Bankroll competition open for everyone

This thread would be a kind of controll panel.
I heard in an audiobook that if you write down what you want you gain power. Dreams have no power. You can say "I wanna be a professional poker player", but that doesn't make sense. What does it mean professional? Making 100.000$ a year, or just to be listed at the Hendon Mob? So we need clear specified goals to reach what we want.
Here's the competition:
If you want to enter, first you need to decide your goal. The competition is about your bankroll, you should write down where you begin, and where you wanna end. For begginners it can be a goal to make from the 1$ freeroll winning 100$ in a month.
But you must choose a goal which you are not sure you can do it. What will challange you. You also have to write down a deadline for the reaching. (think in months or weeks)
As you write it down in this thread the others will be watching you, and you can't just loose your bankroll, coz that means a failure.
You can write down if you achieved 1/4 or 1/3 of your goal, and your getting closer, or if you are busted. If you reach the deadline you have to write down where you at. If you can make it, you can be proud of yourself, and we'll be proud also. CC needs players who can achieve their goals.
So this is gonna be fun, but you should take it seriosly. No re-deposits!

I like this post, and I hope it doesnt seem flippant when I say :-

'to win a wsop bracelet by 2020' :) it is wishful thinking of course!!

The reason why I like it, is because it highlights something fundamentality important. When you keep accurate records it is amazing how determined it makes you to achieve good results.

I want to qualify for a big tournament before the year is out.

Whether it be the EPT, WCOOP, or even the Sunday million but for that my goal would be to place in the money.

Long shot maybe but I'm going for it....

I find that results based goals, as in "I want to make x dollars by x time" isn't a good way of achieving for me. I have some performance based goals (not in that way) that I'd like to work on.

So my goal is to play within my bankroll, applying my planned risk management strategy in every session I play in until the end of the year. In achieving this goal I will reduce the damage of drawdowns and keep my equity swings manageable.

Well I had a nice run of bad luck, bad beats, frozen screens, you name it. Bankroll went down to $1.20 but with some masterful playing :) on the .01/.02 micro tables brought it up to $11. The games on!

I like this thread :) My goal is to get back the 10% I lost on my BR after a brutal run of cards by months end. I'll decide my growth rate once I achieve this initial goal!

My goal is to make my $88.80 into $300 by Oct.11th

I have actually just started keeping an accurate record of all the games I play so this should be fun for me. It's interesting that in 9 days and 27 tourneys that my starting BR of $97.70 has only dropped by $8.90
It was up as high as +$20.60 but I've run into a string of bubbles that I need to break through.

I'm new here but I'm up for this. My goal is to make my $20 deposit last year hold up until retirement. Actually my exact bankroll is $14.56. I want to turn it into $100 by...lets say...October 1st. My secondary goal is to be withdrawing $100 a month starting Christmas.

The only thing that'll stand in my way is the "GOOD DEALS" satellites offer.

I'd like to make my $17.60 turn into $500 by Xmas 06.....nice little xmas present there. As long as I stay away from royal vegas, I think I'll be fine.


PS: I played a Freeroll last night on Royal Vegas and ended up only playing 3 hands in an hour (and busted out on the 3rd one). I had 95 offsuit 6 times, 72 offsuit 5 times, 72 suited 3 times and lot of highcard-low card mixtures i.e Q3 K5 K2 J4 etc....had 2 pocket pairs 33 and 22 lol. What a sketchy tournament.

Anyways be that as it may, $500 by xmas....if i succeed, a round of drinks for everyone! :D

Nice run Jimbo! :)
Well, I know I started this thread and yeah we need clear goals, but did I say you can't change them? LOL
That 1000$ for me is faar away, at the moment i'm around 80$, but I couldn't play much, and I am ill now (yes, I'm the looser who has a flu in the summer - just cycle home in rain at 4am and you can have it too...)
So I'm still not playing that much.But I made it to an online 160$ final satellite for a live event,it'll be on 28th,where 1 from10 wins seat.
So my new plan is
80$->300$ till 1th of September, because I need the money for a Spanish language course, and an exam after that (intermediate).
How are you guys doing?
