Wait, one last thing...

I've got a few questions for the other poker bloggers out there who've suddenly found themselves playing well and building up good-sized bankrolls.

  1. How long have you been playing poker regularly?

  2. How long did it take before you realized that you were crushing the "fish"?

  3. How many "breaks" from poker have you taken over the course of your poker career and what effect did it have on your game?

  4. How many "hiatuses" have you taken from blogging? I only mention this because I've noticed a couple recent hiatuses (PokerNerd and Al).

I'm only asking because I'd like to find out if I'm on-track for my poker career and I tend to use bloggers as the watermark. I mean, the professional players we see on TV have mainly built themselves up by playing in the B&M casinos (some exceptions though such as J-D'ag) and back-room super-secret poker games instead of braving the online waters. Although they may play online now, they "grew" up in a different poker world than most of us have.

I've only really played poker since May and even so, I never took it all that seriously until June. I'd just like to know when I can expect to hit it big or crash and burn.

If you are a poker blogger or successful player and feel like answering any of these questions, I'd appreciate it.

Okay....Christmas vacation begins...now.


Yay! Another comment - this time from Chris over at Sooted Connectors. If you've been reading my blog, you'll already know that I'm slowly building my poker empire one dollar at a time, never taking huge risks, playing small stakes games and trying to keep my head above water.

Well, if you'd like to read about someone going about things in an opposite and far more exciting way - why read about my $5 SNG results when you can read about Chris's $23K win in his first ever $200+ $15 SNG at PartyPoker? - then check out his new site.

New blog means it's real easy to catch up on all his posts...

Just found your blog today, nice work. In response to your questions, you can get an understanding of my successes and failures on my 1st post (new blogger as of today)

You definitely jumped into the poker world more whole-heartedly than I did.
Looks like you've already far surpassed my meager poker accomplishments.

I'll check back to see how your very own poker challenge is coming. 500 SNGs at every level?! Now that's stamina - good luck!

1 yr 1/2.

A years profit convinced me I could beat the game at micro-fishy levels.

Very few breaks.Usually only for family holidays.

I always play much better after a break and should probably take more.

littleacornman -

Thanks for stopping by. It's nice to pick up new readers - especially those who read some of my back posts.

I'm still trying to beat the 1/2 game. If you look at some more recent posts, you'll see that I'm currently trying to win back the 150 BBs that I've lost over the 5000 or so hands played.

It's slow going but I'm slowly getting better. At least I don't lose money as quickly nowadays - I just wish I could win a little more steadily.
