Hey everybody. My name is Andrew and Im a 28yo super turbo grinder. Ive been a profitable online player for about 5 years, made the majority of my income from poker for the past 4 and have played as my sole profession for 3. I played the 9man supers on FT up until BF and had finally moved up to the midstakes in late March.
Since BF Ive been tentatively planning to move out of the US. I was basically ready to pack my bags once I got my FT roll back, but that was not to be. Ive been grinding on Merge since late April. Id considered sticking it out in the US and staying on Merge but the regged up games and cashout and DOJ issues have made that less attractive.
If i somehow i could have every dollar i have on Carbon (and processing withdrawls) wired to me tomorrow, Id have just enough to move and prob would. But obv thats not gonna happen. Right now my realistic time frame for leaving is mid December. The spot Ive decided on is Rosarito Beach in Mexico. Its insanely cheap, close to my family in Los Angesles, and most importantly outside of the United States
My realistic time frame for leaving is mid December. I have a check I requested 5 weeks ago thatll hopefully be here within 3 weeks. Then ill request another max check and will be able to leave once it gets here, is deposited and doesnt bounce.
That brings me to my goals for this month. If I can somehow have a sick month and make like 6k+, ill prob just bite the bullet and pay a bunch of vig to trade for a bank xfer. If that happens (and assuming my Sept. 1 check is here by then) Id be able to gtfo in mid november.
So Ill be grinding $5-10 Merge STs like mad all month with the occasional 8.20 HU super turbo mixed in. I find that play HU in the morning (1230ish) before my 6man sessions helps my brain warm up. Playing HU the last month or so has also really helped out my overall game. Also listening to LivB commentate the WSOP livestream made me start looking at postflop poker in ways I never had before.
Just gonna do graph updates every 3 days; Im trying hard to not focus on results this month. I welcome all questions and comments.
Also if you want a good laugh give my old PG&C fail thread a look.(Just dont bump it plz) Come to think of it this April was a horrible ****ing month all around.
