Seting monetary goals will only fk with your head.
You will start chasing loses and playing more scared money,no good will come of it imo.
the numbers i gave are there to give you a board idea. So if you experience 100% ROI, don't start thinking you're the new poker god and order a new ferrari, you're just on a short term heater. And if you experience a 0% ROI or lower over a long time, it probably means you need to perfect your game.
Good goals should not be end results in $$. It should be
- number of games you play
- books to read and hands to post for analysis here
- theoretical concepts to master, like ICM theory and push/fold strategy if you're into SNGs
and the ROI you experience over a large sample of games (hundreds will be needed) will essentially be a way to assess how good you are at the game.
