Name: Adam (Bensy229) on partypoker
Age: 26, soon to be 27
Aim of Blog: To achieve poker greatness, greatness being a small and consistant profit and to continue having fun while doing it.
How to achieve my aim: Starting this blog will be verycathertic and one that will lead me to putting all my thoughts in writing to look back on and hopefully look back on with fondness at the fact I achieved my aim, continuing to listen to others through the forum and to make sure I stay in the game to stay up to date with strategy with good BRM, a schedule (which I have just created) and good discipline.
This is a new chapter in what is an eventful 3-4 years of online poker as a 15-25 Hours a week player, call that semi professional I don't know, I think you would all agree that the lows are way more painful than small wins in this game with uncontrollable variance at times, but why do we do it? Why do we put ourselves through crazy swings and consistant pressure to achieve that small edge. I think that there is still a competition element and a fun factor that will never change, for me both of these are still very much apparent, as I look to start again in my quest to achieve my aim. I would urge anyone that if the fun factor or competition goes, you SHOULD NOT play at all. I like boxing and I can draw comparision to boxing, if your fighting for titles money follows, if your fighting just for money you not going to get as much as you think you deserve. In a roundabout way, you need to ask yourself are you playing poker purely for money or do you want the joy of beating a large field. I am not an author or someone that writes blog entry regularly, but this is a helpful tool in order to get everything on the table.
My Start (24/04/17): I will be starting with a $500 roll and playing exculsively on Partypoker, I will be playing $5.50 as my max buy in tournament. I wll be 4 tabling max and I will be playing 3 days a week, 8 hours a day max. I will assess my BR monthly and go from there. I will be commited into blogging after every session maybe with a long rant or a successful day, whatever the day brings it will be documented and I hope that anyone that takes the time to read this can comment and give advice good and bad, both very much welcomed.
Thankyou all and I hope this is the start of my blog (Everything on the table)
