If you don't have to go to your job anymore you need to be putting in 40 hours a week at the tables and building up your roll. I think it would be much better if you failed in KC where you have somewhat of a "safety net" in local family than if you failed in Vegas.

You guys think this kid cares if he fails in Vegas, he's 23 and without a car. That's a pretty big fail in itself. I'd be in a rut too if I was 23 and burdened everyone for a ride all the time. I'd guess he probably doesn't have many friends. Anyone around where I live kinda just got left behind if they always need somebody to come pick them up. Nobody wants to have to take care of a 23 yo with **** they should be able to do on their own. So I wouldn't doubt if that happened to OP. So gl OP you have nothing to lose.


I'm not sure how I want this to turn out for you. I wanted you to succeed, up until the part you said you're playing the 3k event as long as you have enough for the buy in. I mean playing in that tourny would just be stupid, even if you're primarily a HU player. Which makes you sound even more retarded. I don't know. If you end up going, gl at least you should have a good story even if you do end up busto. But like everyone else said, have a way to get home. Having $0 with no food, transportation, shelter and no way
home isn't exactly cool.


The main reason I don't know how I want it to turn out for you is cuz I delayed sleeping last night to read the thread since you were leaving on April 2, but you failed to do that and I read it all for nothing.

Re: Struck in a never ending rut flying to Vegas with net worth to make it happen

I can't believe I just delayed sleep to read this thread. Although it was entertaining I must agree with other guy and say I was rooting for him a lot more til he said that about the WSOP event. That in my opinion was the least intelligent thing op stated. Lol about saving up for a suit. Last month I saw a guy holding up a sign saying $10 to kick me in the nuts. My friends were saying he was wearing a cup, which he swore he wasn't. I took a pic of him and gave him a few bucks. Op, keep in mind that you will be in similar position if you don't run Godly. Did you also consider you could get robbed? stay around your family

+10000000

I have $60,000 saved up and I do not nearly have enough cash to make the move.

The soonest I'd consider going: $100,000 + 6 months living expenses.

$1200 is pure lunacy.

You also claim to have won $30k in the past 2 years playing live. Why not grind for a while in a place where you know you can build a roll, and have a place to sleep at night?

Disagree with this. Sure, chance of success is ... really low. But with $1,200 to your name there's really not a lot to lose either. What's the harm?

Hitting bottom is generally underrated.
