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)Posted Image*** 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.

If you can keep finding guys that open shove full buyins every few hands, I'd say so. :club:

I edited my official tally for November into my first post, but I'd like to add a new, more precise goal for December here.After November, my total profit for the year to date is $34,886.15.So, my goal for December is going to be pretty simple. I'm just going to try to make it to $40,000 for the year. I think that's a pretty solid income for a first year pro. It's definitely comparable, and probably better than anything I could have made, even with my degree, at this point.

My November goals were to play 300 turbo sitngos starting with 3.40s and moving up to 6.50s and profit 250. I ended up doing much better than that playing 322 3.40's winning just over 500 bucks. I decided not to move up because these are so soft and I love winning more than I need the money even though the 6.50s really should be about the same, meh.Onto December my goals are:350 turbo sitngos, 3.40 or 6.50 probably mainly the former, we'll see400 profit from sitngosTry to mix in some tourneys or small O8 cash games, maybe even the NL form since Jamie is showing how soft the games are even above my level.

November goal is to profit +600. I also want to keep working out on a regular basis.
after being +878 after the first two weeks of November I hit a rough patch that started with the tournament series on Thanksgiving weekend. I ended the month +248 and I've never been more disgusted with showing a profit. I'm misplaying a couple of hands but mostly not finding myself in those key situations. It's only 5 losing sessions in a row so its not too terrible and I've suffered worse but meh, its not fun either. I took a week break before the tournament series just so I could play well...that was time not well spent.I did make my goal of working out on a regular basis.I started an online bankroll this month and have been 3 tabling stud/stud hilow/.5 .10 nl so far I'm doing well.December Goals-profit 600 liveprofit anything onlinekeep working out on a regular basisget blufferdave to work out

I won the $15 I needed to move up to .25/.50 in only 1300 hands between last night and this morning. Actually, I played 1050 hands last night and won $1.29. This morning I ran like god for 238 hands and won $14.71 at .10/.20 on Stars, which is something sick like 31BB/100. I actually went on positive tilt from running too good and started worrying about losing some of it, but I recognized the potential mood swing and quit the game. I'll be back later in the evening to start playing .25/.50. Hopefully I can sniff out .50/1 by January, at which point I should really start playing on a site with rakeback and bonuses.

Once exams are over I'm getting down and dirty with poker this month. I had to withdraw a big portion of my roll to deal with real life crap so december I'm going to grind it out as much as I can with the (somewhat lofty) goal of reaching $1k (from my current $80) by the end of the month. I intend to devote a total of 120 hours over the month to building my bankroll split evenly between 10NL and STTs (Starting with $3.4s, moving up to $6.5s and $16s whenever I have over 30 buyins, and dropping back down whenever I drop below 30). 6-tabling, that means about 20k hands and 700 STTs. This should get me to around the $1000 mark easily, assuming I have the discipline to actually put in all of those hours (and don't waste too much of it on MTTs).
