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 ...

18 $100 to 10k challenge. Changing things up and getting back on track
No doubt this game can be trying. The mental aspect of poker is huge and a side of the game that is often overlooked, especially at the lower limits. Inevitably I have wandered off course. The heads up grind has gotten to me slightly and while i have reduced the number of games played recently I have also dabbled in a number of mtts that originally were not in my plans. I took a small shot ...

10 Jackpot to your DREAMS
Hello P5s world. I am on a high of late on these $1-2.50 jackpots over at FT. I was put on to these at the start of the year after my Boy MP always talked about playing these, but I just saw them as luck and just no skill needed. Oh was I wrong *cover face* I started playing them at the end of March and by middle May, I hit my first serious or serious to me jackpot of $250. Which first would ...

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 ...

11 With every upswing, there is the downswing
I started my bankroll challenge with 40 dollars, ran it up to 140 in a matter of only a few thousand hands playing cash. However, since then I have hit a downswing and am back down to 100 dollars. MY bb/100 is still at 7.57, which if I can sustain I would be very happy with. The past few hands in my most recent session had me splitting a 10 dollar pot after a guy hit a 1 percent hand on the ...

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 ...

2 Fortune favors the bold.... or is the mother of stupidity
Well, Decided to challenge myself. Gonna see if I can run $30 into $1,000 by playing whatever I feel like without paying particular attention to bankroll or any other things that make general sense. I will donk it if I have to :) If I get that far, I will post where I'm at 10 games from here. First game is: $30 NL Turbo 9-handed. Yup, 100% of my bankroll. GL GL BingoBoy76
