Re: Goal To $100K

[x] Ate Vegetarian
[x] Stayed sober (maybe I'll include binging on junk food as using)
[x] Did 10 min workout (gonna do now)
[x] Grinded 6-8 hours +
[x] Read 20 mins +
[x] 100 Kegels every other day

Had a few beers last night and played some poker at my buddies how who plays for fun.
It was a profitable session there maybe +$200 last night. Down a bunch tonight hopefully I can close one of the last couple out.

Although I'm getting destroyed profit wise unless I bink one of the last two, I'm crushing ev bb/100 wise:

I tried Jiu Jitsu out today. It was a pretty good workout. I'm gonna wake up early tomorrow and grind from the big 22 onwards. I have a big shot at the $320 tomorrow I'll be praying tonight that I ship it.

Re: Goal To $100K

Withdrew $400 from stars traded whatever.
Sore AF from jiu jitsu! I barely slept last night maybe 2-3 hours then start grinding hard super early in the morning:

7.5k hands I think 2nd biggest session I've had since getting back into MTTs:
(Damn imageshack isn't working)

https://gyazo.com/b647dc3d8fb927d0f007123d5762f53b

Sick ev bb and bb/100 makes it look like I'm running hot but the worst day I've had since grinding and just a pretty bad month so far I don't even want to calculate profit. I threw in some higher stuff and I rebought in the $320 and busted first hand. I gotta just keep going hard.

[ ] 100 Kegels every other day

I'm taking out the 10 minute workout, I don't need to do that the Jiu-Jitsu a few times a few is a pretty awesome workout that'll keep me sore throughout the week.

Overall for the month: https://gyazo.com/608154943af5c3db6a55f0987c3c4ebe

Since starting up again Dec 1st: https://gyazo.com/e6f3e03795982718524bc9e0f62cb1e0

Pretty solid winrate I know I'm playing winning poker anyway and I gotta keep studying and fine-tuning things.

Re: Goal To $100K

I rarely complain about variance. I've been reviewing the past stretch and I should word this to say I really gotta appreciate the times I run good and be grateful for the bad times when every all-in loses in all your deep runs because those bad stretches make the good stretches better.

Anyway I'll post a tiny bit of strategy. I've been looking for ways to improve my BB winrate. I think defending super wide is the way to go and I've gotten pretty good at heads up pots at least but need to work on my multi-way game maybe leading more or something I dunno I haven't even reviewed multi-way spots much I just generally fold or squeeze more of the hands that are likely to be dominated.

I'm not super confident in my postflop yet so I'm not defending as wide as I should in heads up pots. I have friends who defend the big blind really tight and their big blind win rate isn't far off from mine. I think it's because I make postflop mistakes thought so it would be better to defend tight until you make less postflop mistakes and can realize more of your equity.

I've also been looking for spots to checkraise or bluff aggressively with blockers to the nuts in a situation where the player doesn't have the nuts based on how he played the hand. For example:

    Poker Stars, $30 Buy-in (300/600 blinds, 60 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 9 Players
    Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #37582184

    MP1: 14,197 (23.7 bb)
    MP2: 23,692 (39.5 bb)
    MP3: 18,970 (31.6 bb)
    CO: 19,120 (31.9 bb)
    BTN: 26,250 (43.8 bb)
    SB: 30,960 (51.6 bb)
    Hero (BB): 21,145 (35.2 bb)
    UTG+1: 25,409 (42.3 bb)
    UTG+2: 14,236 (23.7 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is BB with J 5
    6 folds, BTN raises to 1,320, SB folds, Hero calls 720

    Flop: (3,480) 9 2 T (2 players)
    Hero checks, BTN checks

    Turn: (3,480) K (2 players)
    Hero checks, BTN bets 1,600, Hero raises to 4,800, BTN calls 3,200

    River: (13,080) A (2 players)
    Hero bets 14,965 and is all-in, BTN folds

    Results: 13,080 pot
    Final Board: 9 2 T K A
    BTN mucked and lost (-6,180 net)
    Hero mucked J 5 and won 13,080 (6,900 net)



    Get the Flash Player to use the Hold'em Manager Replayer.


    I'm super tired but glad to see me do this. Basically just looking for spots to bluff with the nut blocker. This seems like an extra good spot since the villain is really capped to Kx, some two pairs and slowplayed sets but never the nuts since they c-bet QJo on the flop almost always. It worked out here I'm not sure if it's spewy though or if I can balance it enough. I also wonder if just leading is better and if I actually had QJ which blocks the KJ, KQ hands that would delayed c-bet more often should I always be leading. Anyway as played I like the checkraise and turn shove and I'm glad it got through. I"ll be looking for spots like this all week but I should be careful not to completely overbluff them.

    Damn unhid my sharkscope stuff. It's a slowgrind back up there after a steep dropoff:



    Since Dec.1st last year restarting hard in MTTs:



    I thought my ROI would be higher than this but small sample anyway.

    Most of my profit has been on bowl sites I think $60K usd profit on sites sharkscope doesn't track.

    I've also started to learn some coding shoutout luxy for showing me the codecombat site it's pretty fun. I have a couple simple poker programs I'd like to make. The run bad continues. I had one second place for about $600cad today which was nice though I was pretty short HU.

    Bal:
    PN: 2226 cad
    BD: 885 cad
    BO: 2580
    PS: 1127 (withdrew 300)
    88: 2393
    F : 590



    3111+(6690*1.3065)=11851 (+395 cad withdraw)

    Alright I didn't play today did some review and study went for a massage.
    I wasn't planning on playing many TCOOPs then a friend Adam offered to buy up my TCOOP action as well as the daily tourneys and Super XL stuff.

    So the next 11 days or so I'll be grinding this schedule:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=945371616

    I'll have to update profit and everything at the end.

    I got my first shipment of fruits and veggies from spud.ca today so I'll start tomorrow off early making 3 juices to last the day.

    TY LFG

    I'm feeling good today woke up nice and early made the juices for the day had a protein shake with almond milk.
    I'ts about 4:30am, I'm gonna do the 10 minute workout (I can only do pushups for like 30 seconds) and a couple other things I don't go the full time so more like 8 minute workout.

    I'll grind something like 6am-9pm and mainly just drink the juice and water throughout the day with maybe a couple pieces of toast and a vega protein shake before and after.

    Yesterday I felt like I played really well playing the higher stakes stuff and it was reflected in my ev bb/100:



    It's a nice confidence boost to see the games are good still at the higher levels and stuff I saw a lot of recreational players and hilarious plays.

    I'm gonna really tighten up my multiway flats after going through my database pretty exstensively I see I'm not doing well with a lot of hands. I'm going to experiment with something like this for around 50-60bbs:

    This is an add-on for google called Momentum it's pretty sweet.
    They give you a nice picture and quote everyday and you can make a todo list with your main focus in the middle and it opens up everytime you open a new tab.
