I miss the days when pgc had less angry bitter unsuccessful micros players. Although to be fair it's mostly the same 3-4 of them being toxic in every thread.

i wonder if UG was brought into existence because of cuse. looking through his posts it appears his life mission was to anti-rail OP which is infinitely more pathetic than playing 1/3 on a weekend.

Was sick with some kind of viral thing with a horrific sore throat last weekend. Only good thing about it was it gave me an excuse to drink milkshakes.

Re: 2014: I Ainít Trying to Survive, Iím Trying to Live it to The (No) Limit

Confirmed not busto! I did have a downswing for a couple months, but I'm pretty close to my peak bankroll and I'd say I'm at my career peak overall.

I played some 1/3 while waiting for a bigger game to start. It never ran, but some guy in the 1/3 seemed really intent on giving away about a thousand, so I figured I'd try to return that punt. I have no problem playing in a 1/3 if it's good and deep. Also need to play a bit at the Horseshoe to keep my Diamond card, so that may mean a few 1/3 sessions.

Thanks, but no need... I know that there are a few people who would greatly enjoy my demise, but they're not going to get to see that happen. That's all the punishment they need as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes the trolling just highlights the absurdity of it all.

The irony is that I don't think I've had a milkshake since like July. The trolling to consumption ratio on milkshakes this year is a lot to two. But, I do highly recommend the ones at Black Tap Burger at Venetian (and I'm told they have an NYC location?). Do not get a burger, just go straight to the milkshake, you won't be able to consume both in one sitting.

PGC's definitely used to be way better. I got to know a few cool people who are very good at poker in real life, and they've almost all gravitated away from 2p2.

I think there's a lot of groupthink on 2p2 and certain posters attack people who don't conform to the groupthink views on how poker should be played or on how much success can be had at different levels. That's my .02, anyway.

There's nothing at all pathetic about playing 1/3 at any time. I'm sure there are people who make a decent living solely grinding 1/3 - I know some of them actually. Plenty of people have a lot of fun playing in the smaller games. And a consummate pro will use his/her time wisely while waiting for a bigger game or when there is a reason to be in that game. Sometimes you can make more at 1/3 than 2/5 or at 2/5 than 5/T, and so on.

I've played about 12 hours of 1/3 this year and made about $700. Yeah, sample size doesn't matter at all, throw out the hourly, etc, etc, but by sitting in a game where I could make positive income rather than sitting on my ass doing nothing, I am $700 richer, including $400 and change the other day because I stayed in a game that was really good for a couple hours instead of just going home when the bigger game didn't run.

And if a few people in the poker room think I'm busto, that's fine for me too, it might get me more action. So I'm cool with that rumor spreading.

There's definitely some groupthink as I think there is in a lot of areas of life, but I don't think that's why they post the way they do. Benabadbeat gets hate from some of them as well and he seems to be a very nice guy as well as a 500zoom reg whose study/play would fall in line with what the avg 2p2 person thinks is optimal in 2018. It just comes down to immaturity as well as bitterness about their own lack of success imo. Obv people like them tend to feel more comfortable acting like a fool when they feel they are anonymous on the internet as well but that's nothing new.

Re: 2014: I Ainít Trying to Survive, Iím Trying to Live it to The (No) Limit

Happy New Year everybody!

Seemed like a good time for a quick end of the year update. I'd say this was my best year yet in poker, although I missed my yearly goal by about 5%. Still a great year, and I took down my first live tourney which was a lot of fun.

I had some great experiences in 2018 too... seeing the Eagles win the Super Bowl with my family and going to the parade with my Dad, I made some new friends in the poker world, had a great WSOP, I had another fun cross-country road trip, I made some new friends outside the poker world, I dated a few cool people and learned some things in the process, I thought for a minute I might have met the right girl finally, and I figured out a lot about myself in general...

I'm really happy about some strides I've made outside of poker lately, and I think they'll carry over into my career and help in that regard too... in fact I think those realizations I've made and the work I've started could be the best thing that happened to me in 2018.

I think the first five months of 2019 will be a season of change for me, and I'm really looking forward to it. The first change will be a very big one, and it's going to take place in a month. Well, it's the first change I know 100% will take place within the next month - I'll be working on some others that relate to what I would consider internal game (in life, in dating, in socializing, in business, in poker, in health, in everything). I don't know (or care really) whether they take two weeks or six months, I'll just keep working at them and enjoying the process.

I'm still working on my short/mid-term goals for poker... Maybe I'll post some of them or my 2019 goals overall, which I'll be thinking about a bit tonight. It's going to be a low key NYE since I'm not feeling 100% the last couple days and a couple of my friends are out of town. But I've been more happy/content the last couple weeks than usual, and I'm just perfectly satisfied to chill at home, maybe have a glass of champagne at midnight, but mostly just think about the year ahead and what it holds in store. I think it's going to end up looking like a breakout/breakthrough year to people who don't know me, but really it will be the product of putting years of thought and work in.

Hope you all have a great New Year's Eve, and a healthy, prosperous and fun 2019!

Oh yeah, and the first big change is...
