Well a new list of goals will b a deffinite chore unless I get a really swelled up head & figure a set of goals per month. Made it in2 an Open League gravey train, not a final table but far enough out of 6 or 7 thousand players. Not much money, never fool yourself there, the owner of the house gives us gruel cause all the roe I ship (remember I am a commercial fisher 1st then a newbie poker player) & I shipped a lot of roe because it does not count against my quotas so it is like free $ plus it also has the best price, 1 days worth of roe would cover the gruel for a month of Poker Stars Open League hand outs. You can c them right now scatching their heads each with a copy of this posting wondering if I should b charged with treason because they know what gruel is but as the boss is trying 2 figure out if this roe I am talking about is a code word 4 some drug, one hand holding up this post the other hand shoving a cracker with an onuce of caviar in2 his mouth while he waits 4 the vice XO 2 get back with the definition of what roe could b, enough about the front office. I  sat at first place 4 awhile in the Open tourney which felt good when u realize there had been over 6,000 players seeking that very spot. Of course I had 2 leave that seat behind as I tried 2 acquire more chips & that was my mistake, I should have burrowed down at first & waited 4 those I met come 2 me but since I was pumped & foolish enough 2 think I must b the best as I was at 1st place, within an hour or two I was out at 80th? maybe it was higher as there was pay 4 the last 99. Still I did make a few pennies so I was happy, then I think a school ticket tourney I ended up being the bubble boy if the last spot b4 u start getting paid is called that. Entered a Qualifier League & had enough time to wish good luck everyone and the second hand dealt I believe I was bumped out, decided I would try 2 finish the challenge and held my own at the level they make me play at, I did take a $20 hit shortly after starting those ring games but when I decided 2 take a break 1 hand had over $60 in it, and above board in the others. I was  back in time for another Quailifier Tourney and shut down the ring games except 4 2 while I played the tourney as I saw we would be getting close 2 another round of filling the challenge puzzle. That touney I also sat in 1st 4 awhile and I managed to finish the new challenge just b4 we started the final table of that tourney, those I need to take time making the right choices so I put the ring games on hold, felt good about them as 1 was between $30 & $35 with the other at just under $75 in the other. The final table was important as only 7 would get any $, I was done there at 5th I believe, in the $ plus my stats should get another decent boost. All in all this 3 month Newbie is a happy camper at this time, I do hope many of u had as good or better a day. Len, of as the game says Astor G26, good night all & God Bless u & yours.
