I've had a standing desk since 2013 and it certainly has helped me a lot, especially during the COOPs where I grind many days in a row for the longest hours I play of the year.

Unfortunately it doesn't exactly solve the lack of movement problem and with the way I grind, I couldn't put a treadmill under it or anything like that. When I stand I do some stretches and get a bit of movement in for sure, but hard to do much of anything while mass tabling shorthanded SNGs with tons of HU play involved and whatnot. I could start taking more of the MTT sync breaks so I could actually go walk the stairs or something quick, but then that cuts into my hourly which I don't like either

If I had a real solution I'd offer it. I gained during and lost after 40 pounds. Obviously I didn't have an effective working plan

Standing desk + handstands every hour, plus yoga every 2-3 days, plus good diet/restricted time-eating.

Congrats Devin!!

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

I'm averaging 50/week now, and probably still will. The savings will come from having to get ready for and drive too a job 3 less days each 2 weeks, having 75% more days off. I've worked 12s before. It feels like being off half the time. I've always felt the hardest part was waking up, getting ready, driving to, planning my day around work. After all that working 8 or 12 hours isn't much different. Having 3 or 4 days off is HUGE.

As written the schedule has one 8 hour day each 2 weeks for 40/week, but we all pretty much assume we will be working 12 that day, and maybe a 16 occasionally. It's a prison during low unemployment, we are chronically under staffed.

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

I definitely will, but it feels kinda like keeping a bar open every day because a few times a month a friend drops by. Course it would help if I found more interesting things to talk about when they do. I likely need to work on my game.

I've been thinking lately about that first sttf huc. I need to try and recreate players and bracket. I will never win against a more impressive field again, but the only person I remember beating is Dave in the final.

I believe the first big home game STTF tournament was at my house and I won. SFB got the silver medal.

God I miss the times when we would have 9 posts from 6 different people in the first hour of a thread started at 3am

Which event was it when we had the long talk in Irie's back yard AMT? She has a master's now, so it turned out well.

And Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Thanks for hanging in there and keeping the bar open.

Steve, I think that I still have the original brackets from the very 1st STTFHUC.

I'll look around and see, but pretty sure I can dig them up and send you a scan.

Good times to be sure.

Be happy, safe and loving this Holiday season.

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

Year endish global update, after 7 months of sporadic playing (including not at all for 3 months or so) I am about $600 higher than I was last update. Combination of losing interest/motivation for a while and playing Omaha while not probably being very good at it (based on short term results anyway). Still solid in sngs but get bored with them pretty quick. Been trying to look at it as job ish, see if I can make myself play more. Iracing is more fun though (another thing I'm not very good at).
