Hi everyone, long time reader, first time goalster. These threads are a bunch of fun to read, so decided to challenge myself.Looking to play around 5000 hands of PLO25 and 2000 hands of PLO8-50, both full ring. Minimum monetary goal is 150. If PLO25 runs well, maybe play some PLO six max. No other ring games this month, no LHE, NLHE, LO8, etc.Also, spend no more than $25 in donkaments, and no more freerolls.
Dude!

I want to play 20 hrs of sngs ranging from $38-$76. I'll most likely stick with the 38-55's cus I took most of my money offline (no not because the sky is falling, for other reasons.) I'll be 6-10 tabling so I'd like to get in atleast 150 sngs and make $1000-$1500 profit. If I get to play anything else it will just be a bonus, I really don't have the time or energy to play much.

I just got epassporte set up using a credit card (since they were taking too long on the bank account verification). The main drawback is that the fees are basically 5% for depositing, $5 for every $100. I never deposit money anyway though. I'm just using this so I can get epass set up for withdrawals and be able to take money out when I need to. I also bounced for the $35 physical card so that I can actually access the money in my account. I'm stoked because it looks like I may actually be able to start accessing my rakeback and some of the money I have online. Now, I just have to wait the 3-5 weeks to receive my expensive *** physical card so that I can withdraw the cash to an atm or something.

so far i've failed on account 2 (me likey beer and mescal) and ran like absolute shiznite today.gonna have to bunker down.
if you're not playing the notes in front of you it's not mozart.

After cashing out what was left of my meagre roll from Titan before Xmas I was only able to put $50 back at the beginning of Jan and plan to bonus whore for a bit.First $50 bonus at Golden Riviera was easy enough to clear but when I moved to Royal Vegas to clear the $100 bonus I hit a series of bad beats that left me pretty much busto. :D With no money left to deposit things were looking bleak until I remembered that I had $17 dollars sitting on Party from way back so I've been grinding tightly away at $.02/.04 NLand have it up to $52.Feb GoalsPlay 10-15k hands at $.02/.04 NL and increase bankroll to $150-$200Modest Goal cause I generally play less than 500 hands a night even 4-tabling.GL everyone. :club:

This right here explains why (imo) I'll never be a "grinding" winner at poker.For the time it takes me to play 15k hands trying to make $150, I'd rather just come in to work for an 8-hour shift and make twice that much in one day.Don't take this the wrong way, I really respect you guys that have the discipline to put in the time and effort, but to my way of thinking, it's just not worth it. I'd bet if you spent the same amount of time every month just walking the streets lookingfor loose change, you could earn about the same amount of profit...lol

Think of it like an investment, 10-15K of .02-.04 now, 10-15K of 200-400 in 2 years. Unfortunately, you can't find thousand dollar bills rolling around the streets. I will, however, admit to not having that kind of discipline myself.

First time in on this thread so here's the background. Initial $50 BR dep Jan 1. 07 with a goal of hitting $100 by the end of the month playing .05/.10 cash games about 6 hrs a week and 2-3 $3 1table SNGs.Result BR: 02-01 - $114February:Moving up to $5 1table SNGs and $1 45 person SNGs 2 each/day. And around 6 hrs at the .25/.50.Would like to move my stack up to about $250 this month so I can make a push for $500 in March.Right now all I play is NLHE for $$ and I'm learning some of the nuance in PLO and 7stud in the play money games when I have time. Played in some .25/.50 cash tables yesterday and realized I think I can grind those out to around $7/hr which is about half of my job take. Just gotta get that BR up to $500 then I can start doin some moves with it to break the 1k mark ^^Depending on bills might try to take adv. of the Dep. Bonuses at FT or Pacific

Just a warning, but playing .25/.50 NLHE with a $114 bankroll is like asking to go broke. You should have 20 buyins, generally as a minimum, to play a certain level of NLHE, ie $1000.

Yah it's not ideal but I'm building without much of a start and only playin .25/.50 with partial winnings on the week.January is a lil skewed because I started off really badly and brought it back in the last couple of weeks as I got the ball rolling.

I can understand where your coming from up to a point but there may be the odd thing you haven't considered.I don't know what you do in your 8-hour shift to make $300 and it really doesn't matter if you know what I do in my 8-hour shift to make a lot less than that. The point is how you feel about what you do, and as it stands I'd rather do the 15k hands than spend one more minute in my job than I absolutely have to.It could also be said that there are those who would view you playing 30-50 tournaments to increase yor roll by only $400 as pretty much the same thing to me playing 15k hands to make $150 especially as you can make $300 in an 8-hour shift. I guess it depends on your viewpoint and the levels your playing at.I had always assumed that people who post goals like mine and yours are as Rgold79 says planning to move up when they can and learn from the experience as they do it.You are entitled to your opinion and I'm always happy to hear peoples thoughts and I hope that I have been able to clarify matters. :club:

Get my personal roll restarted, as being staked really sucks.Try to really work on my SHLHE, as that's where my mood is taking me right now.I'm thinking around 4k hands with any positive BB/100 rate :club:

It's really unbelievable how bad im doing at 5/10 and how good im doing at 10/20 and 15/30.-0.4BB/100 at 5/10 over 35k hands+3BB/100 at 10/20 and 15/30 over 15k handsNot that im upset - im doing quite well in terms of dollars. In terms of bets, this is my worst stretch ever by far.0.5BB/100 over 60k hands across all stakes.
