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.

3 games tonight

2/1 to the good. First and third players were usual crazy types and second player decent winner over good sample size - so that was quite an interesting battle. I thought he was a little too passive, he didn't c-bet an awful lot or even stab in limped pots but maybe he had me as a calling station, I don't know lol. One thing he did do well though was reraise my 'full of shit' stabs pretty often - maybe that's his style, looking for the airball plays and making reverse moves. Unfortunately the game didn't last long enough for me to start adjusting and doing this with made hands as well so that my ranges were balanced. Nevermind, wrote plenty of notes so hopefully if we play him again we can adapt better. I was also card dead which is a bit of a bummer if I can't win by betting at the dry boards either. The other players obv did some pretty crazy stuff but I managed to get the money in pretty good several times and fortunately I won.
I really think that my game has improved the most recently in the second level thinking box. That is, I've been making good decisions based on board texture and what I think villain's range is. However, as the second game showed I'm still really short when it comes to what he thinks I might have. Second villain either sensed I prob didn't have alot on those boards that he reraised on or he had a hand good enough to do this with. I don't think I'm terrible at this, I'll often play a bluffy looking line with a good made hand if I think his range might look me up and I'm definitely often thinking about balance but I def think this needs the most improvement. Hopefully though through experience this will become clearer to me. Anyway, ramble done. GL all
