2014 Poker Goals

By: adsthepro777 @ 19:54 (EST) / 315 / Comment ( 3 )

Hi guys,

Writing myself up some goals for 2014 and thought i might aswell write a blog and share it with you guys  

I play micro stakes cash atm, 2nl the smallest stakes possible started grinding the cash games again at the start of december and have managed to pick up around 19 buy ins.

I read through some goal articles online and this is what i have come up with for the year - 

My goals overall for the year are to reach 10nl and final table an MTT of 5k+ players.Heres how im breaking it down:

Play 5000 Hands a month minimum

Earn 500vpps per month minimum

Watch at least four strategy videos relevant to the game i'm playing per month

Read four articles/forum posts per month minimum

Post 4 hands in the forums for review per month

I will be reviewing my play and how i am doing at the end of every month to see if these goals are makeable like the 5k hands per month isnt a lot considering how much i want to play but i will have to see how many i play in january and go from there.

I want to keep trying to improve my game this year more than ever, it's probably the area that ive struggled with before now but lately ive really started studying my game and watching a lot of strategy videos etc. and so far it's showing a nice win line  I know i cant get complacent with it because i know from experience how quickly it can go the other way I will be consistently looking to improve my game and take more time when moving up in stakes to watch videos/read articles etc.

Will be back with a post at the end of jan.

Best of luck to anyone else trying to set goals for the new year
