Snabben73's way to the top
My pokernick is Snabben73 and I'm a 32 year old financial analyst from Stockholm. I´ve been asked to write about my pokerplaying here at Pokercasinoguide. I've been playing cards since I started walking and poker more seriously since 2001. I play Texas Holdem NL, both cash and tournaments, on the internet and live but here I will mainly write about Texas Holdem NL, SNG and MTT played on the internet.
Since the beginning of 2005 I call myself semi-pro, meaning that I still have a job, but playing/reading/studying poker takes up most of my spare time and poker playing has been a significant income source to me for one and a half years. I use different strategies when playing SNG and MTT. I tend to play much more agressively when playing SNG's and maybe it's because of that I'm much more successful in SNG's than in MTT's? I've read and been told to play more agressively in MTT's than in SNG's, but everytime I try I lose...
The main reason for me writing here is to develop my game. I like to analyse my game and sometimes I think about and analyse a hand over and over again, thinking about what I could have done differently, what the opponent was thinking, was my raise signaling what I wanted etc. etc. I hope that you players out there can help me to develop my game and hopefully you too will learn something on the way.
I will start with a $ 2000 bank roll at www.interpoker.com and play tourneys (SNG and MTT) with maximum buy-in of $50. I will continuously move money to different sites to get bonuses. It would be fun if you popped by to say hi if you see me at the tables.
I will post interesting hands and it would be fantastic if you players out there could come up with comments, critisism, strategies or whatever.
Stay cool, play pool.
