      Hey all, Im J. and living in Denver Metro. I have been playing recreationally since about 2006. I play some online but prefer Live.

      Felt I was a pretty good player (better then break even). Until last year. I played HPT in Blackhawk CO and basically learned that I had a lot to learn. Had a few big name pros @ my table and turned into a mouse. I lasted through the end of that day but busted out before break for day 2. I wasn't really mad but it did open my eyes that I needed a lot of help and work.

      It is now almost a year later, I have been working with a coach for the past 5 months, reading books, and using some online/ offline training software. I am at the point where I feel comfortable discussing different ideas and theory with others. I have not ever used forums so this will definitely be something new for me. I came across this site today, looked around and really like it. So here I am.

      Hope to make some friends and learn a lot more.

      Feel free to send a message.
