Not so much in the last week b/c of the downswing.-Move up to $6.50 turbo SNGs fulltime.Check.Not a bad month, but I could have done better. I think I played B avg. poker for the most part. In any case, here are the goals for MarchMarch goals

Feb:-Make 10 buy-ins at $25. (From the 16th) Started of great, was up to $150-ish after four days, playing pretty good. Then I had my "once a month" monkey-tilt session and lost that. Ended up at +$90 + some rake back. March:-Average 500 hands a dayMake $500 so I can move up to $50

February Goals and Results
  • 20,000 hands at 3/6 LHE and up online. I'll be in Vegas for a week, so I've lowered my goal a bit here.I wasted way too much time playing SNGs and MTTs, as usual. I only played 12,000ish hands, and a lot of those were even at 2/4, as I had to drop down a bit after my roll taking a hit for my trip to Vegas.
  • $5,000 in profit, after bonus and rakeback.Well, definitely did not reach this goal either. IMO, I ran awfully, and I'm pretty sure I left money on the tables, but I managed to clear $1,243.94 after estimating for rakeback. This number will change slightly, more than likely when I get the final RB #s, etc. Still, way below my goal, and rather disappointing, considering I cleared a $1000 worth of bonus and cleared almost $700 in RB. Bleh, bad month at the tables. This figure also doesn't include losses while in Vegas, as I'm attributing that to entertainment expenses rather than poker income.
  • Win some money while in Vegas.Nope.
March Goals
  • 25,000 hands at 2/4 LHE and up online.
  • $5,000 in profit, after bonus and rakeback.
  • Practice better table selection, and site selection, and stay away from -EV (high variance) MTTs and SNGs when I could be putting in more time playing cash games, clearing bonuses and rakeback.
Really, what I'd like to do is get my BR back to $3k, it's about $1800 or so after I get my RB payments, AND take enough out to finally pay for my tuition ($2500 CAD) and pay off my Visa once and for all ($1000 CAD). That totals about $4500 in profit, so hopefully I can actually do it. I'd also really like to show a goddamn profit at the tables. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I think I'll wait until April and May to start trying to Sat to some of the WSOP events.GL All.- ZachEDIT - Profit ammended to $1,198.40 after receiving less RB than I expected. (Just means that I'll get a bit more in March from what I played early this morning, which I was still considering Feb)

March Goals:Have a great time in Cambodia and don't get malaria!loool.If I go to LA upon return, win at least 5 buy ins.I literally have hardly any money online and my bankroll is just like "whatever". However it is still there and well I just need to get in some hours, preferrably live. So we'll see.I got my school goals for feb. set, so I'm pretty much good to go there. Spring quarter...if I do the same I'm straight...but I would like to take a few more poker trips if possible.Or.......this whole online poker thing passes, neteller comes back...and I can move money around again online. lol. i can dream...- Jordan

February Results:I did do very well in cash games this past month, which is a good thing since it has been my primary focus for the past 2 months. And to see that it has been working and paying off is really satisfying, since I used to be a sng/mtt donk. Made $900 in hold em games, some .50/$1 shnlhe, 3/6 and 5/10 shlhe. Than in 2-7 lowball, I made about $1,200 at limits ranging from 2/4 -5/10. And now the bad news... ugh this sucks soooooo bad, I almost dont want to admit it. But i'm down almost $900 in mtt's, a few sng's and a few satellites. that blows hard. My big score never came around like it did in January. It seems as though I can't win a crucial hand when I really need too, regardless if im a huge favorite, 60/40, 40/60, coin flip, and obv a huge underdog, nothing would go my way this month. I mean I got heads up 4/8 times in double shootout satellites, and only pulled out the winner one of them, where obv the next table i went out in 7th place. but I lost every heads up battle to a hand where I should have won, makes me so sick. March goals:Destroy cash games. I'm not going to set a monetary amount to shoot for, Just to kill these games and play my "A" game 24/7 and play with confidence. I believe if you do these two things all the time, the money will inevitably make its way into your hands. Final Table numerous mtt's/180's. I need to follow up a dissapointing February with an insane march. Side goal (more of a goal for the next 3 months), if I have the time for it, Make some T$ that I can use to try and satellite into this years WSOP. That would be a huge accomplishment...gl to all in march

16,534 hands +1969.50 (3.11bb/100)I did move up to 1-2 but didnt run all that well.

Kinda middle of the road. Id obv like to see my win rate higer and have gotten to 20k hands but i worked more than usual this month.March goals:20K handstake a shot at 2-4NL once ive got 25 buy ins, drop down if i lose 3-5about the same as last month really.

On the 10th of Feb I deposited $220 on PS, with a goal of being around $350-400 by the end of the month. After doing alright in .5/1 TD, winning a $4.40 180 and a $5 doublestack sng on FT, I was around $600. I am right at $550 now between PS and FT, and will continue playing the $4.40 180s and $5 ds sngs, with the occasional shot at the $11's. March goals:- FT four 180s- FT two ds sngs - Be up around 150-200 bbs at .50/1 TD, with the occasional shot at 1/2 if the game is good.- Finish the month around 1.2k

I didn't post one for Feb, mainly because I had an infuriating month in Jan. I hit a bad swing for 50k hands, but managed to rake about 3k profit for february. So with the br at 7.7kish, my goal for march is22k Bankroll. 100,000 hands playing at 3/6, 5/10, and 10/20.

That is seriously the most disgusting thing I've ever heard.My goal for March is to play at least 300 HU PLO SNG's with a 20% ROI.

February Results For Poker Stars.Start: $150End: $676+ $526 / 21 buy-insFebruary was my first attempt at $25 NL on Stars and probably my first attempt in close to a year. I played 2 or 3 tables, and on a few occasions I played 4. A few days ago I was up to $750, but lost 3 buy-ins in some rough hands. The goal I set at the beginning of February was to get up to $1,000 on Stars by the end of March. Unless I have a cold streak, I should have no problem passing by that mark. I'm going to take my first shot at $50 NL when I get up to $1,200 and will set my stop loss point at $1,000, or 4 buy-ins, if it doesn't go well. But to get my $1k goal I'll need 13 more buy-ins. I'd really like to hit 21 buy-ins to get myself rolled to take my first shot at $50 NL.

March Goals:Since i didnt get there last month, we'll set the bar at playing 15k hands.Once again, 'Silver' status in FTP's iron man challengeI'll be real conservative....id like to play/run well enough to stay at 50nl the whole month. Last month consisted of way too much running bad, dropping down, moving up and repeating.February Results: I'll set a modest goal of 15k hands, I easily beat it in january, but Feb. is a short month so we'll see how it goes. Due to running bad and taking a break, i only played 11.6k hands. I'd also like to again reach at least 'Silver' status for FTP's Iron man. no dice...took too many days off.I'd love to be able to make $1k in profits this month, hopefully just from playing, but more realistically including rakeback. profits?! what are those :club: Start taking shots at 100nl and hopefully move up for good near the end of the month. move UP?! lolz im funny.

Well, I shan't complain about _February_:--Looking to play around 5000 hands of PLO25 and 2000 hands of PLO8-50, both full ring.I don't have PT omaha, but my notes are fairly good: 3850 hands of plo, 1350 hands plo8 (+/-50)-- Minimum monetary goal is 150.PLO +130PLO8 +18MTT +22Bonus/Other +44Total Roll Increase: +214.40-- If PLO25 runs well, maybe play some PLO six max.was doing even better than my finish, but gave some of it back at full ring, not six max-- No other ring games this month, no LHE, NLHE, LO8, etc.Check--Also, spend no more than $25 in donkaments,Check. Only played 5 5+.5s. Cashed in one.-- and no more freerolls.Check.Well, I'll never be that disciplined ever again. The goals for March are to finish clearing my PS bonus from December. Figure out how to cash out from a smaller site. Reread SSHE before jumping back into LHE. Maybe read it twice. More PLO, six max if I continue winning. No Plo8, No NLHE. Play no more than 25 MTTs and turn a profit in these.
Dude!

It's sickening how hot I run.Aces are literally 0 for the last like 10... at least. Probably more if you don't include hands where they just fold preflop.Every time, flop Jxx, donkbets, I raise, idiot calls, turn rag, idiot calls, river J, and he donks his AJ. At least 5 times in the last 2 days that exact scenario.To make things worse, every goddamn time I make TP, some idiot has a slowplayed, waiting for the turn to raise. It's fucking sickening. I'd wager my entire roll that I run into Aces with showdown worthy hands 10 times more frequently than anyone in my database. It is fucking sickening.Every single fucking time I raise preflop, I get c/r or raised on the flop, OR they wait for the fucking turn.Literally the ONLY fucking pots I win are ones where I raise preflop and they all fold.I NEVER have the best hand at showdown anymore. It is fucking sickening.Do I suck? Or what the fuck? No matter wtf I do, I get fucking wrecked every fucking session. It's FUCKING DISGUSTING.If any of the LHE experts want to help me out and watch one of my sessions or something for an hour or two, please let me know. This is fucking sickening.I don't even think I can play this game anymore./rant.
