The Beginning

Hello Fellow PokerSTARS,

So I will attempt to become a pro poker player.... I am giving myself an intensive 6-12 month practice and learning period integrating money and live tournaments in mid march....

I have played NLHE for 3-5 years... extremely fun but very poorly, no profits in mind at all. I would play live 5-10 cash tables get up in the thousands and throw it all away with dumb flush draws and bluffs. No consideration for the long term with absolutly no emprical knolwedge of the skill required. It lead to a great loss of money which truly wasn't mine to gamble with in the first place. I am currently 23 years old and ran out of funds just short of graduating with an international business degree.

I can play cards all day long, and I am a smart person. This will be my job because I enjoy the game immensly and wish to play a game in order to fund the rest of my life to do what I want, support what I want, and to beat mass amounts of competitors and non-believers along the way.

So for this blog I will be posting about poker hands and situations. I would appreciate any and all feedback. It seems most of us are here to learn and improve so please respect that.
