Not too much to write since my last update.

Poker is going pretty slow this month (haven't played alot because some friends from Germany came over last weekend). Was losing some, winning some. Not so satisfied but should be up slightly though. Just the std rollercoaster.

Did yesterday an interview with Vincent Wille (guy is probably teh best small stakes NL Texas Holdem Player worldwide and maintains a pretty nice blog while making a shitload of money.) Interview was mainly about what to do to become a 6pack and since I had a pretty decent one back in the days 2008 when I was without a job and with plenty of time to workout/diet I seemed like a good interview partner I assume. 
Everything else you can read on http://vinivici9586.wordpress.com/ if you are interested in the shit.

Made alot of party during the weekend but I'm seriously getting old which sucks. Seems like it is almost impossible for me these days to drink and go out massively 2days in a row which ends up in having a solid friday and a lame saturday where nothing is gonna work out at all. Have to seriously consider taking 1 day off if I want to go out multiple times on teh weekend... Whatever, you gonna learn early enough what I mean once you turn 26 ;)

On Monday I fly to Malta for 4 days in order to rent something baller. Hope it all works out but since I've got a pretty good real estate agent (if anyone is interested in moving to Malta, short or long term just get in touch with me and I will provide you with contacts which will make your life alot easier...) I'm not too worried. Will post updates and maybe some pictures when everything is [x] confirmed!



Today is the 10th of february where hopefully everything is getting better in case of onlinepoker and the rats dying a slow death and move their business from Poker Stars to MC Donalds. 
Everyone who plays Poker knows what this is supposed to mean but for the readers who are not playing for a living: Rats are people (mostly from Germany, Russia and Spain) who are buying in for the Minimum of chips at any texas Holdem NL tables (taking advantage of a so called "short stack" AKA "gay stack" strategy). Afterwards they are using a starting hand chart which is based on math playing a shitload of tables and doing nothing but folding or going ALL IN for 20BigBlinds. Once they reach 25BBs or more they leaving the table and sit down at a new one with their tiny 20BB stack.
Me and many other guys who are playing for a living hate these guys from the bottom of their hearts because these rats are abusing the current buy in structure. Unfortunately (for the rats) these structure will change today (rats can only play vs. other rats with 20BBs) and all the guys who like to play real poker will get their own tables. 
I can only speculate what this means for me but in general this change should reward the better players and the players who like to buy in with 100BBs and more. I count myself in both that categories so that I'm pretty convinced these changes are good for me personally but also for the futures of NL Holdem Cash Games at PokerStars. Thanks again Stars for pulling the trigger!
