    And here is where I’ll change my life to a waaay better one in every aspect.
    See ya in anotha life, brotha!

    My situation

    Hello. My name is Alan, 23yo from Brazil. I live with my mom in a really small city called Imbuia and I have a great dog called Becca (a Boxer). I like to play guitar, skateboarding, chess, football and everything else there is to play… I love competition. And I never care much about life. I dropped the school before finishing because I couldn’t handle the bullshit that they try to teach you. Never knew what I would do with my life, just knew that I would not live by their rules. And after many turbulent years I think I’ve finally found my self =]

    My poker story

    I learned to play poker watching the movie Maverick from Mel Gibson when I was young, and I taught my friends how to play and we played for fun using lego pieces hahahaha. Years later I discovered NL Texas Holdem on TV. Always playing for fun. After some years I started to play online but never too serious, just enough to study a little and play some SNG. Meanwhile I was also playing live poker and doing very well. The reasons was: 1- I never tilted and always played my best game until the last chip. 2- I took the game more seriously than the others. But online I was the opposite, doing many things while playing (never playing focused), tilting, getting bored and way less excited. Then this year I decided to change for real and started to study again, finally getting to know BPC.

    Why I want to join CFP?

    When I saw BPC my first thought was “This is what I want”. This is what I need to cut down every leak that I said above and a lot more. To cut down the bullshit! After watching some Gordon videos I finally realized what I needed to do to succeed. And here I am. Finally on CFP! Now I have everything I need to do everything I want. And this, is just the beginning. I’ll start with a Bankroll of € 150 and my goal is € 60k! I’ll work very hard to accomplish this as soon as possible. I’ll update my progress at least once a week with graphics, profits, hands, etc.
    I’ll also make weekly videos with summary and hand reviews. You can find my channel here:

    @deletedsin Thx Dimitris!

    Day Zero
    Yes I’ll start from day zero, sue me.

    Finally I went through all steps and could start playing! Didn’t play too many hands because I was getting used to TableScan (and using a lot), table selecting all the time. And worked like a charm. BTW I played on NL2 because I didn’t played for 2 weeks… I needed to practice a little bit hahahaha… And yeah, I was quite slow.

    I ran pretty hot actually but played very well. But this was just the kickoff… Now the game begins.

    Week 1

    The first week was very cool. Had my first group coaching with Gordon and this made things clearer to understand. And it was a week of adaptation to the system so it obviously was a little hard to play… And that’s why I didn’t had too much volume. But yeah I’m happy with my first week. Can’t wait to pass through this part and starting grinding for real. But until there I have to do the best in this part because this is the foundation for everything else… This is a very important step although it’s a little boring.


    Not a spectacular graph but that’s not the point here. Now isn’t about winning or not losing, is only about following/understanding the system! And then we go from there… Anyway I’m happy with everything.

    @danufcs Thx and gl on your journey too!

    Short update

    Had another group coaching and it helped a lot. Helped to clarify some shit spots that the fishes put us. Now it’s on me! I’ve to pay more attention pre flop, because sometimes I fold hands that I should have opened. On post flop too, sometimes I forgot to follow the lines because of action on multiple tables. I still have to look at the charts to see if I’m right in some spots and this affect my game.


    There was some sick swings where I hit everything, then they hit everything, then I hit everything… But always going upright following the lines. Yes I did some stupid mistakes. But I have to do, right? It’s micro stakes! Mistakes are mandatory here hahahahahaha… Yeah, shut up. Anyway I tried something different… I played mostly on reg tables. They are horrible lol. It’s nice to play versus “regs” who think poker it’s about 3betting every hand, 3barreling bluff with non-sense hands and check-raise all the time AT MICRO STAKES. It’s easier and simple to play so that’s why I was chasing regs. BUT IT’S LESS PROFITABLE THAN FISH TABLES! That’s obvious, right? I just wanted to cut variance playing a simple game, but if you want money go after fishes. I hope no coach ever read this, sorry. Ah, and most of my mistakes are against huge fishes. So I cut this too.

    Have to follow more strictly the rules, pay more attention and follow the new post flop rules. Soon it will all flow naturally!

    @arianik Now I changed to zoom, so is 1k+ hands/hour 4tabling. Before was around 750 hands/hour 9tabling on iPoker. I’ll play both now. On PS for volume and on iPoker to make money

    @phgmor gl on our journey 😀

    Week 3

    Think it’s already time to stop running bad… But looks like the Poker Gods doesn’t agree with me. It’s ok, it will pass. And I’m happy since I had a good score on my reports so I’m one step closer to move to intermediate level. But need to fucking win money too to have a fucking bankroll for NL10! I’ll be there soon. And now I have changed my strategy. I’m playing on PokerStars to put volume and on iPoker to make money. Love you Zoom! Just need to stop running bad. Everything on my life is doing very well, just on poker that is shitty.


    On the first day I thought that I would start winning again… Nope. Suddenly lot’s of KKvsAA, losing AAvsUnderpairs, flopped nuts versus anything that would end up beating me. Lot’s of coolers and setups, nothing much I could do. Of course I could have ended I little better but the results would almost the same. And I wasn’t able to play 25k due to table select to avoid further losses… And I took a day off to refresh.

    In a perfect world I would not missclick so much on this lol

    – 60h for poker
    – Have a fucking profit
