I am a recreational poker player at the moment, playing only when i have the available time as i work shift work on a 4 and 2 schedual switching from nights to days inbetween days off. I work my life away as anyone trying to get ahead in life would. However im noticing that no matter how long and hard I dream of becoming a regular at a casino or home games, i am never actually going to be in a position to do so until i move to a location which allows me to play everyday .. consistantly.
I live approx. 2 and a half hours away from the closest casino that has live dealers and poker tables, and due to my work load i cannot make time to drive down. I find myself in a constant loop of doubt as i can only realistically play online when i have the available time, but im constantly burning through $100 deposits 20180325_204038.jpg

Welcome to CardsChat!
If you search the forum, you'll find lots of excellent advice. From the top of my hat a summmary:
- get grip on BRM; bank roll management
- start with freerolls to build bankroll (if you are patient enough), or deposit
- play micro 1 table SNG 6-max & study until you cruch it
- scale up to 9 and multi table and stakes
- allow for a learning period (cost) in BRM every time you change game type

What 8bod8 suggested. I am in the same boat. Closest live play is 1.5 hour drive. Home duties and 8+ hour work days.
Before I found cardschat I was under the impression that online poker was not available.
I was playing the playmoney pokerstars and wsop. I was researching whether the sites were rigged when I found this site.
I soon after signed up and deposited $25. Now I am at $70 playing .01/.02.
I have a few rules I follow. If I lose three buyins then I am out for the night. If I am 3 three buy ins aheax I generally will leave as well depends on the action.
I just recently started try the next higher stakes.
