Gee where do I begin.. I used to have an online poker log but the information was inaccurate due to never recording hours. I want to do my best job in recording hours of play and each exact dollar amount spent per session.
This Log will be a combination of online play from Black Chip Poker (BCP) and live play from house games to casinos.
I currently play 10/25 cent on BCP. Trying to make a millions or go broke doing it ;D.

Tomorrow will be my first entry of live play. I've learned a lot lately. I need the mindset of being the best player at the table at all times. Even if you think someone is "just as good as you", you still need to regulate and play straight forward. I've learned that I should isolate the shit out of fish, even if i'm depicted as the 'dick' or conservo punk at the table. I need to have intentions of taking down hands whenever i'm in one! I will take 3 BI's tomorrow and a destiny.

to get back on or not
well I feel like I should think about posting again on here some. I had almost torked off my entire bankroll the last time I logged on here, but I quit with 83 bucks left, I had a bonus that paid me 400 more and all that got me restarted. I started reading a ton on 2 plus 2 and started using hold em manager (well omaha manager, but same difference). I am now up well over 2 grand since last I was on here. My whole idea of the game has changed and I am hoping to get into some decent chat about poker, specifically omaha if anyone is interested. hope all is well for everyone who reads this site, it's a good site, maybe we can kick start it back up!

after playing a fairly long session, i'm still hungry to play. my internet's been acting like a bitch but its okay. any way so i was looking at my USD > EV for the month and saw that out of the money I lost for the month (33k hands thus far), I have lost -$618 off of AK and QQ flips. and at times it's not even a flip its just straight up domination.
with that being said i'm going to better pick my spots to spew in (such as maybe spewing in the HJ CO BTN SB BB only). I also looked at my biggest won pots for the month and I saw no AK and no QQ for winning a single stack! now thats just sad. with that being said, my AK play definitely has to slow the fuck down. any way my game is getting a lot more deeper and better due to table decraseage(sp). I'm excited to see with what tomorrow leaves me to learn.
few things I learned today:
-play no more than 8 tables
-think before you act on every single decision
-don't auto muck anymore
-observe a persons vpip have to be in order for you to be getting value off 3 bets
-have intentions of taking the hand down every time you play a hand.
-when making a huge decision pre flop, look at the persons PFR and position
Questions to ask:
What do the persons stats have to be in order for you to want to get value you preflop with 99-QQ

Ok so it's 3:36 AM and i'm currently getting ready for bed. i decided to start up this whole log thing again because I feel that expressing my thoughts can help me get a lot off my chest. As of today I have written down some key guidelines that I go by everyday:
-Better your bankroll management!
-Every hand has a purpose (zone in)
-DO NOT ever look at cashier or HEM enless you think your under 3 BI's, look @ graph before hand.
-Don't let your hands get cracked. protect.
-Play on your 'A' game at all times
-Accept the facts(variance, ego).
I feel that the biggest flaw in my game is not understanding the concept of, "poker is a slow come up but a quick down fall" -JJ (my bro). Poker is as well an egotistic game. I really shouldn't play with regs that are just as good as me or better. I will try to post in this thing everyday to once a week. Just to say one thing I learned for the day. Thank you for following.
'time to grind a 15k hand week!'

Still haven't posted yet in a while. Jimmy and I are in a discussion on whether or not to start posting again. He is going to start posting for sure because it helps him keep grounded. My problem still is that I work and play at the same time and it changes my play. give lots of people breaks, dont bust little stack etc. So considering going back to the OTC status and maybe go through and repost everything (if possible) to show the just on the clock posts or start a new thread.

OK, here we go!!!!
Well...I have just signed up to Online Poker Log to start my own poker blog. I guess only time will tell how proficient and committed I am to posting, but it is something I have been thinking about for a while.
I have been playing poker for a little over 12 months. I was never interested in the game at all as I found it hard to comprehend hand values, when to bet, how to play etc..
But then a friend invited me over to his house for a friendly home game. Due to a dramatic mistake on his part (he thought his cards were mine and went all in, my cards were great...his were not and he ended up losing) I had my first big win....a total of $40.
Well that was all I needed to get me interested. The feeling of winning was awesome and I just couldn't get enough. I started playing online whenever I could and it actually dominated all of my spare time for quite a while. I soon realised that spending every spare minute playing poker was probably not healthy, so I have eased off quite a bit lately.
Over the last week in particular I have decided to play quality poker, rather that quantity and it is starting to pay off a little.
Although I have not invested a huge amount of money over the last year I am still down and I am keen to turn this around so I can actually build a profitable bankroll and eventually afford to enrol in some serious live tournaments.
I have read a few poker strategy books which have helped me understand the intracies of the game, although I would still consider myself to be a novice. I think my biggest obstacle is the fact I don't have a lot of spare cash so playing bigger tournaments or higher stakes games can at times be difficult.
So come and visit my blog from time to time and I will try and post some interesting and humerous insights into my play.
