The Diary of Player X, Volume Four

The Diary of Player X, Volume Four 0001

Player X is a professional poker player who makes his living playing mostly online. The mystery and wild rumors often associated with online play, and people's misconceptions about the lifestyle lead us to decide to do this column on Player X. Make no mistake, Player X is a real player, and these are real results.
Many people in the poker world know Player X, and due to this, and other circumstances, Player X (by his or her choice) will remain anonymous. This person's results are real, however, and we will be able to follow him or her through the reality of being a professional poker player. If I did not know this person, and their reputation, I wouldn't publish this

Lousy day today. Got in some really good games and lost some big pots right off the bat. Started making a partial comeback only to have my internet get really unstable.

Week total: $-1,536


A slightly better day today. 1039 NL hands, +1,613.35. Only 2-tabled all day today as I just didn't have a lot of focus.
