My aim in poker is to win a Sit N Go Jackpot and have total poker winnings of $50,000. Since the end of 2010 I have been recording my progress in this blog. Currently I am playing the Maui Jackpot Sit N Go games, working on ways to improve my win rate % and thus increase my chances of hitting the Jackpot. My profit total at 1st December 2015 is $26,377.

Poker Plan: Coaching & Mental Game Update
I have played nearly one thousand games since I drafted
my poker plan. This is aimed at helping me improve my win rate at the Maui Jackpot sit n go tables. My historical win rate in these games is 13% and I have set
myself a target of 16% which would massively improve my chances of winning a
jackpot. It won't be easy but making small steps of progress in a few areas could
really help. For now 14% here I come. In February I have been refocusing on my
plan particularly in the area of coaching and the mental game. In effect I have
combined the two by signing up for Nick Wealthalls coaching program "The Winning Poker Blueprint."
It is early days but I can already see this is going to be very worthwhile.
There is some very good material being delivered and some good stuff for me to
work on. Suddenly I have homework again! So far I have been working on how to
think more like a pro, backing my judgement and making key decisions in big pots. One
major issue I still have is that I am focused more on winning than I am on
playing well. Why is this bad? I still judge my poker on whether I won or lost
in a session or in an evenings play. This can be massively dependent on luck. I
should be focused on how well I played and be satisfied with a losing session in
which my play was good but my luck was not. Keep making the correct decisions and the money will come. Yes I understand that but I want it now! Something to work on and certainly
something I am thinking about a lot. I possibly should get out more.
