I know! I know! i said I was going to keep up with this blog, but between traveling so much, and just being lazy with the blog has prevented me from posting as frequent as I should. Anyways, This is going to probably be a really long post about everything going on in my life right now.
So, first lets start with how I have been doing in tournaments. I have been playing a very low volume of tournaments since my big score, but since my big UBOC win on December 16th 2007, I have the following final tables:
3rd in the UB bounty for $2464
4th in Sunday 2nd chance for $14,425
7th in a $109 for $1770
3rd in a $55 1 rebuy 1 addon for $1161
1st in a $50r for $15,721
1st in the Nightly $100k guarantee for $27,818
5th in $55 for $2843
6th in the sunday $215 heads up matches for $1792
5th in $33r 6max for $1429
8th in saturday $320 for $3385
Full Tilt Poker:
2nd in $75 for $6502
8th in the 100k guarantee for $2400
1st for a $12k live package
1st for a $12k live package
So, even though I havent been putting in full time hours I have still had alot of success since my UBOC win. After I completed my backing deal with The-Toilet I told my self I was going to take a much needed break from playing MTT's online full time, because it is much more profitable for me to focus on making money in the real world. Dont get me wrong there is great money to be made playing online poker, but its just capped to a certain point whereas my time spent in developing new websites/businesses is far more profitable and uncapped income. If you think about it even live poker is capped. Even if your incredible at poker and run incredible your not going to make anymore than 10-50 mill in a lifetime and to make that much your saying your the absolute top tier of all poker players in the world. My point is not to show that I am greedy, but just that I realize my potential is FAR greater outside of playing poker, but for now I still want to pursue both until my growth as an entrepreneur prevents me from being able to play under the same circumstances.
In between grinding online tourneys over the last month I decided to put school on pause and took the time to travel with some friends from my hometown that I haven't kept the closest touch with over the last few years because I know to pursue what I want is just impossible living in maryland, and I wanted them to understand what I have been doing the last few years while i was away at school before I move across country.
So, Last friday I moved out to Los Angeles (Hollywood hills) with two friends from home. The first project I am working on out here is a new website within the music industry that has never been done or even tried. I want to talk about it more than anything, but until we reach the right time to go public it is in my best interest to keep it to my self. My friend Larry came up with the idea and it has HUGE potential, but I dont want to get into talking about this project so much just yet. Just keep checking back on this blog and I will do my best to keep everybody updated on whats going on, but I wanted to show how excited I am about starting another new business.
Over the last week or so we have just been living out of a hotel because it was ALOT harder to lease a house than I thought. There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to spend your money simply because your not old enough. I cant even count how many times I have been turned away just because of my age which nobody says because its illegal to discriminate because of age, but its fairly blatant what they are doing every time I go look at a new house. But, anyways I finally found a real estate agent that isn't super old school and found me a house in Hollywood Hills, California. I will be signing the lease and moving in on Monday morning, so im really excited about moving into my first house.
Thats all I have for now I hope you like it and don't be afraid to post comments which will also help motivate me to keep this blog updated :)
