hi guys  about to start my first live training session looking forward to it can not believe i have not made use of this crazy .

Massive progress this year and even more so thanks to felix schneiders aka XFLIXX a great player he has helped my game with his videos and blogs everything this guy does is awesome .

I have learned a lot from him have a look guys at felix he talks a lot of sense and has helped me so much more with his relaxed approach and i have taken a little of that and it has stopped me going on tilt well not as much anyway still a work in progress lol .

Trying to keep the learning up it is hard trying to combine both well it was at first but now i think i may have the right balance fingers crossed . I am  enjoying the learning process maybe not had big results yet lol . But they are coming put a touch of consistency to my game as well . 

I am down still overal as a player but that is turning it has for the best part of this year i am not a big grinder and my bankroll is not always in check but i am getting there trying to keep the discipline .

felix is right about keeping a time for when you play and keeping to that as best you can . Making sure you are rested , fed and watered . But when you think about it if you are  not happy mentally and physically how on earth can you make the best decisions at the table ? 

I will keep a very tight bankroll now untill the end of the year . Playing mostly sit and goes . I enjoy the great touranments at pokerstars and would love to play some of the bigger events . but only when the bankroll allows , I have not used my fpp very well this year . I think i will be using them for sats in future . I have picked up a school pass which is pretty cool using that for one of the wcoop free rolls .

I am guilty of not always using what is available to help my game at pokerstars but this year i have been using what is here on this awesome site and i would recomend even if you have been playing poker forever have a look because you can never stop learning at poker . My big aim for this year is to finsh the year in profit no matter how small and i am on course for that . 

Would love to play more cash as i have done pretty well but then lost what i have won with silly plays hopefully i can play some more in future with felix help i can see where i am going wrong. more  touranments would be great as i play pretty well in them these days . pretty happy with my game at moment just the tilt and the bankroll which for now is top of my agenda . Take care everyone and i hope you get lucky in the big one because everyones time is coming keep the faith .
