The Road to Germany - Part 3

Here is where I get to talk a bit about the actual move - well, in relation to poker that is. It's weird, because while poker does occupy a big part of my life, but besides "Math Attacks" the last few weeks in the US and the first few in Germany had very little to do with it.

However, the US had a big influence in shaping my gambling mind, my view of things and people in the risk sense. When I travelled for Guatemala to Germany in for college, I learned to combine an often rigid, but thought-through process decision with the passion and magic realism that I brought from home. I was happy in that position. But the american viewpoint infused the willingness to expose yourself to luck and the (sometimes unwarranted) optimism to the equation.

For all intents and purposes I was returning to Germany jobless, with no real prospects of a job opening soon, yet I was confident I would find something soon. I can't see myself as a housewife finding neat recipes to cook for the evening; I enjoy eating a lot, cooking not so much, even though I'm quite good at it. And not to belittle online poker, but I think I wouldn't be a good online pro, I would play way too little, be satisfied with a 100$ day win, even those good days are the ones, where you should actually plow through, because of the potential bad ones.

Anyway, don't wanna brag, but am gonna, hah! I got a job again in research. Wasn't even that difficult. The guy offering it to me was even hesitant if it was under my market value (hah!). Not going to talk much about it here, but the balance between poker and science will continue and I will only marginally get better, because I can only work on my game during the evening when I'm already tired.

Ah yes, but playing poker I can finally do now, too. The relocating process with Pokerstars took a bit longer than expected. Mainly, because I don't have and don't plan on getting a landline here, yet they absolutely needed a landline to call. So after a few back and forth e-mails, they finally called me at a relatives house and after 3-4 verification days, everything was in order. I do have to warn you guys, that it takes a bit longer time than usual. I already had a german bank account, health insurance, a car, tenant lease and official documents with my residence in hand 3 days after we arrived, yet phoning for minutia (regarding the utility bill, e.g.) does take its time. Moneybookers and similar things take time, too, so be careful about that. 

About 2 weeks later, but with all the required documents ready this time, I sent in the relocation e-mail to FTP. They said something was missing (I think instead of a bank statement, they wanted a bank address confirmation) - that was Jun 28th. A well, I don't think I would've made it either way, I heard withdrawing took about 3 weeks. So my 1600$ remain on there. Thankfully I had withdrawn some about 10 days before Black Friday. And so now I wait, just as you guys do for FTP to get its act together. I don't know what the money there is worth nowadays, but I'm happy I didn't act on my impulse in early May wanting to buy up FTP funds on 80 cents on the dollar. Of course, not many people would've jumped upon that opportunity back then, the trade value was around 90 cents; now it's about 20.

Play on Pokerstars has been weird. With all the americans falling out, the site is infested with russians and germans that are usually good (belarus, ukraine make the list, too). Then there are the maniacal dutch and swedes. The still meh canadians and english, though not in big numbers. Yet all is balanced out by all the random countries that are left, especially the spanish have some of the most profitable fish there are. So all in all, the field has gotten polarized (either pretty good or pretty bad, not much in the middle) and about 30-40% less. I'm still sticking on the "low" tab of Pokerstars, but if I ever make it up, I will dread having only like six 5/10 games and maybe two 10/20. We'll see what happens.

Anyway, that's it from me from the old world now. That'll do it for my "moving to Germany" posts. I hope I can write some other stuff next week, for example, I was on "Deuce Plays" 2 weeks ago and would really like to talk about that some more, especially the fine line there exists between GTO and balanced play and why talking about the first one is futile, just because it hasn't been found yet in most cases.

PS: I'm going to play the 215$ LHE and the 320$ Badugi WCOOP events and am looking to sell some action (up to 40%). If you're interested and know me or can transfer money to Pokerstars, hit me up (no markup, I'm tourney fish, but those are my two good games).
