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.

In recent posts I have talked about Verneer's quest for $200 to $10000. He is currently experiencing a downswong and the recent posts are hilarious. Check the thread out and show your support, he's a big micro/small stakes winner who gives a lot of free advice and knowledge out. A good man who deserves to run good again!!


  1. have you tried the multi-entry mtt's on FT yet?

    The regs seem to be going crazy over it - it's obviously different to rebuy/addons etc, but I can't figure out if it's good or bad...


  2. Haven't looked into them, I'll take a look over the weekend. How does it work?!

  3. you can enter the same tournament 4 times, and so multitable it. You won't be put at the same table as yourself, and when the tables are down to so few that this isn't possible, they merge your stacks.

    A load of discussion on 2p2 has shown it to be generally -ev, but that hasn't stopped loads of people going mad over it. Especially since it's double guarantee week on right now.

    Bwop had a good post about it (http://bwop.blogspot.com/2011/01/im-not-fan-of-multiples-and-im-not.html), and she pretty much laid into FT for being greedy rake-grabbing bastards, but we all knew that anyway (rush, anyone?)
