New Year's Resolutions: Poker, part three

I should take the time to list some 2009 poker goals and review what I have done in 2008.

In 2008, I:

Was a winning live poker player (although I played very little in the second half of the year);

Rediscovered my enthusiasm and knack for non-hold'em poker variants, especially Stud8 and Omaha;

Was a winning player in the bloggaments (the Mookie, and especially the Skillz game, where I was the overall leader by a healthy margin);

And was a small loser in my online cash game play. This was primarily caused by some disaster sessions where I chased losses in juicy games past the point where I should have quit.

In 2009, I plan to:

Put in a lot of study time away from the felt;

Improve upon my 2008 online cash game performance;

Win a BBT4 seat and extend my streak to three consecutive ToCs;

Win another Mookie;

Post a winning live cash game year at higher limits;

Play in a WSoP event.

They sound like some good goals. I'd like to play you heads up at the final table of a blogger gathering tournament.

Thanks for the note! It does look like there is a game in works! Meanhappyguy is hosting! Feb 7th is the date. He has a post about it. He is up in Seattle so I would hope you could make it. I think that my Betty will be there. I would like you to meet her. For some reason I want her to meet more bloggers. Do you capitalize bloggers? I don't want to offend anyone!

FYI OhCaptain umm how will you be sitting after the wicked suck out that I put on you!

You are more than welcome to join us in February. I can't think of anything else you need to bring... maybe a Schaubs?

Did you get your user ID from the series of science fiction Shrike books?

If you're referring to the Dan Simmons Hyperion series, then that's a qualified yes.
