I wanted to brag about my new car but there is no brag subforum. So I wrote a poll instead.

Because a working bot is something like the cash version of a perpetuum mobile. and its scalable, it can play on as many sites as you want.. all at the same time :D

Because I am fed up with walking the paved road. I've done what you are supposed to do it by societies norm. Went to school, went to college, went to uni, got a job and started working. I've been working for the last 3 years and 364 days... for the same company, until I get fired tommorow.

Apperently where I life we had some laws changed last year, so that its easy to fire your workers when they are in service for less then 4 years (changing back to 3 years in 3 months from now...). Even though I've been working fulltime for close to four years, my boss can fire me right away... So instead of applying for a mortgage - which I could have done after 4 years of service - I will wake up tommorow without an income.

Meanwhile I recieved an insane tax assest, had to apear in court and pay a huge fine. But its not over yet... because I am losing income for a while I decided I had to move to cheaper housing and guess what the rental market is locked for me. I am not allowed to rent most of the houses because I earned to much over 2011 and top it off my girlfriend also got fired 6 months ago and my mom died...

To sum it: I am done with this society, this government, the justice dep. and the fucking high taxes, no decent healthcare etc.. fuck it! But I love playing poker and coding so I decided to build a bot. luckily I allready started on a bot a year ago (just for fun) and luckily I made a big fight with my boss after he told me he would let me go resulting in that I didnt had to show up at work for the last 3 months, so I had some time to get serious with it and to close in on my goal.

Making 1300+ euro's per month and moving to Spain. Kanker kut Nederland

mainly because I would like to apply some AI techniques. poker is a fascinating target as purly choosing the optimal strategy without playing your opponents will not win you anything :)

Playing an optimal strategy versus a very bad player will make you win something.
