Abz’ Road to Mid stakes – No bottling it this time.
•Edited 4 years ago
Yo guys. Some of you may know me from before, some of you don’t, however, thought id start a new a journey to give me a little bit of motivation and I see this is a very new start.
If anyone wants to read my old journey thread, that is here.
I want to keep that in this journey so i can refer back to it anyways.
A little bit about me.
So anyways im Abz, I’m 26 and I’m a pretty big Derby County fan.
Last year I was a season ticket holder...
...but i decided i was going abroad to work as a Ticket Seller in Magaluf. Living the dream haha. Working on beaches, by the pools, walking the streets and the living a bit of a party lifestyle at night was awesome.
I also got talked into having this awful tattoo.
All fun and games! Haha. There is a story behind it. Probably not the best thing to be posting on this forum, but if you wana know, you can ask :).
Unfortunately all the drinking and other shenanigans caught up with me and had to cut my trip short and get myself home.
I was previously staked before by the legends that are PokerVIP. Had a lovely little stable before and hopefully it all kicks off again in the right direction. Met some brilliant poker players and most importantly brilliant people. The experience was awesome and the aim and idea for me is to apply for the staking again. At the minute im just getting set up with HM2, reading, watching videos and anything else that can help, just to refresh my mind of the game. “Got the itch” i suppose they say.
Hobbies and interests
Football – I used to be pretty decent, i suppose i turned 18, found alcohol, women and injuries and my football just went downhill from there. Cant wait to start playing again, but now due another operation due to rupturing my anterior cruciate ligament, TWICE! Not good.
Pool – I play a half decent game of pool. Seven balled my granddad here with just the one visit. Have a few, but not loads of break and dishes/runs to my name.
Poker – Obviously
Posting bollocks on Facebook – James Ablott if you wana see the shite i post.
Going out – Cant beat a good night out with ya mates.
Short Term Goals
Move PC to more comfortable position – Yeah, havent really got a proper arrangement with seating, and i like to be comfortable. Nothing worse than playing poker for long hours (ready to bite Jon) and being uncomfortable.
Deposit – Keri sorted me out today with all the set up, so im ready to make a deposit to get playing. This is likely to be in the next week or so.
Hands – Blast out 10-20k hands so i have a decent graph to apply for the staking.
Apply – Then obviously apply and see what the boys have to say about my game.
Help Others - If i feel i can help anyone in any way, then I’m more than happy to, makes me feel good helping others and can only help me in the long run.
Long Term Goals
Improve – I want to improve, i think last time i bottled a lot of it by posting chosen hands, we all have hands we fuck up on and i need to start posting them. Gota keep myself interested too, playing, reading and watching to stay above the competition.
Mid Stakes? – Everyone wants to be the worlds best, lets start with a realistic long term target and see if we can reach mid stakes. I cant put a time zone on it yet because i have no idea where ill be next week, never mind 6 months down the line.
Enjoy the experience
Another thing i need to sort out is my screen name. Im open to suggestions. So anything you can pick out of my journey that you think would suit an original username please let me know below. If i really like one then i’ll have it. But if i’m not keen don’t take offence, I may end up picking my own anyways .
