Mansion Weekly 1000$ Freeroll

5th of January 19:37 p.m. I finished playing Mansion Weekly 1000$ freeroll. There was 3000 entrants and 50 places paid. First hour I was doing well. After the first break I had 5k in chips and there was 891 players left. Everything went great. After 37 minutes I made a mistake. I had 8k in chips, the blinds were 300/600. I got 33 on the big blind. Someone raised to 2000. He was very bad player, raising with nothing all the time, so I called. The flop came 642. He bets 3000 and I thaught he was bluffing so I went all in. He called and showed pair of 6's. I was out of the tournament 271st. Everytime I play tournament I want to get in the 10%. So 3000/100*10=300 players. My place was 271st I am not in the money, but at least I did what I want. Maybe next time more luck ;)

FullTilt Poker deposit

5th of January 2008 04:03 a.m. I woke up an hour ago. Checked the e-mail and find out there was a letter from PokerStrategy.com telling me that I will receive my 50$ free soon. That's great news. Next thing what I have done today was, I looked at the FullTilt Poker. I am thinking of making the deposit there. Of course I would prefer to Play in PokerStars, but I am banned there, so I did a little research on the Internet and found out that 25% of all online poker players plays in PokerStars and the second place is FullTilt Poker with 16% or 17%. Another thing is how can I make deposit if I don't have a visa card. I found out something about PaySafeCard, so I wrote a letter them asking where could I get that card. It should be somewhere in city center. It would be great for me making the deposits over there, because I live not so far from the city center. Another thing what I did was, I was looking for games in FullTilt Poker. And I decided that the best game would be 2+0.25$ sit and go. Because my bankroll will be around 100$ so that's 50 buy-ins. That's it for today. Good luck every one! :)

First Post!

4th of January 2008 05:53 a.m. decided to start writing my blog. My name is Edvinas Gruzdas. I am 18 years old. I am Lithuanian, but for the last 4 years living in Ireland, Dublin. There is a funny story why did I decided to write this blog. Few hours ago I was sitting at the Blackjack table in The Jackpot Casino in the city center. In few minutes I lost 200 euros. That's of course not the first time I lose money, but after I lost it I felt really bad and I was thinking why I spend money on games like Roulette or Blackjack. You can't control these games, it's just luck. So I decided that I have to play some serious poker as I was doing it before. Few minutes
before I have registered in PokerStrategy.com for 50$ free in Mansion Poker. All you have to do
is to answer the quiz and you can choose a platform where you want to get your 50$. I should get this money in few days. So from now on I will be playing Poker and no more Roulette or Blackjack. On January my goals are:

1. Stop playing Roulette and Blackjack
2. To build some bankroll
3. To find the job
4. To pay the bills (forgot to say: I am out of money right now ;)

So wish me luck! ;)
