origin of kakis screen name & introduction to poker

Postby MJFX » Wed Jul 04, 2012 1:03 am

i thought it will be interesting to hear from e kakis the stories behind your screen name and how you were introduced to poker.

i will start the ball rolling.
MJFX is a screen name i shared with a fren (outside poker). we both are enthusiasts of playing Mahjong + trading Forex and dats before i picked up poker. Well, he has since moved on to become currency hedge fund manager while i have stopped fx trading completely. (where got time?). the timing coincides with me switching to a new interest - texas holdem. Thats how MJFX comes about.

how did i pick up poker? well, i was in London's Empire casino a few years ago when it just opened. Walked into the cash game room after a tiring session of grinding blackjack. It was quite an exhilarating experience that i just stood there watching a bunch of people siting at a round table, engaging in some pscychological warfare of staring/ bluffing/ splashing the pot accompanying with some cool antics. Was thinking the game is easy to pick up and after some "serious" training of watching late night poker shows, finally played a small weekly tourney. cant rmb how i finish (obv no itm) but i think like all beginners, i enjoyed my very 1st game.

Time to read yours please..

Im a workaholic.I will put everything on the line to earn money :) From morning till night till the next morning.Every morning when i went to school or work,my expression will usually be dim( Not too bright ) since im always busy burning energy .My close friends decide to call me boymalap ( dim person ).

I do play forex and stockmarket for awhile but came to conclusion that its boring and unpredictable.Till that day after a hard 14hrs of work ( bartender ). My collegues decide to play poker at our workplace.I never loved gambling until i played poker for 3 months or so and decide to take the game seriously.By then i knew its a sport that take skills and heart to succeed.

Till today poker will always be my part time job/hobby.

P.S Without poker,ill never ride that bike

I came up with this one cos I prefer a tight play like Hellmuth. JK!

I actually prefer shorthanded & HU, which I'm currently building a bankroll for. Not comfortable enough with low stakes shorthanded or HU so still working my way up playing a wide range of micros.

Learning to play almost anything well HU as well cos I find grinding from a full ring to be ridiculously boring...No offense to anyone, but I think that full rings (whether live or even Zoom) is just so boring!

Awkward moment though when I fell in love with playing other variants too like PLO and the H.O.R.S.E. lot...picked those up after reading about and watching Chip Reese (R.I.P.) and Scotty Nguyen. Good thing it's not my Stars ID =D

Picked up Poker after watching Casino Royale. Have lost more than enough since trying to hit the straight flush like James Bond did. On a lighter note, I have hit it a few times and have stopped drawing so many times ever since.
