Midyear Bonus

I'm stealing this idea from Bayne. I echo his sentiment of being glad that we don't have another points challenge like we did in January. I just don't have the time to devote to poker now between work and my increased social life. Having said that, I have no intention of missing out on my bonus so I have been playing some...



Looking at the calendar, only thing that sucked was that July 3rd, I only had 407pts... Having 400+ points and not hitting 500 for the 2 bonus medals sucks... if you're some sort of a points/medals degenerate.

At least half way through the month (well, sort of... July has 31 days), I am almost half way through my bonus... right on pace.



Unfortunately, I noticed that my lack of concentration on poker is clearly showing at the tables... as of right now, in July, I am up a whopping total of $158... pretty terrible...

up $158, isn't that like $2000 more than tour june winnings?

How do you compare to Sub Zero. I know he posts his winnings every month, and he usually clears around $4,000 each month.

There are months that I've cleared that much but in general, the past few months in this year, I have not cleared anywhere near what he does on a monthly basis. But I also think part of it is because I'm not putting in anywhere near the amount of time he puts in playing. I think he plays anywhere from 2-4hrs a day and I play 40 min to an hour each day (with exceptions of course where I put in about 2 hrs but that's about the most I've played in a day recently).

Alan, discovered your blog recently - been following Hoy and a few others for awhile now - and now realize that not only do we share the same city but we may also share the same place of employment. Small world. Hope that doesn't weird you out.
