Trying Out Pokerstars

By: JDdog34 @ 21:24 (EDT) / 221 / Comment ( 0 )
I'm a 38 year old male who has played poker off and on for about 4-5 years with small successes, a $100 cashout here, a $100 cashout there, mainly on Bodog. NLHE is my favorite game, of course, and I prefer MTTs and STTs. Not really a fan of ring games but I'll play them from time to time. I think the most I've ever won at one table was about $120 for coming in first in a $500 freeroll. I guess I consider myself an ... above average, competent but not great, player, though some might disagree. I've looked at my strengths and weaknesses and there's definitely a few things I'm slowly trying to work on. I've played next to none on Pokerstars, but looking at the PSO material made me decide to spend some time here. So far, I like the software and the players fairly well. I'll be making a small deposit of $20 soon and see how that goes. I hope to make 20 VPPs by the end of the month to qualify for the "active" players portion of the PSO league next month.
