      Gday all,

      You can guess from the topic where i am from, and was quite surprised how many others on here are "in the area".

      I have had a similar poker story like others, through highs and lows, tried this and that, and was really impressed by the overall efforts this site offers. My first night was sitting in on a "free" coaching session for SNG, which was well structured and presented most professionaly.

      I originally started my poker career with 9mans a while back now, and have decided that to make a difference, you got to invest in it. After reading through a number of posts, articles and blogs, i have decided to go ahead with some coaching from Jaxtraw @ the 9manT SNG. When we actually get the chance to start (timezone/work variance :s_biggrin: ), i will look forward to giving feedback, and start building a solid game overall.

      I will look at blogging it over the time, but just want to get things up and running first, and get my game on the right track.

      Look forward to catching up with others too, and work through it so we can all benefit.

      Hi Kolonel71,
      I'm an aussie too, live in Newcastle NSW,, You'll benefit greatly from all the content here no matter what your game.
      Originally I was keen to grow my SnG knowledge here. I did this and found that my game was not suited to it and the adjustment s needed felt awkward, like switching from football to soccer kind of thing.
      I have been focusing solely on NL MSS and love the vides available...
      Played at your local RSL yet... You'll crush it

      Welcome kolonel71.

      Good to see another fellow Aussie about.

      First of all.....what NRL team do you go for before we get this started? haha

      Goodluck on the SnG journey and look forward to your blogging.

      Are you doing the quiz or just going to link an account and deposit?

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      LOL, i remember playing one of these at the local (APL i think) when i first started playing poker, had no idea how to play, and still FT. Didnt last long, but didnt enjoy the live play too much as most of them weren't drinking. How can you not drink when you are at a pub ?!?

      Hi Kyle, I don't play the pub scene due to work+family+ online is instant and no travel.I use to play years ago in Sydney thou. It was good fun and met some cool people who were serious about improving their game both live and online.
      The first prize was a $60 voucher for a sea food dinner for 2+ a carton of VB+ a Australian Poker League polo shirt..Pretty cool for a night out.. I won it week 2 & 6 of the 10 week championship.My wife was stoked with all the seafood buffets& me with the beer :P
      Cheers
      Simon

      Started coaching with Peter (Jaxtraw) and subsequently posted in his coaching thread to give people an idea of my thoughts :

      JAXTRAW Expert Coaching, 6-man/9-man Sit&Go, all stakes

      Looking forward to applying new found knowledge, and to start making some progress in moving up through the stakes. Almost rolled for the $7's, so looking forward to it.

      Will post progress in weekly update.
