Didn't get to play until the last week of June. Was down almost 3k at one point, but got to just over +2k by the end.July goals are to play a lot and play well.

Well, July got off to a fun start (finally).Posted ImageMostly 3/6 on AP. A bit of 5/10.Tonight is the first night I'm relatively settled into my new place.This is the first time really for me moving, and this is my first real "own" place kinda deal, so there's waaaaaay more work involved in this than I'd hoped, lol.I'm not sure I ever formally stated my goals or results from June yet, so I'll do this now.Although I've got a retarded amount of **** to do, I'd still like to play 25-40k hands in July. I figured if I play ~40k, I should make enough for the $3000 ARP bonus (reaching 200k ARPs), as I seem to be making ~3 ARPs/hand, so I hope to get that nice boost next month. If I get 40k hands in July, it'll be the hardest working month of my life, lol. Gonna aim for it though. It'll be tough though.I don't have a monetary goal. I just want to win. Maintaining the ~1 BB/100 winrate that I have in my DB is a good goal. I'm out of bonus on AP, but I've got some cash in Click2Pay waiting for another bonus so I can get back on that. The bonus is worth so much/hand now, I need to get on that ASAP, and then pull out money again for the next one. I don't imagine I'll be able to keep the bonus account off of zero for long, as it clears so damn fast now.Anywho. My June totals were +$2053.99 online, and I played less than 7k hands (LOL) due to my travelling. This doesn't include any live poker, where I got owned, naturally.So, I'm going to bed.Gl all.

June Goals
  • Be ranked #1 MTT player in Alabama.
  • Have a profitable month while figuring out what the hell I'm doing wrong in cash games.
May Goals/Results
  • Play profitable cash games throughout Vegas.I think I was actually slightly profitable in live cash games. However, I did pretty horribly online.
  • Play some tournaments at Rio/Bellagio/Venetian.Played some. Didn't cash, though I'm relatively satisfied with my play.
  • Play some satellites to the WSOP ME.Played one supersatellite to the ME. Had the chip lead with 50 left...finished in 16th with 8 seats paying.
Last month I started in a 10k hole and managed to climb out of it by stringing together a bunch of big MTT finishes. This month, I started out +$2k through MTTs. I then proceeded to have a meltdown session ($-7k) last night playing mostly 5/10 SHNL and 20/40 SHLHE. I mean, I think I ran pretty poorly with getting cracked and missing big draws in big pots, but I'm really not thrilled about this at all. I'm feeling like just a tournament specialist at the moment. All that said, I'm going to start my job this month which involves a good bit of travel, so that may cut back on the poker.

July Goals-> Establish a self-sufficient online bankroll playing 1/2 NLHE (6 max)I deposited $500 on July 1st for this goal... Don't worry, I know that this is *ridiculously* too small to play 1/2, but that is only my *online* roll and it is only a fraction of my total bankroll. If I go bust and have to redeposit, so be it (but I will do my best to avoid this possibility). So far, I've built it to $2300 without redepositing :club: -> Play at least 10k hands at 1/2 and build a roll to at least $6000 online (20 buyins at 1/2 NLHE + 5 buyins at 2/4)If I reach *both* goals, then I take a 5 buyin shot at 2/4 NLHE-> In general, stick to the following step-up rule: (1) Play at least 10k hands at a given level showing a positive ROI of at least 3 PTBB/100 (2) Build up an online roll of 20 buyins at my current level, plus a further 5 buyins at the next level. (3) Once (1) and (2) are accomplished, take a 5 buyin shot at the next level

Sitting at -$9.6k on the month so far...so that's going to be a fun hole to dig out of...particularly since I'll probably be dropping back to 2/3 NL for a while.

question to everyone:When you play fulltime and have goals like these, do you also set other goals within the goal? perhaps trying to win xxx a week? or maybe xxx amount of dollars per x number of sessions?i'm asking because i find I have an easier time with accepting a losing session when i do my goals on a weekly basis.

Royal. I do it based on hands and I find that to be the most satisfactory. I believe I'm a 1-2bb winner so for me I just focus on putting in the hands. Focusing on the money makes me play a lot worse. The swings do affect me but in the end I remind myself about the long run. Hope that helps.

Been a rough first week...hopefully, for as bad as I ran thru these 13k hands, I run equally sick, on the good end, the next 13k and rest of the month.Posted Image- Jordan
