re: Grinding past the fries

We've definitely played a lot of hands against each other. I'm a part-time player at 50NL Zoom. I'm sure you'll guess my username...

Subbed and GL dude... As long as you're not taking my money like earlier today...

To be sure to be sure I know ye!!! Can't believe you folded AK there... especially vs me... wp!

I've been playing throughout the night again, sleep pattern's a bit messed up at the moment. 10 tabling hudless, I'm making steady $ whilst grinding out a lot of FPPs, don't see the harm in it. The graph...



The session started off really poorly, I kept getting my AA and KK cracked. Started spewing a tad at the end so decided to give up. Only one hand, QQ is DaWarsaw, JJ is unknown. Brutal to give me hope like that on the turn, only to be taken away

    Be careful at 100NL. I've taken shots a few times this year and the standard is a lot better IMO. Make sure you can afford to take a hit if it goes badly.

    Imo, it's too soon for 100NL. I'd prioritise debts firstly if I were you.

    You're having a great month but I would still say you are unproven at 50NL unless I have missed it. It's not to say you're not beating the games, but that you should hang around a little longer. I'm merely referring to sample size.




    One thing to try (I hear it's juicy) might be the NL Deep ante tables?

    I took a shot once before, whilst I didn't run particularly well I was way out my depth at times!

    Ty for the advice. I've played a lot of 50nl this year. Feb/March was slightly losing, maybe b/e at best, so it is only really 4 months I've been playing (since those months I have worked so hard on my game tho, I'm not just a fish on a heater... honest!). As for deep/ante, I used to play them last year when I wasn't very good, my losses were huge lol. I think you're right re real life debts, it wouldn't be nice to drop 5/6 BIs at 100nl when that would make a big difference in the real world.

    Of course!


    EDIT - one thing I've noticed as well is that over the past week I have seen a LOT of Zoom regs playing the ordinary tables, wonder why that is.

    ^ yeah I know



    I played okay today, just never got any action with my big hands. I have lost all my player notes for some reason and I've no idea how to get them back, a swift
    email to Stars might help.

    I lost my player notes a while back, if the file's gone and you don't back it up you're ****ed. Back up your notes file always.

    System restore lol. Yes that will work... If you actually have some restore points to go back to.

    It will obviously also delete anything you have done to ur PC since that timeframe if you don't back it up.

    Don't spend anything less than half your cashout on anniversary celebrations or you'll be a veritable cheapskate.

    You've had 10/4/3k results in MTTs and you still complain?

    My sample is obviously close to zero, lol.. but I've only FT'd the Big $4.40 once, and there I got sucked out AA < AK - otherwise I take the 3.9k$ home biggest score so far.. would love to get one over 1k$ any time soon

    re: Grinding past the fries

    I'll reply to your PM later Steve, in a bit of a hurry just now.

    Shambles of a day, everything was a 3bet, bet, bet, jam. Not once was I all in pre with AA or KK. A combination of some serious runbad and some major spew. I rallied a bit at the end, that could have been insanely bad a day had I not.



    This hand just sums up the entire ***** day... villian is your average reg-fish.

      re: Grinding past the fries

      The last 24 hours. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.



      I was 100% determined to break even, but what an absolute waste of time that was. The first 5k hands were unlike anything I've ever seen in my life, cooler after cooler after cooler. Grabbed a few hands in play but stopped after a while coz it was just rigoddamndiculous. When the below happened, I just burst out laughing. No rage, no frustration, just pure what the eff laughter. Took a quick s/shot coz it just summed up the day.



      A couple more...

              MP: $50 (100 bb)
              CO: $50 (100 bb)

              Preflop: Hero is SB with 3 K
              UTG calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero completes, BB checks

              Flop: ($1.50) 6 Q 9 (3 players)
              Hero bets $1.43, BB raises to $4.26, UTG folds, Hero raises to $15.50, BB raises to $105.97 and is all-in, Hero calls $90.47

              Turn: ($213.44) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)
              River: ($213.44) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

              So yeah, 21 hours straight with a few breaks here and there. Not ideal, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Roll is now at $1968 (I panicked and re-deposited $500 of the previous cashout at the lowest point of the day), $2823.08 profit (excluding plolol and SCOOP), and a whopping 100,739 fpps.

              Flame away.

              re: Grinding past the fries

              wow, the AA hand is brutal

              still, i think the hands you posted are a very good example of how bad luck is often followed by bad play. (you could've saved at least a buyin in the last hand, barring reads that villain is batsh* crazy and sticks in 200bbs in a limped pot with a J-high flush or worse).

              These spots are more important than they appear to be. Let's say something like this happens once every 20k hands. Then thats a blow to your winrate of -0.5 bb/100, assuming you could have saved 100bbs.
