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

The last few days were pretty decent, but very heart breaking. I took 19th in a TCOOP event, min cashed 2 more, won a 22 big antes (for 1400), took 3rd in the 109t 5k gtd for 8850, took 14th in the Warm Up . I Also had some other really deep runs over the last few days (3r, big 11, etc).

The good news, Saturday was my first winning day in over a month, and Sunday was my first 5 figure day in over 2 months. The bad news, I busted the warm up on A8<95s aipf, and I'm still down since getting to Canada.

Over much of my recent swing i wasn't playing my A-game, being sick + being away from my boyfriend + run bad definitely had its toll on me. However i wasn't playing badly either (was playing abc poker), so i still have been running pretty ridiculously ****ty.

But with now being healthy again, my boyfriend being back, and getting pointed out that I wasn't on my A-game, I'm more pumped than ever to keep grinding and clear this make up. I'm still really certain that I can before I leave Canada, just gotta stay OTG and keep positive and make sure I'm on my A-game. ^.^

Wasn't going to miss any more days of tcoop, but the events that are running today I don't care about, and after my brutal warm up run the last thing i want to do is grind on a Monday. So taking the day off to relax and hang out with my boyfriend, won't miss any more tcoop days after today, and wont be taking many days off over the next few months. Trying to keep myself from burning out though, so def need some form of balance.

Thanks for reading and best of luck at the tables!

*** 3 Months In Canada Update ***

As of tomorrow my bf and I will have been in canada for 3 months! :O Took us about 8 days to get an apartment, about 2 weeks to get back onto stars, also I left for 10 days for holidays. I have also averaged taking 1 day off a week. So i have pretty much played 54 days/sessions (give or take a few), 19 of which i was sick for and away from my boyfriend (bad mood, not great mindset with not being healthy, plus ran pretty terribly). I have about 90 days left in the country and will probably end up playing for 80-85 of them, so i have essentially only played around 35-40% of the volume i will play out here in total. Still plenty of time to clear make up and get some cheddah for myself. ^.^

It's been a pretty interesting 3 months and has been a great experience overall. I Don't regret moving here at all, while it has been really expensive, Toronto is an awsome city and we have met many wonderful people.



Sunday was really uneventful, min cashed in a bunch of things, had some final 27's, but not in anything major. Cashed the mill ball and a tcoop 215$, and while I played the main I did not cash it. Had a friend FT the tcoop main tho, but sadly enough he didn't win. I took yesterday off to hangout with my bf/friends/run some errands, will be grinding every day for awhile from today on (probably all of feb, gonna try for legit run at monthly). I am very happy with how I have been playing recently (cashed like 13 times on sunday), just a matter of time before i get my bink on. ^.^



I was recently looking at my overall stats lifetime online and thinking about my poker "career" in general. Poker is a sick sick game. I have enjoyed playing it full time greatly, i have learned a lot from it and it has certainly made me into a much better and more educated person overall. I have also been able to experience some of my dreams and achieved some major goals in the game. I think i'll be able to look back at my overall poker journey with a large amount of fondness and a small amount of pride for what i was able to do in the game. Also, no matter how my career ends I wont have regrets for not trying to live my dream.

Below is my overall graph and a breakdown of my stats so far.




*** Stats Breakdown ***

$0-$109

Games:18042
ABI: $20
ROI:19%
Profits: $49,061

$110+

Games:481
ABI:$176
ROI: -49.1%
Profit: -$41,995 (22k of which comes from ftp)

I also estimate that i'm up around 20-25k lifetime live (pretty much all buy-ins over 110).

It's been a sick roller coaster, can't wait to see what the future has in store for me ^.^

Edit: I will still prolly play full time for the next few years yet, my make up currently sits at 59.1k

Congrats on the big score!

Too bad I passed out when it was 7 handed so I missed that bink.

Start of an epic heater imo

Around game 4000 i started to stack tables when i grind, previously i would cascade and organize my tables on my screen based on game type and buy in. I have found stacking to be much more enjoyable, less stressful, and much easier to work with (not watching how i lose is +EV i guess). I'm up around 15k since making the switch, so it seems to be working wonders.

Due to my visa restrictions i have to leave canada for at least 72 hours soon. Because of this, and because of travel costs rising immensely for me and my bf to get back home for a few days, we have decided to head down to vegas. Total travel costs to vegas (hotel included :O ) and back is equal to what it would cost to get back to milwaukee, so with that and there being the wynn poker classic going on, we will be heading to vegas from the 5th of march to the 10th of march (not missing a sunday!). Should be a fun little trip, and a nice little "vacation", i'll do a small trip report for it in here. I'm just playing 3 small events, but maybe i'll be able to run goot live and clear up some make up while im at it. ^.^

Thanks for reading! Best of luck at the tables!
