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.

Break Even Day

I played tons today - as evidenced by my numerous posts - break even overall, won 3 buy-ins in Rush but lost it all in tourney buy-ins where I didn't cash a single time. I'll certainly admit I made mistakes in the tourneys but only a couple and even then when the stacks were shallow. I ran it all through SNGWiz and I played largely mistake free in the late stages of the tourneys so I'm still convinced that over time I should show a profit. I guess only time will tell, as my sample size is way too small currently. In the cash games I felt really good, I didn't lose any money to the red line in over 3000 hands so I must be improving... The rest of the money was just ABC value bet - bluff - fold when no good. One conscious thing I tried was to really raise a wide range when there was a $6.76 43/10 sort of player that limped preflop. It has paid off so far. Anyway I'll play lots more tomorrow and post my results here. GL
