I haven't gotten around to making one of these in a while, so I figured I'd steal someone's thunder...March Goals
  • Make 15 buy-ins at 3/6 NL before moving up.
  • Play well in the WPC ME.
  • Get my BR back over $20k.
February Goals/Results
  • Become overall profitable at 3/6 NLHE.Check.
  • Continue taking shots at 5/10 NL and 30/60 Limit.After getting kicked in the teeth by 5/10 early in the month, I really didn't play much afterwards, but it was good experience as I gradually get comfortable at that level. I also didn't really play much LHE.
  • Build my BR to $30k.Failed this one. Sitting on $14k at the moment.

Goal for feb was 60k hands and 14k dollars.I made about 15k, but i only played roughly 40k hands. As for goals in march, im going to be realistic and say 50k hands and a modest $15,000.But hopefully ill get my **** together and play more. We'll see.I also need to start funnelling my online funds to my bank account in preparation for purchasing a condo. My non-poker goal is to have all the paperwork done by mid april so that i can close for the beginning of june and hopefully be moved in for summer. It's going to be the sickest place ever. Im going to install hardwood floors with my dad, granite countertops, sweet leather couches, a 50inch flat screen and all sorts of awesome touches. Im also going to get a really awesome poker table. Ive already decided the buildings. For anyone in toronto, it's at bayview and sheppard in the NYC styled buildings. 1bdrm+den with 2 washrooms. Posted Image Posted Image

Those are really nice places abba, for sure. Good for you! Hopefully I can get in on the inaugural Abba open poker tourney and housewarming...lolI'll drive up from London for that.For feb results...yea...busto on stars, busto on AP, didn't cash an mtt at all the first part of the month, then got about 300 in rakeback, worked my ass off to get it to $650 playing 50nl, was running at 18bb/100 for the first week or so...thennnnn variance showed up and kicked the shit out of me and I watched my 650 drop back to about 350, so I cashed it out. I'm going to Vegas on Saturday for 5 days, and maybe after that I'll redeposit and get back in the game...So for march goal...who knows...All depends what if anything I bring back from LV. I'm gonna play in the $540 deepstack tourney on Sat at the Venetian, and if I cash in that, I'll probably play the $330 on sunday as well. If not, I'll probably slide over to Caesars and catch the final match of the HU championship tourney that will be happening.Anyone else in LV for the Venetian deepstacks this coming week??

holy crap, i grew up at bayview and york mills, family still lives at yonge and eglinton, so i know exactly which ones you're talking about. pretty swanky, and great location near the subway. probably will be able to sell it for double in 5 years.so can i crash on your couch for 3 weeks during the Ex at the end of August?

February Goals:Get some real money onto FullTilt (~$4k).Actually play some poker. Looking to play at least 10k hands.Didn't get cash onto FullTilt from my other accounts (well, $1k, but not as much as I'd like).Didn't play much poker. Played only 1300 cash game hands. Only played 26 sitngos/tourneys too.Overall:Cash games break evenSitnGos/Tourneys +$700ish.Ok. March goals:I have a challenge (only for $200, but still provides motivation) set by my flatmate: 10k hands of $100NL, with a winrate of >3.5BB/100. I'm expecting to breeze it. Means I actually have to play though.

Feb Goals :10-15K hands at $0.02/0.04NL increase bankroll to $150-200 Didn't make it only played roughly 8k hands and bankroll at $100, approx 7.5BB/100. Made most of my gains in the 1st 2 weeks and then went up and down by $5 daily for 2 weeks, bloody frustrating!. Poker Office went tits up after the party update mid month so switched to PokerTracker hence rough figures.Party is still ropey since the update and freezes on me 3-4 times a night, lost more than one monster hand to that.March Goals :10k+ hands $0.02/0.04NL increase bankroll to $200. Use PokerTracker more effectively.Titan also dropped $15 dollars into my empty account So I'll mess around loosely with that if I feel like I'm tilting.Have to learn to let my big pairs and sets go when he board has big flush potential and be more conservative with AK AQ.GL everyone :club:

February Goals:I have about $1400 in 20's stuffed in a sock in my underwear drawer. My goal for February is to stuff many more 20's into that sock. - I stuffed a few more in there and then took the whole wad to the bank.I'm hoping to be able to play live poker 2-3 times a week at some of the cardrooms here in New York, assuming my work schedule cooperates. - I did that, but the New York poker scene is becoming more and more miserable. However, no one here knows how to play mixed games, and there's a certain 10-20 HOE with a half kill that I wish would run every day. Beyond that, I've suspended my online play because I may be moving to the West Coast and that bankroll would pay for the move. - This has been confirmed. I am officially moving to LA this summer. I hear the live poker scene might be slightly better there.March Goals:Just put $400 in FTP. Going to try to double that playing SNG's. Mostly single table. $100NL online has become incredibly nitty, to the point where I saw multiple occasions in which tables went an entire orbit without seeing a flop. That's totally astounding to me. Also, if I can ever actually get set up on UB with rakeback, I'm going to try to play a couple thousand hands there to get a feel for how people play on that site.

I spent a good amount of time in Jan/Early Feb withdrawing funds to pay off debts then moving a portion of my bankroll to Absolute so I didn't really set any goals last month. March Goals-10,000 hands-Make $1500 (rakeback and bonuses included)Current roll is at about $4600, would like to get it up over 6k by april playing 1/2NL

That's odd. I've played about 4k hands there over the last 2 weeks and haven't had it freeze up on me once. Do they not offer disconnect protection for the micros to save your monsters from freezing/disconnections?

Feb Goal: to play between 300-350 sngs and hopefully get my roll up to 4 or 5K by the end of the month and then go back to playing SHLHE and also mix in some O8. I also want to get money onto stars somehow so I can divide my time between FT and stars so I can get in more Turbosstarting roll: $1188well, I accomplished one goal and failed at the other. I got in 507 sngs this past month and have my roll up to $2316 on FT and 150 something on stars. So, I was able to get my roll up to almost 2500 in total and should be getting like 350 in RB so, not bad, not what i wanted either.march goals: due to midterms and me spending 10 days in NYC, I'm just hoping to get in about 250sngs at the 36-60 levels and hopefully finally get my roll up to 4-5k so that I can start playing SHLHE again.also, I would like to be able to play on stars more, so if anyone is willing to exchange stars $$ for FT $$ and you're reputable, I'm listening
