With just tonight to go the month of October is finished.
Taking tonights buy-ins into account the monthly total is a profit of £1417.
Taking into account that this is mainly taken up with the £1159 ($2k) provided by WillHill for the flights to the CPC and the £200 that I sold the cruise element for it would have been a pretty bare month without them.
However I am more than happy with my lot and having taken the majority of it out to pay for the alternate holiday my bankroll now stands at almost £1100.
I am going to post a profit of £1350 and carry the £67 over to November as a starting point.
One change I am going to make is to set up a separate sports betting account as this is affecting my bankroll as my luck is shyt on the football at present and I want to start keeping precise records as I do with the Poker to see whether it is worth bothering with anything other than "interest" bets.
Having had a good look at my play over the month I need to make a marked improvement on consistency and stick to the starting hands I have in my mind for the various stages of tournaments and not get sidetracked by mirroring other players poor play.
In addition I am going to spend the next couple of months sticking to the buy-ins I am used to and research other sites with decent buy-in (guaranteed pay out) tournaments that finish at a reasonable hour.
There are good £30 and £50 buy-ins on Hills but having seen the finishing times of approx 02:00 these are not exactly brilliant when you need to be at work for 05:00.
I have also decided that I am going to play all of the Super Series (Shifts permitting).
Overall I am happy being a profitable player but I really want to improve the success rate and will be re-reading a couple of books when I am on holiday to recap on the learning points to try and improve my play.
I am also going to play the bloggerment tourneys as they look good value. HairyGymnast.Com organises them so have a look if you are interested.
Anyways I will leave it there for now as I have some research to do.
And a joke :-
When did Pinnochio first realise he was made of wood? When he had a wank.... and his hand caught fire!!!!
Good luck all.....
