2/4 is well within my BR, and I do have RB/bonus for the 3/6 on AP, if there are no 2/4 games going. I'll be at $1800 in no time to be up with industry BR standards for the 3/6 anywhere.I'm actually trying to figure out what to do to make up for the tables now that AP sucks for FR. I emailed FT support to see if they'll hook me up with RB, so we'll see about that. I imagine it will be similar to Stars in terms of gameplay and tables open, as in I can always have 4-5 tables going between FT and AP.I was also thinking about either Prima networks, or Crypto... which is better?
FT is probably a good idea.Both Prima and Crypto have only occasional FR going. I know Crypto usually has 1-2 2/4 and maybe 1 3/6 going sometimes. Don't know exactly what goes at Crypto, but volume is poor there too.I think there's usually a couple going at Doyle's Room, where bonus + RB clear concurrently.Optimal is probably to put a couple hundred on each of those sites, and play wherever there are games. That'll be annoying though, so I think just trying to get RB on FT is the smartest for now.

Favourited. Make sure you talk about drinking and stuff too, so I don't have to rationalize why I'm reading a poker blog.
Long signatures are really annoying.

OK, so I deviated from my plan...I had a great beginning of December and worked up to about 100k playing 100/200 and 200/400. Then took a shot at the 500/1000 game which was full and lost 25k. Worked my way back up to 100k in the next few days then looked at my schedule starting with the LA Poker Classic and ending with the WSOP and decided to withdraw 75k from the account to pay for the entry fees for all the tournaments I'd like to play in in that timespan.I know my original goal was to work up to 300k, but that session at 500/1000 frustrated/bothered me that when I got back to 100k I made the decision to bankroll myself in the live events after basketball season. I've also been really busy with basketball (december is tournament season) and after I withdrew on the 14th I didn't play but 6 or 7 sessions for the rest of the month. Anyway, I'm happy that I've staked myself for the live tournaments, but on the other hand I'm a little dissapointed that I didn't have the patience to reach my original goal. Oh well.

Haven't updated my progress or posted goals for a while, since Nov.Nov started good, ended Nov Break even. Dec started out so-so and then got bad. By mid Dec, my measely little $440 BR was down to about $330. But, I'm glad to report the last couple weeks of Dec were outstanding and my account is up to $834.And, I finally made a final table in a MTT other than a 180 SnG. However, it was only a 50 cent buyin tourney, lol. 1st- $188, 2nd $120, 3rd $64......... I managed a third! Doesn't matter, it gave me some confidense that was very badly needed. Even though it was a low buy-in doesn't matter to me, I finally made a final table in an MTT (2200+ entrants).After the final table I managed to win two $10+$1 18 seat SnG's, and place 4th in another, after a very long draught in those. It was nice to finish well in those again too. Cash games did well for me as well to help with the end of Dec success.So, Jan.......I'm simply concerned with continuing to build my BR. I would really like to get to the $1K mark, it's a goal I've had since I first started back in Spring of 06. It's been a long time coming, but patience and good BR managment has allowed me to get this far. The $1K mark is so close I can almost touch it......... almost. I would like to see a final table at a higher buy-in MTT, $5-$20 buy-in. I won't play many of these so I'm not overly optimistic. Some more good success with the SnG's would be welcome as well.Monetary goal for Jan....... $200, playing mostly $25nl, with some (very little) $50nl & $100nl thrown in for interest and testing the waters at those levels.Good luck everyone!Zach, looking forward to reading your blog. Glad to hear you are doing well.

Nice. I hope it works out. An extra $40 for me would be nice.
