Sky's the No Limit
I made a quick introduction on the other thread and explained I would be making a journey.So this is my journey's beginning.
I have been playing Poker for around 14 years on and off but never seriously,I have never entertained the idea of Rakeback and bonuses etc.I have always just deposited a worthwhile amount,run it up/Lost it and withdrawn.I would imagine I would be part of quite a few that have done that.Despite not always being in a position to play due to family committments financially the desire to play and learn has always been there. I adore the game and everything related to it.So when unable to play I have always been watching and reading and studying the game. At my highest I was playing $3/6 with my entire Bankroll spread across 3 tables.Needless to say I didn't last too long but it is an example of how bad I treated brm at times.I want to this time start at the bottom and do things properly,although I am comfortable within my game and Bankroll to be beating NL10 now as we stand, I am going to do things properly and start at NL4.
I have signed up to Sky Poker and hopefully according to live chat I am set up and tagged correctly.Despite it being an obvious choice for soft games I never had an account there so thats my choice.I will be playing NL4 untill I have beaten it comfortably over 25K hands.I will be playing the evening tournaments also.I am going to record all cashes from tournaments as well as an update on cash hands/winnings on a daily/bi daily basis. I am unsure as to how to that yet due to no HUDs but I think through PokerDominator I can record profits/loss etc in graph form.
So in short I will be starting properly tomorrow as it's late now in the UK,i have had a little play around for 20 minutes to familiarise myself with the software,made a cheeky buy in when a guy opened shove a flop of 34Q from the BB holding 88 and I'm sat with QQ.Hopefully I get him again tomorrow
I will be posting hands if I can,reading and studying and just hoping to learn all the time. I want to be at NL10 by Xmas and NL20 by April.I dont think Im being unrealistic with them time frames.
25k hands by Xmas day.
