      Hi all, New to the site and thought i'd drop in and say hi.

      Been playing poker, and losing for the last 18 months, i have one a few tournaments here and there, but I seem to get such bad luck when playing online, so started to look inward at the way i'm playing so thought I'd sign up here and see if i can improve.

      Even just taking the initial starting quiz and looking at the starting hand chart, i'm constantly playing hands which I shouldn't do.

      What I will say, that some of the questions are slightly to regimented, say middle position with pocket 9's, knowing how a lot of online poker players play, people in early position raise with the likes of kj or qj suited from early positions, so flat calling in middle position with say 7/8/9's isn't wrong, and then re evaluate on the flop.

      well, it took me 4 times to complete the quiz, and look forward to talking with you all about hands, beats and other poker stories.

      Happy New year
