    Hey guys!
    A little bit about myself : My name is Valentin and I'm from Romania. I started playing poker in late 2010 and after a full year of fishing around I finally decided to take the game seriously. In dec 2012 I deposited 20$ and after watching lots of videos on PSO and Pokerstrategy I began playing.
    Started off with 50c 45m & 90m turbos and soon moved to
    1$ & 1.50$ ones. I began adding some 1-2$ mtts to my daily grind and not far after I came out 2nd in one and took down 430$. So here I was with a BR of 600$!! and what did I do? I cashed out 400 and continued with even more mtts, higher ones too. Big mistake! in just a couple of weeks variance
    took me down.
    After a small break I deposited 100$ and started with 1.50$ ko 90m ( 15min blinds )Played these for about one month and once my BR got to around 300$ I added in 2.50$ 90m and 4.50 180m. After grinding these for about 3 months I got up to 1.2k but I had to cash all out due to personal needs.
    So here I am again with a BR of 100 bucks.

    I'm going to play 50-50s this month and see how it goes mostly because reg 90m sngs are too exhausting
    ( 5+h sessions ). If things don't go well I'm planning to move back and play regs.

    Here are my goals for July :

    *Play only 1.50$ fifty-fifties

    *Maintain Goldstar this means I'll have to play a min of 140 games / day

    *Have a 5% roi ( 7.5c/game x 4200 = 315$ )

    *Update this blog every couple of days

    *Beg Andy and Dave for a 50-50 live training

    Hopefully by the end of the month my BR should be around $550

    100$ initial BR + 315 profit + 25$ vpp cash + ~ 125$ from fpps by playing 70fpp & 33 fpp satellites

    I will play short & sharp sessions of 40-45min and between 18-24 tables at once ( there's good trafic for 50s)

    Wish me luck in this crazy challenge of mine! Hope I stay motivated for the hole month.

    Keep you guys posted

        Things didn't rly go so well. I played about 1.5k games and it was all good until I went onto a big downswing due to 5 horrible sessions in a row ( around -10BI each). Ended up with around 25$ profit out of those 1.5k games so I decided to stop the 50-50 frenzy for now. I started playing reg sngs about 3 days ago and it all went pretty smooth.

        My new goals for July :

        *play 5-6 reg sng sessions / week

        *maintain Goldstar

        *play 2-3k 2nl/5nl 6-max zoom hands / day

        *qualify for premier skill league via 1.10$ qualifier

        *update this thread every 2 days ( for real this time ) with graphs, hands etc.

              I ran pretty horrible at the beginning of the session but I managed to FT 5 out of 9 remaining SNGs which brought me a nice profit of 40$. I also made a deep run in the $1.10 1k cap mtt. Ended up on 17 unfortunately and took $6.

                I didn't do well in the 1.50 kos, lots of bubble busts and not even one top 3. Played some mtts too of 1 - 3$ and like 2 x 5$ micromillion events but it didn't rly work out.

                Here's the graph for the past 2 days :

                      Slacked a lot these past couple of days. I only played 2 small sngs sessions and couple of mtts. I was lucky enough though to make a FT in a $1.35 ko but came out just short, busted on 6.

                          Things went really well lately. I've managed to hit my second FT this week but again, I came out just short:

                          I had some problems with PT4 and I had to reinstall postgreSQL. Lost the database but it doesn't really matter because I know most of the regs on 1.50 & 2.50 and have notes on them. Here is the graph for the last week. The volume sucks but I ran good ^^

                            I lost a lot of time this July with 50s but it was a good month overall I made a profit of around 400 bucks.
                            My goals were pretty ambitious considering that a reg sng/mtt session takes from 4 to 6 hours so I didn't have enough time for 2k hands/day @ zoom. That's why I failed to maintain goldstar, I only made 1.6k vpps. Having 2 x fpps and an entry to the 100k gold+ freeroll is kinda nice but I don't think the bonus hours I have to put in are worth it. I also managed to qualify for the premier skill league just by playing 10x 1.10$ qualifiers and even made a nice profit out of them ^^

                              Another deep, another bust 33/1736 in the $2.75 slow mtt. I had to flip for my life in the tourney and I lost Its a bit frustrating coz I keep making this deep runs but I always end up just short. The only thing I can do is to stay positive, play my A game and get in volume. I'm sure "the big win" will eventually come.
