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.

Poor Session

So it looks like my heater my have ended now, had one of those sessions where I seemed to be running into the top end of villains' ranges all of the time. Insane the number of times I was played back at post flop. To top it off I flopped the nut straight, managed to get the money in on the turn versus top two pair and lose to the four outer on the river. I then think I played around 1000 hands straight away without a break and was beginning to tilt; I made two or three particularly suspicious tilt-induced river calls which probably cost me the best part of a buy-in too. Disappointed I let it affect me in this way I'm usually pretty good but I was tired and so it was bound to be negative if things didn't go my way.

I have decided to do some more work on my game. I should easily get enough time to do this and still maintain the 10k hands per week. Specifically I'll be looking at improving my red line a little by 3-betting more often and also focussing on my blind play. I'm also going to be studying the recent Rush video content released on Cardrunners and Youtube (Citizenwind) closely. I feel that my post flop play (when I'm playing well) is pretty good. But I need to refine certain elements of my strategy. Just a few smallish leaks that should move my win rate up above 2 ptbb/100 for the first time.
