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+
