Re: Staking and Getting Healthy: 2012

So, I will be making another thread for sure in 2013. It seems like a lot of people like it, and it also is good for me as well to write stuff down every so often.

2012 was an ok year for me overall.

Health:

This was a pretty big fail. have kinda ranted out this in the past and dont really feel like doing it again. I will be trying it all over again in 2013 as i am starting to get a bit older (27) and my health needs to be a priority for me. Staking takes up a lot of my time, but its not like i cant find time to do something every day. A few of my friends have put up some cash in the form of a free roll for me to get to 220 by the end of the year (Elio and Mouldyonions on stars). If i complete my task i would use the cash to travel to europe probably and do something fun.

My own poker playing:

I played a decent amount live and did relatively well. WSOP MTTs was a pretty big disaster, but had a good time. Live cash has gone pretty well though, so no real complaints. I kinda wish i was around St. Pete full time so i could play all the live games around here and see what i could make over a whole year, but this wont happen anytime soon. Online play has been pretty meh all year. I am pretty much forced to play so stars lets me transfer funds around, and that never really works out well. I sometimes really have the itch to play, but once i get started i never really want to anymore. When i was in Cabo, my room mate was learning PLO and that was pretty nice. We would play 100 Zoom PLO and would play pretty hard vs each other which created a nice dynamic since we were usually in the same room when this happened. If he was grinding zoom, i usually played so i could try and stack him a few times. I was an overall loser online this past year for maybe 5k er so (guessing).

Staking:

I think it went pretty well overall. I am sure there is always bias when looking at at results of your "own". I dont think we did nearly as good as we could have, but think we are going in the right direction. We got a really solid group of guys at the moment and are always evolving how we do things in terms of staking to try and be the best staking group we can be. I have learned a lot this year in terms of staking, and i hope next year i can learn just as much. At some point there will be an exit strategy put in place, but i dont see it happening anytime soon. I guess the plan is to get around 15 high stakes guys and around 15-20 mid stakes guys who we think can improve and be really good at some point. A live score would be nice as well. we are down so much live, ha ha.


this is from a thread in MTTc about my goals for 2012:

Goals for 2012

[ ] Staking 75 guys consistently ---Nope. Prolly could have gotten to this, had i tried. But, our focus has shifted a bit lately.

[ ] Have a horse make a major live FT. Live sweats seem like they would be the best. ---Yeah. one got 7th and the other guy won the mtt. the one who got 7th we had 100%, and one who got first we only had 25%. was a fun sweat though.

[ ] Have enough money to do whatever. ---success, i guess. i dont really want to do much. i can go out to eat whenever/travel whenever.


[ ] Get down to 220lbs ---not close

[ ] Make sure to try and experience new things. Dont be lazy and actually get out and do things. ---did a few things, but def need to do more.

[ ] Gf...? ---nopeeeeeeeee

[ ] heat...? ---yyyyyyyyyyes




Thanks everyone for following this thread. I am glad you enjoyed it and thanks for participating in it as the year has went on.
