Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

One thing I admire most about Rayz is he has never asked for handouts. I donít think he will start now.
I believe, I believe that, I believe that he, I believe that Rayz can run it up. I believe that Rayz can run it up. I believe that Rayz can run it up.

There is a big difference between letting people invest in him and asking for a handout @yster.

Yeah, that I knew about. I don't consider this a landlord/tenant situation though. It's more of a couple/familial arrangement imo.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

My Stack sits around $130 w A5 checking the bb after 3 limps and sb completing.

5 way to flop of A5Jr
I lead $10 and get 2 calls from 2 covering stacks.

Pot $40ish 3way to turn of 3s bringing a back door flush draw.
I bet $30, setting me up for a river jam if I get a call. In fact, both players call.

*I feel gd I hv the best hand here after seeing them both hesitantly call my turn bet. My read was they both have an Ace since board was pretty dry.

Pot $130 River 8s.
Seems like a safe card to bet my last $90. Next player almost folds then goes into tank and decides to finally call. The other player shoved over top all-in.
At this point, I know I’m dead as he has to hv Ace suited spades.

Gg. All my #liferoll was on the table and I am officially broke right now.

You aren't broke. You don't have any cash right now, but your net worth is still pretty solid six digits.

Had RTA after busto yesterday. 2 kids were up for 4 wk renewal payment. Received $180. Will be getting $100 from Sara (daycare payment) next Monday, and another $100 from RTA 4wk private lesson (1hr each wk). So do hv some money spaced out for family bills, payments, or whatever. No money for golf right now or entertainment.

I guess we make that last until eom, and wait for $700 mortgopayment and her wk again for daycare? Sidenote: pays me a $100 every other wk. I took care of daycare for year for a whopping $300 savings.
That’s $800 beginning in Aug and try to make it to run up ville. Open for suggestions

My suggestion...
For myself, u and anybody else. Remove stressors from your life with extreme prejudice.
Seems to me you've done a great job of it so far, so much so that u only have 1 left...no roll.

So quit F-ing around and build it...
Which means NO outflow of funds unless REQUIRED for you or your families survival, until such goal is met.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

Great advice GatorXP.

After seeing Fed lose in 5, been working on pg. Got about 1/3 of fringe laid.

Fig’d I wd take a break and try my chance at HSI bonus hour. *Bonus Hour is all high hand hours that didn’t get hit and that $ rolls over to 3-4p bonus hour. A buddy texted me and said it was at $1200, so gonna buy n short, play for that hour, and maybe we get lucky. N route. We begging.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

Old Casino parking garage is currently closed and has been for about a month. Construction has started for land based casino. Parking now is back garage by hotel. I’m on the roof of that.
Guess I didn’t get here early enough. 2nd otl and it’s already 3:20. Might b a wasted trip. Can’t afford to play otherwise. Only here for this hour.
*bonus hour is actually $1500 (last hour didn’t get hit). Aces full of 10s qualifier, both hole cards hv to play.

Had AcJc flop was KcK5. Had to fold to a flop bet. Turn 10c, and player took it down.
Wow. Glad I didn’t see that river. Or maybe I did wanna see it. I don’t know, but that’s crazy. Playing to the bb, and then out.

Rayz what's your NTRP rating? I have played tennis for many years and would say I am around a 5.0 to 5.5 player nowadays.

Yeah ur above me.
I play in a 4.5/5.0 singles indoor league in the winter season. In the middle of the pack in that league.

Currently waiting on my next student for RTA. Suppose to b here at 6p, and he running late.
Got $45 gas on way here. Replaced a broken pool thermometer ($12). Current #lr $144

Hv decided to do just 1hr bonus hour tomo buying in for $100 this time.
I’ll luk the bonus hour rollover $ and will update again n real time. We need some sort boost. Getting hh lucky will do.

Re: STARTED WITH A $1/$2nl CHALLENGE, NOW WE'RE HERE.

Yeah, sad to see Fed lose in 5 after a 2 set lead, but glad to see Rafa prevail in yet another epic marathon of 4h47min in the toughest of the 4 quarter matches. #slam18?

Didn't understand why they put Djoko/Nishikori on Central court instead of Fed/Anderson though.

P.S. I'm about a 4.0 on the tennis scale.
