Holla guys

It's been a while that I blogged, that's because it's been very busy. There are holidays now in Belgium for 2 weeks, and the weather is incredible so it's definately gonna be the best holidays ever! I'm going to centerparcks, it's kinda a holiday village, with a couple of my best friends. gonne be cool to, and planning to prank them all. 

Last few days have been ultrasick. My days were basically divided in drinking/sleeping/working/eating. Right now I have the worst hangover I ever had :(

The reason I don't have a lot of time is because I've got a funny sidebet with a friend of mine. We both deposited 50€ on a pokersite about a month ago, but it had to be a site we deposited before so we don't get a poker bonus and I picked pokerstars. Rakeback is allowed. We bet even money, and we're gonna look who's got the most money in august. The winner gets 50% of the other one's money, so I'm grinding like hell. For bankrollmanagement I use the following rules:
  • HU cashgame: Always buy in 50BB-75BB, and only on limits I have 10 full BI's for. Only 2tabling.
  • 6man cashgame: 50-75BB, 10 full BI bankroll, preferably 2-4tabling
  • SNG: only normal 9mans for keeping the variance down. need 10 buyins.
  • Tourneys: a tournament in a while is okay, not really bankrollmanagement needed, but of course I shouldn't take unnecessary risks.

The first few days I 10tabled the normal 2$ 9 mans. Ran really well and ran my bankroll up to 340$. Took a hit in a 15$ tourney, managed to have a decent cash of 450$ for total BR of around 720. Decided to play some 5$ sngs. few coolers, so went back to 630$. 4 tablet 50NL HU against a fish and won 340. More grinding, and at 1850$ now. Had a lot of coolers recently too.

Gonna include some interesting situations for you guys.

Preflop: Hero is BB with A, A

Any specific pranks in mind?

@Alpha: a few months ago 2 of my friends had this sick hangovers, one of them by drinking tequila, other one from malibu. So now they're disgusted by the smell, the flavour, even to see a bottle of it is enough to make their stomachs turn around :D I've bought a bottle of each, just gonna put it in their drinks.
And of course some other small pranks I'll come up with

great post, greez to Belgium ;-)

CPH zei

I disagree with 50-75BB on a HU cash game. And 10 full is kinda pushing it. Do you know about Risk of Ruin? I'm not discrediting whether or not you are a solid player, but it is important to have 20, imo
