Daily Result

Hello guys, today did not go so great.  But as you can see I did not play so many hands. What did I do wrong?
I tell you what I did wrong.

Y = Money, X= hands.

As you can see I lost 2 buy ins between the 153th and 161th hand.
Why? I lost my concentration, My mate called me on skype and begun to chat about HoN and all possible stuff, this is not the first time I´ve reacted this way, making bad calls/bets during an skype conversation. So in the future, Im going to make changes while grinding in sessions. Put Away status on skype, close all web browsers, put on silent on the phone.  Might feel to you as a reader that I blame my losses on different stuff, but to be honest everytime I´ve begun to talk on the phone while playing poker it has gone bad. 

After that I pulled myself together tried to grind, got a little upswing but the loss was to big for my mind, and I lost another buy in. Anyways as I always says, there is always a tomorrow. So cya then

Weekly result

Hey guys! First of all...Im really sorry for not having posted anything for several days. After my last post, I went totally batshit. I was minus maybe 5 bucks.But then... I man'd up. Like I always do on the verge of destruction.
Took some easy money from drunkies and made some money while drunk aswell haha. But anyways now Im safe again with 12 Buy ins. Here's the last few days result.

So what did I do to change the direction of my losing? There was two things.

1. DONT PLAY WITH NOTHING, THESE BITCHES AINT FOLDING(AK that missed flop and I be like turning the AK into a AK47 and shoting 'em up with my stack).

2. I noticed that when I was on profit, or I am on profit however I feel like Im playing with play money. So my state of mind all the time right now is, play good you are back at square 1.

Hello guys, as you can see today didnt go well. Well, I dont want to blame luck, but seriously there was one guy that called me All in preflop 3 times, First he got a three of a kind, second time he got a straight and on the third he got a straight again. I had AA the last 2 times. Im not going to say anything about this last hand, just so you can see what kind of scrubs Im playing against.

Another day of +- Today I didnt feel like playing 6 hours of poker. But still I got some very nice hands. And I keep on improving my game. As usual im +1 Buy in and then loses it all. TBH I dont know why, I think im unconsciously tilting. This is the hand when I started tilting I guess.

BTN wins k20.24

Nasty flop huh? I´ve seen many calls at 8BB for JTs aswell as KQ. This hand was just too dangerous to play. But I still tilted on it for dropping those precious aces. What could have been done? Well generally a bigger preflop raise but still no. Since no one calls those +10 BB raise preflop at my level. Anyways I asked the guy what he had. He said KK.

Over and out, Mr.Fredrik

Goals for March

Hey guys, so the yesterday result were minus one buyin. I mean I was plus 2 buy ins but started losing. I think it was cause of lack of concentration in the 6th hour. But anyways, I have some goals for March which I hope is gonna help me get focused.

1. Play over 15 000 Hands.
2. Reach 2500 SEK(50 buy-ins)
3. Review more hands in this blog.

Cant think of something else that this is gonna get awesome.

Grinding Grinding Grinding

Slow grinding atm. When I woke up today I tried the shortstack again, lost 3 buy ins. Then I begun to play with normal stack again(100BB) and things started going better. Its so much more fun to play normal stack. I can more easily bluff and play hands in position that in short stack I cant. Anyways im +1 buy-in atm and my goal is +2 Buy ins per day.

Having my break atm, very important since I feel like doing something else. Cya o7

Yep so here is my result for the day. And that is not a $ by the way, since I play in another currency that is 1,2 SEK. I mean wtf I did +- for almost 6 hours. Am I mad? A little bit, but still playing over 1K hands of learning and it was learning aswell as you can see I had 17 sessions with breaks(probably 8 sessions dealt over 6 hours since it counts the tables). Tomorrow I will do it better, a lot better.

Its night time now, and there is no reason to play when tired. As last word I just want to say this. There is always a tomorrow and this is real money. You should not play around with it, its serious buisness when it comes to money even tho I lost the feeling of money which is debatable haha

Hero wins k71.47

Three of a kind is such a strong hand! Its almost invisible, cause the raises are almost like top pair. Anyways lets Review the hand too see if I made some mistakes. Im hero btw :). 2 BB for pair is good call. Im out of position as SB so raise is not in the question here. As I hit the flop, the reasons why I raised was cause there was a flush draw on the table. Same thing on the turn. The reason why I did instant all in at river was cause I felt there was so much in the pot that he HAS to call me. Also the turn call is pretty obvious he is gonna call me on the river aswell. My guess is that he had AK or 2 pair, he told me in chat that he had 2 pair but u never know :)

At which tables do I sit?

Felt there was too much to read in the previous post so Im going to keep it short and tight just as my game

I sit at the 5-man tables doubletabling. Im also shortstacking, Just cause it feels safer. I get almost 50 short stack buyins instead of 10 maximum buyins. Im also playing in 45 minute sessions so I keep my concentration up, feels much better to play then aswell. So right now Im having a break.

Today Im minus 80 SEK which would be 8 short stack buyins. But really it doesnt matter cause if I win 3 all ins at one table it would be +- :P. Going to grab  something to drink now, maybe a break for 20 minutes just to keep my focus up so I dont push all in with nothing, Like I did with almost all of these 8 buy ins.

The Next Poker Pro!

Hello Guys!

Im really excited in making a poker blog and Im really going to try to keep it active.

What will this Blog be about then?
1.This blog will be about No limit Texas Hold'em low stakes.
2.I will post hands, discuss them a bit, make some comments how I should have done or just post a really nasty one.
3.My daily profit, Im using poker tracker 3.
4. My progress to become the next poker pro!
5.Pretty much everything that I use to become profitable.

So lets begin!
To introduce myself; My name is Fredrik and Im from Sweden. I´ve been playing poker with real money for some months now but its until now I´ve understood some very important steps to become profitable. The poker site Im playing at right now is Svenska Spel with the Swedish curreny SEK.

Discipline and Position. This is all you need to know.
Discipline is to play good hands in the correct position, dont try to bluff a player that cant fold his hand. Discipline is also not play over extend your playing. Discipline in poker is bankroll management which I will talk more about later. A good player with no discipline cant become profitable in the long run. Discipline also means no tilting.

About bankroll management, when I first started off playing with money, I played with 50% of my bankroll at one table. Sure I won some money but the next day I lost it all. When I started playing at the Swedish website I was about +$300 dollars but...I played with too high stakes for my tiny bankroll. I didnt have the patience, and I lost it all. This time however Im going to be patient and profitable.

My plan is to go to the next level when I have +25 maximum buy in for that level. And that is my bankroll management. For every grand I make in SEK, I deposit 200 from it. This is to slow me down and take more time at the tables.

 This is my current bankroll, its in SEK. In US dollars this would be about $75. So its no giant money we are talking about here, and the tables are really low, about $7 maximum buy in.

Alright Hope you enjoy it and comment on the hands!
