hemuliA 23-year-old guy from Finland traveling the world playing tennis. Besides tennis, I love to grind MTTs and SnG's on FTP and PokerStars.
This is my first post to the blog and I will start with a brief introduction of myself. Here we go! I am a young guy from Finland with 2 dreams in life: to become a tennis professional and/or become a poker professional (of course!).
But maybe more like a student who makes his money from playing poker, so he wont need to pay his rent and food by being somekind of guy who makes pizza for money.. But at this point, I am putting of course my tennis in front of poker. So I am not gonna skip anything because of poker and not gonna play tournaments in the night if training in the morning etc.. But this does not mean I wont play poker when I have the free time! I am actually trying to get a good bankroll to get to play higher games and make a decent money! And as a young guy, I still live with my parents so I wont need to cash out (sometimes only when I really need)! And of course I am travelling more than 25 weeks/a to play tennis tournaments so getting my own place is not the best time right now especially when almost the only money I am making is from poker (which could barely pay my food)
And my "poker career"
So I am not a professional poker player, I certainly think I am Anyway I am making little bit money here and there and sometimes losing money here and there! But in overall making some profits, my best years were back in 2009-2010 when everybody was playing poker and all the fishes were swimming in the tables! So basically my most profitable time were back then.. Now I am trying to build my bankroll again with what was left from 2010. I had few hard years mentally back then when I was facing some injury's and couldn't play tennis so I was doing lot of others things instead, and that included spending my bankroll I was almost 45k up from all the sites I was playing most of that was from 6max 9man and 45man.. And my first downswing hit me and I lost around 20k included few 1k hyper games when I was tilting and spent almost the rest in parties and stuff like that... But then 1.5 years later I played for the first time few games and in my first sng my AA got cracked. I was just thinking that how did I play this game for so long, and took a half year more or less break from poker.. But then slowly I started to enjoy a bit few games a week etc. In the start I had in the bankroll left almost 100d and at one point I had 30d left and went with all that to play one 30d sng and came 2nd I think with all the things I have done to almost go broke, poker god is watching me and he want's me to continue this game... I once promised myself that I will never make a deposit after I got the free money (Thank you BRM) but can't say that for sure, I think I am hooked up with this game.. Now I am sitting with little bit over 2,3k in my bankroll so hopefully that decision is not coming soon=never! I have never won anything really big in tournaments, that is one of my dreams also to win a five figure! And as a person I am more like a gambler guy then always trying to get the +EV but of course +EV is and always will be the goal... Or that's what I want it to be
So this was my first post I will try to keep this blog updated with some pictures, I will for sure post poker stuff and all the gambling I am doing! ( I have to gamble about almost everything)
