Re: Zankas poker-journal

A couple of days since I left work. Have been playing a decent amount of poker and it feels very good. Have been focused, relaxed and have executed very well. I also have been taking regular naps during the day, long walks with the dog, and hung out with the kids a fair bit. Overall it feels amazing...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

My 5yo had the great timing of catching a cough this friday so we have spent the whole week at home. This have given me a looot of time to think and process the big changes that are happening. One thing that is very clear to me is that while you are in a situation that is very bad it is hard to see ...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

@2b1s Thanks so much for that post! Tons to read trough, perfect for keeping me occupied these days.. There seems to be different views on the 4% rule for sure, and maybe it is not a worst case scenario in a "normal" sense hehe. Seems like a lot depends on what happens during the first 10y...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

Thanks @ertyu! OK, so I ended the relationship yesterday. It sucks but was inevitable. Moving on. A very nice thing is that a few (newish)friends are stepping up and being very supportive and are making sure Im doing ok. For a long time I havent had these kinds friendships and it was something I did...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

Started working with the above mentioned guy and it has been great so far. It is a little more hands-on approach where I look at all aspects of my life rather than just sitting and talking about the past. I wont go into it too much detail at this moment tho. Other than that I am still working hard t...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

Ok so I found someone to start working with, it is a little unconventional but my instincts are telling me this guy can help me out a lot. I understand the value of "real" therapy and will def go to that if I do not get deep enough with this first option. So wish me luck, and thank you @er...

Re: 3 yrs to FI: ertyu's journal

Maybe a solution with the pigeons: The city next to mine had these beautiful owls nesting in a very nice spot where people could watch them. It was a pretty rare thing so it got some attraction in the national news etc. The politicians got excited and wanted to honor the owls so they got some artist...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

I havent updated in a while since I have been very busy with life and preparing for some changes. The decision to quit my job (in May) and pursue poker is a bit scary but it is very clear that this was a good move on my part. It will challenge me in a lot of ways but it will improve my quality of li...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

@Dave Thanks! I really appreciate you chiming in! Since there are some former players and others that are a bit interested in poker, Ill try to share a little bit more about the life of a pokerplayer. Poker is a game of some luck and som skill, but it is hard to really grasp what that means in terms...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

Ok time for an update. Leaving work in 3months for pursuing poker for a while. This feels a bit surreal and I am very excited to get going. I have been working a bit to hard since September to make this happen so I am a little bit burned out right now tbh, but my hourly keeps climbing now sitting on...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

@frihet Thanks for the reply! :) Thats great, then you know a little bit of what I do then, not many can relate:) Yeah it was a different game 10+years ago. It is as it is in most sports I guess, with more statistics available it is much easier to study parts of the game to improve a lot. Those who ...

Re: Zankas poker-journal

@ertyu Yeah pretty spot on. I am leaning more and more into just going for poker full time and potentially going to school in 1-3y. I have been going over my budget and doing some rough estimates of what my poker income would be. I have to take into concideration that I need to pay for sickdays and ...
