I guess I will stop this challenge right here, because I don't see that much merit in doing this stuff here. Thought about this, don't think to documenting is a necessary part of being a good learner - at least for me, I don't have much fun with this - it feels like a clumsy task.
On the other hand it feels a bit like giving up, but for me it was just a challenge - how it feels to do this and whether it makes me more consistant or not. Watching videos and comment some hands are much better options for me right now and focusing on other stuff. I guess all in all it was a wrong assumption that this project will help me in the way I wanted to.
... but guess what, you'll still see me around here in the forum for some hand-analysis.

Yesterday I talked with a friend of mine about poker and my way to approaching it. And an interesting view on this I found by thinking about mindset and focus. For me it's super important to maximize my focus in any given situation and perform on a high level. To get in this state of mind and check myself, if I'm doing it correctly, is very motivational task to me.
All in all I way trying the last two days to check what's important for me and saw, that I want to develop as a poker player on multiple levels, like strategic skills and performing skills etc. - and my performing skills are prioritized right now! :P

I play a really profitable limp-strategy out of the sb - it works super well!
And thanks for your view on the R-decision!

Today I was trying to hit a score in the 22 micro millions main. Wasn't my tourney tho. I wished I could share some interesting hands, but there were none #sad .
Best thing about the evening: Had a good time with my buddies.
Cashgame was kind of a roller-coaster session: First off I started with a heater, was card-dead and got it back together. Decisions were solid. Looking forward for the next week and month.

Very interested in the session today. Yesterday was a bit of a roller-coaster but I played fine I guess. One hand was a bit tricky, where I stacked off a fish a bit too light ... I guess this should be a fold, right?

Do you think 72 is a realistic calling and then even raising hand? Therefore the fish has to be very active, I guess ... Q2 - yep, you're right, I should add that.

1) Yes, I guess you're right - we don't have that many Qx ... but on the other hand V has QTs+ and KQo+ maybe ... do you think that is realistic?
2) What size would you prefer?

Here are my first hand-histories. Check them out!
Also my first session was going okayish so far. Focus level was good, but nothing really big happened. I'm excited to see what the weekend will has to offer.

This is new attempt to take my poker-jouney a bit more seriously. I'm new to this side and forum. Started the "from the ground up" course a few weeks ago. The last months I wasn't sure where I'm heading with my game and so I thought this blog/journal activity could be my next 30day-challenge. If I like the experience - maybe I continue doing it this way.
1) Post an interesting hand every playing-day (into the forum and the link into the journal).
2) No two days in a row without posting something into the journal (whether something about mindset, sessions, videos i watched, hands or other interesting stuff).
3) Have consistent updates on weekly/monthly poker-results.
1) Start on NL10 and we will see where this is heading.
2) Take your time to make decisions and don't do auto-click-c-game-bullsh*t.
3) Stay mindful about progressing towards a better poker player.
... my motiviation came from Henry Lister's blog (https://www.henrylister.com/) and I was writing a blog back then on poker-strategy. So this is my own, new "english" attempt - and I hope you will apologize if my english is not the finest.
I'm just a normal 23 years old guy from germany, who is playing this game over 7 years now and for like 3 years seriously. I would call me a semi-professional, because I'm playing like every day, but because Poker isn't my main-focus I wasn't able to make big steps towards the highest limits. I'm a student for social work with takes time as well and has a higher priority than poker. For more impressions of my life-journey you can check out my instagram: click here
Here you are seeing my set-up. If you have questions about it, feel free to ask them!
