First week # busted in one hour

Above - money chart of 1st october

So last week as i mentioned in previous post I had only two days for poker. And I lost 16 dollars, a good start huh? I started MT with 4 tables at 0.10 big blinds but after one hour i lost 6 dollars due to my bad playing with middle pairs so I've moved back to the smallest possible amount 0.02 $ BB, cause obviously I needed to shape my game and couldn't afford such big lost, i obviously were losing in that level too but with smaller amount and could slowly develop my game. Next day after new 4 hours of game i started to make progress (at least i thought so) in preflop, because in MT 4 tables i felt very comfortable with quickly seeing in what position i am and how I should play according to starting hands chart. So far I decided strictly to follow this char with no exception, at least for now. on the second day after the lunch i was in very good mood, cause i was feeling that i developed my discipline on poker and a good sense how to play and more improtant i started slowly to melt my loses so i was hoping to see a plus at the end of the day, so small were left to that and than boom i got busted againts complete idiot who called my all in with a flush draw againts my set. Tha put me on a tilt and I lost even more to him later. So i needed to finish cause couldnt play normaly anymore. But Im not upset sicne it was a good tun that showed a lot of my weak sides and I learned something, needs just to keep hard work and finnaly starting to on profit, cause otherway i simple will be bankrupt and left with no money to play so my poker career will end.

In bad news i did not do alot work in poker learning througth those two days, propably because i was really tried after 8 hours of playing. All what i did is soem reading on book "Ace on a river" (very boring and useless book, only 100 pages left so i hope to finish next week and write a review) one coaching sesions on pokerstrategy and lessons one NL begginers course at

oh and I recieve a silver status on a that means: 73 extra articles (excluding omaha and 7 stud which im not playing) and 380 extra videos (OMG) in which - 20 are for NL short stack strategy. I hope to remain silver status for the next two months and than hopefuly finish all learning materials and jump to a gold

So that was my first two days


On such heavily draw board i was stupid to believe that i have the strongest hand with a set. In other hand the oponent slowplayed very well :

Try to memorize much better starting hand chart (sometimes i still need to look)
develope After flop game on how to read a player
How to understand HUD and all this stats that elephant programs show on a player
Basicly to read player and how to recognise bluffs
TO measure amounts on after flop so i would not call to much what im doing now

for education to spend : 30 hours

What i want to do for my poker education:

to finish NL begginers course
to finish read and review a book "Ace on a river"
to read silver articles about Others, No-Limit Short & Mid Stack Strategy,
to watch videos on NL short stack strategy at basic, bronze and silver status (40 videos in total - 10 in basic. 18 in bronze and that left about 12 in silver ?)
to review all poker learning materials on popular internet spots 9youtube, wikipedia)
