    Explain whenever you feel like it

    Kind of, I had about 18 months off and started back this week, I played most days after work and have something like 3k hands on 10nl Zoom. Will be happy with over 10k this month, then will probably need to kind of regroup and figure out some spots where I don't really know what I'm doing. Hopefully won't play 10nl for too long either but who knows. You?
    played online for around 18 months, started off on full tilt playing 6 max and hu and then moved to pokerstars after seeing how soft the six max scene is. stopped online around a month ago, probably permanently, as im too busy with degree, ecs, applying for investment banking positions. on top of that just enjoying live poker way too much, hate cash, will play a tourney a week if im free

    now that ive played live id actually ask how someone can enjoy sitting alone staring at a screen for hours, its depressing esp when on a downswing, live its just more sociable and fun, which is perfect if youre not trying to make a living from grinding, which i certainly dont

    Meh, I don't grind for that long, after work I aim to play 500 hands relatively accurately with no tilt which is about 50 minutes of mental focus, just as if I read a book or something. Agree about grinding 8 hours or whatever. I dunno I just hate live. If I'm playing to win then it's kind of an awkward social dynamic anyway, being friendly with someone while trying to get their money, and since I'm pretty introverted I find it hard to adjust. Also if I'm playing tight then 30 hands an hour can just mean folding for pretty much an entire session. My friend wants to go to the casino some time soon though, so maybe it will be more fun with someone I know.

    1) don't bet on duff hands
    2) buy a book and learn what good hands are
    3) practice assessing what others might have
    4) be serious and not a drunken idiot and prepared to take a risk

    I am similar. I prefer the Online set up.

    About a week now, but I played a bit before about 2 years ago. I played casually in school so I guess about 10 years if that counts lol.
