Seriously... was introduced to poker on family game nights at grandparents when 7 (penny Rumoli) and have reasonably good understanding of the hands and what-not. 

The reference to the donkeying that seem to find myself doing comes about due to my introduction to online poker.  As some of you are aware (from table chat where personally quite active) the first experience this player ever had with online poker was on Facebook playing Texas Hold'em on Zynga.  What a terrible game!  The habits picked up in that format are going to take a lifetime of constant practice to recover from, no joke. 

Am going to start a regular blog about my evolution from a recovering (10+ years bet-free) horses gambler to a poker player, starting with my current bankroll situation and plans for how to improve it.
