I just realized I was being dumb and wasn't you. It was Money022. Not sure why I confused you two!

April has not been good. Almost went broke on Poker Stars. Was down as low as $40.... ouch. Dropped back down to $10nl and managed to get my account back up to $150 over the last week. A decent recovery, imo.Didn't play much on Absolute this month. What I did play, I lost a little, about $25, not so bad.So, My combined accounts gives me about $575, which puts me down about $130 for the month after you include the massive $5 rake back I'll get on Absolute and if you don't count the high I reached earlier in the month before I hit the big down swing.Still fighting though. Hopefully I can recover a bit more.

I'm hungry!

I almost bustoed on FT the other day after being up to $1.1k. Got as low as $25 (not counting the three STTs that I was playing at the time). That's kind of low considering my regular "levels" these days are $50/$100 STTs.I really need to call it a month. Got too much going on to put in any more hours. Overall, a pretty decent little month.

Posted Imageyeah so my first week of full time poker playing, I just got my account set up and I had to wire transfer money to the poker site which was kind of sketchy. Anywho I played 50NL and made $644 for the week, with bonus. Beats the pants off my regular job that I know...
Nice start,Didn't know you were going to give it a shot, you used to work for Amex right?I was thinking of making the switch PS->Tilt with RB and all but have gone to live play now.

yeah I finally got some cash out of an old loan that went I assumed I would never get anything from, sounds like instabankroll to me. My job hired efficiency consultants and it has sucked since, I am actually thinking about going back to school and getting my masters while playing poker... I think I can pull it off if I can get a decent amount in the bank to take the stress off.I am still playing $50NL because I am waiting for a check and it has taken been two weeks and I am still waiting. I am running at 9ptbb/100 with bonus it is a decent amount of money per hour.

Sir,you aren't forcing anything are you?Since you are on your own, I wondered.But I know you had a large rainy day fund. good idea*************No neck,my old company would try some new scheme, including Efficiency Efforts, about once per yr. Six Sigma was another one.So we had to list everything we spend at least 2% of our time during the yr.2% of 2000hr = 40hr. You'd be surprised how much of the day of an Actuary is not spent working on something that we need 40hr per yr to do. "Looking into why things look out of trend this qrt" seems like a big waste if time - but it's a pimary job, time wiseOld company: 5 CEOs and 2 Temp CEOs in my 8 yrsNew Company, 6 CEOs is 100 yrs. And no silly SixSigma crap.

Yeah I think the people we had were unfortunately not very bright, in order to figure out how much work was your "goal" they took your most productive day. Lets say that was 12 requests during an 8 hour day. Well then they figured that you were capable of that everyday so your goal should be 25% higher than your best day ever. Are they going to give you any additional resources to complete this? Noooo and normally the bosses use to be pretty laid back but then the consultants decided that people needed structured feedback so now they came around every hour to ask if you were going to make your goal. OOOO yea and everyday you got a "report card" of all the work you did on a previous day. Granted it is an entry level job but I still feel like a child. Hopefully this week I will make millions :club: Played a few hands this weekend up another $60 dollars or so with bonus.

That wasn't no_neck, that was me. I recall you said you knew how I played from FCP and that you knew the river killed you. That conversation make more sense now that you thought I was more active poster.Little late on my post. :club:
