Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Bankroll back at $504

My volume dropped a lot since I came back home, most of it is because of the internship, I'm always tired after work, so I'm mostly studying during the week, my study to play ratio is probably around 5:1 now. I don't like playing while tired, so relaxing and watching RIO videos are cool. Learned a lot of stuff, and it seems that I'm playing always my A-game(which is super aggressive overall, but lower flop cbets).

This is my graph of NL16 since reload introduced me to thinking poker, some hands around the 4k mark are bugged because of a huge thunderstorm that turned the PC off and PT4 crashed like crazy:



Played only 1.5k hands so far, will try to put some volume this friday, I'm sure I'll be able to hit my 10k hands goal through this month, although it would be nice to reach 20k.


About my life here, I'm working and will start studying law/accounting with my father every day, so 8h of work + 2h of studying(it takes me 1h to get to work D: ). My internship is in a clothes factory, in the first day people assigned me to a ****ty job(measuring times of the machines and productivity), I said that it was sub-optimal and gave some ideas, people enjoyed it and started helping me with the stuff.

Basically after that, in the 4 days of work I had, I walked through all areas of the factory looking for data/places to improve, and found out around $15k of stock that wasn't being used for more than 1.5 years, found out that some areas of the factory have way more capacity than they're using, so got a meeting with the director tomorrow where I'll show him this stuff. Found out other kind of stuff, like people aren't using the rights method to predict the demand. But it's more delicate stuff, it has to deal with people, and I'm pretty bad at that kind of stuff.

What it looked to be a ****ty job, turned out to be a decent place, where I could help the company and put into practice all I learned in the university. I don't gain anything by doing that, but for me it's way better this way. Will work there until June 16, then will get my diploma =DDDDDDDDD.

After that, I'll have even less time to play poker, since I'll start studying full-time to pass in the government job I want, but will manage to negotiate some time with my parents to at least be able to play poker.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Bankroll still at $500, played only 5k hands so far, this is the first day that I got out of work and had enough energy to play, but internet here in my parents' home is so bad lol(only during 5PM-9PM during weekdays for some reason lol)

Even though this volume is just ridiculous, I'm 2-tabling and focusing on learning and getting better. I think I would make more per hour by 4-tabling, but it doesn't matter the money I make on these stakes, I would just donate it in higher stakes like I did before.

Month so far



Some cool hands I played in the last weekend

H1: Guy looked like an aggro fish, still tanking a lot OTR on those calls(which I presume this should be an easy one)

I think I should have bet OTT and jammed the river because most regs in NL16/NL25 call there with AJ/AQ, sometimes even All Ax lol. As played, easy fold

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

H1) Unless you have seen some really big bluffs by him i would probably fold the river (in general from my experience people don´t bluff the busted FD OTR often enough). And if you know he is capable of doing somthing like this it becomes kind of a snapcall

H2) fold to 4bet?

H3) looks fine especially looking at his stats so far. Imo he has AK (and AQ) in his range and play it exactly like this given the way you played your hand. I feel like he would bet 99 bigger OTT, right?

H4) yeah ez river fold. maybe consider ch/ca already OTT when you feel/know he is agressive. i would still ch/ca turn, ch/fold river if he shoves like this.

H5) betting turn sounds good. i guess bet/folding OTT would be appropriate since Regs can definetly have AK in that spot and also the other sets so your 2pair becomes pretty weak. As played fold river all day long like you did
What about choosing a larger sizing OTF? Obviously just from exploitative POV.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

You're the most results oriented player I have seen on this forum. When you catch a bluff, you ask everyone "I presume this is an easy call?" (H1 for example) then when you run into the nuts, you ask everyone "Easy fold, I assume this is never a bluff?".

If you focused on the decisions and not the end results, you might be a good player. But for now, no chance. Until you fix your thinking from results oriented to decision oriented.

vs an aggro fish, its an easy call, vs a nit I fold the turn on h1

a good poker player should adjust his ranges vs each opponent, I'm not calling 2-pairs on that river when villain is never bluffing or valuebetting worse =p
