Poker Blogger - Mike
My name on the forum is Snickers99 and I live in Pittsburgh,
PA. I'm in my early 40's and started playing poker in August
of 2004, starting out in Limit and switching to No Limit
about 2 years later. Unlike all these young kids and their
multi-tabling 6, 8, 10 tables for 15 hours a day, I'm lucky
if I can two-table for 2 or 3 hours a week. Most weeks,
I don't even get a chance to play at all. So although I've
been playing for a couple years, I really don't have that
many hands as far as experience (about 26k of Limit and
34k of NL) and am a micro-limit player.
I'm writing my blog to chart my course as I have finally
decided to become serious about poker. I've been a break
even player at best at NL (loser overall in Limit) and want
to start really learning the game. I think I have the basics,
but need help in getting to the next step. Fellow forum
member Ugignadl (Ugi to you and me) has offered to help.
I'm hoping my blog will be useful to others who are in the
same position...have a love of the game, but just can't
seem to win.

"My name is Jaron, I am a 25 year old college student
studying Music Composition. I started playing online poker
seriously during the summer of 2007, and started blogging
summer of 2008. Since 2007, I've turned a $5 freeroll win
into a $1k+ bankroll, and this blog will follow along the
ups and downs of my progress thereafter. I will try to post
interesting hands, but mostly my blog will reflect my mental

My forum name is Ugignadl, Ugi for short and I'm Glen in
real life. My blog began as a poker-oriented discussion
but then turned into a travel diary for some days. I'm back
in Aussieland for the time being, but expect to travel a
lot more in the future. The blog is in dire need of some
love, and I hope to provide with both posts on a poker level
and on a personal level.
Poker Blogger - Bigloser2448
I'm the guy who never thought in
a million years I'd ever have a blog. I'm a regular guy
in my upper 30's. I have a wonderful wife of 14 years and
two great kids, one of each. I started playing poker online
last November and it has been an pretty incredible ride.
You see, I have never deposited any money on any Poker Site.
I started my bankroll with a $4 cash in a 12,000 player
Freeroll on PokerStars. I gained the "skills" to
outlast over 11,000 players in that tournament mostly from
Phil Gordon's Little Green Book of NLHE. But doing well
in freerolls is completely different from playing with real
money, even at the microstakes level, as I soon found out.
In the couple of days following that freeroll, I decided to search for a Poker Forum to see if I could learn enough to at least not lose my big (LOL) bankroll of $4. I found Feltpoker.com and the rest is history. Or at least is where my blog begins. I figured if I can learn enough to not only hold onto my 1st $4, maybe others might want to read about my journey along the way.
