I've started a new blog for this year. I'll be updating it every so often with progress reports on my version of xflixx's Grinding it Up as I try to work my way up from 25NL upwards.

I'll also post some of my MTT adventures, hopefully I can make a few big scores this year.

The name "Checking for info" combines my main hobby - chess - with Dave's favourite reason for betting

Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to feature on my blog that you might find interesting!

Check out my first post here - A little bit about me and my plans for the future.

I've subscribed and will follow. I'm also a chess fan (played for 4 hours this evening, actually) and I like how the game has similarities (as well as crucial differences!) to poker.

My 2nd post is now up:

Laying the groundwork for solid goal-setting

A point for discussion on here - what do people on here do for sports/exercise whilst on the poker grind?

I'm looking for some inspiration to improve my fitness/get back in some sort of shape!

Do you play over the board or on the internet?

Over the board with my best mate (who's of a similar lack of experience/skill). I don't want to play randoms on the net, because it's so easy to run a bot like Fritz at the same time, which kind of defeats the point.
