Works out fine for me, kind of just convinced her it's my "job" and I need to play a certain amount of hours without being disturbed in order to make money.

On the other hand she has a job where she is almost always on call, so if she gets called in to work at a bad timing I understand.

Kind of a mutual agreement between us that I don't mind.

Should probably just tell her that you need your focus in order to pay for more stuff for her

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Ty for the replies people..

You see, that's the thing. She seems absolutely incapable of ever giving me a whole day without communication. She said to me yesterday, 'thats it, i finally understand what i need to do to make us better'. So i reply 'don't talk to me when I'm playing poker?'. She says 'yes, thats it!'. At this point i'm just like wtf , you have been told that everyday for 2 years now you f**king m0r0n... How can you only just realise?! Anyway, i gave her 2 days before she disturbed me. She didn't last 3 hours. Text me to tell me the pet needs to be cleaned. WTF. Was in a 8k pot at the time, forgot the line that was taken by both me and him, no clue what happening, and just go all in and called by 3rd pair. So i remind her, i am playing poker, thanks for the text, but can you politely stfu... She says sorry.

Guess what. It happens today again. I get a text from her (obv when i am playing) saying that I owe her £6 and can I please pay it. Lose a pot for 2k as again i lose my concentration.

This mofo has done it to me i would say over 100 times now, and i would say i've lost well over 6 figures because of her tilting me and talking to me when i work. Like seriously, wtf. She isn't worth it, but still walks around with f**king Tiffany's engagement ring on her finger the size of a car, fake b00bs, 10 holidays a year............ And i still get treated like this.

WTF £6 how can she ask you for that, didn't you pay 4 her boobs as well as a ton other **** im guessing? if so that's ridiculous.
Also you should turn everything off when u play and take you phone out the room.

Yea, paid for about 30 holidays for her, b00bs, ring, every date we ever been on.........

Yeah, that is the last solution, everything off.

I guess its just a shame it had to come down to this.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Wow, stop acting like a materialistic douche man. It's a woman, they need communication and they won't just shut the **** up because you tell them too.

When you know you have to stay focused and she doesn't understand, treat it as a job. If you were in charge of a surgery, you wouldn't answer the phone because the puppy needs to be cleaned. You'd check it afterwards so if it distracts you, put it away and look at it during a break. Same with skype and browser.

There is a line between a job and relationship. If you want a girl that will give you attention only when you want it, break up and hire a hooker. Otherwise, commit yourself and take responsibility.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

i had to let my gf sit next to me for like 10 mins during a session, and tell her to make all of the decisions in her head with what she wanted to do. she was completely overwhelmed by the amount of decisions to be made and the amount of money, so thats what finally made her understand how much focus is needed and what the ramifications are. if she still doesnt understand, just sounds like she doesnt give a **** about your work or what you need honestly

Materialistic douche? Are you serious?

Nah, i had other relationships where they never disturbed me. It is possible to not pick up her phone and text me every hour of every day. I shouldn't have to turn my phone off just so i don't get texts from her. If someone needed me in an emergency...etc.

Don't want/need a hooker.

Tbh, agree with your paragraph 2, but your 1st and 3rd paragraph looks like you've never been in a relationship

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

I am in a long relationship and what I meant is that you mention all the expensive things you got her and stuff, and either you or she is very materialistic.

I always put her above poker cause what am I gonna do with all that money if there is noone to share it with.

However, you're right that she's being ignorant and unconcerned. Maybe she's just too much of an egoist to understand your situation? Don't know any of you, so not gonna judge. Use mike's idea, maybe that will speak to brain.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

its one thing when its a booty call or whatever, doesnt matter if you answer. if youre in a committed relationship with someone you really care about, if there is not mutual respect and understanding about a lot of areas of your lives (ie work) both lives become very, very stressful and everyone loses

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

I was explaining my gf some things about poker and she saw the posts about your girlfriend, now i started to ask her some things and told her to clear her mind right here

Well i`m the gilrfriend of one poker player... i understand is your job but is really bull**** how you are talking....

First of all... l... you chose gave her everything.... and dont complain about this.. you made her spoiled... if you are not satisfy'd dont stay on internet saying bad things about the girl... say to the girl its not possible... and find something better.....

And i understand the time my boyfriend needs to play... and i will do my stuffs.. work and go to the gym... she needs one more social life for herself.... i mean you already made her spoiled... now she is used, and will be difficult to change

And is really ****ing terrible how you have such a big mounth on internet... and talk so disrepectfull ( im sure... when she is in front of you... you are one cute boy)

Try talk about one schedule..... so she dont disturb you when playing, or text her before you start to play, Honeyyyy, wish me luck i will start to play, i will let you know when i finish... and only contact me if its very important (no you still ow me 6 pound kind of stuff)

Well that was it.... you boys have fun xxx =*

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

if she doesn't grasp the logic behind leaving you alone while you solve complex EV calcs in real time, the first ****ing time you explain, on to the next one imo....

unless those tits are as good as the lucky few posters who saw them say they are...

oh wait, still doesn't matter

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

don't set aside your phone. When you play, turn it off. Simple. Log off skype, don't go on twitter, don't check facebook. A couple of sessions like this and you'll see that your tilt issues are less frequent and then maybe she will understand. It's hard but sometimes finding out the hard way is the correct way (it worked with my ex, she immediately understood what she did wrong). Try it and you'll see, probably disconnecting any devices/channels of communication will be +EV for your game/bankroll/money/money

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Funny how you have time for "what's up" convos with your bros but the shortest text from your girflriend pisses you off.

I respect you a lot and how professionally you approach poker, but here you're just rude and disrespectful. Not to blame you for all of this, she's a part of the problem as well as she can't ****ing get what you're telling her. But 2p2 community is not going to solve anything. Go to her and make it clear to her once and forever.

If she can't understand this - so important to you thing, think how your lives will look like in the future.

The situation is not funny.

Her texts are always nagging/boring texts... The convo with the lads on whatsapp makes me happy/smile etc --> Good for the mind. Always win most when you are happy.

Not sure what bit i said was rude/disrespectful. Didn't mean to be. I thought asking what people do/have done about gf's would give me ideas, and it did - so it may quite possibly solve it.
