Gross Profit

Since October I have focused primarily on the Daily Double Jackpot Multi table tournaments on Full Tilt and the Dirty Dozen Jackpot sit n go games on Betfred. In the later I have so far played 144, a gross of games with the following results:

I am encouraged by my efforts with a high proportion (16%) of wins. The Jackpot opportunity I had last month only adds to the satisfaction. At this win rate I would win the $2000 jackpot around every 1500 games. In real terms though the profit return is only around $50 for these 144 games which is progress at least. In a year when I have struggled to make a profit I have ended on a high. To make this approach more worthwhile I need to play a lot more games. No reason why I could not play a couple of thousand next year.

Meanwhile, my efforts in the Daily Doubles on Full Tilt have also been rewarded. Having played them for just a few months I am ranked in the top 6% of players on Full Tilt, a figure which ignores the $500 or so bonus payments I have received. I have also cashed in around a quarter of the tournaments played. The games fit great into my evening routine and once I make it past the money bubble I really enjoy the chase for those top final table spots. One disappointment is the lack of a win in one of these games. Something to rectify in the new year.

My approach will be to continue my recent good work, make a positive start to the year and build from there. I certainly have no reason to change things right now. I also intend to be a bit more active on this blog which I have neglected a little this year. Anyway seasons greetings to all and have a great 2014.
