I hesistently admit I was drawn into poker from the prospects of making a lot of money. I was first introduced to the idea from ilnp's money tracking website he started years back, but I did not start until the launch of LP. I had losely followed the poker talk on TL.net, but had not gained enough interest to give it a shot. I initially started with a free $50 bucks from partpoker, a free 20 from CDpoker, and a free 20 from pokertime. I naively thought I could hop on board the poker train and get rich quick. 2 months later I had gotten nowhere, and my interested faded. Then my poker accounts were locked out becuase apparently poker players are terrorist. I quit for 3 years.

I started again this past summer, and I am comitted to being successful. I am 100k hands into my poker experience, and have grown to enjoy the game, yet admittedly without the prospect of financial gain I would not still be playing - it's just to damn frustrating. Here I am less interested in tracking my poker ups and downs, but rather the impact it will have on my life. I expect this to only be interesting in hindsight.

I don't really like new people but you come off as smart and dedicated with a real goal and order towards things. I think you're going to make and and will follow your career.

You are a lot like me. Right now poker to me is like a high interest savings account to pay off loans but I hope to make it my primary income. I don't really see any other job in this world fitting for me.

Best of luck to you.

Snider said what I was going to say.

Post hands, study and stay dedicated and you will move up. It could take a while but persistence is the name of the game in poker.

Thanks for the encouragement. I am moving up to nl25 at $550, and will drop back down to nl10 if I hit $500. I will probably hit nl50 at $1200, but I will take it one step at a time.

Update: I failed out of poker a really long time ago and never went back. Cheers to those more successful!
