The other day, i finally made a large sized deposit on Bovada (of $112) instead of just a tiny one of the $20 minimum or slightly more. i hate to take anything at all out of my roll, but im sick of making multiple deposits and never having any money there. maybe its a mistake to put money there at all instead of just playing in the casino, but i always like to have something to do from home to make money.
and as much as id like to be in vegas right now--i dont want to go too far from reno til after the freeroll. now yes i know only 5 or less will make something really decent out of it, and yes i know that staying in reno already cost me over $350 tonight when u count what i lost in the big split poker machine after leaving the poker room up $347. (thats why im now at the Tahoe Biltmore instead of in reno for 3-5 days.)
But id like to think of it this way. 1. i need more tourny experience and i wanted to play at least one tourny during the time period of the WSOP. 2. i have a decent chip lead at the start. (along with the top 20 hours out of the 100 people). 3. i won the riviera tourny once for over $1700 and had to waste half of the money paying Herbie. 4. i think if i actually play my best in this, i just might have a shot. quite a few of the entries will be other people who dont normally play tournies and might not be shoving when down to very few BBs. should at least be able to make it to 40th for $100 if i dont take a bad beat early. 15th to 40th all get $100, so its pretty flat for an unusually large number of spots.
my biggest worry will be people colluding with each other in it.
also i bought in for $200 tonight at the Peppermill in the $1-2 game instead of the more standard buyin of $120 (or close thereabouts). it worked out too, i early on got it up to just over $300, and a couple hours later had it up to $656 at the hi water mark. when i eventually cashed out, i still had $547. Think of how much better my life would be, (and how much better medical care, accomodations, food and stress level id have) if i was averaging $200 profit per day (also known as $72,000 a year).
can someone explain why 72k a year is not profitable at $1-2 NL? shouldnt it be if someone buys in high enough amounts and puts in enough hours? i dont think even Pokerdogg is doing it and not sure why. i doubt anyone here is better at the game than him.
also if i move out of where im living, i might never be able to move back in at least without waiting for months. and as much as id like to be in vegas to see steathmunk, i dont want to be charged rent two cities at the same time. or be charged for a place i might not make it back to.
