A Blog For Draw Players!
If you opened this thread, I'm going to assume you have, just like me, some interest in the game of 5 card draw, or some other kind of draw games. Wheter you're often playing this game, or if you've just tried once or twice, you will surely have noticed the huge lack of content on the Internet about 5 card draw. Apart from a few questions here and there on different forums and a couple links to some playing advices, there's nothing! Nothing at all!
The motivation behind this blog is to create a place where draw players can come and discuss about the game, where they can share their thoughts about some hands or tough spots, and where they can learn a thing or two by reading about other people's ideas. And also just to have some fun!
Well, since I'm starting this blog, I feel like there's the obligation to present myself... I'm a young Canadian living in the city of Montreal (Bonjour à tous les Québécois! ). I'm currently studing in Mathematics and Computer Science, as these are two of my biggest field of interest!! As for my job, I am running since January my own small buisness of professional residencial paint jobs! Although this is totally unrelated to my field of study, I really like doing this and it's also a wonderful learning experience.
As for poker, I have been playing very sporadicly since October 2009. I've started here, on PokerStrategy, thanks to the 50$ starting capital!! I've tried all sorts of hold'em games: I've played some limit and no limit cash games, I've done lots of SnGs, and also a couple of MTTs. I wasn't really serious at that time, so I got my bankroll down to about 10$... And then I stopped for a couple of months. When I came back, around June last year, I tried games other than Hold'em, and had quite a lot of success in 5 card draw. So I played this particular game more and more, all while trying to find some ressources about the game, to no avail. Nonetheless, I still managed to get my BR back up to 45$ with .1/.2 draw alone! But, in September, when the school began, I stopped playing for the second time...
Now, I coming back to the game of 5 card draw. But, this time around, I would like to be able to share my thoughts and my expericences with others, as this will be much more fun than simply grinding the small tables alone... And that's my motivation for writing this blog!!
As I've stated earlier, I'd like this blog to become a place where draw players can enjoy the game together. Kind of a mix between a small work group and a place to simply discuss and have fun! For my part, it will also be a way to enjoy the game a whole lot more, to share some of my hands and analysis with others, and to help out other draw players by giving my thoughts of some hands or on some strategy.
To keep this blog active, I will post twice a week updates on my play and on my bankroll, aswell as some hands to discuss about (or maybe just to show-off! ). Of course, I'll try to keep up with your posts by visiting the thread at least once a day!!
On your part, feel free to post some of your own hands, to comment on mine, and to share some of your own draw adventures! Or simply to follow and read the blog! As long as you have fun reading this, and maybe learn a thing or two, I'll be happy to have helped a fellow draw player!
I'll use this space to post my graphs and to keep up with my bankroll. I'll update this about twice a week, or once I get enough hands played for it to be worth while...
For this first post, I could post my old graph from last June to September, but I want this blog to be a new start. So, I'll wait for a bit a post a new graph soon..
Bankroll as of March, 11:
Sessions played: 2
Hands played: 326
Total Win/Loss since the beginning of the blog: 2,02$
For prosperity, and also for easier searchs when this thread will get a few pages long, I will post a link to each of my bankroll updates.
Last Update: March 11
So this is it for now... I'm heading off to the tables so I can post my very first update pretty soon! While waiting for that first graph, feel free to say hello, as I would really like to see how many draw players are here and share the beginning of my "journey" with you guys!!
P.S. Sorry if you find any typos, I hope I haven't left a ton of them in there...
