     The year 2009 is in the books.  Bingocliff entered a total of 168 tournaments and came into the $$ in 28 (16.66%) and came within ten places of reaching the $$ in 19 (11.30%), including ending on the bubble six (6) times.

NOVEMBER '09: Bingocliff has not mention all year that he has a side kick that plays poker.  The name is Tequilacat, and even so they will never meet in a match (because they both play for different poker sites) their web-pages are located at the same site on the Internet.

     Back in January 2009, Tequilacat won a tournament that set the cat up to having another winning year.  Bingocliff has struggled the first year of recording the tourneys entered, but on November 20, 2009 at poker site #12 Bingocliff reached the final table and ended runner-up in a tournament starting with 90 players and winning back 909% of his starting investment.  Bingocliff for the month of November entered a total of ten tournaments and came into the $$ in three (3) (30%) and within ten places in two others (including on 11-1-09, when Bingocliff started the month off ending #21 out of 101 players and landing on the bubble once again in 2009 for the sixth time.

October '09: Bingocliff entered a total of nine (9) tournaments at poker site #12 coming into the $$ in only one (1) (11.1%) on 10-10-09 ending in 15 out of 167 players.  Bingocliff came within ten places of finishing in the $$ in two (2) other tourneys.

September '09:  Bingocliff entered a total of 14 tournaments at poker sites #1, #2, #12, and #13 and came into the $$ in 4 (28.57%) and came within ten places of the $$ in two (2), including ending on the bubble on 9-22-09 at poker site #12, 21 out of 151 players.  At poker site #12 Bingocliff was most active entering eleven (11) tourneys and coming into the $$ in three (3).  At poker site #2 on 9-3-09 Bingocliff came in fourth (4) out of 72 players winning back 654.54% of the original investment.

     Overall, as the month diminished, Bingocliff felt the cards were going against his playing.  The gut feeling is to play less as the time period expires.  A few times Bingocliff was not to have a winning hand until deal thirty (30).  This has a tendency to be frustrating as you see your first two cards and fold before the flop in Texas Hold'em and look at four cards and fold before the flop in Omaha poker games.
