Hands? Hours? Results? Dreams?-----My goals dont change much, but for those who REALLY care, here they are.Ive decided against starting on stars until january of 07 because my progress towards supernova will be shot once the clock rolls around. Stars has tried to be accomodating, but it wont fit in with my schedule. So it will have to wait. 25k hands between 2/4 and 10/20 on Absolute. Emphasis on 3/6 and 5/10.ALWAYS 6 tabling. No more wasting time.Which means it should take me about 50 hours, or 12 hours a week.My expected results are in the area of $6,000, plus whatever i win in the tournaments that offer gives me for free. ------Last month (with one day to go) i played 30k hands, and just came short of $7,000. Im quite happy with how it went except that i feel i could have played more 5/10 and less 2/4... i need to force myself to get out of my comfort zone. For reference, i made less than 1/3rd of that at my full time job (in canadian funds, before taxes) yet i put in 3 times as many hours. It kills me to waste so many hours in that office. Only a month and a week left until my contract is up.... and im counting the days.

You're too early!I started a new job in the middle of October. I have to be there at 7am, so I've been way too tired to put in very many hands. I'm getting used to the hours, so hopefully I will feel like playing more poker again. My goal for this month is 10k hands and at least $500, but probably closer to $1000.

i'll post too early, since nothing is changing.October results:- effectively played nothing. didn't even clear my Crypto bonuses like I wanted. let all but one of my pokerroom bonuses expire. played a bit on stars, but mostly dumb stuff like $1.50 turbo NLO8 SnG's.November goals:- studying. have a week to clear that pokerroom bonus, so i'm hoping to do that in one day to get a top-5 spot in the daily points and the bonus. other than that, its just studying and looking for a job.i need to get on the career track, so serious poker is pretty much done for me. i'll probably start up again when i have a job, and need some extra money for rent and stuff.until then, i'll still be around here. good luck at the tables e'eryone.

Turned 430t$ into 4k in october.Now that I have a relatively workable br again probably gonna try to grind up thru the limits. Goal for month is 10k, should be doable.As far as hands I guess 75k is about what i'm aiming for.

its not that i couldn't, its that i choose not to.then again, i have 2500 pages of financial texts to memorize in the next 30 days, so the next month is pretty much booked.when i start working, it'll be a set 40 hours, and i'll start getting back into it.

lmao, i think i might use that line.i'm taking level I for the CFA designation. long story short, i have 4 months of studying to do in one month, and 2/3 of people fail the exam anyways. and 90% of people who take it are financial professionals who've studied for at least 6 months.

Doubled my BR + some, have a +30% ROI on 200 single table sng's, did really good in cash games even though I just play them to pass time, and I feel like im playing great poker now after quitting for 2 weeks. Goals for Novembermaintain at least a 24% ROI playing $11 - $16 turbo sng'sshoot to play 300 sng's for the monthmake the money in any MTT or 180 snggl all

October:Played about 7k hands of 2-4, made about $700 in rakeback, another $250 in profit, didn't play enough thanks to computer nearly dying.November:- $400 a week in rakeback - FInish paying off about 1k in bills.- Finally move up.

Oct results:Wow, what a difference a month can make!I purchased Poker office in late Sept/early Oct, that was a definite big plus. Being able to accurately track results and review/replay hands is definitely a bonus. Player stats on the table overlay helped with a few decisions as well.I played a little more SnG's than I intended. But, I managed to do fairly well for them in Oct. My ROI was 24%+ for about 25 SnG's. Made final table of a 4.40/180, but only managed 8th when my AKs didn't improve against JJ. Didn't matter, I was happy with the way I played.My plan was to concentrate on ring games. And that's primarily what I did. It payed off very nicely, I essentially finished Oct with my BR 4x what it was at the beginning of the month.Nov goals:Continue to concentrate on ring games and build my roll as I did in Oct. Play approximately 15K-20K hands. Stakes will be primarily $10nl with some $25nl thrown in for interest. If my results are favorable with a significant br increase, I may take a shot at $50nl.My mtt play has been better so I hope to play more of those, but not too many. Play some $5 and $10 SnG's, a few $4/$10 180's. Probably a total of 20-30 mtt's/SnG's.Good luck to everyone for Nov!

I don't feel like posting my results for October since I was up over $11K for a while and am nowhere remotely close now, but my graph in the other thread should give you an idea.Anyway, November goals:1. Put in a minimum of 20,000 hands online (upper goal 25,000)2. Make a minimium of $15,000 (upper goal $20,000)3. Make at least $2,000 at Pendleton (upper goal $3,000)I was kinda reaching on the third one, since the first two are all that really matter to me, and I'm not even 100% sure that I'm going to Pendleton. For some reason though, having three goals always seems better than having two.
