May summary

Better late than never ....

Just got back from my break, so time for a quick review.

From memory, May was a pretty horrible month, with a fairly large downswing of 200+BBs at one stage and I was looking at having my first ever overall losing month. Fortunately though, I was receiving 50% rakeback from William Hill for the month, and my last few sessions all booked reasonable wins of 10-20BBs to end the month booking a win.

A couple nice developments for the month though - finally received another reload from Cake, and Pacific are now doing points to cash.

Last month's goals for May
  • Clear as much of my Bodog reload bonus as possible (cleared only about $60 - not as many good tables running this month)
  • Take advantage of the 50%+ rakeback at William Hill for May through RakeTheRake (pulled in about $300 - plenty of tables at ipoker, but requires table selection
  • Spend some more poker points and hopefully convert some to cash (fulltilt?) (didnt get round to it)
  • Play some more Pacific if it seems fishy (cleared about $60 in bonus cash there. not a lot of tables running)

The gain of $300 for the month was made up of:

Bonuses/vip/rakeback: $480
  • Bodog $60
  • Cake $30
  • Pacific $60
  • Fulltilt $30
  • William Hill $300
Poker bankroll Interest: $50

Poker losses: ($230)

For June the goals in order of priority are pretty much the same as May:
  • Clear as much of my Bodog reload bonus as possible
  • Clear some of my Cake reload that I received at the end of May
    Take advantage of the 40%+ rakeback at William Hill for June through RakeTheRake
  • Play some more Pacific if it seems fishy (plus they now have points for cash, thanks pacific, so feel free to sign up with them through RakeBackStat )
  • Spend some more poker points and hopefully convert some to cash (fulltilt?)

Current bankroll: $17,700
May time played: 20h
May profit / (loss): $300

very nice mate. seems like you complete the WH bonuses easily. Sucks that i'm a damn yank and can't play on william hill or I'd be taking advantage of such awesome bonuses myself. Keep up the good work!

I'm in awe of your consistency. To go so long without a losing month is amazing at FL IMO.
