      As a general feedback, a very understandable and simple description of how one could start settings goals in order to achieve his or her visions.

      However, the downside of this presentation is that the video's target group is also the (not so small) pool of starting players who may have little understanding of poker dynamics (e.g. variance). In other words, a beginner may even set somewhat realistic goals in terms of how much money he or she would be earning after a certain period of time, but without the first-hand knowledge of how that money is actually being earned and what threats there are that can affect the achievement of the goal, the beginner may run into the issue of failing.
      For the reason stated above, it is recommended that beginners would benefit, if, at least in the beginning, their goals were defined by other accomplishments than money. Instead of being money-wise results-oriented, a beginner should build his vision on a goals like:
      a) hand volume
      b) basic playing stats and play style
      c) time invested into learning poker

      Hey faronel,

      Thank you for the nice and structured feedback! You are indeed very correct when saying that the right goals must be set. As you can see further in the series, in our example we propose just that - a mixture of practicing and both passive and active learning.

      Best,
      Kamen
