      Hi, im from portugal here and have been playing online poker for about 3 years. When i started i was desperate for money and lost a lot. I never bothered learning/reading. I went straight into it and fell hard! This year, i told myself i would need to improve by learning as much as i could from others and also have more patience with the game! I've gained back slowly from techniques and skills I've picked up just this year and now I am always looking for ways to to improve my game. This site is a great start!

      Good luck to you all!

      Hey Kaphino,

      Such a nice name, rolls so good off the tongue.

      Hey guys, sorry for the late reply and thanks for the welcome! Looks like you both have been here awhile.

      I did pass the quiz and used my 50$ capital... thank you pokerstrategy :)

      I normally play low stakes sit n go's (6 handed mostly) and enter a few tournaments now and then. I do well sometimes and i consider myself a fairly solid and consistent player excpet i have a problem controlling my temper especially after a bad beat, ill turn into a loose cannon lol. So im trying to improve on that area!

      I also want to learn more about the psychological aspects of low stake sit n go's so if you have any links on that please let me know :)

      i used to be the same try playing like a load of cash game hands low stakes, ive done doing this, and i can put up with anything now, Ive had like 3AA busted this session KK vs AA, JJ vs KK, ive just learnt when im on top that i will make a return more often than not from these situations. I used to be sooo bad, i would just buy in my whole BR at stupid limits and blow it.Im glad them days are over :)

      Hi Matt (this time really saying hi to you :D )

      Unfortunately, we are unable to change usernames. Unless we have a very good reason to (for example, a very very inappropriate name). ;)

      I guess a lot of males believe they can beat a women? (ego)
      Tell me about it! :facepalm:
