officially leaving korea

I'm done.
Booked my flight home for July 1st. no word on future plans, but I'll be chilling around toronto for a few months at least.

No real reason except that I need a change. Lots of my friends have since gone home, so it's only me, my g/f and few friends.

SOooooo I have someone coming to look at my place tommorow, so its all clean and I took some pics for my memory. I know a lot of people have asked and I've been really lazy... so here is my pad!

Note that I paid for nothing in my the place except the Xbox, and my computer setup(incl. chair). Everything else was given to me or salvaged, so obv its not very balla.

my setup

living room 1

living room2

bathroom - i was naked so i had sneak out of the pic


hallway - bedroom on right(no pic, too many naked girls inside)

tahts about it - month is almost over and im rollin in dolla bills fwiw

china earthquake relief fund

I'm sure you've all heard about the disaster in China by now.

Pokerstars has kindly agreed to match all donations made by thier players to the china earthquake relief fund.

You make make donations in two ways

Under the tournament/special tab, there is a $5, $20 and $100 option. It's not a tournament, but your money (matched by stars) will go to the red cross relief fund.

Alternatively, you can make a fund transfer to "Quake Relief" if you'd like to remain anonomous or give an amount greater than $100. These funds will also be matched.

If you don't have stars, you can visit www.redcross.org and make a donation online.

I encourage you all to come together and make an effort to help in this tragedy. Thanks.

lol 5kNL is ez

Well, I guess what has become tradition on my birthday has been a shot at higher stakes as a gift to myself. My b-day is tmrw (may10th) I'm going away tommorow to da islands mon, so I did it today.

I started playing regular pokers at $5/10 where I got in QQvsJJ pre and held up in a $2000 pot. It was sweet until I got coolered with KKvsAA in a $2000 pot about 5minutes later.

I continue to play a mix of 3/6-10/20NL and nothing is really happening. I bleed some money in small pots and I'm down about $600. Then I end up sticking my stack in with a pair and straight draw after a failed squueze attempt. Ended up puttin a nice beat on a donkey in a $1200 pot.

So I'm sititng at like -$50 or something and sick of pokers (I played like 6k hands today at $1/$2)

So obv I shortstack the biggest game running - $25/50NL.
lol, very first hand dealt:

anyways prop bet update:

costanza is treading water and looking for buyouts. the bet is as good as won. +$2000 for me, plus the $3000 I had in escrow that I've all but forgotten about.

april wrap up

Pretty ok month, despite having my lowest volume of play.

I dropped some tables and played some higher stakes. It went well initially but then I went on a nice downswing to end to the month.

Seems like a reccuring pattern actually - I make a sick amount in the first two weeks, and then breakeven for the rest of the month. Once the 1st rolls around again, I go back on a heater (like even today, may 1st, was my first winning day in over a week).

But whatever, I'm still making lotsa moneys.

Plan for this may:
Play more hands than i ever have
Make more $ than I ever have

should be easy enough. :)

With the supposed double vpp promo happening, I'll be playing like a mad man. I was considering starting some kind of may marathon and go for $31k in 31days of may. But with my birthday next week, and the soeul dj festival this weekend, it doesnt seem like a good idea. Maybe i'll start on may 11th or something and try to do $21k in 21day. I'll keep you updated.

As for my prop bet from last post. Costanza is doing surprising well, much better than I expected. That said, he's still slightly behind pace, and its not gonna get any easier for him.

After day 6, he's at $7,215.
