Re: Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

Man, you are my idol. You are a very good human. Very few rich people donate as generously as you do. 75% of profits and 400k wow. Can I ask you a personal question. What is your personal view on charity? Should I donate x% of my income to charities if don't own a home myself? What if I would like to buy a house for parents first? What do think of the idea to provide first for family, parents and only then donate to others? When have you started donating? Does it add more motivation to study and play more?

Re: Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

Thanks for the kind words. 66.6% of profits though I've started donating approximately 2 years ago.
Imo you definetely should donate some % even if you dont own a house, you can start donating small % gradually increasing it over time and you can simultaneously work for both goals - house for you/parents and helping humans/other species in need aroung the globe at the same time and your motivation very likely will improve substantially. For example 50% of your profits goes into life expenses, 40% goes to savings for house for you/parents and 10% goes to charities etc. My main motivation for life is to make this world at least tiny bit better during my lifetime and fighting all the evil in this world as effective as i can.
ps: i dont own a house too

Re: Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

There is a lot of events coming up in next 2 month that i need to attend and i want to work on my game quite hard, simultaneously working on coachings for http://www.bitb-staking.com/ Because of that i will be playing only on Tuesdays + Sundays. But after that in December + January i'm planning to do mini-marathon and grind 56 days out of 60 total (my personal record for 60-day period).

1. Trying to start at 4.30-4.55pm CET, late regging 215$ BB, 109$ 6max on 888, 109E Big on PS.fr etc. If arent capable doing that, starting at 6.30-6.55pm CET.
Ending sessions with Big215 as last non-turbo tournament on Monday-Saturday and trying to grind full schedule of 15-16h on Tuesdays-Wednesdays-Thursdays. Sunday depends since i'm trying to start a session as early as possible and comfortable, most often last non-turbo tournament i'm regging is 55$ Sunday stack that i'm late-regging around 1am CET.

2.I'm not answering questions like that

Re: Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

Yesterday finished about breakeven, today showed small profit i believe:

Coaching stuff goes very well as well as improving my game significantly in a week to week comparsion. Didnt sleep enough lately though, will improve on that in the next couple of weeks
Tomorrow my GFs birthday, will grind Wednesday and after that 4days holiday gl everyone!

Can I ask you how many hours do you spend per week studying your own game? What does your usual day look like? Do you exercise? Do you cook?

Trying as much as i can. For last couple of months its around 15h a week on avg i think + 20h spending preparing for coachings which helps as well.
Depends on a day, i'm going to the gym 3 times a week, after that i'm either grind or studying/preparing for coachings and have 0.7-0.8 avg day off a week.
My gf cooks for me everything
