First â€“ despite a ridiculous tilt/too many table session where I dropped a boat load of BIâ€™s, Iâ€™m well ahead of all my monthly goals already, with a fair few sessions to go before the end of the month.
Considering this was the first time Iâ€™d set any real goals to follow through on, Iâ€™m now a little apprehensive about playing and falling back under my goals, as this would basically put me on life tilt. I realise how idiotic that is, so of course I will keep playing, but probably not with the same volume as I usually put in (Iâ€™m pretty close to hitting one of the iron man levels at full tilt, so Iâ€™ll be playing at least that much). Of course Iâ€™m also cognisant that the more I play the quicker I can get to the next level, which then has a compounding effect as you move the timeline forward in terms of progression. Ugh.
Another factor being that moving to the next level involves a 2.5x max BI jump rather than a 2x, so it takes a little longer than usual.
Second â€“ whoever decided that rakeback should be paid weekly gets a chocolate, much better to get smaller instalments that one big instalment at the end of the month in my opinion.
Third â€“ this makes me laugh and cringe at the same time. http://jamsym.blogspot.com/
Easily my new most fav blog, partly because of my approach to money is basically north/south when compared to this guy but also just the sheer lunacy that someone like that must have buried within. So much gamble. Although, heâ€™s obviously quite confident in his abilities, and only young, so being able to take 4k and turn it into 15 less than half a month later probably means heâ€™s entitled to take shots if he feels like it. His skill edge at 1/2 means that even if he were to busto his roll, getting a stake and getting back on his feet would take only a matter of weeks.
Probably helps that he doesnâ€™t seem to have any sort of RL obligations.
Probably getting TL;DR so Iâ€™ll end it here.
ps: wish the DC coaches would update their blogs more â€“ as an aside is there somewhere that I can track if they do?
