i suppose the average wage in london is significantly higher then the rest of the uk to cover your insane cost of living..if your make your money off poker entirley then it seems like you would be a mug to live there. plenty other much nicer european cities to live in at a fraction of the cost.

The average wage in London is over 20,000 ($41,000) higher than many parts of the UK at more than 45,000 ($93,000) a year.

Come to sunny (!!!) Aberdeen..

I earned 50k a year in London and paid 1.5k a month in rent, rates,transport etc...

Move up here 120k a year and 800 a month in bills - go figure.

i find im the other way abouts from you lucky jimm.. i won $75 on an invite freeroll with a$1k prize pool on stan james. i played 5c 10c nlhe with the winnings. i ran that up to 300. then i got bored of micro stakes, it didnt hold my attention cos the money doesnt mean anything to me so i dont feel i have to play my best.if i had say $10k id play properly and use good br mangement, regognise tilt factors, when to quit sessions ect. i dont mind grinding as long as the money is reasonable. for me that is a meagre $1/$2 nlhe. under that and i find myslef getting disinterested in the games.so for instance when people lend me 50 dollars i invariably takes shots with it or play some donkaments and hope to score bigish ie: zero br management.

Definitely true about London not being the best place to live if you're a poker pro, on the other hand if you don't win it does at least mean you can make the money back a lot quicker from a regular job.

I wish Jimm the best of luck, his blog is one of the most entertaining one's I have read.

Thanks!

Yes, I'm getting paid 18/hour for a job which would pay 9/hour anywhere else in the country.

Also I've lived in London for the last eleven years (asides from a few periods busto and back at my parents) so this is where all my friends are. I would never live in another big UK city, there'd be no point. I'd love to live abroad, but I'd have even less of a support network for times I got myself in trouble like now!

No, chances are if your discovering a beautiful foriegn city with a stable income, you wouldn't feel the need to gamble on the internet with money you could spend experiencing the world and being independednt and responsible. just my 2c anyway.
