Welcome mobsters, if you are reading this blog for the very first time, I thank you for your initial interest. I think that if you give it a little time, you will find something that will peak your interest.

I am a semi-pro poker player and an author. I am currently working on several projects for publication, and will be discussing them on occasion in this blog. If you are a fan then I warn you, from time to time there will be spoiler book ideas discussed.



Section 1: Poker Tips & Concepts
This should go without ever having to be said but unfortunately many players break this seeming simple rule regularly. It is a simple idea really, For the love of your bankroll do not play poker when drinking alcohol or when using any mind altering drugs.

People it is not cool to get drunk and spew chips about like a moron. You want to get drunk and give other players you chips and money, ok fine. Just stop getting angry when your dumbaSS keeps getting handed to you and you rightfully keep losing hand after hand.

Players are not cheating you! You are playing stupid and making mistake after mistake, Not to mention the more alcohol a player drinks the more tells they seem to have develop. We know you feel that you are playing perfect poker, but you are not.

Watch any drunk person play poker and you will see a player who generally is losing and making an A$ of himself at the same time.

Give it some thought.

Until next time.

Section 2: "Ronin's Bankroll Management Challenge"
Well this section is going to be familiar to the forum regulars as I have been running this section for awhile in the forums, It is about the single most important skill a poker player must have in their arsenal in order to be a successful winning player.

Bankroll Management has been estimated to be the single most neglected poker skill by almost 95% of all players. Countless books have been written on the subject, and yet most players most often just ignore the rules of proper bankroll management.

I too fall into this trap at times.

This section is intended to show how proper bankroll management can ensure that and good poker player who approaches his bankroll and poker play from a solid and disciplined position can succeed.
It also is intended to help me to remain focus and discipline in my own bankroll quest to succeed.

Week 5 Update:
I started the week off with little or no desire to play poker at all. I believe this is because I was feeling both depressed and even overwhelmed at the monumental task of rebuilding my bankroll from my previous losses. The week was a grind and I did increase my bankroll from just $12 to slightly more than $38.
So in week five I was able to triple my meager bankroll and start the climb back up into the light. Still have a long way to go.
Until later.

Section 3: The daily rant
Today's rant will be the lyrics to the Phil Collins song "In The Air Tonight". This song fits my current mood right now as I am very ticked off at a supposed friend who has tried to blade me in the back.
Well you can tell ev'ryone I'm a damned disgrace
(Slander)Drag my name all over the place.
I don't care anymore.
You can tell ev'rybody 'bout the state I'm in
You won't catch me crying 'cos I just can't win.
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore

I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play.

'Cos I've been talking to the people that you call your friends
And it seems to me there's a means to an end.
They don't care anymore.
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind.
I don't care anymore I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
We never played by the same rules anyway.

I won't be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore

Well, I don't care now what you say
'Cos ev'ry day I'm feeling fine with myself
And I don't care now what you say
Hey I'll do alright by myself
'Cos I know.

'Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face 'cos you held all the cards.
I don't care anymore.
And I really ain't bothered what you think of me
'Cos all I want of you is just to let me be.
I don't care anymore D'you hear? I don't care no more

I don't care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway.

I won't be there no more
So get out of my way.
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore
D'you hear? I don't care anymore
I don't care no more
You listening? I don't care no more
No more
You know I don't care no more
no more no more no more....
Well until next time, be cool.

I think you are correct in saying never to play when you have had a drink. Everytime i have played drunk, it was like playing on permanent tilt and nearly every decision was a poor one

G'day mates

I am pleased to read that someone has at least been getting something positive from the things I have been writing. I have tried to make the tips and concepts section relevant with explanations as to why I have made certain statements.
Wishing you all the best.
Be cool

Ronin Smile
