  • My 2013 Poker Goals (Kjernekar)

    My 2013 Poker Goals
    I have two goals for this year, firstly I’d like to make a profit of $10,000. Secondly I’d like to achive Supernova VIP status.


    My Plan
    I’ll be starting with a $50 bankroll, and I’ll be grinding up through the micros. My primary games will be SnGs and Zoom. I’ve set the following bankroll rules for myself:

    IF BR < $50:
    $0.25 45-Player SnG

    IF BR < $100:
    $0.50 45-Player Turbo SnG
    2NL Zoom

    IF BR < $150
    $1.00 90-Player Turbo SnG
    $1.10 MTT
    5NL Zoom

    IF BR < $250
    $1.50 9/18/45-Player Turbo SnG
    5NL Zoom

    IF BR < $350
    $1.50 9/18/45-Player Turbo SnG
    $2.50 180-Player Turbo SnG
    $2.20 MTT
    5NL Zoom

    IF BR < $700
    $3.50 9/18/45-Player Turbo SnG
    $3.30 MTT
    $5.50 MTT
    10NL Zoom

    IF BR < $1500
    $7.00 9/18/45-Player Turbo SnG
    $8.80 MTT
    $11.00 MTT
    10NL Zoom

    IF BR > $1500
    $15.00 9/18/45-Player Turbo SnG
    25NL Zoom
    0.25/0.50 CAP

    That’s my poker goals for 2013, except one. I’d like to be able to make a living playing poker. It would be an awesome way for me to spend more time on skydiving.

    As for non-poker related goals I need to get in shape and lose some weight, I’ve been gaining a lot of weight since last summer. And most likely I will need to get a new job before the end of April. But it’s important that the job fits with the live-training schedule.

    Good luck with your goals for 2013 everyone!


    Sincerely,

    Thomas aka Kjernekar

          Nice looking plan

          I will have to start looking at the lobbies of the 45 mans and where possible start avoiding the PSO grinders there.

          Should be easy for me as i only play 4 a day 2 at a time rather than grind out hard like some.

          How many games do you normally have on the go at one time?

              Thank you, I really like the "Time Vault" challenge. Keeping a public record will help me police myself, and stick to the plan

              I usually keep registering SnGs until I reach 20 active tables. Since the 25 cent games aren non-turbo I go for twice that (although I find it hard to reach 40 tables, I seem to bust faster than I can register).

              When I reach my set number of tables, I stop registering and play until I'm done with all the tables. As to avoid to many shorthanded tables.

              I was actually thinking my first blog post should be about multi tabling.


              Regards,

              Thomas

                          It's amazing how some people can play as many as 20 tables & still make a profit. Don't you keep timing out?

                          Anyway, this is a really interesting challenge & I'm looking forward to following your progress. It'd be an amazing acheivement to make $10,000 & Supernova from a $50 bankroll! I wish you the best of luck!

                            Thank you,

                            I don't have a big problem with timing out on tables, but sometimes I do. But because of external distractions like YouTube or Facebook.


                            Regards,

                              Profit: $18.39

                              Chillipops asked if I could help him make a spreadsheet for tracking his SnG games. So if anyone else who doesn't have tracking software is interested in a copy, let me know.

                              Here's a screenshot:
