2010, A Look Back
I was pleased with my 2010 online results. My big score was definitely winning a seat to the WSOP last summer. (Click here for the details). While there, I had the opportunity to have lunch with Jonathan Little, who has won a couple WPT tournaments and a WPT Player of the Year title. Part of the package was also three nights at the Rio in Vegas. Nice!
Full Tilt is where I played the majority of my online poker. I purchased the NinjaFT software in the summer, which enabled me to multi-table and still turn a profit. I ended 2010 up a little over $1,100 for the year on Full Tilt.
Although on a much smaller scale (small potatoes), I like to do the same thing that Barry Greenstein does and donate my online tournament winnings to charity. I require two things of the charities I support. First, the charity must benefit children. Second, at least 75% of the donations must go to the kids that the charity benefits. I've seen too many 501-C-3 designated charities that keep way too much of the donated money to pay for their overhead. Not on my dime.
Here's the list of charities that will receive a check from Lucki Duck.
Make A Wish Foundation
St Jude Children's Research Hospital
HOT Sertoma Club
My live poker winnings? Sorry, I keep those. Gotta keep building that bankroll!
Till next time, win the flips!
