No More Day Job!

It hasn't really sunk in yet, but I have just worked my last day at my job.

I am now a full time grinder and I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. I spent most of the day getting all the components for my new setup. I will be picking up my custom made computer (just for poker) as I love my MacBook Pro and will continue to use that for everyday use, but a Windows computer was necessary as most software companies do not create "Mac Friendly" programs and I'll pick up my desk from Ikea tomorrow.

So new custom cpu with Windows 7, two 24" Samsung Monitors, wireless keyboard & mouse... ability to crush the tables at will, priceless!

I will be purchasing TableNinja for Stars, FTP Shortcuts for Tilt, PokerTracker 3 and some mods from Tiltbusters for now. I am an "old school" online poker player manually uploading/closing my tables so it will be nice to have a program doing all this for me and allow me to putting 110% focus on the tables.

Going to be getting a massage tomorrow to get totally relaxed in the afternoon and will get grinding Saturday evening. I am going to focus strictly on the Stars $12-$36 180 mans, and the Tilt $75 45's & $52 90 mans, maybe a MTT here and there but 99% of my games in the next couple months with be MTT SNG's. Also, only playing one site at a time, not playing both together to maintain full focus.

I will put a photo up of my new setup once it is finished, I'll show you what I was working with, and then my new setup.

I am going to be one of the best MTT SNG players online so If you don't know who I am, you will soon, look out for Johnnyhilldo!
