Oh yeah, I strangled a hooker in my room at IP over a price dispute when I was in Vegas last week, good times.
Is this just a random joke or is there a story behind this? :club:

July goal:Not waste money with incredibly fun Vegas trips.Srsly though, I go home tomorrow, so I'll come back on Wednesday prolly with my goals.I ended up making $2k+ online over like 7k hands, which is just silly. I plan on grinding my nuts off once I get home, so I hope to make $5k or so playing 3/6 and 5/10.I'm also moving into my own (with my gf) apartment, so I'm finally accepting responsibility for paying rent, etc, which should make my life as a "professional" more stressful, demanding, etc.But it's all cool.I hate leaving Vegas, but I've been gone since Jan. 15th, so I'm happy to get back home with my GF and into the new apartment that I haven't even seen yet, lol.Btw, I'm stuck a ton in Vegas cuz live poker is rigged.
Bills suck.. I just moved in with my girlfriend three weeks ago and I've spent so much time and money on moving and getting settled. The positive? I can see the Borgata from my front step :club:

June goals;move up to at least 5c/10c end of the month and be close to moving to 10c/25c so a profit of $200 would be good.
close only played the first two weeks of June before my computer died and I had exams. Last time I checked pokertracker before it was gone, June was a ~+150 month, I was running at about 12-14 ptbb/100 at 2c/5c and about .1ptbb/100 at 5c/10c, can't remeber over how many hands but it was a couple of thousand.July goals:the other day while I had no online poker, I had an itch that needed to be scratched, so I headed to the casino to play. This is hugely -EV (nl 1/2, buyin of 80, 5 timecharge plus 10% of the pot upto $8) , but I had fun dammit and I'll go back :club: . Point of story; July's primary goal is to have fun with poker, as thats why I play, profit is bonus. Monetary goal, couple of hundred, and move up to nl25 at some point.

June goals were met and then passed.soo, since i cleared 3k the month of June, I'll try for that this month. Although I have a feeling I'll be busy with a lot of things "summer related".But lets go for 8k BR by end of july Just 14-15 weeks into the run.

June Results - Had 0.02 in Stars acct. Played one tourney - Used stakeament in $5 PLO8 tourney to win $13, split 50/50. Now have $6 in Stars acct. Profit 300x.July Goal - Have $6 in Stars acct. Using stakeaments found in general, or by the stroke of luck if a mystery backer comes to my rescue, increase THAT by 300x. C'mon, that's doable, isn't it??I should start a thread in general about my "quest" to turn 0.02 in to $1800 in two months, using only stakeaments..Could be the new superthread....LOL'z

June Goalsgoal number 1 is to make the WSOP trip profitable. Online, I think 10K hands for June is a good number to shoot for and I'd like to win 10 buyins over that period.
Achieved Goal 1. Goal 2 is a no go. I played 193 hands of poker in June at $10NL and lost $5.35. I just haven't had much desire to play/post since I got back from Vegas. July:I'll keep it simple. 5K hands at a profit this month and I'll be happy.

June resultsI travelled a lot in June, so I did not really play enough to get a good shot at my goals. Anyway, here are the results:
  • Get a positive ROI, at least for the month, but hopefully also "lifetime", though that expression feels like a bit of an overstatement. I started to practice 2-tabling SNG's a while ago (I'm mainly a small stakes SNG and MTT player) and my ROI has dropped quite a bit since then. However, I feel I'm slowly getting the hang of it, so I hope June will be the month where I turn the graph upwards.
Just failed - down about $60.
  • In May, I won my first $4 180-player SNG on Stars, which was quite an enjoyable experience. The main goal for June will be to keep performing well in those, say with 2 or 3 final tables.
Played only 9, did not make a final table.
  • I recently discovered the $3+R $10.000 guaranteed tournament on Stars, and enjoy playing that one a lot. Goal for June: to finish in the money in 25% of the ones I play.
Played only 8, but made the money twice, so this one gets a check mark.
  • Finish in the money in one of the Sunday tournaments here at the Paris casino. These are 80-player tournaments with the top 9 places payed; so far I've played 2 and come in 17th and 39th place. Well, I'll probably have only one chance to play in one of those in June, so this one is more like a "summer goal".
Played one, as expected. Lost two races with AK and was out before the end of level 2.
  • Start lurking around a bit less, and posting on this forum a bit more. Let's see if I can get my enormous number of 5 posts up to 15.
Failed...July goalsI'll be traveling a lot in July (and, for that matter, August) as well, so for next month I'll keep my goals unchanged.

Never done one of these but looks like fun.July Goals
  • Winning trip to Vegas - will be there for 4 days playing mostly 1/2 NL. I'd like to profit $500 or better to cover the cost of the trip
  • Profit $400 at NL $50 six max - need $600 profit to make me a lifetime winning player but don't know that I can erase all that this month
  • Profit $300 at SH LHE 1/2 and move up to 2/4 if the bankroll allows
  • Play on average 2 hours a day but play without also reading forums/email/watching videos/etc. My biggest leak is not paying attention to the table.
  • Spend more time in strategy and less time in general. :club:

July Goals:1/ Get cash out of Mansion and into FullTilt2/ Play some goddamn poker for once. At least 15k hands.I don't know what to play though. Here are my options as I see them:MTT's9man SnGs6man SnGsHU SnGs6max NLHEHU NLHE6max LHE6max PLOHU PLOI like the idea of HU NLHE/PLO cash games, but I can multitable better if I'm playing full ring or 6max. MTT's are high variance so I think I'll keep those to one side and play them sporadically, and I think NLHE/PLO are better than LHE for me. Other than that, I'm clueless. Should I just mix and match whatever I feel like playing at any one time?

I think what I really need right now is to just get on a staking plan that's contingent on me not playing with <20 BI and then stick with that. Lately, whenever I put my own money online, I get up to about 8-10x my deposit within a week or two, but I keep using bad BR management and blowing it. Guess that kind of goes along with trying to correctly manage a bankroll down around $1,000 knowing I used to have close to 100x that. I know I got some offers a month or so ago and ended up turning them down, so if anyone's still interested, I think this would be a good time. In 5,000 hands on Full Tilt the last 2 months, I'm running at 19.38 PT BB/100 and probably similar numbers on Bodog where PTO's incompatible. Probably, at least $1,000 would be best so I can play 0.25/0.50 with a real bankroll off the bat, but I'll listen to any offers via PM.

Seeing people playing comfortably with 20 BI's makes me feel like a scared little girl. I feel bad and move down if i drop below 60.

Well, it's not ideal. If I was robusto enough to play 5/10 again and didn't want to let myself have any chance of going broke, I'd probably want something more like 40 BI. Maybe 50 BI to play 10/20. In the meantime though, all I'm shooting for is like a 10% ROR.
