1. Well SO is pretty quiet these days!

    Just wanted to check in and have a bit of a life brag! I'm currently in Bolivia travelling through to Colombia for the next month or so. This is something I've witnessed my friends do for years but I've always been to broke ass to do it myself so funding myself through poker (after paying off overdue college fees) is just awesome. I pretty much have not a word of spanish, which is making this colourful! Ill try get some pics if anyone cares.

    Also a career brag; I started working for runitonce.com as an essential coach! Considering I joined ptp about 8 years ago and took $.25 stakes for 6 months, I never thought I'd get to this point in my career. Seeing as most of my friends have a blank expression when I tell them this, I thought here would be an appropriate place to post. Thanks again to all my backers and friends who helped me get here, especially Scaphism for coaching me for the last 16 months or so. Probably the joint most +EV decision I've made, alongside joining PTP all those years ago.

    Anyone else got life/poker brags? I know ptp hasn't had the most active players in a while but this is the only place I want to hear about other peoples/players success.

    ps. Investors: cake is not forgotten. I will absolutely give you a chance to recoup, or just buy it off you at something reasonable when I get home. Right now, grinding is not on my mind!!

    thanks nickk

    Boo on the mouse front, holy shit on the 2 seconds... I have a friend who would love to give you a race, I made the mistake of challenging him once. Didn't end well for me! When he was too broke to drink all night in a pub, he would challenge a macho guy to a necking competition with the loser buying the other 3 drinks. He has never lost afaik
