Rise of a Newbie...Hopefully

By: johnniki1968 @ 20:32 (EST) / 71 / Comment ( 0 )

Someone once said that that a journey of a 1000 miles begins with the first step. Well in my case there has been a bit of a stumble. I just started playing PLO and NLH poker a few months ago. I triied playing at the 5/10 cent level for NLH and lost 64.58 over 2500 hands. I did drop down to down to the 2/5 and after 9000 hands I am up 3.35 . I'm playing 1/2 cents PLO and down 27.66 over 3500 hands. The swings in this game are wild compared to NLHE.


I'm starting my first blog in my life to network and discuss hand reading and betting strategies and will attempt to post my successes and failures in a bid to improve my game.


Anyway people, thanks for reading
