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 Backseat Hobby

So little time to play lately. I had a few hands tonight, just because I wanted to play but I was so tired I made a stupid call with a straight when someone overbet shoved 10000000000000000000000000000 times pot with the obvious full house. I didn't even think about the awful risk - reward ratio, I just called "cos I got a pwetty straight".

Until I get more time to play (to make myself game sharp again) and until I don't feel so damn tired all of the time I might just cash out. And leave myself a few pennies to play with. It's just life isn't giving me much time to play poker any more, and without that constant grind I just get too rusty. My age probably affects it too; my mind needs to play often to keep my decision making sharp. Unfortunately I cannot do that currently and so I think I'm likely presently a losing player. So it's not worth the money investment and I'm better off spending my $1500 on something else.

I'll sleep on it though. I think that learning to drive is stressing me out because I'm approaching my test and doing 3hrs per day practise on top of my job. As soon as that weight is off my shoulders I may be able to give poker more time again.

But whatever, it's a pretty meagre message I'm giving out tonight. Apologies for that, and hopefully I'll be more positive in my next post. GL
