My History and future on PokerStars

Hi to all,

I joined and downloaded PS 2 or 3 years ago, and until the last few months i have only been playing the Tourney Freerolls (Hubbles NLHE) and have only made it to the next stage once with a 53rd placing to end up been entered into a Badugi game, and i was like wtf? what is that? but i had a few games and studied up on the game of Badugi before the comp started and well i didnt come last but i realised that NLHE was the game for me Haha.

The last few months i have deposited the min amount of money required $10USD once a week and been entering the 100k and sum $1.50 9plyr STT, regularly picking up a top 3 finish for the STT and 8/10 times pick up a small amount of money on the 100k (.80c the most haha).

But my best is a 1st in a 18 player $1.50 MTT taking $9.30 which i was on a high for a while, doesnt sound like much but when you make what you have deposited or there abouts is AWESOME!!

But i have put most of that winning down to the great tutorials here on PS, because before i read them i was playing like a egg not a donk or a fish a damn EGG, thats our Kiwi version of a bad player, well i have just made that up haha (ref to the movie 'Boy' a Kiwi movie)

I have a long way to go but I will get there and get my Bankroll Bigger and better than before!!

My yearly goals are

Monthly goals

Read up on Poker tutorials
