I just lost 1500 to someone who has never won that much in their entire career since 2008 in one day acording to ptr

**** MY LIFE

Absolute Poker $15.00/$30.00 Limit Hold'em - 2 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

Pre Flop: (1.667 SB) Hero is BB with 9 J
BTN/SB raises, Hero calls

Flop: (4 SB) 7 8 T (2 players)
Hero checks, BTN/SB checks

Turn: (2 BB) 7 (2 players)
Hero bets, BTN/SB calls

River: (4 BB) 5 (2 players)
Hero bets, BTN/SB raises, Hero 3-bets, BTN/SB caps!, Hero calls

Final Pot: 12 BB
BTN/SB shows 5 5
Hero shows 9 J
(Rake: $0.75)

I just dont know what to do... the players havent changed... I table select to the point where I only play people who have an established ptr history of losing 3bb+ or they limp they button. otherwise i quit. I am 100% sure my own play has not changed to warrant this drastic of a decrease in winrate.

I actually am at the point where I am beginning to think the game itself is no longer the same. It simply is no longer a skill game when i play and I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

thank god for drinking
$8k up in a month? O boohoo life sure sucks. V standard bad beat, had someone call me down w 42o oop earlier, no draw, hit 2 on the river to beat AKs with a million outs, the usual. He said 'I thought you were bluffing'. Did I cry? No I loled quite a lot (as in really, not in the chat), but it's to be statistically expected, surely a professional should understand and take such a fundamental part of the game before commiting their income to it. Taken a $2k battering at 15-30 and 10-20 in 200 hands today, still smiling cos the opposite happened a few days ago, as anyone would expect.
Fully respect your game and history but with that attitude the tunnel probably is indeed a borehole.

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

8k is worthless in 30 days, whats your average BB? You are playing 15/30 there. If that's your avg you've still made >250BBs. Not the greatest winrate but blows my mind that having a positive winrate over 30 days and be tilted enough to post and ***** here.

There's people recently who posted like X month long breakevens, 400BB downswings etc.

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

after a night of heavy drinking reconciliation and randomly seeing bone thugs perform at someones house i feel like a ***** for whining. ty for the perspective. i truly am a shameful person when tilted but I guess at least I took it out on the NC thread instead of just playing tilted.

It truly is a good amt of money but i felt it wasnt for the amount of work i put in this month. Literally like 200+ hrs probably more including waiting time. Still life is good i guess. and variance LDO

but a 1/3-1/4 pay cut is such a beating no matter what. Also keep in mind that my january was breakeven and then I had to take a almost half of february off to not fail out of school. Haven't even hit 5 figs this year w/ around 350 hrs put in including live. and i gotta ship many many times that in taxes in a mo.

that being said I should be grateful. I agree with alot of the above posts, sometimes when ur tilted its hard to have perspective. I also think that my mental and attitude is detoriating a bit as gwhunt says bc of how insanely long ive been practically BE.

probably am gonna take another break and go to vegas this week this game has been ruff as ****. Truly appreciate the flaming, sometimes u need to be told ur whining and tilted to actually make a change.

considering begging some of the OG's for coaching

I mean I wouldn't be so pissed if my hourly/ winrate werent so ridiculously low over the last 50k hands. 8k is a tight score but its not so tight when im making like 30 an hr playing games where I have 10k swings. All in all i just see that im doing the typical tilt thing, denying reason, claiming that I make no mistakes. its all foolish and undisciplined, all that aside the attitude certainly costs me $ (example, instead of just taking the 1500 hit and grinding I was to tilted to play so that just costs me hours = $)

8k per month is good but I have a feeling alot of the regs here could easily make that playing even 3-6 and 5-10 probably 10g+ at 3bb but they just dont put in the effort for the 30-40k months that IMO are necessary to have meaningful volume as a pro

any good life tilt books/ poker psychiatrists? (always thought this would be a gold mine niche profession)

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

Tommy Angelo is supposed to have a good reputation in dealing with poker/life tilt. I think a 3 day consultation with him costs about what you've made in the past month.

Do yourself a favour: Get a Deuces Cracked membership and watch "The Eightfold Path to Poker Enlightenment" video series. 8 vids by Tommy, it is a pleasure to watch, there is no poker table discussion, just poker psychology; believe me, it is the thing you really need now.

The vids are infinitely more useful than just EOP.

This series is the single most useful video series out there if you are a poker pro and have problems with tilting: it is so much more +EV than any strategy vid.

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

I asked him nicely and he said he would close them. Whether he does or not we will see. I would block but I have been warned by Stars.

Cue Itsadamyay to stop in and tell us how we all have too much time on our hands

Apparently he is one of those tournament winners who dump their winnings at the cash games.

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

I've got to run. Some of you guys should definitely gang-bang this guy though. That is what I think we should call having a bunch of people play a player at once when he's trying to get action on multiple tables.

Re: HUHU NC/LC Thread for March

Yeah he wasn't terrible HU but I think I had an edge, and I'm sure I'm not the best player in this thread by a long shot.

This hand was fun, second hand of the match.

mjkidd raises in the sb with 86, Lileor calls

flop: 7T9
Lileor checks, mjkidd bets, Lileor raises, mjkidd 3bets, Lileor caps, mjkidd calls

Turn: T
Lileor bets, mjkidd raises, Lileor calls

River: 9
Lileor checks, mjkidd checks

Lileor shows J9 and wins 199.50
mjkidd mucks 86

After that the match broke my way though.

That's true, and he should get a good part of it back with his SNE rakeback. Still, I find it really disheartening to play so many hands and be down, but I guess that's what happens when you have no game selection and multitable regs.
