Sandtrap's goals for 2013

Here are My Poker goals for 2013

I always said that VPP's only comes second to the cash. Vpp's are basically a bonus to add to your cash. But in 2012, I've reached my goal and for the last 2 months of the year, I tried to accomplish a specific goal which was to obtain 8,333 vpp's all while having a positive cash profit. Well I did it!!!!!


So by year end 2013 I want to be a SUPERNOVA

Yearly goals
I would like to increase my poker knowledge and I intend to do this by watching videos, searching the internet for information in achieving this. I would like to be a Platinum Star every month and I intend to do this by playing cash games which in return will give me my money goal of $18,000 and SUPERNOVA by year end.

Monthly goals

To be a Platinum Star VIP (8,333 VPP's), I will do this by playing 70,000 hands, 20,000 at the 50NL and 50,000 at 25NL. I will watch 4 videos and 8 hours of hand analysis. My financial monthly goal is to make $1,000 which doesn't include poker benefits

Weekly goals

20 hours a week
17,000 hands of cash games (mainly Zoom)
1 video and 2 hours of hand analysis with PT3 or via the Poker School forum

I will not spend more than my monthly bankroll and I will not spend more time on poker as per my set goals so I can spend time with the family and other activities.

Buy following those goals, I will get $1,200 in Stellar Rewards and I will of accumulated 337,000 FPP's for the entire year, which I can exchange for close to $5,300 for a total of $6,500 or keep those FPP's for tournaments or satellites for bigger events.

You can follow my progress here:

Good luck to all for 2013
