Hello all, welcome to my online poker blog.

I've been playing on and off for a decade after being introduced by a friend.

I played regularly for a few years during the poker boom and had a decent record at the micros, particularly Rush and Zoom No Limit Hold'em games (here's one of my graphs).

Around 2012 I began a new career which involved immersing myself completely in study in my spare time, so I had little to no time for poker. However recently this burden has eased and so I have been gradually dipping back in.

I'm an amateur player who still hopes to some day beat the rake.

A little research

Hi, every time I have a bad session I like to concentrate on improving part of my game. After I spewed that river bet last week, I decided I needed to do some study. Today I've done some of the most important work I think I've done yet. The river is obv a critical street of play and I've been playing about with some EV equations and things with the goal of knowing what my strategy should be once I get there. Why is it so critical? - well this is the biggest street where the largest bets go in. So playing it well is crucial for profitability. And like I asserted in an earlier post there's no reason why we can't master this street since the draw element is removed. Anyway I've got more things to do yet which means I prob won't play until maybe Friday. When I do I hope to be much clearer on a game plan once I've reached that final street. Hmmm... whether to share that info on here? Well I guess I can discuss a couple of principles that I've discovered but I'll leave the maths out.
