      Hi everyone =)

      My name is Torgeir, and I come from Norway.
      As some others, I have played online poker for 3-4 years, mainly as a marginal losing player.


      I ended up at this site, cause of a link in email from Jared Tendler, which newsletter I signed up to maybe a year ago, not really sure :D

      What I have seen so far, has made a boost in my motivation for beeing a better player. I know some of the basics, but I tend to tilt abit when having a bad beat or 2, and my BRM hasn't been any good, I see that now :tongue:


      Am looking forward to explore both the videos, blogs and also the forum here more!


      Have a nice day all :)

      Welcome Freewolf,

      I am also a new player around here, and I'm sure you will enjoy reading all the articles as much as I have. Good that you know the basics and have acknowledged some of your faults. The only way to fix what your doing wrong is to acknowledge them in the first place :)

      What poker sites do you play at?

      Look forward to seeing you around,
      Chadwicked

      @RasTweet

      Thx :)

      I have mostly been playing SNGs 9-players, but lately I have been focusing on cash-games.

      Am still a low-limit player though. Micro-limit in fact, with 0.05/0.10 and 0.10/0.20 as the mostly played.

      My strength is my ability to calculate odds quickly, my biggest weaknesses is that I too often bid after flop, and also that I tend to many hands :D
      Also, I have to work abit more on learning which type of players I am facing and play according to their lvl of knowledge and playing styles.
      I cannot count even all the times I have been called down to river when a CS just have King high or lowest pair.

      And ofc, as many other players, after a bad beat or 2, I often play badly and way to loose.

      Thx :)

      Good to see that you enjoy articles here!

      I have mostly been playing on PokerStars, cause I really like the GUI there, its always alot of traffic, and the menus are easy to navigate in. And I also like the speed in the changing of hands etc. The competition is harder then other sites though, but I have been a recreational player, and often played after a few beers or while having a few beers :D

      Even though I have wanted to make a profit, and could have been, I have mostly appreciated the fun of playing poker.

      I have decided I want a change though :D

      Which sites do you play at, and is there any site you have as a favorite?


      Look forward to see you around also, Chadwicked!
