It's been a while since my last post (with the whole asking about MTT and staking deal), finally got that all sorted sorta. Here's the happening in my poker career since.
My deal turned better than ever. 100% staking deal, with zero make up, at 35% juice. I'm currently 0/7.5 (I bought a 1500 on my own) for MTTs and have turned my backer slightly into the red now (clearing all profits from before). He has his doubts for the Main Event now (yikes). He wants me to front up $5K (which means I'll be raking him for 17.5%). I could sell the rest to friends and family and just front whatever else to get into the main. With the juice I'm getting off this guy + the profitability of the main event, perhaps I should play it at all cost? Or is it possible for me to pass given my situation? Personally I rather just stuff that $5K towards investments, which I will then turn for my future house (which is $1.5M most likely for the area I want).
Been doing well at 5/10 NL in Vegas. At $20K profit in 1 month (didn't play on several days, maybe more).
So I recently met my EX-girlfriend who I didn't speak a word to for YEARS, we somehow connected again in Vegas for a weekend, stayed at her suite (cosmo near penthouse level) and had a blast at the clubs and each other's company. But she had to return home and I'm still here for another 1-2.5 weeks. Since then, she's been dodgy and non-responsive, so I figured I'd just leave it at that (not spam text her after 3 lines of her not responding) and hit her back when I return home. I remember vividly, I was winning like $5K and I didn't even really care or feel it. I was like, I would trade in this $5K for happiness (assuming we dated again - the Road Not Taken - I have a curious mind of what if's). For the record, I caused the relationship to break because I was very immature back then and naive
Slap me back to reality. I've lived perfectly fine and without a thought of her for several years. Now that she's back for a single weekend, my fixative personality is overloading with her.
I assume selling action/pieces of myself online to strangers would be relatively hard without any online results/resume.
