Ten Percent

The Governator has proposed a 1.5% sales tax increase which will bring local sales taxes to 10%.
I think a portion of my income is already taxed at 9% by the state.
10% of my co-workers were laid off by my company this week.
The stock market is down 10% since election.

And it feels like I have a 10% chance to have a bigger pocket pair old up when approaching the bubble of a tournament.

Instead of a top 5 stack I am out. kinzite had a few other suckouts to get to a top 3 stack when money bubble broke only to manage to go out 27th. I have no idea what it takes to go from 3rd to out when it was 27 paid.
