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.

FTP not finished just yet?

In a credible news report from the LA Times it looks like European investors are set to pay back US players (who are collectively owed around US $150m) in return for a majority stake in Pocket Kings, the Irish parent company of Full Tilt poker.

If this all goes through, and somehow they are able to settle the various legal issues that still surround the company and get the site back up again it would be an amazing result for a business that many thought had come to it's end.

The future of online poker is uncertain and in recent months the news has been mostly bad. For once, perhaps a story that will buck that trend. Perhaps I was too hasty to write off my money and perhaps I will be playing Rush again sooner than I thought. GL
