Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

Hope you use your life experiences as motivation to never go broke and properly manage your bankroll and life style.
Bring s homeless drug addict must've been terrible. If you use that as motivation moving forward along with proper life and $$ management then you'll be chilling.
I went broke multiple times in life , and the older you get the worse it feels when that happens. The last time I went broke was Black Friday and I hustled my ass off to get back up and never turned back. Being broke was my motivation to be successful. Gl kid

Also I don't know your skills in poker, you need to know very well if you're playing good or bad. Don't be a fool thinking you are a good player when you're actually not.

"Poker is a like sex, everybody thinks they are better than they actually are."

PS. Sorry if I made any english mistake, it's my primary language.
Have already taken my GED and passed, I start my first online classes on the 12th.

I'm honest about my game, and know I have much to learn, although I also believe I am a winning player. I dropped from 5/5- 5/10 where I was a break even player my first year, to 1/2-1/3 and am now a small winning player at those stakes. I don't make enough to support myself with poker, which is why I focus heavily on managing my BR.

I also don't have housing costs at the moment. I am staying with a very good friend of mine who's allowing me to clean and take care of their house in exchange.

They also back me in BlackJack occasionally, which again has been a supplemental income for my poker.

Point is, smart people who are good with words are huge failures if they're making $15/hr. I make more than that and AM a huge failure.
Hourly wage seems like an arbitrary metric when determining success and failure.

Please tell me you're counting cards and have a huge bankroll to account for the variance.

Yes I am, and I only play in the pit if I'm being staked.

GL. Based on your opening, this adventure will be the easy.

Make some solid friends and watch out for the angle shooters.

As I tell my kids...be smart.

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

i remember when i was young woman in the poker world, lost and loved drugs sex and de-genning. I long for the good old days. Since my sex change operation it's just not the same anymore. What i'm trying to say is do whatever u want, don't adhere to any plan or path or rules, just live. If you want to get fcked up and blow 30 large in craps do it. It doesn't matter about the money all these years later, but it happened. If you want to have sex with russell westbrook, go play 5-10 and seduce him. Just make sure to let him know i want 2ND.

anyways, best of luck. U are a great writer and have an even better ass. I hope u win all the money. your friend, dana.

Maybe it's the presentation that is generating all the traffic, not the fact that I'm a girl

All I'm saying lol

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

Ok since no one else has said it I'm going to. The only reason these guys all of a sudden offering help and never to the other 1000's of guys who come in LVL with the same agenda is cause they are just trying to get into your paints. It will start off with offerings to start putting you in cash games or tournies, yada yada yada and then when you turn there sexual advance down they will make up rumors about you and so forth. Just saying.

If a guy posted this then 95%+ of the replies would be that this is the worst idea ever. Lost Weekend is spot on.

According to who?

I won't leave LV until I want to, even if I wind up sleeping outside I'm really not sweating it. The weather is nice, so it could be worse. For example, I could an old man. Already winning apparently just bc I'm a chick.
