My goals :: Well, I'm not gonna set monetary goals cause once I FT the ME on stars it's gonna be all messed up..but basically...I'm gonna play a ton of PLO and hopefully develop my skills in that game to beat it...I'll keep playing 6 max ring games, but I really am liking PLO now and gonna focus more on that.I'd like to get my roll back above $30k, in order to do that I'd need to win around $6k this month, so obviously I think that'll happen.I just started school up again and I'm trying to focus, but it's tough, so I guess that can be a goal outside of poker. Oh yea, and getting a girl friend. LOL. Been a while for that one too.Anywho, I'm gonna shoot for a $8-$12k month, and depending on how the Main event goes today, maybe more.gla- Jordan

Last month i fell short of expectations, though part of it is because there's about a week cut out of the month. So this is closer to 3 weeks of play. hands $2500 6705500 9726100 12525350 111319,450 hands , +$4,007Average of 5 tables mixed between FR and SH, which is about 50 hours of play.Mostly 2/4 and 3/6, towards the end heavy on the 5/10 and a tiny bit of 10/20.That works out to $80/hour. October is off to a good start. +$350 in my first 500 hands. :club: Im going to set the bar lower because i have a midterm coming up, and im still working 40 hours a week. That doesnt leave many hours to play.20k hands, and about $4,000 is the goal. So im hoping for a repeat of september basically. Im trying to play 5/10 whenever it's available though and hopefully knocking out 2/4 from the routine. And if there're good 10/20's available, ill sit in those. Ive got about 200 hands at 10/20 so far, and im up despite losing a $400 pot. Capped 4 ways and i had aces, some guy who called 3 bets with 67s turned trips on a 742 flop.

Well in the last 15 days I moved from 25NL to 100NL, so by the end of the month I want to be consistently crushing 100NL at 2.5BB/100. Should be possible, my BB/100 currently stands at 15.01.Perhaps try 1/2 if I can roll it.Want to quadrouple my bank roll, to $2K.
You moved up to 100NL with a $500 bankroll. This is 5 buyins. I'm hoping for your sake that you go on a crazy rush as 5 buyins is nothing. $500 might not even be enough to survive variance at 50NL.

Starting bankroll 800.2. Stay playing 2 100NL tables or 4 50 NL tables. No jumping up and down like a donkey.
Same with you. You two might want to think of having atleast 15 buyins before playing at the level you're playing at - unless you have no problem with redepositing.

I have been steadily losing money playing tournaments. So my goals for this month are:1. 20K hands of ring game.2. No more than 10 MTT's (they are addicting, this will be hard, plus I alread played one today.3. Keep taking shots at 5/10NL (I have took a few this week, starting with 11buyins and ending at 17.5)4. Work out at the gym 2-3 times a week (self confidence is good for poker)5. Make 10K. I have never even dreamed of a 10K month before, but if I get 20K hands in, I don't think it will be a problem.

I've run decently well since my miserable July, even though I've cut back on my hours. So I'd like to put in 70 hours in October, continue to grow my roll, and with any luck return to be a winning SHLHE player.

Ouch.As an aside, I do have more money set aside, that can replenish the roll, so 15 buyins is just what I have in my Stars account.

i went BUSTO! live. dealt with the mental aspect suprisingly well. i was crushing the game but i had life leaks that leaked into the bankroll and didn't have the guts to drop down when i should have. i still have life leaks (drinking) but i got the $100 bottle of champagne leak under control. :club: i also learned the last lesson i will ever need about br management.i'm going to turn october into the sickest comeback anyone has heard about. i have a lot of huge goals coming up in the next 6 months. once i achieve them i will post my journal somewhere online.goodluck all.
if you're not playing the notes in front of you it's not mozart.

Hey guys,I've been meaning to post this for a while, but have had no time due to work and a house remodel. But I see a lot of you manually posting your BRs and progress here and I wanted to mention a little programming project I took upon myself a while back that covers this exact purpose:http://www.mobney.comIt's free, you can share your results with others, you can even just make the graph public and include it via <IMG SRC> tags in your blog.Anyway, flame me for "spamming" if you want, but you might keep in mind I'm not making a dime off the site. Just thought some of you might find it useful.Jeff
I think Ivey should start spotting us a hole card now and then.

While I may not have reached my goals for Sept, I've done ok.My bankroll has maintained itself, it's about the same. But, I was very close to busto a few weeks back. I hunkered-down and managed to grind it back to where I started at the beginning of Sept.I decided to purchase Poker Office. I'm extremely excited about this software. I hope it will help me plug up some leaks.That being said. I don't seem to be getting the results I use to in the SnG's and Mtt's. I will still play them, but I'm going to concentrate on ring games because I've been doing fairly well with them.Hope to build my BR by Oct end. Not going to set an amount, just as long as I can increase it I'll be happy.
