My way to highstakes

Hi everyone,i make decision to wrote a diary,rather for myself i can track my local goals, when time is come and stars are right and i play on 400/800 tables , it will be interesting to watch how i reach my goals.
On my sadness there too far from me, im playing 0.25/0.50, playing on stars and 888, mainly 9 max adding 6 max sometimes, but in future i think to move on 6 max almost.Another motivation for creating blog for me is practice in english, this is not my native language, i hope readers will understand me and not melt his brains because of my language)

I think on 888 weaker playing than stars, but problem that on 888 not many tables 9 max, on 6 max i think harder

Jump to NL100 was total success, stars gave me very good upstreak and it's really amazing then when all going good there is no want to work on game, thinking about hands etc

Re: My way to highstakes

Funny that october 17, US reaches debt ceiling and this could lead to potential default, with like 95% of my money in USD it feels not really great... As i understand all is normal now at least till middle february, in that month for those who dont know in Russia will be Winter Olympics

Re: My way to highstakes

lately i work on my play with vods by Janda, start to learn the GTO, learned that i must decrease level of my aggression,and play more middle hands through check/call, may be thats right as on high stakes opponents probably can very fast adjust to high aggresion and you must be carefull

Have big swings on stars recently

Playing 45k hands break even is tough, thanks to the bonuses it still bring some profit

Re: My way to highstakes


2014 started rather badly, first days were good but then I lost my game and a lot of money, at some point I was ready to play on lower stakes. But In mid January I found translation of YaDaDaMeeN21 blog. I was motivated by his success in 2013, concentrated on my play and had break even results for the month, even run above EV. I think I can keep up this pace, have a good day

Re: My way to highstakes

I decided to start playing one more game of poker and finally chose MTT, because it's easy to mix it with cash games, plus I have big experience playing 9-max. Currently I play 8-9m cash tables and 3-4 $20-50 tourneys, when I'm more confident in myself I'll try more expensive ones. Also want to get more experience playing tourneys and if bankroll is big enough I really want to go to WSOP

Re: My way to highstakes

Hello everybody, a lot of time since my last post, now when quarter of 2014 has passed it's time for checkpoint
Overall it's not so bad, i feel more confident on nl200, and if everything goes on OK i will give nl400 a shot in May, with larger bankroll.
It'd be cool to get a car for summer, something like
but it's really expensive in Russia (about 150 - 200K), not so easy to get with my 15K bankroll, so will go by subway... Russian subway, btw


So the only chance to stop go by subway is to win some good MTT, so far results are:

Re: My way to highstakes

Hey everyone, it's been a while since the last update. Good news: I've reached 10k in June!
July seems ok so far as well. I've stopped topping over EV by rather improving my strategy.
Also I managed to get to the final table in $109 R MTT. Although it had been looking promising during the tournament, I ended up at 8th place.

Funny thing is there was one player from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia respectively. I wish there had been a player from Kazakhstan so it would like a USSR getting back together)))

And a few days later there were two more final tables. Christmas came early!
And 3rd place in $75 MTT, but I couldn't find it in the lobby to take a screenshot. Hope you'll trust me on this
I'm actually toying with an idea to stop wasting money in cash and switch to MTT. The time and energy I've put into learning MTT is beginning to pay off. Maybe it's time to start learning chinese poker as well)

Have a good one!
