I have invested around $1000 in poker in the past 4 months since I started playing. I am down to $250 mostly due to stupid play when I am drinking as well as the learning curve of playing various games. I have made a promise (that I sincerely hope I can keep) that if I don't get back to $1000 or go broke trying, that I will quit playing poker in my current form. I'll still play in Las Vegas, but I will quit online and quit going to local casinos in Los Angeles if I bust out on my $250 I have left at PokerStars.com. The ultimate goal I have is at least to get my current $250 back up to my initial investment of $1000.
So here is my next project:
1). Ten $25 sessions of $0.10/$0.25 - $25 No Limit Hold 'em at Poker Stars.
2). No drinking whatsoever when I am playing.
3). Only playing my "A" game. Super tight aggressive, no bullshit plays AT ALL.
4). Write critiques of every session I play, and learn from my mistakes.
I'll post my results after my 10 sessions. Should be interesting, thanks for reading.
