I think this depends on what affiliate you have. With some of them you used to be able to carry a negative balance and then it would go away at the end of the month. Mine used to be that way, I don't believe it is anymore.

Sounds pretty sweet. I just started at FT so I'm still waiting to get 5k points. I'm really looking forward to getting there. I have done a few sessions with Split and I really want to see his videos and the new Ed Miller ones.

MMA related (Very LC skip if you're not into it haha)

Yeah, MMA is a great hobby on a bunch of levels. I was on a ski trip recently and some drunk douchebag was harrassing some chic really bad. Being the gentlement I am I offered her a seat at our table (I was with my lady friend so wasn't trying to work any angles lol). Then the drunk guy started threatening to knock me out and flexing for me haha. He told me to be a man and give her back lol. He was visibly wobbly and I felt pretty reassured that I spend a fair amount of time grappling with people more bada$$ than him. Then my buddy I train got back with our next pitcher. Luckily we were only about a beer and a half deep so we still had enough sense not to escelate the situation - but maybe that would have been a better story. Tl;dr it's nice to know how to choke people like that unconsious just in case...

Also after starting work full time I notice a more flap in the midsection, cholesterol going up... an active hobby is a good thing.

I'm training at Southwest MMA which I found b/c my local dive bar is in the same place and joined it without much research into the school. Turns out it's such a good group of guys. If you are a fan of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, Efrain trains there - the guy who just won lightweight division. That's pretty bad@$$ imo I've only met him a few times though b/c all the pro fighters tend to train during the day when I'm slavin for the man.

I rolled and had lunch recently with a couple of the guys from this past seasons TUF.... I also found out last class(friday), that Team Brasa is coming into town in March to train before Pan AM... Pretty sweet get to get my ass handed to me by more black belts!

which is fine... because its basically like getting 100% rakeback while you have a bonus clearing.... so its not all that bad =/

Does anyone get a weird feeling when you open up a table and you have over 1k hands on someone and you don't ever remember playing with them? BTW, I don't datamine. Too many tables maybe.

YES! I'm wondering if that is a leak.... I keep meaning to go through my database and make notes on villains that I have over 1k hands with but playing always seems like a better idea than that when I actually have the time.

BJJ has been one of the best things for my life this past year. My two boys, ages 7 and 10, and I all train as well as my wife! This sport has so many physical and mental benefits it is unbelievable. It is basically physical chess. Robert Drysdale is doing a seminar at my school next weekend here in Texas. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go since I will be in Vegas at GSP vs. BJ Penn (poor me).

Check your promotions page. They're offering double points anytime you play 2 tables Jan. 26 to Feb. 1. You have to opt in. Unfortunately, I'm going to be traveling most of those dates.

Very nice... Its great knowing that I'm training under one of the best coaches in the world... and your description of physical chess is exactly right... Its by far one of the best things I've ever done... so much fun. On top of that I've lost 15lbs in my first 3 weeks. =) sucks you're going to miss his seminar, but if you will still be around Vegas, come on down to his gym and train with us. Talk to Sean your first couple classes would be free anyway... We train twice a day 12-1:30 and 7:00-8:30 - michelle, roberts wife teaches the kids class from 5:30-7

Bah. If I only hadn't fallen in love with rakeback or could make Platinum on Stars each month

From my sample on you ad it doesn't seem you are doing that well, and I have quite a sample size on you? I don't know whether my data on you is old but I don't seem to have many reads on you.

I have you as tight/weak but aggressive from the blinds, but a small sample size.

I know you're just trying to be nice SS, but I like your line like a million times better than ad's here. No offense, everyone has their bad moments. At least, I know I certainly do.
