    There were a couple of incidents I had concerns about, but I'm not going to talk about them.

    It is more of a psychological and technical barrier that I need to overcome. My current bank roll is more than 200 k
    according to Colin jones I can play black chips and make hundreds of dollars an hour. However I don't think I can accept a loss of 30k in a night psychologically .

    On technical side, I evaluate myself everyday using BJA app, still not perfect in counting and deviations. So I don't think I am ready for the big bets in which any error potentially cost a lot.

    So I'm still a red chipper

    On the serious side, there are obviously many factors besides current earnings on whether to pursue full time play. Definitely not a one size fits all.

    Thanks for sharing your results. I wish more folks would share.

    I deliberately did not show the dollar amount. I will say while our hours played in 2019 are almost the same, and dollar wise our betting spread is similar there are some differences. I mostly play all, and I have my max bet out way before TC 11. If I made any $200 bets during the year they were few and far between. For my bottom line think more than double what you made.

    I started with flat bet of 5 or 10 table minimum on TC >=2. So it was a slow run in the beginning . Later I started $5-50 spread and just did 10-100 about 2-3 weeks

    Patience is key. I read your other post about logging 150 hours willing to earn $10 per hour. Not many could do this knowing they have a 200k Roll to fall back on.
    Keep it up.
