      Firstly I'd like to introduce myself.. name is Darren Rudolph :s_biggrin: . I am am a 25yr old South African citizen. I have been playin online poker for roughly 3years, but about 6months fulltime. I became a member of PS about 2months ago and it has really helped my game alot!

      I have decided to start a blog on my progess as i think I'd probably get some decent feedback.

      Im playing 3piggs poker, its a local microgaming room. My starting BR for today is R4530 ( $664.22)

      I currently play 100NL; 200NL cash tables,
      R8.25 (1.5k Guaranteed) and R33 (3k Guaranteed) MTT's
      *(South African Rand vs US Dollar 18 Apr 2011 - $1 = R6.82)

      I will make notes of key hands and events throughout the day and post in the evenings! I look forward to my journey with PokerStrategy!
