illicit gambling:

a little better, but not as good as it looks, as i had a session go into the wee hours of Oct 1 where i was down roughly $100, so that, for some reason, counts for October.

hours played: 112.5
+/-: +$1069.66
$$/hr: $9.51
limit hands played: ~ 11,000
tourneys played: 38
tourneys cashed: 10

for october, i'm cutting back drastically on tourneys, as they drain my hourly rate.
