Hi everyone

Just joined the forum so I thought it would be polite to introduce myself.

I am a 24 year old male, I run a couple of my own businesses (primarily dealing in recruitment consulting and events) and am also currently studying for my Masters degree in the UK.

I picked up poker (NL Texas Hold'em) at the Crown Casino in Melbourne when I lived there about 4 years ago. I moved to the UK in 2005 and currently play semi-professionally at the Empire and Grosvenor Victoria casinos in London, approximately 4 nights a week. My poker "career" started only about 9 months ago - i.e. I started maintaining a bankroll and paid more attention to studying the game by reading forums and books, and watching videos etc. I play at GBP 1/2 and 2/4, with max buy-in of GBP 600. So far I have played mainly live and I limit myself to cash games only - although admittedly tournaments are more glamorous, my opinion is that it is not real poker (no offence to tournament players here). I just feel that real, skilled poker ought to be played after the flop, and with deep stacks.

I am hoping to learn and improve and judging by the quality of some of the posts I have read here, there are some seriously good players here and I have much to learn.

To be honest, before discovering this forum I had no idea that the poker community in Singapore was so large. I had a sense that the game was getting very popular but I didn't expect to see a fully thriving and blossoming community.

Hope to get to know some of you guys by joining some home games although your games will probably be much harder than at the casino!

welcome to pokerkaki forum!!!
hehehe, man you should consider playing online too, the profit can be way much more such you can play more tables, the hands come in faster like 70-100 per hour on each table as compared to live which is only 30-50? The rake is also lesser online and there's much value to be found in forms like rakeback, promotions, VIP stuffs etc

good luck on the tables~
