I'm also going to use it for any $2/$5 NLHE session I play this week.
Also, if "The People's Bankroll" gets low I will grind $1/$2 NLHE to bring it back to a healthy level.
It's not going to all be used on tournaments.
"The People's Bankroll" is currently at $4,725.
Which means each 1% share is worth $47.25.
Sorry, I haven't been updating this thread lately.
I'll buy any shares back at $60.00 a piece price before I play these tournaments.
I haven't been able to travel as much as I like lately. But, I will be able to more soon. I am on a 8.5k upswing at $2/$5 cash and I am hoping to transfer that success over to this thread as soon as possible. I owe all you guys for investing in me and I don't intend to disappoint.
If you are invested in me and feel that offer isn't fair or slighted in any way please post.
Now that I've finally conquered $2/$5 and am averaging $45+ a hour over my last 500 I truly intend to play more donkaments so I can force the donkament world to take notice and all you bastards who invested in me can have your day.
I actually plan to make some one off threads soon for bigger events ($1000+) as well.
So, I want an A+ reputation in the staking community for providing fun, being fair, and paying back stakes as promised as soon as funds are requested.

Anyway, I think I promised you all at least 4 cash game sessions a month on "The People's Bankroll" and that sort of fell by the wayside as I've been playing 100% $2/$5 NLHE and some of you had expressed concerns in the past about me playing at that level on your dime. I also haven't traveled to play any tournaments. So, I've had no chance to combine my $1/$2 NLHE action with tournament play and fulfill my promise.
So, why we figure out a fair deal and how to make everyone happy you'll all be freerolling in the tournaments I plan to play today and Thursday.
We'll have this issue resolved by Friday and action in this thread will start picking up because I plan to play these events in Toledo and in the upcoming Chicago Poker Classic.
Thanks to all for being patient and hopefully 2015 is the year I can piece us off our first big score.
Now it's time to $hit, shower, shave, and leave Grandma Marge's because we stayed here last night so we could watch "Better Call Saul" with her.
As you all saw we bricked the Chicago Poker Classic Main Event.
We had $1,000.00 of "The People's Bankroll" in play.
"The People's Bankroll" is currently at $4,825. ($48.25 a share.)
I will buy shares of myself back at a value of $70.00 a share if any of you want to sell.
I will not sell shares of myself at any price at this time.
If you want to buy a share you can make an offer to another investor who owns a % piece of me who may or may not want to sell off.
For a share transfer both the buyer and seller of the % piece of me must im me on here to make the transfer official.
I will be playing the first of two $2/$5 cash game sessions (to take place in last ten days of March) on the bankroll today at Motor City Casino Detroit.
In April I will announce upcoming tournament schedule, plans for the World Series of Poker, and a set in stone cash game schedule to be played on the roll.
Don't worry, all of you who have been patient are going to be rewarded.
I fully plan to run this bankroll up to 15k+ and take shots at as many WSOP events as possible that I feel are in my wheelhouse. I'm going to be taking my writing to the next level as well. All the blogs/etc will be right here. Even considering a road trip again. Lots the bull has been thinking about. Grandma Marge even said "Don't you come visit me again until you have a 10k+ tournament score under your belt. Stop letting all those backpacking toolbags beat you."
So even Grandma said knock these scarf wearing fgts out.
Sat way too long at a table full of nits, tags, and $hit regs on $200-$300 stacks.
Didn't table change because the other two tables line ups weren't any better.
Didn't win a hand of signifigance.
Value owned myself with AK on a Ad 10d 4c board betting pot on all three streets in a raised pot against a nits perceived AQ or AJ. Of course he rolls 1010 on me and says, "Wow. I thought you might have had aces there."
Final board A 10 4 4 9. (Flush missed)
Also ran our QQ into KK against a **** regs $280 stack at one point.
In professional wrestling slang, the term job describes a losing performance in a wrestling match. It is derived from the euphemism "doing one's job." When a wrestler is booked to lose a match it is described as "a job." The act itself is described with the verb jobbing, while the act of booking (rather than being booked) to job is called jobbing out. Wrestlers who routinely lose matches are known as jobbers.
"The People's Champ" has been on jobber status for some time now when it comes to tournaments.
I've played in a few WSOP events, around twenty WSOPcs, five Venetian Deepstacks, one Heartland, and a couple smaller $300-$550 events at local casinos in my tournament poker career and have came away with the following results.
If it wasn't for me mixing in some of my cash game action with all my staking packages your hero would have jobbed away every last dollar of "The People's Bankroll" on tournament losses.
Thankfully, you've all been patient and despite my numerous attempts to buy back pieces of myself none of you have decided to sell your shares. This must be because you still believe the bull will eventually run wild and now's the time where your're going to be punished or rewarded for your faith.
I'd like to announce that moving forward I will be playing at least one $2/$5 NLHE session a week on "The People's Bankroll."
I'll also be taking shots at as many $330-$1650 events as possible without letting "The People's Bankroll" get under $2,000.
If the roll gets at or near $2,000 I'll declare a state of emergency and grind out as much $1/$2 NLHE as I need to get it back up to $3,000 or all the way down to busto.
The next tournaments I'll be playing for sure will be the following:
World Series Of Poker Circuit Event
(Harrahs, Cherokee, North Carolina)
Thursday, April 16th Event #1 $365
Friday, April 17th Event #4A $365
Saturday, April 18th Event #4B $365
Saturday, April 18th Event #4C $365
My plan is to keep crushing the $2/$5 NLHE cash games like I've been doing.
Cut a promo after I bring home a bracelet and end my tournament jobber status.
Michael Cole is the $hit poker news reporters, columnists, and article writers I'll ignore. HHH is FoxwoodPokerProMad. LivingoffZSun is obviously Chyna. Bad Ass Billy Gun is anyone else who doesn't believe in the bull.
The main reason I have kept my share is for what you stated above. I think you're a competent player and will eventually get a few good runs that last throughout a tournament. It can be hard to cash in large fields if you're not getting the cards. You can play the player all you want but eventually you'll need a good hand to win and most of your stories seem to be lacking the latter later in the tournaments.
