Goal for month of August is to profit about $5k playing a mix of 5/10 SH LHE and various MTTs all on FCP.This goal could change greatly if I cash big in any of the MTTs I play in. Well, I'll just put it this way... I plan to make $5k from the SH LHE alone + cover my MTT buy-ins. Anything I make from the MTTs is just icing on the cake.

Play a bit less this month and enjoy the summer weather.Make $2k between 5/10 Lhe live and smaller limit Lhe online. Maybe venture up to 10/20 live on my better nights.Start playing Nlhe online to get ready for it's introduction to my b&m casino.Play tournament Razz for a change of pace.

I've been at the b&m casino a few nights a week. My posting always gets spotty when I don't have any cash online but I put a couple hundred into Full Tilt today so I should be around regularly again, at least for a while.Glad to hear things are working for you. What site do you play on?Hijacking threads is what I do, I have no conscience about it.

I will try not to go broke playing 1-2 limit this month.I don't have a money goal since i am running like 1 BB/100 for 7k hands.All i wanna do is convince myself that its possible to win money playing limit texas hold'em.I also want to learn and get better at NL and play some SnG's this month.

In light of having miserably failed my hand # goal for July, not even getting in 1/3 as many as I had hoped, I go into August with a goal of even more hands! 60k for this month, I think I may actually be able to do it though since I've been a machine for the last week or so, I think I can at least come close.Oh, and be at 10/20 by the end of the month for sure, no more dilly dallying

August is going to be a kick-*** month, I can feel it, and after July I'm ready to start running good again.Posted ImageMy first days results. Sustainable? **** yea.As far as my goals:Hands - 60k $$ - Doesn't really matter. Hopefully a lot though.Play lots of NL.Take calculated shots at like 5/10 or 200 NL. I'm the nittiest person in the world when it comes to moving up and taking shots, so I'm hoping I can overcome this.

My goal is to build my bankroll by playing $5 HU matches, and $0.1 NL 6max. In a week or two, I expect to move to the next level of HU matches and 6 max NL.I also want to improve my SNG game because I am aweful at them. The last 4 I have played I haven't cashed.

you're hopeless.maybe SnG's are just not meant for you,Just to be sure, though, play 2 more.If you still haven't cashed, play 100 just for shits and giggles

LOL!I really suck at SNG's. I don't know whether to blame variance or my skills. Last two I have been eliminated when 99 was beat by 33, and AKo vs AKo, the guy made a runner runner flush. First two, I lost to coin flips both times.I used to think limit was hopeless. But then once I focussed on improving my game, I found out that I can make $$ playing limit. I hope the same reasoning applies to SNG's.

To get good enough heads up to at least win 50% of those situations. Yes, that's right, I am a terrible heads up player.
