    My 2012 goals

    Hey guys,

    Just saw a guy at my pokertable with shortmat.. as his nickname so it made me think of BBP. From briefly looking through the forum, it appears that BBP was nearly wiped out due to BF.

    In 2011, about 2 months after BF I migrated to the US. Not a very wise decision from a poker standpoint but it's not like poker is a more important thing in life than being with the one I love. After going through all the immigration stuff I am finally able to try to find a job and try to get a poker bankroll built up again.

    Currently, I am playing on Lock poker and have started to pick mtt's back up. After getting a 2nd place yesterday in a small 1k gtd I am keen to get going again. Throughout March I will try to bink one of the Maximus tournaments but in preparation I will grind most of the micro mtt's.

    I don't really have a monetary or volume goal, I just want to get better and I believe the results will come when I put the effort in.

    I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has a similar situation going (grinding up from the micro's).

    Good luck to all of you trying to grind your way back into the poker world.

    Glad to have you back Stijn!

    I think quite a few of us will end up restarting from the bottom some day...

    Thanks guys, yesterday I was fortunate enough to bink a very small turbo mtt on Merge.

    Hope this continues!

    Cliffs are fine, shoecrew
