|My bad, y'all...|
At the end of June, the Pro announced he was leaving the country for a job, leaving me with two weeks to find an apartment in Las Vegas with no car, bad credit, and zero liferoll - awesome. At that point I had just grinded myself up to a decent little bankroll for my low stakes considering I came to Vegas as a last-minute, post-Black Friday decision without a car, decent credit, or a liferoll. Instead of being able to concentrate on growing my game, I basically had to grind for my life over a four week period in which I did make enough to eventually rent a car and secure an apartment (like a used car dealer, Vegas is thirsty for renters: good credit, bad credit, no credit - we can help you!), but had to decimate my bankroll in the process. Ah, there's nothing like learning to sink or swim when you're pushed into the pool; survival instincts took over and I'm just glad I came to Vegas with my Big Boy Trunks. I'm not using all of this as an excuse for not writing; I'm just explaining why I have not been writing.

We have all heard the stories - no, the legends of pros like John Juanda, Shaun Deeb, Tom Dwan, those mythical figures who have deposited once and never had to deposit again.

I know, I know:
