What’s up RIO, it’s been a while since I’ve been active on here, and since I updated my last blog, but after getting shipped a free month of Elite by RIO, I thought it might be time to get active in the community again, and give something back to all the great people here. Without these forums, I would never have met Patrick (freenachos) and wouldn’t be able to start a blog with such an ambitious aim.
Since I left my last blog, I took a few months off poker, ended a long term relationship which resulted in moving back to Australia, tried a proper job, quit said job and began kitesurfing with the aim of qualifying for the 2024 Olympics in the new ‘Formula Kite’ division. Aaaand I also started crushing Ignition in the meantime (RIP failed 500nl shot).
So what’s this blog going to be about? Mostly I’m going to be writing about my journey to being able to live life as I want, choosing how I get to spend my time, with whom I spend time with, and where I spend time. As I was working in a 9-5 for a short period of time last year, I came to the conclusion that I need to put my freedom and independence above everything else, and we are all extremely lucky to have poker to give us that opportunity. I also want to use this blog to offer some advice for people who are still struggling to beat the micros, after I broke even at those stakes for over 500k hands.
