Stepping out and stepping up
    #4555508 - 08/19/05 03:21 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well folks I am on a new adventure................I am moving to Henderson Nevada right outside Las Vegas. I am going to become a full time poker player :shocked: I am leaving next week.

My wife is freaked and I just don't seem to care( not really ). Silly of me to make such a bold and brave move she thinks. In fact she has threatened me with a divorce. But I still am going with full intention of being OK. She will get over it I think. I told her to sell the house and follow me. Hopefully she will

So does this sound completely selfish?

Does the fact I have more cash than I need make it OK ?

Does the fact I have " Made it " allow me to do this ?

Does the fact I have been playing on-line poker very successfully for nearly 2 years makes this OK ? Shit,I have made a ton of cash on-line


Does this go against all I have ever learned and taught in my long history of management and business ownership ?

Am I just turning a new leaf for the sake of greed or constant need to be ALIVE make it OK ?


Or am I just wanting some stimulation to replace 20 years of drugs ?




Questions questions questions.........................




In any case I am off and really am tired of doing what is right( sound crazy?)I think I am reverting backwards to my old ways if in smalll ways that is.
I NEED TO LET THE FREAK OUT OF THE BAG :grin:


In any case I have about 4 days or so to talk about this with all of you. If you want to talk :crazy:

Exactly, you have to follow your heart and live your life the way you want too......it would be irresponsible to do otherwise.

LOL that almost sounds like what wife said but from her point of view.

I don't know if if playing poker full time can be considered a dream but funny thing ............. it kinda is. I am not really leaving her. I can travel back and forth almost at will. I think she is pissed I am going to buy a condo and not buy her a house somewhere in la la land in some great vacation paradise. I told her if she wants to sell the house then she can buy any house anywhere she wants. Of course with in our means.

Anyway,

Well if the first 2 posts in this thread says GO FOR IT, that is a good sign.


I have raised 4 kids. They all have moved on and are becoming good people so what is holding me from running er.............. not running but chasing down a fun way of life for a while. It has been 20 years of doing what is right and what is expected. I came from a street thug childhood and turned it into a tale of delight and success. So my wife is having a hard time understanding why I want to be so " foolish "..............


Anyway I love her but I think it is time to have FUN AND PLAY for awhile. Time to be all for myself for a few years or so. I really hope it does not cost me my best friend. But if she really loves me won't she let me dwell in my rewards for being a " other people first" kinda guy ? I mean I have been helping others for a very long time. I am tired of being " that guy "

I am spewing I know but............... I was born a stimulant freak. I don't really do drugs the way I have done them. In fact I have been a "closet druggie after all my work has been done" for many years.


I want to RUN PLAY FREAK ETC.................


She says I am going thru a Mid life crisis................. Er yeah right........does that happen to a 37 year old dude ?

I am not asking to have sex with 20 year old girls or start a heroin life........... LOL

I am very committed to my marriage. I just need to do this because quite frankly.............. I am a great poker player and I love it


P.S................ If I make it to a final table in a televised game I promise to wear a Tee-shirt that says..........


..UCKNUCKLE
LOVES THE SHROOMERY


LOL watch for me :crazy2:

i'm not much of a gambler but be careful, don't make risky bets...

be moderate.....

gambling by nature denotes losing more than winning, not that some people can't make it big, they must be on to something the rest of us aren't.... but

you could fuck up and lose everything quickly if you don't keep a cool head and set limits... just be careful with that.

I can't comment on moving and everything since I don't have any experience with having a wife or family to look after.

Congratulations on being in a position where you are able to do what you choose.  I'd say you are most certainly in the right for doing what your heart desires.

Have you played in the casinos?  What has your experience been?  Gonna get in some tournaments(WSOP, WPT, etc.)?

Just remember, that although you may currently have more cash than you need, it is very easy to lose it all in a relatively short period of time; especially when gambling.
I would suggest making sure(if you have not done so already) that you are able to maintain a decent life for yourself no matter what you lose.  Paid off residence or two, car, nest egg.

Other than that, I wish you all the best!  I aim to be doing the same thing within a year.  And don't forget to stop by occasionally to regale us with your tales of the players life.

:cheers:

Hey folks................I have been in Las Vegas a few weeks now.

Doing great at the poker tables............better than great actually.

My wife has decided to move here as she has figured out I am serious about staying. Besides she is seeing me make more cash playing poker than working. And I am a lot happier. You would not believe how nice it is to only worry about eating and sleeping and nothing more :lol:

I am still staying a Hotel Suite and will be moving into my new Condo sometime next month. I still have not decided on which one to buy.


So I will be back around again soon.............

Cool, you should look up Swami and play a little poker with him.

He claims to be one badass player. Maybe the battle of the Shroomery Poker Titans will entertain us little folk.  :thumbup: Send Report. :grin:

He's easy to spot: just look for the only guy wearing a turban and loincloth & sitting at the poker table in the lotus position. :grin:

Make that "semi-Lotus"...

since the accident and all!

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna
