Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

Global update. Won the $5k freerollish mtt, up to $859 now ☺

Felt good to win a large field mtt again, even if it was for peanuts comparatively

Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

congrats lacky.
now, seriously, go grind it out and realize there is still an easy living (or good side income) to be made from this game. even in the US

i'd love to read more updates from you about this, btw. if you would do the community the favor of keeping some kind of log

I dunno, that sounds like the definition of boring.

Date: duration: game: won/loss $XX

Repeat, repeat, repeat

I have a spreadsheet with 8 years of that. Its as boring as it sounds.

Bit of backgound Jon, some of us are doing a global poker challenge. You get $2 free when signing up. The challenge is seeing what you can build to having never deposited. Its an agonizingly slow process with lots of luck involved early on.

Lol, if I'm not playing for a living anymore I might as well make it fun and stress free. That said, it's damn nice to finally be out of the micro stakes.

It's damn nice to see you around again. Don't be a stranger. This thread is the same as it always was, just a random collection of bullsh*t chatting.

I check in and see Gramps and Microbet, Lackey winning tournaments, and FJ popping in.

I played a home game last night with The Usher and G-P. Apathy was even supposed to be in town.

2008... 2018... whatever. Iíll tell skipper to fire up the Forumbot account.

Still go sailing as often as possible... even had a trip with de captain relatively recently. But some career changes have probably put it off a bit... with the hopes of a bigger boat some day.

Re: **&#@$** 2018 STTF POOP TALK THREAD **^%~*

Mine is constantly shifting. Wife decided we should go, Cassidy decided we should go, working on details/timing. Of course along with wifey rupturing her ACL (sergury next month), and her trying to decide if she should go to school for an RN.

Getting everyone on board with the idea is a big step in the right direction, so a lot more likely than it was. I have one more year to be vested in my pension, so wouldn't happen before summer next year regardless of anything else anyway.

Hoping, hoping

(I'm a smallish 35-40, old, cheap boat dreamer)

Edit-added random details.

Rachael (oldest daughter) is a doula now in Vermont
Erin is completing her master's degree in economics (of gambling) at UNR this spring.
I'm still guarding da inmates

Anybody else following all the rocket launches that have been happening recently? The simultaneous landing of those 2 boosters a couple weeks ago, and the attempt at parachuting the fairing (nosecone at top) down to a capture ship are just incredible.

Agreed, I'm pretty excited about the global high speed internet using low earth satellites plan. There is a lot that can be done if the launch part gets cheap.

Nice work Lacky. At what point will you start cashing out?

Nice!

I didn't play for a couple of months, but put a few hours in this week and I'm at $258. Bankroll growing at a glacial pace.

Probably 5k, that would be plenty to play whatever I feel like playing. If I get nervous about the company at all that will adjust down.

I had the same problem at the micros. The amounts didn't really matter so I didn't play lots.....

Gramps, yeah, I'm pretty much grinding part time at this point. My tablet will only handle 3 tables before it bogs down. I either need to get a better tablet, get my old computer/office set up again, or both. I kind of like playing on the tablet. If a newer one handled 6 to 8/9 tables I might stick with that.

Would an Asus zenpad 3S 9.7 inch work guys? Its like $300, not bad if it would. Right now I'm using a 4 yo 8 inch LG G pad 8.1.
