Annual Results

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. -Winston Churchill

Well, it's been 12 months. Some were long, some short; some easy, others hard; many profitable, and several less so. Unfortunately, the last month was one of the latter. Including rakeback, last month I made about $400. And there I was hoping to finish on a high. However, as I've recently told a struggling friend and fellow pro: it's all about the long term results. So, without further ado....

Half-year profit: $20.2k over 250 hours

Yearly profit: $64.8k over 780 hours

Equivalent salary in UK sterling: £54k

It could have been better, but it was an ok start to the pro life. And by and large, I enjoyed my years work, which I haven't been able to say before. So, here's to the new year, and all it may bring....

SubZero -

I've been trying to come up with a spreadsheet for expectation of profit at various limits of NLHE and PLO.

I was wondering if you might be able to give me further details about your past year of professional poker.

Namely, I'd like to know the number of hours, number of hands, and BB/100 earned at the various table stakes you played.

If you're alright passing along that information (which I'd only use in my personal calculations), I'd be quite grateful. My e-mail address is klopzi at gmail dot com.

Thank you and congrats on a fine first year!

Today, there are more and more people interested in learning to play online pokers. While poker has been around for hundreds of years, recently it has become very popular, especially among young, college aged men.

Ryver, I play about 6 tables on avg, still usually a mix between 3/6 and 1/2, tho sometimes play 0.5/1 or 5/10.

Allin4high, know I can be slack, but I like to think it's quality over quantity.

Klpzi, I'll send you that stuff soon....
