March Results and Goals for April

Well, I guess that says it all doesnt it? March was a really good month. +$830 or so in cash games, and I only wasted about $50 on Tourneys. As you can see I took a shot at 100nl towards the end of that big heater (hands 10.5k -16k) I actually played and ran well during my session at 100 and was up well over a buy in when this hand happened...

After that hand I lost a few other mediocre pots over my tables and ended up only a few bucks. But I have no doubt I can beat that game just as well as ive been beating 50nl the past few months. I would have played more 100 this month, but I took some time off and didnt play much the last week or so, so when i did play i took it easy on myself and stuck to the 50nl games I'm comfortable in. I figure that once April starts I'll start taking more shots when I find good tables, and once my bankroll is $2500 or so I'll move up for good as long as I dont lose 6 or 7 buy ins right away.

As for the goals I set for myself at the Beginning of the month...

Play at least 15k hands. - Easily done. I hit close to 18k and could have booked well over 20k if I didnt take most of the last week off.

Reach 'Silver' in FTP's Iron Man Challenge once again. - Check. Like the last goal, I could have easily reached 'Gold' status if I pushed on through the last week.

Play/Run well enough to stay at $50nl and not have to drop back down again this month. - BOOM! I started off really hot...basically broke even for 8k hands....ran super hot for the next 6k then came back to earth a little at the end of it all.

...and finally, at the end of the month have at least $2000 in my FTP account. - This is the only goal i didn't meet, I did come really close, I broke the 2k barrier at my highest point of the month but fell back below over the last 2k hands or so.

April Goals:

Play at least 17k hands - I know I played 18k in March, but I dont think I'll have as much time to play in April so I'll set this as the goal.

Reach 'Gold' Status in Full Tilt's IronMan Promotion. - I could have done it this month, so I'll try to push for it in April.

Move up and become profitable at 100nl. - I'm going to wait until I win a few more buy ins at 50nl before i move up, but hey, its something to shoot for.

Build my bankroll over 2.5k. - If I have a winning month, this one should be easy, especially combined with the rakeback I'll be getting from march, so I guess all im saying is that...I want to win!
