      I'm Matt.

      From UK, currently live in Spain.

      Poker Names: sonicmatter (pokerstars/partypoker)

      In the last 3 years I’ve taken the game more seriously, have been active on forums including 2+2 to improve my game, and am a member of poker strategy, at platinum level, and spend a couple of hours a day watching strategy videos there.

      My Goals

      To keep my MTT ROI over 100%

      To move up in stakes and continue to look at live events, where I’ve had some success in the past. To continue to work on my game, and look to playing full time.

      I’ve been playing poker for the last 8 years, and have taken it seriously enough to read some books and join forums, watch videos.

      I’ve had some large wins online for stakes played, and also cashed twice in the Sunday Million.

      Thanks for welcome, yes took a while, only just got back to poker after a 6 month break.

      Will look at the blog idea, looks like a good way to focus, and get feedback. What's the best way to get started?

      Hey there Matt,

      Welcome (back) to PokerStrategy.com :)

      Best way to start blogging is just to jump right in and put all your thoughts down.

      An introduction, some people like to keep it simple other like to tell a full life story but thats what keeps each blog unique everyone's different and the different personalities come out in each blog.

      Then a short (or long if you prefer) description of your poker background

      Usually this is followed by your aims and objectives of what you are hoping to achieve from your blog or poker in general these can be short mid or long term goals.


      This is pretty much the standard template for the blogs here but feel free to do something different, whatever is in your head write it down. Blogs can be a great place to meet fellow players/sweat partners, share you're happiness/excitement about wins in poker or life. And share the burden of bad beats, again in life or poker (this can really help with tilt to, being able to write down your frustrations and get them out of your system)

      Good to have you in the forums hope to see you around

      Carl

      I live in Barcelona, great city, a fair few grinders located here, a decent-ish casino, but it's an amazing city to live most of the time.

      Poker on hold for last few days, and next few.

      The blog, it's half written, I promise, will be up in a week. My other life organising music events keeps me busy about 10 days a month, I'm kinda deep in that at the moment.

      How could I not see the Matt connection, yes, it's an awesome name, we are blessed!

      I officially promise a full opening blog within 7 days. :-)

      QFT! - If it is not, I'll hunt you down :evil:

      Matt means we're instantly gifted with awesome poker skill, right? ;) I wish

      Music keeps you busy for 1/3 of the month, but you still manage to get Platinum every month? Sweet!

      Ever thought of aiming for Diamond? Then you could attend the PokerStrategy VIP Tour :s_cool:

      Wait for the blog, now, can't be putting out spoilers already, even to another Matt.

      Us matt's are all naturally gifted at poker, do we have to run so bad though, lol.
