1st Long Post

Okay. Time to get a long post out there so I can explain who I am.

My name is Phil (no good poker players named Phil, right?). I am 21 and working as a temp in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. I went to college full time for one year and then began working. Now I am trying to get back into school and just trying to figure out when and where.

I have been on the ups and downs of being a poker addict, so now I am trying to figure out better ways to enjoy poker without it hurting me moneywise, etc. When I flunked out of college (Iowa State, by the way), I began working and really got addicted in a bad way to poker. I stole from family and distanced myself from friends because I convinced myself that the only way for me to "get out" of my situation was to win big in poker. Little poker ego trip issue. That went on for about a year. Then I got caught by the family, got yelled at, went through the grief, etc. Which basically brings me to now.

My focus now is to try to get a general business degree, and then use that to get into some sort of poker business. That way I can get a college degree (big accomplishment in life) and enjoy poker. I have also decided to use better Bankroll management, but that is for a later post.

Now, to end on happier things, I am known in the online poker world as PillyPill. I play on the following sites under that screenname:

-Absolute Poker
-Bodog Poker
-Full Tilt Poker
-Sportsbook.com Poker

So if you see a guy playing on those sites as PillyPill, that would be this guy. Anyways, I will leave it at that for now. If something comes up, I will post again! See ya until then!
