My journey through the world of poker

So, first post...

By: MarcusVitelX @ 14:13 (EDT) / 225 / Comment ( 2 )

Well to be honest, this first post should been made months ago. I have played online poker for about 5 months now, and still love it. My first intention was to get to know the game, and maybe play for real money in a year or so(Friends of poker told me that I had to play 10 years before I should even consider to be a winning player, ANYWAYS!!!).

That changed fast. A week after playing with funny money, I decided to go play for real money. 51 weeks ahead of schedule, wohoo!

Control control control! First weeks of playing with real money was actually not that bad. My guess is(If I remember correctly) that I was very fishy. Playing around 50-60% of all hands, I was actually making a small profit. Well, up and down as every beginning poker player knows it, until.... BOOM, I lost my money. Every penny gone, just because I wanted to bring in the lost money fast, and started to climb stakes! Uh-oh..

So for me, the first months was about controlling my gambling. NOT chasing the lost, and not going in berserker tilt mode just to get my pennies back.

Looking at the first few months of poker it has been a pleasure to play. I have already dreamt that I won my first WSOP bracelet, and hopefully there is much to come within the next years.

The ambitions are high, and the game is challenging me still fumbling around in the micros. The schedule has been made.

Look forward to post more soon!

Good luck at the tables all.
