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.

SNGs (more to follow!)

Update: Short vacation arrived just before I completed my post. Will follow shortly!

I've been playing $7 6-max SNGs for a while and studying a bit of ICM. Really been enjoying getting to grips with a format I have limited knowledge of, and I'm surprised at how much I've been keen to play - reminds me of the mid 'noughties' again.

My decision to choose the 6-max format comes from the ICM being about as easy as it comes outside of straight-forward chip equity. Coming from a cash game background I though it would be beneficial to start out simple and learn to play short-handed thoroughly before progressing to larger tournaments.

Anyway, to the point. I will shortly post my most recent 50 6-max SNG results and pick out a few hands and do a little stat analysis. I would like to improve the content of my blog, so I hope it will be interesting.

My initial goal in playing SNGs was to convert my pool of tournament $ into cash so that I have a decent bankroll to hit the Zoom tables again. However despite the hourly being lower, I've been enjoying the tournaments so much I am planning to continue after my tournament $s are gone. If I can play reasonably and get together a decent sample size perhaps I'll be able to add another game to the 'can beat' list.

Next post to follow over the weekend!
