Month End

So it's already been a whole month as a pro. Went by pretty damn quick. But I've been enjoying it.

I had to post a letter early in the morning yesterday, and as I was walking back from the post box to the flat I saw all the people in suits and such waiting for their bus into work. I smiled to myself, not because I think less of people who work in offices but because I am happy to be taking a break from that world.

I don't miss the commute. I don't miss the banal social pleasantries exchanged with so-called 'workmates'. I don't miss the massive overhead of administrative work and policy that comes with working for a large company. With poker, work equals reward. It's a vocation in it's purest form, and I love it for that very simplicity. You put in the time and the effort, and over time you get to reap the respectable bounty.

In other words, I aint got cold feet yet. I've started well and I mean to continue improving. Sure I've made lots of mistakes. But I've learned a tonne, and am feeling capable. Next month is like a blank canvas... or maybe a blank spreadsheet. I'm gonna paint it black.

No new posts in awhile, how is the pro tour treating you?

Aren't you due for an update?

Very nice results! If you consistently get results like that, you will be well over 6 figures! How much of a bankroll do you think one should have before going out on a limb and trying to play poker professionally?

SubZero said...

Am playing anything from $1/2 to $3/6, with anywhere between 3 and 6 tables on the go. Hopefully when I get my bankroll going on FTP I'll be playing only $2/4 or higher...
