   Decided to put a post up to mark the last 6 months of poker. My games progressed a lot, I'm more solid & I've been fairly profitable. The highlight was definitely binking the Tournament of Champions. First year FireMedic hoovered my chips with a solid bluff. Last year I was in A&E getting stitches - my Doberman cross Bitey was the culprit - always thought that name was gonna catch up with me. This year I won a couple of marginal flips then ran really well on
the final table. What a sense of achievement to have finally won it. The standard of play is challenging with a lot of very competent players. Over the years I've benifited so much from the opportunity to learn a lot of poker variants in a very welcoming school. Cheers guys. It's also very nice having the TOC banner. Very bling - well done to the designer.

   What's really clicked recently has been my stronger late position / button dynamic play. Currently
I'm working on a disruptive betting strategy  and so far its been very successful. Playing 50-50 sng's affords a lot of opportunity to practice variations. I'm due for some stat analysis & I've decided to focus on modelling my Razz/ Badugi game. These are my favourites & I want to analyse the successes I've been having & look at any optimizations I could make to my approach. I'm sure there's room for improvement. I also play a fair bit of HORSE & 8 Game. There's a lot of spots in these games when all the experience I gained in Home games really gives me an advantage.    Top Tip : pay attention to the blinds. Usually about the bubble you wll have a chance to really press any advantage you've got. The newish series of Progressive KO tourneys are really good value for money. If you can hit the final 2 tables the bonuses are very worthwhile

   Really enjoying my poker at the moment & after seeing some recent posts from new members I thought I'd offer some encouragement & advice.
  > Bankroll management. > Study game mechanics(range analysis, bet sizing & hand value)       . > Position. > Patience. > Set measurable/achievable targets. > Experience a broad range of formats & variations by playing the Home game series. You'll find some game types that you have an edge at.  > Do some analysis. Most importantly all these things which I think are key to playing balanced poker are available in multiple formats at PokerSchoool. Go on - tell everybody.

YOU WILL LOSE (but enjoy the process).
