April Poker Update

Send to Kindle

Since I’m not likely to be playing tonight, I can post my April Poker results now.

I invested (risked) a total of $352 during the month. I played in 24 tournaments. 16 were 1-table Hold’Em tourneys for $11 each, and 8 were multi-table Omaha Hi/Lo tourneys for $22 each. Without attempting to, I ended up spending exactly the same amount on 1-table Hold’Em as I did on multi-table Omaha.

Bottom line was ugly: -$94.80 for the month. Clearly, this month, I am glad I wasn’t doing this for a living. 😉

That said, I actually played well this month, and better than I’ve been in a while. I’ve learned that no one wants to hear about “bad beats” and “bad luck”, and honestly, it doesn’t bug me when it happens to me anywhere near what it used to, so I don’t even have the need to “get it off my chest” like I used to. Suffice it to say that there were a few key plays that made the difference between a plus month and a minus one…

Here is a highlight of the month: The multi-table Omaha games average around 80 players with the top 10 getting prize money. Out of the 8 that I played, I only made the money once. I came 7th, and received $110 for my $22 in that one. That said, I also finished 13th once, and 12th once, so I am getting close frequently enough that it’s not a waste to be playing in these tourneys.

Anyway, once I get started on poker I can write forever, I’ll leave it at that. Last statistic is that I played those 24 tourneys over 11 days, so that’s still 19 days this month where I didn’t play a single second of poker. Gotta retire soon, so I can get my playing time up. 😉
