The Road To Highstakes

Hello!

I am a $100 NL poker player from Sweden. I am someone who has always loved games with strategical thinking. I played my first poker game at a friends house in late 2014 and fell in love with the game(even though I played like a toothless ****** and busted after 15 minutes). A few weeks later I thought I was the s*** when I beat all my classmates on ZyngaPoker and watched all the Daniel Negreanu training videos on Youtube. This lead me to get an account on Pokerstars in april, 2015, and I have been playing poker professionally for 8 months.

The purpose of this blog is to update you on my (hopefully good) results in poker, and ofc posting some graphs with sexy redlines . Here's a pretty tight graph from today: https://gyazo.com/a595af632dc0ad24e94cdcf029403b50

I'll keep you guys updated! Peace

Re: The Road To Highstakes

Feeling kinda ****ty because i'm running $1000 under EV since the start of this blog on 01-30-2017. As a result, I haven't been playing my A game lately, mostly overbluffing in spots. But hey, mabye a weekend of partying will make me feel better.

Graph:

Winrate:


I have a 3bb/100 winrate but a 13.65EV/100 winrate, which means my hourly is $72 EV adjusted, which is pretty nice in my book.

You can also just copy your hand history from your DB and paste it in the forums with built-in handconverter when you want to post a post (click on go advanced and it should pop up as "hand converter"). It saves a lot of work instead of posting images.

-----STORY TIME-----

The process has been a struggle but i'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to share a story from my career which was the turning point where everything changed. I started my career by deposited $100 and made a promise to myself to not go busto. Months into playing online poker, I was down to $6 and I felt pretty devasted. I decided to take a shot and played a $5 spin n' go, which I luckily won. Now I had enough to play a $15 spin and go, which happened to be a 25x spin for $375. I remember the final hand: It was HU and I was in the bigblind with AQo. Btn raised and I shoved for 760 chips, he snapcalled with 77. All the chips are in the middle and second place gets NOTHING. I'm shaking- this is it. Flop was dealt 2,4,6. The turn was a 2. River is turned over. It's the queen of hearts. Wow. The excitement is overwhelming, i'm ecstatic. With this $375 bankroll booster I started playing $10 NL and from there on i've had solid bankroll management and things have been relatively steady with a few downswings.

Crushing it Really interested in hearing your thoughts in regards to poker, as we seem to play a vastly different strategy.

Getting a little frustrated. 17 stacks below EV. This is getting ridicolous
