Right now I can't buy even Groceries and pay bills lol.
I left Stars, wanted to deposit at William Hill, but they didn't accept my money because I opened USD acc and was depositing with £ bank acc... I tried 4 (x$1500) times and it told me the deposit is not accepted every time and my WH acc shows $0.
Next morning I check my bank account and my available balance on all my money is £0, there is some bug in the system that processed the deposit all 4 times even though WH didn't accept any of them and I don't even have the money in my account for 4x$1500 (duh).
So right now I am both RL and poker busto...completely. I spent over 10 hours trying to solve this with WH and my bank support and it is possible I will not have my money until next Wednesday if even that. Right now my GF needs help with her dissertation (and is pushing me to work on it) on top of that so I will most likely zone out of poker until I get my money back...There isn't a 100% guarantee and it really would suck playing my regular stakes being stressed like that and I just can't feel like studying either because of this bs (and I can't pay my gym bill either so can't really work out, I will at least try to go for a run).
On top of that I over worked out on Wednesday (went for brutal strenght routine followed by 20 pools and 15 min sauna), my Internet went out for a whole day and I had to fiddle with it and I was having trouble with sleeping most likely because the stress and the workout.
Uh, and of course Cashout curse followed on Stars (I left 10BI for NL50 behind, I cashed out the rest since, the night before all my money got blocked....)
Oh well - life is funny sometimes, but you can be sure I will keep working as hard as ever even if I lose that money (which I shouldn't really), I am getting into Mathematics of Poker, and also bough Peak Performance Poker (kinda meh book if you did your own research into nutrition and excercise, but good for recap. And i like the approach that excercise is not something good for you, but something you have to do , like breathing)), and started watching Giggy's videos for fun because I just like his voice and how he always says 'Tree Bet'.
This also means that The Awesomes will not take off just yet, as that group is going to be epic and I intend to give it 100% attention to get it on the right track from the start and I wouldn't be able to do that right now.
/end rant, peace DC
