Reviving this thread to see how everyone has progressed. It doesn’t look like I’ll attain any of my poker goals for the year, due to certain distractions in my personal life that resulted in an extended hiatus. However, I have made some progress.
My bankroll is more than double where it was a year ago, and though I didn’t crack the top 500, I am in the top 2000. I entered a “real life” poker tournament and made good decisions, despite a rapid exit. While I have yet to enter a tourney on this site that costs over 1 million chips, I have played in and won 100k+ buy-in tournaments, with cashes exceeding 1m.
Long story short, I’m still moving in the direction of those goals, even if I didn’t reach them. I consider that a partial win.
