I just have to finish o
EDIT: What about the name of the topic? Can a mod change it to something like "I need to finish off this year strong"
After a little reading in these forums every now and then I really got excited by reading this blog and decided to write down my own goals for the rest of the year hopefully to gain more motivation and to just write down my thoughts which should help a lot I believe.
Now Im going to edit/add some stuff in this first post so that its easier to read and maybe update on my progress.
Now a little bit about myself:
I am a student who took this year "off" for trying to get the SuperNovaElite stats on Pokerstars playing poker. I have been playing for probably 4 years now making decent money but never getting as much out of it as I could.
Getting SuperNovaElite Status on Pokerstars is worth pretty much exactly 100k$ but if you want to find out a little more about it just go to Poker Stars VIP Club - Supernova Elite Bonuses and Promotion
Basically you have to play a lot of tables and a lot of hours doing this which is very tough to do. You guys can ask me anything you want if you dont understand poker and Im going to try my best to explain it. But because puctures tell more than words here is my Graph from last month(September). The green curve is my actually winnings while the red one is the "expected luck" curve so basically I was very unlucky last month:
It a sick way to make a living actually. Beeing up 15k and losing all of it in like two weeks... But that's the variance of poker which is part of it. Without it the bad players wouldn't come back to the game.
So jeah the most important thing for me this year is archieving the SNE status. I have only a little over 500k points but I need one million. And I get around 1k points/1 hour. Meaning that there lies around 500hours of challenging pokerplay in front of me this year. My Milestones to archieve will be
[ ]600k By the end of October
[ ]800k By the end of November
[ ]1mil before Christmas.
Im just going to leave that as it is and Im going to update this about my other goals and my approach/lifestlye. Updates will come!
Im going to make a list for what I want to do tomorrow and update this at the end of the day:
-Wake up at 6AM
-Play thee 3 hour sessions of poker. Trying to completely focus and perform the best I can.
-Do a workout in my Homegym. (I have a really balla homegym... Can make some pictures if you want to but I am getting somewhat lazy lately which I really need to change!)
-Do a training session at Neuronation which is a German version of Lumosity pretty much. Havent done this much but want to go with it for the rest of the year and see if it helps.
-Update you guys about the progress I made
