alright...my resolve finally died, and today i deposited fifty bucks in an account on full tilt poker. i'm playing online poker for real money now.
and strangely enough...on my fifteen minute break, i made $15 at a $1-$2 hold 'em table (that Perry Friedman was sitting at, to boot...). that's more than an hour's wages.
maybe i should be a professional poker player.
