Chester talks briefly about himself

ChesterMy name is Chester and I was born in a small town in the countryside of west Britain. My dad was a mechanic and tried to teach both his sons the trade, I didn’t follow in his footsteps and although I like bikes and riding them – I don’t understand much about how it works or how to repair one should it stall in the middle of nowhere. And this is where you would usually find me on my Honda – in the countryside, miles away from civilization. I studied engineering, why? – mostly tradition. Afterwards I had a few office jobs in Bristol before landing this job as writer and editor for gambling sites.

A few details about myself in four points:

When I played poker for the first time at Pokerstars, it was the first time ever that I played that game. I’ve watched a number of movies with such a topic in the script, teaching you that “you don’t play out your cards, you play the opponent”. Well, it’s a different story at the virtual tables, you can’t see anyone’s grin or drops of sweat and you can hide your own tells. It was a perfect setup for me to start methodically researching combinations, betting patterns, chances and formulas and in a short amount of time I started winning a few bucks here and there. And I’d go as far as say it’s actually easy to be relatively successful if you come at it from a business angle and not get caught up in a winning streak’s adrenalin rush or a losing streak’s rage feeling. I’ve also found that knowing thy enemy gets rid of a big portion of the risk involved with such a game of luck and there’s no better tool to find out what kind of players sit at a poker table than Poker Tracker 4. With my guidance anyone can start playing without the usual frustration of getting outsmarted by the old dogs, which is so common in online poker and casino.
