    Hello guys and girls

    My name is Botond,I'm 20,from Transilvania,Romania,but I'm hungarian. I'm in the first year of sports university starting from monday.
    I'm a beginner in texas hold'em poker but I already passed the Poker Basics quiz I learned poker with a few friends in school in 10th grade and I registered pokerstars about a year ago when I was playing only a few days for fun. This year I played some cheap 5 RON ( ~ $1,5 ) single table tounaments with a few friends for a couple of days and I totally fell in love with the game. I was the worst player among them,knowing nothing,and they taught me how to play like the good ones I than tried some tournaments at pokerstars,first with freeroll than with a few dolars and I started to love it. I won money on a few tourneys,but I still can't say I'm in +,but I'm enjoying playing with real money because I feel something is at stake,though don't intend to "invest" in poker until I learned the basics and I am able to be among the first players in MTTs.

    I will continue with the Cash Game quiz and the others and will try to learn poker

    I'm still a beginner but I am starting to feel it
    The tight-aggressive strategy helps me a lot,but I change my playing-style sometimes as it is important not to play 100 per cent by the rules

    I couldn't post to the old hand-stats topic my hand-stats for my last tournament,so I will post here :

    171 hands played and saw flop:
    - 1 times out of 20 while in small blind (5%)
    - 4 times out of 20 while in big blind (20%)
    - 6 times out of 131 in other positions (5%)
    - a total of 11 times out of 171 (6%)

    Pots won at showdown - 1 out of 2 (50%)
    Pots won without showdown - 10

    I'm thankful for every feedback

    P.S.: I ended up with little money in this tournament because my internet connection stopped

    Hi xlr609! Welcome to the forum. Here is a link that will help you to get familiar with many of the options that PSO has to offer. The stats for the tourney are a bit on the too tight side for where I try to be at. I try to be closer to 15-25% flops seen (depending on how good of cards I'm getting). The number that looks really low is the other positions, as I want to be playing more hands from the button and CO so that I can play the hand IN position and use that to my advantage. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      You forgot ( I guess ) to insert the link you were talking about or I'm not able to click on it

      Thanks for the reply,I will try to loose my strictness a bit and enter more pots,although I wasn't bad this way on the tourney either I will also try to use COs and buttons to my advantage,I see now that I've been too hard to my hands :P

      Thank you and good luck to you as well!

        Hi xlr609!

        Sorry about that, not sure why it didn't take the first time. I've fixed it in my post.
