    My 2013 Poker Goals
    primiray goal

    cashout of $200 each month(i will be cashing out keeping atleast $100 in BR)

    reach goldstar status

    seconday goal

    reach supernova staus and win big mtt

    My Plan

    current level

    I’ll be starting with a $217.65 and $11.05 $T bankroll, and I’ll be grinding up through the micros. My primary games will be $0.10/0.20 limit holdem and small mtt other than any nl game(mainly 2-7 triple draw triple stud razz stud hi/low stud high) except 8 game nl 2-7 single draw nl 5 card draw with buyin ranging upto $3.30.

    I’ve set the following bankroll rules for myself:

    bankroll< 100 avoid any tourney and play limit holdem following 300 BB bankroll managment

    move to next level when bankroll reach $1000.and follow 2000 BB BR managment for limit holdem and 200 buyin for tourney

    A blog is there to write whatever you want, really...

    I'll tell you what I've done personally, then I suggest you open the other threads and check each poster's blog, surely should give you an idea or two.

    Personally I'm using the forum to update, I try to log something daily at the end of the session, then regular weekly updates, you know, more day to day stuff, graph, numbers, hands, the such.

    I'm reserving the blog for more chunky stuff, when I want to flesh out an idea, for an instance, I wanted to do a proper introduction and I've done it there, followed by a post about my goals and another one where I've detailed my plans for bankroll management.

    Probable future topics for my blogs are probably going to be what I really think about win rate and an in-depth analysis of how I deal with tilt, plus I've got some ideas on the side which I'm leaving there yet as I'm too busy.

    All the above said, just write what you want.

        Don't hope anything, just do it, even if it doesn't come out right where's the problem? Everyone makes mistake, the important thing is not being afraid of making them, as long as you learn from them.

              GL m8! I do know dfpb wich is an Heads up Display real time and for free but I'm not sure if it can summarise hands, + you can get Universal Replayer for reviews but you should make the investment, it's a good one umbup:

                Day 2 started with 259 played few mtt some tcoop razz sattelite(bubble turbo so fast) well nothing great breakeven or $1-2 loss in mtt played around 2500 hand in limit holdem made a profit roughly $36 overall i had a profit end roll .....295 nothing great in this hand as i am more interested on river bet ...the river card gave a top kicker which give a chance to bet one river..if it was 10 or less i would have checked the river..what you think?
