This morning started out with me looking over some hands.Â I needed to pass some time before I went to my counselor appointment at 9am.Â I need to start making enough money to make a living.Â I'm relying on my parents as a crutch and I need to stop being dependent on others.Â So over the next few days I'm going to try and get into contact with some people that I know that make a living playing poker and see what it really takes.Â I'd like to have a goal in mind and stop kidding myself in that I can make a living playing a mediocre amount of poker at low stakes.Â I'm going to add up all my bills that need to be paid each month and get a number in mind.Â This month I kinda got behind because I didn't make money for about two and a half weeks.Â I'm pretty much back into the flow of things and I've moved up to the $12 STT's as you already know.Â If anyone that makes a living off of poker and knows what it really takes to make poker a career, you can PM me, comment below, anything.Â If you would like to help a guy out, I would forever be grateful.
When I got home from my appointment I started playing poker immediately.Â I played four sets.Â Then I went golfing with my brother.Â He got me a gift certificate for a free round for my birthday, so we decided to put it to use.Â Weather was awesome and it's the nicest course in town.Â The 17th hole is a par three with an apple shaped green. My brother decided to take a picture of me.
I proceeded to hit an awesome shot and make birdie, which is a first for me on that hole.Â It's nerve racking with the island green. Overall I shot 101 on the day. Which is bad, but not awful for me.Â It would help if I wasn't a horrible putter.
I got home around 8pm and played two more sets of poker.Â I was falling asleep so I decided to stop.Â So I guess I can look at my results.Â I'm going to combine yesterday's and today's. I played 109 games.Â Made two and a half buy-ins.Â Ok... I'll take it.Â I've been running horrid it seems like.Â Heads-up especially.Â Sick how many 2nd places I get. That's ok though, I go through spurts like this.Â Soon enough I'll go on a sick run of firsts.
