The Wild Hungarian girl's life change for poker

The Wild Hungarian's story

I have never written a blog before also never tried to play poker so why not now??

I'm as my favorite person describes me a "Wild" 26 years old Hungarian girl far from my natural habitat by playing poker.

So why did I start it? Here is my story.
/ I am warning you that my sense of humor is very unique which means basically just I like it. /

Everything started at this summer. I am in a lucky position cause I have met with the best people ever who became my friends. They are my boyfriend's friends so now mine too, period . We had an amazing summer with awesome festivals and holidays and endless parties.

Picture of almost everybody:



As my boyfriend they are all poker players and to tell the truth they are very very good poker players. At all the summer they were grinding at our place at least every Sunday but usually 2-3 times a week so I was next to them all the time when they played. I started to think about how cool that would be if I would also make money when I'm hanging around them watching them playing poker so we talked about it with my boyfriend and after some weeks of thinking we decided that I will quit my job cause it was 40 hours a week so I never had time for anything else next to that job.
The other fact is that other people are paying for professional poker players to teach them how to play poker and my boyfriend is an actual professional poker player so ...? I just felt like there's a reason why all these people came into my life so I listened to my intuition which kept saying: do it!

...so now ALL my time is about poker, learning poker, playing poker, talking about poker and now writing about poker.

When I first experienced that I don't make any income cause I quit my job was pretty miserable. I knew I will not be able to make money for a while...
I felt like I'm not an important useful person cause before the fact that I made money was a kind of result of my every days. And now it stopped to exist.
Honestly it really gave me hard times. I extremely do miss making money.
But after numerous of conversations I could get to that level where I truly understood where I am now. I'm in that level where I just invest in myself and I keep studying and practicing.

When I started to play for real money and the first time I was running bad (I prefer to say variance was with a negative effect on me) I reacted emotionally. Nothing extreme, I just got super sad and lost my motivation.
I think this happens with every single poker player at the very beginnings. I needed also not just one deeper conversation to understand what should I feel and how a poker player feels and reacts.

1# A poker player doesn't feel. (nice huh?)
2# A poker player is not result orientated but mistake orientated.
3# If you wanna count something count the VPPs
4# You can not miss out the everyday studying.
5# Poker challenges your whole personality. You win only if you are wise (and patient in long tournaments).
6# "It's like trying to lift a big weight. You need to build up to it."

That's what I know now.
I both try to improve mentally as with the strategy of my game, hard to decide which is more difficult.

Where I am now in poker? At the very start, lowest stake in 6max hyper turbo SNG. Btw today I played my first woman tournament but I will talk about it next time!



Thank you for being a part of my poker journey and special thanks for the idea to write a blog with the helping advices to PatriQ Leon, Daniel, Adam, Konrad, and a GIANT HUGE GLORIOUS THANK FOR MY BOYFRIEND: JAMES <3

Re: The Wild Hungarian girl's life change for poker

when will you be posting HHs? profit/loss updates?
Do you have a bankroll? What stakes will you be playing?

Points #1-#6 in your first post are so important. Especially #2. Very rare for an amateur to understand these things. Although I don't fully understand what #1 means. I'm assuming it has something to do with not letting tilt affect one's A-game, or not allowing loss to dictate future decisions. But I think it's important for a poker player to have some sense of feeling as it relates to exploiting and reading opponents. Whether it's ESP or instinct or intuition. A robot can identify patterns but it can't identify other human tendencies. After all, poker is a game played with people. So having these kinds of feelings is necessary, especially in live play.

I'll answer #1 for her, it pretty much means like if you ft bubble an mtt you can't let it effect you afterwards, you just need to zone it out and forget about it as soon as possible and move on. IMO think thats whats makes a lot of the best HS MTT players the best. they dont go and punt off their other mtts becuase the FT bubbled a bit one and still try to recover their day/night..

Re: The Wild Hungarian girl's life change for poker

Hey, Thanks Konrad!
Yeah, I meant "1# A poker player doesn't feel." that when it's all in and you have TT and your opponent has 44 and the flop is 429 and no T on the turn and the river you don't feel like it's not fair and get angry after several situations like this in a session.

After I got some nice powerful brain washes about the right attitude I took it seriously. You shouldn't be happy when you win cause when you will loose you will be unhappy.
Not everyone is gonna agree with that but I will think like this. I just try to pick up the right habits at the very start cause later it will be harder to change.

About HHs and all your other questions and where I am in my progress I will start to post from today, my first post was just an introduction.

Btw Dashy, I read your blog and it's very interesting, good luck for you!!

Poker only takes and never rewards. Very few women can raise self discipline and control on high level. This will be extremely hard for you but you got my admiration for giving this a serious thought and a try. Best of luck beauty.

Re: The Wild Hungarian girl's life change for poker

subbed, GLGL!

Points #1 and #4 are important, the mental game is underrated and most players don't spend enough time working on it - you'll be in good hands with Drunk! And everyday studying's essential - there is no such thing as becoming a "complete" player, you never stop learning and you need to work forever and ever on your game.

Hope it goes well!

Thank you Mikey!!!!

I totally agree, everyday I have to study and I'm really working on it! If you have any advice or a source which you think would help or anything I'm very opened to it!
I play 6max hyper turbo SNGs, I know you play turbos but maybe there would be something what helps me to be better in poker cause I really seriously want to be good at it.

I hope too that it goes well and we can visit you soon and I also could gamble for the bill after dinner

Haha, becoming a degen already we are? ..I might even be returning to Buda next year so you're on!

I've actually started mixing in a really low concentration of $15 6max hypers, just for the fun of it more than anything else, but yeah, I basically play exclusively turbo's. I've written a tonne on strategy from blog posts, website articles and just my own ramblings so I can fire some stuff your way. It won't be relevant to hyper turbo's but a lot of the theory cross applies and will get you thinking about some concepts more than anything.

In the meantime, I'll throw in some articles I found particularly useful so be sure to take a look:

http://www.philgalfond.com/poker-and-your-life/ - this is basically gold

http://www.philgalfond.com/quick-upd...-poker-player/

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/18...-poker-671391/ - this is pretty old but this initial post has some good stuff, learning that you suck is a good thing! I'm sure Drunk will enjoy this post

http://www.quora.com/What-is-it-like...d=Xxfo&share=1

http://www.twoplustwo.com/magazine/i...od-for-you.php - why the hell not!


That should provide you with enough fun in the meantime, anything else just hit me up!

Lightbulb Re: The Wild Hungarian girl's life change for poker

Hey there!

I have never played poker before so EVERYTHING is new in it. The fact that I have to learn it in English obv makes it way harder but I feel like maybe now it's not that hard anymore as it used to be.

So what is my final long term goal? To be the best woman poker player in the world. Nothing special.



As every challenge needs a time limit I have a time limit for getting to an okay-good level in poker and that is one year maximum. Okay-good level means I make a living from it. If that couldn't happen than I'm realistic and I would go back to find a normal job and that's it. No doubt I wanna get to that level in poker where I can continue this path just I'm realistic and I need to face with a borderline in time and in results too.
I think this is fair.
And I'm pretty sure limited time and pressure can be with a positive effect on me.

So more specifically my first goal is to get to the okay-good level and play on $30 6max hyper turbo SNGs ASAP.
And I wanna learn tournaments too cause I really enjoy them.

I have savings and now I play from a very little bank roll on $1.50 6max hyper turbo SNGs and I will move up stakes if I make just small and a few mistakes.

So now I'm playing for learning and not for earning.

Usually I just break even or I make a few dollars during 40 max 60 tournaments per day. I started with 12 than 20 and soon I played 40 a day and until now I did max 60 a day. I try to play more tables eventually but now I only can play on 2 tables. But my attention is definitely better on 1 table now.
I don't play every day but 5-6 times a week. I try to study every day before playing.

Our last lesson was very effective and useful and I learned a lot AND after it for the first time I made 20 dollar profit during my session. I played only 20 tournaments cause I studied a little after almost every tournaments if I did the right thing or not and so on..
so it took way more time to play these 20 games than usually but for improving this slower study-play session definitely works way better for me.

You can see my results at this link:

        Btw I am struggling in different situations to know my raise call, raise fold, and shove range so I have to work on it.
