yeah iv hear what you're saying lux. Unfortunately living in such an expensive part of the world, money is a pretty vital part to maintaining my lifestyle.

Poker does make me happy though fwiw, i love the game, but yeah it's not something that'll solely fullfill me long term

thanks a lot boss! haha yeah, if it's a matter of months then get grinding! I know what you mean though, the stress for a lot of people is really unappealing, even for a potential salary increase.

            Down several k still this month. Playing and feeling good.

            The plan for the week is to grind tomorrow, tuesday clients, wednesday uni and then GUKPT Ł2100 event on thursday, which btw if you're playing, hit me up. Then grind through the weekend. I'm thinking bout taking most of the following week to write up 3 essays. I wanna try free up most of december so i can grind hard when the games get juicy.

            gl!

            Kq or weaker bdfd like xxhh too I guess vil blocks ah tho

            Honestly don't think it's that crazy (still crazy). Obviously overall but obviously he thought Bena over bluffing with his line.

            Literally would break keyboard if I had Kq here tho
