Go home, apologize to mom, get a part time job, play poker at a casino, grind up enough money to move out.

Who really gives a **** what happens in 10k hands, you're better off just making the thread a bankroll challenge and updating your progress (on one thread) like the other guy said how can you expect anyone to take this serious?

Lmfao I'm not trying to make a living at 2nl it's for discipline reasons. If you read the Intro maybe you would know that all good. Anyways I have money saved up to be a live pro when I turn 21 in 2months.

Re: I live in my car. Turning 21 in 2months. Then turning pro to chase my dreams. Come watch.

I just wanna clarify as well that I am genuinely rooting for ya. If I wasn't I wouldn't waste my time commenting. It's just when you flat out ignore or make jokes of some of the more constructive advice/questions, then what might actually be dedication or commitment gets mistaken for delusion, and that's when the pisstaking starts. It's genuinely hard to tell whether or not you're joking half the time and I don't think that's how it should be when the nature of the thread is in fact quite serious. Take yourself and your goals seriously and other people will too. If this was my thread I'd be calling everyone out on their BS and fighting to preserve my integrity but you seem quite content to just let it spiral into anarchy like it's predecessors.

Also fwiw, I think where or how you're living is irrelevant, plenty of billionaires lived in their car whilst getting their business' up and running.

I'm curious, are you really living in your car or are you spending a lot of time at your GF's house? Where are you showering and stuff like that?

Serious question, what are you going to do differently to what you did the previous times you tried this?

Great question. in the past i would play out of my roll a lot. what i will be doing differently is practicing BRM. like i stated before i have a roll saved up for live games when i turn 21 in may. The ACR grind is just for discipline reasons.

I'm wishing you the best of luck. I can't help but feel in that situation its going to be very tough to consistently play your A game. Definitely rooting for you though

How many more of these F*cking threads is OP going to make?

Ban him for his own good please MOD


Also, OP, I started p laying poker when I was 13, had same ****ty notions you have, constantly going broke and starting again with a few $ determined to make mirrions... I am 27 now, Its a miracle I managed to do something with my life.

Your story is so similar to mine bud, you have to give up on this dream, you are going to waste your life

you don't seem to understand how poker works man, you don't choose to go pro with no results, first you get good results and then you consider going pro

anyway won't bother giving any advice you never listened to them but to me it's pretty obvious you don't have what it takes, hope I'll be proved wrong but I doubt it

I think the negative feedback was primarily due to ops arrogance when he started the thread. Doing things like laughing off good advice and calling out "haters" is generally going to piss ppl off. Especially when you're terrible at poker.

Re: I live in my car. Turning 21 in 2months. Then turning pro to chase my dreams. Come watch.

OP you are ****ing retarded, stop being a kid and grow up. I've been in your shoes for 2-3 years, from 18-20.5 years old. After those 2,5 years I realized how ****ing retarded I was and couldn't even beat NL25 on a long run.

I can beat NL50 now 6bb/100+ (pre RB) and do you know what made a difference? Just accepting I'm not going anywhere with this ****, because my mind is not in a right state, even though I was putting in solid volume. Take a break, go work in some terrible manufactoring job or w/e to see what it means to make money + save some and go back to school. While being in school, focus on it and play poker just for fun, as a strategy game, don't be invested in it emotionally, because if you are, you are going to fail again. Look on poker as chess or w/e, a ****ing game. And with proper BR, that's what it is, a game where you can make money, if your strategy is good enough and you adapt to different opponents.

You don't have to drop out of school and **** up things at home, because of poker. You are 21 and you already destroyed some family connections I guess, since you live in a car? Just admit to yourself you are ****ing retarded, ask your gf about honest opinion etc.. I'm sure you have friends that are 21 and finishing school, etc.. And you have nothing? Don't be ****ing stupid you piece of ****, you are 21, either you turn your life around now and fix things that you have destroyed with poker or you are going to be a hobo in few years.

For your own sake I hope your gf doesn't crack and leave you or you find out she is cheating on you, because you'd probably **** your life over even more. Holy **** you delusional ****ing retard, pull your **** together with things outside poker, everyone is telling you this, because everyone here has maybe been in your shoes at one time.

You know when you should go pro? When you have a steady job or just ****ing work somewhere, and beside that job make consistently for a year more in poker than in that ****ing job. That's the truth, and yes, you are going to be working 16+ hours/day for that year. This isn't golden era of poker anymore where you could **** around and make a small fortune.

Get over yourself, you ****ing *****. I hope your gf reads this, if not, give her to read it and ask her for opinion. If she doesn't agree, I guess she is just as retarded as you are, and you two keep having retarded babies while living on welfare for the rest of your life, bitching about how tough life is. Sorry for harsh words, but you really lack a father figure or some ****, that would slap you. Maybe even a good friend that would punch you in the face and make you realize all of this.

Holy ****ing ****. I'm out.

I did this too but was a bit older, 24. I quit uni after I binked 6k in a 3 rebuy mtt on stars and went "pro."
I was about togo broke but luckily I met another player I used to rail all the time and he coached me to learn everything about sngs and mtts. So it's possible to succeed, but in my oppinion, you cant make it on your own.
Find someone to coach and stake you, someone who knows how to win at cash or w/e you want to play and be ready to put in serious hours, like min 8 hrs a day for the first few months.
