My name’s Rich. Which could be argued to be somewhat ironic, considering the fact that I am anything other. For a while I thought I could get rich, or at least always have a decent steady income, from playing online poker. I managed to play professionally for two years at the beginning of the online poker boom. And then…. well, we’ll get to that. Suffice it to say that I can still make money playing poker online, but it’s nowhere near a living, and my hourly rate is terrible.
I know that I’m not playing to anywhere near the best of my ability. I want to know if I can make poker work again. At the very least I want it to be enjoyable again!
This blog is intended as a sort of diary for myself, a way of forcing myself to think through what I am doing. I’d love to get as many readers along the way as possible to get some opinions on my thoughts, either for validation or even to point out my errors. It would also make me very happy to hear that I’ve helped others in their pursuit of poker greatness!
So read on my friends, and give me a piece of your mind.
