2015 Plans

Well here we are again ... another year ... another dollar?

Like most of my poker playing years last year seemed to be about building from a small start to see if I can get to the point where I can win big.

However as with most of my years I end up protecting my profit and never really staking enough to win big ... being content with small profits.

Anyway I ended up only £350 ish in profit but my highest buy in was $3 so what did I expect.

This year I am determined to put that £350 to use in live tournaments and still intend to go to a GUKPT or UKIPT event at some point.

So as for this year ...

Well I have predominantly decided to play at PokerStars. There are a couple of reasons for this:

Due to new UK regulations surrounding internet poker I am unable to play on PartyPoker.fr from the UK.

... and ...

I want to see what end of year bonus I can achieve believing that I could have added a sizable amount to last years profit given the amount of games I played.

However on starting the year it is apparent that it is harder to win profit on PokerStars than on PartyPoker.fr.

I think this is because the level of play is higher but also the choice of games available leads to higher variance. PokerStars have been very clever with their SnG selections I am sure with the intention of taking away some of the advantage from better players through poker game formats.

So I think January will be about identifying my most profitable games ... oh and actively learning to improve my own poker level to be able to compete.

Until next time

Keep it Tight
