      decided to start a blog and get some self discipline at same time:

      day 1 - oct 25-14
      Good afternoon from sunny Florida. Decided to take the plunge today and become a better player. My short term goal is to be a winner at lower to mid limit S&Gs. How I plan on going about it is to:
      1. Read and study poker strategy articles and video (paid some $$ so I can get more content)
      2. Try to understand the “why” for the poker strategy advice.
      3. Get feet wet at lower limit S & Gs (in past I think I am a net loser at these tournys) that is why I “took the plunge”
      4. Do self analysis after each game
      5. Keep record of progress (investment/ return ) an “mistakes” and missed opportunities.
      6. I am thinking about a daily “blog” so I can create some self- accountability – do not have coach or wife to nag me so I need to develop some self-discipline (any ideas on how to develop self-discipline would be appreciated)

      So off to races - studying the low limits basis strategy S&G charts.

      Is my initial goal realistic? Or can I (or anyone) beat the vig at the low limits?
      Does it really require a lot of bad players at table to beat the vig?

      been studying the low limit SNG strategy. has anyone actually been successful using it? seems like to me with thee tight play and the house rake and a doney percentage of 10% you would be doing good to get a 5% return on your money. and when you consider all other related costs (computer - training - travel) its a money loser. do you really have to select games where the donkey ratio is more than 20%?

      may go out today and find out where the donkey are having a convention? BTW. I live in South Florida any ideas about where to look?
