Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

I had to work a few hours today so I took the day off but still reviewed a bunch.
I've been working pretty obsessively on improving my strategy postflop. This shows when trying to play wide ranges from the big blind. The better I get postflop, the wider I'll call till I'm calling close to optimally. Small sample but I'm pretty pumped and wonder/hope this is maintainable especially grinding lower stakes.

Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

Rough day I think only decent cash was 3rd in $15 180. I spewed a bit didn't run great. Low energy with this master cleanse fasting thing I might just study for a couple days.

$2,155/$25,000

Funny hand vs a reg I think he misread and thought he had 22 or 33

Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

I punted $1300 in it or so I'm up overall I remember one day playing at airport just waiting for plane and running it up big in 20 minutes lol. It is too addicting I shouldn't play.

+$660 after food and expenses in live cash for 4 hours awesome session. I punted $180 though not happy about that 4th in Playnow 5k gt last night too.

I have to sit down and calculate all my poker related expenses from Sept 10th on for this challenge. I might not even be up money since I just made some big investments with Piosolver and coaching packages.

$25K is my christmas target $100k is overall target by the end of June when my braces come off and I imagine I'll try to find a gf.

Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

I'll post a few hands .I think I did well to figure out who the fish were quick in the session today and play lots of pots with them. A player was limp/calling raises and flatting raises super wide with hands like 96o, T4s etc so my plan was to get involved with him and bluff him on only very favourable boards and runouts for my range but mainly just value bet really thin.

I was playing 1/3 today and I really like the game. This was one of my first times playing live poker on a weekday and I think I had a really good table the action was great. Most players were straddling buttons and there were a lot of pots over $100.

One hand I remember was BU straddled for $6 SB completed and in the BB I completed for $3 with 74o. I'll complete almosts anything suited and anything that can make a straight. The player on my left who I think is a decent player raised to $20 and had 5 callers so I called the last $14 to make the pot $120. People play pretty passive or cautious in big pots here I've noticed. The flop came J84 2tone and it checked through. The turn was a 4 and I lead out for 2/3 or $80 as I would with any AJ, J8,4x, T9, 76, 65 and good flushdraws. I think people check a weak range that isn't protected enough so I would lead often. Only one player called who was the calling station. He's already hero called me a few times and he hasn't been right yet. I was just printing off him. The river was a 9 that completes the T7, QT draws that he might have but I think it's best to still bet and fold if he raises. I bet $150 into $280 and he called I could've maybe bet a bit bigger but at this point I hit a piece with the 9 with some of my range and don't have many bluffs to protect since I would give up with a lot of hands vs this player. I didn't see what he had but he wasn't too upset so I don't think it was too good.

Another big pot I won off him was with K8s in the small blind in another straddled. I can't remember what happened preflop but the flop was 3 way and the pot was $70 on KT5 I had top pair and 2nd nut flushdraw and lead out $35 only same stationy player called. Turn I hit my flush on a lowcard and bet half pot again $70 into $140. River was an 8 and I valuebet pretty big I think $200 into $280 and he called, I didn't see what he had.

These hands were just the more obvious valuebets and bigger pots I played but I won a lot of smaller pots with 2nd pair etc vs the station that I think I played well to extract value.

The hand I spewed and I think is a clear punt is with T8s. I raised from Hijack and decent player on my left flatted and hyper nit overcalled on the button then the station in big blind that I was targetting also called. Flop was K85 two tone $60 on flop and it checked to nit button who bet slightly over pot for $66. I think my first mistake here is calling this bet since the guy is a massive nit who is never bluffing enough to make this a call. I should be overfolding KTo make even KJ if I had a blocker to the flushdraw that I would also check OOP. Then the guy on my left who also checked to the nit shoves for $114 more. The nit only had $50 left so he called and I tanked thinking I hope they both have flushdraws like a fish and I called. $180 that I shouldn't have put in the pot

Spoiler:


I made some big laydowns too other than that punt I think I played well and got close to max value and a few well chosen bluffs through. I'm happy with my live game. I've progressed a lot since Vegas and Montreal and I'm pumped to be going to Edmonton tomorrow for deepstacks tourneys for a week. Cash games don't get enough dealers during the tournament series but I'll try to play as much of them as I can when I'm not grinding the tourneys.

Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

Edmonton didn't go well at all. I remember 33<KK<K2s getting it AI on 932 two tone for a huge pot in cash games and also losing QQ to KJo vs some dolt who called my 4-bet and cbet jam on 732r for a $700 pot. The tournaments didn't go well either and I only made a small run in the smallest one coming 9th. I'm going to focus hard on studying and learning cash games trying to play a decent amount of live hours and move up to NL50 or nl100 zoom in a few weeks as well as bodog 1/2. I've been playing NL25 zoom full-ring just to learn it and try it out and it seems really soft. Most of the volumes been just on my phone. I'll try to play zoom cash regularly on my phone in my downtime.

Pretty much all progress lost back to near $0 profit I'll update and add up all my balances soon.

I subscribed to monthly deliveries of soylent and the bars are really good so far. I'll try to have 4 servings of the drink and the bar each day along with protein shakes until I'm in better shape.

Re: $10,000 in $2.50 180s in ~3 months

Soylents not bad I haven't stuck to eating just that yet so I'm eating way too many calories. It would be great if I could just have the 4 servings of the drink and the bar everyday for 2250 calories.

$2300/$25000 For the Christmas part of the challenge I have a lot of work to do.

I gotta get motivated to start grinding hard. My brother went to check out apartments today that are about to start getting built. His business has been doing pretty good lately. The apartments he checked out are done being built in about 2 years and they require 10% down basically right away and 5% 6 months down the line and a mortgage right before they're done being built. I think I might go for it. A 1 bedroom 1 den apartment will be $375K and they throw in a bicycle and 1 year 2 zone transit pass so I could get away with selling my car if I had to especially if I go back to work where I get a work van. I have the initial 10% just barely but I would be good if a friend who owes me $6k pays me back soon and I sold my car for $8-10k.

I gotta think about it, I think that would be good motivation to grind really hard. I might have enough money to do it now since I'm switching to cash games and I don't need that big of a bankroll. I'm kinda all over the place these days. I need to get refocused and start grinding hard soon. Come November I want to be playing 150-200 hours of cash online at 0.5/1 and 80-100 hours of live per month at 1/3.

Any chance you'd be interested in picking up a young college kid that grinds $5-10 ABI on ACR?

:P Seem like a nice, entertaining guy. Looking for the coaching aspect, but also the MAKING MONEY aspect.. but on the coaching aspect tho ;p In order for me to make you money, I'd have to improve obv ;p
