Shipppp itttttttt sonnnnnnnn

Got my biggest online tournament score in poker yet---> on sunday--->on full-tilt,

Wait for it wait for it wait for it

$ 7 5 , 0 0 0 . 0 0 0 0


that should pay for a year's tuition at B school and cover one essay's material too right????

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, as you can see OMG has been zapped with an even bigger OMG, would be difficult to concentrate on any stuff over the next few days... forgive thys pottiness for the moment.... though a good part of sunday late night, after the win, was spent at a certain posh gentleman's bar blowing $1 bills with friends ;-), that 75k could have gone way bit lighter by the time the night ended ;-)

but still

heyyyyyyyyyy.... great
I am envious about your "wow extra curricular" and not about 75k. Well, the worries of an applicant.

congrats, thats badass. ya know i've started to realize over time that there are more and more similarities between trading stocks and poker. hell, even investing and poker too. really amazes me sometimes.

look forward to following your journey

@ dg : ty ty

@ happybunny: me too, but i dont get a chance that often ;-)

@ marketfolly: well in a way there is a similarity, in the sense that over a long term the "variance" (losing when you are 8:2 fav say) in poker should even out and then like trading it becomes a game of making educated guesses based on past patterns and an incomplete information set. Thanks for dropping by.

yea definitely. also risk management in general: bet sizing, bankroll management, and general risk control for poker. then position sizing, portfolio allocation/risk models, and position sizing on the trading side of things.

lot of people i know in the markets are also big into poker (time permitting) just because its a lot of the same basic skillset/thought processes

@ marketfolly: agree with the bankroll management thingy, that is absolutely a must both for trading and poker, not so sure on position allocation though, that might not be true always, one of my best friends is a stellar poker player and now a major player in finance after his NYU degree, see the gaucho blog on the poker tabs
