    So yeah, as things look like at the moment I'll be a poker dealer at the Ostende Casino (coast of Belgium). My 2-week introduction course will start on Tuesday. ~ €1500 a month + clothing compensation + jackpot winnings twice a year (which will start at €1500 per year but will rise in the near future with the addition of poker and a bad beat jackpot) + all tips received.

    + I'll be able to make my hobby my job
    + I'll be playing a lot of poker during this course
    + Good money, apparantly
    + Room for career growth within the casino

    - The introduction course comes at quite a bad moment as I just asked for extra days to work at my temporary job, so some re-scheduling and stuff has to happen
    - From my home city to Knokke (where the intros will take place) and Ostende by train will cost me many babymonies
    - Working hours will be from 8PM - 3AM. Will take time to get used to...

    Tuesday will be D-Day for deciding on my future. On the basis of all the questions I have I'll decide to go on or not with my dream job.

    Wish me luck.

    I hope you're better than some of the dealers from the last casino I went go... we had to tell them what to do half the time :( but dealing would be hell for me, I just wouldn't be able to sit there for hours at a time without actually playing

    Yo, rony. What method did you use in transferring loot into your PokerStars acct, bro? I haven't done any gambling of any kind online ever since Neteller caved into the feds, and I was considering putting a hundy into my acct just for practice and ****.

    December was a terrible month. Bankroll crumbled.

    Started playing some 0.02/0.04$ cash game on PKR now... it's donkey time in there, had to adjust the strategy somewhat. I recommend it!

    For example: KK. Preflop raise to $0.16, had two callers. Flop came Q58. First to act overbet all in for $3.50. Called by AQ of course. But you'd get called by most Qx there.

    Those pkr points do rack quickly though even in micro! Been able to give myself some style.

    Been playing for a while, got to a decent level. Still doing play money since i dont have a creditcard yet, but i intend on getting some 20 bucks to play micro limits in the close future, or try my luck at free rolls. I'm raping the 10/20 NL Hold'em games any place i play (pokerstars, everest, pacific poker, ijji.com rounders poker), so i think i have some potential.

    Read Phil Hellmuth's book on poker, interesting stuff even tho some tips are pretty dangerous to follow. Now i'm into Caro's book of poker tells, just started this week so i cant have a say on it.

    @Jaboldinho - bold move calling 5BB's with 6-7 suited lol. At least you turned out to be lucky hehe.

    hmm at first I just used a credit card, but then the company I'm with cut all ties with online poker sites and the like. then I used UseMyBank or whatever it's called, and then I kept getting emails about it not being available in Canada anymore, but didn't look into it because I wasn't planning on doing anymore depositing. not sure what's available now, so good luck to you bro :(

    WOOOF, WOOOF......SEXAY! Yeah, bro. Those ******* penny tables are virtually owned by rabid noobs who come in with whatever is dealt to 'em and don't ever lay a hand down no matter what....it's revolting, really.




    let's hook up on PokerStars, bro, and I'll make you think twice about playing with real money.

    PopeYoss be the handle....




    yeah, that's the thing, bro. It's become a massive headache ever since Neteller pulled out. It's tedious and bothersome to deposit money and 10x worse to try to attempt to cash out, you know? Back when Neteller was around, the whole process, be it putting cash in, or retrieving it, was painless and instantaneous, man. I could wire money back and forth from one merchant to another in a matter of minutes, sometimes seconds......*sigh*

    I was playing a 0.03$/0.06$ table before leaving to practice and got from 1.20$ to like 5$ in ten hands.

    In one hand I was in the big blind with 2h3h and some1 doubled the big blind. Ever1 had folded in front of me and I was the last to act there, so I decided to pay the 0.06$ to see a flop. In this point I had 2.50$ in my stack.

    THE FLOP:
    As5c4s

    So, I flopped a straight, let me check this one, so he can make a continuous bet.

    He bets 0.12$ and I just smooth call.

    THE TURN:
    Ac

    I think he might have the trips, or a big pair, and there are two flush draws so I decide to check to get him bet at me. He bets 0.30$ and as I think he has a hand where he can catch me with one card, I decide to make him pay for it and move in for the rest of my >2$. He calls, probably thinking I'm bluffing and shows a pair of queens.

    THE RIVER:
    5s

    No help to him, I win. :)

    Bring it on Yoss biAtch. You'll find me often on 100/200 no limit play money tables. Yep, playing high stakes poker now. Decided to give it a shot with the 9K i had on my bankroll (i play on PStars for 3 days or something), went with everything to one of those tables and in one hour i went up to 65K.

    Now i'm at the 80s or something.
