Full time poker thread
edited February 2007 in General Chat
I am very new to the online world of poker (I have been playing since Oct. 2006). Due to a unique financial situation I do not have to work. So I am going to start playing poker full time. I will post everything that happens here, in this thread. It will be a way for me to keep track of the evolution of my own game, as well as a way to get feedback from other more experienced players. I am up about three hundred dollars since I began playing. Went through some very bad losses early on, due to my game just being bad. But have been able to bring myself back into the black. I will be putting $500 into my Full Tilt account to start off (looking to take advantage of the Bonus offer). My goal is to play at least eight 55 minute sessions a day, starting out at the 10NL tables. I am going to start over there, build my bankroll, then after maybe a month there move up to 25NL. I also like to play in tournies. So I will more likely than not play two tournies a day, maybe a sNg or two as well. I do not have Poker Tracker or any other tool yet, but am considering getting it once I have my bankroll up to $650, then to take the BR up to $1500 by the end of January. Anything that you guys and gals think might be helpful to me post up. Look forward to hearing from you. BTW I play a very loose and aggressive game.

Don't tell anyone though. I think its illegal in the states.
I would like this partial phrase to be implemented in a game somehow.
Also Calculators like PokerPro 2006 would be an extremely good investment, especially if you want pointers on how to improve, hand histroies help people to help you but PT is also critical if you really want to improve. The calculator advises whether to raise, fold, bluff, slow-play, or check-raise.
Lastly, don't take this the wrong way but with your level of experience and the stakes you play, it's going to be a while before you make a living out of playing poker. That is, a comfortable and consistent living. I don't know how much you're going to rely on your poker earnings but bare that in mind.
