A bit of a newer player, I was wondering how you all measure growth in your poker career?

Of a micro tournament.

Does in ManeY do?

Is it put within 1/10 of the participation number of people?

Is it put in a semifinal table and a final table?

etc.

I really like this question :)

When I was a new player, I measured growth more in terms of studying/application of new concepts than in terms of results.

Growth I was happy with included:
-Completing a new poker book
-Defining new poker term/concept
-Applying that concept in game

I also created studying goals in terms of number of hours a week to study. I studied way more than I actually played back in my broke college student days of learning, but I still made time to play every week. I made playing the reward for studying and that was very motivating because I loved that every week I could feel my understanding of the game increase while I played :)

Best of luck to you!

I evaluate my progress solely by my bankroll. If it grows, it means that I am progressing, if it stands still, it means that my progress has also stopped. If my bankroll decreases then it is obvious that I am doing something wrong.

In results. Tournament wins and bankroll growth can be a good yardstick.
