I am a 20 yr old full time player. I started playing poker with friends when i was 13, and started to become a winner when i found and joined these forums (2 yrs ago).
Before 6 months ago i was a fairly low volume player, and while i was getting better i wasn't putting that much effort into my game. Over the past few months i have been speaking alot to some very good players (Risk2dupside, brad2002tj, EeeTee2008, p3rc4) and working on getting alot better.
I have also started using a hud more often, about a month ago, and within the last 3months (with 2 months of actual play) i have managed to play nearly 2500 180's+ (about 50/50 mtts/180's). My goals for the summer are 4k games played, and for the year i plan on making top 200 in the stars TLB so i may qualify for some cool freerolls. I am currently ranked 1538, i have never been in the top 1000 for monthly, much-less yearly.
The Poker Goals:
I am backed by a professional player and was just recently moved up. I will now be running a 15-30$ abi (goal is 20-25) and my goal is to have a 15-25% roi over my volume during the summer. I will also be playing the sunday million every sunday that i play. I would like to have at least 1 deep run in it this year.
Become a winnar on ftp!
Platinum star this summer, supernova by the end of 2011.
Win the prop bet that i will be running.
I have made many deep runs in large field 11's, 22's, 55's, 109's, 200's, 11r's, 3r's, 5's, ect ect without ever making a final table (like prolly 20+ top 18's), thus one of my other goals will be my first win in a large feild 11$+ and hopefully by the end of the yr i'll have my first 5 figure score.
obtain more students (currently have 6, i charge 15$ an hour and all of my students have greatly improved results) and gain the respect and reputation i need so i may charge more and have more of a demand for my coaching abilities. With more coaching i will be able to pay rent and bills more easily without having to worry about variance.
I also plan on giving daily updates to some degree and will be posting some fun/interesting hands.
: I plan on waking up every day at 8am, working out for 1 hour, cleaning up and eating then starting my sessions at 10am for every day but sunday, which i will sleep an extra hour.
I am currently paying my own rent/bills and living on my own and i just moved to a new place near Milwaukee to be closer to my boyfriend. I currently have no friends in the area but i do have lots of family, i plan on taking at least 1 day off a week but nor more then 2. I need to find some friends in the area and have some form of active life outside of poker and my BF/fam.
I also need to start working on my novel more, it'll never get finished at the rate im working on it. So i plan on dedicating 4 hours a week to writing.
By the time im 25 i desire to be a Pokerstars Pro, a published author, and have a nationally selling novel.
