Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

Interesting and good poast about different kind of variance, wich i certainly can relate to.

Card distribution is also a subcategory of variance. In my last couple of sessions i seem to run KK into AA alot, or AQ into AK. But when i pick up AA, i cant remember last time someone got dealt KK and its destined to double me up.

Or when you flop sets on small raggy boards, your opponent has whiffed AQ/AK- instead of that big overpair you want him to have.

The amount of situations related to card distribution variance can almost go on forever.

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

I got back on Sunday, didnít play because I was super tired of a 12h drive, so I went to bed at midnight, which was by far the earliest I got to bed this year. I did however play on Monday and yesterday. Both sessions were pretty annoying. I ran quite well to be honest, but ran bad when it matters the most. It sometimes is more frustrating to run like that, than just bricking everything, because every session like that feels like a waste and a lost opportunity. On Monday, I build quite a lot of stacks, bubbled a few tournaments, had a semi deep run in the h16, got almost a final table bubble in the 55 ko on party, and at the end of my session I went from being 1/6 to 6th in an 11r on ipoker failing to save the day. I ended up booking a relative small loss on Monday, and did play some tournaments on Tuesday as well. It turned out pretty much the same, build again a lot of stacks, bubbled a few tournaments rather annoying, and managed to catch some heat in my last tournaments. I however went from 1/15 & 5/30 to bust in 7th & 20-something. Both had a nice first up top, but thatís poker. Itís hard to rate my game, and be biased because of the amount of stacks Iíve build, but I feel like I am not playing my A game all the time. Itís obviously hard to do so, but Iíve made some minor mistakes (even in push/fold spots) so canít rate my game not much higher than B- for the past two days. I am happy that my winrate seems to be improving post ante, would be nice if I could keep that up since it was horrific for the past couple of months.

Also had an interesting discussion/chat with Ďcard coreí on skype where we went on to discuss one hand (and basically just the flop decision) for over an hour. Itís always refreshing to meet new people who might have a different thinking process in some spots. Iím not saying I always try to be 100% balanced, but I tend to think I take a more balanced approach in a lot of spots compared to most of the regs. It basically was a spot whereas betting > checking, but I decided to check the flop to strengthen/protect my checking range somewhat. I sometimes look at these spots like this, and itís something which has slipped into my game due to the playing style of my backer/coach. Iím however well aware he has to be much more balanced in the games he is playing compared to midstakes mttís. So it was a flop where clearly betting was better than checking, but I felt like if I sometimes check this hand, it could/would improve my general EV/strategy. So letís say purely hypothetical, the EV of betting the hand is 6 and the EV of checking is 5.5, then clearly betting is better than checking on the FLOP, however it could be (Iím not saying it was) so that if you check this hand for example 20% of the time, your overall EV in the hand improves from 8 to 8.25. Iím aware itís a very theoretical approach, and maybe too theoretical for midstakes mttís, so itís something Iím gonna pay some more attention to. We basically discussed this for over an hour, and it was a very productive chat really.

Iím gonna take today off, as Iím going to a concert from ĎDaughterí tonight in Brussels. Probably taking tomorrow of as well, but might play an early morning/afternoon session, not sure about that yet. I am also looking to get back more to the gym on a regular basis, since I started slacking due to exams/holidays. I made a sidebet (while I was very drunk) In Barcelona whether or not I could gain 10kg in one year (and it canít be all body fat). Letís just say Iím a really big dog at the moment. I am thinking of going hardcore because no one believes Iím able to make it, but I should really start eating more regulary/healthy as well then so Iím still somewhat hesitant about that. I am a very picky eater in general, so itís really hard for me to adjust my eating pattern properly. I also thought it would be more enjoyable if Iíd provide some graphs from now one, so Iím gonna keep a fictional roll status/graph update starting from this year too.

As you can see I havenít played much so far. I did play 5 (and a half) full sessions, averaging around 30 mttís/session which seems to be a decent number. I have a policy against playing more than 12 tables, so usually I try to reg the most valuable tournaments first, and if there is some space free, Iíll add some smaller ones/bowls to fill the gaps.



Iím gonna wrap this up with some pictures of my winter holiday.

Yeah for sure. The game we are pursuing is sometimes just ridicilous.

Man, you describe so well those situations that i feel like i'm reading my own blog!

The way you talk about variance generally is so close to what i'm feeling about this s**t, that i really enjoy reading your posts. Anyway, those days you said, that you feel like you ran good and you should have won a ton of money but nothing happens, are indeed the most annoying thing in this game. They cause you the thought "If i can't even win on my rungoods then when the hell will i win???"

Keep it up and it will come bro.

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

Ok, bigger update incoming. As I already told you, I ran horrible on Sunday. Just didn’t really have a chance, got momentum, overall very frustrating since I’ve ran super bad on Sunday throughout my ‘poker career’. I don’t have all my databases anymore, but wouldn’t surprise me if I was down close to 1000ABI on Sunday. Don’t really want to turn this into a whining blog however, so let’s move on to what happened earlier this week.

Played a session on Monday which had so much potential, ran super hot for like an hour and a half, and had stacks everywhere. Unfortunately that’s where the heat stopped, and I ended up being somewhat breakeven for the day. I also bought piosolver earlier this week, and it has been really interesting. I think the most interesting part was building my own ranges, and try to determine what population tendencies are in a lot of spots. I then crunched some numbers for several spots. I think I got the most out of realizing which board favors who, etc. instead of the actual output numbers. It’s super hard to implement a proper piosolver strategy, since it wants to use a mixed strategy with so many hands, so I think it’s probably overrated to try and copy that. However, realizing which board favours who, and what sizings are the most optimal, etc is a much more valuable approach to it imho. I also reviewed a few hand histories this week, and it’s funny how your game changes so much in just a couple of months. I reviewed a tournament from late 2015, and I found myself doing quite some stuff different today compared to then. Like picking different 3betting hands, using different sizings, etc. I once heard a saying that if you look back at your game 6 months from now, and you think you haven’t changed/improved, you are doing something wrong, so I was pretty happy with that review in general.

Yesterday’s session funnily enough was my worst ev bb/100 session in a while, think it was just variance/skewed though due to punting a bit pre-ante in good spots, where villain happened to have top of range or whatever. Post ante bb/100 looked good again, so I rather take that with me instead of focusing on high variance pre-ante winrate. I couldn’t get much going yesterday, besides one tournament, which was a 50fo bowl on Ipoker. I absolutely played great throughout that tournament. Had a decent chiplead with 14 left, and then started to lose almost every pot. Standard variance stuff like not getting through cbets on A82r, being outflopped etc anyway got to the final table as 6/9 and stacks were pretty equal. I laddered a few spots, and eventually found myself reshoving from the sb against aggressive chipleader (who had heaps) but bb woke unfortunately. Last final tables have been really annoying, but I actually think I am playing very good at those final tables. I think one of my main strengths is measuring how much of an impact ICM has on these final tables, and trying to come up with a strategy to leverage that/really tighten up and reduce variance depending on spots. For example, there was one hand where I limp/jammed AQo with a 22bb stack UTG 6 handed, where I felt raise/calling was quite disastrous icm wise.

In other news, I already went to the gym twice this week, and looking to get in a 3rd one too. Picking up the pace again, and regaining some power I built up last year. First session after not going really surprised me how quick you lose the gained power, but apparently it doesn’t take too long to rebuild it too. I also ordered a new computer mouse, since I am pretty oi about my Logitech G500. Have had this one for years, but lately it hasn’t been as comfortable as it used to, also the wire is somewhat screwed, so I figured it was time for a change. Ordered some ergonomic mouse (evoluent 4 – apparently Hollywood haxton has the same -), which I am pretty excited about. Main strength of it should be the more natural/neutral position of your arm compared to usual mouses. Would be nice if I could have it before my upcoming Sunday session.



There was one super interesting hand in yesterday’s session by the way. This one Is with 75 left (63 paid) in party’s 109FO. UTG had been pretty aggressive so far. Pre super std obviously, but flop is really interesting. Obviously if there isn’t icm involved, it’s a standard call, but now it’s a really weird/tough spot. If we look at it, there are a lot of turns where we will just have to x/f our hand. Also, there is something to be said to prevail some fold equity to get in some reshoves. I’m not sure what’s the best play, I’ve had different answers from my friends, so would be cool if some of you chimed in on the discussion. In the past, I’ve done a lot of calling in this spot, because I have middle pair and backdoor flushdraw, but I’ve been rethinking these spots lately. It’s hard to measure exact EV of both plays obviously, so it more or less becomes a guessing spot. Would really appreciate some feedback on this one.





Post ante winrate graph so far for the year, let’s see if we can continue that upwards trent.

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

Nice thread, subbed! Funny, I bought the exact same mouse 2 weeks ago because I was getting more and more pain in my right arm from grinding long hours. Since I'm actually left handed I ordered the left version of the evoluent. Took a couple of days to get used to, but in combination with hotkeys it now works perfect for me and I hardly have to use my right arm anymore. GL at the tables!

Have been bingewatching 'narcos' pretty bad. 7 episodes in a row, going in to the final now. awesome series. it's amazing how you can still root for escobar, even though you see him being responsible for thousands of deaths.

I forget to write that PLO is very interesting and funny game but be careful if u play it coz u can very easy go into deep tilt. Its interesting that if u play some different games then NLHE u develop more skills and its very helpful imo.

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

meh silly day. built so many stacks, cashed quite a lot of timbeys, even made some money, yet i'm feeling somewhat unhappy again. got 6th in a 109 on party (cruel flip & runout for 2/6) which felt quite 'double'. was short from last 20, so can't really complain that much i guess. really happy with my play for the day though, feels like the work i've put in with piosolver earlier this week was a good investment. at the end of my session, I went from 1/60 to stalling itm in a 20r on ipoker after a unfortunate turn of events, and to top it off lost a huge flip in the 109 bounty builder with 80 left. one day, i'm gonna win those flips guys, one day

haha tell me about it. I had like 10/12 winning plo sessions in january, and then lost it all in one session over the span of maybe an hour and a half. last buy ins def were tilt haha. Decided to stop cashgaming PLO online after that, pbb was breakeven for the adventure in the end, so that's not too bad

Figured we need some more threadsavers

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

Played a 200 turbo @wpt brussels today and took 3rd for 2.5k eventually. Ran absurdly well until ft (for example, was already chipleader @h4h and I see kings in sb, raise in a spot where I will raise atc, and bb jams etc) I and other guy both had around 400-500k, while there was only 1.6 mil in play lmao. Anyway shortstacks kept doubling up etc, eventually made it to the official final table (still as 2/9) and then lost a pretty crucial flip with 99 vs ak, was short and cartdead after that. laddered quite some spots, eventually we were 5 handed, and people were making so many mistakes with these shortstacks. there was one guy who was 3/5 with 8bigs and he just ripped 87o utg, ridicilously bad really. bb woke up with queens so I laddered with my 5-6 bigs myself. Then won a flip against neighbour, to get me up 3 handed (500k vs 300k & 800k) and then sb jammed 280k in bb40k I called T9s in bb and lost vs K8, and then lost Kx vs Ax bvb for last couple of blinds. Can't really complain though, ran super super hot before final table, and laddered some spots while I was getting short as well. Really enjoyed these shortstack decisions, even though I'm sometimes clueless on them haha. Apparently T9s is pretty much a snap, and I tank called but whatever, people are way tighter live pbb than they should be, don't think I could have folded though.

There was one sick spot by the way. bb6k utg jams 35k utg+1 asks for a count and then jams 90k himself, I am utg+2 with jacks and 90k as well (7 handed and we cover rest of table). this is also with 20 left & 15 paid. I really was pretty clueless but eventually shrug called it off and went on to win the flip vs AQ (& QT shorty) Not really sure it was a call, gonna plug it in icmizer later. seems super close, tens def a fold, queens def a call, also I thought with him asking for a count I could exclude some monsters perhaps (AK QQ always jams, KK+ could be trapping sometimes but whatever)


this was my stack just before the ft

pbb gonna play 330 8max tmrw as well, and main 1b on friday or whatever. gotta use that sunrun.

Re: my 2016 mtt pgc: doing things right

*warning raging post incoming*

Ok not gonna lie. I'm feeling ****ing devastated right now. Don't care I bricked 2 bullets in the 1200 wpt main, don't care that I didn't even got above starting stack, don't care I only won 5 hands for the whole ****ing day, don't care that I only mincashed the ****ing sunday storm on sunday, it really didn't affect me at all. But it are sessions are like these which are ****ing with my head. I'm even up some money - like it really doesn't matter with the pile of make-up I currently have - and i'm ****ing raging. First there was the 22 6m prog ko, I somehow got from 90bbs and 3/47 to busto in 44th or w/e in like one orbit. Couldn't even do anything about it, so frustrating again to not being able to continue to run good towards the end. Then I start to run pretty well in last tournament of the day, which was the 109 on party with 5 fig's up top. I find myself sitting 3/20 again with a solid 40-50bb's, and then I just start losing every freaking pot again. Slowly see myself dwindling down the leaderboard. 15 left, I got it in with AK vs QK on K88 for a comfortable 35bb's again (which is a lot on partypoker with their crapshoot endgame). What do you know? River king. A few hands later I jam last 12bb in sb with t8o into the vaamoos chipleader - who was ****ing terrible - who had somehow jacks in the big blind while he already had a gazillian bb's. Drawing dead on turn, good ****ing game. At first, I didn't really want to post whines in these thread, but I really have to get this off my chest. It's ****ing absurd how I've been running for the past 2 years. I'm not a pro, so yeah in games it pbb isn't that much - although I would estimate it's over 6k games right now - but it is really sickening how I've run in big equity spots. To be honest, I don't even care about the money. My amount of make-up is at such a high it wouldn't even change that much, but it's just that nagging feeling of falling short over and over again. I'm sure there are people who run worse than me, but I'm also pretty ****ing positive there are a lot of people who have it much better than me. Whatever, i'm done raging now. Can't do anything about it really, just have to keep battling in the end.

*end rage*

In other news, I did my first 85km of the year on my race bike on sunday morning. It was the 'omloop het nieuwsblad for cycling amateurs/recs'. Included some minor hills and a few cobble stone sections. Was quite exhausted towards the end. Think I gained some power by going to the gym more regulary though, so I am exicted to see how I'll develop this year. Last year, I was getting in a really good shape, improving a lot of PR's on hills etc and then had to quit due to a knee injury. Fortunately, this seems to be resolved now. Wasn't really plus ev for the pokerz by the way, because I was ****ing exhausted when I got back home, watched a cycling race, then took a 2 hr nap and played a small'ish session with only the really good value mtt's. Only lost 1k, so maybe it was a good decision after all. (ha DUCY)



We definitely need some threadsavers in here too.





Oh almost forgot to mention, had a decent piece in a friend of mine who got 5th in the wpt 1200 main, so that was not too bad either.

Cheers, hopefully the next blogpost will be a more positive one. tournament poker can be a *****

great scores mate!!

oh that 2nd threadsaver!!!!!! mmmmmm

want to know what your stars name is too haha

Sorry to hear how bad you feel bro. The variance is real and it kills. I think the hardest part of being an MTT grinder is dealing with the mental aspect of it. Because prolonged variance, negative or positive can have a direct affect on your game and potentially even your processes. The worst part of run bad is like you say, when you run bad in the high equity spots.

We all know the dangers of being results orientated. But, when results trend in a negative way for a prolonged period of time it is natural to ask questions.

It ****ing hurts and I know where your coming from mate so don't worry. Keep doing your thing. Self belief is pretty crucial. but it is easier said than one.

I know you know all this anyway. but still, the way I see it is this, if your a good MTT player you WILL do well in the (****ing) long run...

IF....

....

you can fade GOING INSANE.

so if you can keep your head on, you will be fine

best of luck and hope to see you HU in some red thing soon!
