it seems retarded to fold sets like that, but you haven't seen what a game filled with nits is all about.
I was happy, stole their blinds, folded when they had a hand, still got money from fish.

The nittiness came to a point that a winning reg would fold fullhouses easily on single raised pots, getting it in only with quads+ vs another nit.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Played 8k hands today (2-tabling NL16 ZOOM)
Got to $230, but ended with $350

Having a better grasp of the game, managed to make some good hero calls(my biggest weakness when it comes to strategy), My stats are showing that I'm way less spewy.

Graph of the month:



Some hands are missing, probably 10% because lolstars is bugged as ****
Will try to put volume like that tomorrow, the goal is to keep playing well and get rolled for NL50 by friday so I can move up there in the easiest day of the week.

I've folded kings pre once(without counting missclicks/internet lag), Sometimes it's the right play, 6-max is way different than 9-max when it comes to how nitty you can be. The rule was like that: no set no bet.

a nit reg's calling range vs UTG+1 in the SB is made of only 22-QQ, maybe AQ, but I think he folds them pre, in NL10 FR, 2013, a nit ofc. On that dry board he couldn't be raising with anything but a bigger set.

Vs super exploitative players, you have to go super exploitative too, right? Why people can call my double barrel + 150% river overbets with A high in a 3-bet pot and I can't fold a set vs a huge nit's raise?

For me, it's such a fishy way to think, that's why there are a ton of nits in NL16-NL25-NL50 ZOOM, regfish can't fold their overpairs vs obvious sets.

Also people love to take stabs in the pot, so at least I get those, or in that case, get a stack for free OTR lol.

and in MW pots I'm betting only draws OTF, sets, lower flushes, overpairs, so it's better to include some nuttish hands in my checking range this hand which is the best candidate. Not that it matters in these stakes or even in higher ones. But it's good practice

The massive overshove is also super profitable vs fish/bad regs, some guys can't fold, so it's a mistake to make it 39 bb rather than take this guy's stack.

blackrain79 taught me well in the ways of getting maximum value off fish haha

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

btw, yesterday's session was 20h long lol
Woke up pretty tired, will rest for a while before I come back to the tables again.

One interesting thing about that session is that I was able to willingly control and change my ranges as I wanted, which is something that I couldn't do, sometimes I would cbet and don't think about the consequences

I used to end with 80%-90% cbet which was killing me vs annoying regs who would float, then I would need to make more double barrels, then triple barrels, then people were calling me off with A high again lol

By check-folding more I reduced a lot of my losses in those spots

Also I was playing pretty well in the last hours of the session, even after that many hours playing. Over 8k hands tilted off only 2 BI(which is still huge, but an improvement, only -2.5bb/100). Also since I'm a little crazy people tilt off to me as well, got 3 tilted stacks in that session.

I should focus on playing solid, a lot of times I bluff because "it's too obvious I have an overpair here, so why not bluff too?" But people in these stakes don't think like that.

I'm jealous that you are in a place in life where you can play a 20h session of zoom. I could do neither 20 hours nor zoom.

Vacation lol
I could be playing pretty hard in the last 2 years, but was annoyed by poker, had depression, was doing few subjects from the university(reproved a lot because of depression/burnout and decided to keep it slow). So was just playing HS/mtg.

But after I graduate my life will turn into hell, will have to study more than 10h/day for 1-2 years so I can pass in the tests to get a good government job.
That was something I wasn't sure I could do before I came back to poker, after my depression I couldn't focus, studied something like 15 mins/day(not counting when I went to classes). After this time playing poker hardcore I got back my "spark" of determination.

Quote:
"The Loser is back" complete ****** ass loser that wastes time
Something that people like that can't understand: nothing is a waste of time, even in those 2 years, when I could have easily finished the university in 1 year wasn't a waste off time. Every time you end up with something, even if you fail, you at least learn something. In that time I couldn't go on a faster pace, so it was fine.

Even though I'm not loving having this huge downswing, "wasting 2 months" of play, I'm getting out of this with more poker knowledge, more determination, more confidence that I'll be able to do my best, pass in that government job I want, which I wasn't sure I could.

It's not that my family is rich, we're in a comfortable situation, always went into the best private schools, went to one of the best universities of my country(it's free at least, but had to own a bunch of people during high school), had the opportunity to study/do almost any hobby I could, but I'll have to work and earn my money. The good thing is that if I get that government job, I'll probably work 6 hours/day, earn something around 6-7k/month. So I'll have time to follow my plans outside of work, with that much free time, like getting better at investing, working hard to be the best in the games I like(mtg, poker, dota), travel, have a good time with my friends.

While a lot of my friends from university are working like crazy, some of them are working for 16h/day, 3 months straight, sometimes working on weekends for 3k/month. Engineers are exploited a lot in the private sector in my country. Of course some are doing pretty well, there's a girl from my class that went to wall street, working in goldman sachs, one guy is at google, but for the majority, they're having a tough time.

My main plan is to get a government job in the city my parents live so I can live with them, save a lot of money and invest so I can have my money working for me. It looks silly but rent is expensive as crazy in Brazil. Unless I want to live in a ****hole, which is fine by me if my parents kick me off their house haha.

Even though raised in a good middle-high class environment I don't have problems in living in a poor place. It's better to live in a humble place for a while and make your money work for you in the long term than to work all your life for that money. No matter how ****ty is your house, it's still way better than having to work like crazy lol.

lots of people hate me
yesterday I 3-betted a reg, he talked to the BB "4-bet him"
he 4-betted me, the guy said "haha, gg"

some guys wait a lot to play vs me and make me as a target, guys tank a lot when I'm betting, don't wanting to ever fold the best hand.

but there are some cool guys in there who are nice to me, say they enjoy my posts, "gl out of this downswing" haha

That's not a good sign. That means they think you're a fish.

Maybe you are a fish, or maybe you're just projecting the image of a fish. Once you get a large enough hand sample, only then will we know which of these is true.

BTN is short stack and presumed fish. Doesn't matter what pio says.... It's a disaster if any Xd checks behind and doesn't "bluff" and most people will. You get value from these hands more if you just bet yourself. If BTN was solid reg, sure, fine, I'll get behind you, but we don't have that info and its 16nl

I disagree. I think we're missing pretty easy value here. BTN is checking behind with an huge majority of their range, but is likely to call a bet with anything that connects with this flop. Plus with Hero's image, I don't know why we wouldn't bet when we have the nut flush.

I guess I don't think it's a massive mistake, but I don't see how we get more value with our very strong hand by checking.
