Day 99 of my 100 days, and things have not gone to plan. I have learned a lot from this challenge to myself. One of which poker is not an easy living. The money can be great but the time, effort, and stress to make that money is overwhelming at times. In the last month I have been on my first official rough patch and man is it difficult. So many factors make it hard to push through such as not wanting to play as much, pressure of making the same amount of money I have been making, and of course tilt. Way to much tilt. I know I will come out of it, partially because I believe in my decisions I have been making as well as my student who is improving every day and now making good money of his own. If he's winning off my teachings today I certinaly can get past this down swing and look forward to the positives of playing poker for a living once again. So here are the numbers and unless I win basically every tourny I enter tomorrow I will not reach my goal.

Where to begin... Well may sucked. I put in so many hours and just got killed in scheduled's. To unwind I took a trip with my brothers and lunchbox and his brother to Cedar Point. If you don't know what it is you clearly don't like amusement parks. Top Thrill Dragster enough said. Going on a Tuesday early in the season with 30% chance of thunderstorms equals VIP treatment. The biggest lines we saw were on the freeway. Also today I'm going to sign a lease to rent out a pretty sweet condo. 2 story, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath, oh yeah and did i mention it has a hot tub on the roof over looking the city. Pics up in July when i move in. It's only 5X more expensive then my current apartment. Due to amount I have to put up front, since poker isn't a the type of job title landlords like to see, I'll be sticking to mainly sngs this month.
