On Jan 31st, I stepped into the fray once more for one last crack before the challenge deadline and after 2 hours and 31 minutes of play, I left the table with a $459.06 profit and my head held high. The challenge may have been a failure, but I still made a half decent profit and managed to finish on a positive note. Since then, it's been very up and down. I've yet to really find my feet, but I'm in profit for February and even won my biggest pot since playing $2/4.

I'm a little tired of writing about my heads up experience, so I'm going to leave it for a while. At the end of the month I'll update my progress and detail exactly what I learned from the challenge and whether or not I have successfully utilised that information in improving my game.

Until then, here is that hand with the final stats below (exc. the rakeback which should be in the region of a thousand dollars)
