Retirement at last!!

Starts tomorow. I've given the the day to day operations to my kids and will just be a call away with any problems that could occur. Both good kids and I feel very confident in them both.
Always loved sports and poker.. Thirty five years ago was a total degenerate casinos, sports and always wanted to become a professional gambler. The birth of my son changed all that and was then I started my own business and with hard work became a success. With my wife's blessing I'm able now to try and pursue my dream.
Looking online I came across this great site with all of the info and great free contests I joined. I've depoisted online and will be playing online poker starting at the lowest stakes being I've never played online before. Also purchased poker tracker to help with my game. Sports bets with a local ive connected up with and casino for live poker.
So here we go! Going to start with some online .05/10 and placed my first bet in years.
Jazz -4 -110 110/100
Be back tomorow with more picks and a update on tonight's online poker.

Re: Retirement at last!!

Congratulations and good luck!

A few questions. Around how many hands have you played online to date, and at what stakes? Would you say you've played online a fair amount in the last 2-3 years?

Set the alarm for 9, still woke up at 6. After so many years the body has its own built in alarm clock! Me and the wife heading out to the Coney Island aquarium. Haven't been there since I was a kid. Hit my sports play and won $5.52 online!!!!
Thanks for all the well wishes. I did play online many years ago on paradise poker but this is the first time in many years that's why I starting at the lowers level. Be back later with some MLB games. How do you upload pictures here?

Re: Retirement at last!!

I would suggest that you take 10nl more seriously than anyone would in the Paradise days (i.e. not at all). The worst players from the 2000's have mostly gone broke or given up, leaving a pool of much better players on average, even at this level. There are still fish, but not tables full of fish.

You can utilize tinypic.com if you only want to do one at a time, but that's annoying as hell.

I recommend one of the below:

imgur.com : you can make an account or upload pics without one. Account makes it easier to keep track of them

photobucket.com : slightly more annoying than imgur, but the classic option.

Re: Retirement at last!!

How do I just put the picture instead of the link? Fun day to bad no rides or games open yet. I'm a sucker for the horse race and water ballon game. Aquarium was nice. They are making it all new and when done will be a even better place to take the family too.
1-0 last night +$100 sports betting. $5.52 online poker.
Today I gave 2 early MLB games and a slight lean late game.
1st play reds -115 175/162.50
Like the kid Garett and reds 5-1 on the road. Snapped that 4 game losing streak and
I think Garza is done. Reds get revenge dropping 3of 4 at home.

2nd play. O's ev 175/175
Jimenez bounced back last outing pitched 7 strong innings.
Rays 1-6 on road like there a different team
Some online poker later glta!

Re: Retirement at last!!

Day 3. Slept a little later was up at 630 lol. Soon I'll be able to sleep a little more. Wanted to start cleaning up backyard but rain here in bklyn have to wait for another day. Started looking over today's MLB action got 3 leans waiting for better prices. 1-2 yesterday even got the week on sports. Played some online .05/10 last night and won $11.08. Up $16.60 feels like old times. Playing super tight game seems too easy. Hope to get out Friday or Saturday for some live 1/2. About to eat the best pizza in bklyn. Highly recommended! Be back later with MLB picks.

Re: Retirement at last!!

Too much time on my hands! Up early again. Was up late watching dodgers, the jazz game and some online poker but my body clock is killing me. Another rainy, dreary day here in bklyn. Going to eat some of the squares left over from yesterday. The wife wants to go to the mall get some summer clothes etc. I guess that will kill a few hours.

4-3 sports yesterday -23.40. Ytd 6-5 -23.40. Played 2nd half Utah didn't post 69/62.70 helped out. Wife went out last night so needed to bet on what I was watching. Two tough losses with both Keyshaw and Cole. No run support for either. On a night note 550 hands played with a 42.02 winrate bb/100. I have a large enough bankroll to move to .10/25 but it's been years and I figured I would play at least 5000 hands first before I moved up.

Off to the mall. Got 1 play for the afternoon
ASTROS -105 75/71.40. Hous 8-2 L10 7-2 road hottest team in MLB!
Glta!
