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.

A Reminder of Microstakes Philosophy

Just watched an excellent video over at Cardrunners by a player called Verneer who is undertaking a $200 - $10000 challenge this year and is beginning by playing micro-stakes Rush. Further to the comments I made in the last post about my play being far too fancy for these limits, I was given good solid evidence that a nitty pre AND post flop style can be very succesful down here. This is a player who won at stakes much higher than this and he is advocating a very tight hit or miss style of post flop poker with evidence (50K hands) that it works. So, I will take a leaf out of his book; learn some patience and turn down the aggression a tad. Bet when likely to be favourite and let villains call too lightly and bluff too widely. Will post some results over the weekend. GL!
