    Im a prop-player at a poker room. I get paid hourly to play and help keep the table full. I gamble with my own money, get to keep my winnings, but i dont get to choose when i go in and out of a game. If a table gets shorthanded I fill the seat.

    you mean like monitor how you play? naw, if you got the $ to play when they need you, you can play as good or bad as you want. Most of our prop players are terrible. its a pretty common job at smaller poker rooms in Cali.

    Wow that is pretty crazy. I didn't realize that was a job. Even though you are getting an hourly pay, you probably make most of your money from winnings right? I can only imagine even if you were getting paid like 50 bucks an hour that you would probably lose or win more than that in an hour anyway.

    Much respect! You lasted longer than a lot of big-timers with bracelets.. I used to pay my bills off of partypoker/stars/etc. but i'd never have the heart to step up on that level..

    You might get a glimpse of me in the background of some hands involving MoneyMaker, Mario Ho, barry shulman. They might show a hand i had with Praz Bhansi especially if he keeps doing well. I dunno tho.
    Got recognized by three dealers in the tourney and a couple of ametuers in the field, three dudes from Ontario, some fools from Sacramento, some chick i played a LA Classic with at Commerce who became a fan i guess in between tourneys. The only pro who knew who i was and said whatup was Chino Rheem. Madsen busted before i could murk him on camera haha

    I had a few unlucky instances which really put me in a tough spot by day 3, but it was all still a good learning experience. If i dont lose on day 2 w/ AK vs AK, even if we just chop, Im still looking at an extra 37K in chips, meaning in theory i wouldve gone into day 3 w/ 50k+, and i wouldnt have had to just pick a hand to commit to. The variables are endless tho so i cant dwell on it much. Just gotta get better and comeback more fierce next year, and maybe I'll even run better
