    Kicking It Up A Notch

    Itís the beginning of a new month, so itís time for a new goal. Last month my goal was to win $3k. This month will be the same. Mid-November I was well on my way to achieving the goal, and then I had a very good day when I won a MTT along with a few SNGs. And then I bought Black OpsÖ The combination of the two caused me to lose motivation and I played very little poker the rest of the month.

    December will be different. Hereís a breakdown of my goal.
    -Win $3k by playing mainly SNGs with a few MTTs and cash games mixed in.

    -Work through my reading list

    * Harrington on Online Cash Games
    * The Poker Blueprint
    * The Poker Mindset
    * Moshman's SNG book

    When I finish each I may include a brief review if people are interested.

    -Post more on the forums to help keep others motivated for their goals

    Iíll post daily stats and weekly graphs along the way. Maybe some interesting hands as they come along.

    Iíve noticed in othersí goal threads some people give their poker history, so here is mine. Feel free to skip if you want. I started playing online when I was 16. I won $5 from a freeroll and worked it up to a few thousand. In high school, I spent study hall reading poker books rather than doing homework. I wasnít making tons of money, but it was enough to keep me from having to get a McJob. I should have been working on building a bankroll but instead spent it on things I really didnít need. In college I played online as well, but I wasnít as excited about poker as when I first got into it. My biggest regret from college isnít studying more or getting better grades but is not playing more poker. Iíve put in a lot of time studying NLHE tourneys and would consider myself an ďSNG specialist.Ē My ROI is 18% and greater than 20% if you donít include turbos. Currently, Iím studying to move to NL cash games, and my overall goal is to be making enough to travel and play poker wherever I want.

    Today I put in a few games and came out ahead $96.20.
    Todayís Profit: $96.20
    Monthly Total: $96.20

    I like the strategy
    "And Shepherds we shall be. For thee, my Lord, for thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."
