But we hv been crushing the sports bet lately. Ran $600 up to $4k in a couple weeks.
Just getting lucky chasing tho. We can’t continue this behavior. It’s been dangerous, but we hv been getting bailed out.
This is all practice for 2022.

Today we bet $600 on Steelers before the half getting 19.5. Then the interception pick 6 before half, and doubled down for $1400 getting 27 points.
Lost both, $2k

Drove to the book to place a $2500 bet on Packers -4.5 and $620 ml. Made it up and got in black.

Fired $600 on Ravens -2.5 tonight.

Won a 3 leg parlay w Bengals, 49, Packers.

Todays gonna end up black regardless of Ravens. Just not liking how this behavior is going.
Discipline is key for 2022 goal. It’s ok to go heavy on some bets. But, chasing is bad. I don’t deserves these wins.

SUMMARY OF MY STORY.

Rayz Rayl (butterflysymmetry), 44, from Southern Indiana. Following my own path, creating my own destiny. Hv lived most of my life without working for anyone. Winning and failing, earning and losing, climbing the ladder, in the working world is all on me.

Always been competitive in sports and with myself. Setting goals and challenges hv helped pushed me to new levels. Never came from much, but never struggled either growing up. Bmx’er, skateboarder, and the sport that was in season was my jam.

It wasn’t until 2003 that I stopped everything to pursue poker full time. Perfect timing because I landed a teaching job right outside of college and knew the first day walking into my classroom that i didn’t want to spend the rest of my life teaching math. Felt I was capable of so much more. Not that teaching wasn’t an admirable profession. It’s just wasn’t my profession. My desire. My dreams. Wasn’t me. Me is being the top of the top. MVPs, Oscars, Pulitzers, Grammys, changing the world, inventions, and money. Selfish selfish selfish money. Who cares bout molding the middle schoolers w Rayz knowledge, and teaching them math they will never use. I wanted more than that. Wanted the stuff I always dreamed of having, but knew the chances were slim. We wanted that.
I wanted to create my own destiny w no structure. My own path that will create itself if I just keep pushing forward. Wanted to go after “it”, but not knowing what “it” was.

I was gd enough in poker when I started. Just the will to win and knowing numbers was enough at first. Remember being little scared playing in casinos at first, but then by end of the year I was walking in my local poker room like Conor McGreger. After first full year playing professionally, i knew this cd b something bigger. Something long term. Poker was gonna be my plan for everything.

Poker went well for many years and was the avenue for some other business ventures I had in my life.
It was 2013 when life became stale, i decided to reach out here. I knew I needed to refocus on the pokers, and needed the 2+2ers extra support for motivation. Found all that here.

We started w a simple $1/$2 no limit Holdem challenge in 2013 to make $40k. Each year since, we made some new yearly goals. Again, each year was to push me closer to my destination. Still didn’t know what I was going after, but I’d know when we got there. Year after year, poker was the base, but stock trading crept in, entrepreneur ideas crept in, sports cards crept in, crypto crept in, and few others I’m prob forgetting.
Somehow we made a million dollars this year and I’m still trying to think if we made it. We bought the Tesla, the $800 Gucci shoes, the Willie Mays rookies, but something feels off. We are capable of something bigger.

We ain’t stopping.
Thanks for following this 2+2 journey w me.
Rayz

BS, did anyone from 2+2 ask if it was ok to tweet that? Seems like a bad beat in terms of reducing bad business pitches and asking for handouts.

What kind of advice are the people wanting to get lunch wanting from you? Learn to flip houses, poker, teach tennis, go all in on a stock or crypto, paint bball courts or build putting greens? What was the loose advice you gave them?

Ask me to tweet what?
My last tweet was a few days ago saying how we shdnt be sitting at red lights w no oncoming traffic coming in either direction. Shouldn’t be sitting in a l traffic jams. Shdnt be zig zaggin to our destinations. Transports is lacking so far behind. I want to change that.
^ don’t understand

I am not meeting any of the requests for my time. I tell them I’m no expert and just gv off simple advice. I really don’t want to mess w anyones money but my own.
Yes business pitches as well. I am tho gonna meet w one who I trust. One I wanna hear out. Others, I been saying I’m done w work.
Yes, people wanna go in on flips too.
People sending me houses now.

Hope this helps answer ur question better

Currently:
We up over 400,000 xlm coins.
We been adding on these dips pretty hard.
The chart is starting to look billing for me. Im thinking xlm above .40 around Christmas. If u widen it out bout 3years, it looks just like a cup n handle.

•Only pokers hv been are 5/10/25 Friday now. Nothing really excites me like that game does. Need to start finding some games through the week.

•a nice little bet on Duke -3 today.

•next years sports bet goal…
Thinking 4 bets a week. All weekend bets. This will keep it simple to follow.
4x52= 208 total bets. Shd b a decent sample size to see if we cd beat it. Agree?
$2k in bets each week. We will include the $25k ish future bets we hv already made. Will get the exact number (pic proof) when we start Jan. 1.
This puts us over $100k in total bets 2022.

•poker will be played at the highest level ever in 2022.

We fine tuning our 2022 goals.
