Total: $1,130.00

Grant Total: $4,069.00

Currently looking at Palm Beach Kennel Club Wsop Circuit Event for my next package.

There's going to be a $580 buy in million dollar guarantee with 5 first day flights.

Was thinking about reserving 2-3 bullets for that, 2-3 bullets for $365 events, plus including at least 24 hours of cash game action.

I'll have my next package up by this weekend.

(It's going to be a 1.1 mark up since traveling expenses are going to be a kick in the balls, but I think the cash game action I provide in addition to the shot taking in tournaments is a sufficient safety net that makes the 1.1 mark up fair.)

Let me know if you want your funds shipped back to you ASAP or if you'd like me to hold onto them.

I can start sending funds out tonight if you need them.

Thanks for investing.

2013 Year In Review:

Cash Game Profit: $33,843.00

Total Hours Played: 1641

Hourly Win Rate: $20.62

$1/$2 NLHE Win Rate: $21.13 a hour over the course of 1287 hours.

$2/$5 NLHE Win Rate: $18.65 a hour over the course of 357 hours.

Weekday Win Rates:

Sun- $17.50/278 hours
Mon- $28.17/184 hours
Tue- $29.53/270 hours
Wed- $25.81/192 hours
Thur-$10.63/218 hours
Fri- $10.58/255 hours
Sat-$23.76/249 hours

In December I played 141 hours and netted $4,829.00 in profit falling well short of my $8,000.00 goal. At one point I got so burned out I had to take 3-4 days off, though.

Although these numbers aren't impressive, I am still quite proud of what I achieved because I am still out here everyday PURSUING MY DREAMS and not SLAVING AWAY AT A FORD DEALERSHIP working a soul sucking job helping the owner that was spoon fed prosperity achieve HER DREAMS.

Every day I wake up and I live for myself.

I don't have to go see movies, watch television, follow sports, check newspapers or read magazines to find people to live vicariously through.

I am one of the few that still has a chance to achieve and be what his idols are and 2014 will be a relentless pursuit of building my bankroll to 50k+ while continuing to evolve as a person so I can be a better son, grandson, brother, lover, and friend.

In addition to the above, I'll be concentrating more on my writing again. I had a gig lined up with Poker Pro magazine + Poker News Newspaper, but I was going to be limited on the amount of words I could use and was going to have to tone down the vulgarity, political opinions, and the overall dark imagery I use in some of my stories.

I decided I couldn't go through with it.

Part of being "The People's Champ" means knowing my audience and I know the thought of a PG-13 Lotgrinder column would be as appealing as fukking your girlfriend or wife missionary position for the 3,684th time.

You don't want to read or think about that $hit, you'd rather read about snorting cocaine out of an 18 year old strippers a$$hole and if I get caught up in the type of action I want to be able to bring you bastards the full uncut story.

So, I went back into the "think tank" and I've decided I'm just going to let my words spill out much like Axl Rose did back in the early 90's when he penned the song "Coma."

"I tried to write that song for a year, and couldn't. I went to write it at the studio and passed out. I woke up two hours later and sat down and wrote the whole end of the song, like, just off the top of my head. It was like, don't even know what's coming out, man, but it's coming. I think one of the best things that I've ever written was maybe the end segment of the song "Coma". It just poured out." -Axl

You see, Slash had wrote the music to this mammoth of a song, but Axl hadn't been able to put words to it for over a year. It finally took overdosing on some drugs and many long nights all coc'd up out of his mind in the studio to finish it.

But when the final product was done, one of the most unknown and unappreciated songs of all time was born...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CnSTSixzcg

Hey you caught me in a coma
And I don't think I wanna
Ever come back to this...world again
Kinda like it in a coma
'Cause no one's ever gonna
Oh, make me come back to this...
world again
Now I feel as if I'm floating away
I can't feel all the pressure
And I like it this way
But my body's callin'
My body's callin'
Won't ya come back to this...
world again
Suspended deep in a sea of black
I've got the light at the end
I've got the bones on the mast
Well I've gone sailin',
I've gone sailin'
I could leave so easily
While friends are calling back to me
I said they're
They're leaving it all up to me
When all I needed was clarity
And someone to tell me
WHAT THE **** IS GOING ON
GODDAMN IT!

Slippin' farther an farther away
It's a miracle how long we can stay
In a world our minds created
In a world that's full of ****

HELP ME
HELP ME
HELP ME
HELP ME
BASTARD

Please understand me
I'm climbin' through the wreackage
Of all my twisted dreams
But this cheap investigation just
Can't stifle all my screams
And I'm waitin' at the crossroads
Waiting for you
Waiting for you
WHERE ARE YOU

No one's gonna bother me anymore
No one's gonna mess with my head no more
I can't understand what all the fightin's for
But it's so nice here down off the shore
I wish you could see this
'Cause there's nothing to see
It's peaceful here and it's fine with me
Not like the world where I used to live
I NEVER REALLY WANTED TO LIVE

ZAP HIM AGAIN
ZAP THE SON OF A BITCH AGAIN

Ya live your life like it's a coma
So won't you tell me why we'd wanna
With all the reasons you give it's
It's kinda hard to believe
But who am I to tell you that I've
Seen any reason why you should stay
Matbe we'd be better off
Without you anyway
You got a one way ticket
On your last chance ride
Gotta one way ticket
To your suicide
Gotta one way ticket
An there's no way out alive
An all this crass communication
That has left you in the cold
Isn't much for consolation
When you feel so weak and old
But is home is where the heart is
Then there's stories to be told
No you don't need a doctor
No one else can heal your soul

Got your mind in submission
Got your life on the line
But nobody pulled the trigger
They just stepped aside
They be down by the water
While you watch 'em waving goodbye
They be callin' in the morning
They be hangin' on the phone
They be waiting for an answer
When you know nobody's home
And when the bell's stopped ringing
It was nobody's fault but your own
There were always ample warnings
There were always subtle signs
And you would have seen it comin'
But we gave you too much time
And when you said
That no one's listening
Why'd your best friend drop a dime
Sometimes we get so tired of waiting
For a way to spend our time
An "It's so easy" to be social
"It's so easy" to be cool
Yeah it's easy to be hungry
When you ain't got **** to lose
And I wish that I could help you
With what you hope to find
But I'm still out here waiting
Watching reruns of my life
When you reach the point of breaking
Know it's gonna take some time
To heal the broken memories
That another man would need
Just to survive



So, Harry The Pro and all you others that have been private messaging me about my writing....

Hold tight, more is coming...and when it does it will...

It's definitely a leak if I'm playing the hand that way 100% of the time, but 95% of the time I'm going to have a weak/passive right there in the spot to the left of me so I'm going to be raising.

This was a specific play put into play for a specific reason.

Maybe we write just write a magazine together dude. I have the name all lined up. The first issue is you and me in the vegas deserr out towards area 51 in a KHOLE. Thats the name of the magazine... K-hole poker ... Khole poker is poker tha eliminates the AHOLES..

our hole is better than theirs..... if some graphic genius could make the "O" in poker resemble a hole and then tie it to the k graphically we would be using the graphic tricks of the masters of the universe......

P OK ER

the sheep can think it means OK poker... because that's the level on entry to our dark and deranged world..... advertisers can be head shops and legal weed dispensaries and we just distribute them ourselves drop shipping them to accomplices in poker rooms who slide 10-20 copies into the rack surrupticiously...

I've got more, but we didnt do the cat tranquilizers yet...

The first issue could be a podcast from the desert i mentioned or could be two kholes looking for the magican at burning man.... that sounds like a lot of fun!

PM me doOD!

Regarding the JJ hand...

You are polarizing your range by limp / 3 betting the aggro BB. If you you raise after the button limps it could be wide range just trying to isolate the button, which the aggro BB will then attack and you can 4 bet him which he will either flat or 5 bet all in (best scenario) weak thinking he has fold equity. Even if he calls your 4 bet you can take almost all Aces out of his range b/c he'd prob 5 bet shove AQ and AK and fold AJ.

Roll my $82 over. I think you shouldn't play the $250 nightly that starts at 5pm day b4 milly gtd. It prob has a sub par structure, prob won't have that great of a prize pool, and any kind of deep run will have you up all night. You're gonna need your rest for a deep run in the milly gtd. Just my opinion, regardless of what u decide roll it over and keep doing what you think/know is right. GL out there.
