E-cash emailed me and said that my withdrawal had been sent to c2p, but it's still not in my account, so who knows.

Seems like a lot of people didn't get to play as much as they wanted in April. Fortunately, realizing that I'd be swamped with school, I set my bar pretty low.May Goals
  • Play the Silver Medal freeroll that I qualified for on FT. (First time I've ever played enough in a month to qualify for anything on Stars or FT.)
  • Play as much as I can from the road. I'll be traveling a lot this month.
  • Play some satellites to the WSOPC ME in New Orleans.
April Goals/Results
  • Play 50 STTs of $50 and above.Ended up playing 85 STTs. Mostly $50, but a lot of $100s also. Finished with an overall ROI of 15%...which I think is decent, but it's kind of meh.

k, gonna need to redo my hand totals goal and take back on my SnGs total goal. So, I'm gonna try to get in 50 SnGs between 24-36 turbos on FT and Stars and get in like 25-30K hands while running around 1.75-2 BB/100 at both 2/4 and 3/6 SHLHE
that was my april. well, I got in 23K at 2/4 SHLHE and dropped a little over 900. The move back to SHLHE didn't go fully as planned, but I did cut things off with a week to go in april after dropping like 130 bbs in one session. I decided to not really play anything serious until finals are over, which is the 11th. So, I'll probably start up playing again on the 14th, so I hope to get in like 20K hands at 2/4 and hopefully 3/6 SHLHE across stars and FT(especially once the lag starts to die down). I still want to hopefuylly run at 1.75-2BB/100 as I know I can beat the game for that level at this level

Okay. My April goal was just to make money. Mission accomplished. I went back to the beginning, playing nothing but $10NL and $25NL. Got in almost 3100 hands which is a good volume month for me and ran at 7.8ptbb/100. Net Profit: $99.45.As part of my preparations for the WSOP I'm trying to play a lot of STT. I got in 16 10 person $3.40 turbos on Stars and ran 3/1/1/11 for a net ROI of +10.29%.Fooled around with a few MTT, cashed in a couple micro 5CD, did not do much else.May Goals50 STT, same limit with a positive ROI.3500 micro NL cash hands with a solid winrate.My WSOP trip details are almost all fleshed out, so as the month nears its end I will probably add on more stuff that I think will help me prepare.

Hey guys this is my first time setting a goal for myself within this topic. Bit of background real quick....deposited 55 on stars in oct played exclusively tournies and sng's mostly 5 dollar 27 mans, up and down like a roller coaster. played a 8 dollar mtt and got 4 had my br up to 600. probably two months of playing tounies and couldnt really get anything going, had basically a meltdown, had major leaks in my tourny strategy, mostly fancy play syndrome, and i am playing generally low stakes games, 180 sng's stuff like that.... crash all the way down to 100 bucks by the end of january. Decided I hate all things tourny related and sng's restart basically at .01/.02 NL and make the decision to abide by very strict br management. grind it up and play .02/.05 NL when i get to 120 bucks (had a 20 buy in br rule) grinded it to 200 moved to .05/.1 NL had a rough start went back down built up went back to .05/.1. grinded for all of march in that stake trying to get to 500 in my br. grinded finally got there moved to 25NL.... ran good and destroyed the game 2 weeks went up to 1k in my bras it stands right now i have 1.4k in my br and recently bought cardrunners. i am playing 50NL and playing any tourny where i have 100 buy ins or more.... I play mostly cash cuz i feel my edge is the biggest there and as u see i have definately had success in cash. tournies are mostly for fun. havent played the rebuys really and still want a bigger roll before i start playing the rebuys.Goals for May:Do my best to work my roll to 2k.Purchase PT and PAHUD and become proficient in both programs.Once i figure out PT and PAHUD reach a 8bb/100 (if it isnt already at that point) I really think it is close here at 50NL the play is definately tougher.Oh and become goldstar on PS

Well, haven't played nearly as much as I wanted to in the first 3 days, due to some other stuff coming up during my playing hours, but maybe, just maybe I can run like this all month? :PAlso cleared about $100 in rb and bonus.Posted Image

I have surprisingly been able to get in almost 2000 hands so far in the first three days of may. I am running at about 8ptbb/100 playing 50NL. Hopefully, I am able to keep up both the number of hands played and winrate. How do you guys make these graphs?
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

I failed miserably with my April goals. Began April with a $790 BR, finished with about $500.I'm not sure what to write for May goals. May is off to a good start, +$100 so far. It would just be nice to have a winning month for a change.Cheers all, and gl.

April started half way, began the Royal Run to 10k and as everyone knows, when u start trying to tae somethng serious, u end up running bad, so of course i had a pretty flat ending to april.May should be good, I've re-tooled my cash game play, i started with just over 1 full buy-in for 1/2NL, and playing 100% safe. if i get up 100 or more, i assess the situation, the players at the table, and cash out.As i do not recommend playing the way i have been as strategy for long term, it is definitely a great beginner and amateur strategy (I'll post it in a new blog)May i would love to be up 2k. I'm into the 4th week now with 21 weeks left and my BR is now at $910.00If i can be at 2500 by end of may i think i'm on track to make the goal.

My god I fucking hate poker.Posted ImageThis is weird though, it's not all in the right order, half of this is from Crypto, and half of it is from AP, but the timestamp on the Crypto hands is like GMT or something, so it completely ****s it up when compared to the EST used on AP... anyways, then ending is accurate.
