One of my major goals for this year was to find a new regular game that could generate some reasonable profits. I have to say I think I may have found it with 9 man turbo knockouts. Over the past week I've been grinding away at them and have turned a losing month into a profitable one. After the first couple of days playing about 20 games a day I found myself getting a lot of 1st and 3rd place finishes and noticed I was getting pretty close to the Battle of the Planets low orbit leaderboard. It's not something I had much considered before but after looking into it I was spurred on by the prospect of some nice prizes just for making profits. I decided to make a real effort to play as many games as I could before the week was done but time and again I came up just short or the low orbit board, my best effort reaching 391 points putting me only in the top 400. However with only a few games left until I reached the 100 mark I realise I was on track for a high orbit place and despite a bit of a bad run nearer the end I got a reasonable 1548 points placing me 31st in the high orbit board. So even without a really good block of 20 I still managed to play better than most over a longer period proving consistency is the key. I recently read in someone else's blog that it's no longer slow and steady wins the race, it's proper planning and consistency.. pretty sound logic if you ask me.
