2018 - Journey from SSNL to Midstakes + Travel Blog

Hi guys,

Ok, so this would be my third attempt at a PGC (the other two failed miserably) and I hope this time it sticks or at least leads to some +EV outcomes (both Poker/Life wise) .

Short summary: I am 32 yr old from Bulgaria working in Finance. So, in the current poker climate and age i am making no illusions that i will be chasing the poker dream or becoming a crusher. I am making more than enough in my 9 to 5 job, so i will be treating poker more like a part time income/hobby, rather than my full-time job. However, i wanted to start this for several reasons:

- Want to approach poker in a more constructive way (define play schedule, analyze hands, track results) .
- Maybe get involved in skype groups, discuss hands with other SS grinders.
- With regard to travel, i am planning to travel a lot more through the rest of the year (for now mainly in Europe) and it would be cool if i meet some of you guys f2f when i am there. I recently broke up with my girlfriend so i will try to challenge myself and travel solo

Currently i am playing 25NL zoom on stars. This year i have played only 5k hands.. and i am losing 2 BI, so no need to post graph as of now

Shortly, when i get some volume, i will start posting graphs, hands, etc.


Wish me luck and GL to all of you!

So, i have played very few hands since i started this ( i am only two-tabling until i feel more comfortable with the pool tendencies).

But for the sake of the update, here is the graph:



Basically i started off pretty well and then i lost a hand , where i made a stupid river call and then i started tilting pretty bad and lost 3 full stacks when trying to bluff in impossible spots (the hands are not even worthy of posting, because when i checked them today i was like wtf...) . So i stopped after that and played again a bit today after work, which went better, however i didnt run that good, but thats normal and i dont tilt from run bad anymore (however when i make a mistake i go on crazy monkey tilt, punting off stacks, breaking stuff... etc, still something that i cannot fix , maybe i should read "Mental game" again, i dunno)

One interesting hand though ... the villain is 16/8 over 50 hands (dat hero call , he tanked until the last second of his time bank) :
