I found some old content and thought, “why not!” I’m going to post this old content just to have it. So over the next few weeks or possibly days, I will post this stuff by making it live and linking to it here on this post. I am hoping I can develop a habit of posting on a regular basis.
Well, This one is first up because it is called “first post”. While this by far was not my first post it was at this particular time. I was getting a “new” poker path and wanted to chronicle my journey not so focused on poker as much as my general feelings and goals etc. I should have explained that I had at this time started a couple of challenges the for the new year of 2011. First was a challenge of x dollars to x dollars bankroll growth challenge. I think it was $100 to $10,000. Another challenge I had set to do was x hands which I have written in my actual (physical) notebook and when I find that I can confirm but I am sure it was 1 million hands.

Playing 6max superturbo STTs is not that bad I can play a lot of tourneys within a short amount of time, about 7 minutes each, with 4 tabling it takes me about 1 hr per ever 25 tourneys. I think I can reasonably expect to make 10% ROI from each which means about $2.50/hr – I need to play more. The only problem I am having is something I typically suffer with; lack of focus, lack of ……. (well you know that thing that makes most people successful). I beg you not to take me down as negative but it’s hard to motivate one’s self to play when their graph looks like the following;
