Setting Your Poker New Years Resolutions

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Have you thought about where you want to take your poker career in 2011? Do you want to continue playing free poker online, up your stakes, start playing in tournaments, or take it to the big time and compete for a WSOP bracelet? With 2010 coming to a close, now is the perfect time to start setting your poker goals for the coming year.

When making your poker new years resolutions, the first thing you should do is look back at your performance over the past year. What limits did you play for in 2010? How much money did you win (or lose) over the past year? Do you feel like you’ve improved your poker skills? How do you feel about your understanding of odds and strategy? Write it all down.

Once you’ve got your list of your 2010 performance written down you are ready to start making your resolutions. Decide, based on your performance last year, which things you need to work on. If you feel like you need to brush up on your strategy then make the resolution to practice with free poker online. Decide what your poker bankroll will be for the year, or even break it down into a monthly, weekly or daily limit. Check out upcoming tournaments and decide which ones you are going to enter.

When you make a list of goals you can ensure that you will maximize your poker productivity and fun in 2011. Happy New Year!
