my name is Michael, 21 years old and im living in germany. I started and learned poker at ps. After i read occasionally only as a guest, i decided to join this forum.
There are 2 goals, i want to reach with that kind of blog:
Im studying business information systems in the first semester and i wanna reach a good final certificate. "Good" means 1.x would be great, but definitely better than 2.5. I will update to this issue from time to time, but not in a very high frequency. I think it is really boring to read how i learn. (yeah i like the similies in this forum). But I think tracking the steps to reach that goal will motivate me and i can call regularly in mind that study > poker.
I started poker with LHE, switched to NLHE 6max and now im playing HU only.
My bankroll is slightly over 4k and so im playing nl100. When i reach 6k i`ll play nl200 until I dropped to 5k. I really hope ftp relaunched in the near future, cause that would be a bankroll boost for me. I start playing regs @nl200 when i reach 10k.
ahja, one benefit of this blog is to improve my english. I think I am in urgent need of doing this. So feel free to tell me my mistakes.
Hi thank u! I`m pleased someone answered to my posting .
In the near future im not going to play live, cause my bankroll is a little bit low for playing NL200€. But when the bankroll grows (i hope so), i will playing live for a change and for fun, but not mainly.
I think this is a really tough fold. I mean i`ve got TPTK in 3bet Pot but actually he was passive and i assume he would play his draws passively as well. Ofcourse he is a fish and he could do weird things, but ya i think this fold is fine.
I tilted a little bit vs him, for example i 2nd barreld with less EQ, although he folded anything and 2 times i snapped really really light the river. In retrospect i tilted, cause i really often missed the board. Ofcourse u win vs these guys by thin value betting..blabla, but i cant vb 8hi.
An interesting point is, that he folded to contibets flop/turn/river 21%/(61), 13%/(24) and 67%/(6).
That means 3rd barreling would be nuts, but i didn`t implement this . I think it is difficult to 3rd barrel callingstations, but next time when i have proper reads i will consider that option.
I remember that i said to myself ingame : "argh u have to squeeze more value out of this fish, he plays so worse."
I was dissatisfied with the result against this huge fish but the point is, i think my edge vs these kind of fishes are more less than i imagine. I mean i beat him with 10 ptBB in EV and that`s fine.
Yes ofcourse, after my exames i can record a video. Do u prefer a reg at NL100 or a bum at NL200?
First i played HU besides 6max and then i switched roughly to HU 3 months before blackfriday.
After BF i was really demotivated and played poker very rarely. Maybe i played lifetime round about 60-70k hands HU? Yes that could be about right.
ok allright, but i think I´ll profit most of all .
Now guys, it`s time for a update.
Last days, i played not much...round about 4 session. One loosing, one BE and two winning sessions. I´m nearly 5k up this month with rakeback. Really enjoyable. I can recommend everyone starting a blog, u will run hot like jesus
I marked many hands in HM, but here are only some of them.
Pity, he didn`t jam the river. But okay he has Ahi. Non SDV he would jam for sure, i think.
I still have a few random suckout hands, but probably i would bore u.
The rest of the week i wont play much, because I have to do a lot of work at the appartment. My girlfriend and me move in together and there a few things to do. And at the beginning of the next week it is already carnival
So guys have a nice time and thank you for reading!
