January Poker Summary

The Good:
Made Iron Man - Bronze
+$94.70 in Omaha Tourneys, including winning the $5.50 PLO8 on FTP on 1/24.
Above $700 now in the Ferguson Challenge

The Bad:
No Live Play
-$27.76 in Holdem Tourneys (59)
-$7.56 in Omaha Cash Games (Would be + if you count rakeback!)

The Ugly:
Just a pathetic showing in the WPBCOOP on PS. Didn't cash in any event. Barely got a Main Event Seat & couldn't convert it into anything.

Looking Forward to February:
Part of the Fish Tribe on Survivor Donkey Island which starts Feb. 13th.
Continue to focus on NLO8 cash games and PLO8/NLO8 tourneys.

Seat 9: matthemouth24 (big blind) folded before the Flop

So after having to watch my language a bit with the 2 youngest in the room I had to look up the odds myself on that one.

85.7% favorite on the flop when it all went in.
Even after the bad turn card I was still a 70.7 favorite to win.

Anyway, used the Card Player odds calculator & noticed they had an app for the iPhone, so I downloaded it & it's pretty slick. It was free @ the iTunes store, where they did have others & some cost $. Anyone pay for any of those?

Now I can calculate how bad my beats are in live games. Look out!
