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.

10k hands for week done... More break-even-ness

Small win for the week but not good enough to be honest. It's good to get to my hand target as I know I won't likely get a chance to put in any volume on Saturday so I won't feel under pressure to get there tomorrow night. I can just play as many hands as I feel like - probably around 2k or something like that.

Leak Fixing
Now, I'm happy with much of my play but there is an area that I need to improve on and I think it will have a fairly large baring on my profitability. For the last 20k hands or so I've had a fixed preflop range from each position. I'm not sure why as I was much more dynamic at 10NL... I guess I just wanted to keep it simple while I was settling in. While I will likely not change much in the blinds or early positions I think that having too static a range in the CO and button is a mistake. I am raising trash from the cut off despite there being loose 3-bettors behind - which is costing me money. There is good evidence in my database that this is true as those two positions should be my biggest winners but are not. I will focus on this part of my play for the next few weeks, and I think that my winrate depends on me succeeding.

One of the top micro/small stakes Rush players citizenwind has just published a video series to youtube that looks good. I'll look to see what he is doing differently and adjust my game accordingly. GL all!
