So Bankroll climbed up to……..
Which although I am Happy with, I was really Hoping to be at 3k by today. This week, I tried to practice only playing Solid players in a best of 3 games scenario. I think that should cut down on the variance of swings a bit for me. Especially since Im still working on climbing stakes. I played mostly the $24 and $36 Husngs this month.
I had such a good start to this month! Hopefully My July can swing into gear. I know I have some work lined up as well as a trip to NY around the corner.
On the bright side:
I got my FTP Refund Check in the mail last week! I didnt even get notified, I was depositing into my savings account and noticed the balance was much bigger than it should be. I went to look at the transaction history and BOOM, Deposit from the DOJ. Im not gonna lie, I never thought Id see a penny of that money. Its like this huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulder. So then I go on Cardrunners to see if anyone else is in this boat with me. And a Friend makes a comment that Juicy Stakes Poker has a new Owner and we can cashout now. When FTP died, I created an account on Cake poker, because at the time they had a good reputation and seemed like good software. But after a year, they emailed me and told me they had transferred my account to a site called “Juicy Stakes” which looked like a ghetto version of Cake poker. I ran $200 into a sizable Bankroll and tried to withdrawal. And they kept my money Pending for 9 months! Finally I emailed them very angrily for a month, and they put the money back into my account. I haven’t played on the site or checked my balance ever since.
Flash forward to today.
I requested a Juicy Stakes cash out (Max is 1k, and they charge $100 check cutting fee, 3 checks allowed per month) and 4 days later they email me saying
“Dear Valued Customer,
Please be advised that your cashout request has now been processed and the Check will arrive in 3 to 5 days at your mailing address on record with Juicy Stakes by courier. Never mention online poker when talking to your bank about this Check please. Kindly note that the Check will be sent from a Canadian Bank.
Should you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Juicy Stakes Support”
Obviously that seems super shady but seriously I never thought Id see this money either so what can I do.
Anywho the bank worked out great, and now starts the long process of doing 3 checks a month for a while.
WHAT A MONTH
The above pic is my stats for the month. The $36 level is a bit skewed and Break Even IMO, I played mostly Regs just so they might be discouraged from sitting me in future sessions. Hopefully that strat pays off. Also the $12 level isn’t anything dramatic, In previous Months Ive been running like God at those stakes so this must be the other side of the coin.
I have lots to do in July, but Ill do my best to try to record a couple vids for the health of the blogs sake, Hope everyone is doing well!
