Ultimate Bet Challenge Update – April, 2011

Yes, I know it is not April, but the UB Challenge is over for March.

It was the tale of two streak runs...starting off slow and finishing strong. It took almost the entire $9 in entry to get on the plus side, but not the full $9.

So, I had to keep going and lost again early, before winning a SNG tourney and righting the ship.

Faldo also played in one UB MTT and booked a small win in that, finishing 135th.

Not related to the UB Challenge, Faldo also had a 2nd in a PokerStars 90-player SNG this month.

My accountant – pictured here – updated the record for the UB Challenge:

For March, Faldo bet $13.58 and that returned $21.06 – for a profit of $7.48.

This is the biggest month profit wise for this challenge. The new bankroll for UB (that started at $9.02) is $42.09!

The purpose of this challenge was to show that you can grind your way to profit playing on-line poker. It actually involves as much to do with bankroll management as it does with poker playing talent.

Faldo is living proof that you can be short of poker talent and still squeak out a profit.

Your accountant seems to be a tad under-dressed

Funny....I thought over-dressed.

Regarding outfits - you have one standard for your accountant and another for your caddie.

Ever consider having one single standard for women no matter what job she has?

Woody, I am shocked at you! Have you never heard of freedom and equal rights for women?????

How they show up for interviews and for working for me is completely up to them.

How THEY decide to be 1/2 or 3/4 or completely naked (with minimim 3 inch heels of course) is up to them.

After all....women are people too!

You can quote me.
