As this is my first writing to Coinflip.com, I'll start by telling you guys something about my history as a poker player and what this blog is going to deal with.
I've been playing for about 4 years online and transferred from MTTs and S&Gs to full ring NL player and now I'm playing mainly short-handed PLO. I still play sunday MTTs and NL cash games every now and then, when I feel like it. I read blogs, forums and watch videos of poker almost daily. Now I feel like it's my turn to give something to poker community as I got something to say and not just bad beat stories.
This September I changed my address to see what Hong Kong looks like. I'm not going to tell you too much about the city itself (even though it's one of the greatest cities in the world). What I got to say is how I'm feeling about transfering from online games to live games and why I believe that it's good for online players to play live poker aswell. Until June I'll be here in East-Asia playing in different games and reporting to Coinflip.com about events from Macau and Hong Kong. As online poker is illegal in Hong Kong and I'll get kicked out from the place I live if I get caught from playing, I'll try to keep away from the online tables and concentrate on live games and taking my game to the next level. When I get back home in June... oh my, it's time to play some online poker. But until that I'll just tell you guys how are things in Asia, how to get locals' money and how playing live can improve your game.
