I was talking about on stars. Your starting stack is 500, so i kinda think that for a level that late it would be a pretty epic game

Yea Telnor is what this place had set up in it, gonna upgrade it tomorrow I hope. It's not that bad, like I was still 26 tabling supers tonight, it just sometimes lags really bad for a minute or two which is annoying.

______________________________________

Just got off the phone with stars a couple mins ago . Super super quick so far, if my docs are accepted by the "manager" I might be on by early next week. The standard wait time seems to be 9-10 days for most people, so I seem to be running pretty well right now, but I also made sure all my documents were perfect when I sent them in and I made sure to explain each of them in depth; was a pretty tl;dr email but I think it was very +EV. Hopefully the manager accepts it and I dont have to send/resend any docs and am back online by Monday or Tuesday, that'd be really sick.

Okay so didn't play this afternoon since net was laggy as **** and our landlords came to meet us, plus the blackhawks were actually on TV tonight out here! Ended up playing a bit after though and ran under EV, but made $'s pre RB which is always nice. Gonna try to get in a decent bit of volume tomorrow, hopefully 400+ games imo.

Hey jdawg, been a big lurker in this thread (and the last), very inspirational. I'm curious, did you have any problems getting the house as a poker player, i.e. no paychecks to show them to prove you have money for rent?

I'm also curious about your visa situation. Do you have a holiday/work visa?

Thanks.

Thx man, and nah, we went through a realtor and we kinda had to "prove" income to him beforehand, I could see if you were just going through owners that it might be tougher, but we didn't have any problems at all.

I do not have a work visa or anything down here, most people do not as they don't even really check anything at the border; we didn't get stopped at all. I will be looking at getting an FM-2 though which is basically a visa/ID for Mexico, it should be really +ev to have if I plan to stay for a long while (6+ months)

______________________________________________

Gonna hopefully get in some decent volume today, but have to go down to the office with the roommate and try to get our internet upgraded and then we're going to go take a walk and hopefully take some pics. If they upload quick enough, maybe will have some pics ITT later today, but don't count on it!

Gl to everyone grinding today, will probably end up updating later tonight.

______________________________________________

Today's been a decent volume day so far, but I'm still failing! Have a little sidebet ($1 ) with roommate that I'd play at least 6 hrs on the table so far; so far I'm still at <4 hrs lol, but I think I'm gonna try to get there. Here's a graph of my games so far today, will post a monthly total at the end of my session tonight.

Not sure how much I'll play tomorrow as the Packers are on against the Chargers tomorrow afternoon and I'll def be watching that

________________________________

Okay so ran really bad this last sesh and then Merge ended up ****in up and not popping up some of my tables which was quite annoying. Prolly won't play much tomorrow at all, I'll be watching NFL from 10am-9pm most likely, and may get in a few games after but who knows.

Talked to PS Chris, and he's going to try to get me bumped up to being done by Tuesday night, so hopefully will be back on PS early this next week; would be sick to be back online in less than a week, got here Wednesday at noon and sent in documents Thursday night.

So far Starting Gun and I been running pretty decently, neither of us have lost $s pre RB yet since getting here and we've combined to play ~35-40 hrs so far...hopefully we can keep it up!

Here's a Merge graph for the month, all games played in Mexico; sitting on <9 hrs played so getting in a ton of games/hr



Glgl everyone grinding tomorrow.

So you and SG are actually living together? I just remember you saying you couldn't live with another hyper player for obvious reasons.

What games does he specialize in? I'm sure it's great to be around another player that is grinding, especially to keep each other motivated and stuff.

Yea, he plays mostly 18 mans now with $7 hypers mixed in at the start and finish of his sessions, but has dabbled in everything from STT's-180's/MTTs.

And yea, he puts in a ton of hours, I'm failing pretty hard at my goal, which is just to put in 80% of the hours that he puts in, but I'm not worried about it as I wasn't even sure I was going to play on Merge anymore while waiting for PS. I'm gonna lose our first motivation bet tho, I had to play 6 hrs today and I quit at 4 hrs :P, he wanted to book it for $20, but we agreed on $1 . Def don't wanna make it a habit of losing these bets to him, mostly about the pride and not the money obv!

Okay here's some pics finally; all these pics courtesy of SG. Looks pretty good off the iphone, wpwp by him! These are just a few pics from around the grounds of the resort and then of the lounge level of our tower, all 3 towers have a lounge, gym etc, pool, jacuzzi's. Tower 3 also has a movie theater, but we haven't checked that out yet.

Not bothering to upload with imageshack cuz FFS, taking too long as this internet is slow

___________________________________________

Up fairly early today, but won't be playing any poker most likely, first NFL games kick off in 1.5 hrs iirc (not sure on this whole daylight savings time/if we do it here) so gonna maybe get in a quick walk on the beach, then shower and get ready for football. Like I said last night, decent chance I don't even play today at all, depends how I feel after the Steelers/Ravens game tonight probably.

Glgl to everyone on sundayfunday, run gooooood
