PTR & OPR Scores... Break Even or not?
Somebody help me please?
I have deposited on FTP three times since starting to play poker online, in May 09, of amounts of $30, $30 and $40. Admittedly I have lost it all... damned cash games!! However, I have learnt a lot since starting out and I am slowly beginning to see results and address the balance.
However I have had 2x freeroll wins of $15, and (thanks to CC) a 5th place ITM finish of $24... added to this my $50 bonus from completing last years 'Take 2' promo. By my reckoning, a total of $104.
When I look at my profile on PTR it shows an overall loss of -$118(?). It seems that whilst PTR is logging my losses, it does not take into account my winnings from freerolls
& bonuses. So where DO I stand?
Admittedly, when I started to play online, I was a little afraid that I would end up with spiralling debts, as you sometimes hear the stories of the guy that put up his house on a hand of poker etc., but I feel quite proud of the fact that I have managed to keep this under control. My addiction is with the game of poker... not in gambling.
like to think that I have broken even over the course of the last year, but PTR says otherwise. Am I just deluding myself or are there flaws in PTR's calculations?
I notice that freeroll winnings are not included on the OPR website either.
Someone please help!!!
