  • Fadyen's (Time Vault) Goals for 2013

    This is my entry for the Time Vault Challenge.

    Playing a mix of all games and game types, but mainly NLHE SnG's with some MTT's, I hope to achieve the following during 2013. I'm trying not to be too figures/results orientated but I will, as time goes on, record my progress and set goals to try and improve in that department.

    General Goals

    - My general goals for the year are to improve as a player of all kinds of poker, my main focus however being on NLHE, Razz and PLO. This will be done by playing more, watching videos and going to live trainings and review my and others hands.
    - Try different SnG's to find which best suits me and which give the best ROI.
    - Starting with my bankroll of about $100, I hope to increase it to over 4 figures by the end of the year.
    - Using sensible bankroll management I intend to increase the level at which I'm playing to a higher buy-in.
    - By doing the above I intend to increase my monthly VPP's every month (which I will record) and get my VIP status up to at least a regular Silver level.
    - Record and review my progress on a more regular basis in order to learn and adjust.
    - Win a large field (over 1000 entrants) MTT.

    Weekly Goals

    - Play (when possible) at least 5 days a week.
    - Have one day a week dedicated to nothing but grinding.
    - Have one day dedicated mainly to poker education (watching videos/ live training/ hand analysis).
    - Have one day a week with NO POKER at all. (rest is important)

          Well so far so good with my challenge. Made a few realisations while reading other people's blogs and goals and I think it's really helped me, but more on that in my end of month blog which will be up next week, watch this space.

          Since things are going well I'm thinking about trying to satty in to a few tourneys this sunday, probably the storm. Hope to see my fellow PSOers smashing it with me! Maybe even a little last longer for a dollar to make it interesting?

            Well it's the end of the month and so far my challenge is going well. From my starting bankroll of $100 I'm up to about $140. As far as my VPP goal is going I'm a little behind at only 150 which is less than my usual amount but I think that has something to do with me playing my cash games on Full Tilt now. For a more detailed update you can check out my blog which should be up some time tonight and will include a few choice hands and stories about my month. Hope you guys can check it out umbup:

                Mainly $1.50 fifty50's. There will be some info on that in my blog and next month I'm planning to do some detailed recording on my volume of play and ROI. Would be nice if other people would do the same and maybe we can discuss some bankroll building strategy.

                  Holy s**t! Big news! It would appear I am one of the lucky few to win a ticket from the Sunday Million club. Thank you PSO!

                  Not sure when I'm gonna use the ticket but when I do I'll let you all know how things went and if things go well I might ask one of the lovely trainers to review it for me. Who knows

                      Well February is well and truly started and so far it's been a bad month. Since I started recording my results of my main game, the 50fifty's, I've been on a massive losing streak. Going to switch it up to cash for a day or 2 and see if I can get some run good going. Don't have a HUD but I will make a note of my profit/loss and number of hands played to start getting some idea how I'm playing.

                      On another note I have a new goal for February, to be the player of the series for the newly announced February Freezeout series. I'm hoping to play most of the tournaments even though some are not my time zone friendly but I'll work around it for the chance to play some triple stud lol. In addition to this if PSO decides to have some sort of player of the year base on all the series' they do this year I'll be going for that too. I'm fired up so good luck to those who try and challenge me for it!

                        Hi Fayde,

                        Congratulations on the Sunday million ticket if you lets us know when you are playing I'm sure you will get a ton of railers.

                        Quick question You had said you will own the triple stud title, do you play any of teh triple stud MTT, or cash tables?

                        Personally I like Triple stud but find in torniments the blinds fly up too fast plus i play high low like an Uber Nit

                          I like to play a few of the low buy-in Triple Stud and Razz MTTs as well as 0.04/0.08 Razz cash. Find that going for chips with the low is a good way to gain chips since less people play these variants (well). I tend to nit up a little during the Stud part though lol.

                              Thanks for the support! Not sure when I'll be playing the Sunday Million yet, need to find a Sunday where I'm not busy and can focus on it. At the moment getting some practice in by playing in the Open Skill League for the first time. Have to say the field in general is shockingly bad. For my first one I got into the top 500 and still got donked out by some maniac, oh well. Playing a second one now and it's down to about 1600, getting a bit short stacked though. If all goes well might try and get a few bucks out of the league.
