    hi there, i've just joined sps and just thought i'd say hi to everyone. i was directed here by someone in the chatbox @ stars, it turns out a random pic i took from google images for my stars avatar is actually the logo for this site lol. anyway i guess im here mostly to learn, atm i am playing mainly the 4.40 180's with small success at 500-600 games played in the last month or so but im starting to feel my game slipping away so i need to do somthing about that. i guess i'll be seeing you all in the strat section soon lol


    HI!

    well, im 23, unemployed( i worked at tesco for FIVE YEARS until a few montha ago i was like F this im outta here lol) im living with my mum and step dad and am grinding the 180's so i can rent a house with me girlfriend but i seem to have been slipping the last few days which isnt good. <thats actually one of the reasons im here, i feel im going to take a nice 3hr coaching session with one of the site mentors. all i want out of life is to be able to play mtt's for a living and have a nice house so i can start a family and have loads of pets lol.

    can sombody tell me the username of the sites owner/mods so i can ask which coach would be better suited to up my 180 game? thanks all feeling welcomed allready

    hi mate, its me who you met on stars the other night.

    welcome to the site.

    there are quite a few good players on here that will gladly help analyse certain hands, just post em and you will get good honest answers of how u played the hand.

    i thought you played quite well the other day, maybe ur confidence has took a hit and you are worrying about nothing. you over played a couple of hands,,,, but we are all guilty of that Wink

    advice on playing full time.......its very tough to earn enough money playing poker full time and pay the bills,less than 5% of poker players actually make a regular profit.... you need at least a 5 figure bankroll before you can comfortably do what you are planning. for the time being i would stick to the $4.40/180's if you are making a profit at them. when you have enough built up move up to the $11 180's or 90's.....if things go bad move back down. bankroll management is very important, esp if u plan to pay bills out of your bankroll too. try and find a part time job to cover your living expenses until you feel you've built up enough of a bankroll and improved your game to a standard ready to play for a living. but i warn you in advance, its a rollercoaster ride, so many up's and downs

    as far as mtt's go, its far more difficult to make a living from these than it was 3-5 years ago, esp on pokerstars....great site but terrible payout structures...for arguements sake i have played 60 mtt's on stars in the last 4 days i have made the money 15 times which is quite high and i'm losing..basically coz i'm getting raped as soon as i hit the cash lol.......on stars the money is too top heavy for the big field small buy ins and pittence for most other cashes, i rely on trying to break even(ish) until my next win, which i class as my profit.

    another good bit of advice if you were planning on playing full time, is find a site that gives you rake back...rakeback can make the diffence of a profit or a loss over a given time period.

    i will pm you some more advice on rakeback.

    a couple hours mentoring on here could well make the diffence for you if you feel you need it, wildrick looks after the low buy in mentoring, i sent him a message the other day but the poof hasnt replied YES YOU RICK.

    hope this helps

    hehe hi Sir Ris-a-lot, and welcome to the site!

    Do you use any hand tracking / stats software? eg Hold'em manager, pokertracker, etc

    Do you play any of the "european" sites? Microgaming, ongame, ipoker, etc

    I've sharkscoped your stars alias, nice stats, there's a few points I'd look at, so I'll send you a pm in a mo Wink

    ps danowski is a sound bloke but dont listen to his pha advice lol...hi dan Wink

    Pha advice? whats that?

    I am sound, but as Geordie says dont listen to me, im too new to poker (A yr now) and dont play for the same reasons as most people (to make a nice living) i play for fun and have taken the advice given by these guys seriously as THEY know what they are talking about, so listen and use it wisely.

    However if u want a serious debate on anything else ill get the wife to answer it for ya lol

    Oh and hi Neil :-) lol
