Re: Never Back Down 5nl - 100nl Zoom

Nice post, Mirko

There's not a Poker player on this planet who hasn't got things to work on, both IRL and in respect to their game. Even the most elite players have weaknesses/leaks that they work to plug. This is evidenced by the meta game consistently changing at all stakes.

I am sure you will figure it out. It might take 1 week, it might take 1 month, it might even take another year, but so long as you work hard and stay focused, you will get there. Nothing of value comes easily in life, and the only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.

I think you have a solid game that is more than capable of beating 25z, it's just about being on the right side of variance sometimes! As you said you have come a long way this year, so the 1mill BE stretch is not accurate to your current approach.

GL mate!

GL mate!
Thank you so much!

Stuborness plays a big role and sometimes its good, but in the beginning I was stuborn to not learn and just build on false myths that i will get better by just playing. Watching it from my current perspective now, back then i learned a lot of bad habits and ive build my game from bad rescources, which like you see guys it took some time to be fixed. Im very pleased how it went and i dont regret a single month. A few months ago I heard something like, Don't wish it was easier, whish you were better. Don't wish for more favourable win, thats like whishing something thats not gonna occur.

Re: Never Back Down 5nl - 100nl Zoom

Nice thread, takes some courage to post that 1M hand graph, actually there are a lot of people who are in the same boat as you. Probably hundreds of regs at all stakes who might think they are winning but are actually not and don't even have it in them to reflect on their game to conclude there is something fundamentally wrong in their approach.

Goodluck with all your goals!

Re: Never Back Down 5nl - 100nl Zoom

January came fast, Its a new year and a fresh start. We did not have the best start, but everything is aight and we gonna finish the year strong! I have something in mind, so I will start January by playing a little bit of 10nl and then move up to 25nl after a few 10-20k hands.


Today






1)

no hands, i Just kinda wonder about the river

Hero (CO): $11.30 (113 bb)
UTG: $10.12 (101.2 bb)
BTN: $7.70 (77 bb)
BB: $13.07 (130.7 bb)
SB: $18.08 (180.8 bb)
MP: $10.23 (102.3 bb)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A T
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

Flop: ($0.75) 8 2 3 (2 players)
Hero bets $0.23, BTN calls $0.23

Turn: ($1.21) 9 (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN checks

River: ($1.21) K (2 players)

BTN: $10 (100 bb)
Hero (SB): $10.45 (104.5 bb)
UTG: $14.27 (142.7 bb)
MP: $10.94 (109.4 bb)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 3 A

Re: Never Back Down 5nl - 100nl Zoom

h1 - think flop can go either way tbh no big deal. River doesn't seem great given you have a lot of other hands that you should choose to bluff with first, and bluffing this hand combo prob means you are overbluffing. altho that may not matter at 25z, still rather check imo

h2 - looks good to me

Re: Never Back Down 5nl - 100nl Zoom

This is going to be a bit of a different post, where i am wondering if i should had buried my head in shame and not post, or listen to what my philosophy teacher taught me, dont beat yourself up, but just sit and write down where you think you've messed up, never forget it, and never do it again. So right now even though ashamed, im taking the different approach. Starting a little bit earlier, I had small problems in the past with BlackJack, DB Roulette, but with help i managed to get out of it and delete that page of my life, until yesterday. I finished my session yesterday and was waiting my movie to be downloaded, meanwhile i restarted the PS client and saw that they've added the Casino feature for my country aaaand here we go with deciding to just play a little bit untill the movie is finished with downloading. As u might guess I started with 1-2$ bets and prolly 20 min later i was betting the max on both BJ and db Roulette, u can guess the end right? Teh sad part is i was gonna take shots tommorow at 25nl with the intention of not moving back down

Why are you moving up to 25nl when you haven't beaten 5nl yet? It would be the best way to improve but it could get costly.

If I was you I would just focus hard on what BJ as cost you here, and what you could of potentially been making, also I would be looking to work on the mental game to, seems like a lot of us need it at the moment in cfp .

      bet flop h1, this board heavily favours your calling range, you have all sets etc.

      It won't be the best way to improve that would be like saying you can just jump into 100/200 NL and improved you fastest because it would cost you the most that is not how it works.
      You could take a shot and run hot, but maybe be even worse skillwise than you started
