4 Moving forward with 2015 while reflecting on 2014
Since 2011, I really had not played much. Sure, I had dabbled here and there a bit on Merge and WPN. But not a ton. In June of this year i took a job working normal hours. 7 am-3pm M-F. I decided that because of these hours, I would start playing poker a bit more regularly. Around this time, I had put a little $ together that i was going to deposit for a small roll on merge. But they had given me ...

3 2014 Poker Year in Review > Blog Update > 2015 goals/expectations
2014 was a wacky year for me, poker wise of course. I started out the year having to go back to my old play$ games/leagues after busting my entire $400 roll that I built off freerolls in two nights because I disobeyed bankroll management, tilted like crazy, ran like shit, and couldn't keep my ego in check. I played stakes and games I never should have been in, and paid the ultimate price. Rather ...

1 Goals for 2015
2014 was by far the roughest year of my life. In the beginning of the year, I was attending school full time and playing on carbon to make money for myself. Three weeks after my biggest score ($6,500) my father passed away of a heart attack leaving my twin brother and me to fend for ourselves financially. My father's passing greatly affected my play. I became complacent with my game, playing ...

14 $100 to 10k challenge.
I want to start by thanking the people who commented on my previous post. I also want to thank Dara O'kearney for his kind tweet. That brings me to two important points. Firstly, I better actually read my blog before I post it. I began this thinking not many people would read it; its purpose was solely to track my progress and keep me focused on my goal. Thus, numerous spelling mistakes were ...

1 Experimental MTT Strategy
So, I am realllllly new to P5's and it seems a really good place to be. Definitely one of the smallest fish in a big pond and certainly aware of my poker limitations in comparison to the vast majority of the guys on this website. I started playing poker about 5 years ago at university and got engrossed early on. I read and learned a lot from my failings and from others around me too. I then took ...

93 2014 Year in Review
I haven't blogged since last year's relatively early exit from the WSOP Seniors event. Not much else happened poker-wise in 2013. I played a NLH Cash game, along with my older brother, at Parx Casino in Philly. Both of us managed to lose our entire $150 Buy-Ins without winning a hand. I lost my bankroll on a single hand when my Pocket Queens were cracked by a 75o straight. This year was a bit ...

Lets start from the beginning. What is a bad beat — to put it simple, a bad beat is when you put your chips in as a massive favorite and end up seeing the pot pushed in the other direction.

I don't have a job and I have very little to invest in poker, although my living expenses aren't an issue (at the moment). This provides me with the 2 most important things ...
