Happy New Year and 2009 resolutions.....

And another year passes. Roll on 2009….

2008 was my best year to date with just over £6k profit so more than happy with that.
Used it to pay off some bills, buy a laptop and have a holiday but tbh am thinking I should have left myself about a £1k bankroll as opposed to the £300. (Won’t be making that mistake again).

Will struggle to reach these heights in 2009 as I will be playing alot less but hopefully this might improve my game so you never know.

Will be starting 2009 with circa £400 unless I have a decent win or major fook up in the next 2 days.

What are the objectives for 2009?

Make a profit whilst playing less poker due to other commitments

Not to cash out unless really needed so that I can play at bigger levels.
I am also going to enter all of the freerolls on offer via the Poker Player and Inside Poker magazines to have a chance of playing in decent prize money live events.

Rules for 2009 poker:-

1) Don’t play if I could be having quality time with my Son – 10% gone (normally play when he is in bed)
2) Don’t play if I am tired – 55% of the time
3) Don’t play if I should be doing an assignment – 15% of the time
4) Don’t play if pissed– 13% of the time
5) Don’t play if Wife is giving me evils – 5% of the time
All in all I figure I have 10 minutes left to play poker so why the fuck have I got a blog?? J

I hope it’s been a successful year for you as well on a personal and financial basis.

Cheers, thanks for reading and good luck.


Joke -

Credit Crunch - The married version..

Husband and Wife shopping in Tesco. Man picks up box of Stella and sticks it in the trolley. "What do you think ur doing?" asks Wife. "They're on offer. 24 cans for £10" says Hubby. "Put them back we can't afford it!"

A few aisles later the Wife picks up £20 face cream and puts it in the trolley. "What do you think ur doing?" asks Husband. "It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful" she replies. "So does 24 cans of Stella and it's half the fuckin price!!" says hubby running to the previous aisle.

Happy New Year all.
