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.

Good Session

Just finished a good session and so this week it looks like I'm making good progress. If only if I hadn't spaz mis-clicked yesterday I could be over $100 in profit... :(
I have a $30 rake back payment due as well so all looks like it's moving along nicely so far in my quest to beat this limit.

I have just altered my hot keys slightly so that I can keyboard shortcut some more useful bet sizes. I now have 1/3 pot, 1/2 pot, 2/3 pot (default), pot and 1.5 x pot. Hopefully with some more experience I can learn to use the different sizes well and maximise EV.

I also played a couple of pots with cardrunners pro Verneer (TheXC on Full Tilt) as he was at the tables grinding for his $200 to $10k challenge. Nothing much interesting, my heart started racing in a blind vs blind situation when I c-bet 78s on a 367r out of position - there was quite a long pause and I was anticipating having to face a raise from a good player with top pair but he folded. Phew.

Happy with my game currently apart from a couple of dumb mistakes I think I'm playing as well as I have ever done. Back to the grind!
