$5K BR ONE SHOT AT A POKER CAREER
I am 26 years old, currently in the military...Been playing poker for about 6 years. I will be exiting the military in jan 2012. I will not work or do anything but concentrate on a poker carrer until aug 2012 when i start school back up and start work. My goal is to play poker professional for income but if not thats fine too school and work come august. Finacially im set for not working until Aug 2012 and school everything is paid for already so im gtg. As far as poker I have a 5K bankroll for poker. I im not looking to grind up to 10 k or something like that i want to use the 5k to prove to myself i can make a living doing this or prove i was wrong and have a good time and head back to school. My thinking is when i return from overseas in Jan to play cash games and small tournaments in the local area (TN/KY border where I will be for a short time) and try to add to the 5K And take the 5K or whatever the bankroll is after some cash play to the circuit events in tunica. I would play in 6 ring events and the nightly 120's and cash games in between but mostly would rely on a good score in one of the tournaments. I understand the variance in MTT's and all that but remeber its a one time shot not a grind......that is my thinking and if i make some $$$ try some more circuit events in hopes of building a roll for the WSOP
in the summer........my thinking is to get more bang for my 5K playing the circuit if i jsut waited and went to wsop be bigger payday if i hit but could only play a few tournies. so i think the circuit is the best spot to go all in with my 5k roll and try to build it up over 5 or circuit locations until the WSOP 12 starts................
Well any advice on how to take a shot would be appreciated. Just FYI i had some success online +22k over the past 4 years online playing probaly 10 hours a week usually on sunday nothing special. i did play 1 WSOPC event 25 at tunica in februray before going overseas and we chopped 5 ways for 2,300. other than that just cash games and poekr clubs in the local area. i play NLH, PLO, PLO8 and Razz and HORSE.
