Looks like I will be playing in the big cash game on Wednesday. Sign me up boys! Sorry Mookie I will have to bail on you. It is really nice to have someone who believes that I can do well enough in this to invest a little bit in me. So for the rest of the week I will be shadowing Fuel and figuring out how that donkey plays so I can bust him and make my backer proud. Of course I will need to double up first as I am going to be buying in short.
In all honestly I am pretty excited to play this game. I may lose but playing for "real" money is going to be a nice new experience. Obviously it is a win-win situation for me and hopefully I can give some bling back to my supporter. I am not sure if I will ever play this game regularly. As a hobby I doubt I will have the time to dedicate to getting to those levels. Who knows weirder things have happened.
I feel like I am running super hot though. I just got some free money from Full Tilt and advertising day has also come. I have this great stake opportunity. I have been staying at playable levels for my bankroll with very few slips. Been deep in a few tourneys and tokens lately including last nights Riverfuckers 4th place. Good things happening so far. For now you will have to get your train wreck stories from this poor guy.
In all seriousness I could easily have been this guy. When I started playing poker I decided I would not put any money into it. I make good money at my day job and constantly do sidework for even more money so I could put some real money online. I am very self aware though in some ways and knew when I started I had a gamblers soul. Someone who can easily go off the deep end. So by keeping the limits small and forcing myself to grow a roll if I wanted to play I kept that side of my life separate from my personal life. All in all even if it makes my progress to higher levels slower I think it has worked out for the best.
