Razzaments and Other Stupidness

Yesterday when I got home from work (aka Hell) I had a ridiculous urge to play poker.  Since it was payday from many of the sites, I did one thing that no affiliate should ever do, started to gamble with my commissions.  I started off playing some 8/16 Razz for around 5 hours.  It was a lot of ups and downs, but when I finished, my bankroll had dropped from around $450 to about $350.  I decided enough was enough, after all it was Friday night, and called up my friend to go out.

Sure enough, about 20 minutes later I was back at Full Tilt, this time in the 8/16 Limit poker.  I donked off the rest of the money in about 30 minutes (I got sucked out pretty bad on the river more than twice), and was now without a bankroll (or any money to pay some people that I owe for content writing) and furthermore, the money that I had worked hard all month to get.

I created this post in hopes that someone would learn from my stupidity and not gamble their hard earned affiliate income away.

    Hey Graham,

    I just noticed your blog, and was browsing the articles until I noticed something really recognizable: Work aka Hell!

    When you start to become more successful at affiliating it’s just going to be a matter of time before your regular job becomes hell. If you’re income starts growing, then you’ll surely be thinking of making the switch to become a full time affiliate at some point, but until you’ll reach that point… everyday at work (in my case 9:00-17:30) is going to be a true torture.

    Anyway, about playing poker… I personally gave up on that about two and a half month ago after suffering a couple of major suck outs which costed me a couple of K’s. I still love the game, but definitely prefer the money making as an affiliate 🙂 So, now a days it’s just home games and live tourneys, and… honestly… the time with my son and girlfriend is so much more precious too.

    Peace

    Hey Giorgio, thanks for stopping by! I am definitely getting closer to that day where I may just have to make the jump. Ideally I would like to be a little more diversified first, but I may just have to drop the safety net and give it a shot!

    Talk to you later!
