Plans for 2007

I am going to post some actual poker content soon. I have a few things I have been running through my head lately. I also am going to make 2007 the year of the Waffle. Well to be more conscience I am going to take the leap this year. For a long time I have talked to bloggers who have been successful and made a ton of money playing this game. In basically every case it has been because of what seemed like some magical decision to go for it. To put some real money on the line, play some stakes that matter, just bring their game up to the next level. I used to think they just sort of made some jump but I think now that they just decided to do it. So before the end of the year I will be properly bankrolled for the 1/2 game and playing it every day. Either this will mean I have made the money playing online or just bought in for a 2K stake. Neither option is going to be a financial burden so we will see which way I want to go. I think for me around 2K is a good roll for 1/2 but open to suggestions. I understand that you may not need that much but it does not hurt.

I have a lot of confidence that I can play this game. It is not such a high stake that the play gets a hell of a lot better, but most people tend to at least have some logic behind the way they play. In the sessions I have played so far I have held my own and been ahead when getting my money in. I have become a much tougher player and learned a bunch about playing from people like Mr. Dreamy and MiamiDon. My ability to read people and trust those reads has also increased and I know when I am NOT dialed into a game and need to back off a little and play more ABC. So hopefully 2007 is the step up I need and in 2008 I will have made one million dollars, bwhaahahahah!

I am turning off anonymous comments, because, if you post a comment, I want to know you have some sort of tag. That way I keep keep the stupid people sorted out. Sign up for blogger, and then Elvis can insult me all he wants. I need some connection to the comments even if it is just forcing someone to open an account.

Sounds like a good plan. I would suggest a bigger bankroll though -- closer to the recommended 20 buy-ins will reduce the chances of going busto.

Yeah, if you're playing 1/2 NL online consistently with a 2K bankroll, we might need to petition Al to re-allow you into the Blogger dead pool.

For the record, I also think you can play that game. My above statement is completely unrelated to that. It's the simple fact that it is possible to drop 10 buyins in No limit in a short period of time while making no or very few mistakes. Witness my $1,000 in losses at the WPBT winter festivities, all on playing pocket KK hard.

Sometimes you get kicked in the junk, and playing within your roll keeps the swelling down. But I went busto two weeks ago, so who am I to give advice?

What they said. Seriously. 20-30 buy-ins is not too much.

Play .50/1 with 2K and regularly take shots at the 1/2 (make certain day or two within a week and play 1/2).

Are you playing to multi-table?

I think $2K is plenty to play $1/2 with. If you lose $2K before you drop in levels you're a complete donkey and had no business playing there in the first place.

If you drop a $1000 move down to $100. I doubt it happens.

Win early win often and build a roll.

I would suggest 15-20 buyin rule. Taking a shot with 10 ain't horrible, but you must have the disipline move down if you lose a few buyins. Another thing to think about is confidence level. If you make your way up to that level on your own it will be much better for your poker esteem.
