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.

5/7 days Rush week completed so far...

Should earn the $50 reward on Sunday which is very nice, ship the free two buy-ins. I'm aware that the recent rake change has cut my rakeback pretty significantly; hopefully they plan to give out more bonuses as some sort of compensation.

I just went back and looked at some of my old archives from the middle of last year. I think I was six tabling double or nothing tournaments back then. How completely and utterly boring that must have been! Then I discovered HUSNG.com and playing heads up tournaments leading up to Christmas last year led to a huge improvement in my post flop hand reading skills. This year though was the year I took a huge step forward, and I have Rush poker to thank for it all. What a brilliant invention, and for me and probably many others it has changed online poker for good. I really cannot believe why Stars didn't take up the idea when it was offered to them. I hope that other sites adopt this format because FT could use it's monopoly to relentlessly squeeze more money out of it's clients until it becomes questionably profitable. Until then and while it's still super juicy, I'm loving every hand (and so is the bankroll)!
