I have been absolutely crushing live poker as of late. I can honestly say my last ~100ish hours of poker I played near optimal and ran pretty good. Getting super paid on my value hands by sitting in the right games. Bluffing reg kids that have a fold button and a face up 1 pair hand. Leaving when the game gets bad/I get tired... Feels good to finally be where I'm supposed to be at.
To be honest I kind of underestimated the difficulty of live poker. I had a wtf I'm a winning internet grinder and these guys are drunk degens, I can close my eyes and crush.
Poker-wise I feel as though that's pretty close to true, but the patience, endurance and ability to adjust to most live playertypes is something I think I've developed. Also no play in the pits.
My first half a dozen times or so at the casino it was a legitimate challenge to walk past the craps tables/roulette wheels full of fun and beautiful girls, but now it really isn't even a thought. Never before have I had a "gambling itch", very rarely do I bet sports and I'm a huge sports fan, absolutely hate the idea of lottery tickets, but I have always enjoyed craps/blackjack on my biannual trips to turning stone (18+ casino in upstate ny). Being able to avoid those things at my local(ish) casino was a concern for me, and I feel I have done well to stay clear.
Anyways- the grind. My sessions are shorter, my play is better, the games are better, I'm more comfortable, it's going well. I still hate socializing with the morons who frequent my casino, but it's nothing an ipod can't fix.
I have made some very sick folds my past few sessions. Including folding aces to a turn c/r from a tighter player repping narrow, and folding a baby flush to a huge AI on a paired board. As I type those folds they sound so standard and plausible, but it used to be difficult for me to make those folds live.
Here's my overall pokerjournal- it includes the last 9 sessions on mine.
Can anyone clarify what (raw) game hours vs real hrs means?
I do not think this hourly is sustainable. I see people claim 20-25 in the winrates thread in LLSNL but it seems too high.
The rest + graph:
My last 9 sessions: (All the ones entered on 11/3 are cause I transferred data from PJ lite into the pro version I bought that day.)
And of course- my balla pic
Hope it's not illegal to post pics of chips or w/e.. Thanks for reading.
