    Hello everyone!

    So its already 2 month since my last post then I promised to write about poker. Shame on me.

    Usually people stop posting then things doesnt go their way. For me its quite an opposite. Things have gone my way and because of that I had a real dilemma if I want to publish my results anymore or not. So I decided that I will talk about in more general way.

    Keyword in my results is 2x. 

    2nd half of the last year was not so good as first half.  August, October and November were quite average but on September I had big vacation (played only 21h) and on December I took a failed shot in high stakes (NL5K).

    December started really good and made best start of the month so far (€10K in 4 days) and everything seemed awesome. So at some point I added NL5K table and of course one fishy guy joined me with half buy-in which I took and I saw dollar signs in my eyes already. But then things started to go wrong and I gave him back a lot until I managed to quit him (or maybe he even left me at the end). During the session I played my biggest pot ever for €10K (QQvsKK) which I lost. And the day ended -€13K. It hurt.

    And this was just a beginning. I didnt play NL5K anymore but in next 8 playing days I went from +€11,8K  to -€1427K. It was brutal and happened just before Christmas.

    But its good that I didnt give up and in 8 days from 25. Dec to 1. January I made about €20K. I have never seen so good games than that week and of course I finally started to run good also. So I almost managed to avoid my first loosing month since start of CFP (I ended about breakeven, -€221) and also started well this year.

    Last year was my best year ever, making first time over €100K and 2x-ing my previous year. Although I was far from my goal.

    My goal for this year again is to 2x my last years result and to reach to NL5K. I have to say its going pretty good so far. Every month so far has been better than last year same time and on April I managed to make new record month by almost 2x-ing previous record. Also Im currently playing up to NL3K games.

     

    Some funny hands from higher stakes:

    1st. Against a reg:

    Hero (SB): $1,934.10
