Well i spoke to a guy i know in Spain about work there this year and he seemed to think there would be work for me if i wanted. Just before i called him however I got a call from Aviva saying I had been approved to start there and they wanted me to start on the 15th February. I don't want the job at Aviva and a season in Spain sounds good to me but I think my mum wants me to "move on" and start getting back into the whole work environment and take the job. One of the reasons i want to go to Spain weirdly is actually to play more poker. I stay with my mum at the moment and Iknow she doesn't really approve of me playing so I only play a few hours a night. I want to try and talk to her about ROI etc and that if i just played for a few more hours i can earn the same amount (maybe..) that i could earn at the near enough minimum wage job in the Aviva call centre.
If i go to Spain I would really try and increase my bankroll to a point that i can use poker as a main source of income. Now i don't know if this is possible but i believe it is and i'll give my reasons.
So far I have played 179 SNG at 3euro entry and made £91 profit. Bear in mind the entry is in euro and the profit is in £. This has taken me about a week or playing around 2 hours a day so say 14 hours. Also i know that my sample size is not big enough however I can beat this game, not to sound too arrogant but i am a better player than all those i play against. Even if i don't move up limits and stay at 3euro games, if i play 35 hours a week then i would be profiting by £227 a week + Rakeback which is about what i'd get at aviva. I have played 3, 10 and 20 euro entry games already and they are not that much more difficult. So I think if i can get the hours in at 10euro games , i will be making more on a 10% ROI then i could do from work.
Or not... But all i know is that i want to try...
