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 few games tonight

lost a buyin overall I think. Despite this, I'm pretty happy with the way I played, I generally kept the aggression up - value towned myself a couple of times but overall think that I bet where I had fold equity when bluffing or got good value from made hands. The players I ran into though were unfortunately fairly loose aggressive types except for one who I bet to death basically. I don't think there's alot of equity to be had from playing LAGs as this is the style best suited to HUSNGs. However, getting used to playing them is certainly something I need to address. Thankfully, they don't appear to yet outnumber the weaker players. Also, other than one player who just seemed to know exactly what I was doing - I was never getting run over. This is hugely important I think in these games. Make sure we don't give away chips to LAGs and pwn any weak players. Against the lags I am also trying to balance my ranges so that I'm not giving too much away. Much to be learned, but happy with my progress so far. GL.
