November results:Absolute: $2207: (+553) -----2/4 and lower LO8, Stud8 , $50PLO, $10 SnG's(NLHE)Bodog: $1366: (-64)-------$50 NLHEStars: $499: (-174)--------1/2 HORSE, Stud8, 2-7TDFull Tilt: $593: (-37)--------WITHDREW $$$$$ --Sick of FT!!!!Got my head kicked in everywhere but AP. I think I'm gonna stay at the same levels there, even though I'm rolled to play higher. Wish the 1/2 games were going regularly , I won't play 2/4 when the games seem excessively nitty, so I end up playing way lower than I want. But I still play my best, regardless of the stakes.On a positve note, I was stuck waaaaaaaaaay more at Bodog, but made a nice comeback. I hit the point where I decided; one more losing session and I'm moving down to $25 NLHE, luckily an upswing started.I can't win a pot at Stars, especially in TD. Everytime I called I was beat, every time I folded someone shoved Snow in my face!!! :D :D Retired from FullTilt, just sick of it, not sure why. :club: Goals are just to have positive numbers at all 3 of my sites. And not play as much TD.
-Only H.O.R.S.E.men who play 2-7 TD are true poker players.

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 sng
I kind of lost track on playing the turbo sng's, mostly because I am still kinda skeptical on playing the $16 turbo's. Had some bad experiences when trying to move up, but I'm going to give them another try as I think there is some real money to be made there.But I am most proud of my goal of making the money in any MTT/180 goal. I cashed in on 4 $10 mtt's on stars (nothing big), 3 $10 mtt cashes on FT (again nothing big), 2nd place in a $10 180, 8th place in a $20 180, 2nd place in a SH triple shootout, won a $530 satellite ticket, and 2 more $215 satellite tickets. Now I just have to work on my MTT end game and closing out and i just might cash it in big. Had a great november, goal was to get my bankroll up to $1500, I currently stand @ 2k. Gonna be moving up the stakes a bit..25/.50 shnl he : goal 6k hands and a winrate anything 8bb/100 or better150 $16 turbo single table sng's : 15% ROI +75 $6/$16 two table turbo sng's : 25% ROI +MTT's : one top 3 finish in mtt with 400+ entries180's : one top 2 finishsatellites : win at least one DS $215 satellite ticket per weekglgl

Goals for this month, with the help of Limit stat play 10k hands of limit and be winning at the end of it.Not sure if I am going to play full ring or short handed. But I need to get better at this game because it is easily my worst game out of the HORSE games.Also need to clear Doyles room bonus.

Three.It's almost at the point that I'm not sure if I can beat $1/2 any more. I just want to have a winning month. I'm seriously considering taking a couple weeks off. Maybe read a book or two.

FINALLY I get in on the ground floor of one of these "goals" threads!Well, as of last friday, I started a "$1 Challenge" In the same vein as what Chris Ferguson did a while back. He started with a buck, and worked his way up through the micro limits, practiced strict bankroll management, and eventually wound up with something ridiculous like 20kAfter 1 week, I turned $1 into $60 and change, and I'm pretty happy with my play and progress thus far. I've been playing primarily limit poker, LO8, Stud Hi, and Stud 8. I took a shot at a HORSE game tonight, and logged a big win. I built the original dollar up in the penny NL games, and from then moved to the micro LO8 and stud games. My December goal is to reach $300 in my $1 Challenge.

Brag post time.After having a few databases corrupted and/or lost due to crappy hard drive problems, ive finally topped off my first 100k hand database at AP.Posted ImageIm trying to fill up my other database to 100k hands too. I could conceivably finish it off by the year end. There're about 60k hands so far in it... doing even better than i am on the one shown above. Mostly from 2/4... im killing it in the other databases.

If anyone wants to stake me to play the 2/4 full ring LHE games on Absolute with rakeback and bonuses, PM me...lol I'm not in the mood for grinding up from the micros again, and I'd really rather not go lower than 2/4, although I'd stoop to 1/2 if someone actually wanted to stake me for that, lol.I'm officially a charity case.DN - I'm looking in your direction...

There are some fish in these 1/2 PLO games.PokerStars Pot-Limit Omaha High, $2 BB (9 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FCP)MP2 ($57)MP3 ($277.70)CO ($243.70)Button ($268.05)SB ($115)BB ($40)Hero ($300.40)UTG+1 ($339.40)MP1 ($187.10)Preflop: Hero is UTG with K :D , 2 :D , T :club: , T :) . Hero calls $2, 2 folds, MP2 calls $2, MP3 calls $2, CO calls $2, Button calls $2, 1 fold, BB checks.Flop: ($13) 7 :club: , T :) , 9 :P (6 players)BB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks, MP3 bets $2, CO raises to $10, Button folds, BB raises to $38, Hero calls $38, MP2 folds, MP3 folds, CO calls $28.Turn: ($129) 9 :D (3 players)Hero bets $60, CO calls $60.River: ($249) Q :) (3 players)Hero bets $200.4 (All-In), CO calls $143.70 (All-In).Final Pot: $593.10Main Pot: $536.40, between CO and Hero. > Pot won by Hero ($536.40).Pot 2: $56.70, returned to Hero.Results in normal coloration below:BB has 4s Jh 8h 3c (straight, queen high). CO has Ad Kd 6c 8s (straight, ten high).Hero has Kh 2h Td Tc (full house, tens full of nines). Outcome: Hero wins $593.10.That's right, CO called off a full buy-in after the board paired into a dry side pot with the second high straight. Maybe I'll be robusto again sooner than I thought.

what really killed my roll was a real long breakeven stretch and then a small win stretch when I had to pay a lot of bills and rent. Those months where I'd be up like 1K or 2K would turn into breakeven months or losing months because of rent and the such. I was telling wang, in one of my DBs for short LHE, I was a 1.7 BB 100 winner over 115K hands(and my WR would've been higher if my DB didn't get corrupted and I lost like 30K hands of a sick 3.5 BB/100 heater at 3/6 and 5/10). My other DB I was a .7 BB/100 winner over 120K hands at short LHE. I don't want to talk about me turning into a limidonk at NL over the past 2 months. My FYP of your post was in semi jest for me, I'm just obscenely frustrated with everything

Well, I'm officially back on track now. I did dip into my credit a little bit when I just had to bet on UCLA today and didn't want to touch my Stars balance, but my active BR's back up over $2600. I'm up $300 or so on sports bets this month, a little over 5 buy-ins at 1/2 PLO and turned some of my remaining FPPs into $470 by winning a satellite and a SnG. After moving up too fast and failing so many times lately, I'm going to be staying at my current levels for quite a while now, and as long as I don't run bad here and go back into the danger zone, I should be using much better BR management in the future.

I've come in to my own lately in tournaments and finally seem to be getting a grasp on the 180's. My goals for December are...1) Play 20 180's, Final Table at least 4 or 5, win one, at least two top threes.2) Play $1/2 6max and show at least 4bb/100 winrate.3) Increase bankroll to 1500-2000 from current 900.4) Stop withdrawing every time I win a 180, to assist with goal #3...lol5) Satellite in to, and PLAY, the Sunday Million. I've won a few tickets but always end up taking the T$.
