How to set Poker Goals
Setting yourself a weekly target of hands played, tournaments played or allocated study time is always a good start.
For example, if you wanted to play 5,000 Zoom hands per month, first calculate how many Zoom hands are roughly played per hour. Then add into the calculation the number of tables you play and the number of days you play.
|Game Type||Hands or Games per hour||2 tables||4 tables|
|ZOOM||200 hands||400 hands||800 hands|
|6 Max Cash||100 hands||200 hands||400 hands|
|Spin & Go's||6 games||12 games||24 games|
|Sit & Go 9 Entries||1 game||2 games;||4 games|
|Sit & Go 6 Max Turbo||2 games||4 games||8 games|
As you can see from above if you were to four-table Zoom, that's 800 hands per hour - it would take you 12 and half hours to play 10,000 hands. It would be easy to fit twelve hours of play into one month for most players.
Or if you were to play two tables of Spin & Go's for three hours per day, three days a week. You'd calculate it like this. 12 games x 3 hours x 3 days = 108 games a week. Impressive numbers, that's 5,616 Spin & Go games a year.
Study time is also important when it comes to poker. If you were to study just 30 minutes a day, that's 30 minutes x 365 days = 182.5 hours a year! That would build some serious Poker skills!
