      Hi I'm a full-time taxi driver and quite a few of my passengers and friends play either in casinos or on-line and tell me about it. So I started playing on-line a few months ago out of curiosity really. I enjoy the game but I don't feel I'm doing as well as I could do so I'm seeking help from a course like this.

      Question 1: What is your motivation for playing poker?

      I enjoy playing Poker at the 1 cent 2 cent limit, but I'm a losing player. I only lose a few dollars a week so financially it doesn't worry me. But I would like to at least break even and possibly make small profits from my new hobby.


      Question 2: What are your weaknesses when playing poker?

      a) I play far too many hands. At the lower limits everyone just limps or calls to see a flop and I just limp along with them. The PS software "SideKick" describes me as a "Curious George".

      b) When I have a good hand I just don't seem to make much from them.

      c) When someone re-raises my bet or goes all-in against me pre-flop, for some reason I take it personally. It's as if they're saying that I'm a coward and don't have the guts for this game. So I feel I have to go all-in also, most times I lose but I feel at least I showed them that I'm not a coward even if it cost me money.

      It may sound stupid but the rare times I do make money, is usually from these all-in situations. They go all-in usually with a big pair and I call with any pair, picture or suited cards and I get lucky by getting a flush, trips or even a full-house.


      Question 3: What does it mean to play tight aggressive?

      Means you only play decent starting hands as described in the starting hands chart and you play them aggressively by raising or re-raising pre-flop.
