I actually can't think of a worse thing to say. Why say things in a forum that would get your teeth knocked out irl. Just ****ing terrible
Cause there trying to let her know, everyone is telling this gal to go at something with a success rate of less than 1%.

Just because I'm not afraid to fail, doesn't make it a bad idea.

Lets grow up and stop making it a gender issue issue, k thx.

Will not feed into anymore gender based bias.

Currently watching Avengers Age of Ultron, it could be worse, I could have doomed the world to be blown up. So there's that

Yea there are grinders that fail as well as grinders that succeed, and on both sides there are MANY untold stories for sure.

If fear is allowed to control your life, your decisions, and break you down, that is really losing.

Just saying.
I freaking hate it when people try to get into my paints...

Omaha hi/lo full ring limit is also a great idea either 4/8 or 8/16 to start with the eventual goal of 15/30 at the Venetian. Both lower limits run regularly at Orleans and Venetian. Bankroll requirements are actually lower.

Either way GL

Thank you, but I don't usually play limit and would need a larger bankroll in order to compensate for not being as well versed in the PLO8.

I have studied the game but I'm not at a point where I believe I would be able to grind that game, I'd rather stick to NLH and PLO if any game.

I do appreciate the advice, but with my current circumstances I would need coaching in order to play that game lol

Also I'm sorry if I'm late to the party and this is a sore subject but who's Brandi? A few people mentioned her..someone said they were reading about her? Just curious on the story? I'm relatively new to the forum so maybe I missed it.

There ARE gender issues though. Hence why some guys (rightfully) are saying they'd get destroyed on here posting the same type of history/plan. I don't think they're bashing you cause of your gender but just being real and you're perceiving it as "bias" cause it's not what you want to hear.
Vegas was built to devour kids with your mindset. "Wiser than your years" BS people are writing just makes it all the more likely imo.
Good luck but really I think you have 6 months, best case scenario, before you're leading a dark life there.

One easy way around this to get you some practice in mixed games is a HORSE tourney. It's all limit and teaches you several different games. They have one at Orleans every Sunday night it's like a Hundo bucks.

I usually play limit Omaha when I'm hammered so I lose less money but it's pretty fun too. PLO is actually the worst variance game for bankroll because it's not split pot and draw based. PLO is a lot less spewy imo

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

I don't get why people are so caught up in a possible fail. Some of the most successful people in the world have failed many times over. Thomas Edison is a good example. And she has already stated that she could not get any lower than where she came from. It has already made her a stronger individual and just being where she is defines some success.

Enjoy/embrace YOUR journey and do not let anyone tell you otherwise. If it ends in a way that some feel is a fail so be it. I am guessing your definition is much different than theirs and really that is all that counts! You have already demonstrated that you have more strength and determination than most. Thanks for sharing your story.

Anyone doing some happy go lucky Blog online could get seriously lower than where they came from.

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

There's no such thing as failure/recession for women in Vegas (*who aren't addicted to meth, or morbidly obese). There's millions of lonely men with a bankroll in this town that will always finance a young woman. I have a friend that makes 2000-2500 a weekend bartending and she has a guy that pays her rent, one that pays for her 2014 5 Series BMW, and another who takes care of the wardrobe.

Not saying that she should go find 3 sugar daddies to sleep with but if worse comes to worse, but she seems to have the communication skills necessary to never have to be broke again in this town. OP has a lot of potential life run-good going forward from my perspective.

I had to look it up myself. Google "Brandi Hawbaker" and "Brandi Hawbaker David Sklansky" and you should find plenty of info and a few nice pictures. Her life seems like it would make for the greatest Martin Scorsese picture of all time. Epic rise to greatness followed by epic self destruction that was probably always going to happen given her personality.

With that said, it seems like there are lots of details that took place that google didn't bring up. find for you. It also seems like many threads about her were deleted on 2+2. Not even sure what her username was here. If anyone else has a good TL;DR or summary I'd love to hear it.

I'm pretty sure Thomas Edison had a better plan.
