Diamond *** blakkman08 2k19 goals and progress thread ***

oh hi there

this is gonna be another one of my yearly progress threads, where many mtts shall be played, many binks shall be screenshotted and hopefully many goals shall be reached.

for those of u who dont know me (welcome to these forums ) heres the gist:

i play MTTs online for a living. 2019 will be my 9th fulltime year, 8th of pure mtts. i ve documented all these years in threads just like this one. started played cash and switched to low stake mtts, was staked for 6 months, rest been on my own roll. played high stakes to very little success lifetime, been crushing midstakes throughout. was injured midway through last year and am still recovering, shoulders are super annyoing to injure it turns out

i will use this thread just like last year to set and evaluate goals on the short term as well as some that shall encompass the entire year. i m not a fan of making freerolls if i fail so sorry in that regard but feel ree to remind me to post in case i end up slacking (usually dont end up doing so, somehow still love this game )

i tend to post lobby screenshots of my sesion highlights and not too much else, in case i go travellingi ll post the odd trip report or two.

lifetime timbey results because everybody likes a giraffe:



goal is to get that badboy up to 7 figures asap

alright so having gotten that thing outta the way here s the goals for the upcoming year...

poker goals for 2019

[ ] play 145 sessions (sounds like not much but every session is 11+ hours of high intensity multitabling)

[ ] play an abi of $110 over the year (was $78 in 2018)

[ ] total buyins of >$700k

[ ] 4 verbal reviews every month

[ ] go over 30 tagged hands every week (legit only started marking hands two weeks ago and suprise its a great way to study)

[ ] in general dont be too nitty with game selection and play the game s i m supposed to to maximize my ev

[ ] play live poker in 2 countries that are not austria (really gotta make an efort to get comfortable playing this going forward)

a bunch of jibber jabber but i wanted to note these down in order to have something to review. the things above would make for my biggest ever poker year by a solid margin, and my most productive as well, while leaving space to achieve what arguably is the more important goals...

non poker goals for 2019

[ ] get into the best physical shape i ve ever been in (includes indurance)

[ ] reduce out of house eating further/ increase % of food cooked

[ ] do laundry every week ( i m so bad at this currently)

[ ] make a conscious effort to not waste time, ther always is somehting productive to do.

that should about cover my aspirations for the next year. the number of sessions i intend to play leaves plenty of time to actually be human, meet people, travel and just have a good time, again requires not being a caveman, something i wanna make a conscious effort to avoid being.

that should do for the intro, specific january week 1 goals will follow in my next post.

HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE

Happy Christmas, glad you enjoyed it. Which vitamins have you been taking? D/Omega 3?
AMEN. honestly i havent been looking into it too much, going in i plunked down an amount of fiat i was comfortable investing as a noob and havent cashed any out and probably wont until it reaches its last ATH at which point i ll just take out the initial fiat amount to be freerolling going forward. noob strat but works for me.

as for vitamins : D , B and Iron as i remembered to have had low blood iron levels a couple years back. not looked into omega but i k ow ppl talk good stuff about that. should i get on that?

Subbed, of course!

Best of luck in 2019. I have been following along for a year with a few posts now and again, but this will be my first year grinding "full time" without a job alongside my play so hopefully I see you in the streets some (my higher BIs and your lower, but still always fun to see one of the 2p2 heroes during the grind) and just wanted to say: appreciate the transparency of your threads and there has been a lot of great info about scheduling and table counts and game selection along the way that will definitely serve me well as I transition into full time grinding for at least the next year. So hope you crush it this year and know these threads are appreciated, I am sure by many.

Peace

thnaks for the warm welcome fellas. played my first sesh of 2019 today and went balls to the wall playing literally everything 55$-530$ from 4pm until 2am. and a few 33 and 20 turbos hypers in the end. wanted to see how many buyins i can get in if i go for it and its pretty solid at 5.6k after selling some action, sure theres a few series going on but tbh in terms of total buyins it was actually just a normal monday.

it has to be noted that the worse i run the more buyins i ccan actually get in as if i start running deep in my first 16 mtts i never get the chance to reg anything else. so you can imagine that given i played everyhting i ran quite poorly thorughout the grind. think i played alright although not exactly happy with my stats. managed to get a 3rd in a 50€ bowl on winamax and this to save the day:



usually dont post 2nd places BUT first grind first screenshot has to happen

ran really well to actually come 2nd as i was completely card dead on the final table. made it as chipleader and folded everything. yay.
day off tomorrow and then gonna get in another grind friday and then sunday i imagine

peace
