I started in March 2008 and did know zip of poker, but just liked the game and gave it a try. I deposeted 3 times in the beginning (after going broke twice) for the total amount of $400 .
So after cashing out the $2K, I look at a total win of $1600 .
And still have a decent roll of $3700 (after cashing in the OFC yesterday).
That will be enough to play at the stakes that I do now, without the risk to loose big at the higher stakes.
I just like the game a lot, and not planning to try to moove up to gain some more cash. I think that`s not possible for me caus I don`t do a lot of reading pokerbooks or playing with a HUD and analysing my game and leaks.
I just play for the fun of it and trying to make some money. Got a decent job so I don`t have to be afraid of loosing little (if that would happen to me some day).
The only way I improved my game was to join CC ,reading a lot of posts in the handanalyses, and some great stuff that other members posted here, sharing their knowledge of the game.
Also playing against better players then myself in the CC-games, what improved my game so much!
So therefor I say thanks CC and members for making it possible even to win some money, instead of being a donating player for others .
