My name is Mike and im currently on a gap year due to some leg surgery before heading off to Aston Uni in September, ive been playing various forms of poker for about 2 years i and 9 others have been awarded the "Piranha" level (the lowest unfortunately) of the BadBeat.com Trader Program whereby a whopping $50 will be available every day with the view of turning it into $250 in 30 days.
I wanted to create a blog to document my progress and hopefully keep myself in check and set out some targets and hopefully get advice. The absolute target of this is to become a fully fledged BadBeat trader and turn Pro and not have to do the whole uni thing!
As i am starting on a very small bankroll i will only be playing 0.10/0.20 ring games but i am required to play 40 hours a week! so although $250 doesnt sound much it will be drawn out and will provide interesting hands and learning oppourtunities.
The Piranha program doesnt start untill the 3rd/4th of February so im taking a small break before the road to Poker Proffesionalism begins!
Thanks and ill see you in February.
