Hi. I’m Chris Johnson.
This is my poker site. Welcome, yo.
I’m a recreational player with about 355 hours (total) experience playing poker. I’ve been profitable for a couple of reasons:
- Good variance
- Bad players.
- Good players who played me early on and think I’m still terrible.
I have some goals for 2020, and my next 3,000 hours playing poker. This site is as good of a way to track progress as any. Along the way, I’ll try and build a community, and create some good results.
I’m building this site so I have the tools I want to play like I want to play.
Objective #1: This site will help me build a complete game.
Right now I am a somewhat above average casino player. There are spots I’m pretty good at navigating, and spots where I can just set money on fire (like overbetting the second nuts/bottom straight).
Objective #2: To work in public, meet people and get better.
I want to do this in public. Poker is a hobby of mine, but I believe I can become a tough recreational player and do some damage at the WSOP in 2020. I don’t have delusions of being the next great player, but I want to do this thing as well as I can.
I love working in public because people give me feedback about my game…so I can get better.
Objective #3: To Share What Works With Oher Players
. I’ve found some great resources already and they’ve worked pretty well. I’ve also found an endless supply of seriously crappy books on Amazon that don’t work at all. I think that when something works, we should talk about it.
I want to be able to review that stuff and help people find their way to what works great.
(So far that list is pretty short. Here are my recommendations:
Purposeful Practice for Poker: A great book about studying poker. A lot of what I do in business is laid out in Poker, with premortems/postmortems and a very sensible and sane methodology.
Red Chip Poker, CORE: A $5/week site about the beginning math and concepts for both Cash and regular player.)
