      Hey everyone,

      Since we have a new month coming up, why not share your poker goals for October with the rest of the community?

      Tell us any goals or plans you might have this month. This can be anything, ranging from the number of hands you play to moving up in stakes or anything else you can think of.

      Just let us know!

      Kind regards,
      Tino

      As for myself, my goals for October will be to play at least 50k hands. That's of course nothing compared to what some of you guys play, but considering the time I have that should be quite the achievement already :f_biggrin:

      On top of that of course I plan to make some money, but we'll have to see how that goes :O

      My currently poker goals are keep building a roll from scratch in Party Poker with DoNs after withdrawing (I had withdrawn it all a couple days before they started charging for it), and keep clearing a no deposit + first deposit bonus in an Ipoker skin (47,5% rakeback :) ) - I need to rake about 8 dollars a day for the next couple months for beeing succesfull.

      To recover gold status, watch more videos, and move up to $1+20c SNGs on i-poker. I would like to be playing $5+50c again by year-end.

      I would be interested to know why you don't play the $5.50 SNGs anymore? I am thinking of playing them myself but I am waiting for the new changes to ipoker this October before deciding what to play. Did you do well at them?

      Yes I did well at them a few years ago, but I stopped playing actively and withdrew my bankroll. Now building back up to the point where my roll will justify the stakes. I may even go wild and deposit.

      Get to the $5.50 as soon as you can. No difference in standard imo just get screwed by the rake at the lower levels

      Thanks for the encouragement.
      Of course it would help if I didn't fall asleep during the games - lost another buy-in that way tonight, so cross, hadn't done that for a couple of months. Coolered and on the wrong end of flips in my other games, but partially redeemed myself by digging in and taking 1st in my last game, so not too gross overall.
