2010 Poker Wrap-up

Well it was a not so great year overall. I ran bad for a bit. Played bad even longer. Managed to turn things around near year's end and all told with RB and bonuses I earned just over $9K.

Here is the year in graph form:


As you can see, I ran pretty meh a couple of times but managed to end the year ~$200 over AIEV. Total luckbox ldo. My hourly on the year with everything included? $22.90! Hell yeah ship the unskilled laborer pay!

Also lol at my "volume" under 240K hands? Pathetic! I've actually upped the amount I've been playing over the last couple months (more tables and longer sessions) so hopefully I can add to that next year (more later).

I have also recently (last ~4 weeks) started getting some coaching from ChuckTs. It's amazing to talk to Taylor about poker and realize just how poorly I currently play in a lot of spots. Honestly I'm making a ton of mistakes and still winning (ok barely winning) so I think the demise of the game may be greatly exaggerated (if the government doesn't kill it that is).

So let's get to goals for 2011:
1. Continue coaching with Taylor. I have payed for another ~12 hours so I'll continue at least that long (couldn't pass up his rate).

2. Play at least 340K hands. That's 100K more than this year but it shouldn't be too hard honestly.

3. Win more than I get from rb + bonuses. It was close this year but rb + bonuses was greater by about $120. Sad really. I'd be a rb pro but I don't even play enough to be that :( .

4. Take on a protege (for free of course). Yeah I know, why would I want to screw up someone else's game right? Well I plan to find someone, likely a CCer, who REALLY REALLY sucks and turn them into someone who just really sucks. See the difference. ;) I think that by helping someone along I can elevate my own level of thinking and thus help my own game, so it's totally selfish.

Anyway, guess that's about it for poker goals. Oh yeah guess I'll throw in one more: Update this PoS blog at least 6 times! Yeah that's right bitches bimonthly updates in your face!

So that's all. See you in a month or so with another update.

Happy New Year!

I also am looking for someone to show me the ropes if you are bored and looking for something to do. I just joined the forum. Played about 3k hands in the last 5 days, losing a total of several hundred dollars (at least 75% of that within the first 10 hours) at 9player $0.10/.25 tables but that is about the extent of my experience with poker.

How are you averaging your per hour rate? At 22.90 you averaged 393 hours of poker for the whole year. At an average persons work week of 50 weeks a year,it seems you made 4.33 ph.

If I played as much as an average person works, I'm pretty sure I'd manage to get in a million more hands too. $$s/hr was calculated by dividing total $$s won by the hours actually played (slightly less than 395 hours for the year).
