Welcome 2014!

Something odd happened in 2013; odd for a poker player anyways...It was eerily consistent with 2012. I made approximately the same amount of money, and played about the same amount of hours.

2012 Hours played: 1734
2013 Hours played: 1808

2012 Income from cash games: 137.5k
2013 Income from cash games: 153.5k

2012 tourney results: 33 played, -33k
2013 tourney results: 43 played, -64k (although in reality only about 40k of this is money I spent, the rest was selling action, still an annoying loss of roughly 30% of my income on MTTs)

I am now playing 10/20NL about half of the time, and hopefully will be playing it full time by the WSOP. Had a couple REALLY sick sessions last week that I may or may not blog about, but basically it was just me running well and other people going insane. Matched up well for me. Ended up being two sessions of 10/20, one 7.5 hours long and one 5 hours long; total profit: 41k. Yep, 2,050 big blinds in 12.5 hours of poker. Sick life.

I'm not sure how much time I'll have to play poker now with the new baby here and her mom going back to work in a week or two so I've been thinking about other avenues of income that I can do from home while still watching two kids. Online poker seems possible but not likely since it requires me paying too much attention. Things I've been considering:

-Day trading. Been dabbling a little bit in day-trading bitcoin with mixed success. Mostly just been buying on Margin and when it goes up selling and using the profits to buy real BTC, but don't completely know what I'm doing yet. I'd like to get into real day trading in the markets as I have a friend who does it and says there are some spots where retail traders can have an edge over institutions since they have certain restrictions and things they can't dabble in. So I'm going to get into that a bit I think.

-Sports betting. Been dabbling in this already by getting picks from people and what not. I was thinking about doing my own handicapping, but I think it's far easier to find people who give out free picks and just basically grind free info from local sharks who bet for a living since I live in Vegas. For instance, I knew someone who had a huge 200k bet on the 49ers to beat carolina so I tagged along a unit on that bet and it came through. Have a futures bet on the patriots to win the superbowl at 8 to 1 and I bet it again when it was 10 to 1, so I got a sweat there when they play the broncos this week.

Those two things seem like something I can do while watching young kids at home and potentially develop an edge. Beats grinding forums all day long.

2014 goals:

Pay off auto loans of ~16k

Put a dent in student loans of ~60k

Invest ~25-30k outside of any day-trading or sports betting ventures.

Play a few less tournaments during the WSOP (and win one)

1800 hours of cash games

Save up enough of a down payment to consider buying a rental property in Vegas in 2015 if the opportunity arises

As a recently married full time poker player (who will be doing the kids thing within a few years) it's great to see someone balancing work and family life so well. Keep up the good work and best of luck in 2014

you have life figured out man, good job rocking out -- inspirational

I have learned from poker that being at the table is not a grind, the grind is living and poker is how I pass the time

Good read. My wife's student loans. I had a free ride to a 4-year school and dropped out in my sophomore year to play poker.
