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
We all hate it when we take what we perceive to be a bad beat. Remember two things about poker,
1st. Although luck does play a role in poker, bad players will always keep returning to play because they think they are just being unlucky when they lose. Yes it is true luck plays a part in poker, and sometimes we all really do just get unlucky, that is variance. What that means is that luck can therefore give us more chances to win. However it is skill and discipline which in the long run will determine the overall amount of money we will earn or lose at the poker table. Over time everyone gets dealt the same cards, how we play our cards will dictate our success or failure at poker.

2nd. Emotions can play a huge part in wither or not we are winning players. We must avoid the trap of getting upset or angry while we play poker. What is commonly called tilt is just our having lost control over our emotions. Emotional play results in poor decisions and lost money. While it is true that from time to time we will all experience tilt. I would remind you that there is no rule which says we are not allowed to take a break from the game until we are back in proper control. We must always remember that the game will still be there waiting for us in thirty minutes or tomorrow afternoon. If you want to become a winning poker player and make money, then you must minimize playing while you are emotional and on tilt.

Just a couple of things for you to think about in your leisure time my friends.
Until next time

Section 2: "Ronin's Bankroll Management Challenge"
The challenge ended in failure the reasons are being looked into right now by three others besides me and I will let you know at a later date what the general consensus happens to be.
G'day mates

I have been putting this post off for too long.
I have busted out in the challenge.
I have gone over the last 14K in hands which I played during the challenge.
I am NOT going to make up any BS excuses.
I am take responsibility up to the fact that I played poorly.
I made mistakes I should not have made.
Chased after rivers, even when I knew I should fold, I even broke the rules by playing while heavily medicated.
The fault lies totally with me, I fracking knew better.
I am apologizing to my partner!!!
If you want I will send you back your share of the buy in amount.

Honor demands no less.
I take full Responsibility for this loss and to my mates I apologize.

Wishing you all the best
be cool

Until later.

Section 3: The daily rant.
G'day Mates
Why is it that people will often blow smoke up my arse rather then tell me the plain truth. I think it is because they do not want to risk hurting my feelings but sometimes I am just not even sure about that aspect. I have been giving this a great deal of thought lately. I have come to think it is less about me and my feelings as it is them and their not wanting to risk a potential conflict by telling the plain, honest, and simple truth.

Many people are cowards or sheep at heart and will instinctually shy away from conflict whenever convenient, those same people are often not likely to follow another's lead rather the lead themselves because they prefer to by lazy and not have to take any responsibility if things do not work out. It is after all not their fault they were not in charge, or they would have done this or that differently, but they was told to do things another way.

Well until next time, be cool.

Section 4: An inspirational Movie Quote
Chris Gardner, from "The Pursuit of Happiness"
"Don't ever let somebody tell you that, you can't do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you, you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period."

This quote tells us to Never give up on our dreams, we must fight our hardest for it.

Section 3 daily rant correction 2nd paragraph after 1st comma.

"those same people are often not likely to lead, but to follow another's lead."

sorry I did not notice that mistake before now.

Not going on tilt is one of the greatest lessons you can learn in any form of gambling. Chasing your losses is always a recipe for disaster and if you can control this you are on the road to becoming a successful gambler

G'day mate

You are most certainly right about that one.
Going on tilt after what I perceive to be a bad beat BS situp hand from the poker site is actually one of my personal leaks.
I MUST always take a break after it happens or risk going on a real major losing swing because I am just ticked off and chasing after my loses.
Good luck at the tables
be cool

Yes, I do same mistakes very often. Sometimes I know that I should fold, and I know that probably I will lose, but I try to catch that little chance and sometimes I do.
I know it's bad way, but it's adrenaline and also, it's ego war. I want to win a battle, cuz I am a man Blink
And there situations, when you know your opponent have a hand which beat you, but pot is too big compared to call size and you call just becose you can't fold. Especially on microlimits.

Ronin, now that you say you're a semi-pro poker player, I really want to know at which stakes you play!
 RoninHarper06/09/2014 19:40:02 GMT
G'day mate

I play at all stake level to be honest.
It really depends on a few factors.
My bankroll and mood being the two main ones.
It also depends on the poker site which I am on at the time.
I am willing to play at a higher level limit in live play then online.
hope this helps your curiousity.
be cool
