      Hello fellow poker players how d ya do

      Im Daniel 24 years old from Barnsley near Sheffield, England. I have been playing poker for about a year and a half. I never really liked tha game at first..... couldnt stand it to be honest, that wasnt untill i bought new phone with a built in texas holdem game. I ended up trying to play it while a was skiving off work :D I liked it! Later that week i got a friend to sit me down and learn me how to play proper poker..... or so i thought. Anyway I got a grasp of the basic concepts then took what i learned to the tables.... on zynga that is :s_biggrin: I somehow managed to work my way upto about 8.5m chips through tournaments and ring games while all my friends struggled to reach 500k I thought i was poker king......... that was untill i hit the cash tables boywas i wrong ignorance is bliss when ur a fish :f_biggrin:

      After depositing the odd £10 here the odd £10 their and getting no return u no as ya do didnt have a clue about BRM, i realised my game needed a hell of a lot of work. So i watched the odd video i found online (secrets of no limit hold em i think) read a couple of ebooks and kept playing. I knew i was doing something right because my £10 was lasting longer each time :s_biggrin: still had no clue about BRM. Anyway i ended up stumbling across this site somehow in september last year, I think i was searching for free poker bankrolls. So i read the aritcles passed the quiz but never got the free roll :f_cry: dont think i tried properly tbh. I never made use of this site because i kept playing on another account that wasnt tracked so i just used to browse the forums like a ghost in the background picking up bits of usefull information as i went along.

      That was untill April this year when an accident at work ment that my leg was partially severed and had to be re-built OUCH!! ;( So as i had nothing to do but sit around all day recovering, I decided to deposit some $100 hard earned cash onto my tracked account so that i'd be rolled for nl5 (near enough) and so I could take advantage of what this site has to offer, and here i am :P

      Thanks allready to EmanuelC16 an Duudalinja for ur replies in the hand evaluation forum. as thats the first time iv posted on this site,felt a little wierd not introducing my self so their ya go

      Good luck to u all!! :f_cool:
