Maybe I'll try semi-pro for awhile

I have to appreciate the fact that even though I do really believe I'm a microstakes balla, bad things can happen beyond my control and I could wind up stuck. Besides, my BR is only $1500! I think I can put in 20 hours a week with the work that I have. Sounds kinda crazy though. I'd like to in the months ahead drop one of my evening cleaning contracts which is the one that keeps me working until 3:00am. I'm there 4 nights a week and it's $1000 per month. If I dropped it, I'd only have to small offices to look after in the evening and would never have to work past 11pm. The other 1/3 of my $3k monthly income comes from a few smaller weekly jobs I do during the day. This would free up a lot of my time as I could go to bed at a normal time each night and wake up on a regular schedule. It'd give me more time for poker and studying poker as well as other things. Seems like this could be +EV. I guess the one plus about my situation is being self employed I can reduce my hours working and ease myself into playing pro gradually.
No talented regs at absolute!

I dont mean to sound cocky or anything but seriously I cant really find anybody decent on this site. I used to play on stars and there were plenty of good players it seemed. When I first got on Absolute i didnt like the software too much though it's better than a lot of other sites. It has a fairly small pool of regs at $25NL and $50NL. Most of them multi-table so I get a fair bit of hands in with all of them. Im not complaining though. I'm lovin my winrate there and my rake back so ship it, holla!
My debut at LP

Hey hows it going all. I've lurked around here from time to time in the past so finally decided to create an account. I used to play SC but I was chobo as hell. If anybody ever remembers [GiTM]-Soup or bluesoup from back in the nilla days then holla!
I've been playin poker for over a year now. Started out with a $50 BR on stars playin teh gay limit. Did that for a few months and then took my still $50 BR to NL and slowly started makin the monies. I'm grinding $50NL right now and doing pretty well running around 12bb/100 while 6-8tabling. I feel that I'd be playing higher stakes by now except that I'm a cashout whore. I've cashed out close to $10k since I started. I used to play on stars .02/.05 and cash out like $150 a week there.
I'm a HUD bot and admit I'd be lost without it. Its not that I cant pay attention and make notes and what not, but its so much easier to go with the stats while 8 tabling.
I'm making more money per hour right now than I am at my job, but I cant make the move. I dont have the balls. I'm self employed and I need that money I make every month so I'm going to keep grinding my job and playin poker when I can. But if I can grind $50NL successfully without problems, and move up to $100NL and beat that over a decent sample then I'm pretty sure I'll just go pro, since I know I'll be able to move back down to $50NL and still make a good living if shit goes bad at $100NL.
All in all I'm looking to improve my game and have some fun takin donks monies.
