Thinking I had found my new job, and being not the humblest person in the world, I shot an email to all my friends telling them of my big score online. After doing so, I headed back to the rooms to see what I could play. Only being familiar to the free rooms, I was unaware of the level of skill some players had in the real cash games. Needless to say, I earned my poker stripes and blew the whole $125 in less than an hour, after which I began to brainstorm how I could get more money to get back in the games, any game. I thought to myself - this is probably what a drug addict feels like. And to top it all off, people were starting to call after seeing my email to congratulate me and ask how much more money I had won. My response was “I’m still up.” It was not entirely a lie; I was still up – on my poker high that is.
