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.

Some hyper-turbo fun

I have some tournament $ I'd like to try and transfer into cash to boost my bankroll, so I've been hitting the 6-max hyper turbos at the $7 limit (this gives me plenty of buy-ins to allow for some variance).

So far my decision making has been reasonable, though I haven't run very well and only cashed once so far.

It's basically a game of ICM, and I'm not sure there's any profit in it - but if I come out close to break-even then I'll be pleased.

It's quite nice to be able to burn through a few tournaments in an evening, so I may investigate if these games can be beaten. If I find that they can be, and if I can build a degree of competence, then I could potentially multi-table... But we'll see.

If you have any experience with these, let me know!
