1/ 20k hands minimum. Preferably 30k.2/ If I'm playing bad or tilting, leave the tables regardless of how good the games are.Nothing specific monetarywise, but I want to be:3/ Very comfortably rolled for $100pl by the middle of the month.4/ Well on the way to $200pl by the end of the month.It's ambitious, but I want to have a real drive for success.
Taking tomorrow into account, probably about 10k hands of NL and 7.5k hands of PLO. I got close.Unfortunately, I dropped 14 buyins in 1400 hands one day at PLO early in the month running about as bad as it's possible to run, and I actually quit PLO for the month in nearly a 20 buyin hole. I obviously was playing poorly for some of it, but try to spot where it all went horribly wrong:lollerskatesuz3.jpgSo, that, mixed in with a ton of coolers, is why I started playing NL again after 4 or 5 days off (random night out in Manchester turned into random long weekend).I played the FT million, and in the last ~275 with a top 60 stack, http://www.pokerhand.org/?1970430 happened, followed exactly 1 orbit later by http://www.pokerhand.org/?1970462So, I started playing 50nl and after a reasonable start I had an 8 buyin drop in allin luck which again, just pissed me off and put me pretty much right back to square 1 with NL. Since then I've fought back a bit.Overall with rakeback, bonuses and tournaments, it's likely to be a breakeven month, which I'm kinda relieved about given the start.====================================================================February:Going to be on holiday from the 3rd to the 17th, so it looks like February is going to be somewhat stunted. Anyway, I should have internet access for the second week, so I'll be playing a couple of the FTOPS events.1/ 10k hands. I should get this comfortably. I'll hate myself if I don't.2/ Be comfortably and permanently at 100nl by March.

Goals:Play less poker!Gonna just stick to what I've been playing and winning at and not move up unless I make a huge profit somewhere.Try to make $1k again this month, doubt I'll have the time as I'm back at university though.

January goals:-Play about 100 4.40s. 150 If possible.-Win at least 1%.-FT at least 7%.-Cash at least 20%.-Do well in the Goldstar freerolls. Go deep in at least 1 of these. At least 100$ Profit from the VIP Freerolls
Januari Results:Hm well things kinda changed around in Januari. I played a few 4.40s, but 10 at most I think. I only cashed in one, but i took that one down all the way so that was nice.I decided though 4.40s/tournaments were no good for BR building so I decided to focus on cash games and deposited 600$ on FTP, got PT, got PAHud and a CR subscription. Things have been going really well on FTP and I've played 25NL for the 2nd half of januari and I'm nearly ready to move up to 50NL. I could currently, but I'm still preparing some things and planning on taking a shot friday/saturday. Here's my graph for Januari:januarigraphqz2.th.jpgAdd to that 225$ from a 4.40 win, 90$ bonusses and 50$ rakeback so I'm up to 1375$ now.Februari Goals:-Make the move up to 50NL succesfully-Continue building my roll at 50NL to 2500$ at least.-Play 15k hands at 50NL.This should definately be possible. I'll have to run at about 7.5 ptBB/100, which should be piss easy with Bonus and Rakeback. I ran at over 10 ptBB/100 at 25NL so. Also 15k hands is really not a lot. I suspect I could get in 20k easily aswell, but I'm not setting the bar too high. I'll be happy if I reach these goals in februari.

JANUARY RESULTSBBJanuary.jpgI'm ignoring what I did at 6max because I should have never tried it. These are my January results of FR LHE after I finally settled down and found my niche.The good thing is that I was still able to do this after everything I've been through this month. I get back to Bakersfield from a holiday trip to Indy only to find my roommates kicking me out and telling me that I have 30 days to do it. I had planned on getting back and hitting the ground running with my poker game only to run into this bull rush. ****ers kicked me out to move in their own ****ing friend so I had to waste the first half of the month finding a new place for the same price or less and getting all my shit settled in.Now that I am in and ready to go (sexual innuendo?), here are myFEBRUARY GOALS1. 10k hands of FR LHE2. Don't force yourself to play when you're upset with yourself... even if you just started and you're playing bad.3. Play some tournaments on PS when you feel like a change of pace.4. Start back up playing live 3/6 and keeping track of my results on pokertracking.com. Use February as an establishing month to see how I'm doing and where I'm at. DO NOT LET YOURSELF GET AFFECTED BY 1 or 2 day RESULTS!What I hope this accomplishes? Following Rabid's 300bb/200bb bankroll strategy (it fits me well), I hope to reach 300bb of .25/.50 ($150) and be well on my way to 300bb of .50/1 ($300) with the assistance of the rakeback and bonus.Utilize the bankroll strategy for live play as well. 3/6 (1800 starting point), move down to 2/4 if you go under 1200 and move up to 6/12 if you reach 3600.I'll see you all at the end of the month :club:

For January I want to:1. 600 SNGs while keeping a minimum 75 buy-in rule. I am also hoping to have a 20%+ ROI.2. 1k in total profit. Hopefully closer to 1.5k.3. This month I should finally reach VIP. 4. Stay motivated. I make more money per hour playing poker than my job. So why the **** is it so hard for me to put in the hours at the poker table?5. Get to the gym at least 4 times a week. I've been sort of sick for a while lately and have been using that as an excuse, but starting tomorrow I want to go to the gym almost every day after work.
1. I only played 300, but I also played some cash games. I guess I'm happy with this. I also had a 19.5% ROI, which is pretty good. 2. Just under 1200 in profit.3. I Finally made VIP this month.4. I'm happy with the time I put in this month. 5. Nope. I don't like going to the gym alone, and my buddy who I go to the gym with worked a ton of overtime this month. -------------------------------------Feb. 1. 400 SNG's @ 15% ROI. 2. 5K hands of 25 or 50NL.3. 1k profit. I withdrew a huge chunk of my roll because I'm going to buy a car soon, so I want to get back over 2k. 4. Keep VIP.5. Again, the whole gym thing. It's getting closer to summer.

December was good. I haven't added everything up yet but roughly ~$5k month.Jan goals:- Play more hands then Rdog- Crush 200/400 PLO game on FTP- Learn PLO- Sweep the Sunday majors in the same weak- Eat lunch today- Have Sharks go undefeated- Do Jessica BealI know some of these might be harder to accomplish, so the one or two might spew into February.
Ok, didn't quite manage to accomplish all my goals in January, in fact I really only completed one to the end. A bit discouraging, but oh well, we'll get 'em next time.For February I am going to switch it up a bit.30,000 hands.5ptbb/100That's it. Lets do it, baby.

For January, I'm going to have my first 5-figure month. To ensure that this happens, I will be attempting to play a minimum of 500 hands/day, with the overall goal being between 15,000 and 20,000 hands. More if possible, but it's quite difficult to get 1k hands/day using good table selection at 5/10 HU LHE.Basically, for January, and all of 2008, I pledge to no longer be lazy, lol. Grind out the hands, and the money will come.
January ResultsTable Profit: $9,162.99Rakeback: $564.23Bonus: $1,255Points Value: $1,755.47Other*: ($428)Total: $12,309.69Hands Played: 10,989*Other includes referral rakeback, fees incurred during withdrawals, and the gain/loss of money based on the current exchange rate, since I hold some of my BR in $CAD, as well as some money lost when I took 10% of a friend's action in a soft 100/200 game.This is by far my best month ever, topping November's ~$9k win. I achieved half of my goal, which was to have my first 5-figure month, but I came up quite a bit short of my hands goal.To be fair, I found it a lot more difficult to get in hands while I was running well, simply because I'd bust my opponents in significantly fewer hands, and therefore I wouldn't have to play as long to win the same amount, lol. I certainly could have put in more hours tho, and I'll look to do that in February.Nearly 100% of my hands came from 5/10 HU LHE, with the exception of 4 hands (3 at 3/6 and 1 at 15/30). In both cases, I sat at the wrong limit by accident, and didn't notice until I played my first hand, lol.As shown in the PT stats image, I clearly ran super hot the entire month. It's tough to say with a lot of certainty, as I've only got 25k hands of HU LHE under my belt, but I think my long term winrate is probably closer to 5 BB/100, maybe 4 BB/100 a bit more conservatively, assuming I continue to practice very good game selection.Graphs:january2008sa6.jpgStats:january2008ptuc6.jpgFebruary Goals15,000 hands, $10,000 profit.I'm going to stick with 5/10 for a while, as I'm very comfortable there, and I can handle the quick, huge swings of HU LHE there there best, in terms of the amount of money. Also, this is the first time I've been overrolled for anything, and I'm really enjoying the extra comfort.I'm not rolled for 10/20 yet, anyways, but when the time comes, I don't really want to jump into it without being ready for double the amount of money going either way, so basically, the plan for February is to build up my roll (which means spend WAY less than I did in January) to the point that I'll be ready for 10/20 come March.Once again, best of luck to everyone in February!
