Yearly Goal
By the end of 2014 I would like to be showing a reasonable ITM % and a positive ROI in MTTs and large field SnG’s (180 man +) I will be using 100 Buy in rule for the start of the year however one of my caveats will be setting money aside to play some micro millions games plus I will play whatever PSO main events that my schedule will allow.

I will also be trying to satellite in to bigger games than my bank roll will allow.
By the end of 2014 I would like to be a more knowledgeable NLHE cash game player able to regularly beat the 5NL level. My goal is to beat 2NL over 20,000 hands then move to 5NL and attempting to do the same there. I will do this by, Attending live trainings, and making use of the video archive at PSO, and using the people and forums available here at PSO.
