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.

Multitabling - the benefit of TableNinja

Around November time I purchased the AHK tool TableNinja for helping me to play Rush. At the time I wasn't putting in a lot of volume so I've only just realised it's full potential. I have improved my hands/hr from around 1000 to 1200. This may not seem like much but if I can start to beat this limit then an increase in (hourly) win rate of a fifth will prove to be significant in the long run. Highly recommended!

Played around 6500 hands so far this week so on course to hit my 10k target. It's been a week of two halves really, first half I was very rusty and also suffered from some bad variance; the last two sessions I've played less fancy (read better) and also benefited from some good variance. Overall then about half a buy-in down so still looks like I'm not quite there with my strategy yet. But I don't think I'm far off. Mainly because of hands like the following:

I hated life on the river here, I was convinced he'd rivered Queens full (with a club draw to explain calling down) but against unknown players once I've put in that much of my stack I'm never folding; if I've been trapped or sucked out on then whatever, cooler. If villain and I had been a lot deeper and he'd shoved here I might have considered a fold, so there are situations where I think his play is fine. But when I'm pot committed here it's foolish to say the least. Right, going to fire up some more tables for a bit and play a few more hands now. Will post a complete weekly update over the weekend and will also strive to do this from now on so that it rounds off everything nicely and gives me something to blog about. GL

Ouch, tilting now and time to quit :(
