      I registered in pokerstrategy.com by a friend advice. I was looking at poker for a past time very sceptic. But at this moment I have more free time than I was expecting, so I tried to read something about poker and play a little bit. And you know it is quite interesting. Actually I like these kind of games - where you need to think, I am pretty good at math and logical questions.

      I have passed basic course here, and that is how I get my starting capital at Party Poker. At the moment I have lost about 10$ of it, but it is mainly because I was just trying how does it feels like to play. Now I am reading through the articles and watching videos. Training with ICM trainer.

      My goal is to earn some money in online poker rooms and to win everyone at the local plays :s_biggrin:

      I am ready to spend about 40 hours per month for playing.

      Well that is all for the moment :)

      Good job! Homework #1 Done!

      Poker is definitely where you will find something new. :) Also if you are good enough then good spot you can earn besides having it as a good hobby.

      Well, the math part will be 2nd part of your learning process. You still have to concentrate a lot more on preflop play/postflop play and obviously trying to stick to the bankroll management, use the chart and many different things you will find in the articles you read.
