2006 Year In Review

Here are some stats and charts for my 2006 year in review:
Here is a chart by month. I had all losing months. My monthly average loss was -$750.10/month. It was a costly year in 2006, I ended with a total lost of $3000.41
Here is a Cumulative Chart with each session in 2006 mapped out. In total, I played 41 sessions in 2006. That is about 1 in 3 days playing poker or about 34% of the days in 2006 playing the game. My average loss per session is about $73.18 per session. As you can see I lost allot early on learning the game. I was stuck at close to $3000 by the end of the year.

Motor City Casino

Today I venture to Motor City Casino and try my new acquired hobby of Texas Hold'em. As it turned out it was the start of an expensive lesson in the world of poker. Below is my cumulative results for my first year at poker. I proceed to lose today and my losses continued to over $6K during the next six months, but I slowly been making my way back to even after one year of play.

Soaring Eagle - Where It All Began

It is the end of the Golfing season in Michigan and my friend Frank and I decided to head north for the weekend for a few rounds before the season ends. We were very close to Soaring Eagle Casino. I always wanted to try my luck with Poker, so we went and I had my first experience at the poker table.

I first bought in for $50. I won maybe one hand, then loss it all. I bought in for another $100 and played some more. I didn't really know what I was doing, but was having fun. Then I had AJ and limped in. I loss to the small blind who flopped 2 pair with 93. My poker lesson, if you are gonna play AJ then you better raise it. If you just limp, then be ready to fold it...
