So Mrs. Fly is starting to hint that I should go back to work. To be honest, when I started playing poker, my minimum expectation was that I make 20K a month, but more like 40K a month "longer term." I would still make more going back to work, but as mentioned in previous posts, trading income is more volatile than poker income. And let's face it - I like hanging out at home. I still think I can reach my poker goals, but we'll have to reevaluate every few months.
I suppose it's cute to say "my husband is a professional poker player." But "my husband is a rakeback pro" just doesn't have the same ring to it. It was one thing when I played like a monkey and still made $20+K a month. I still think I can hit my goals, but because I've already been out of the job market for almost 3 years, I've been working a little harder to make sure poker is a viable. I think it is.
Finally booked my first winning session of the month, and feel I got my mojo back. Let's see how it goes.
More from the chronicles of aggro full ring nits. A whale opens UTG, villain calls, as do 2 other people, so I squeeze for value with JJ. Whale calls (of course), and villain backraises and shoves. I of course make the snap call, because what could he possibly have that he didn't want to raise the whale with to start. What's funny is the whale calls the all-in with QTo, villain shows up with 77, and of course a 7 comes on the river. Umm... okay. At least I won the side pot, so I only lost 65 big blinds.
