Hi everyone,

So new to Pokerstars, but certainly not new to poker or online poker for that matter. Been playing poker for about 6-7 years now and love it for the fact that it both challenges you mentally and also physically, both live and online, although online is a little bit easier to stay comfortable during those long cash game sessions.

My goals for 2013 will be to turn my starting bankroll of $150.00, which is not very much as I am used to playing 200NL, into at least $2,000.00. So this is going to be a challenge as I am going to have to grind out the micro-stakes cash tables early in the year to build a deeper bankroll. I work a full-time job and usually only play 2 cash tables at once, making it easier to take solid notes on players and mainly due to the fact that my laptop's screen makes it difficult to 4+ tables. Hand quantity may be down, but certainly not hand quality.

I wish everyone the best of luck with their personal goals and please check back for updates or read my blogs as I will post updates regularly there as well.

Happy fishing!

Progress on Day 1, today, started out really bad as I decided to play a bunch of low stake Sit and Go's and lets just say after losing about $40 I decided to stop playing those. They are certainly not my forte and obviously need to read more into them on PSO and other players blogs.

Anyways, after a well needed nap to clear my head I decided to hit the cash tables and I managed to turn the day around. Just over 4,200 hands of 10NL full ring, I managed to make a solid profit at a win rate of 21.75 BB/100, small sample of my play but certainly heading in the right direction.

Here is a direct link to the graph for today's session (didn't want to resize it.):

For graphs I suggest doing what I do in my thread, you use both img and url tag so that you have a preview and clicking it opens the full size image.

like this (click the image):



You click the insert image icon, paste the link.
Then you highlight the whole text and click on the insert link, paste the link.


EDIT:
Almost forgetting, sick looking graph mate! Nice start!
