I look forward to seeing the progress, and as you said its a challenge in the new year to reach SNE so I think updates of VPP accumulation would be neat.
Good Luck with it.
I'll definitely be keeping a vpp tally here. The thing with $ is like I had a rl friend find on google my mtt results and I had an 86k score (although I had sold action, lost other tourneys in the summer, taxes, etc. but it's still a lot for someone still in college) and it was just kinda awkward. I make it a policy to never talk about money amounts with people who don't play poker, it just never ends well. So I'm leaning towards including it here since I don't see how non-poker friends would ever find this but yeah hopefully you understand. Poker players see money won as points and success, while non-poker players a lot of the time see it as the money so it's either "omgomg you lost thousands of dollars call gambler's anonymous" or "omgomg you won thousands of dollars can I have some?"

Either way gl!
It's actually a bit of both, I went for sne pre-BF I think 4 years ago? There was no way I should have tried it I was a breakeven 100/200nl reg with a terrible mental approach to the game. My mental game has grown leaps and bounds better since then and my poker skills have as well. So part of me I think wants to prove I can do it.
But for the most part it's the money. I'm still doing fine compared to most recent college graduates but I spent the last few years paying tuition and not winning a ton from poker. So giving myself a solid cushion is also a pretty big priority. I don't expect poker to be profitable for that much longer so I'd like to milk what I can from it and give myself as big a cushion as possible before moving on to whatever I do after.
