So I cashed out for 800 yesterday to get a laptop, I got a 15.4 " hp which is really nice. It's pretty fast and has more memory then I will ever need.
Poker has been going good I won about 1400 last week including two tourney wins.
title pretty much explains the situation... basically I should probably start paying taxes now that I am just playin poker for money. I really have not made to much playing poker compared to others but I had a few under the table jobs so I figured eventually this shit will catch up with me so I should try and get stuff caught up.
I found a old thread on lp where a pocketfives article was listed and I read I really should just get an accountant. I have not made that much so I don't know if its that neccesary if someone could help me out with how to go about claiming the gambling winnings. Pretty much if people could share how they go about keeping track of their wins and losses that would be appreciated.
In the pocket fives article it talks about it alittle bit but just wondering what others did.
Is just getting an accountant the best way to go about this or do any of you guys do the taxes yourselves?

Funny how things work out sometimes, I got sucked out in the other 6 or 7 sit and gos I played in. If that did'nt happen I got it in bad with kings or aces on draw heavy flops only to lose to sets that people called off half there stacks to hit. There was one tourney where I just played terrible and I deserved to lose made a stupid play got owned harcore.
Polish the luckbox when I got in this one though
I thought I had to do this got lucky any thoughts though?
He shoved over alot of raises with trash so I knew I had to be good
This was huge, I won the race and this set the tone rest of the way
I thought this was good just bad result
Luck box is just working well
And people say poker is hard
I thought this was good fairly standard though
Any comments on anything would be appreciated
I wrote a longer blog entry but for some reason I tried to hit post message and it said to log back in. I made a few edits so I think most of the stuff should be in now. I'm going to try and get this blog going so I can get to 200nl by the end of the year.
One last thing though is I need a laptop for school and I have a really nice desktop so I'm not gonna get a super nice laptop since I don't really like them. I just need it to take to class and get on the internet during class for some of our assignments.
Anyways if you could look at this link at let me know which ones you think are best of the ones all the way up the the black laptop that is 729. If someone could fine me a laptop that is around 600 to 750 that they think would be good for poker and school that would work as well. Thanks
