Well that's my total from all bonus betting. Sadly I have never separated it out (wish I had now).
But you have to remember, back when there was a big explosion in poker/online gambling, it was near impossible to lose.
Those of us clever enough used the $1000 guaranteed profit which was from blackjack and that led on to the $336 a month car payment. (Blackjack used to count as 100% towards the clearing requirement).
Also, some sites such as pacific poker (now 888) would give $50 sign up free cash with no play-through requirements. Sports betting live didn't have a delay on it, so we could bet on things that pretty much already happened.
And the average poker skill was so much lower.

These days you cant win from blackjack, sports betting has a delay and poker skill average is way higher. So it is a lot harder to win.
I average consistently around £100 a month (which is approx., $130 a month) atm.
Consider this started around 2003, that's 16 years.
16 * 12 = 192 months
$40000/192 months = $208 a month. That really isn't a lot.
Well don't get me wrong, its fun and all that, and helps a lot but its never gonna lead to winning millions.
These days I don't even break even on the games I play, nearly all my profit is coming from using bonus' and free bets wisely.

------------
Ended up with losses of 33.75 last night, so my total is
-$28.74.

This may sound painful (I took some horrid beats at critical times) but actually leaves me in profit across all my sites for the day, so although it is annoying, I am not losing any sleep over it.

Thats a long time you are playing.
Indeed there was a time where the bonuses were plenty and you didnt even have time
to play for them all. There were too many no deposit bonuses with 50$ starting capital and even
more than that.
The freerolls were extremely good also, and you could get a steady monthly income
by playing them.
Unfortunately i joined the wave at the end of it Smile when things started to decline.

I remember those days too, it was way more less hassle to actually win things and gather a decent sized bankroll even with dial-up internet speeds than it is today.
Still 40k is a damn good overall achievement, congrats.
I am probably still in the red with about 4-5k overall, but I started gambling way sooner than my 18th birthday so on average I am a break-even guy. Thats not too bad for a hobby which many considers a waste of time Big Smile

I think for me, I just hate losing and that drives me on for anything.

I remember when a nipper and used to go with the family to the greyhound racing. Back in those days you could put a 20p to win bet on at the tote underage, and we would all put our bets on. Whilst everyone else was having fun with 20p a race, 12 races, I would be seething that I was 92p down and working out how I could get back to positive.

Playing cards at xmas for pennies, everyone else was laughing and having fun whilst I would be busy remembering the order of the cards going back in the pack for 'chase the ace'.
And this is whilst I was only 9.

I can also retell times when I would be able to tell you the order of every reel on every fruit machine in about the 20 closest pubs nearest to my house, and could go out with a fiver, have half a pint in each pub and go home with a pocket full of cash. Got banned from most pubs for that.

It is why, when people tell me not to keep track of the individual loss, I will listen to them but ultimetly ignore the advice, that losing figure will be what drives me to be back to winning.

Yesterdays totals:

+ 11.59 (mainly from sports betting)
Total: -17.15

In my opinion, if focusing on irrelevant stuff helps you maintain focus on the important stuff, then just go ahead and do it...... Don't let the views of others who say not to worry or think about things take over your head and get you start wondering about that too! Have your losses in your head.... I do... But don't chase them.

Just a quick update.

I have been going through a bad patch and tilted a few quid away so have withdrawn everything from everywhere in an attempt to stop this slide.

I have left myself:

Sky: Freeroll entrys
365: £7
888: £10
Party: Points to buy into tournies

I am now £700 this year (with my target being £1200 a year (approx. $1500 atm I think) so a little behind target but I still have 4 months and the Christmas promo's so no reason why I won't be able to make up that extra £100).

I will also be making a small deposit on Full Tilt or Stars later, because I need stars to play the deal Tongue

You are behind target indeed and if we take into consideration the average per month,
i dont see you hitting the target Smile
But on the other hand, this is not something you cant achieve.
You are a tournament player, which means you can get the rest in a couple of good
finishes. Good luck

IQA..... Withdrawing your bankroll, or protecting your bankroll as I often call it, is a wise move. To start building, go back to basics and focus on the simple things and get back into your rhythm before making risky moves which may be costing you quite dearly. It's a mind set thing and you need to convince yourself that playing tight is a good way to go.... Just don't tell everyone!

Did not know you have these goals. Tbh I should do something like this to be able to account every month for their ins and outs...
Good luck!

It is fairly easy to do if you are disciplined, it is about £3.30 a day.

My trouble is I have chased quite a bit this year cause of the wedding and a downswing too.
