Glory, a lifeline, and Dolphin rape
You all knew the kid back in highschool, the one who never really performed particularly well in anything, or was seen as nothing specially in any field, the guy who has a list of dumb quotes and random facts hes said in the past that just stick with him like a nickname? (did you know anually around 12-14 people are raped by dolphins?).
Well im that guy, and quiet frankly after poker theres really not much that is impressive or even remotley interesting about me. Just like patrick off spongebob i have
been obsessed with getting some sort of trophy. Some sort of thing i can put behind me and say WELL SO WHAT IF YOU HAVE A BRAND NEW HOUSE AND CAR, BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND A PhD IN ROCKET SCIENCE AND ANIMAL MASSAGE. I WAS 1ST IN 2013 IN THE $15-36 SUPER TURBO LIMIT ON SHARKSCOPE, TAKE A WALK BUDDY.
I came close to getting a trophy once, i think back to that moment frequently. It was the year 2000 and i was competing in a 2 length backstroke swimming race for the school. There were only 3 competitors and i had the bronze locked up. After the race started it all went well until the 2nd lap. After which i got disorientated and managed to swim across lanes and take out 1 of the other competitors after repetitivley beating him hin the fact with my attempted arm strokes. This taught me 2 things. Learn how to swim straight and beating opponents to the point of them exiting the pool before the race is over won't merit you an improvement in the standings. No it will give you a disqualification :(.
Which is why this year after tasting that momentary sweet sweet feeling of being #1 (since then firgli has taken another 1k lead i need to close up) i have set it as a big goal this year to get into that position, and fend off the invaders trying to take my throne. While Super nova elite is the years goal, which around only 300 people i heard made it in 2012, il be going for the double win, and possibly the trifecta (1st in any game $15-36). While at the same time working hard at the gym to get our woman back from the smooth-talking dolphins.
So Tiltbook will be the new home of my blog, and all my experiences for this year in and outside of my room (mostly inside, sunlight burns).
As for my results this year so far:
I has a $1.1k reprecharge comming up at my local casino il be jumping into as well as my regular grindings and any TCOOP omaha8s/horse/8games that run :D.
Something amazing happened this week alongside my results. I have gotten out of make up. Now for those of you who are backed you'l know if you put in poor results or bad volume you can be stuck in make up for months with no income source, and a mountain to climb out of resulting in many budget brand meals, general cheapness and mounting bills. Since i still live at home with the family i don't have to worry so much about the other stuff, however now that im out i can afford to eat once more at fancy dining places like Subway.
So il leave you with these, 1 to express my happyness, 1 to pep-talk those in downswings, and 1 thats my current grinding track :D
