Ahem. Who am I and why should you read this blog? Let me start with who I am not...
- I am not a gambling pro
- I have never won the World Series of Poker
- I am not a math wiz (I hate math)
- I do not particularly like Vegas
Good question, thank you for asking. Let me tell you more about myself...
- I am a recreational gambler. A novice at best.
- The best I ever did in Vegas was walking away after having lost *only* $27
- I’ve been to Vegas several times where I didn’t lose any money because I never placed a bet
- I’m bad with numbers
- I don’t particularly like to gamble
What? You don’t like to gamble? Again, then why this blog?
I don’t like to gamble when it comes to my hard-earned money. I don’t have a lot of it. Remember I’m the Poorman? I want to educate myself to the point where I know enough about the different games so that I’m not “gambling” but rather taking an educated, calculated risk.
Whoa now, you just said “calculated.” Will I need to be a walking calculator to understand what you will be blogging about? I thought you hated math.
I do, I do. When I say “calculated” I mean I’ll know the best and the worse bets to make. And that’s really all you need to know. Educate yourself about the best ways to bet, the different ways to bet, and what not to bet, and you’re good as gold. There’s no need to clutter your mind with percentages and odds and such.
So why a blog? I want to document my transformation from a novice gambler who always loses money, to an intermediate/advanced player who has learned how to manage risk and regularly walks away a net winner. Sound intriguing? Doubtful it will work? Think YOU might be able to learn something to improve your game? If any of those reasons apply, THAT is why you should read this blog.
