Man Oman!

Flying out to Oman tomorrow for at least three weeks with work.

Will post Februarys results up when I get back. Looks like I was slightly down on the month. Despite having a good month on the $25 STTs I was crap at the MTTs. Good luck at the tables.

First update of the year

Hi reader, not going to bother with this blog much this year - unless I get a big win (almost zero chance of that) or qualify for something (about the same chance) I will just be putting up my stats from Poker Tournament Tracker each month with a bit of blurb on how I am doing. I have religiously been keeping it up to date. Here are January stats:

From 01/01/2008
To 01/31/2008

Total Buy-Ins: ($ 1220.80)
Total Gains: $ 1415.68
Net Gains: $ 194.88
In The Money: 37.3% ITM
Return On Investment: 16.0% ROI
Games played: 83
Hours played: 81.3 h
Hourly: $ 2.40
ITM from Bubble: 86.1%

1st: 13
2nd: 6
3rd: 10
4th: 7
5th: 8
6th: 8
7th: 8
8th: 6
9th: 1

These were mostly STTs (only 22 of the 83 were MTTs) at which I just about ended up level. The profit comes from the MTTs including a win in 105 runner V Points Freeroll which netted 7500 points. These points have a real worth of 1p each and for the sake of acocunting I have converted these to dollars at a rough exchange rate of 2 bucks to the pound. I havent converted all the points yet as I am saving them up towards flight to vegas (86,000 miles at the moment) but I will be topping up the virgin poker account with them over the next couple of months in an attempt to qualify for the virgin poker festival in Newcastle in April.

Also got Betfair Rakeback £14.90 today which is always nice.
