August - Review of Goals

At the beginning of August I set some goals and with only a few days left to play and having to move back to school on the 28th, I thought I would revisit them.
1)Play my best despite beats, etc.  I think I accomplished this, but it is pretty easy to do it when you run real hot lol.  W/ my hot streak inevitably coming to an end soon I will def. keep this as a major area to focus on.
2)Read the poker book I bought.  I have read about half of it and it is easily the best poker book I have read and is very likely to have helped clean up my play slash improved my results this month.
3)Win Something.  Unfortunately, mission failed.  I took a couple seconds, a third, and a couple 4ths but wasn't able to get the win.  Took a 7-outter (I think...) on the river that would have clinched a victory but I haven't taken anything down.  Still have a few days...
4) Get a $400+ score.  Once again, didn't get this done.  However, I have had 9 $100 scores in the last year and 5 of them were this month!
5)Weight loss bet.  Ehhh...I am down to a better weight as a result of eating healthier but haven't worked out very much.  At last check I was probably way ahead of Jeff but he is hiking in California and will probably pass me by...
Overall I had a very good month...I think it was probably my best month of mtts since I started putting in a decent volume of them last August.  I have the roll to play $5 and $10 tourneys now but will probably stay a little conservative in my shot-taking.  I'm a wuss, not much else I can say b/c I should probably be taking more shots lol.
In the meantime...GG summer and lots of comes classes and student teaching kajdfal;kjdf;alkjdfal;.

Hey kids! I am done working at Big Daddy's in Spokane.  I am partially moving to Butte to work at Lucky Lil's with Jesse.  I am keeping my place in Spokane and will be back every so often over the next year. 
Peace and love to all of you in Spokane! And hello to all the Montana folk. 
I am really looking forward to working with Jesse and the crew again, and can't wait to see what the next year will bring for World Poker Solutions. 
Good luck to all in your poker ventures and keep in touch!!!!!

August and My Goals

I worked at a sports camp all summer up to this point and have been living in a dorm at U of M.  Any job that pays you for watching TV and playing ping pong is awesome but it was tough to play any tournaments other than the ones from 12:30-2am.  I can't complain as many of my friends (and those in the real world outside of college) work schedules that restrict there time for poker even more.
However, if I had it my way I would be able to make enough playing poker that it would be my only responsibility during the summer.  That is what I will come close to living for the next three and a half weeks before school starts up again.  Because of this I have decided to lay out a few goals for the high-volume month ahead:
1) Play my best despite any bad run of cards, beats, or bubble bust outs.
2) Read the Apestyles/Rizen/PearlJammed book I bought a few weeks ago.
3) Win something.
4) Get my first $400+ score.
5) Start running again to get in shape and possibly win my weight loss bet with Jaspinal (long shot).
I am also running a $10 tournament at my house in a week that I hope to get about 20 people for.  I have run several tournaments like this in the past and they have been pretty fun and fairly profitable lol.  I will have to spend the next week calling people over and over because it is very hard to get anyone to commit to anything.  Oh well, I have fun doing it.
I look forward to what I hope will be my highest volume, and most successful month playing mtt's ever, but either way I hope I come out a better poker player and still excited about the game.
Good luck everyone and keep posting!
