Things picking up

So been playing pretty well this week, put in a few K hands (4ish) running at 11bb/100 for a decent amount of money. Did a $150 empire bonus too. Roll is now looking healthy at $1.12K , I also have $150 set a side for some living expenses once I get back to the UK (cashed out of bankroll) and have another $70 that I should be adding to the roll once Bromley pays me back what I won off him in a live game a few weeks ago. Back in the UK Friday morning, so once i re-adjust and settle back in will be good. Probably have a laid back weekend and then starting Monday will begin a 60 hour week on 25NL, and if all goes to plan will be able to move up after that :-D Not gonna really post any numbers until end of month but will keep updating this bad boy

Also was reading some stuff earlier, very true words of wisdom:

Going pro isn’t about replacing a cushy 40 hour a week job. Going pro is about doing whatever it takes to be successful. If that means putting in 60 hours a week at the tables and another 20 a week studying, posting hand histories, and improving your game, that’s what you have to do. The only time you can really consider slowing down is when you start making so much money that putting in additional hours has no real impact on your lifestyle. When you’re making $100,000 a month and living on $5000 and have socked away enough to retire three times over, okay, maybe you cut back to playing 30 or 40 hours a week....

Going pro isn’t about playing poker all day with no boss. Going pro is about having a boss (you) who needs to push himself hard enough to keep the business growing.
