              I finished February...barely

              Thank you for this challenge - and for putting up your own prize money - but I do not think I can commit the time to it next month. As soon as I figure out this computer, I will email you my February results. After 100 games of $0.25 / 90 player SNGs my BR=$26.30, profit was $20.05, ROI=+80.2% if I got the math right. If anyone wants to view these results, they are posted in my blog.

              Cheers and good luck in March!

                  I've got to have another crack at Cowboy's Challenge - I can't commit too much of my br due to the other stuff so I'm going all the way back down to the $0.10 games.

                  As an aside -

                  I was listening to the BBC 4Extra radio station today and they were playing an old episode of The Goon Show.

                  (Yes I know - I still live in the 1950's)

                  The house band in these shows were great and today they played a track that I just had to search out and link for Cowboy.

                  Good luck all

                            Sleepy is partly right in that you start with 25 x 2.50 = $62.50 but you dont need to cash out you simply need to track your games on a spreadsheet.

                              Final profit = $20.05 ROI = 80.2%

                              I am very happy with the final result. I think anyone who follows the teachings here in PSO is bound to succeed at poker.

                              Game #65 is milestone, because from here forward I have a positive ROI% for this challenge. Any earnings from now on are pure profit.

                              Game #31 was particularly interesting, because I was almost blinded out by having an extremely long run of unplayable hole cards. I mean the poor run started about eight games previous, and this was like a punctuation. My only starting hands: 77, 88, KQs, all in middle position, all of which I correctly layed down to better (monster) hands. In the end, with five big blinds left, my QQ was cracked by A9.
