My August goal will be the same for the rest of the year I think.Play only PLO8 and stud8, and get as much in as I can.Monetary goal not being set but maybe 5K per month or so.
FCP is a trollfest. If ya can't beat 'em, join 'em!!!!

July : My only goal was to move up to 2/4 successfully, right now I've played 4k hands and it's gone ok, up about 3 BIs.August:Starting Bankrolls:FTP - $2900Stars - $11900- 10k hands at 2/4 (Will be tough considering I will be dropping down to 1/2 if my online roll drops under 10k)- Profit in the 2 TS Donkaments I will be playing in August- Profit in the live cash games at TS- Have 25k to my name before school starts (I have about 16.5k total)
Goodbye FCP.

July results
  • 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 tripNice thought but it was a combo of 2 days of bad play followed by 2 days of running bad. Lost 1200 at 1/2 NL. Competition at MGM was MUCH tougher than in the past but still should have been beatable.
  • 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 monthI'm allowed to ignore massive tilt spewing sessions right? Without two horrid tilt days I made a decent profit. With the two horrid tilt days I ended down about 160. Also played some .5/1 NL and booked a tiny profit of 40 over about 1,100 hands. I don't quite have the roll for 100 NL and made a few scared plays. Overall I enjoyed it more than the 50 NL but I need to get my roll up more and become a lifetime winning player at 50 NL before I move up.
  • Profit $300 at SH LHE 1/2 and move up to 2/4 if the bankroll allows+180 at 1/2 on 2K hands. Didn't move to 2/4 at all.
  • 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.I'm still playing more hours with less concentration. I find it easier to concentrate when I'm playing higher. Generally playing one table. Still something to work on.
  • Spend more time in strategy and less time in general. smile.gifSpent a bit more time in strat but still need to keep moving in this direction.
August goals:I'm planning to play 0 online hands (after this weeK) due to 2 long trips and some much neglected work. I'm planning 1 trip to AC to play some 1/2 live where the goal is +$200 or better and I'll play a couple sessions at the home game where the goal is always break even. Tonight is a new crowd at the home game that plays much higher (.25/.50) and apparently plays pretty wild so we'll see how that goes.

July goals : play 10k hands at 25NL 6-max on absolute with bonus and rakeback.July was looking good. At 7.5k hands with 3 days to go I was up 8 buy-ins and then I go on a 9.5-buy-in downswing in the last 3 days to 9.5k hands. OMFGJKHKJKJI!!!!. :club: :D Cleared $65 dollars of bonus and $55 in rakeback so still up for the month but still a bit pissed off.August goals:I've only cleared $65 of a $500 bonus and it expires in 30 days. At this rate I'll have to play 70k hands in 30 days to clear it all. The rake just isn't going high enough at 25NL to get the points. I don't want to move up the limits just to hit the rake more often as I think this would be -ev.So i'm going to try and get 4hrs a day in 4 tabling 25NL 6-max this should get me too about 30k hands an just try to clear as much bonus as possible before it expires.Just try to play each hand as well as I can and not worry too much about the cash. I'm running at 18.35/6.9/1.09 over the last 9.5k hands so i'm playing pretty tight.GL everyone.

Well, I haven't got much poker in yet, but I learned a ton of really good life lessons last night and this time they didn't cost me a dime! I may or may not go into detail later when I'm less sleepy, but thanks to one of the less important ones, I have no plans to play another hand of blackjack again in my life and if I do, it sure as **** won't be on my next trip to Bellagio. I have no edge whatsoever counting cards.

I'm glad to see July go... So far the biggest losing month i have ever had. down approx. 2200 bucksThe big downswing happened when i decided that maybe the best way to play 200nl fr is to open up my game a bit because everyone seems so much like nits. well i opened up all right a little too much and was unfamiliar with a LAGgy style so i was in unfamiliar territory. Felt like a ran bad and half way through i started to get tilty.... one day down 6 buy ins.... in 200NL so 1200 bucks, biggest losing day to date and it wasn't good. I decided LAG isn't my style and to stick to what i know i will just have to be more patient than anyone else. My br was crippled where i felt i couldnt play 200 nl anymore so i went down to the 100 tables with one 200.... felt like i played great maybe some mistakes but for the most part fine.... won half a buy in in 200nl ended the session down 500 though... it sucked...So now i am super frustrated and just trying to do my best, i am playing 100nl fr for the most part and some 6 max, my br is definately hurting but still sizable... been playing more tournies the past 5 days just so i am risking less money in a day... i am still running horrible though. monday i was knocked out in the early stages of the 20k on PS when there were 6 limpers i am bb with AA i raise big everyone folds except last person who pushes.... he has 77 he gets straight... monday was a bunch of those i put my money in good they suck out.... what can u do. right now i am ok with it. i know i just need to wait out this downswing and concentrate on playing good.Aug. goals:rebuild my roll back up to 20 buy-ins for 200NL fr start playing that again and destroy it.FT some big tournies such as the 20kSat. into the millions and play it at least one weekwork on my rebuy tourny strat.

I had a good July in my books, up about $3k including splitting a tourney win.In August I'll be playing with a $500 bank roll, so I hope to get that up to around $1500 - I don't have time to play as much as I'd like so that's a good goal for me.

I'm kinda curious...I mean, if losing your roll wouldn't have taught you this, what did?Seriously, I'm interested...and I hope you do well out there and get your roll back.- Jordan

Well I am completely demoralized after my July. I started the month with 15k in roll playing 3/6nl. I finished yesterday after no cashouts with 5600 and playing 1/2nl. I am getting 5k from neteller though, so at least I've got that going for me.My August goals are ambitious, but good lord I'm due for a heater. I'm done working after next week, and don't start school till the middle of August, so I'll have lots of time at the tables both live and online.Online: Get my bodog account back to pre-july levels so that I can start playing 3/6nl again once I get back to school. So +approx 10k on bodog.Get my FTP account from 500-3k, and pay back my buddy who shipped me 2k there so I don't have to use currency to pay him back. Not that I can't, just that it upsets me...Live: I haver very little live experience since I just turned 21, and would like to gain some. I'm going to withdraw 5k from the bank and try to double it.summary: +10k on bodog +2.5k on FTP +5k live --------------------- +17.5k for the monthAgain, very ambitious, but I know it's doable if I play 50k hands, focus, run decent, and most importantly, don't tilt.
I like you, do you like me?

August Goals
  • Take over #1 online MTT player in Alabama not just on the Monthly board but also the Sliding board.
  • Stick to MTTs and STTs until I get my BR back up over $20k.
July Goals/Results
  • Be ranked #1 MTT player in Alabama.I had the lead in this pretty early, fell back to second for a little while, and then recaptured it with about a week to go. Unfortunately, some jackass passed me by stringing together several +$2k scores in the last few days of the month to hop ahead of me. I think I may have barely passed him last night with time counting down on the month, but it'll take a few days to see if the results will be counted.
  • Have a profitable month while figuring out what the hell I'm doing wrong in cash games.Profitable month eventually got downgraded to "avoiding my worst month ever". I continued to run kind of bad in cash games. On the month, I was down $13.5k in them. I'm still not clear why that's happening, so I mostly steered clear of them (particularly SHNL) for the last part of the month. I'm somewhat resigned to being a tournament donk for a while...I'm just too profitable there lately for me to avoid it. I made $8k in them in July.
Breaking down the tournament numbers...98 MTTs, $9664 in buyins, $16188 in payout, $6524 in profit, 67.5% ROI35 STTs, $3167 in buyins, $4680 in payout, $1513 in profit, 47.7% ROI

July Goals: Pretty much had to change my focus mid month, with AP adding their stupid BBJ tables I had to take my money off. While waiting for the check I decided to put $300 on pokerstars and start learning to play MTT's more. Mainly started out in the 4.40's, for those I had two wins and three other FT's. I also played a few bigger tourneys including one of the $11 15k gurantees, placed in 6th for about 1300. Only played about 3k hands of cash games and pretty much broke even. Current BR 1800August goals-Win one of the $11 180's and FT a few more, mainly looking to place in top 3. Finish in the top 50 of the $11 100k sundays on stars. Play 15k hands of cash games. Have a working bankroll of 2800.BTW I cannot figure out a way to get my PS tourney summaries to load onto Pokertracker, I use hotmail and I can't import them directly from the mail server and when I save the files on my computer pokertracker still won't pick it up, anyone can just PM me if you know how to fix this.
