      Hey guys!

      Nice to see how big this forum is since it started more than two years ago. It’s been a while since I’ve been active here last time. I played some hands here and there, but due to a huge workload I wasn’t really in the mood to play a lot online or work on my game. Now I have more freetime than before and I think it’s time to get back at the tables and play some hands.

      I plan on starting at NL25SH on PartyPoker again, since my BR there is quite small. The main part of my BR is on another poker site. But I want to start all over again and get back to where I started: With a small BR on PartyPoker.

      To keep track of my progress I’ll start this blog. And now let’s see whether I can still play poker ;) I’m looking forward to your comments and the discussions with you.

      Good luck at the tables! :D

      I never really saw you around but i have heard things and seen old posts + vids :)

      Hopefully you can comeback and rape the NL25 tables!! Oh and btw your signature is a bit out of date :D

      Good luck and best regards,

      Hi guys!

      @ Ensyfer: which limits do you play at the moment? Good luck with your second start!

      @ SoyCD: Thanks! I read our blog. Maybe we should start a challenge who is playing NL1k first?! :s_cool:

      @ kingdippy2008: :D I guess you are right. Well...it's been a while though

      Thanks for your first replies!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Thanks guys!

      @ swissmoumout: do it! :f_biggrin:

      @ Ensyfer: My goal is not to make as much money as possible, but to get back into the "learning loop". The last 1,5 years I didnt work on my game at all and just played the game I learned before. But the game changed a lot and I have to adapt now. I also want to prove myself that I still can climb up the limits like I did when I started with PokerStrategy more than 3 years ago.

      @ TwiceT: me too :P

      @Puschkin81: Must admit, your comeback quite motivated me, not sure why
      though :) Got me thinking, perhaps i should start my own blog as well. I would
      get some feedback (probably), some support and discipline. Prolly that would
      be good for my poker education.. ah well what do i know :)

      Thank you, guys!

      @ EagleStar88: I'll try my best ;)

      @ Ensyfer: Nice to hear that. Just give it a try. Highest priority should be your game and your progress. Everything that helps you, is welcome.

      @ JuiceQuadre: "old school"...that sounds like I'm born in the last century....oh....wait... :f_confused:

      @ GooRukYONG: Thank you! What does "new" mean? Which limits do you play?

      Good luck at the tables!
