Smile Poker Charter Review Oct 2016

Poker Charter review 2016…

Wow, just realised it’s almost 2 years since I finished my first “Poker Charter”.
When I started the charter I was a little fed up with the way my poker had descended into complete “gamble fest” and wasting my time , energy and money!! While %”#@ing off more than a few players in the process, anyway my thoughts were “What have I got to lose?” if I turn it around the “Charity” gets some money and I get to keep playing poker etc. etc.

The charter really helped me focus and try harder when playing poker the results spoke for themselves, I had the best run of results playing poker ever..

I did find it restricting, because part of the charter was to keep a record of every tournament and log the results “To keep it official”, easy to do when you arrive home at 9/10pm after busting out early harder when it’s 2/3am with the same result, some nights it was stick a post it on the charity’s share and elastic band it until the next day!!

It was a huge honour to gain some extra cash for “The Capuchin Day Centre” and to my mind these people are “Legends” what they do for homeless people in Dublin on a daily basis is FANTASTIC!!!

People often ask was it difficult passing over the winnings once my results started to turn around, the answer is simply “No” because in my mind once the charter was in play 1/3 of whatever was handed to me after the tournaments belonged to the charity no working out what it had cost to play or anything else…

It was hard to keep focused for the length of time I allocated to the charter, in retrospect I should have reduced it to prevent me from losing focus on the charter, I decided to keep a copy of the charter in my wallet for the times I started to “wander”

So if your reading this your probably asking “why now, why do a review of the charter?”
Simply put when I started the charter first is was running bad and it helped me focus!!
Now I’m running pretty good and I have qualified for both league finals in the Fitz this weekend.. With that in mind I am restarting “Officially” the Charter for the next month starting now.. After that I will revise it…

Thanks….

I think I remember the original thread. Any stats on what you won/contributed out of curiosity? Did you still make a profit after giving away a 3rd of incomings regardless of outgoings? If you did fair play, and as you say, all for a great cause.

Thanks...

Final count was €2,385.00 (officially) was passed over to the charity, unofficially it was a bit more as I found some more receipts after, don't have a clue what I spent on tourneys over the course of the charter!! but 66% would be €4770 and €2,385.00 of this was my bankroll for playing tourneys I don't remember having to top it up much....

Anyway back to the present moment, Just back from finishing 9th in the Fitz for €70 and snagging the €440 ticket for blind Omaha, while I don't mind gambling with my own money !! I'm not prepared to gamble the charity's money so converting the ticket to cash brings it up to €510 so €170 will be passed over to “The Capuchin Day Centre” as per charter...

Update :)

One tournament league(Fitz) down and no cash , just before the dinner break I get it all in with pocket A’s and get busted by pocket 4’s on a K,rag,4 flop with running rags (Ce Sara Sara) as they say in the Eurovision "nul points" or in this case "nul cash".

After scoffing my free chicken dinner (I know no such thing), I head around to the SE for €50 double chance and a chance to redeem myself!!!
3am we do a 3 way chop for €310 (redemption), another €103.33 (pedantic) in the kitty for the charity; roll on next league……
