Game Plan

  • Goal: Side income. $10,000 USD/Year.
    • Time frame: Within 2 Years.
    • Will need to transition to $1/3 Live games.
    • Very ambitious, and $10,000 is not a life changing amount of money.
  • Action: How to get there?
    • Ignition 2/5NL Zone is probably not where I should be.
    • Be more disciplined with bankroll management

Is it worth it?
