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.

Nearly Ready for some Voluuuuume

I think that I will have watched all the videos I want to by the end of the month and will then set myself some realistic goals regarding playing volume. I'll begin March by testing out two tables at a time and stick with that for a while. I think the average is about 20 mins for a game on absolute so two tabling should yield around 6 games per hour and I'll try and do 60-100 a week. I'm also going to use a bit of advice I read and after each game finishes try and recite out loud the inbalances in villain's play and how I should have exploited him (whether I actually did that in the game or not). The goal for this is that eventually my adjustments become instinctive rather than thought out - as they are currently. I'll also try and motivate myself by targeting a certain monthly FAME status level - Gold I expect. Will post more on this nearer the time. These are just vague goals at the moment which I will refine in the next couple of weeks. I won't be posting much until then as I'm working hard at watching these videos and making notes. Hopefully all this work will pay off and my results in March will reflect it. GL all
