From the ground up (2021)

A friend told me about this site a few weeks ago, and I’m glad he did. I’ve spent some time in poker, but I cannot say that I have a solid understanding of the game, and this has always bothered me deep down. I’ve been playing tournaments of ABI $17 (nlhe, plo, o8 with 55 ROI) part-time on and off for the past 12 years. But I could never move up to higher stakes, or win at cash games.
I turned 31 this year, and I’m doing some changes to my life. My 2 year work project ends this May, and I’m going back to university to study after that. To make money to support myself while I do that, I plan to level up my PLO game to eventually become a consistent winner. I started the Launchboard course, and will do the 10WT course after that. I really enjoy how the knowledge is presented. It’s fun to learn.
I’ve set concrete goals right at the gate before, but those never worked well for me. So my plan is to just absorb the courses, interact with the community, and make progress. Once I get into momentum, I will set some achievable milestones.
Thanks for reading, and GL at the tables! 🙂

Great to have you apart of the community and glad to see that you’re happy to be apart of the plo mastermind!
Best of luck with the changes this year, what do you plan to study when you go back to university?
If you haven’t already, I would definitely recommend checking out the road maps that we provide these can be found here: https://support.plomastermind.com/category/44-roadmaps and will be helpful to just putting you on a content path to avoid any overwhelmingness.
I look forward to reading further updates and seeing you outline some goals when the time is right!

Thanks, man. You guys have done a great job with the site. It’s user-friendly and welcoming. 🙂
I plan to study computer science. Will be weird to be back at school again haha..
I haven’t checked that out. Appreciate you providing the help, man. I will look into that.

After finishing with the free course, I registered for the monthly package a week ago. I’ve been watching the 10WT course and taking notes, each day a little bit. There is an overwhelming amount of information here, so I reached out for help, and I am taking things slow.
One of the things that has helped me a lot in life through the years is journaling, so I’m gonna transfer this habit into the poker sphere, too. A lot of emotions, thoughts, and narratives goes unprocessed while I am playing poker, and after it, there is this sudden stop at the end. I hope that writing about them will help me make more sense of them.
