I think your advice is pretty sound. I've got a trip to Vegas this year and have been looking at the cost of renting apartments. I am putting three years rent aside for an apartment, which should be sufficient and leave me with plenty to play with.
I have been playing a variety of poker games
. But most of my winnings have come from large texas
/omaha tournaments, which I have sattied into. Some of the satellites are really easy. I love re-buy tourney satellites (I never re-buy as a rule) because the prize is always much bigger than the buy-in.
Thank you for your advice. However, I am mainly interested in knowing how hard it will be for me to rent an apartment in another country (my only counter signatures being abroad) without a guaranteed source of income. I thought it would be best contacting a poker forum
for this because I think this occupational situation is quite unique. Keep posting.
