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.

Frustrating day, but not a bad one...

Played tons of tourneys today, maybe 20-30. I didn't final table a single one, yet I finished 15-30 a huge percentage of the time - so much so that I think I actually broke even on the day. The frustrating thing was that I got to those positions so many times and then on the single flip I needed to final table I ran into a big hand, or I didn't win the race. Never mind, this is the nature of tournament play. Overall I'm pretty happy with my play. One thing I've noticed is that I seem to be falling behind the average stack somewhat once we get under 50 players. This might be because I was pretty card dead, or it might be that I'm not shoving widely enough from each position once I get short. It could also be down to my reshove weakness. I'm not afraid to get it in, but given a pfr % I find it hard to know which hands I should be reshoving for value and also which I should be adding as bluffs. I've never had a problem shoving any two cards to win the blinds but once someone has shown an interest I am very cautious about putting chips in. Oh well, more work to do. That is something that has never feared me, and I still think I'm better than 98% of players in these tourneys, so the money will come my way ;)
