Week 3 Update (sort of):

Just over 47 hours of work so far this month. So I guess I've only worked 17 hours in two weeks. Oops.
30,558 hands for $2,381.35 ($51/hr)
Winrate is 1.72bb/100hands which is easily sustainable and is actually lower that my overall average.
I've made some small tweaks to my game, and am playing like a zen master. I lost a $400 pot yesterday where I got it in as 94% favourite. I didn't even flinch... I sort of just gave the computer a dirty look and kept on keeping on. holla.

EPT Update:

Getting there.... slowly. I really need to play a tonne in January if I even want a shot at this. Its really hard to get a lot of play in during the holidays. I'm trying though...
It's not like I'm gonna have a lot of time to play until the new year, because I have a friend coming to stay with me next week. So we'll be going out and partying a lot, etc etc. I'd love to get to 270/500k by the end of the year.

Hahaha, I'm gonna need to play like 100k hands in January....

Well, I'm back from the land of guns, girls and ganja... happy to say I enjoyed all 3.

No real poker updates, I'll check in with a better update soon.

Week 1 update:

Well, my first week as a pro, and well... it could've gone better. I've run really badly, but I'm still up, so that is encouraging.

I played 20,670 hands this week (i only played 26k all last month!) and I'm up $853.10 for ~$27/hr. It hasn't really been a grind at all -- some frustrating moments, but nothing I can't handle. I'm putting in 2 sessions a day, and spending the rest of the time hanging out with friends. So I've played 32hours this week, and will probably put up another seshion tonight.

EPT Update:

Originally I thought I only needed 400k total to get the package... but its actually 500k.
I've earned 44.5k in points this week, and I only need 272k more by feb.10th to go to france for the EPT. It's gonna be close... but I should be able to pull it out.
