OK, so last month's goals:
1 - Re-read Read 'em and Reap
, keep practicing tell identification with televised poker games
. Let's say add tells
on 20 new players to the database, so it's quantifiable.
Achieved, think I'm starting to make some real progress on the tells side of things. Haven't had many chances outside drunken home games to try them out live though. Still, the tells some of the pros give off on TV are fascinating...
2 - Stick to my +ROI games. So no HU LOLmaha, no HORSE, no Razz ring games and no MTTs (I'll make an exception for MTTs with an FPP buy-in if I feel the need to scratch that itch). If it weren't for them I would've had a winning month last month.
Also achieved, with some pretty sweet results if I do say so myself:
<3 HU shootout upswings
3 - Play 100 SnGs.
Achieved - ended up playing 127. Not huge, I know, but it's a fairly big number for me.
4 - Find a new job (not poker related... though I guess poker could get in the way )
OK, so I failed on the non-poker goal. Oh well
So for September, let's try:
1 - Add another dozen tells from televised games to the database. Bonus points if I can find at tell on one of the following: Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, Greg Raymer, Adam Junglen, Sam Farha, Erick Lindgren or *gulp* Chris Ferguson
2 - Stay with my current +ROI games for another month
3 - Play 125 SnGs, and don't lose back what I won this month
