  • Successful but undisciplined player looking to learn!

    Hi guys, I'm spand42 from the UK and I'm wanting to eliminate bad habits and share my thoughts and progress with the online community.

    My brief story: I've been playing poker since 2010 with various levels of dedication. I've only ever played with micro/small bankrolls but have had some significant tourney successes - including a couple of MTT victories with 3K+ players, winning the Daily Double Jackpot on Full Tilt, final tabling a GUKPT live event and others.

    However each time I've felt like I'm the next Phil Ivey - moved to way too high stakes and blown most/all of it chasing the dream.

    I've started again about a month ago with a bankroll of $30, have increased this significantly, with a significant win coming 30th in the recent Micro Millions Main Event on Full Tilt - although I took out most of this for Christmas purposes!

    However I am wary of previous mistakes I have made and my friends have recommended joining an online community to bounce ideas with.

    Sorry for the life story - let's improve together at the tables!
