Ending Bankroll - $17.81
Profit - $11.56


The goal of doubling the bankroll was achieved, but I believe I should have done better. I found my best results were when I played one table at a time. When I made a bad decision on one table it tended to cost me on all my open tables. When I only had one open I had time to shake off my self loathing before continuing to play.
