Having scrolled through the diaries for the past 6 months, I feel in the mood to make my own.

I have taken great inspiration from others who have posted, not leaving any details out and generally posting their honest thoughts and feelings.

No one on here will know me so a brief introduction.  

My name is Ash (may post full name later) and I live in Preston in the NW. I am 24 years old and currently work as a manager for an Accident Management company with poker on the side.

I think starting this diary will help me tremendously both through interaction with others on this forum and by me describing my feelings on a day to day basis (mostly involving pokers)

I have many degen stories which may come to light later on but I have moved on from there and now go about life in general with a level head (i think).  

i have a bankroll which is comfortable for 1/2, but have no intention whatsoever at the moment to grind for a living (hopefull y in the future).

I mainly play live cash either at any of the MAnchester casinos or private games.

I also have a streak of sports betting in me which maybe i should stop to concentrate fully on poker

Thanks for reading and hope to entertain all readers in the coming weeks and months!

A little bit about me

I was always a straight A student in school and came out with mainly A's and B's. 

It was when i went to college that I found poker and my days were spent in the canteen playing £1 games writing down who owed what to who as we were on camera. 

I played my first tournaments in Rileys snooker club and proceeded to play there for a good year, eventually becoming one of the better players through pure aggresive play.

I started university in Sep 2007 to study for a chemistry degree.  This is where poker took over my life and not in the good way.  I blew the best part of £15k in one year and by the end of the first year found myself in some deep trouble.

At uni, I played on stars and played 3/6 with one or two buy ins, building it up and losing it all again.  Had i known about BRM maybe i'd be doing this poker thing professionally.

The sickest thing i ever did was play in a freerool on stars, won a $11 tournament ticket. PLayed a $11 180 SNG and won roughly $550.  With that, i went straight onto the cash tables and proceeded to win just over $11,000 in the space of an hour simply by moving up stakes where i had one full buy in.  This came to a crashing halt when i sat on a 50/100 table i think and lost the lost with KK where i made a set and the other player made a flush. 

I took two years out from the game as i was degening out of control, got myself a job, quit uni and concentrated on paying back what I owed to numerous banks, credit card companies and friends.

Earning £1200 a month and having only £200 after paying my debts, i realised the value of money.

Two years ago, i enrolled back to university to study for a Maths degree, i now have 2 yyears remaining and hopefully will complete it.

I have started playing poker again semi seriously over the last 18 months and have my bankroll at approx £5000.  This is not my life roll and is completely seperate from everything.

The plan is to finish my degree, play pokers atleast 4 times a week and build a bankroll big enough to move up stakes and take it from there.

Gulp.

Good luck you!

As you may, or may not, have noticed, there is quite a debate raging about that match tonight on "tikay Tips".

So far, we've had recommends for Wigan, Wigan DNB, Wigan with a start, & Arsenal with a handicap!

Swerve incoming......

I note your £5k "poker 'roll", is your betting & punting 'roll seperate from that?
