UhOhNutFlush: What's up y'all? My name ia Jason and I've loved poker since the day I layed my eyes on the game... guess you can say it was love at first "site"(which was pokerstars when it was legal in the US of A). Little corny joke I kno but I'm no good at this introduction stuff. So... I've been playing poker for a couple years, mainly NLHE but I've also dabbled in PLO and 7 card stud. I always just picked things up here n there but recently I found some extra time on my hands and decided that I stop playing around with poker and start playing poker! I'm looking to hone my current skills as well as add an abundance of knowledge and tools to really improve all areas of my game. I play on bovada(no name obviously bc their
tables anonymous) and Lock poker both of which Im not to fond of but it could just be my playing im not too fond of? I prefer a live table to online but im sure both areas need great and constant improving...So I'm going to leave it on that note, say im glad to be here and cant wait to improve my game ten fold bc lord knows it needs it lol


Haha welcome to the site! Do you play many hands a month?
So you live in America! Their can't be many legal sites there? I'm not sure how it all works over there TBH.

If your thinking about doing a serious grind, how about making a journey for everyone to follow! Also don't forget to take advantage of the rake back deals and rake races! It really helps your bankroll at the end of the month!!

Good luck!

Hey everyone,

My name is Blair, I am from Sweden. I am 28 years old, and learned to play poker 2 months ago. For the past month I played on Pokerstars, started with SnG, and now I've shifted to cash games (micro stakes). But I mostly enjoy playing HU, which I always played as a break from my SnG.

I am very new to all of this, but I have a job I do from home, so I can play every time I get a break. I am in the spot where I think every beginner is, learn - learn - play - get frustrated - go back to learning - play again - get a bit less frustrated - learn some more.

This is it, that's the story of Blair!

Hey, what's up?
I am tunatotoso (if you see me on pokerstars, feel free to tag me as a fish lol) and I am from Brazil. I started jan/2014 playing $0,25c sngs. Nowadays, I play nl5 zoom and $1,50 45man turbos. I am very nitpicky, very conservative with bankroll management. I really enjoy doing mtt sessions, but due to the lack of time, it hasn't been an option lately. I hope to learn a lot and teach the little I know, why not?
I have a problem with tilting, but not when bad cards rolls off, because you can't control the board. So I really don't mind having my aces cracked in all pre-flop, for instance, if I feel like I made the right decision. I tilt when I make bad decisions, and therefore I make bad decisions when I tilt, lol.
I'm sorry if there were any mistakes in my english, I'm here to improve it aswell.

See y'all! Go Go Grinding!

Hey everyone!

So I just wrote a lengthy introduction for my first Poker Journey - but I've just realised I can't post it because I haven't made a single post yet. Yes, I've basically been stalking everyone. In a nice way.

So hello! My name is Toni. I'm 28. I'm from the UK and I'm really pumped about poker. Played my first ever hand in February 2014 at my mates house. Spent a few months learning the basics. Started tracking in July. Playing FR 5NL at the moment on Stars and BetVictor. Hoping to jump to 10NL before Christmas.

I have a lovely girlfriend who supports my decision to give this poker thing a good crack, which is really nice. It took a lot of difficult conversations where I was basically trying to explain EV to her - but I think she gets it now. My Mum used to be all like, "IT'S JUS GAMBALING TONI!!" (she's Spanish) - but I've even managed to get her on side somewhat, so that makes the whole venture a lot easier.

Looking forward to joining this community. All the stalking I've done so far leads me to believe that there's a whole bunch of nice, non-bickering people on here, so yeah, can't wait to get stuck in.

See you all around Smile

Hi everyone,
I'm Nils, i'm 23 years old. I've been playing poker for 6 years now but only as a hobby. There was one time a few years back where I was able to make a few grand in the summer. I took a big part of it to go on a vacation with my girlfriend and after that I kinda stopped winning at poker.
My goal now is to be a winning player preferrable at 25NL or higher and maybe one day to play full time poker. I'm currently playing at 25NL Zoom and 10NL Zoom because I really love this game type.

Hi I'm Chris.

I'm quite new to Poker and am trying to learn no limit holdem over at 888poker. I played a few tournaments and cash games but not much a couple of months ago but nothing since then. I want to become good enough to grind micro stake cash games to make a nice side income. I think it'll take me a long time but I want to learn! Going to start working through the coaching videos on here.

Hey Nils, welcome to the site mate, hopefully we can turn you into a sick crusher over the coming months!


Hey Chris, where you from buddy? The poker coaching videos are a great resource and don't forgot to post hands in the poker strategy section too. If either of you have any questions or would like any hands reviewed, feel free to post and I and others will do our best to reply!

Good luck at the tables!

I've grinded my way from nl2 to nl25 for a decent bankroll, but since mentioned earlier, never really took poker seriously and was pretty much playing around, cashing out for some silly expenses. I've always found it quite exciting to be able to grind from bottom up, hence why I have decided to give it a little more thought and take it more seriously, but not to the point that it will take over my life, since I have a good FT job and some other life commitments. It is still great to have something else on the side that can be awarding and enjoyable Smile

Hey everyone! My first post.

My name is Gabriel. I'm brazilian (I'm so sorry about my english haha). 31 years old.

Play poker (NLH) since july 2013. Started playing on Pokerstar and Full tilt, and still have a little bank there.
I want to find a better room because I'm currently playing at a microgaming room that doesn't have rakeback (any help?).
I tried STT, MTT, but last month started playing cash (micro limits - NL2/ NL4 - because my money worth less than yours... haha) and it seems I will keep in that game.

What I want here is to learn a lot about cash games (reads, ranges, bet sizes, math...).
