playing some actual poker for a change

Since I quit poker full time and taught English I've hardly played a hand of poker in the past 15 months.

I have read a couple of books (Raisers Edge, Analytical No Limit Holdem, Poker Perspectives and Playing the Player to name a few) but I haven't been motivated to play or really had the time.

Recently I started my new teaching job and now I have more free time than my previous teaching job.

I  have been playing for about a month now.
Today I had the best session for a long time (in fact maybe ever in terms of big blinds won)
I managed to ship 10bis in a little over 1000 hands for some great run good

So far this month I've played about 55k hands of zoom (mostly 10nl, now 25nl) and have been winning at just over 5bb/100

however my hourly rate is low due to the small stakes I play, and after seeing the great run of form that Sphinx_1 has been having, and from hearing jamiestaples comment about MTT's having a higher hourly I am curious about trying MTTs.

Anyways, peace

Nice to have you back. Finally (and hopefully) some more good stuff to read! Keep it up, bud.

If you don't mind putting in the time for an 8-12 hr day, I highly recommend making the switch. Gl to you

jamiestaples: !Ah, I simply do not have that much free time.. zoom makes more sense at this point in time with my schedule

sandrx1: thanks! I will probably post once a week.

You didn't respond at the rush tables, unless that wasn't you....

Probably wasn't me. I don't play on FTP, only play on Stars

great job! it's tough to jump back in cold after that kind of vacation. 55k hands is not a full sample, of course, but you can get a good sense of how comfortable you feel playing, and winning 5bb is not bad either!
