Hello

I have been playing for about two years now half a year online

Althoguh I make good profit from poker, I do it because I enjoy it, the startegy, and the chess match that is poker. Whenever I play I try to go onto this site becasue I find it helps my play and helps me be more relaxed and follow my intuition

I Normally play 10-30 dollar MTTs and when I do play STTs they are 30 dollars. Play 100 NL ring games Longhanded.

I dont go by a label for a player like TAG. I pride myself on being able to mix up my play according to the table. Still TAG is my "basic" play

I currently live in Maryland but was born in Philly an am an avid Eagles fan hence the nickname.

Neteller is not available in Maryland so I am confined to sites that alow moneybookers as a deposit option and preferably as a withdraw option. I mainly play at Bodog despite their terrible interface. I also play at UB Doyles Room and hopefully Absulute Mainson and Poker.com in the near future.

Sports fan. Mostly play Tennis, I had a good carrear as a junior.

I won't post anymore personall details because I doubt anone cares.

I wish to improve my Bubble and after Bubble tournament play. It has gotten alot beter of late thank you to this forum for that but still needs imporvment. I have yet to win an MTT even though I have gone into the bubble area in the top five stackwise many mnay times.

Thats About it. Good luck to all the new players.
