I'm thinking of gamifying my poker. So each time I do a 'correct play' (based on my current understanding) - i get 1 point. Each time I do a small error -1, each blunder -5 (or -10) but a correct action where it is extremely tempting +10.

So 'winning points' by correct folds when I don't have odds to call; not jamming too loose by ICM in EP and not calling jams too light for ICM - and other areas where there are temptations that I'm having difficulties breaking myself of.

This might make it easier to help change my brain to make good decisions rather than trying to win pots.

That sounds like a good idea, especially if you're able to see a positive effect on your win rate as a result!

That seems like a good idea, that can help you a lot when you have to analyze your plays and when you have to make corrections in your game, good luck with this idea, I hope it helps you improve

It will help you play 'correctly', but you may want to audit your definition of correct plays once a week. This could reinforce a leak if you aren't careful.

Sounds like a fun way to learn.
Knowing how many times you’re making calls when you know you shouldn’t
It’s easy making plays you know you should;)
