With the arrival of NJ Pokerstars in 2016 , and hopefully constructive legislature in PA and CA, I think this year we can expect to see some rebirth in the USA for the game we love. A lot of times on this site I see people pointing at the sites , companies and saying... what they can do better or what should be done... But besides playing , how many of us have actually done anything to promote or ...

While starting hand charts may be a good thing for the beginner/novice in my personal ...

My dream is to become a successful poker player, and eventually to quit ...

1 The Premium Pair Predicament
A Quick Introduction Recently I have begun my attempt to return to the online tables successfully as a grinder. Sticking with an initial $50 bankroll and playing $2NL full ring, I am going to attempt to slowly replace my outside income with poker over the coming years.

1 From Losing Player to Winning Player

Either way after a couple years of playing online almost daily, I am a losing player in spite of giving it my best shot. I have been using Poker Tracker (collecting hand history, looking at charts, stats, leak tracker) to try and identify my leaks and even found a ...
