Gordon's alive!! 10NL by Xmas
So a little background...
My name's Jon (FlashAhahhh on most sites), 30 year old dad of 2 with a full time job writing sql reportszzzZZZ!! I've been playing poker on and off for the last year, originally at the lowest stakes of 2NL then after an ok run I moved up to 5NL. It hasn't been going too well:
As you can see a very small sample as I struggle to find the time to play as much as I should, but I'm planning to change that. My aim is to play around 100k hands by the end of the year, roughly 5k a week. I know there are plenty of players on here that bang out twice that in a day no problem but I'll be happy if I make that target. I'll be focusing on the quality of the play rather than quantity, keeping table numbers down.
I'll be playing mostly fast fold poker, 2 to 4 tables, on Betfair (the sample above was on William Hill but after the recent rake changes I've decided to try another site). I'll mix it up with some regular speed games on Sky (to focus on observation skill with no HUD) and maybe Bet Victor (since I like the software and the rake).
On top of my poker goals I'm planning to get back to regular weight and fitness training, with the aim of finally shifting the fat I've accumulated from 10 years or so of too much booze and takeaways. Figure if I don't sort it now I'll soon find myself in the same position at 40 and it will be much harder to do.
Another thing, I have debt. I know most people do in some form or another. But mine has escalated for some time. I finally turned it around somewhat with a nice payout from my last job. That took a huge chunk off it, so now the aim is to keep it spiralling downwards and end the year with less of it than I have right now. Who knows, maybe if I work hard enough I'll pay it all off and win enough money from poker to buy a nice new car, or perhaps own my own house, here's dreaming...
Anyways that's enough for an intro, time to get playing again.
