Few thoughts

I have completed one of my goals by purchasing Omaha Manager, woohoo. I have also bought the Slotboom and Hollink shorthanded book, so I will be getting cracking on that. So far I have noticed that he "discussed this a lot in the previous book" which is quite annoying and also it seems to be quite shortstacked based which isn't me, but I will toddle on and read it. Possibly purchase the Jeff Hwang book after I have finished it.

Now onto actual poker, I started off quite well, but then I got a bit cocky and over elaborated a few plays and completely threw away a chunk or two. I will try and get back to basics and get into a session. I won't post any stats or anything right now as I have only played 1.5k hands or something.

2010 goals

I haven't played much poker over the last year or so, I definitely lost interest, as well as other things in life getting in the way. But the last few days I have been playing some 6-max PLO, and I must admit I have really enjoyed it. I also threw in a qualifier to the DS championship in Dublin, which I won, but I through away the chance in the next stage. I will have another crack next week as I think a weekend in Dublin could be really good craic! Just incase you may get disappointed I apologise in advance. I will set these goals, and try to hit them but if my interest in poker subsides again please don't hate me.

1. Get my roll on Poker770 from ~$50 to $500 using 6-max PLO
2. Qualify for a land based event entry fee over £200 (I know it is small but it gives me more scope and chance)
3. Read a poker book, hopefully get an omaha one to help me along.
4. Add Omaha to my Holdem Manager, should be done by Monday I would imagine.

That is all I can think of at the moment.
