And it'll be another doozy.  Over 100k for sure.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

My card is overclocked like never before right now. This will probably be my last grasping attempt at solo mining.

No way---I'm not spending any more money on mining hardware. Next time I have a few hundred bucks to bet on bitcoin, I'm just buying the things.
