Ok so i was going to make a website or something to "log" my poker journey but i have been reading alot of the blogs here and decided to contribute.

for a little bio, My name is Clay im 23 from Canada. Im really new to poker i think a few months ago i hardly knew what hands beat what and at my job i have alot of free time so i have been reading and researching a TUN i feel like my game is 1000x better already

My eventual goal is to make a living off poker, but for the rest of this year is more of a learning curve and experience

ATM im not practicing bank roll management tisk tisk on me, but atm i have quite a bit of extra money so i can reload if needed, this year is all about experience and learning, when the year ends im REALLY cracking down and tryin to make this my life ^_^

But right now like i said its just casual fun and excitement, altho im trying to win still i know im takin some silly risks and mistakes to get them out of the way

Hope u guys enjoy this, any tips or feed back is welcome be sure to participate ^_^


So today was my day off work, I had a bunch of stuff to do so i was just casually playing a single table while watching TV and chatting on msn

i was off to a horrid start, made my money back eventually then went out and did some shopping. When i came home i played like 20 hands in won 2 HUGE pots one after another and called it a night
