Weeeee. Just finished my last session of SNG's for the month


October Goals:Continue to 12-table $6 sngs and play 72 per day - Failed, averaged around 35 a dayPlay the 100k on Stars every Sunday - Failed, I dont think I played at allEarn GoldStar on PS - Failed, 1150VPP shortProfit Goal: $1500 - Failed, achieved 2/3
Posted ImageSo I failed all of my goals lol, but it was still my best month(by faaar) to date and Im proud of what I did. I realized that playing 72 SNGs a day, while not unrealistic, took a ton of discipline, and I just didnt have it in me to keep it up.Total SNGs played: 948SNG Profit: +$960.10MTT Profit: $0Total Profit: +$960.10Current Bankroll: $2625Averaged just a little over $1 per game, which was my goal(although I didnt put it down as one) so Im happy with how I played. November Goals:12-table $6 SNGs, play 48 a daySustain my 15% ROIEarn GoldStar(im gonna do it this time :club:)Possibly move up to $16's when I hit $3kProfit Goal: $1500If I dont match my goal Im gonna be really mad at myself, Ive had this goal for the past 2 months and have been too lazy to put in the time to reach it. Gl in November guys.

Goals for October were to play over 15,000 hands of NL 6 max games, maintain a winrate of +5ptbb/100, take a shot at 50nl, and final table a MTT. All were successful.Played over 20,000 hands in October.My winrate is 5.11/100.Played about 2,500 hands at 50nl and I am winning at that level as well.Final tabled the FT $3r. Nearly made the final table the next night in the same tourny.No goals for November. I'll be on deployment.

My goal for this month is very simple and general: get back on my feet pokerwise.Which means being able to play the stakes I was at comfortably and on an everyday basis.
I met that goal and was able to get on my feet pretty fast. My bankroll isn't what it was at before but it's a lot better and I think I'll top my old bankroll high this month.October +643I started late in October too so I'm happy with my results given the limits I play.November goal is to profit +600. I also want to keep working out on a regular basis.

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 month 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)

new goal.dont tilt.i prob would have won 20k+ last month had i not tilted. Def at least 15k.Instead I shipped 4.6k, and ran above expectation for the most part.Man, I suck at poker.Not setting a hand, or dollar goal. Just want to never tilt. Or, at least when I'm starting to tilt, get off the fooking computer.Posted Image+3.6k from high stakes.- Jordan

Seeing that I joined at the end of October, and for the entirety of October I was unable to redeposit and get back into the thick of things, I had really no goal.Convinently, my deposit should be complete and verifed as of later today, the first of November (lucky me!)I'm going to set some lofty goals this month, as I don't want to shoot too high..I want to achieve what I'm aiming for..anything extra is a nice bonusStarting Roll: $500Goals: 1. Don't go broke! Stay within my roll.Already once in the past I found myself playing better and better, and growing into a better player before I imploded by a few horrendus beats and went on massive tilt. Not good. I ended up playing limits far out of my roll, not to mention a bit sloppy, and self destructed soon after. Since then, I've read up alot on Poker, and believe I have a MUCH better grip.BR managment will really be a key to my success this month.2. Test the waters-- Play a few K hands at 10NL, then check my winrateI want to be aware I have self control, so I want to get in a few thousand hands at the cheap BI and see if I don't end up ahead. If I somehow do not, I really need to re-evaluate my play. 3. Play SnG's and MTT's appropriately.In the past, I've been known to play out of my limit as far as tournaments are concerned as well. Mostly I'm known to play alot of satelites. I've yet to win one. See the problem? I don't doubt I'll play one or two, on occasion, but I don't want to overdo it...and if I'm failing, I'll probably freeze myself out to prevent a breakdown and sat-rush.4. DO NOT!!!!! play a SnG HU game.I do NOT run good in these, yet I find myself playing them nonetheless. They are in no way helpful to me, and my longterm goals. I might sit HU on a cash game table at micro limits, but only if it's appropriate, and I know the other player is weak >.>Hopeful Start Roll for December: 1,000I know I may be expecting a bit too much of myself based on the limitations I'm placing, but I do believe I can make a profit playing with my style and convictions. If I don't reach my money goal it won't be a serious setback or anything. As long as I'm not broke at the end of the month, I've done good.
That pie is CLEARLY scrumptious, and it's full of Stake's! WOW!

Considering comeback!

i've never posted in one of these, but i was thinking that setting real goals for myself might actually be a good thing for me, so here goes:i don't want to play a single MTT other than ftops or the drunken horse neg-os. not one, not even for fun.by wasting less time on tourneys, i should be able to hit five figures if i really concentrate on the money machine game i hate with a passion (but unfortunately, the game i can multitable without any loss in winrate), NLO8. i also quit smoking weed for a month, so i should be able to play one more session every day with full concentration. i also don't have to drop 400 bucks on drugs, lol.i hope to actually force myself to play more than 200 hands a day, which is really all i've done lately.non-money-related goals mostly surround game selection, something i've largely been ignoring too much lately. fortunately, the nlo8 games are usually so soft at all hours that i won't really have to work on this at all consciously till next month.i'll also be able to save the nearly-1k i've been dropping per month on golfing shit, so that should be good, too.i'm also lazy, so i sincerely doubt that i'll be updating anyone on my progress :club:.gl everyone!oh, and i actually have goals related to my students, as well--i'd like to see all of em become solid winners at the 5/10-range in two new games this month.

October GoalsSo at the advice of Jordan I've been tweaking on my game. So this month I'm sticking for two tabling for a while and really concentrating. I might add another table or two if I'm getting very comfortable and playing/running well. So less hands this month, maybe only 15k hands. However I do want to maintain Gold Star status. No Monetary goal but I want a decent winrate by the end of the month, at least 5ptbb/100 at nl50, so thats $750 which I think is extremely doable. I won't be taking any shots at nl100 until I have at least 35 buyins for it, so $3500 in the bankroll, so I most probably won't take any shots this month. There are no Omaha goals this month.
October ResultsEh, bad month. I played more hands than were planned, and did maintain Gold Star, but didn't actually do that well at poker. Posted ImagePosted ImageLost about $50 in tourneys and about $40 live so the month was almost entirely breakeven. I'm just disgusted at the 6max results, I just played awful, I spewed and I tilted. I started playing more tables again towards the end and was mostly comfortable but still didn't win. HU play was a good little experiment though. 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

I think i'll jump back in to this threadI've run really solid the last few months. In October I played 24K hands of 0.5/1 NL on stars. Ran at 4.8 PTBB and had a nice steady month overall. I made platinum star for the first time. I didn't cash in 2 sunday mils although I came close in one and bad beat for top 50 stack in the 3rd hr in the other. I have sat'd in or bought in with FPPs. My sng play is overall very minimal i may mix a 180 man in with 6 cash tables. No big scores at all.Novemeber:1. Continue to 6 table 0.5/1 NL and maintain a solid win rate2. Cash in the Sunday Mil3. Get PT (zach says i need it)4. Continue to slowly mix in PLO and HORSE tables5. Play less random MTTs which cost me around $300 in October cause I'm not really "into" them6. Maintain Platimum star status7. Finish the month with a 4.5K BR for 1/2 NL
Give me a paper and pen so I can write about my life of sin. A couple bottles of gin in case I don't get in.

Posted me results of October in that thread;My month went terrible; not that I lost any money of myself. Played freerolls got a bit of a BR and lost all to badbeats. That process was repeated 5 times. Everytime I got up to between $20-30 I lost it due to a bad beat.Same goal for November I guess; Make a BR out of freerolls.And yes, Zach after a while I wasn't within my limits but that's basically cause I ain't got no BR.

not gonna bother with my october goals as I took a bunch of time off and readjusted a few things.so here are my goals for november:24-30K handskeep my sessions to 3 1/2 hours max, but really try to keep them between 2-3 hours. I've noticed that my focus starts to wane once I start to hit the 3 hour markI'm gonna keep it simple to both of those, as if I keep to them, I should be able to make between 3-6K this month and keep platinum status at stars and be able to make it easy for me to finally hit nova in december. o, I'll add that I want to bring in 500-700 in rakeback since I didn't play at FT at all this past month
