My online poker story

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Here is how I got more involved into online poker.

So after doing terribly in school my freshman year, the University decided I could go back, but they would no longer be paying for me. My parents don’t exactly make a ton of money, so they aren’t paying for me to go back. And with that, I have been forced into the life of a proffessional poker player.

I had quit my job back in April as I was sick of the long drive from school to home just to go to the job, and I could make more playing poker anyway. It was a really really great job for a kid my age. I was an assistant manager and projectionist at a small movie theatre.

Basically the other manager and I played chess and backgammon in the office, talked about whatever, listened to Benfica soccer matches on the radio, and got change for the employees out on the floor every once in a while. Oh well, enough reminiscing about my old job, this is a poker blog. This will be my introduction, the first results oriented post will be next. Let’s discuss the strengths and weaknesses in my game.

Strengths: Proficient at all games. Absolutely fearless. I think big. I have developed a pretty darn good tolerance for bad beats. And I know how to get good deals like the pokerstars marketing code 2015. Pokerstars is my favorite room, I also play a bit at Full Tilt and Carbon Poker. But pokerstars has incomparable traffic and game choices, so I almost always play there unless I am drunk.

Weaknesses: I’m too loose at full tables. I’m too aggressive at full tables. I am the laziest pro you will ever speak to. If I put in 5 hours in a day, that is above average. The number of hours I play each day is directly related to how many full house re-runs are on TV. Once playoff baseball is on TV, forget it. I can’t play $3/$6 limit or lower very seriously anymore. I can’t play .50/$1 PL and NL games very seriously anymore.

My take on putting in hours: I don’t stress my hours like I once did. If I can get in a solid 8 or 12 hour session and play well through the whole thing I do. If I can only play three hours or less at optimum concentration level then I play three hours. The important thing is that you sit down to play and function your best. Sometimes sitting in a room with some noise is best for me, even if it is TV in a language I don’t speak or some music, sometimes I need silence to focus on the task at hand. If the TV is a distraction, turn it off and turn on some tunes, if the music distracts you try silence.
