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.

some cash...

well i finally sat in to some cash games tonight for the first time in ages. I decided from the start i was going to play crazy. I was sat on the 2c/5c tables with a 10 dollar stack. Poker talk: I have 200bb stack so i have great implied odds. Novice talk: I stand to win alot of chips if I hit a big hand so I'm going to play alot of hands. Right from the outset I was raising a ton of hands, I was varying the amount I was raising and I was trying never to do the same thing on the flop. In other words I was trying to convince the rest of the table I was a complete idiot. And before long most of the players were playing with me - which was awesome as this is exactly what I wanted. While I was doing a load of crazy things let me make one thing clear - I was NEVER risking more than I should. I was merely making a few small neg EV plays in order to get people to pay me when I hit. I was lucky too, I hit a few hands and due to my image I was paid every time. bankroll = 106. I must go but I'll try and find a hand or two to show. I played over 40% of hands with a sick aggro rating. It was fun!!
