As some of you might know i have been on hard times the last couple of weeks and not been able to play to much poker. After losing 200 at quads place a couple weeks back that was the climax of a 72 hour 900 dollar loss. Since i am currently unemployed that hurt real bad and i had to pretty much stop playing at all and go on a job hunt(with very little success) That was three weeks ago or so.

So about a week ago i started playing again, I invested 50 bucks online and played in a 40 dollar N/L home game. I turned that 40 into a 100 and online i was able to flip the 50 to around 200. On saturday i played in a huge $10 home game tourney with 35 people and i placed second in the first tourny and 4th in the second tourney and made around 100 there.

After paying a few bills i was able to hit up the casino circuit again. I started with limelight yesterday where i played for 4 hours and only made $25 and used that to play their nightly tourny which i was knocked out of early so it was a break even day. Even though i didnt make any money it was a confidence boost to know that i can sit down at a casino and not lose all my money.

Today i started off at Ranchos and in around 2 hours i was up 100 but i wasnt really enjoying myself so i changed locations and hit up Don Juans and bought in for 60 and got their 20 bonus. In 2 1/2 hours i made 200.

So i made around 300 today and i am up a little over 500 in the last week. Also while i was at Don Juans i got a phone call for a job interview. I am just glad to be able to play cards again. I will be seeing some of you over at black sheep tommorrow.

After paying a few bills ....
PK,

I don't want to tell you how to live your life, but if poker and paying bills is coming from the same bankroll, you really need to consider your gambling habits. This is not at all a good situation.

There have been a few times when I've not played (or played less) because of "bad times" at the tables, but it had nothing to do with paying the bills. It had to do with my discretionary money being depleted. My beer, golf and ice cream money was gone, not my rent or grocery money.

I like you Kid and enjoy playing with you, but I would suggest that you to be real careful where you draw your stake money from.

I think it is wise info. that Hagar is dishing because I was thinking the same thing when I first read PK's post.

Look at it as friendly advice that PK might see a nugget of wisdom in or something he might just ignore and keep doing what he is doing.

No need to get hostile.

Not getting hostile. I just don't think it is any of Hagar's business comparing Hagars better than though way of life to the Kids and posting it on a public BB. If Hagar or you are that concerned then contact him directly instead of trying to make him look like a fool publicly.

It's non of your business and no comments are needed from any of you.

PK made the posting in a public forum regarding "hard times" and "paying bills" in relation to gambling and finally being anle to be back in the game. If you post anything in a public forum you leave it open to interpretation as well as scrutiny and the whole point of a public forum is to publicly converse about different topics in a civil way. As far as I am concerned, Hagar was completely civil in the way he offered the advice and did not have the intention of humiliating him.

If you want to take your own advice, it is not your place to speak on the behalf of PK until you actually hear a response from him. He might be thankful to hear advice from Hagar or like I said he can tell Hagar to STFU and ignore his advice. But at this point we have no idea what PK thinks about what Hagar said.

Glad ot see you're back Kid.
Knowing the style of cards you play, I didn't figure it would be long before things changed up for you.

Don't play with the rent money and build you bank roll back up to where you like it. If that takes some extra time, a few extra paychecks, (goo luuu on the job interview) be patient, and you'll be good to go.

I suggest you do the same and take your own advice and quit responding to posts directed to Hagar. Your like his momma at times it's funny. I can almost count on it.

It's an open forum, Pimp. Just like you stated.
Anybody can chime in and add thier comments or thoughts.

If it was a post / message for Hagar, then you should have PM'd or emailed him.

Doesn't matter if its Hagar or anyone else on this board, I would have made the same comment. I'm just one of the few who will actually call you on your shit if I think you are making an un-called for comment.

Finally someone who uses this BB as it should be thank you. Not with crumpets and tea but words and phrases with some backbone.

I do the same BK but usually get knocked for it.

I speak out when ever I want on what ever I want saying whatever I want. I post comments as I would in a conversation at anyone of OUR poker games.

This board is ours and should be used as such. Not use it as if you were in church or a 4th grade class room or as if you are a visitor.

So keep all that in mind when you are interrested in regulating anything I say or how I say it or when. Good luck on that pursuit.

Its good to see though that you finally pulled up your sleeves and posted something with a little bite.

Is your intention and goal to start shit with everyone?
It sure seems like it at times.

You are correct in that this is an open board. It's in the public. The BYOC group uses is as do many other players of the game... poker.

If you want to start shit and stir the bucket, by all menas, go for it!
There is no issue there. Don't be surprised when you only get 3 people that show up at your game because you've pissed everyone else off with side bar comments, jabs and what not.

Also understand that when you act like a jackass, that can project an image of the group as a whole for someone who may be lookingto get involved in the games that different people host.

But, that's just my $0.02

Pimp,

I don't think my posts are normally watered down or not genuine. I normally just post in a civil way and don;t see much need to always stir the pot up. I do agree with you that people should speak their mind here but not at the risk of alienation or just pushing buttons for no reason at all.

I laugh my ass off at many of your posts and I would not want you censored but at the same time I like to mix-it up with you or anyone else if I don't like what they are saying or if I feel they are treating someone unfairly.

None of that means that we still can't be friendly to one another. I think it is great to be able to disagree, call each other's shit, and still sit down with one another at a poker table or dinner table and have a good time together with no hard feelings. That's just how I feel.

LOL, when i read the replies i didnt expect to see this conversation. Anyways i never ever play with "real" bill money i.e. rent car ect. The bill money i was talking about was my casino college bill which i signed up for after i took my huge loss.

After i lost my job around 2 months ago, instead of looking for another b.s. restaurant job i started playing cards for my spending money. I live with my girl and she makes more then enough to cover our bills. We just use my card winnings for spending money. When i said i was on hard times it was a no poker money kind of hard times not a no money at all hard times.

Lol I love all this stirring up of the pot stuff, so to speak. There seems to be some people here who love to get on each others' backs for commenting on what appears to be a public forum. Hell, I'll be suprised the day I read ANY forum and find no negative comments on someone elses' post. That's really the whole point of a forum, to post, get feedback, and learn things.

On a side note, wow PK, you must have one hell of a girl that lets you live there rent free, and lets you play poker all day! LOL. jk... pretty cool, though. Just keep it in check. I know that once I start my MA program in the fall, my poker outings will be very minimal =( Sad, but we must prioritize in life, and poker falls a distant 3rd. behind 1). people that I care about, and 2). school.

But until August, I'm all about the poker! Now we just need to get a RENO trip going, or better yet, VEGAS BABY! (money baby, money!)

Good shit PK. Sorry to hi-jack your post but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Sounds like you have a sweet set-up at home. To be young, dumb, and full of XXX again. Damn that sounds good. Enjoy it before you get too tied down.

If anybody thinks that I get heated on any of these posts, giving or recieving, or am totally serious on my comments to the point of fists and fury then you need to do a cup check.

I've been alienated from one host at this point and it doesn't break my heart. I play poker with players who are looking for some action, not players looking to cuddle.

I will not alienate anyone in our club that plays poker with good poker edicate and who follows our standard house rules and I mean no one.

I'm there to play poker and can careless what you posted or think of me as a person. If I don't like you, what better way to take your money than invite you to my home game. :)

Anyway, that's my $0.02.

got the job

In my original post i had wrote that i got a call for a job interview. Thought i would do a follow up and post that i got the job at california fats in old sac. I start tommorrow and will be out of training on saturday. If you like chinese food come and sit in my section. The only downfall is i will be working 5-11 most nights so i will not be able to make most home games but you will find me doing the late night card room circuit.
