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.

Mistakes. Meh.

Just made a pretty horrible $20 mistake by overplaying a set in a spot where I'm almost never called by worse. I'm not sure what happened, I either just misread the board for no flush, my concentration was taken by a different hand and I autopilot stacked off or for some reason I discounted the back door flush. I can't really recall why I shoved so I think it's prob a case that I misread the board. So it must go down as a multi-tabling mistake.

They say that poker is a battle of mistakes. If you can make less mistakes in spots where your fellow players do then that's where your profit will come from. While I don't think I make many massive mistakes, this definitely qualified as one. Disappointed because the rest of the session went very well.

Lessons to be learned:
1/ Before sticking stack in double check the board!
2/ Use the auto sit out button if two or more hands develop
3/ Make less mistakes

... or BUM for short.
