Should be looking at a 10k to 15k roll by June depending on how poker goes in the meantime.. I wanna be ready br wise for 2,5 for the series and this should help greatly.

Better not post in the Hooker Hunting thread and the wifey might see it.

Actually, probably not even a good idea to open that thread or it'll be marked as "read". Could lead to an awkward conversation.

Couple fairly standard spots (liveactionpro folds) and a 3 barrel bluff took me to the cleaners.
i read the last few pages, and the above is stupid

why are you trying tripple barrel donkeys at 1/2? if any of there cards hit the board, they call, they dont try and put you on a hand, they just check call anything, so save your money for thin value bets against these stations and avoid the good players!

get onto the 2/5 game asap, and watch the monies come rolling in.

im now going to start reading the 50 page thread, and see if i look like a total d1ck after writing this.

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

figured its time for an update seeing how i haven't done one in over a week. (lazy i know). This week has been exactly what i needed poker wise. Im up about 1100bb for the week( sat-fri) over 21 hours played. Ive been playing pretty good and the few times i got in crappy situations i sucked out on the river which is always nice. :-). Its starting to get pretty hot here which is kick ass, Ive always enjoyed the hot weather although idk how i'll feel about that when it gets to 115 in a couple months. working on getting my ass in shape for when summer rolls around. Ill tell ya sitting around a poker table 30+ hours a week cant do havoc on your body. Before i started my prop job last year i was about 190ish and in great shape, fast forward a year and a half later and im right around 225 and pretty out of shape, Been going to the gym regularly so that will herlp but would love to find a local regular bball game. If anybody knows of one going on please shoot me a pm.

My moms coming into town for a week tomorrow which will be nice to have her around to visit with and it should allow me to put in longer sessions and even play during the day possibly. I'm going to shoot for a 45+ hour week while she is here, knowing my lazy ass though it ill probably be around 38ish.

I was going to go over some hands from the week but honestly nothing was overly interesting in regards to tough spots. I made a ******ed play and got super lucky but that ones a bit embarrassing so maybe ill keep it to myself lol. Ill start doing daily updates again so this thread can stay interesting. If anybody is in town on Monday and want to go see Calivin Harris at Xs shoot me a pm.

Ok I'm done with this pure rambling nonsense post. I'm heading out to the strip to see if the UFC fight is airing at any of the sports books then ill put in a nice session at either venetian or bellagio.

The Paypal debit card is great. It's especially good to have it linked to a backup account and you can put deposits on hotels and pay for hotels with it. I had a dispute at Foxwoods one time they charged me for an extra night. They were totally in the wrong. If I had paid on a bank debit or credit card it would have been much more of a hassle to get it reversed because I would have had to deal with the hotel. I made one call to hotel and one call to paypal. Paypal reversed the charges immediately refunded me and gave the hotel like 30 days or something to acknowlede it. They never challenged it and charge dropped off.

Uh, let's see - he was +1100 big blinds, or $2200 over 21 hours of play last week. That's >$100/hr. Even with a couple of break even weeks before this he would still have to be in the $40/hr range.
