So whats this all about

I have a dream - yes that sounds cheesy but that will not discourage me. I also have a kinda ambitious dream thats why I am making this blog to put some pressure on me - anyway - to make things short - I want to become a poker-pro which means I want to make my living playing online-poker. Why the hell would you want to do that you may ask? Yes I have a great Job and yes I make good money doing what I like to do, so why do something stupid like playing poker on teh int0rnets?

Well - I love poker!

Thats all! And I want to play it all day and all night and on weekends and on my wedding-aniversery day ... you get the idea ... So I am now starting to build up a bank-roll to play bigger and bigger online sit-and-go tournaments until I can live off what I make daily beating the shit out of weak and stupid players. Sounds great hu?

I am starting out with 100$ I deposited at PartyPoker and my first big goal is to create a bank-roll of 6'000$ at which point I can play 200$ sit-and-go tournaments with enough cash to get through tuffer times at the tables.

But that is far away and currently I am playing 5$ and 10$ sit-and-gos which is basically my second-level training. I started playing poker at Sep 24, 2004 on Pokerroom and I started out with play-money and then switched to Limit 25/25c full-tables and made over time ruffly 200$ but lost it all again playing drunk or just being a inpatient jack-ass. I then switched to NL 25/25c made about 300$ over time but lost it all again playing drunk or just being a inpatient jack-ass. I then played tournaments mostly Free-Rolls and Lucky-Dollar where up to 2'400 people battle it out. I made it into the money a view times but nothing groundbreaking and the hours one has to invest are insane, so screw that!

Ok, so just for your information, I am playing on a G5 running VPC 7 so I can play on PartyPoker. Now you can imagine the shit is dog slow and man it is but for the moment I am coping and I can still do some work while playing (23" Cinema-Display baby!)

BTW please don't mention this blog to my wife - she knows nothing about my plans for our future income so just keep it quiet - luckily she can't read english so there is not much danger from that corner but anyway better to make this clear to you right now. :-)

Recap after a month

So I had my shares of ups and downs, switching to only playing SNGs was not that easy and I learned a lot in these 20 days which I think shows a bit on the graph. My biggest weakness is still trying to double up early in the game which often ends disastrous with all them fish and 'weak' players playing any two cards ... but I think I have improved and also respecting the 'lucky fuck' on the table help me a lot to stay in the games and not trying to punish people for their luck by trying to outplay them ... anyway the trend is there I will get passed the 200$ and up and I will finish first more often and friggen shine on the stage. :-)

the magic number and 'lucky fucks'

Ok, so the last two weeks were bad, I was close to getting over 200$ a few times but every time I got into a losing streak and had to fight my way back up again (I won 405$ totally but until now I won Net 47$). Now that Party has changed their structure I first had not much trouble with it, but after a few games I now have trouble with tight tabels, I need to figure out what's going wrong or I will stay stuck in this up and down situations ... I also noticed something else lately, on a tabel sometimes there is somebody that just has his lucky day, he's not playing very clever or anything, he just gets the cards and hits with what ever he plays. So I started to just get out of hands where the 'lucky fuck' was in and behold most of the times it pays, it seems I just went after them because I could not stomach their luck, like I wanted to punish them or something but I just had to wait for other idiots to challenge their luck and lose to them ... So now I really need to get passed the 200$ or I'm gonna go tilt soon ...
