    Hi all, I'm also applying for member of the week I started playing in early 2009 on Zinga poker on facebook (didn't know better...LOL). I then got interested but needed to learn the basics, so went to the nearest book store and bought a book on poker. I then continued to play on that site by applying what I had learned and accumulated millions of dollars (woohoo) Like most people, I was ready for the big jump........ real money. Nope I didn't invest $20 on an online site, I took the high road. I went to Vegas to play in the $1,000 Seniors WSOP. For a first real money and live tournament, it turned out to be a successful journey, finishing 96th out of 2,701. I then came home and joined an online site which was sponsoring the WSOP and deposited $50. I played a first tournament of $20 and finished first for >$2,700 and the next day I finished 7th in another $20 for >$650. From this point on, I thought I was good............... LOL. Then came the wake up call, after losing thousands (yes I did) I opened an account with PokerStars and then joined the Poker School Online in June 2010. This is where I learned about patience, position and bankroll management. After winning $30 in the first month, I've accumulated my winnings since. I play NLHoldem 99% of the time . I'm still in the learning process, the videos, the live trainings, the books and continuous practicing do make me a better player. Lately I've been reviewing my hands to see what I did wrong and have noticed that even the winning hands have faults...... Being an active contributor to this forum is not easy, as I often get to involve in some threads (no books or videos to learn from on this subject ) The T.I.C. Club and the Drunk Tanks are 2 of my favorite hang out places to relax (thanks Eff) So what have I learned to date: - Patience, patience and patience - Winning a big tournament doesn't mean you know how to play - Variance can really hurt and so can tilt - Luck is also a huge factor and not only for you - Learning is an ongoing task - And the most important is bankroll management Well that's it for now Blog: http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/blogs/post/?id=19775 Forum post: http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/for...ith-great-odds Media Link: http://www.facebook.com/sandtrap777?sk=wall Some other posts: Cash table bankroll management, 50/50's umbup:umbup:

                        Remember Sandtrap, the more views you get, he better your score will be.

                        So try to keep the PSO links this week at the top of your face book page!

                          OK I'm a dumbazz. Don't want to clutter up eff's congratulatory thread anymore than I already did but just noticed that something I said in there I was remiss in not mentioning Trap as being as viable a candidate as anyone here. And that would hold even if the US players were eligible.

                          If eff was first week I think Trap would be a great choice for next representative.

                              Flawed system right there. Might at well write a list of Drunk tank members so we all know whos blog to blow up each week.Absolutely ridiculous that PSO thinks this is a great way to help the forum.
