    Interesting Video. I guess most players never thought seriously about several items. They were just grinding. Most of them get broke sooner or later and it´s not just bad luck involved.

    I dug up something from the well on 2+2, just curios did you changed your mind or not?
    If you knew that games would remain almost the same for the next 20 years, would you consider making poker your main job?
    "No.Poker doesn't stimulate me much intellectually. Also the zero sum nature of the game depresses me a bit. I view poker as more of a bridge to better things."
    "No I only plan on playing a couple more years until I can save up to buy a house and put a ton away for savings and kid's college funds before I get a degree in nursing or my PHD in history and become an academic, not sure yet. It will be hard to give up the lifestyle though, I get to do whatever I want when I want and it pays well."

    Thanks, faarcyde - an insightful video. Could you say more about the kinds of ROIs that were attainable four or five years ago playing SNGs, as compared with before and after Black Friday?
  • faarcyde


    @Milan: Yes, I would say my outlook has changed a bit. I've adjusted more and enjoy the lifestyle so much I don't know if I could go back to working for someone else. I am doing everything I can now to build up my investments with rental properties, stock investing, etc and plan on opening my own business in the next couple years.

    @Fembot26: Four or five years ago? 7-8 percent at high stakes for single tables. Now 3-4 is pretty much the cap.

    Wow, very very nice video. Agree what you said about excercise/depression relation. And P90X is awsome (gone 10kg down in 3 months, including proper meals), anti deppresion solution. These days coss poker takes so much time, i do only Yoga. And have a feeling if you gona say that you read Kiyosaki also, that somebody cloned me in America. So ye im intrested to conntact you about investing. Gona send you invitation in community tab in PS.

    Great vid mate. Basically doing everything you talked about, but it's still a great reminder :) Fully agree with the excersize/socializing part regarding depressions.

    Would be very nice to see more of this, thanks!
