Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

I'd like to go a whole live session and at the end of it be able to say to myself, win or lose, "wow, I don't think I played one hand completely retardedly!". Basically, I'd like to go a session without having a hand that I'd feel embarrassed about posting here.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

Maybe I should have done this last month.

1. Four consecutive sessions where I play well the entire session.

2. Have one winning session.

3. No lose 14,000 ******* dollars playing ************* poker

Seriously--not be results-oriented, play well, and stop making river calls getting 10:1 when I know I'm 98% beat.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

I am returning to the US in Oct, live poker will be a feature of my trip.

I hope to play some solid live poker sessions, avoid boredom plays, avoid tilt plays.

Basically like Gobbledygeek I would like to walk away from a session knowing i played each hand as well as I possibly could.

You do realize that god only gives you a certain number of heartbeats. Between working out 25 times, telling mom and pop about the non-job and the bad beats, you may not crack 30.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

I don't think I've ever done this before so here goes.

1. 100k hands online.
2. Get back to playing 200nl by Oct 15th.
3. Continue exercising 4-5 times a week.
4. Post one interesting hand per week from the local 10 game.

Good luck to me, lol.

Wow, 10/20! You ever play that? The 6/12 game died at Cascades, I'm playing 4/8 at Boulevard until Cascades gets their crap together.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

See if I can repeat September experience. 60 hours of 8/16 @ 2BBs/hour. If I do, I will be moving up to 20/40. I guess the thing that has helped my game most is table selection. I am finding that it is the most important factor I have at improving my game.
I just love a table full of loose-passives.

Fixed your post. Playing in tough games is good for the mind, it's good for the soul.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

To get back on a little more regular schedule playing online. Rebuild my roll by playing within it's confines regardless of the urges for bigger $$ scores, focus on BB scores. Continue working on identifying small edges and exploiting them.
Play when I want to, not because I think I should.

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

Hmm a majority of my goals would be non poker related but here goes...

1. Not miss a single class
2. Work hard/perform well at new internship starting Oct 14th
3. Log 40 hrs of live poker in the month (I'm really lazy and never end up going to casinos)
4. Take at least 1 break per 3 hours of play
5. Setup a regular workout schedule
6. Feel good about every session played whether won or lost
7. Make more regular playing poker friends

Re: OFFICIAL OCTOBER GOALS THREAD

1. Get Promoted at Work
2. Finally run well for more than one session in a row
3. Limp Re-raise UTG at least once
4. Quit Dip
5. Convince Girlfriend that Poker is not Evil

#2 will likely help out #5
#3 is just fun that I don't do often (JTs is the one I'm looking to do it with)
#4 because honestly High School Sports are over
#1 is just plain overdue (spending time on 2+2 probably hurts)

160K hands? Are you serious? 5000 hands per day? That's like, what, 10 hours a day of 6 tabling. Can you explain how this is possible? I thought like 30K hands was a big month for online players.
