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.

Been a while, huh?

I've been pretty busy with work and things and to be honest I've hardly played a hand in 2 - 3 months.

My training is going to be worth much more value in the long run than earning a few dollars per hour at poker so unfortunately the game is going to be on the back burner for the foreseeable future.

Overall my life is well back on track after my work frustrations at the start of last year and the brief turmoil of being unemployed. It's great being a driver and being in a role where I have a chance of progression and where I'm undertaking training that will put me into a different league of earnings.

And what about poker? Well I've started to get a little bit of an itch to play again. I think I had a bit of burn out for a while after playing nearly a million hands in a couple of years. I quite fancy playing a bit of tournament poker for fun in the remote chance of a big pay day, because the grind of cash games (not to mention the time effort required) is still a bit of a turn off at the moment.

I'll probably be looking at Full Tilt's Rush tournaments so that I can get in more volume if I do play. And if I do I'll be sure to post all about it here.

It would be a shame for my history to fade away; for the ups and downs and the rants and raves to disappear; for the booms and busts to become another dead thread at the back of a google search. So I will try to keep my blog going, even if my posts are only intermittent.

Until then, good luck at the tables!
