I actually am a new CAPS player and I'm not really playing per-se; rather I'm using CAPS to help track stocks that I own or am considering owning.

CAPS can be great for you. The notebooking features of the 'game' are excellent for following stocks that you own or are interested in. Write a pitch describing why you bought something. Review it periodically or when there is news and reply to your pitch with that information / opinion. Note other opinions and record notes on them. Use your blog to record your own thoughts on your investments. Note what went right or wrong.

You may not find yourself 'winning' the game part of CAPS, but years from now you'll have a great history of your own investing opinions.
