2011 Crush Crush Crush

Hey everyone!! It has been a while and I hope everyone had a blast off to the New Year and Christmas!!

Things have been great. First off, I like to recap my 2010 year. Since last year was my first year trying this online thing out to play professionally, I have to say it wasn't what I expected. I'm officially a Rakeback Pro for 2010. I put in 1.62 million hands and managed to breakeven the whole year. Not my proudest moment and most of my losses came from 100nl when I took shots at it. I think overall was a good learning, life, and knowing more of myself experience. Poker has taught me a lot of things the past year and I think I'm a better person since I started this career path. You have to balance your life, yourself, your family, working, studying, etc etc. Without it, you will just be a poker unsocialized person to the real world. Not saying that it is bad, but believe me, I have gone through it shutting the whole world out and at one point I think poker was an addiction. Playing professionally, has taught me to manage my time more (which I'm still doing), continually trying to stay ahead of the competition, and making better decisions with what I do weather it be poker, family, life. I think we continue to evolve and with that hopefully become a better poker player. Dealing with so many emotions, swings, happiness, sadness, has all led to my development. I really hope that I can make this a career for the many years to come to take care of my family. Honestly, this beats most jobs out there and the chance to stay home, be my own boss, and spend time with my family whenever I want has been amazing.

With that, 2011 I hope to have a winning year. Put in at least 2.5 million hands and work towards that SNE Goal. I think for this year, I might not be able to make it since I really want to crush my limits i'm playing at before I even consider playing 100nl again. I'm rolled for 100nl, but to be honest, I am not ready for that comfort zone. I'm starting to feel good again, regaining my confidence, working on my game, getting into good situations, talking poker with other like minded individuals, etc etc. I'm going to see how the next few months go at 50nl and if I do have some solid results, I might consider taking shots at 100nl again.

I'm still going to 24 table as I depend on the vpp's, but I have a wealth of more knowledge than I did when I first started and I think with that said, I should have better results for this year. If I don't, than it will be time to reevaluate poker. I hope you all have a great year and I hope we can get better at poker along the way. Feel free to email me and we can exchange skype info to get better at poker and work on this ever changing game. socialscenepr@yahoo.com

best of luck on the journey!
