Well, another year down, and what a year it was! In a totally self-absorbent way, I would say that it has been the best year of my life. Becoming a shareholder at Blonde Poker, travelling across Europe to update various live events, going to Vegas and playing a WSOP Event and, of course, meeting Dana.

But, enough of that for now, hopefully over the next few days I will find time to post both a review of the year and a ‘best of 2006’ entry (everyone seems to be doing these at the moment, so let’s jump on the bandwagon), but, for the time being, here are my 10 New Year’s resolutions (or goals as I prefer to call them):

(1) Play more online cash and earn a minimum of $35,000.

(2) Play more STT’s and turn my initial $10 deposit on Ladbrokes (currently $120) into a four-figure sum.

(3) Play more tournaments and online satellites for Grosvenor Main Events.

(4) Win a Grosvenor Main Event.

(5) Improve my online discipline, only playing when I know I am in the right frame of mind and subsequently less open to making unforced errors.

(6) Treat all tournaments with the utmost respect, playing them to the best of my ability, however big or small the buy-in.

(7) Maintain the standard of the Blonde live updates.

(8) Continue to update my blog on a regular basis.

(9) Continue to gain weight, eventually surpassing the 11 stone mark.

(10) Sleep less and make better use of my days.

There you go, a little clichéd but it provides me with specific goals which should give me some direction throughout the year. Whether I’ll achieve them is another thing, but I’ll certainly give it a good bash.

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for reading my blog.

I reckon you can achieve all of these, Snoops - but No. 9, unfortunately, looks a little impossible for you.

Already gone from 8.13 to 10 stone Simon. Not a bad start, so don't count it out. :-)
