      Played mostly online so far, entered a live tournament Thursday just gone.

      £30 buy in, 90 starters. Got down to 3 tables, running out of BB and went all in with pocket 7s, guy called with pocket 6s and flopped a 6 haha.

      Finished 23rd, would have been nice for abit of luck - but i enjoyed the night and i liked it much more than online.

      Online so far I'd say im down about £100 - however this is due to just bad BRM - which at first is understandable i guess, u just wanna enter the nice tournaments and don't realize you have to go up the ladder.

      Made about 5 final tables on 888 - should have won one, but like the situation above the flopped a set with lower cards. Just enjoying studying the game and the maths behind it - as i study maths at university.

      Hi Reece270!

      Welcome to the community!

      Did you take the quiz? Or are you going to take the quiz?

      I see you play tournaments? Might be a good idea to check out our MTT articles, videos and live coachings. It will help you a great deal and you might get your first final table win!

      Good luck on the tables, live and online!

      Play NL5 on stars Zoommmmmmm. :f_biggrin:

      Never played live before, real life takes priority (Work/GF etc) so never have a free night for live play.
      Also have no mates that are into poker. Will definitely give it a go someday though.

      What limits do you play?

      Hello and welcome! I am 18 almost 19 in a month and play NL 5 ZOOM at Pokerstars as well. I have tried my hand at tournaments with mixed success. Maybe I can give you some cash lessons and you can give me some tournament lessons! :D

      Hey Reece,

      I see that you're bronze, so I take it the Free $50 is in your account now? If not, give us a shout and we'll try to resolve any problems :)

      Moving to Doncaster eh? How long ad you going for, a few weeks or living there for several months or a year? Guess you wont be able to play much whilst you're moving? :(

      Hey, yeah i have received the free $50, and deposited £30 of my own money, just collect PP so i can get the bonus's from ladbrokes, its a nice juicy £15 bonus each 700 points, played 2 days so far and got 150 points. Can release 5 of these bonus's, quite nice actually.

      As for the moving, its just because im quitting university so ill actually have more time to play at the moment, and i dont go for a few weeks.. and currently only doing a part time job so I'm getting a good 8 hours a day play time in.

      Currently playing cash tables and holding my own quite nicely, more or less break even due to some tournament entries without finishes.

      All going well :)

      In which case Reece, may I suggest you start a blog? A great way to get feedback on your play and you can have a bit of fun doing it as well!

      Very best regards,

      Mal.
