I know this is a little crazy but check this. I'm 25 tall , and very good looking, with a good job infiniti g35 sedan , but for some reason I want everything to be perfect. I want the baller car and big house and big muscles to go with the rest of what I got. I'm at a point right now where all this poker has kinda taken my game away with women, so I'm trying to get that back too.


In some odd way I feel like you too with the last part...perfect, big house etc etc.

Let me know what you guys think of my plans and if theres any other baller things I should consider doing
7k hands is not a sample size. 100k is a start at an accurate sample size. But props on that streak at 50NL...and 200NL is much tougher so GL there.
DO NOT get a lease for a car. The variance gods will punish you for this, just buy a used S4 or an M3 or something else baller that you can afford.

and buy a sick flat screen to play on IMO

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

Yea I already got the new Dell and 27 inch lcd screen to play on, i got a 51 inch plasma tv in my room, my apartment just sux balls, I need to move and get and get an audi s5 by this summer. Do you think I'm better off crushing double or nothings 20 at a time and taking down easy money, or really trying to learn cash games to make more money, or both?

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

THe numbers are deceiving. I've played a number of 1000 dollar, 555 dollar sngs, and played too many 100 dollar double or nothings at once. I was at like negative 5K then i got frustrated and mad at myself for being an idiot with great talent and no profits, smartened up, and I"ve been crushing donks since.

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

As much as I like a good crash and burn story, I think OP is a bit delusional.

OP finally got out of debt, and now wants to put himself 50K in debt again right off the bat. Not going to be a fun way to live when you will only be able to predict that you can earn $4K/month but downswing and variance are inevitable and who knows what else life will throw at you in the meantime.

Its perfectly OK to have a goal in mind, but I think until you can actually "achieve" what you say you will with consistency, I'd hold off from throwing that much on a car.

And also another big problem for you is your money/bankroll management. You say you're throwing $500-$1000 on SNGs and also got into debt originally by betting big amounts on sports. I don't think this problem is going to be solved overnight. Another month down the road, you could be having a sick downswing of a month, and may try a hail mary by playing larger than your roll allows or again making a sick degen bet to help recover for the month. This is the type of stuff that will get you further in the hole in the future.

GL OP.

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

Whats the best place to invest in the market then? I've gotten over my crazy hail marys, that was a yr or 2 ago, now im more steady with my double or nothings or sngs. I have a job that pays 60k a yr, so technically 600 a month for car payments isnt out of my budget, but I'm just saying with at least 4k coming from stars and a good 3200 a month from work a month that at least 7200 a month being as worst case as possible. WIth that kind of money I can afford aston martins and audi r8's but I"ll wait 3 years before I start doing things like that

So for now the most important question is what car should I buy to be as balla as possible between 30-50k and it can be 2-3 yrs used.

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

buy AAPL b4 new iphone officially unvelied june 7th and also sell day b4 unveiling. then buy NIO and leave $$$ there earning tax free income each and evry month. Etrade is fine. I use it.

keep G35 till you show 6 solid months of the online profits you boast of. prove to yourself that you can do what you say.

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

First it helps if you learn to spell the name of the brand of car you want. Ignoring that there is as close to zero as possible chance of you doing this have you considered the difference in maintenance and insurance costs between the Audi and a Maserati?

As someone who drives an expensive car I can tell you that odds are you'll be quite shocked at what stuff for the Maserati costs.

I can afford the Maserati but I just want to weigh my options. For a guy in my situation who can bring in about 7200 a month after tax and plan on renting a balla bachelor pad with friends, what would be the car for me?

Re: Cars Apartments and Investing

How much is an oil change on a Maserati?

How much are tires?

What would insurance be?
