      Hi guys, id like to start off by saying that im really looking foward to getting involved with all of you. This place looks amazing. The community is awesome can't wait to get my game on.

      A litle about me. Im 30 years old. From Montreal, Canada. I've been playing poker for the last 5 years or so but never seriously. I've always loved it. I find it challenging on soo many levels. Can't say that im good at it. Id like to think i have the smarts and the will to become a winning player. I decided that i was gonna commit to it in 2014. Im trying to put in 20-30 hours a week to the game.

      I find it a bit overwhelming the ammount of information there is. Im not quite sure how to go about it. Theory, practice, reviewing ect. My goals for 2014 are to move up one stake. Im starting at NL5. I really wanna understand the game. Also i think im gonna invest in getting lessons once i have a bigger database of hands.

      Well thats pretty much it for now i guess. If you guys have any input please feel free to share your toughts!

      Thanks to all and good luck on the tables!

      Hey jeebRNMD,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com :)

      I don't really have a set ratio of study/play/review but plenty in our awesome community have quite stringent rules when it comes to that so I'm sure you'll get some good responses to work with.

      Regards

      Laz

      There aren't really guidelines for a blog. For me it's a peronal space where I can share all the crap thats in my head :f_biggrin: If others read it or not I don't really care.

      But what is really nice about a blog is going back to the first page after a couple of years. It's great to see your own progress!
