my game is slowly progresing.

So i will post 2 updates one will be from Pokestars , another from Ipoker.

Hey guys,

So it has been a good week, been playing a deceng volume and also i am happy that my game is also progressing.Had another coaching session yesterday, we went thru a few sessions that i played and the coach says he sees good progression in my thinking of ranges of villains and adapting to players. He told me that i can move up to 10Eur buyinthink of it as a promotion :D, i started to play today, and in general i think from what i saw from the small sample i did, there isnt much diffrence to the 5Eur, except for mybe some more agression.I will see how it goes.

Hey :) My first week on 10Eur

Hey :)

My first week on 10Eur buyins,and probably my worst week ever.Was down 25buyins,manage to grind it back to -7.5buyins.Still very unhappy with my game,playing worst then i did on 5Eur buyins,dont know the exact reason for this,mybe cause of the new limit that i play and just being somewhat scared of mybe better players,but from what i have seen the diffrence its not that big if any.I been missreading alot of villaing hands,calling rivers when i should be folding,and folding when i should be calling,being to aggro in spots where i know the villaing has a hand,but still going trying to go thru the wall with my head.Lost a little bit of confiedence cause of that,i could see that cause of my passive approach in the last day of playing.Need to get my confiedence back and start crushing.Gonnna go thru the HH and watch some more training videos.

Hellow :)

Well another month has gone bye, how time flies wthen you playing poker :)).Well this pass 2 weeks have been probably the worst,but im not gonna moan about it,o did enough moaning to my coach :D. Part of my failure was variance, and most part was me, but need to learn from this, and try to comeback stronger.I have gone down one limit, and will rebuild my roll to give 10eur another shot,and i will prevail :D.Need to putt more evord in posting hands,and discussing the hands on the forum,or else i think i wont progress so quick and much as i want to.

Heres the 10eur graph from last week of the month,that made me claim down one step on the latter..

Hey :)

So lets do a little update whats been going on for the last 14days :). I been having the sickets 14 days in september and i mean that in a very positive way. Im up almost 800eur in 14days, i know this kind of ROI is not sustainable, but i damn feels good after not moving anywhere for the last 1,5half month.And most of my winnigs comes from 4 and 6x mulitpliers, won only one 10x and 10s, so still waiting for some big multi to hit me. Had 1hour more of coaching previous week, just going thru the hand i market, some tough situation, looking forward for some more coaching.Now im also mixing 5s and 10s together, i start at 5s for warmup :) see how it goes and move to 10s, if its not going good at 10s i just move down to 5s.Dont wont to fully commit to 10s, need more of a bankrol.
