Making this to hopefully motivate myself to play more and try stick to my goals as I haven't wrote them down previously.

I'm getting a late start as I'm on holiday in Thailand and won't be home until 11th jan. (it's so sick here :) so I'm starting the year off great already after having the best new year eve party ever, full moon party on kohpagnan :D.

Ok so my goals are:

Increase volume

Increase ABI

Play more live including going to WSOP

Get HH's reviewed semi regularly by better players (0 last year)

Post more on forums as I lack in this and it's always one of my goals

I don't really want to make profit based goals. I think by making these goals my profit will increase anyway.

Will put few more details in once I'm home and have access to my volume/ABI/profit for last year so we can see what crack is proper.

Hope this thread will motivate others too.

Gl this year guys!

 

Edit:

Back from Thailand and starting the grind today,  up really early as my sleep schedule isn't where it should be right now and it's turbo night which I never get to play because it starts too late for me here in UK.

Stats for 2010 from sharkscope giving me something to compare to at the end of this year

For MTTs only

 

2,150 $32.11   $28   127% $69,044   N/A N/A Global Alias Year2010 Sch. Onlyguitey (FT)
onoitsguitey (ME)
guitey99 (CE)

For MTTs and SNGs

onoitsguitey (ME)
guitey99 (CE)
guitey (CK)
scg991 (PF)
guitey (PC)

 

I don't plan on playing too many SNGs, although will play 45/90's in my sessions sometimes.

 

I will also aim to play at least 50k hands of cash, played 44k hands last year at 3.13bb/100, so I want to improve on that also. 

 

I will update this post monthly with my progress.

January over and it was a really frustrating month. Got in some decent volume, esp with double guarantee week being multi entry but failed when deep a few times. Hoping for a much better February.

 

Sharkscope doesn't seem to track multi entry properly but overall volume was around 280 - 300 mtts played accoriding to OPR and sharkscope combined.

 

FTP OPR 24/210 ITM.  ABI $40.   ROI -43%

 

GUITEY99          64 $3.95   $39   9% $253   - N/A Cereus 1/1/2011 1/31/2011
scg991          7 -$19.38   $62   -65% -$136  

Also played 17147 hands of cash (50nl/100nl FR) at 0.09bb/100.

 

So a shitty month to start but gonna have a monster Feb!!!

Feb was a decent month, missed out on a couple big scores to 3 outers on big final tables but still a solid month.

 

I think sharkscope still doesn't account for multi entry MTTs as seperate tourneys so volume is a bit more. Pretty happy with volume and my ABI is up on last year too. Going well there so far.

2011 stats at top and Feb stats on bottom.

Only played 1700 hands of cash in Feb, taking total cash stats to 18918 hands played at 1.82bb/100

 

Looking to carry on the winning ways into March. I am playing the UKIPT at Manchester in March so hopefully bink that!

It is good you rebounded from Jan. Looks like you are sticking to your plan and that is what counts, keep grinding away. GLGL

Feb was my first losing month since April 2010 :(

 

my overall cashing percentage was about half, prolly because i bubbled about 10 tourneys, maybe more. i also ran bad on final tables and if it wasn't for 1 win, i would have been seriously in the hole. ran way below equity for the whole month. 

 

in spite of that i am actually feeling as good about my game as i ever have. 

 

here is to next month 😀

well i was right, march was up there with one of my best months 😀
won about 1300 at an ABI of $10 which is prolly my second best month ever, but i took down 2 tourneys and final tabled my biggest ever event (only to bust in 6th) but it turned around for me, and it felt awesome!
now to crush april as well 😀

The play is very loose, but overall pretty soft. You are fine to play as a european, you have to send in ID to get verified and able to cashout.

Nice score, I have noticed the more volume I play the better chance at making a profit as well. I loath my mundane scedule, never leaves enough time for poker, but I will find a way.  I had a real eye opener to this last Saturday when I played many games, except when I tried to multi-table 12 Rush tournaments that was a bad idea, nose started bleeding. GLGL hope to see more positive post.

I have booked to go out to vegas for 3 weeks in June and have 13 events planned although will not play every one with making day 2's, day 3's etc. should be a good time and hopefully meet some of you guys out there.

My computer blew up last Friday so I haven't played at all since then. Got it fixed and its working again now.

 

Didnt play any cash in May but made decent profit in MTT's. FT bubble the sunday majors on ongame and pokerstars.fr, deep runs in some mini FTOPS huge fields so could have been alot better. Must be saving the big ones for WSOP. I go to Vegas in 2 days. I won't be playing online now until I get back.

So I didnt make any money in June :/. But I had a lot of fun in vegas. Only managed a couple cashes at venetian, frustrating when you are playing well and can't win, but live poker is so slow and 3 weeks of play is like 1 day online so im not worried about it. It was good meetint the TPE guys out there too!

 

I got back yesterday, played for 90 mins on rush cash on FTP and this morning wake up to the news that FTP have lost there license and now the client won't even open. Luckily I cashed out the majority of my FTP money before I left because of some rumours I heard and it cleared while in vegas. Just have to wait and see if I get the $800 off there that I left on.

 

Hoping to crush some other sites in July tho and also play UKIPT Brighton in mid July. Feel good about my live game.

 

Gotta say gl to the TPE guys still in vegas and for the main event!

I started playing on Party in July, seems rly soft. Prize pools are a lot smaller but still some good tournaments to play on there. Also played the odd tournaments on other sites. Frustrating month really tho.

 

[Image Can Not Be Found]" alt="" />

 

Played 13k hands of cash on party to qualify for palladium staus. Also played a few thousand hands on pokerview. Made about $600 at cash.

 

August 3rd I played the $1650 GSOP live main event in Manchester but busted on day 1. The next day I chopped the £165 side event for £3255 heads up. It only got like 80 players but still a nice start to August.

 

The next day I got free entry to watch the Paul Scholes testimonial at Old Trafford in the Evolution suite :)

Shitty run in August, plenty of deep runs that just didn't work out.

 

Won $5k in my first September session tho so things are looking up. Won the $55, 10k for $3k and 2nd in the $20r for $2k, both on party.

 

Played like 600 hands of cash and won a small amount.

 

I have been going through tournaments and hands looking at where I could be improving so hopefully I can have a good September.

Slacked with this after I had troubles with my account here end of September.

I went on a big downswing when I came back from Vegas, maybe something to do with having to change sites schedules etc. cuz of FTP and UB, but managed to pull it back and finish off the year OK and I took a lot of time off this year too. so I am pretty happy.

 

I did improve a lot this year. I met most of my goals but didn't get any HH's reviewed and probably posted less on forums. Oh well, something to aim for this year again.

 

This year I am basically going to have the same goals. Increase volume and ABI and hopefully that increases my profit :) Got my first live tourney of the year on Saturday the 7th, 560 at DTD in Nottingham so hopefully start off with a bang.

 

Gl to everyone this year

I busted DTD bout half an hour before the end of the day. I built my stack up to 100k and sitting good. Lost like 6 pots with JJ+/AK and lost 99 to JJ for 20bbs. Just crushed my stack and reshipped A8 into AK.

 

Gl if you play the grand prix
