There were no airfare or hotel room costs for me in LA since I live there. I wasted good starts in the NAPT and WPT, nearly bubbling each of them. I was overly aggressive which isn't necessary in big fields, since there will be enough weak spots dumping money.

I'm already down enough in tournaments this year that most players would be looking for backing or would have given up.

Fortunately, I have a day job: playing poker in side games.
