End of Year stuff

I have virtually retired from playing for 2008, so thought i'd do my usual end of year review.

Here were my aims for 2008 that i blogged at the end 2007:

- Number one aim to practice better bankroll management and game selection. I will not allow myself to make the same mistakes that I did this year
- Play some high stakes cash games in Bobby’s room at the Bellagio
- Get luckier in tournaments fail
- Crush the big PL Omaha games online
- Have a winning year at NL Hold’em cash
- Play less poker fail
- Don’t lose over 50% of my bankroll in January as I have for the last two years.

Well 5/7 isn't too bad... Its been a really amazing year overall. I had just one small losing month. I lost over $50k a day 4/5 times this year. Whereas in 2007 it must have been around 10 times.

Tourneys sucked in 2008. I didn’t play many but i ran/played bad for most of the ones i played. Bubbling in the $25k Full Tilt Omaha tournament and coming 3rd in my Poker Million heat were the worst days.

Anyway here are some stats/graphs of my year.

25/50 in 2008


50/100 in 2008
I'm going to set myself some tough targets for 2009:
- Win $2 million+ online
- Win $500k+ in tourneys
- Cash in a WSOP event in Vegas
- Get involved in some 500/1000 action
- Have a winning year staking
- Play 25000 hands minimum at 100/200+

I spot a downswing in the 25 50 graph, did you play bad or run bad? ;-)

Keep up the blog, hardly any high stakers bother.

pretty amazing year. some people couldnt even get those graphs in photoshop let alone at the poker table. good luck winning 500k+ in tourneys - it will be a pretty hectic schedule achieving that, or else win the first one you play and retire from tourneys for the year.

Man that 50 100 makes me lost for words.

Its like a 76 big blind/100 hands over a 30k + hand sample. Have you been investigated as a superuser? lol
