Do NOT do so if it'll take precious time away from you rolling in your limo with the groupie biatches, snorting coke from their ass cracks while throwing spare Benjamins out the window for the peasants ...

No bragging about having sex with a hooker though. Bragging about having sex with a Vegas hooker is like bragging about getting condiments at McDonald's.

OP, why not take a bus/hitchhike to LA, grind the 1/2 at commerce? It's $40 max buy, so with $800 you'll have 20 max buy-ins

Because OP isn't even in LV, let alone the western half of the states.

Without self-control, he'll go through those 20 buy-ins in about a half an hour. I've played there and it's crazy, but is $40 really the max because I thought we could buy in for more and people were buying in for $40 as a custom.

The $40 game is the worst game ever!!!! Played it once about 4 years ago and its an all in fest... might as well call it all in or fold...... even the $100 $1/$2 is garbage as well as the $200 $2/$5 game. Commerce has horrible buy in structures for low stakes poker, and usually I end up at the bike for $2/$3 with $300 buy in, or the garden with $3/$5 $300

call me a dewy-eyed ingenue, but I'm still a believer. 2 main reasons:

1. All the trash talking itt, i would not be down to give you jokers session-by-session updates either. Im not saying said trash talking is unreasonable, just that i would be waiting till i had a few sessions under my belt before throwing myself to the lions.

2. If this were a level, it would be trivially easy to continue it and make up session updates. In fact, given the likely demands on his time playing full time in vegas and trying to grow his roll, updates are more likely if this is fake than if its real.

I'm a believer too. When you start threads like these sometimes you don't really know what you're getting yourself into. Unless you like writing, it's a pain in the ass to write TRs, especially when you're away from home. Plus the trolls and haters can really pile on and hinder your motivation.

Don't be fooled Shawn, you owe people in this thread nothing. Do what you want, **** the rest.

I agree that having to constantly prove trip reports in a thread like this would be difficult and probably the last thing you would want to do if you were running bad but there have been like 2 updates so it is too soon to get tired of it.

Also, poker takes lots of discipline and being lazy 2 posts into a thread is pretty much a sign of this guys commitment level to things. If this is even real, I doubt any updates will be any good and will end very soon if they even make it on here ever.

I find it hilarious that all this guy posts are LONG excuses asking for more time without any details.

totally not true, which u would know if u read my blog like 445,382 others have. its world famous. im back up to $1400 from $1200 2 weeks ago and ill never go broke, although im mostly playing all my poker online for a little while.

I agree with this. If Shawn doesn't have enough discipline/energy to post steady updates then there is a zero percent chance he has enough discipline/energy to be successful at the tables. This thread deserves cynicism, the plan was born to fail.

If you're not the kind of person that is motivated by negativity then you(Shawn) are destined to be a loser. Don't post another excuse for a lack of an update. Give a real, honest, update, not for the people following this thread, but for yourself. Embrace reality, use this thread as a way to keep yourself accountable. GL, if you need it, you are ****ed!!!!

I believe in you buddy. There's no way anyone could be so lame as to troll at the 2+2 best poker forum ever!

I don't think lack of commitment to posting shows a lack of commitment to poker and seriously, if he were on here all the time, people would be saying it shows a lack of commitment to poker.

Not that I'm one, but here's something for all you believers out there.

though it seems less and less likely that we are going to hear anything further from shawn, the two posts above are lame sophistry.

Yes, it takes a certain amount of commitment and dedication to post regularly in a thread on 2p2. And yes, that amount is considerably less than it takes to play poker successfully on a full time basis.

However, this presupposes that posting here is or should be a priority for him. IMO, posting updates on 2p2 should be somewhere slightly above making time to rub one out and somewhere slightly below making time to keep himself regular.

Also, the idea that you're somehow entitled to updates at all, let alone updates on a schedule that you determine, is absurd. This guy owes you nothing.

^^^ this is not true. If you start a thread implying that you will update people on your story you should follow through.

I have considered doing a thread on my low stakes grinding in Vegas (and other locations) but I have decided not to bc I know I will not want to keep up with timely updates. Although my decision could change in the future. I feel compelled to start a thread everytime I run bad (to seek support and keep myself in check) and whenever I have a crazy story that I want to share but I am concerned that it will out me at the tables and will hurt my action. A low profile is a key to my game.

If u don't plan on updates, either don't start the thread to begin with or kill it now by saying no more updates coming.

Let's see if the 48 hours promise holds true.

Did I infer he owed me anything? If you don't think that forcing himself(Shawn) to do regular updates wouldn't help organize thoughts and plans in his mind you(Turyia) have zero idea what you are talking about.

His apparent bankroll is/was in a very volatile state. Tapping into the resource of experience in this forum could have been invaluable to him. We are talking about someone who is in a new place, has zero friends, and limited funds.

Turyia, you are right! Rubbing one out should be just under posting updates in regards to the state of his journey.
