For renting an apt? Depends on if u want it furnished or w/e. The avg priced for 1br furnished apts in downtown was around 1600-1700. 3k/month would prolly get you a really nice 2 br fully furnished in the heart of downtown.

Sorry, was basing it on what you mnetioned in the OP, maybe I misread, thought you were paying 3k and was hoping for some pictures of a really nice place... Best of luck again, hope the law changes soon and you don't have to deal with Toronto in Jan just to work.

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

Today was sickkkkkkkkkkkk. I started off with final tabling 2 35 180's, then i took 19th in a 33c, 26th in the 44turbo, 30th in the big 8. While this was going on i was building a nice stack in the Big 109, not long after i hit in the money in it i joined a 109 turbo. (note:When i started to get deep in the big 109 i stopped adding 180 tables so i could focus on it, so my 180 volume today was lacking.)

I ended up chopping the 109 turbo (about 400 runners) for $6300 with a friend of mine, and then i took 4th in the big 109 (about 1080 runners) for $7800. My first 5figure day since i've gotten back online (and top 3 for my most profitable days ever)!

***Overall Stats***

ABI:$23
Sngs played:246
Mtt's played:298
SNG profit: +$3,355
Mtt profit: +$14,149

Overall ROI: %140 (sustainable? XD)
VPPs obtained: 5535
VPPs YTD: 61096
MakeUp: 27742
Weekly tlb rank :27th (top 30!)
Monthly tlb rank:415
Yearly TLB rank:1152

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

Hey The Champ,

I live in Toronto, so I can speak a bit a bout it.

It's definitely a lively city. I think if you pick a nice place to live, it'll be worth your while. Downtown is stupid expensive IMO. If you get somewhere decent near the beach or so, and roughly 15 to 20 mins from downtown. It will be ideal. The summer here is pretty good. A lot of events here, clubbing scene is pretty nice, hopefully the blue jays put a better team on the field haha, but its definitely a busy city as well. If you want to discuss where a good area, or even a value added area to find a place, I'll gladly be happy to discuss with you.

- J

Re: ***Protential's Last PG&C Thread***

Congrats Ryan, told you that you'd do great when you moved out. Im happy for ya and also, its even more of a reason to get my $$$ situation under control and maybe come out to canada too so i can play on stars.

Its not a coincidence you and 2 other friends of mine had 20k+ jumps since black friday, theres so many sharks missing in the big mtts we play, and you are now capitalizing on it... wish i could , i am positive ill have the scores too- just gotta get up there- awesome day today you will have many many more!
