Gen Poker's Goals For '09


Recommended Posts

Poker Goals:1. FT an MTT for a 4-figure cash. Not a $4.40. Any MTT w/ >1000 people in it. If anything, I want this primarily to show that I haven't been spending all this time not improving at the game that I love to play. 2. Develop a cash game/sng bankroll that will allow me to play at $10 sng and $50 max 6-max cash games.Non-poker:1. When not playing poker, focus on finishing out college strong, getting good contacts in my field and hopefully having a job available for me post-graduation. 2. Start playing roller hockey again (I never played organized ice hockey, stfu) to get into good shape. 3. Become more self-aware and responsible financially. This was never really related to poker, I never gambled what I couldn't afford to lose, but I emptied my bank account in support of other vices.GL in 2009 everyone!

Ho-leee-shiiiit!I don't venture into the LHE Challenge much really, but those limits/income is insane for your age! :club:
Don't be impressed yet; I haven't accomplished that stuff. At this point, I'm relatively certain I'm a winner in the 50/100 games and I posted my less than impressive (compared to the real FCP ballers) results in the 08 results thread. You should make it a point to stop by the LHE challenge thread though- some pretty great minds post there.

volume. my volume sucks. i need to try to play at least 25 hours a week averaging a little over 2 tables at a time.by the end of the year i want a car and an apartment(buy not rent). if i played even this much i could easily have that. its funny looking back at the last year. im really starting to fall into a good groove here and its probably the least poker ive ever played.for personal goals i want to continue perusing my bachelors degree. i have not put enough effort into this either and have had to drop 3 classes so far. its online for crying out loud there is really no excuse for this. i guess i should just make the goal "stop being a lazy waste of space" and run with it. im 26.

Too much changes in my poker games to predict for a whole year.minimum yearly goal (i'd like to do more though!):- play on average 2 hrs a day on my most profitable game. (currently: 8tabling 10$ DoN's)- spend on average one extra hour a day on poker. (testing new games, improving skill, ... )- improve online roll from $900 to $10.000 (if I play 2 hrs a day on my best game that should be no problem)- Earn at least one ticket for the Battle of the Planets monthly 50k freeroll- get a 4 digit cash in a MTT (current best is winning a 4.4 for $216)Januari:- Build roll from $900 to $1500- get top 50 of Low and High Orbit Microstakes SnG (Mercury: 1.75$ 18 man turbo's) ... currently tied for an 8th place in the low orbit one after playing only 40 games- First attempts at Mars turbo SnG: $3.25 6 man and $3.4 10/18 man to test which gives me best profit.- go from 8 tabling $10 DoN's to 10 tabling- First attempts at $20 Double or Nothing'sFebruari and other months: depends on if I made my goals of the previous month and how the tests of new games went.Ooh and one other very ambitious goal:- get to the point where my screenname "Weandago" can be seen by FCP-ers without everyone going: WTF!! Wendigo?? :club:
