First things First

By: Stitches_Mtl @ 22:38 (EST) / 183 / Comment ( 4 )

I thought I should start off by telling you exactly what I've got tucked away in my vault for 2013.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

That about sums up the last three years of my poker play.

I’ve decided to commit myself (no pun intended) to a 12 month program which will allow me to continue to play recreationally and actually enjoy playing.

My Goals are going to be somewhat different from most of the posts I’ve read, simply because I’ll never be able to get to the next level if I don’t achieve these first.
Baby steps…

Goals & Objectives
A- Tilt management
B- Bankroll management
C- Disciplined Table Image
D- Increase my MTT ITM % from X to 15%

No more than 1 re-load in 2013
Only play micro stakes until I have control of goals A-B-C
Spend 4hrs per week at PSO for instruction.
Solicit feedback and participate in others blogs.
Attend weekly live trainings.
I will not deviate (no mater how tempting) from the Bankroll Management guideline structure outlined on PSO.
Track and monitor progress.
Eradicate FPS (Fancy Play Syndrome) from my game.( Leave this to the big boys on TV)
Move from Loose-Passive fish to Non Loose-Passive fish.
Focus –Adjust - Re-adjust during all stages of MTT.
Enjoy the game for what it is.

GL to all in 2013 and thank you in advance for any support or comments you provide.
