It's been some time since I've posted and I will show you the good, the bad, and the ugly. So much going on in my life. I'm not getting better but falling on the worse side. My insurance broker just fucked me when I changed my policy for this year they screwed up the paper work and I have no coverage. I found out when I went to get 2 prescription refills and they said $2349! And I have 4 more! Sign me up for the Isuldur1 challenge. I'm dangerous! Don't worry it gets better Ha!
I've been out of work since October if you remember. As of January I am officially 100% disabled (told you it gets better). I guess all this good news explains this
So sick. That includes my $500 black card bonus and $175 iron man bonus. Really I stopped all things poker January 16th after a nearly 5 buy in loss. Am I the only one who punts money like this? So I'm down to $330 hip hip hooray! No poker. No forums. No videos. No podcasts. Nothing. I needed to clear my head and figure out what's happening in my life. Everything is falling to shit making it just outright depressing. I don't wish to go into detail my health issues but I don't wish it on anyone. I'm 30 years old now who's health issues are unknown and getting worse, physically can't work, living at home depending on parents, and losing the one thing I made great sacrifices for which is the restaurant. Have to do something...
And that's what I did. My body might not be 100% but I have to get my mind right. I've been doing a lot of reading on Real Estate investing, finance, and business investing. I got an attorney to file for SSDI which I'll be lucky if I see anything within the next 16 months. It's not a whole lot of money when you put it to perspective, but it's something. Unfortunately I can not file for unemployment because I own more then 10% of a corporation. Luckily however, I made a deal with one of the partners who is looking to buy everyone out. I may not get a huge chunk up front, but I get most of it back in the 3 years it's spread out. Just waiting for his attorney to forward me the paper work so I can give it to my attorney. One thing I've realized just today is that once I'm no longer an owner, I lose the opportunity to find another group health insurance provider. I really need medicare or medicaid but unfortunately every number I got my hands on doesn't exist or I get the run-a-round. If anybody can forward me some information it would be appreciated.
Now for poker. I came back to play only to find that I am no longer a part of the poker group. Not a big deal to me. I have more important things to worry about and I only got the most of it when I do a one on one or a small group session 3-4 people. I started out 3 tabling 50NL and then mixed in some 25NL. I know what you're thinking but I have always played 50NL with a $500 bankroll and I've gotten this far. So what I've done differently is less tables of course, less preflop and more post flop play. My reads have been rediculous and when I'm on I'm unstoppable. I'll try to post some later this week. Though I may not be a part of a group, I'm always looking to sweat people and have people watch my game. Feel free to contact me. And now I release the BOOM SWITCH! Deuces!
