      So, what are your goals for next month?

      Guess i'l start with my own:

      :diamond: play 10k hands.
      :diamond: maintain 8bb/100 winrate or better at PLO.
      :diamond: stick to PLO20 until rolled for PLO50. While i'm succeeding at PLO50, I simply dont have the roll for it, and I know the pokergods will rape me later otherwise. :O
      :diamond: watch four more PLOSH vidz by Gavz101. While he isn't a well known coach, and isn't on Pokerstrat, i'm enjoying his content a lot, and its pretty unique to what I have seen elsewhere.

      my brother smokes weed habitually when playin MTTs. he layed off it for a while, and has seen more success. I would say its pretty likely it is affecting you, but how much it affects your game depends on the person.

      I think what he means by that is - you should be aiming to improve your winrate all the time. But maybe I am wrong :)

      -Clear Party Poker bonus

      -Reach a BR of $1000

      -Move up stakes from 15/25 to 25/50

      I aint gonna give a number of how many hands I want to play, I'll play enough hands to reach those targets hopefully.

      Realistic targets for me I think as all three are linked.

      well, it's not really a goal that is yours to determine. It's kind of like setting a goal to win the lottery...

      for instance, if you did want to win the lottery, your goal should be to maximise your chance of winning.... i.e. buy x amount of tickets.
