First Post

I'm new to this blogging shit so people will have to forgive my lame titles til I become a pro like that Amatay fish bloke.

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while now because I'm hoping it will help me manage a bankroll. The last year has been really disappointing on the poker front even tho on the tables I'm up about £15k. Why? Well, I've been a dick basically -I can win 10 or 20 buy ins in a short space of time and if I lose one or two back I'm instantly moving up limits looking for the quickest way to get A9 off all in pre or trying to blast away on Will Hill's Live casino. So I've basically had a breakeven year pokerwise. Marvellous.

On a side note, the Will Hill live casino is based in Latvia so its basically lots of fit female croupiers who you can wind up in the chatbox. Me and a mate thought it was hilarious playing on the first night when pretty drunk. Choosing screen names 'yourbellend' and 'Myhairyanus' is entertaining when some nice looking latvian bird (who looks like she got lost on her way to work at Spearmint Rhino's) asks 'Do you want to split your bellend?' or 'Would you like to insure YourHairyAnus?' Hmmm maybe I need to get out more.

Anyway, I've transferred most of my bankroll over to a mate and I'm starting again in the next few days with the £1k i just transferred into my Will Hill account. Not looking forward to playing 25p50p but if it helps me learn bankroll management then it'll be more than worth it. I will only put more money in my account and move up if I know 100% that I'm not going to touch sports betting, house games or play in any poker game in which I have less than 30 buy ins for. Of course 25p50p is an exception with 1k because if I lose 20 buy ins there I'd probably quit poker its so soft. I'm hoping it won't take me more than a few weeks to make 40BI and move up.

My targets for this year, which i posted on blondepoker (my nickname there is GreekStein):

To start a blog. (Think I'm on my way)

To go to a blonde bash.

To play the Greek Poker Championships again at Dusk Til Dawn.

To play the monthly £200 freezeout at the Big Slick Club more often and their £2/5 cash when it runs. (I swear to god this has to be the softest place to play poker in the world. Even the regs who play day in day out are completely clueless).

Play one leg of the GUKPT.

Have a +£15k year.

In my next post I'll write about how I got into poker and how it eventually got me kicked out of Nottingham uni. Few mad poker related stories to tell before my blog probably turns into another boring bad beat/brag blog.
