At least for me it is very hard to motivate myself if there is at least slight chance that this may turn out to be a play money i am grinding for.
Think of it this way, the more you grind the more of the total pool of $ in escrow becomes owned by PS. Even if your account balance goes up, in total the rake taken helps out the site. You're helping them fund their legal defense, keep the lights on, etc. At some point, you and PS will have all the money and you can talk about where to meet up and split the proceeds. It will be like the "no gambling" golf club I used to play at; just outside the exit you'd see a line of cars stopped with guys cutting up piles of cash on the hood of someone's Mercedes. That will be you and PokerStars Steve meeting up somewhere in Ireland or Belgium, cutting out stacks of Euros.
Motivated now? Go get all the monies and post graphs for us.
