Had a huge row with Girlfriend over poker tonight!
this week I've put some serious hours in online I took a break tuesday and decided to log on to 888
, I havent played there in months I switched to pokerstars
and never looked back really due to sheer volume.
Tuesday night I was bored and I fancied a change from so tapped into 888 played some freeroll, and I finished 3/3000+ in the freeroll made $3.76 within 24 hours I've got $150 dollers in my account from sit n gos and mtts,
I tell her Im gonna invest the next few weeks in the evenings for a few hours, to get my bankroll over 1k while im off work till jan, then I can BR manage at higher stakes and pretty much make a few quid here and there (which I know I would of done at 888 before xmas is out. I have improved since summer but I didn't expect to run up a bankroll so easilly off $3.76
She issues me the ultimatum. If you wanna play that **** here every night you can leave I dont care how much money you think you can make.
get out tommorow.
Your obsessed with it
So obviously this means I cant play much poker at all and its not wise to do so, unless I want xmas in a B&B or on a sofa at my fathers.
This is what I did, put my entire bankroll into the 3 biggest mtts running and basically said If I cash 4 figures I wont play till after xmas, and If I dont I wont be able too.
2 hours I was up there ofcourse I am steaming now after arguing, So I was playing for 1st place and busted out after like 3 hours.
I know its bad but I didn't really have a choice I can live without the $150 lost but wanted that bankroll so badly,
So I could play all the best mtts as and when throughout the year and adventually the live satellites when it grows.
I feel I made the right choice because I now cant play poker on 888 and Im not likely to invest my own money, or spend the hours to rack up $10 again.
I have proved that the poker isn't more important than family.
But its just so frustrating the main reason apart from enjoyment I play the game is to make extra money, which ofcourse goes into the house and long term the key goal is to become good enough to change our lives to some extent,
Really makes me sad that women can get like this
