new year new goals (time vault)

By: adohole @ 15:31 (EST) / 239 / Comment ( 1 )

heey guys it has been a while since a posted a blog.

but now with the time vault promotion i thaught why not lets get it started up agian.

the new year hasnt been kind to me by first running not to well then running really bad and after that so tilted that i played $18 hypers in a grose stupid action luckyaly i didnt loose to much in those but still like 20% of my BR could have been lots more. but i was just so frustrade a played 6 mtts at one and i got aa got cracked qq got cracked en ak killed vs a-j and then as the last one i was just so mad i will put the last 2 hands off the session here

with this last hand i was thinking after it got all in OK an a can happen im OK with that hitting and Bam the flop an A after that i was just ok i said that may happen no problem just no J. ahw what serious. ill spare you all the hands if you want you can look them up but i can assure you its the most unlucky reach i got in a while. 

i had 4 of thos days i a row. i dropped from $410 to $305 i was thinking maybe im playing just bad i opent 15 $0.50 games almost doubled my money there. i thought ok i go to the mtt's agains. same storry bad beat after bad beat. the i went to play 6man hyper sattys 3.75 for the storm. same story there i was so mad i played lik 10 $18 6 man hypper luckaly i got 2 tickets of them otherwise i would have been brooke by now but my left over bankroll was $200. i grinded it up a ltile to $235 now.

but now for my new year goal

simple an 10k vpp goal

how i got on this 10k vpp is because i diceded i should be able to get silverstar every month and get to 5k vpp if i dont get on a downswing. and there should always be some time to relax. but then i thought its a goal so you should try something that your not cetain about that you reach.
for this 10kvpp chas i will nee to:
834vpp a month
193vpp a week
27.5vpp a day

 i will only play some good easy mtt's the 5.50 short stacked the micro time tournys and some of the 1.10 mtts. further i will play $1.50 sng KO/regular. someday the normal speed some times the turbos. and at last i have a a database of realy bad players at the $3.50 sng and $3.75 hyper sattys. i will play thos only when these guys are playing and i have small database on realy bad cash games players. i will chase the until the 10NL tables.

i decided that on downswing im gonna play around 20 tables only the 1.50 sngs because i cant watch the end the because a new table pops up. so i cant get tilted the. and i realy dont get tilted in sng's in MTT it can be so nasty to get a bad beat after 4 hours of play and close to the real money.

those are my poker goals this year.

i wish you al the best at your 2013 goals and gl at the tables
