Woo hoo

Hey all, I finally got a new password, and will hopefully post more updates. I get sick of doing this all the time, but I'm thinking once or twice a week should be enough to fill you in on what's happening.

So I did it, I quit my job. The day the factory finally hired me, the day of my orientation, the day where I would be making 6 bucks an hour more than I did as a temp, I walked in the building, I asked to meet with human resources, and I told them I changed my mind. " I don't want this job, thank you ".

Here I am 2 and a half weeks later, and I love playing poker all the time. My goal for now is to make 3000 a month, and I had done that after the first week. However I have gone downhill since then with losing 700 bucks in 2 trips to the casino this week ( I need to just play poker, blackjack is definately a leak), and losing almost all of my 600 deposit on pokerstars.

I still have made money on fullcontactpoker though, and including those losses, I am still up 2000 since turning "pro". I seem to be doing well at 2/4NL shorthanded ring games, and 100 dollar 5 man turbo tournaments, so those will be the focus for me for the next week. I will play some multi table tournaments as well, but not as many as I have been playing. I've gone deep in a couple tournies, only to find myself busting out in 13th or 17th to bad beats, and just missing out on some big cash.

Well that's a lot of typing for me, so I will post again later.

Oh I also wanted to mention the 4200 I made on a trip to Connecticut, and 8000 on the Big Deal tourney on FCP. Those cashes gave me enough confidence, and enough of a bankroll to take my shot at doing this for a living. Ok I'm done now, later
