I am just another poker player from Australia who started playing Poker after reading a news article on the toilet about Joe Hachems triumph in the 2005 WSOP Main Event .

Need to start taking poker more serious and develop my game and try and fix my leaks. I know i am not the best player online but i really do enjoy playing the game in my spare time when nothing much is happening. Well i was on the 5min break and noticed this in the Pokerstars lobby and thought id check it out. All i can say well played Pokerstars I am really really impressed. 

Being a Family man and working fulltime and a side "job" on the weekends i dont get too much time to play let alone attempt to improve my game. 

From this point on i would like to announce that my thought process has changed and i would like to start using this school to improve my game and most importantly, build some sort of bankroll and employ strict bankroll management.  I will use the hashtag #pso when tweeting about any poker updates from this school. If you are on twitter let me know your a member and link up your blog il be sure to check it out. My name is @jbell001

I dont wanna drag this on too long but i will leave you with 2 hands from mtts i am currently playing now. 

AK vs AQ

This guy was very active and cbet everytime he raised pf. I knew i had him and actually put him KQ KJ at best.

Very interesting hand

This hand was very different because the tables were turned and i had been the active player raising and cBetting 80% of flops. i was never ever gonna call a bet bigger then the size he did on the river but after the hand i couldnt help but  wonder if i had shoved this river would he have layed those babies down?? Screw hindsight lol  i shook it offf and still in The Big 33$ with 20k gteed which i sattied into for 12$- 6max hyper win

Need a top 3 tonight one time 4 figure score hahaha   I wil post more key hands from these tourneys if i remember and will also attempt to be a active community member of this awesome site.

Would love some feedback on the hands posted and maybe generate some discussion via this site and help one another with some constructive criticism

I hope you join me on my journey, good luck on the table to all.
