So my story. I've been playing poker for 8 years now, never really taking it seriously until a year ago. I mean I played online with a few hundred dollar deposits but the 2-3 times I got something going a pos friend of mine would hack my account and degan drain it. (I was young and stupid).
About a year ago I started propping at a small card room in sacramento (where I'm from) and had done pretty well there. I just could never get a br going because my wifes job sucked and I was paying all the bills (3k) a month expenses. in january my wife and I came out to vegas for vacation and the games were so good I ended up staying 14 days out so and decided then I was done propping the ****ty 1,2 100max buy in auto 5$ drop game in sacramento and was ready for vegas.
My wife applied for a job out here, got it along with a nice raise. ( went from 15k a year w/ cali taxes and ass rape medical to 33k salary with awesome hours and 2 raises in the first year.) We got a house to rent in sw vegas, loaded the trunk up and packed the 2 kids (1 and 3 year old girls ,keeps me grounded) and moved our butts here.
Expenses shouldn't be to bad for me I estimate 1000 to 1400 a month should be good to take care of everything and still save a little each month with the wife. The rest will go to br building. My goal is to be playing 5,10 + by the time I'm 29 ( 9/13). I know im already good enough to play it I've just never had the situation to be able to build a substantial br.
I have a little bit of collage and if everything is going good out here I plan on going back in a year after I establish residency.
My bankroll currently sucks and is at 3k. ill have about 6k-10k comming too me over the next couple weeks due to some stuff I have to sell so that will help. I also have been thinking of getting a part time job to help with everything (yea right). I plan on mainly playing 1,2 with random shots at 2,5 when the game and my br permit it. I also be playing random tourneys here and there also to help build. Wife and I also have another 3k in savings for back up funds.
Anymore questions feel free to shoot.
