Hi guys, I'm spand42 from the UK and I'm wanting to eliminate bad habits and share my thoughts and progress with the online community.

My brief story: I've been playing poker since 2010 with various levels of dedication. I've only ever played with micro/small bankrolls but have had some significant tourney successes - including a couple of MTT victories with 3K+ players, winning the Daily Double Jackpot on Full Tilt, final tabling a GUKPT live event and others.

However each time I've felt like I'm the next Phil Ivey - moved to way too high stakes and blown most/all of it chasing the dream.

I've started again about a month ago with a bankroll of $30, have increased this significantly, with a significant win coming 30th in the recent Micro Millions Main Event on Full Tilt - although I took out most of this for Christmas purposes!

However I am wary of previous mistakes I have made and my friends have recommended joining an online community to bounce ideas with.

Sorry for the life story - let's improve together at the tables!
