September Goals:-Continue to play 32 $16 sngs per day half-check..lol-Once BR is over $2000, add on more tables(atm im only 4-tabling) started 12 tabling $6 sngs-Play in a WCOOP event(Im going to try and sat in, hopefully it'll work out) never tried-Play the occasional MTT(but once again they'll take a backseat to sngs until my roll is healthy) didnt play one until the 100k today, busted 889th for $56Profit Goal: $1500 well short
Posted ImageMy graph for sngs for the last month(I dont think it's entirely accurate). So I started off really well at the $16 sng level and then I plummeted and started to break even. I decided I wanted to 12 table so I dropped back down to $6 sngs and have been doing that from September 20th till today.Total SNGS played: 772SNG Profit: +$452.10MTT Profit: +$43.26Total Profit: +$495.36So I didnt reach my goal but Im fine with that since my 1st half of the month was awful.October Goals:Continue to 12-table $6 sngs and play 72 per dayPlay the 100k on Stars every SundayEarn GoldStar on PS(Was 900VPP short this month)Profit Goal: $1500Once again setting my profit goal at $1500 which I know I can achieve if I run average. (if everything goes well I should profit over 2k but I wont set my goal that high)

Well after losing almost all of my bankroll at the Heartland Poker Tour through satellites/qualifiers/cash games I've taken the last two weeks off to try to get things straightened out. 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.

September-"I want to get in over 20K hands, make over 30K, and play more 6 max NL besides my heads up binges. And at some point, learn how to play PL Omaha starting at 10 cent 25 cent, although that realistically probably won't happen. If i hit a massive downswing and it doesn't let up, then I'll try to learn Omaha."-Played 15K hands-Won over 41K-**** PL OMAHASo i met 1 of 3 goals last month. This month I want to get in at least 10K hands, not go on a bad downswing, play the 100+9 DS 6 max tournament at least 5 times, and get with a MILF.

/sigh, I'm just glad that september is over. Really bad month for me, was down ~1400 after rakeback and almost 1900 listed in PT in a bit over 20K handshere were my sept goalsmy roll is still around 8K, but I'm about to withdraw 2K so I can afford my drinking, so essentially my roll is gonna be at 6K, I want to get my roll up to 9K ha, was at ~4300 before I had to withdraw 1500 tonight , so right now it's at 2800, but I'm going to have around 1250 coming through with rakeback+bonus, so I'm right around 4K right nowand play 25-32K hands. not gonna set a winrate or anything like that, but 3K with rakeback+bonii+winnings is doable...........I hopeeh, got slightly over 20K, so I missed my low goal, and as we know I didn't make 3Kso here are my october goals: *play between 25-32K hands *make 3K in winnings *drop down to 3/6 until I get my roll over 7K and stay there *end sessions when I feel like I may be making dumb mistakesI just want to have fun this month and get my shit done that I need to get done and make sure that i do well on my midterms and get everything in order to get myself into depaul for Jan. Also I want to kick back big time and enjoy the bordeaux tasting that I'll be doing later in the month

Here is how my goals ended upGoals for SeptemberAbsolute: Bring my BR up to $1600 (getting $47 in RB)BR at end of Aug: $1266BR Currently: $1201 (-$65) Stars: Bring BR up to $750 stay a silver star, final table 2 MTTsBR at end of Aug: $589BR currently: $617 (+$28)Full Tilt: Bring BR up to $650BR at end of Aug: $446BR currently: $937 (+491)Overall Goal: Profit $652Profit $454Other goals: play some LHE 2/4 and lots of FR, 6max 1/2... Learn basic PLO strat, finish SSHE, experiment with NLHE again, and don't let poker get in the way of school.Here's what I did:Played a few sessions of 2/4 and lost a few hundred... haven't been back since. Played some PLO, NLHE, and HORSE and will probably continue doing that. I'm trying to make sure poker doesn't get in the way of school but it's hard like right now to write my paper when I'm railing people in this tournament..I'll post my goals tomorrow.I am also working on bonus whoring on Absolute especially with their reload bonuses, thanks Zach.

September Results:My return to poker has been a good one so far. Starting BR was about $30, I'm now sitting at $280. My SnG results for Sept have been great, I haven't checked the numbers yet but the majority of my winnings has come from SnG's.Oct Goals:Continue to play mostly SnG's, play some cash games and throw in the odd MTT. Monetary goal: I'd like to get up to $500 by the end of the month.Good luck everyone.

Goals:15,000 hands at the nl 6max tables. Mostly at 25nl, with a shot at 50nl if I'm running good. Maintain a winrate of +5ptbb/100 or better.Final table a MTT tourny. This might be difficult, as I only plan to play maybe 10-15 of these at the most.

So I made a bit more than $1200 in September, which is pretty good for an awful month. Made enough to pay most of my bills. :)For October, I want to play 25-30k hands of NL, and win $5k.

Started September with $200ish dollars not exactly sure how much and yesterday I cleared $1600 so things are going well. I am dominating cash games again, hopefully soon we will be back up to $100NL looking to get to 3k by Halloween.In the past I have tried to play just one type of poker and focus on it for the month, I have found that I am not capable of doing this I need to mix it up. So I am going to shoot for 50 turbo SNG's of various size tables, and 10k hands of NL holdemwith some stud and omaha sprinkled in.

Oct. is going to be a rebuilding month for me as i went busto :club: at the end of Sept. I was trying to get a few $$ online but couldnt find a way to deposit on stars which sucked. Anyways i ended up using my FPP to play a sat. to the million and won a seat, so now im using the T$ to grind up a roll playing SNGs. It def. sucks going from playing 9 $16 SNGs at a time to playing 4 $6 SNGs at a time but i guess thats what you gotta do sometimes. My plan is to play enough SNGs to get my roll back to 400 and then ill start 6 tabling $6 SNGs. Once i get to $600 ill start 9 tabling. Hopefully it wont take me to long to get to a grand from there at which point ill start to mix in some $16 SNGs. I dont plan on jumping back into the $16s until i have at least 1500 in my account which i hope is possible around the end of this month. Im also going to try and keep a daily blog of my progress going to motivate me to play/blog everyday.Summary: make $1500 and play at least 600 SNGs this month
