March Poker Update

Send to Kindle

Those of you who know me, know that I’ve had a 2.5 year obsession with online poker. Lately, it has fizzled a bit (OK, more than a bit). Not for lack of interest, but for lack of time, and other obsessions not letting go.

Last night and today, I finally played a bit. That prompted me to look at my online stats for March, since the site keeps only 30 days of history easily accessible.

So, I didn’t play at all the first 16 days of March. From September 2004 – September 2005, I think I missed one day without playing at least one game (just to put this 16 day non-playing stretch into perspective!).

I played one tournament on March 17th. One on March 24th. One on March 25th. Last night (the 30th) I played in 4 tourneys, and today I played in 5. That makes a total of 12 in all of March. I’ve had days where I’ve played in more than 12 tourneys. 😉

Anyway, on the 17th, 24th and 25th, I was 0 for 3. Last night, I had a first and a third out of the 4 tourneys I played in. Today, a win and a second out of the 5 that I played in. Unfortunately, I played in two multi-table tourneys (last night and today) that were a tad more expensive than the ones I won, so I made money, but gave more back than the percentages would indicate.

Here’s the bottom line: I risked a grand total of $135.10 (about $11 on average for each tourney), and netted a +$17.12 for the month! Woo hoo. 🙂

So, I’m thinking, if I give up my day job, perhaps I can pay the rent with my stellar poker playing skills. 😉
