Internet is the activity that I engage with far more than the others.

Sex is nice when you're getting it but having been on a dry spell I could probably cope without.

Only really drink on a Wednesday night regularly and then then holidays and a rare weekend.

Guess the internet and sex will have to go then.

Mistakes from Mcafee

https://simpleweb.co.uk/the-future-of-the-blockchain-interview-with-ethereum-co-founder-gavin-wood/

Medium length interview with an Ethereum cofounder, talks about some of the philosophical ideas around cryptocurrencies and their governance as well as the bubble and uses cases that aren't financial such as Land or Art registry.

Holy shit my car could make money for me by trading its own energy!

Mind blown!

I feel like I'm missing something. Maybe its just the exclamation marks.

"Couple that with things like batteries, which need to be charged but can also be discharged. Imagine an electric car parked in your driveway, then it becomes very interesting, because the car can also have a wallet and your car can then make money by trading energy; buying it when it’s at a low price and then selling the battery back when it’s high."

Thought this was an awesome concept.

Just don't lose Tongue

People say this you must buy a house asap from poker advice more as a personal piece of advice (espcially from people outside of gambling) because if you have £500,000 BR and put £250k in  house then you can't lose it and therefore even if you lose the other £250k you'll still be +250k from being a poker pro.

Obviously, thats not fiscally sound advice, but you can understand why people think this/say this innit.

I'm sure Alex you will be fine, taking a big chunk of your liquidity out of the BR is obviously not ideal but you're a smart guy and I'm sure despite having a depleted liquid roll you'll still be rolled comfortabley for your games, if you start of post-house purchase in a DS then maybe sell some action for a month and try protect the smaller liquid cushion you have left. LMK r.e action ofc Cheesy

You'll probably win some tournament, knowing know Wink

Yeh this is all a pre-moan, usually quite effective. Don't think I'm playing another tournament this year but cash game heater would be nice!

There's obviously way more non-financial reasons why we chose to buy.

It's just when bitcoin hit $3000 and I had a terrible few days on cash I was slightly sweating thinking oh god what have I done here Tongue

Would you think owning a house makes playing poker for a living more or less stressful?

Not that I own it just yet, but I'm basically counting that money as gone. So now my bankroll is massively reduced. Now I'm feeling a bit more pressure. The cushion is gone. A bad downswing would mean I have to drop down stakes, which would mean the house purchase was a bad error, in financial terms.

On the other hand, it's gotta feel nice to have far fewer outgoings...

Thanks guys!

Will report with photos when I get the chance, but suffice to say it was the perfect occasion and I couldn't be happier.

Thanks Tikay, Mark, Celtic and Ralph! Couldn't recover but making progress from 16 bricks to 3 min cashes!

Doing well on cash games which is paying for the tournament buy-ins, but not the nights out, yet!

This is without a doubt the best Vegas trip I've ever been on by the way! But maybe the last big one I do Sad Making the most of it, that's for sure Smiley

If you operate in the poker / gambling world, debts just come and go every single day.

You have a close network of people that you are happy to just keep tabs with because you work with them so frequently.

I've got running tabs with probably 30-40 people and some in 3 separate currencies. And probably dealt with 100 more beyond that with no problems. Very very few bad experiences.

I'm like arbboy in that I very rarely borrow myself. I always prepare well for trips abroad etc (where most of the lending happens when ppl are short of USD in Vegas for eg). But sometimes I get in a spot where a game is kicking off and I don't have liquid in that particular casino and a friend does, it's nice to call on a favour.

Or you're on a night out in Vegas and things escalate beyond what you imagined they would and a friend spots you for the next $200 craps syndicate...

The entire reason for posts like this (from me anyway) is to let people know someone might not be a good investment, so if they start asking people for staking (which seemed like a possibility in this case) or asking people to borrow money

Then lets just make a thread for every badly played hand in history.

** Breaking news ** A warning to the poker community.

A well known gambler from London, David Nicholson, aka lildave, aka Suuprilim, made an extremely loose peel preflop of a 4bet with J994r in a high stakes PLO cash game. And then called a flop bet on AK4. This is terrible play, and a warning to anyone considering staking him.

Update on my issue with un-named poker player

I was hoping for an apology, or at the very least I'd hope need change his ways since being outed, but actually he's just the same as ever. I think he's likely to do exactly the same again, any one gambles on reality TV with this guy and picks a useless shitty team and luckboxes a win is going to have to wait 25 days for the money.

These threads can save lives.

We mustn't forget how lucky we are to be born in an era where technology allows to be informed on matters such as these.

Born 100 years ago, and debts of many shillings would be paid and unpaid unbeknownst to society.

Glad this was posted, as it gives me a chance to share my own unsavoury dealings with a good standing member of the community.

Last year me and 3 relatively well known pro gamblers agreed a small wager on the Apprentice (TV show). Without going into detail, I picked a dreadful team but ran unbelievably golden, my bumbling team of idiots constantly swerved trouble whilst better candidates in better thought out teams fell and I ended up winning comfortably. I won about £1000,  £825 was won from the one person, prolly the best team too, you know how it goes.

So a week later I kindly message asking for the money even though I don't remotely deserve it I still won it at gambling so I should take it. I get some nonsense excuse about not wanting to send a bank transfer, followed by a vague message of intent to find some stars $ to send me. I wait another week, nothing. So I message again, and am met with some more nonsense about getting someone else to send the money. I know that in reality he just didn't want to pay me straight away because of what a huge luckbox I was in the bet.

About 10 days later a mutual friend of ours messages and says he's sent the money in full for the debt. A full month after the debt was due.

This is not intended to the slate the guy, just want to share the true facts of the matter and highlight to everyone that if you do business with this person the they might be left to wait for a time penalise you for your good fortune.
Debt currently stands at £0 but I was made to wait an unduly amount of time, and made to feel like I didn't deserve the money I won fair and square on the basis of how absolutely dreadful he ran with his far superior team.

Lol actually had to check the records, I knew you'd done your bollocks deep down but the story was so convincing!
