I set a goal at the beginning of the month to play 28 hours of poker and make $400 from poker play alone. I had one bad day last Sunday when I lost $235 trying to clear the Party reload bonus, and I only played 200 hands. I will continue tonight to play my remaining hands in order to get the bonus and cut down my loss a bit but I am not too happy about losing that much in an hour.
I have currently made $205 this month from poker in 19 hours of playing time. My table hours will be closer to 60 which is the key to playing part time, you need to play more tables to make it worthwhile. I've managed to clear around $700 this month in miscellaneous bonuses, referrals, but no rakeback yet. I should get a nice start to next month on the bonus front because of the mansion bonus where I have locked in a profit of atleast $1000 and it could jump up to $2000 if Pittsburgh manages to cover. That should bring my bankroll to 11k - 12kish for a short time period before I cash out some.
My other Idea is to let the extra 1k ride if Pittsburgh wins by sitting at a 5/10 NL table and taking a shot. I think its a very stupid idea but it might be fun to say I lost or won a grand in one night playing way above my head. I would probably set up a PSO chat night and let the railers know my cards so they can witness the good the bad and the ugly. Ill keep you posted on what I decide.
I'm also off to Los Angeles and San Francisco this Sunday for my company's world conference. We are renting a convertable to drive up from LA to SF on the coast. It should be a great trip and I will have lots of stories I'm sure. This also means no updates from Sept 3 - 9th. So just in case this is my last post I will leave you with the best pick up line of all time.
My buddy turns to a girl at the bar and with a straight face says:
"I drive pro go carts"
The girl doesn't know what to say since he is in a shirt and tie so he follows up with:
"they go pretty fast"
At this point shes laughing and he still has a stright face, he gets her number in under 45 mins.
