So I haven't posted in a while, standard. I've been on a sick heater the past few weeks that include in a win in the FTP $1k Monday for $66.5k, an Aruba package worth $8.5k ($5.5k buy in $3k travel), and about 8 other scores for about $45kish. By far the peak of my poker career so far was the $1k Monday win. I feel I played every situation pretty optimally and got lucky in a few key spots. It's hard to realize how much money it really is since I had some makeup with my backers and was only get a %. The recent success I've been having has allowed me to quit my backers and play on my own which is awesome. My backers were great, it was just time for me to move on so I could earn 100% of myself.
Whenever my next check from Pokerstars arrives I will be on my way to Reeds Jewelers to purchase this: !!!!! It's $5200 but since I'll be paying in cash I think I can cut off a few hundred. This is the submariner but with a solid silver pearl band and a black face. I tried it on in the store and it is quite the timepiece.
I booked a room in the Lodge at Turning Stone for June 9th-19th. I'll be there for the Heartland Poker Tour which should be fun with a $1k and $2500 event. I have a pretty busy next 4 months coming up. I'll be going to TS for 10 days. Immediately after TS I'm taking a flight to Vegas to stay for a week with various friends but to start off with just Kush and Aaron. I'm 18 so can't play so I'll just go to torture myself. I think I can get some sort of fake ID that I'll be able to play some live cash sessions and get into a few clubs. After I take a break in July, TS has another tournament series in August. This series has a siiick schedule though including a $300 6-max, $200 rebuy, $1k, and a $5k. WSOPE isn't 100% but I really plan on going to that in September. Late September, early October, I'll go to play in the Aruba Classic.
I'll post some TS updates and try to keep track of tournament stuff as a routine will help me focus like I know I can. I'll post more as I forgot my password again then somehow was logged in all of a sudden. I'ma life donk.
