Okay, time to settle my tab:Party: $1494 (+$392) -- NLHE$25,PLO$25, $10, 2-table SnG's(R.I.P Donks!!)Interpoker: $795 (+$35)-- NLHE$25,PLO$25,LHE .50/1.00(R.I.P EuroDonks!)Absolute: $1655 (+$302) --LO8 2/4, Stud8 2/4, $10 NLHE Sng's (1 table)Bodog: $1430 (+386)-- NLHE $25, NLHE $50Pokerstars: $673 (+73) -- 1/2 HORSE , 1/2 HOSE (Started mid month)Full Tilt: $630 (-$35 :D ) --PLO$25,PLO8$25, 1/2 LO8, 1/2 Stud8(also started mid month)Woo hoo! :D Up $1153 for the month. Finally reached the 2/4 games at Absolute, doing alright so far (they seem tough). Just jumped to $50 NLHE at Bodog, looks gooey soft so far. :club: I'm pretty proud of my totals considering I multi- table and practice zero table selection, for the most part. Starting to think reading the strat sections is really paying off. Just gonna try and keep the train rollin' during the next month. Alright, I'm done bragging, time to hit that November downswing head-first !! :D

can i ask why you would rent an apartment for a year if you can project profits of 10k a month?

then can i ask another questionhas the thought of getting a loan to buy some property somewhere exotic/tropical ever crossed your mind?think of it this way. lets say you are now rent free since u payed in full. You make 5k a month just to be really fair. You have a few payments, for food, car insurance and fun.. you're still easily sitting with 3k a month in profit, turn that into a guess of 30k profit for the year of disposable income, which 50% could go into your roll to jump limits, and the other 50 would have been paying down some property somewhere that you can A-sell, B- eventually move too. and C- use as asset

October Results:Net Profit: - $670Interestingly, PT shows a profit of $580 in cash games for the month, playing only ~7000 hands, from 0.5/1 to 5/10 LHE and 25 to 200 NL.That means that I'm down almost $1250 in the rest, which is probably 95% tournament buyins, and the rest being staking ventures.Tournaments for me clearly sucked this month, as it took me until the last week of the month to even cash in one. In the end, I managed to cash in a few, including a 10th place finish in a $11 MTT, which was the sickest beat ever, in terms of timing, when my above average stacked AA ran into the chip leaders massive Q6 soooted all in on a rainbow board of T6x and runner runner flushed me.I also FT'ed a 180 man at the end of the month, but was short stacked and went out 9th when my CO open raise of A6s ran into the buttons AK.So, in all, I didn't play as many hands of cash games as I would have liked, and I also did very poorly in the MTT's I played in their place.********************November Goals:Go back to focussing on cash games, probably $100 NL for now. I'd like to have a nice $4000 month or so, if I can stop skimming for a bit, and move up to $200 NL at some point. I'd like to get in maybe 20k hands.I would also still like to play some MTTs as I feel I definitely have some game, and I'm just like one race (or AA vs Q6 holding up) away from a nice score.Also, I bought the 8gb Ipod with my FPPs, and I'm already back up to almost 9000, so my new goal for that is a new monitor, either the 20" for 36000, or I may go all out and wait for the 24" for 68000.Edited to add, starting BR = $830.Anyways, I'm glad October is gone, and I look forward to running well in November.Good luck all.Oh, one more goal, find somewhere to sleep at night, as apparently I got kicked out of my house.....loooooooool- Zach

paying rent is not as big of a deal as most people think. in most cases, its actually cheaper, since the equity you gain by paying interest on a mortgage or other loan does not make up for how much higher mortgage/loan payments are than rent.
Long signatures are really annoying.

are you forgetting about appreciation?and tax breaks?if you'll be in the house more than N (where N is somewhere around 5 yrs) a house is cheaper in the long run..well..depends on market, I guess.
