No offense, but that's why you are where you are and Rovar soon will be where he will be.

Mark this post and come back in a year, perhaps half year. It will be the most eye opening moment.

I don't say this to put you down, because your advice is "standard" and 99,5% of people would agree with you.

It may or may not change some of what you take for granted.

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Chill guys, if you don't like what you see, just move along. It really is that simple. Now i don't have time or energy to respond to negativism, so i'll just ignore that in future.

About the job; I didn't quit job. Yet!
I'm more cautious guy, so i need bigger sample to make such a decision. It just happens to be that i could take 3 month of unpaid leave and not loose my job. Afterwards i can work part time, keep my job, my flat and provide security (kinda bull**** word with such a salary) for my family and still have enough time for poker.
However it is my goal to quit my job in the future, we'll just have to see when is it going to be. Half year, a year... don't know. I wanna focus hard now on the game and worry about that later.
------------------------------------------------------

Well nothing new to report, same old stuff for like couple of weeks or how is it. Ups and downs. I have to admit that it's slightly getting on my nerves but i have to stay disciplined and patient. I still find myself 3-4 tabling and I'll keep my main goal to 2 table at most for the rest of the week.

I finally received converter for my 2nd monitor so now my desktop doesn't look so messy anymore.

888 cut out HUNL games? I'm out of there!

Oh yeah, graph and stats:

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Well, if they happens to have top of their range, it still doesn't make it a bad bluff :/
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Always nice to see most profitable day so far, which was yesterday:



Luckboxing? Wouldn't say that much, just most of stuff held.

Did i play any different than days before when I had ~ BE stretches?
Not really, i mean no intentional stuff that i worked on, except that I noticed my red line went up a little, clearly implemented tips from coach.

It's funny, i can't explain it, like i learn things but I can't break it down what exactly did i actually learned, i'm just doing it.

Today wasn't so great, but still managed to make small profit.

So since last update:



After 888 removed HUNL (btw, still waiting for cash out) another shocker for me...

Party adds 3% to all skrill withdrawals?!? Without forewarning? WTF is next? This room is just getting worse and worse.

Turn: ($5) 3 (2 players)
Hero checks, SB checks

River: ($5) T (2 players)
Hero bets $2, SB calls $2

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Heyhoo,

the heater step on a break for a while, so we are just gonna have to be satisfied with small profits, over last two days:



I'm still not welcomed on NL100 as I'm almost BE in ~12k hands. I hope this changes soon.

The weather is getting cooler here, so i was thinking about adding some workout to my daily routine. I was looking at 10 minute trainer with Tony Horton... after a while, i decided not to do it.
It's in back of my mind, so eventually i am going to start with it, i just don't feel it now, plus my wife wish to do it with me, so ... til further notice

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Best week so far!



There isn't much to say, i just hope that it continues.
That way, my wife may finally get her a clothes dryer. I did some calculations and all those energy savings, if you buy A+ or A++ instead of B type is a lot of bull***. The price is so much higher, that i'll cover the difference in about 10 years. By then, she'll want a new one

I don't know what WPT did to their software, but that doesn't stop me!

We interrupt this every other day writing routine, due to special announcement; we just set a new point for highest daily profit...

Thanks for reading!

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

So the week is over and what looked liked to be the most profitable week so far ended at first day profit I felt kinda sad but then i remembered what the f***k are you complaining about? You just made another 1k in a week and you never made it so much before so shut up, be pleased and focus on learning!

Last 2 days weren't so good to me, as you can see from the graph. The overwhelming feeling of winning is put to reality which only means that I have to focus even more on what am i doing!





See you next week!

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Hi all!

Week hasn't started so great, I mean i was up yesterday ~600 and today ~400, but in the end both days ended in negative. Not because of tilting mode, just nothing worked, i mean nothing... Well, it's poker so we just have to grind this thing trough.

On top of that my wife got sick - mastitis (high fever, headache, painful joints...), common thing with nursing women, but i hate to see her in pain. So naturally i have to jump in to help her more around the baby.
I'm playing poker when ever i can... when kiddo is sleeping, drugs kick in and she feels good, with kiddo in one arm and other one on the mouse...

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Hey,

i've contacted Gordon that i wish to stop today before i hit my stop loss. The reason behind it was, that this is the fourth day in the row, when i start great and then at some point of the day everything just go to hell. I felt extra helpless today and it got to me, so i wanted to quit cos it affected my game. He said no way and that I should keep on playing no matter what...

Just kidding, he told me to take a break and relax... so i went out with my family and we built something that looks like a tepee, but not really



Last two days:



Don't mean to whine about the game, cos you all know the story and i know i can't run away from that, but no point in playing while your not sure in yourself.

Tomorrow, I'll start slowly, one table, action by action thoughts...

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Heyhoo, everyone!

After my last post I had another stop loss day, which led to smaller vacation aka brain rest, ordered by Gordon. He checked my play and there where not that many mistakes, but he sent me on a off poker/computer weekend (that's right, no comp at all). It is exactly what i needed, cos i did have the feeling I might be pushing to much with my play.

Anyway, i'm back and even tho i'm down like 3BI atm, i feel good behind the tables. I do however keep it less volume like and take it slow... i just might do that whole week.

Here's previous week report:

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Time for an update!

My kids got sick, first the oldest one, now the middle one, some stomach virus, i don't know, it's just a matter of time before rest of us get it. Let's hope not.

Volume is rather low, but on the safe side

Re: F**k my sh**ty job: Family guy on a hunt for money

Climbed back a little bit and hit another downer, so all in all BE week. It's so hard to play without even remotely hitting. I really don't care about those preflop situations, but with no equity after and opponent having a peace of it, it's still hard for me. I don't why i have that feeling that every pot should me mine



Luckily (knocking hard on wood here...) no one else got stomach sick, but rather some common cold in those transitional days, which was expected.

Of to enjoy what's left from weekend.

Let's get them next week!
