18 3/1 Update
It's been a really long time since I've blogged and yesterday was my best score ever so what better time lol... I ended up getting 2nd in the carbon big ticket for just over 20k. I recently added a hud and have branched out alot more cash and I attribute some of my success to analyzing the game from different angles. It's really easy in this game to get complacent and I'm always striving to get ...

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 ...

1 The working man's schedule
Like a lot of people, I have a day job.

I am not a professional so it is not easy to convince her that its more than just of ...

5 Risking your personal life
Thanks for taking the time out to even look at this blog. I saw a thread earlier, and thought to myself... how crazy is this life of poker. Holding down a regular job, balancing your personal life is hard if you're thinking about or doing poker hours and hours for the day. I know I am missing out on a whole lot of socializing playing poker. But honestly its the risk i'm going to take. This ...

1 Getting back to the grind in 12 days !

I was here for a job training in electronics. That experience is the worst I ever had in my life. For the past 4 months I had to stop playing poker cause Pokerstars is closed in USA. I have played 3 tourneys on ...

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 ...

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 ...

1 New to pocket 5s. Here to learn everything.
Hey my name is Andrew, but I go by the name "big nem" on pokerstars. I am new to pocket fives, but I am here to be part of the community and try and learn/share as much knowledge as I can so I can get better at this game. 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 ...
