Hi Tom10167, I am a student and my (side) job is one of my hobbies: spearfishing. I own 50% of the business and import spearguns from South Africa. It doesn't feel like a job because of the rewards: customers calling to tell me about their trips, the great service, and the quality of the products. I don't like it when people sell me JUNK so I make sure we stock only the highest quality goods.
For poker, I make money so I can do a few things: eat well, go on trips (spearfishing, to mexico, hawaii, florida, etc) and have money for entertainment. But I hate losing money, so right now I'm trying to see if I can discipline myself.
Chuck D, I may do that soon. I'm trying to pad my bankroll, I just don't like the idea of losing buy ins, right now I can handle a few bad beats at 200. I might go ape ***** if it's at higher limit, losing a couple grand. But then again the prospect of winning more is also there.
Played a few hours this morning (2am-4am)
So these are my stats from 6/27-6/28. I don't play that many hours a day. Maybe 4-5 sometimes 2 table.. sometimes 4 table. Really just depends if I think I can make money. But I lead a balanced life and I think that's more important than $: Working out, academics, Girls, hobbies, etc.
I'm really frugal, though, wanted to get a much needed new phone today since my old one's CHARGER is lost. This particular charger is no longer sold and I didn't want to buy a $30.00 phone that I didn't like, so I opted for no phone instead for another day. Going to Vegas on Thursday probably not to play too much. Just to party..See you guys on the tables, thanks for the continued advice. Still spending time trying to figure out all the functions of pokertracker.
