This log starts after I have been playing low-limit Internet poker for more than a year. I have to withdraw money every month to pay the bills and taxes. But, I have managed to accumulate a $3500 bankroll after starting with $200. My financial condition is improving slowly but surely. So, I have no plans to rush to higher limits until all my personal debt is paid off and I have a sufficient bankroll to play there.

I find poker to be no more or less of a grind than holding a job in any competitive field. Daily performance is mandatory for success. I guess most people wouldn't want an obligation like that though. If not, then they should be terrified of playing poker for a living. To me, a career demands that you give it everything you've learned from every other facet of life. A career is just what Internet poker has become for me.

I first discovered poker bloggers a couple of days ago and I thought I'd give it a whirl. If writing can bring me better focus and thus improve my play, then the blog is a success. If the blog hurts my game in anyway, then I'll have to quit. If anyone finds my page useful or entertaining, or if they can offer me some advice, well that's fine too.
