  1. Thanks KB! I'm extremely excited about the opportunity.
  2. I mean, say what you want to say. I will let the results do the talking. No one will work harder than me and that's a promise. I didn't just pick up poker one day. I have been a consistent winner since 2009. Sometimes life things get in the way from taking the leap, but the time is now. JUST WATCH!
  3. It may seem that way, I wanted to wait to leave until April because that is when my current lease is up. This is not playing poker because of circumstances. If I wanted to get another job int he tech industry it wouldn't be too hard. I want to live a little though.
  4. Hey Guys, The title says it all. Friday, I lost my job that I had for more than 4 years. I was planning on going full time with poker in April/May so this isn't as bad as it sounds. But I do want to keep this thread open so I can post my progress and hopefully motivate some of you who are looking to do the same thing. Read the full blog here: http://www.pocketfives.com/blogs/chrisp200/i-lost-my-job-i-m-not-even-mad-about-588363/ Lets do BIG things in 2017! Chris Perkins
  5. This past Friday, I decided to work from home as I occasionally do. I got a phone call from the office manager where I work, and he did not sound like he had good news. He had to give me the unfortunate news that I was being laid off from my job. A whole stream of emotions hit me. I was happy, scared, excited, and everything in between. For those who don’t know, I was planning on leaving my job in April to play poker full-time. So while this may be a blessing in disguise it still threw me off guard. Part of me feels like I failed. I was at this job for over 4 years, but did I not do
  6. I've used both. PT4 is easier and will have everything you need. Plus, if you don't have a badass computer, HEM will not cooperate.

    All of Carls points are on the mark. Someone playing 10% of hands = Nit Big Seperation between VPIP and PFR (I.E. VPIP 30/PFR8) = Fish (he plays his hands face up. When he limps, he has a bad/marginal hand. When he raises, he's got the good.

    If you haven't already, you want to set your HUD up so you see a person VPIP and PFR from every position. As you mentioned, UTG is going to be very different than the button that's why this is extremely important. To get a basic idea of what someone is opening with a button VPIP/PFR of 30, just get a range calculator and put 30% in. A little trick: Some people think stealing UTG is profitable - IT IS NOT! But if you see someone with a UTG PFR of around 10% or more - This is probably a good guy to 3bet light. It will just be too hard for him to defend. Obviously sample size is going t
  9. Best Blog on the Internet. You should VLOG too.
  10. How much did you lose? I think it goes without saying that this guy has no clue about variance in poker and wants to blame others for his losing. You should focus your energy on getting better instead of spitting out nonsense. It doesn't help that you have only been a member of pocket 5s since, well, a few months ago.
  11. I can understand why you think that, but do you think a company as big as theres really cares if the 7.5K overlays a couple of times?
  12. The cancelation process is in there terms of service. If late reg is over, there will be an ICM chop among the players remain. If late reg is not over, everyone will receive their buyins back. ACR is catering to the American base in a gray area when it comes to legality. They will not be in the picture long term (and they know that) so there is no need for them to spend a ton of money on software development. They need to do the best they can right now, because there is not telling when they will have to shut down shop. Having said that, I've played there since 2012 and the software has co
  13. First off, this isn't a blog post. Second: The cancelation process is in there terms of service. If late reg is over, there will be an ICM chop among the players remain.

  14. How many 5K have you played? Do you realize that the 5K at the PCA is not soft?
  15. I know we still have one more month until 2017, but where did 2016 go? What a year it was! This was by far the most exciting year for me as far as poker goes. I started off 2016 with a $14,000 upswing and started playing more live poker with immediate success. I was able to travel to some beautiful places this year, thanks to Intertops Poker and their small/soft live satellites. Winning packages on Intertops to both Seefeld Austria and St. Martin, I can look back and call this year a success. I met so many new great people in the poker world and have grown my existing relationships
  16. Sick month! With your high percentage of cashing, I have to ask if you re-enter tournaments? If so, do you have a limit for re-entries per tournament?
  17. There's only one crypto currency worth owning and that's Juggalo Coin - http://www.avclub.com/article/insane-clown-posse-fans-now-have-their-own-digital-203439 Join the Insane Coin Posse!
  18. I had trouble balancing a Bachelors Degree and poker, I can't even imagine trying to do a Masters along side poker. That could just be a flaw in me though. Good Luck with poker and school.
  19. I can't believe I let myself fizzle out of blogging. There is too much to cover about the last few months to post in one blog but I will do my best to sum it up. Online Poker - Has been very good to us. We have had a lot of four figure scores and a handful of chances at five figure scores. Some of my recent deep runs have been converted to highlight videos on my YouTube channel. Live Poker - I haven't played live poker since the WSOP. I was only out there for a week, but it was a good time and a nice break from the online grind. This coming year, I hope to go out for the whole mont
  20. I can't believe there are still players who think this way in 2016.
