Hello fellow PSOers, 

I've been a long time reader here at PSO but only recently have i decided to starting playing more of an actie role, this decision coincides with my determination to put alot more time and effort into my game in 2012. Up until this point poker has been something i do for recreation around my other hobbies and as an excuse to catch up with mates, thats all going to change. 

In the past 3 years ive been a member of the Pokerstars community i have lost ~$200, much of this in the last 6 months or so when i started playing more regularly. This leads me into my next point which are my goals for 2012:

1) Finish the year showing an overall profit.
2) Commit at least 10 hours a week to increasing my poker knowledge and skill
3) Play at least 30 hours online poker per week
4) Play at least one live game a week
5) Still have fun and nuture my passion for the game.

So there you have it, you now know what i want out of poker this year and ill try and keep you updated as i go along. I have decided to start this new year off with a fresh $100 deposit and play the $1.50 90-man KO SNG's. I have done ok in these tournaments in the past but have never had the bankroll to be able to deal witih the varience so hopefully i can do better this year. 

As far as bankroll management goes im not to fussed about dropping down stakes if i hit a bad swing but if i reach the $350 mark i will step up to the $3.50 SNG's. Depending on other commitments i may also play the occasional sunday storm satelite and if successful would cash out for T money..

Good to finally get this out of the way and i hope you enjoy following my progress..
