I had a great year in 2007. Considering the relatively low volume I play I had some great scores over the course of the year, ending with my win in the Stars $35k gtd in December.

I cashed for over $50k in total with an ROI approaching 120% over nearly 1000 tournies. I also managed to win 2 WSOP Main Event seats. It's not a massive sample size, but I think that's about as much volume as I'll ever be able to put in as a recreational player.

Playing the WSOP was definitely the poker highlight of the year for me. I really enjoyed my time in Vegas. When I left I felt like I would leave it a few years before coming back, but after a few months I started to feel like I was ready to go back again. I'll definitely be making an effort to play some sats this year and hopefully I'll be able to get out to Vegas again this summer.

The WSOP schedule isn't great for me this year, so what I might do if I win a seat is fly out and play $10k worth of prelims. I did say I'd do this last year though and still ended up playing the main. It really depends if people I know are going to be in town during the main or if there is a big meetup during the preliminary events.

I flip good in 2008 so far. Went out of both the Stars Million and the Full Tilt 750k on Sunday to big flips. I hope it's not a sign of things to come.

Here's to running as hot in 2008.
