It occurs to me that I'm at the stage in the game where I should be tracking my cash somehow rather than the faulty running total in my faulty head. Yes, I know I should have done it sooner, but frankly was afraid to take too close a look in case the amount of money lost scared me away from poker. Now I feel that I have some sort of a consistently ok online game going and am ready to face the numbers. If you knew my level of abhorrence with anything accounting related, you'd understand how bit a step this is for me.
So I'm setting up an Excel spread sheet. this is what I *think* I should be tracking:
- Site (I'd like to also track how much the site's interface affects me)
- Game (NLHE, LHE, Omaha, Stud)
- Type (tournament, SnG, cash)
- Net profit/loss
- Length of time played
- Emotional state
