She usually will recommend an adult dog to people that have never had a dog. Puppies are hard to raise and you really don't know what you're gonna end up with, even if you do everything right. If you know the dog and get along with it, I'd say its a no brainer.

Curious why people say DEF get a puppy, can you ask them for reasons? One thing about pets, everyone thinks they're a ****ing expert, but most have no idea what they are talking about. Kinda like poker!
Hey thanks again for the advice.

Ehm i think it's because it's a rottweiler. A lot of people think these dogs can turn easily and if you have kids, it might be better to have a pup growing up with the family so it's more familar. Ofc there's no guarentees but it makes a little sense to me but i'm DEF no expert and far from it.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

And mersenneary joins the ranks of 2+2 HU forum regs that I ran like god against.

:/

Couple interesting spots, but once blinds hit 25/50 everything was pretty standard. Not sure about the call with K9s though. That might have been bad. I usually dump it, but I figure you're reshoving a lot more often than most people, who just flat a lot even with shallow stacks, and want to play poker.

She says that what matters is the temperament of the dog, which you can tell if it is an adult by putting it in controlled situations with kids to see how it acts. With a puppy you need to research its family to see if they have any behavior problems. If you get a puppy and do everything right, it could still chase skateboards and growl at kids. Nature is way more important than nurture in these cases.

Translation: Get the adult dog if it is what you want, if you MUST have a puppy, get one where you can research the dogs family tree in some way. Don't get a cute one from the pet store that seems nice, you may get lucky but not likely.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

fwiw i'm defenitly planning on playing 3k games in one month on ftp once i live alone (should be around september probably, nothing sure though)
it'll obv won't work on the 550s due to lack of action but 110s or maybe even 220s should defenitly be doable

Edit: playing two tables at around 15 games per hour would only require like 7 hours a day which is okay-ish obv.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

Should be a directory for $50 a listing and threads should be at least $500 for the year then.

Training sites should pay $1000 or so for all that exposure and coaches that want to promote videos or books should pay additional fees.

Everybody wins there, 2p2, low stakes players (most low stakes or part time coaches would advertise for $50 in the directory stickied in the forum) and the guys that want to really make this a business.

Most of the time 30-40 hours a week. I just dont get why pro poker players only play like 20 hours a week orso. 30-40 hours a week is just a normal work week. Take it serious or find a real job imo. Btw im mostly 3 tabling.
Haha, didn't you see how lazy us Americans are when you visited NYC?

couldnt find dibasios post so i'llj ust quote yours

playing poker (i.e. A-B game poker) 30-40 hours a week is NOT the same as working some standard 9-5 job

i wish i could put in 30-40 hours a week and keep my focus like dibasio, but i can't. while i am one lazy ****, i would put in those kind of hours for poker if i could.

unfortunately, i can't. so instead of giving up poker and working a 9-5 for 40k/yr, i play poker 15-30 hours a week and make 100-150k+/yr

and live baller
