    00 #488131136 13 - 0.25 +17.07-$ 06.25starting BR =$10.82 Profit = 173%ROI

    SO, the 1st half i played these 1 @ a time and the 2nd half
    i played 2 tables @ a time to finish b4 the month was over
    but my results suffered a real bashing as i went 219 in the
    last 21 games
    All in all, I've learned quite a bit about these SnGs and can
    see they could be a "real" help to the BR if i were to play well every game.
    #1 I still overbet, so that remains a problem.
    #2 I still play some starting cards that are a bit loose.
    #3 I am more prone to tilt than i thought.
    #4 I have so much to learn

    Special Thanks to:
    Monkeyskunk4, who really got me started in the right direction;
    19honu62 , who's coaching has really cleared some thing up;
    Videos by SpaceGravy, xflixx, ahar010, & The Langolier

    I will play another 1 of these Starting Jan1,2012 & see if i have learned anything
    Gain or Loss on $6.25 Invested -->(+$10.82)=(+173%ROI)

              Amazing how you can do as well as this and be focused on the flaws of your game. I'm the same way, because we all have so much to learn. It's great that you seem to be seeing your game with a level head, and that you completed the whole challenge! Well done! Congrats on the fantastic result. umbup: Just to give you a bit of perspective on the variance of 45-man's (and hopefully untilt you), I play 9-man's, have a positive ROI and ~50% ITM at the moment (only about 250 games in), and I frequently go on streaks losing five games in a row, and not outright winning one for about ten games in a row. I imagine that with five times the players, streaks of five or ten or sometimes fifteen games should be perfectly standard on occasion. Looking forward to your January challenge.

                    For whatever reason, my calcs show a 43.3% ROI, but it's fantastic nonetheless.
