    Hey guys,

    after almost month lasting break I am back. It was really nice holiday. I was first at Singapore. Really interesting to see this modern city. So many scycrapers I was totally blown away by that. After That I went to Tioman Island in Malaysia to become diver. It was a bit stressfull I was fucking up pretty bad but on the end I made it and I am officialy Diver. I can dive down to 18 metres. After Malaysia I got back to Europe to BPC meeting on Malta. Really awesome experience. I was first time in 5star hotel. However, mainly It was really great to see other BPC member in person. I knew the guys over year from skype so it was really nice to see them finally in person. There was lots of very valuable presentation from Gordon and I gained a lot from that. After Malta I came home after 6 months being abroad. It was great to see my family and my friends. I was on some parties and had lots of fun.

    Now It is time to get back. It is always hard to get back from the break. I started playing on  2nd of september. My focus is still not as good as I am used to but I know it is just the matter of few days to get back to the “zone”.

    Otherwise I am now still home. I am trying to figure it out where to go. I don´t want to travel on my own but more to live with some people who wants to be succesfull and who are working on themselves. I am in contact with some group so will see how it goes.

    I decided to follow some of the stuff that gordon told us.

    1. Learn 5 new economic or investment word a day. 
    2. Spend every day 30 minutes reading or watching videos about some economic or investment things. 
    3. I wanna write after every day quick review of the day. Something like a journal.
    4. Invest every month even if it is 10 euro. I already created some investment plan. So by the end of the month I will invest something.
    5. Do everyday one thing that I am afraid of. I am now at home (small village) so there is not much that I can do. Once I moved out I think best way to do everyday something I am fear of is to approach at least 1 girl.

     

    2nd of september

    I learnt meaning of these 5 new economic words: abnormal return, above water, absolute advantage, Asian crisis, J curve

    3rd of september

    I learn meaning of these 5 new economic words: Market forces, Market power, Narrow money, Nasdaq, Natural Hedge

    I also watched videos on how bitcoins works and 3 videos from Mike Maloney about the next financial crisis.

     

    Poker session:

    +

    I played solid

    Didn´t do anything stupid

     

    I played two guys that I shouldn´t. I just started play after long break so I should table select better.

    against guy who had probe 100% I didn´t adjust. I should start checking hands with two streets of value and also check some draw on flop and than raise his probe on turn.

    What to focus next sesion:

    Play only fishy guys. If he´s not confirmed fish in 30 hands leave him.

     

    Okay Guys that is everything from me. Gl in september

    Hey guys,

    so far month is going pretty good. Although I had some freedays because of birhtday party + some stuff that needed to be done. SO now I am going to play usually 10 hours a day to make 200 hours this month. I am grateful that I am beating that first month on my own.

    I watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qlAPbjLFKc where guys talk about the old economy and new economy that is already part of the world. How people should learn how to create job for themselves and others instead of depending and job security. Really interesting. I recommend to everybody watch it. The guy on the end recommend to write 3 problems that you have every day. After a month you will have 90 problems. Than choose 2-3 problems that you are most passionate about and trying to figure it out problems because being entrepeneur is about solving problems.

    So far my biggest problem is to get up from bed right after waking up. This was my problem pretty much whole life. I tried for example that I set myself that I have to get up in 15 minutes after hearing alarm and If I didn´t I would have to spend 25  minutes under cold water. Problem is that I am forced to get up but I often didn´t feel that good first hour. So often I just didn´t set alarm so I didn´t have to force myself to get up. I want to something that I wake up and will be feeling good after while and be happy to get up. I will try3 things after waking up these week.
    1) first thing I do is to look ony my goals that I put into my mobile because I noticed that usually even If I am not in a mood of playing once I look on my goals I suddenly get motivated. 
    2) Till I don´t get up I have to smile. It sound pretty stupid but I was looking on a interview with David Caperfield and he talked about friend of his that she every day after waking up just forced herself to smile. Brain is set up to release certain chemicals once you smile. “We don´t smile only because we feel good but we also feel good because we smile”.
    3) Go under shower first take hot one and after cold one. It will wake up my body.

     

    Otherwise most likely I will be moving to Costa Rica. Probably second week in a october. Really excited about new adventure.

    That is everything from me now. If anybody has any suggestion how to get up from bed asap and feeling good. Please in coment.

    Cya

    Hey guys,

    little update for september. It was my first full month outside of BPC. It was kind of solid month. I had lots of fun stuff outside of poker and 5 days before the end of the month I checked that I only played 120 hours. I made a challenge I am going to play 80 hours in the rest of month. Eventually I didn´t make it but still played 61 hours. I was really unbalanced in these days and had trouble asleep. The brain was just constantly thinking and it was really hard to fall asleep. But still I am proud I played that much hours. It was most I ever played in 5 days.

    So in september I played 181 hours and profit 5866 euro. I will probably now buy membership in upswingpoker.com. It is site created by best no limit holdem player “WCGRider”. I am a fan of him and I believe it will provide value for me. I think I didn´t improve for a few months much. I wasn´t working much outside of the tables.

    At the end of the month I will fly to Costa Rica. We are now in phase of picking up the house. Looks really epic. I am looking forward to improve my surfing skill. I was on a surf camp almost 4 years ago and I really loved it. Also it is getting pretty cold here so it will be great to spend winter time outside of Czech republic.

    That is all from me

    Thank you guys for reading and good luck.

    Hey guys,

    so october is behind us. It was actually one of the worst month but there were also some good things. So first of all I have to spend like 3 days in hospital for some small operation. Nothing serious but annoying. During the time in hospital when I had time to think I suddenly become paranoid about some things that happen in Thailand. When I was in Thailand i had there two “accidents” and it is not country where you want these “accidents” to happen 😀 but I kind of forgot about that. However when I was in that hospital I started recall it suddenly and became totally paranoid that I caught some STD. I suddenly started connecting some symptons that I had months ago to some dissease. I think I never freaked out that much in my life. I was thinking that I just fucked up my life because of some stupid mistake. SO I was like 6 days totally in stress. Luckily tests were negative so I was really grateful for that. I am usually very calm person. I ofcourse get stressed or angry sometimes but I am not really living in this all the time worried state like lots of people do. Always worried about things that could happen and in most cases they won´t. Always when I wanna achieve something I know that either I make it so it will be great or I fail and I will gain some lesson. However here it was different I was really results oriented because if results were bad it would be realy, really bad.

     

    I also spent 14 days in Poland with 5 guys. We were a bit working and pretty much every night going to clubs. It was really awesome to go with another guys who can spend whole night in club sobber and still be social and approach women. It made me again realise how alcohol is completely unecesary things. Most guys, even they don´t admit, drink  so they can loosen up and be able to talk to women but with little practice you can get into same mood without drinking alcohol and it can last whole night. However when you drink you hit that sweet spot for a little while and than you try to get there again and you are either not drunk enough or too drunk. I didn´t play there that much and I was planning to play a lot when I come back. However on the end my trip in Poland I caught some brutal throat virus. I have never felt so bad in my life. This was like worst days of my life. I couldn´t swallow, eat, drink, sleep, talk. Fuck it was terrible. After two days I got some painkiller and had to eat like 8 pain killers a day to be able to eat and drink something. Also I had to get from Krakow to Prague by 7 hours long travel n this state. It was terrible. After week I eventually get healty but I probably underestimated and after few days I caught it again. Not so brutal but I had to just lie in bed do nothing.

    So in october I think I had one of the worst days in my life. I had to spent 3 days in hospital which I never have done before. I totally freaked out because of possible disease and I spent like two weeks having so far the worst sickness in my life. I wasn´t productive I didn´t play even 50 hours but yeah I had lots of fun in Poland. I have lots of fun memories from clubs.

    So pokerwise it really sucks because of my super low volume I played 48 hours and won 802 euro but hey it is not so bad. I did almost nothing and still made like average salary in my country.

    I arrived to Costa Rica two days ago. Totally love this place. We have really beatiful big house, our own pool, like 10 minutes walk to the beach where you meet like 5 people per hour and also we have our own chef who cook for us two times a day. I pay a bit more than in Asia but hey it is worth it. This was my dream. Also Costa Rica has really beatiful nature. First day I saw like 10 crocodiles in the river, I saw big turtle, lizzard and everytime you look to sky you see like 3-5 raptor flying above you.

    Thank you guys for reading and good luck in November

    Hey guys,

    November is behind us and here is short review.

    Results oriented it wasn´t best month. However I am in Costa Rica and I love it here. Really nice people, good food, weather mostly good. I love I could get back to surfing. First and last time I surfed was 3 years ago. Having our own chef is one of the bets investment. I save a big amount of time a day. Moneywise it is almost same price as go to restaurant.  I am glad that I don´t have to do things that I don´t want to and somebody do it for me. We have been on some trips. two national parks, waterfalls and by boat on a island. Really nice.

    As I said above. Moneywise it wasn´t that great but I started playing 10 of novembre so I didn´t have that much time. I spent 148 hours playing and made 3030 euro. I started playing some tougher oponnents and especially last three days I lost a lot. I registered on run it once and I see improvements. Mainly starting to realize how much things I don´t know. So I am starting to creating some better strategy against good oponnents. I wanna be good against regulars but on the other hand I don´t have still such a huge bankroll to get into some crazy battles on nl400, nl600. I already lost about 2k this month against good oponents but I think I played good. So Now I will start table selecting good again and will study more to create strategy against good oponents and hopefull by the end of the month I can play better players again.

    Around half of the month I created new habbits. Every day I learn 20 minuts spanish, 20 minutes I look on something about investment or economy (mostly khanacademy it is really good) and 20 minutes I read. I recognize at myself that often I start doing something but after some time I stopped doing that. I read that to create a habbit you need 21-30 days. SO I will set for myself that every month I will do something (or not do) something for whole month and on the end of the month I will decided if it is worthy and I will continue in this habbit or not.

    SO this month

    20 minutes spanish

    20 minutes something about investment and economy

    20 minut reading

     

    Thanks to everybody for reading and wish you gl in december
