Thanks! I'm form the U.s yes. I would have to say yes. The whole anonymous thing really makes players play in "i don't care about money mode" this is because they can just dip when they "gamble". Hope that answers your question.

Thanks, that makes sense. I guess I forgot it was anonymous. I never used Bovada.


Have fun on vacation!

Living in your car and driving uber? How do you keep it clean? Where do you grind?

How did you do in that last tournament?

i clean it every time i see a mess. i came in 10th for 55$ AK0 vs 88 didn't improve. Catch me at Americas cardamom at 5nl streets. deposited 10$ through bitcoin seeing whats sup.

i do ubereats so keeping it clean is just for my own personal use (its clean )

Re: $42.00 --> $10,000 Going To Beat Doug Polk To 10k

saw you make another thread before, I honestly don't think poker is the right thing for you and you should consider other areas that fits your profile and ambitions more

your results are basically non existent within a whole year and poker isn't going to get any better, so I suggest you move on and do something better with your life

FWIW, I think you can still make it in poker. But you lack the self discipline and effort IMO to make this work based on what I've seen. GL regardless.

I've followed the last couple of your threads. A couple of questions...


1.) How did your class/school finish up? Any degree or anything like that?
2.) You turn 21 in May 2017? So have you played live poker at a casino before?
3.) What does your bankroll look like?
4.) This may be a stupid question...what does "moved out of my house and I live in my car" mean? Did you get kicked out of the house? Assuming you're sleeping in your car...where do you park your car when you sleep?
5.) Do you still have the girlfriend? What is her opinion on this new life?

Most people would have relatively thought about these questions before trying this out...but as your previous threads have shown, you tend to act more on impulsivity and "your dreams". Will be following of course

no i do not. I'm grinding 5nl just to improve my discipline. i have a gambling addiction that i have realized and ready to learn how to get rid of it. so playing 5nl has always been hard for me since its pennies, but improvement is what I'm aiming for. when i turn 21 I'm turning pro.

heres my graph so far on ACR 5nl small sample

Thanks for actual response lol.

Follow up Q regarding #2/#3/live poker...

How have you done in live poker so far? What stakes are you playing (I'm assuming $1/$2 cash games but...)? How many sessions / hours have you played (estimate)? Once you turn 21 in a couple of months then you should have free reign to be able to play/drive whereever you think is best.

I would also suggest making a graph to track wins/losses/hours played/hourly rate (I used excel but know phone apps are out there)

Also, I know you seem to like to play tournaments from your posts. Have you considered playing some $60-$150 live tournaments?

Edit: Making a new thread is just semantics. Everyone already knows its you etc. If you want to then go for it but it's not a big difference in my opinion

This cant be true obv a troll lol...

Didn't wanna live under a warm roof because he "didn't want to follow curfew". So that already tells me your aren't discipline so clearly wont have any discipline while playing Poker with BRM and the mental side of the game....Please smarten up...

Live with your parents for a few years and build a roll and learn the game better. Youre still 20 you got ALOT to learn in life.

Wish you the best. SMH

You already lost. If youre an addict it wont go away. Stop playing bc youll always be looking for that "Getting rich quick method" and youll go broke

SMH....Wont be long until you start using drugs or booze to deal with the swings. May not want to hear this but its the truth. Ive heard horror stories and your story is wayyy too similar and youre already homeless so your on the FastTrack.

Not trying to be a dick but you seem nave and need to wake up.
