So in less that a month you won over $4,000. Not bad. Hang in there, kid.

BTW, I can't get the illustration to open.

Hey Craven, I would not post those winnings on a public forum. Wouldn't want a spy from the IRS checking on what you are doing! Laughing

It's his sig line....seems to have been cancelled, or just not showing.

When I mentioned the illustration, there was one of those boxes with a little red x in it. I tried to open it and couldn't. Now the box is gone.

And the sig line is back!

I had the box, too, earlier.

I'd post my poker winnings but I ate most of the M&Ms before I finished counting.

What happened on the 24th?

If those numbers are truthful that indicates you have never had a losing day, which I find quite remarkable because even the best player in the world has days where the cards run cold. I've seen people sit for hours without seeing a face card or anything remotely resembling a pair.

Lady Luck indeed must be with you, but you can not expect that to continue. One of these days the hammer is coming down.

Hard.

But, other than that, good luck with your chosen profession. You do indeed sound like you know what you're doing for the most part.

Gus, I think the ($$$) numbers on 2/25 and 2/26 reflect losses. Still, he shouldn't have taken the 24th off. Seems to have busted his Karma.



Have fun, craven (I am soooo jealous).
