Year in Review
March - August: Off (I withdrew most of my bankroll and took a break from poker to focus on other things in my life; spending time with family, house stuff, wedding, etc.) This was really needed after playing straight for 2.5 years.
September: I rejoined the game with a fresh outlook and made a lot of tweaks. I only had $2,000 left in my accounts after paying for my wedding so I started back at Nl50 till I got comfortable again. +200sih
Current bankroll: 4.3k - I might be taking some out in the near future for a TV and my new dual 20" monitor set up!.
As you can see I hit a couple rough spots but was able to play through it and get it back the next month. I am very happy with my play at NL100 and I feel like I shouldn't move up anytime soon. I loved playing NL200 and I was very profitable but I just don't feel like I have anything to prove and I want to continually withdraw for fun stuff that my wife and I can enjoy and leave my bankroll at $2,000 +.
Never really focused on them all year and probably never will. They just take up too big of a block of time to play and I don't like staying up past midnight during the week.
4. What did I accomplish that I said I would last year at this time
I didn't take any shots or play nearly enough hands to get to NL400. Taking 6 months off doesn't help. This year my goal will probably be to get back to Nl200 by fall next year.
I didn't play 1000 hands a week. Once again taking 6 months off doesn't help but I think I have been averaging that since I started playing again in September. This will be the main driver of my success next year.
I don't think I read any books, but browsing forums and joining cardrunners I really think that I nailed this goal. My game is much more stable and profitable then I was previously and I thank Cardrunners for that.
1/3 - I guess I failed at keeping my resolutions/goals
My next post will be my goals for 2008.
