I don't know what I intend to do with this column, or how long I intend on writing it. We'll see how many views it gets over time. I actually considered scrapping the idea altogether when it dawned on me just how much time I spend on blockchain.poker, time I should instead be spending on pursuing more worthwhile goals.
But I am who I am, and we'll see how long it takes before I inevitably lose my bankroll. Like I said, I'm a gambler at heart, and I've been betting on one thing or another for most of my life. But I will say that playing on a site like blockchain.poker makes other gambling sites look like a joke. The amount of control you have over your money is refreshing. No credit card fees when making a deposit. No need to wait for an approval when withdrawing. It's a perfect example of what Bitcoin Cash can enable.
Previously I intended to keep track of hands played, my bankroll, tournaments entered, and tournaments finishing in the money, but I'm going to have to keep it simple and only include the first two statistics. I've been doing fairly well in tournaments but since the site doesn't keep track of my tournament play for me, I've kind of lost track of how many I've entered. Also, if you want to see what a degenerate I am, assume a play rate of about 100 hands/hour to get an idea of how many hours I've spent playing poker since the last time.
Poker Fund: 2.580 BCH (+1.779 BCH)
