  9. Is anyone currently having problems w BCP? Last night i entered two tournaments and never was in them and it took them an hour to replace my money. Also this morning they said they were working on a maintanence problem for 4 hours eastern time. When i went to log in i had a message pop up saying that I needed to exit the program for an updated version or to redownload the site. This is still happening. Anyone else having issues?

  11. I started playing poker for a living around 2009-2010. I always knew how to play ABC poker but never knew what a 3-4 bet was until I was taught better. I was taught the ins and outs of poker. I took every peice of advice I could gather in and turned and tweaked my game that benefited my runs etc. I never thought poker would be a part of my life, but it has. It's sad I live for the game, but it's always been a passion of mine. I went from shit jobs making maybe 1k a month to depsiting 330 on full tilt poker. Made 1,500 first night, took 1,500 and turned into 10k in a week. Quit my job very next day after shipping a nice 30 r for 4-5k. Played full time and had racked up over 50k in wins. Before all this, before poker I was coming off a hard time in my life already considering the friends I had at the time were not the best people to be hanging out with. Went from doing hardcore drugs and doing jail time countless times before I really learned my lesson after going to jail for 3 months for Burglary of Vechiles. I haven't done drugs or committed a crime since 05. I feel content with my life changing for where it is now. I learned that you do have a choice in life no matter what anyone says or what life wants to throw at you. I never once in my life thought I'd ever be given the opporunity to grind poker full time and make the money I did. I have a passion of poker I cannot explain, but life took it's turn on me few months prior to black friday and I went completly broke. Backers at the time took me to Vegas for the 2010 WSOP grind. Did okay, made a few runs, but I knew if I didn't come up over the summer then I would need to get a job. Didn't go go as planned and ended up getting a job. I worked as a call center agent for 18 months. I recenntly was let go, actually the day after x-mass. While I was working this job, I had rediclious runs online/live as well. Was one hand in the red river main event in OKC from changing my life once again, was 21 ppl left and lost with KK to AQ os for 1 mil chips. First was 651k. There has been so many runs I've been close to winning over 6 figure scores, it is very frustrating but I know eventually my time will come because giving up isn't an option. Currently I am living in my apartment with my last month here because I am completly broke, also am not running as good as I wish I could be online. Although 500-1k scores are not bad I am in MU with my current backer and scores like that don't cut it down to make me profit. Waiting out for a few opportunites to arise to possible grind down in Mexcio. Few factors that need to be compromised and I know it will take time until that option is available. So currently just grinding what I can with what I got, will be seilling most of my belongings and be moving to Albama with my parents at the end of this month or mid March, possibly find a part time job, unless a oppournity comes up. It sucks to go from always having a 50-80k bankroll to going bust, not once but several times. So what I am trying to say is if you are out there having a rough time with poker, or life in general...things do better no matter what as long as you have the right mind set and the strive to continue to work hard and never give up. My poker names, also my motto in life has been Never Lose Focus. It has always stuck with me even with my times have been great and also when they've been like what I am going thru. Life has taken me down crazy path's, but I know in the end myself and you if you are having a difficult time just take a breathe because everyday is a new day and anything can happen. We all make mistakes in life and we all have hard times but hopefully this inspires anyone out there because honestly...I am broke, hardly have any money in my account, don't get to do what I want to do, don't have the luxury to even go out and see a movie with my friends or have a drink or two, but I am alive and I am full of potential and so are you. Never Lose Focus guys... Thanks for taking the time to read this blog. -Austin-
  12. Just logged back in and it worked...
  13. pos. cl in like 4 of the 9 i am playing.
  14. Hahaha. Yeah, guess I could of worded it better. Lol.
  15. Yeah. I was typing too fast. Lol. I edited it. My bad!!!
  16. Not sure if this has been posted yet or not. But apprarently Daniel Cates is giving away a 10k Main Event Seat from what I heard over a good deed. I ended up posting this message on my facebook yesterday not knowing about this because I've been working full time and don't get to read much articles as I used to ,but my friend Levi had told me about it after I had posted about it and I thought if anyone knows how to reach Daniel Cates to just pass this message along regardless of a Main Event seat or not to show him good deeds do exist. This is what I had posted yesterday about 12 hours ago. Once agian, main event seat isnt important to me, but if you do know Daniel Cates, please pass the message on. So earlier today I was at the gas station, as I'm walking in a homeless guy asks for change. I say I don't have any change but come inside, i'll put it on my credit card. I tell the guy grab whatever you'd like, beer, soda, whatever its on me. He grabs a packaged fruit and a soda. Then as I'm about to buy it for him, I saw him eyeing the hot dogs, I go go ahead man, grab one, then I say I hope you like bananna's too and I put 2 on the counter. The guy was very blessed and I'm glad to have helped a complete stranger struggeling in this world regardless what may have caused him to be homeless. He had told me after we had walked out of the store that it has been 2-3 days since he had eaten a full meal. God bless him.
  17. Favorite Online Poker Memory: Hadn't slept all night/day, didnt want to stop playing til i shipped something. Played the early 10 dollar rush rebuy and finished first for a little under 10k, took a break, went half with kevmode in the fri night fight and a few other Mtt's. I fell asleep with 212 players left in the Fri Night Fight with top 10 in chips and woke up with 80 left and still managed taking 2nd for 17,700 in the same day. Plus had about 2.7k on my account to start the day with. Not too mention the UBOC I shipped months back early in my career. Least Favorite Online Poker memory: Failing with a digusting CL at the sunday brawl Ft with 7 ppl left, calling down with 88 like a fish and finishing 7th. All time favorite MTT: Any 6 max or rebuy's. Best things you did with your poker money: Bought new clothes, traveled. Worst things you did with your poker money: Strip clubs, degening at casino's, and strip clubs. Favorite everyday feeling you might get from poker: Waking up knowing you could potentially ship something sick/having the freedom to play when you wanted. Least favorite everyday feeling you might get from poker: Losing to runner runner/bad beats real deep. Never wanna see at your tables again: Bruce Buffer.
  18. Its not about that cashed, its the fact that I got deep in it with no rebuy nor an add on.
  19. Yeah. 1k in full tilt points.
  20. Entered the 1k in ftp ohama shootout satty earlier today and shipped it. Used the satty ticket for the 322 rebuy event tonight instead. Didn't rebuy nor add on and took 50th for about 3k. :)
