  • bhoylegend's 2014 Goals!

    It's taken a while to arrive at what I want to achieve next year. Last years goals were nothing worthwhile so next years will be something a little bit more thought out.

    Long Term Goals

    I will become a better player by studying for longer and playing less poker, but better quality poker, I will make Silverstar every month with a target of $1000 for the year and 5000 VPP's which will net a further $100 in Bonuses.

    Monthly Goals

    I will play 40,000 hands. 30,000 of these will be at the lowest level of 6 max, 2NL Zoom tables. 10,000 at 5NL regular tables. Based on this months play that should be enough to see me make Silverstar each month. I will make at least $21 a week (On average) to enable me to reach my Long Term Goal.

    Weekly Goals

    I will play 10 hours a week.

    I will play 10,000 hands a week.

    I will post a minimum of two hands a week for analysis. I will attend live training. I will seek to submit my play to outside review (Live Training being the intention subject to a trainer being willing to do it). I will actively note take during and after sessions.

    These goals are achievable, I believe. I can and will be able to track the goals. Should I overachieve, I will take sensible shots at 10NL, I've played at this level of Full-Ring which I was winning at.

    Thanks.

          Thanks Sandtrap. I took some guidance from your 2013 goals thread so I have to thank you for that too. It's different stakes I am playing obviously but the long term intention is to move through the levels once I have built up some confidence and experience. As for my goals, I have submitted my December challenge hands for review by a trainer, and if that goes ahead I hope to close some leaks I may have and continue with the parts of my game that are good. Sometime in the second half of the year I will probably seek another review. So on that front, I have already made progress on my goals. As for actual playing, played some today, just a few hundred hands as I am suffering with a libation induced nausea. Ended up with a couple of BI in profit. I will keep the main updates in this thread to a Sunday evening when the Poker week comes to an end. Probably throw in some interesting hands and stats.

              Oh yes, I see that now - was lurking in here too, but that little detail must have escaped my attention Was thinking you'd do really well at 6-max, which is why I was wondering if maybe that's where you were going to concentrate your play. Cool that you have the option of playing full ring too, just for a change of pace when the mood strikes. I have a feeling you'll be reaching your goals a lot earlier than anticipated GL GL bhoy!! umbup:

                I certainly hope so. My New Years hangover eased a little so played a little more and finished a bb short of 5BI ahead at the 2NL tables. So off to a nice start. Lower BI than I have played but I like the player pool there and at 10NL I tended to quit sessions early when I was ahead so made around the same at 2NL as I did at a lot of my 10NL sessions.

                  Best of luck Bhoy!

                  Out of curiosity, how many tables do you play to have 1000 hands per hour? As 12 tabling FR I usually go around 700 hands. Is it due to the fact that you play 6max Zoom?

                    At Zoom 6 max I am averaging about 1100-1200 per hour playing 4 tables.

                    At 10NL regular tables I seemed to be averaging about 500 hands an hour while 8 tabling. So, about two hours would be getting me a 1000 hands while 8 tabling.

                    Thanks for the good wishes.

                        Sometimes it can still feel good to have a losing day, when you've played like an idiot, then grinded your way back:



                        Any hands where anyone watching it, without context, will just think you are a complete weirdo I hear you ask?

                        Why, yes, here you go:

                          Update:

                          Profit/Loss Current Month: $21.09
                          Hands Played: 9086
                          VPP's earned: 139.39 (Including Jumpstart 265.56)

                          I have also played some $1.50 SnG's over the last week. I have played 8 of them and won 3 for a small profit of $3.45. Given how few of these I play, I have actually been doing quite well at them, looking at my Sharkscope graph for this game type I have been on a hot run. As well as winning 3, I bubbled two, and in the others I generally got the money in ahead but lost. So this will probably be a game variant I will add into my play.

                          If I include the SnG hands I am probably somewhere close to my 10,000 hand goal for the month.

                          I don't want to fill this thread with too many hands but I will post the biggest (By way of bb's won) pot of the week.
