Starting out with a BR$130 $80 on UB. and $22.50 from PS. The $22.50 started from a free roll here on FCT. Place on final table. Unable to play in the grand tourney. Grabbed some $T. (Thanks BOB) and played Some $1-$5 tourney walking away with $22.50.Was playing some $1 Tourney and .02/04--.05/.10 limit and .02 NO-limit. Don't laugh we all have to start some place. On UB I was up around $120 hit a $2.20 MTT. Now down to about $60. The big shot played some $10-$20 tourney I should no of.On PS up around $27.00. Moved from .02/.04 up to .05/.20 lost $7.41. Bad play and tilt. landed back in .02/.04 tilted some more for about $4. Regrouped worked back to $18.37.Rethinking my game Going to stay in Limit Holdem .02/.04. Playing to many different games at first will drip away BR. Find one that you can build skill and your BR with stick with it. then move on.Goal:Stick with limit hold'emFollow BR rules move up when the hit 400BB of next limitmove down when they hit 250BB of lower limitRead TTOP and SSHE (started them but need to complete and reread)Jan 1st make new goalBR is at $81.45 UB=$63.08 PS=$18.37 Will grind out hand in Limit Hold'em:continues my renewed dedication to LHE and building a bankroll. 50 hands per day minimum, 100 hands per week minimum, 5K+ hands for the month. I should be moving up to .5/.10 within the next 500 hands or so if my win rate holds, and I should be able to put in at least 2.5K hands at the new limit. If I can run at 6BB/hr, I should be poised to move up again in January.Primary goal is:Build BR to around 2505k+ hands of LHE. Keep analyzing and getting better. Rabidtortuga I stole some style from your post Thank you.

BR is at $136 as of the end of November. Started november at $94. Finally started grinding out hands again, and all this profit is from .10/.20 LHE on stars. Ran at 2.21 BB/100 for almost 8K hands for the month.December continues my renewed dedication to LHE and building a bankroll. 500 hands per day minimum, 5K hands per week minimum, 20K+ hands for the month. I should be moving up to .25/.50 within the next 5K hands or so if my winrate holds, and I should be able to put in at least 15K hands at the new limit. If I can run at 2BB/100, I should be poised to move up again in January.Primary goal is 20K hands of LHE, though, and keep analyziing and gettng better. The winrate will take care of itself.

I'll edit this later after I have time to crunch numbers, but suffice to say, November blew. Played tired way too much, wasn't patient. No major tilting but quite a bit of leaking. I'm happy I got to see any profit at all. Also, got to watch my opponents catch two perfect cards on me twice in a week - sweetness:) Not that I'm bitter...Seriously, I had maybe slightly worse than average bad beats, but mostly I made too many bluffs and too many calls without spending enough time reading the situation properly and being patientIt's a good thing I've learned my lesson.Well, I should get back to my sngs. I've had three hours sleep, so I should be fine till 6 a.m. or so...Edited- (also, didn't play a whole lot, due to work and other commitments.)47/100 (ITM) up $32.30 ROI - 13.5 - icky! Also up another $20-$30 on Fulltilt, so maybe $50-$60 for month.December goals - play better:) Play more (200 sng min) Try for ITM of 50+ and ROI of 25+

November Goals:12-table $6 SNGs, play 48 a day - Varied from 36-72, but I took about 7 days off this monthSustain my 15% ROI ROI was 11%Earn GoldStar(im gonna do it this time tongue.gif)Fail, would have achieved it but I got sidetracked the last few days with putting together my new PCPossibly move up to $16's when I hit $3kDidnt hit 3k as I took out over $1000 this monthProfit Goal: $1500 Profited $676, thanks to my horrible downswing @ the end of the month
novemberresultsql5.jpgI ran very bad for the most part, I thought things were starting to turn around near the end of the month, then I got smacked in the face and lost 30 buyins in the last 2 days. I took a week off after my "roller coaster ride" which I shouldnt have done. I thought I was playing bad which I wasnt, just hit a rough patch. I did rework my game a little bit afterwards though, and I think that Im playing a little better now. Total SNGs played: 966SNG Profit: +$676MTT Profit: $0Total Profit: +$676Current Bankroll: $2256(I took out $1070 over the course of this month)December Goals:12-table $6 SNGs, play 60 a dayObtain 15% ROI or higherEarn GoldStar once and for allNO BREAKSProfit Goal: $1500Even if I dont run optimally Ill still be able to reach my profit goal, so its going to come down to me putting in the time. And I REALLY need the money this month since Christmas is comin up :PHope you all faired better than I did lol.

Oh well, if your base belongs to me I'll post my results here.

November GoalsRemember how to win at 6maxPlay more HU Maintain Gold StarMake enough money to start taking shots at nl100 by the end of the monthPlay live at least once
Play a live cash game at least once, I played a self dealt tourney last night and that was just stupid.
November ResultsYeah, pretty much my best month ever, weeeee.NovemberStats.pngNovemberGraph.pngAlso +$370 live. I remebered how to win 6max.Didn't really play much HUDid Maintain GoldstarHave now pretty much moved up to nl100Played live 3 times, two tourneys and one cashgame. Lost at both tourneys, won at cash game.I should just not play tourneys, especially live self dealt tourneys.So got 4/5 goals.December GoalsI like not having a specific monetary goal so I'm not going to put one.I want to play at least 20k hands.Make Platinum star.Continue to play live occasionally.Depending on how I feel and how well I'm doing, take some shots at nl200 sometime this month.I want to try and play 1k HU hands, just because it's good for my game to practice.Also if I'm awake I might play the Sunday Hundred Grand this week.I also have to decide pretty quickly what I'm doing with my job. I'm about 50/50 about whether I want to quit my job before Christmas. This would mean I would most probably be living off poker from January until the end of March.

For me, November was a huge success. Finished the month up $12,619 despite barely getting in 20 hours a week. I also reached both my goals and since I ran well enough to make 1/2 early, I ended up making over 20,000 VPPs putting me well on my way to Supernova. I've had to make quite a few cashouts, so my BR's not huge, but it's still quite comfortable at 1/2.My goals for December are:1. Reach SupernovaYeah, it should be pretty easy at this point, but it was kind of a 2 month goal that I set last month so I still want to mention it. I've got 10,469 VPPs to go at this point. I was considering eventually moving more of my play to Bodog after hitting this goal, but it's so convenient to be able to use PT and 6-table, that I might just stick with Stars for a while.2. Get to 2/4 PLO by the end of the monthI figure that I want 40 BI minimum to play 2/4 comfortably, so that would require me to get my active BR up to $16,000. After cashouts, I've got just over 8K right now, so even if I make another $2,000 cashout this month, just winning as much as I did last month should get me there pretty easily. I did run pretty well last month, but I think that's counteracted by the fact that I didn't have the roll for 1/2 until 2 weeks ago.That's about all I really care about right now poker-wise. I'm not going to get anywhere near the 2007 goals that I set back in January, but I'm happy just to have my life back on track. If I continue playing under control at stakes I can afford, I should be able to do all those things in 4-6 months.

U mean I have to follow iggy in the goals thread?! Mine look so insignificant compared to those numbers. Anyways,

Goals for November...20k hands of $50 plo - ANY profit at all, just end up in the black for the month. $500 in rakeback. Make Iron at ft. Mix in a donkament here and there, make one more final table of an event with over 100 players. Starting roll - $1,900End goal - $2,750
Didn't make 20k hands, I played terribly my first week at 50 and had to drop back down to 25 and reevaluate things. I'd dug myself a $400 hole right off the bat, so I had some work to do. Ended up with 15k hands total, and eventually did manage to scratch back to a small profit. I also played the $4.40 challenge, and took second place. Thanks to some shrewd dealmaking on my part, I took home about $300 for that, and won enough in the tourneys to cover the buyins and the entry fee for the challenge. With about $300 in rakeback earned, I should be close to my end goal for br when it comes in.Goals for December - 20k hands of 50plo, 2.5bb/100 winrate, 350-500 in rakeback. Gold or Iron status at FTP. Play LESS tournaments until I get above $3k, it's been a leak. Starting roll ~2,500. End goal ~3250

My initial goal was to reach to $50 dollars by the end of December, ended up with $209 by November.My new December Goal is to reach $625 and and take a shot in the 0.10/0.25 SH NL tables.Work on my fundamentals of No-limit holdem, try to win at about a 25% $VOIP and a 40% $VOIP. AKA switching gears.Play 12k hands, since I can't start playing until after Dec 14, I'm going to have to put a lot time in at the $0.05/$0.10 SH tables.Only play a maximum of 4 Tables at a time.Try to obtain a 15PTBB/100.

November Goals:# Play >100sngs at >7% ROI# Play >15k hands of NLHE at >3ptbb/100# Play >5k hands of PLO at >3ptbb/100# Play some MTTs and make a FT.
Lost $500 in a prop bet.Internet sucked and lost me a several hundred in disconnections from tournaments.Only played 2k hands each of PLO and NLHE because of connection problems.Overall it just wasn't a good month.Thankfully my internet is fixed now, and I should have time to put in a good number of hands. I'm really playing PLO better than I ever have before, and I'm going to stick to that this month.December Goals:# Play 20k hands of PLO# Run at >8ptbb/100

For November:I want to make $2000I want to play 20K handsMake my showdown winnings land within about 10% of my Sklanksy dollar winningsPlay a few more PLO and PLO8 sngs/tournies as the players are horrible at themFinish watching the torrent of about 60 Cardrunner Videos that I DL'd.I wrote a lot about my overall feelings of how I played in the blog, so I'm not gonna repeat them here. I probably made too many mistakes this month to have a winning month, but it should've been breakeven if Variance didn't screw with me, so I like my prospects for next month.
I made $2050 in cash games and another couple of hundred from random SNGS and after losing $1250 last month, I'm actually up $1250 after this month so that means that I actually made closer to $2500 this month. OH, right. I played some hands at my GF's during Thanksgiving that aren't in my PT database.In November:Profit: $2500 weeeeeeeeee!I played 14.5k handsI didn't watch many CR videos this monthI played very few sngsOverall I thought November was much better. I played some 1/2 PLO and had one very very bad day where I lost like 5 buyins mostly due to a maniac at the table who I couldn't seem to get the best of, which basically just cropped off a very good winning month at 1/2 and .5/1 6 max NL. I was very happy with my play overall as I thought I made a lot of adjustments to my game which resulted in a better month.NL GRAPH: http://img132.imageshack.us/my.php?image=novemberuo2.jpgFor December:Profit: $3000Hands: 15k+Finish reading PLO material and get in at least 3,000 hands at .5/1 6 max and show a profit. Stay away from 1/2 6-max PLO for December.Continue to play well at 1/2 6 max NLHE.

this is my 1st time actually setting a goal for myself.Now that i have enough in my account to sustain a sufficient bankroll for the limits i want to play (50NL), I can actually make an attempt to set goals and go after them while keeping proper BR management.So I had no goals for last month, but this November I have a few goals:-Have $750 profit-Play 10k hands of 50NL 6-max-Make it to my local casino at least 4 times (once a week)
well things didn't go too well in the NLH category. i ran hot to start then fell off the charts, bad plays, impatience and bad luck all rolled into one. 1/3 into the month i switched back to my true love, PLO. I also dabbled in 1/2 limit at times, just to make sure I wasn't losing my sharpness there as wellFor the month i played 2474 hands of 50NL and 897 hands of 1/2 limit. played 7188 hands of 50PLO as well for a grand total of 10559 hands at .25/.50 and above.(GOAL MET for hand total...just not all at 50NL)I started month with 1493 in account. transferred $100 to full tilt and built that up to $139 in tournies and a few hands of PLO (25PLO). My PS account is at $1989 (+280 in tournies, -303 in NLH, -34 in prop bets, +653 in PLO) for an ending total of +$635 I made it to the casino 4 times this month (GOAL MET). 1st trip took 2nd in tourney for +440. 2nd trip played 2-10, finished -300. 3rd and 4th trips were back to back days, went -265 in tournies and +473 in 2-10....GRAND total live = +348TOTAL MONTH PROFIT = +$983 (GOAL MET)other misc stats, cashed in 16/109 tournies for a 24.4% ROI. It was also my 1st month with a negative ROI in PLO in 5 months. very unhappy about that.Also became gold star on PS for 1st time ever.DECEMBER GOALSI will be in vegas (for college bowling rathar than to gamble...not to say i wont do any of THAT as well) from the 14th til the 21st. That will cut greatly into my online time.I want to -play 6k hands of 50PLO and 2k hands of 50NL-maintain gold star-profit $1000-play at local casino 3 times again-find time to log in 30 hrs at the 1/2 NL tables in Vegas.-play in 70 online tournies and keep a positive ROI in PLO

I Didn't make any November goals as I knew i wasn't going to be able to play much,I play 12 MTT's overall and had a ROI of 2% and a profit of $1 ship it!,Brought my bankroll above $600 this month mainly due to a friend I backed in a few donkaments doing well, This is kinda of a landmark Bankroll amount for me as it was the highest I built my Pacific roll before going on Monkey tilt and blowing it playing LHE.I also reached 100 Mtts played (took me 7 months lol) and my stats look decent, kinda concerned about my ITM % being too high though at 34% but i dealing with that by re-reading HOH2 and watching a bunch of PXF HHs focusing on the Bubble Area,December GoalsI've got exams until the 17th and am gonna *try* and not play at all until then,Aftet that however i'm going to start playing a set schedule of tournament per day to try and get a decent volume in before 2008,Assuming I follow Schedule i should be able to play 30-35 mtts,I'm off college til the middle of January so this is the 2nd biggest free block of time I have for improving my game, I hope to pick up some momentum and put myself in a good position going into the new year.Specific Goals:Final Table the $2.20 6-Max donkament,Final Table the 5k Guaranteed on Sunday,Win my first online tournament,Break Irish Top 10 in P5s Rankings,Sat-in and play atleast 2 100k's,Try and play atleast 4 live tournies, Build Roll enough to be able to comfortably play the next $4.40 challenge,

xposted from thread i started:I haven't figured my totals for November yet, but I had my first losing month since returning to the game.Much of this I blame myself for, but I also ran bad, which didn't help my hu tilt issues.I do know my poker goals though for Dec. Primarily they include not tilting when I'm playing hu cash games. I'm tired of costing myself 10s of thousands of dollars. I need to act more professional when I'm playing, and not just goof off.I have some leaks I believe that I also want to fix, and so I'm primarily going to play 2/4 HU and 3/6 6max. I'm really going to try and grind out a good month and just focus on playing well and really concentrate on my emotions when I'm playing. Money wise, whatever happens happens, but I know that if I control my emotions, results usually follow positively.I may go to Atlantic city here this first week, I'm not sure...but if I do, obvious goal is to win a donkament.Life goals: Well, month off school...I want to get in my application to do volunteer time at Children's Hospital. I've been wanting to do this for a while now, and I really am going to try and do it this month. It takes about 1 month to be accepted/trained, so we'll see. My girlfriend is going to Ethiopia in middle january, so I want to have a few other things to occupy my time while she is gone, including more volunteer time with things that are more important (in my eyes) than school or playing online poker. That being said, I really have no excuse to not do this.Secondly, I need to start preparing for my trip to Africa, which will be in June. I prob don't need to post this now, but I'm proposing to my gf either this month, or in january before she leaves. We've been talking about getting married in Africa the next summer, so here goes the plunge. Am I ready? Probably not, but I'm excited and she's the one I never thought I'd meet at the time I did.Anyways, that's that. Hope you guys did better than me in November and have success in December.Unless of course you play me, then you can die in a grease fire.:club:- Jordanoh, and december 1st...all evening into early morning lolololdec4.jpguh, things went swimmingly day 1...

After a blackjack incident, I went busto last month for the first time in 2 years.I redeposited $50 and hope to run that up to at least $150 this month. Playing SSNLHE, this should easily be achievable.edit: No more blackjack ever.
I ended the month at $530, and that's including the $150 loss yesterday! I'll be getting $115 in rakeback so my roll is up to about $650.Best of all, no BJ! I'm still kind of pissed about losing last night as it was the only day that I lost a meaningful amount. ----------------------------------------1. 15k hands of 25 and 50NL2. 50+ SNG's3. $600 profit4.

Absolute:--------$1250 ...(+72)Bodog:----------$770...(+229)Stars:-----------$391...(+291) small donkament score!!FullTilt:----------$0 --Used 1 $26 Token......4 left. Positive month at each of my sites, weeeeeeeeee!!! Spent most of my live bankroll on other things, since I don't play very often. Still got about $900 left, need to start playing a little more often. It's so annoying that poker rooms are illegal here. I can't wait to finish my apprenticeship and move to Vegas, where there is plenty of work in my field and plenty of donkeys to fleece on the weekends. About 18 months until I can make this happen. Feels like time is standing still.

November Goals:35k hands - 300 short, but with holidays and being sick the last 3 days, i'll take itMove up in VIP - Finished very quicklyMove up a level - Finished (NL 20-25 buy ins)nov07lo7.th.png*** Last day was horrible, but I'll take the month considering I had $80 in my account to begin with. With bonus and rakeback, November was good for $1800.December Goals: - 35k hands - Will be tough with the holidays, but moved some money onto UB (software so much faster than everyone else's, manage close to 100 hands/hr) - Move up a level - Move money around to have a bankroll on all sites - Put my T$109 I found in my bodog account to good use (Haven't touched this account in over a year, but earned enough points for a freeroll through PSO and found this sitting in my account when I logged in)

I made a bit more than 9k, after I get all my rakeback figures, etc.EDITED TO ADD: The official total was $9,061.38.November was easily my best month ever, as my previous best was $5774.For December, I'll be in Vegas for one week, and with all the Christmas celebrations, etc, I probably won't play as much as I should, but I hope to make about 5k, continuing to play HU LHE.
