  • Goals 2013 Grade b

    This is my entry for time vault.

    Here is a copy of my newer goals for 2013.
    Yearly Goal

    By the end of 2013 I would like to be a more knowledgeable NLHE able to regularly beat the micro stakes level. My goal is to be comfortably playing 2 levels higher than where I start from on Jan 1st (starting at the 5 cent level do like to be playing and beating the 16 cent level by 31st Dec) I will do this by Reading poker books, Attending live trainings, and making use of the video archive at PSO.

    Monthly goals

    • Watch 4 Videos.
    • Read for 8 hours
    • Attend 4 relevant live trainings (where my schedule does not allow me to attend I will add to number of videos I watch.)
    • Do 4 hours of hand reviews on my own play.

    Weekly goals
    • Play in sessions that do not last beyond an hour without a break (ring games)
    • Play no more than 16 hours per week. (ring games)( The hours will be relaxed during holidays, to no more than 25.)
    • 1 hours hand review (PT4)
    • 2 hours reading
    • Attend 1 live training
    • Watch 1 Video
    • Play SnG / MTTs within my budget


    I start 2013 with a bankroll of just over $166 Plus 12 Daily dollar tickets and one little big tournament ticket . I have also qualified for the Premier League in January.

    I will split my bankroll like this for January
    $150 - Ring games (starting at 5nl see below)
    $16 - SnG - Playing the 25 cent games
    tickets - as per game

    Bank Roll Management

    Ring Games*
    I'm Starting at 5nl but will drop to 2NL if my Bankroll falls below $100
    then shot at 10NL with bank roll of $240 fall back at $200
    $464 shot at 16NL, but have to move down to 10NL fall back $400
    $740 first shot at 25NL, but have to move down to 16NL fall back to $640
    $1200 first shot at 50NL, but have to move down to 25NL fall back to $1000

    STT
    30 buy-ins

    SnG Multi table & MTT's**
    45 man - 30 buy-ins
    90 man - 50 buy-ins
    MTT's - 100 buy-ins
    45 man turbo - 45 buy-ins
    90 man turbo - 90 buy-ins
    180 man turbo - 180 buy-ins
    MTT turbo - 200 buy-ins

    Good luck to everyone in 2013 may all your decisions be the right ones.

      Thank you Sandtrap,

      Full credit goes to you I used your format from last year to plan my goals and for the new members here who might not know, a lot of us including me were inspired by your 2012 and 2013 goals.

        Good luck with it b!

        You might want to up the 45 and 90 man tourneys though. If you go for 30 buy-ins... I've had multiple variance runs OVER 20 games.

          Thank you JWK,

          I will definitely take a look at that when I'm ready to move out of the 25 cent games.

              (hand 2) Again from zoom, both players are fairly straight forward ABC TAGS as is the BB. Do I have the odds to call and set mine here or given my rotten position do i let this go? Grade b

                  Hey Grade,

                  First hand, I'm no worried, at least not at this point. I would put him with a pair or high cards. You should run it a little bit longer so we can guess our next move.

                  Second hand, just my opinion here, I would call. My reason is that we are 3 players in the pot and if I catch a 5, I have pot control and if not, I'll check and fold if necessary. Besides, it represents only 5% of your stack, so it's worth the investment and don't let the big stacks scare you.

                  GL

                    Hi sand thanks for the thoughts, Run the AA to the river 55 hand I did call didn't really look at the stack sizes (something else for me to look at i guess) Grade b

                      New hand only played 105 hands today, In a nice hotel though. Wanted to share this hand as its a positive one and those were a bit few and far between this week. HaND 3 Both Villian's where playing as total maniacs and my image to this point was a total NIT. Grade b

                            Dear John,

                            Not that there was any question that you were right but i'm on a 12 game losing skid in the 25 cent games right now!!

                            so an official change to my BRM of 100 buy ins for the 45 and 90 man games seem very very sensible.
