Nah, remember when you looked for me on that Saturday night? There's next to no traffic on AP for PLO.

Yeah, vaguely.I swear there was action at one point though, cuz I had no problem finding tables when I wanted to play it.

Absolute:.........$966....(-284) ....(Dished out some transfers to friends AND played horrible!!! :club: )Bodog:............$951....(+181)Stars:.............$420.....(+29)FullTilt:............$33........RAKEBACK from Bodog....... Burnt through all my $26 Tokens with no results. :D Never ran soooo bad at AP, it was quite a shock. Bodog $25 tables (NLHE and PLO8) have never seemed softer. When the roll hits $1K I may start incorporating 1 $50 PLO8 table to see how things are. Which of course means I'm due for a huge downswing. :D

VIP on AP is like 5,000 points... I did 820.80 today, in less than 300 hands of 5/10 HU LHE.The real money comes when you reach Elite (40k VIP points).
For the month or lifetime total?? I think I have ~30K VIP points at AP. (total) I've never used my points there. Still not sure how all that stuff works. Just focusing on not losing takes enough outta me!! :icon_biggrin:EDIT: Just checked, I have 23K VIP's, 31K ARP's

You would have just made Platinum VIP at 20,000 VIP points. You now get 2x ARPs, so for each VIP, you get 2 ARPs.If you want to make money from this, wait until you get to Elite, and you can trade in your VIP points (min of 50k) for 1.5 cents/pt, just by contacting the VIP email. You can do it at Platinum, and all other levels as well, but you get a worse exchange rate. Still 50k min though.But yeah, it's 40k lifetime. There are some standards to maintain them though. For Platinum, I think it's 5k VIPs/month. For Elite, it is 10k VIPs. They give you one month, but if you miss it twice, they drop you down until you get 10k in another month (or 5k, or whatever level you were).

off to a good start up roughly 800 in the first day....I put a cashout in for 900 b/c i am nowhere near ready for 3/6 or 5/10. Gonnna leave myself plenty of BB for 2/4 limit for a while so that i can improve my game before I try to make a bunch more money. goal is to make 1k more before the end of the month at purely 2/4 limit. I should need less than 15k hands, but I want to get that at minimum.
there hsouldn't be a big jump between 3/6 and 2/4. Just hit up 3/6 cuz the rake at 2/4 is killer

I started an online bankroll this month and have been 3 tabling stud/stud hilow/.5 .10 nl so far I'm doing well.December Goals-profit 600 liveprofit anything onlinekeep working out on a regular basisget blufferdave to work out
Missed my live goal. I made +374. Had 10winning sessions 5 losing ones for 15 sessions total throughout December. Not too bad since the holidays kept me busy. I was also sick for a few days and wasn't able to play.Barely missed the second goal. I was up 30BB two days ago but now I'm down 20bb. Pretty much nothing though compared to earlier in the month. At the beginning of December I started to play a lot of MTT's and they were a little too big for my BR. Then I started to only grind the .5/1 horse game and it shot up real quick. Half way failed work out goal. I worked out until I got sick and after that work got extremely busy. I didn't feel like working out after putting in 10+ hours a day at work.Failed to get Blufferdave to work out with me.Overall I'm not too disappointed with December. Things could have gone better though.January Goals:1. Profit 600 live (I haven't made this since Oct, it's time to meet it again)2. Make 100bb playing only .5/1 horse and keep silverstar membership3. Start working out again. Work is slowing down and its time to get back into the gym.4. Finish reading SS1 and read a few chapters of SS2.Weeeeeeeee, lets start the new year out right.

How would you suggest going about it? He's gotta get money for a coach somehow, right?

Decided to add one more goal. I'd kinda like to put in 40K hands online this month. I put in over 20K in 10 days at the end of December, so I think 40K is definitely doable.
