Let's see how my poker experiment is doing now that six months have passed.
- I lost $40.76 in 86 tournaments. Most of this loss came from medium or large tournaments, so this is not too bad. My goal in playing large tournaments is to win big. The profit will come all at once, not in a steady stream as is possible with single table tournaments or cash tables.
- I won $121.82 in 20 sessions at cash tables.
My return on investment for no limit hold 'em games breaks down like this. (NLHE accounts for all but 8 games.)
- Cash = +31%
- Tourny = -10%
- Single Table = +15%
- Small (2 - 5 tables) = +13%
- Medium (6 - 20 tables) = -82%
- Large (> 20 tables) = -68%
- All Games = +11%
My play at the cash tables is solid.
- 1,697 hands
- VP$IP = 24.34%
- PRF = 15.50%
- W$SD = 57.52%
- AF = 2.28
- AFq = 50.09%
- BB/100 = 24.55
I think I'm doing fairly well for a beginner. With some more experience I believe my tournament game will improve.
My balance sheet is healthy. My hourly wage is a joke. But hey, this is just for fun.
