Okay so im 27 and from Ireland, im a student and i`ve been playing poker for 2 years now and since last summer i decided im going to dedicate as much free time as i can to improving my game so i can actually make a bit of extra cash doing something i love.
I`ve so far read Harrington`s 3 books (V.good books, well recommended), ace on the river (Okay, thought me more about discipline) and am currently reading Raiser`s game. I also have joined PSO and find the help on here is endless, much appreciated :-D .
I also help run a poker society in college where we organise a live game once a week and also play intervarsities etc.. This helps my live play at small enough stakes which i can afford.

My first big live tourney was a €225 buy-in IPO in Dublin, It had 1050 runners and i finished in 49th place for a cash of €560.
I also play at a 2 local casino`s where i have a few cashes my biggest being €800 in a €95 buy-in 40 runners.

My biggest online cash is $250 which i won this month in a heads up tourney and i also came 2nd in another HU tourney on the same day so i`ve decided that with this as my Bankroll im ready for 2012.

I plan on playing in 3 live tourneys this year, the Student Masters, UKIPT Dublin and the IPO again.
I want to double my Bankroll in 6 months, then double it again by December.
Im taking the cowboy challenge in January and providing that goes well i may continue it every month.

Well thats my poker story so far, i`ll be posting monthly updates as to how its going so thanks for reading and Goodluck at the tables!!
