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.

First Big Cash of 2011

~$300 chop for second place in a $4 Rush on demand. Final table was terrible for me to be honest and I'm amazed I came out of it with such a big cash. The whole table was loose aggressive pretty much and I was totally card dead and had no re-shove fold equity a large percentage of the time. However just by sitting tight and waiting for the occasional spot to keep my stack alive I was able to climb a few spots when other players busted. When it got short handed I then stepped on the pedal and was able to get heads-up with stacks even. My opponent asked for a chop and I decided just to take it at 50/50. In retrospect I wonder if I should have played on as I think I had an edge, but he wasn't terrible and I was getting tired so it could have been the best decision in the end. So, 2011 starts on a good note. I hope it continues! :) GL
