Well, this was not exactly the way I wanted to start 2008 when I was already a little bit underbankrolled.Posted Image

December Goals were: Play 25k handsWin at least 5kPlay my best in the remaining Trump Classic events and Harrah's WSOP events if I play any of those.Convince Jordan to come to ACDecember Results:Played almost exactly 20k hands.. I'm not disappointed about not reaching my goal bc there was 8 days in the month I didn't play online at all do to the holidays and live events.I won close to $3.8k in cash games online and I cashed in one WSOP circuit event for $8.4k. I thought I brought my A game to all the live tourneys I played. I was one race away from a big score in the WSOPC. January Goals:Play 30k handsWin 7kPlay my best in Borgata Winter Open.

Hurtling toward busto with incredible speed. I am running $5,000 below expectation at PLO this month, but I didn't move down to 0.5/1 when I was supposed to, and I even had a really soft 2/4 table open last night where I lost $2,000. Anyway, here's an incredibly depressing picture:Posted Image

dec results +13.6k -- actually not thrilled about this, as i was +21k about half way thru the month, then lost 6k total at plo and just really pissed me off. didn't play much at all prob last 10 days of the month. but alas, another 10k+ month, so that's nice.idk what im going to try and do this month. i still havent played a hand...but lets just say 20k hands and anything over $10k will be fun.- Jordan

I really hope you destroy sell your seat to someone else for the HU matches on Stars and use that $2k to try and rebuild some semblance of a bankroll at the proper limits that you know you can crush, instead of being a stubborn moron and playing $400plo with ~$2500 in your account.
Odds against this happening +250Any action?

Well, I'm grinding PLO50 and PLO100 right now trying to make 2500 VPPs to clear my $1500 VIP bonus. If I have to, I've got a couple thousand I can redeposit. I'm not going to sell my seat to the HU tourney, but I've already sold 20% of my action and if people want to buy some more, I'd be happy to sell a decent amount.

2.5 percent. Would be good for $500 if I win the tournament.

Dec sucked!!! down 2k ish....Jan. Its a new year and i am basically overhauling my poker.I've already loaded '07s hands into PT that i got up and running. I have analyzed it and am shocked that i only played 110k in cash game hands. Some of my stats were pretty gross, in full ring i had vpip of 20% with 10% raise preflop- way too spewy. My bb/100 is solid though, every stake below 100NL i have 12+bb/100 and at 100NL i am at 8bb/100, 200NL i am running 3bb/100 but only have 8k hands in it. probably have about 50k in tourny hands too though. My new regiment is to have 1-2 hour sessions of 5+ tabling 100NL full ring and then spending a decent amount of time analyzing my play afterwards. I have already noticed some places where I like how i played but def. see places to increase value in my hands. Gonna get PAHUD when their new version comes out which is supposed to be soon. I want to consistently be 6 tabling and working my way up to 8+ tabling. Subscribed to PokerXFactor and renewed my sub. with CardRunners. I am going to take their new series of full ring videos very seriously and follow their preflop charts and apply the principles that they outline in the videos. I think i want to be a 13/10 player instead of the 20/10 i was up until i realized that is what i was doing. I also want to take the 6-max series they have and really delve into that arena. I will probably stay at 100 for awhile... but i would like to return to 200NL. I know i am profitable in tournies but sometimes i just feel i need to lay off of them.... I got PXF specifically for the tournies but i just dont know, i am at home in a cash game...Saving up my fpp's to get a PS3 so i can have bluray and rockband haha i'm about 25% there. Gonna get another monitor too, hopefully a tourny score will take care of that, i am thinking 24" from what it seems like on the forums. I would love the 30" though too, if i were to get that one i would get the apple 30" refurbished for 1.5k supposed to have the best res out of any monitor that size. that would be ballin. dont care too much about the profit this month just that i felt i learned more about my own game and ways to improve. peace to everyone and happy pokering
