I would like to move up from 2/5 in stakes after finishing an hours goal at 2/5, but I donít know of many/any 5/10+ games that are reasonably close to me.

Idk how youíd go about tracking to begin with. Maybe what DK said.

Maybe saying ďI quit early this month and look how Iím up 10k over a 750 hand sampleĒ. Itís definitely because of the quiting early not the distribution of hands

Yeah, I do when possible, but unfortunately they only allow blind raises UTG (no straddle) where I play. I’ll definitely do it if most of the table is, but usually there’s a few people who don’t wanna and it dies quick cuz it’s an unfair advantage for those that aren’t.

Have you tried Political Beats pod? They do deep dives into artists and cover their whole discography. A lot of artists I'm not interested in but some that you might like include REM, Talk Talk, New Order, Talking Heads, Replacements and few others. Worth a listen IMO.

No OMD or Kraftwerk yet tho.

Pretty sure 95% of my winrate comes from patience/discipline/low-tilt (I'm the best in the room in this regards, and it's not close) and 5% from my ~ok/workable strategy.

While I certainly understand the benefits of improving our weaknesses, I always take the perhaps cynical view that most people are talent capped in every area of life. So it's likely much more important to recognize your weaknesses and simply avoid spots where they can be exploited.

I'm sure Slim is dreading at looking at the death page today, pretty sure someone he likes has bit it every day this week.

Thereís a thing in poker called EV that can explain why quitting after stacking a guy in the first orbit doesnít make a whole lot of sense

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Well expected value would need to be defined. If we are talking about hand equities then you are correct.

But the expected value of a session, or winrate, or whatever higher level you want to go is not the summation of hand equities. There are very fluid, subjective things that go into a non-gto players winrate. Fatigue, mental game, etc. (i.e. mistake factor)

I would assume most of my winrate comes from managing these subjective pieces.

However sticking with math for a second, I have already explained how increasing stack depth can result in incremental unrealized equity. With each additional vpip hero's equity becomes harder to realize. I'm not just talking about pot equity but actual realizable equity.

For example heads up lets say your equity is 50/50 for the sake of argument. 5 ways your equity is 20/80. (I realize with ranges it is vastly different but for simplicity assuming equal pot shares/ranges.)

In the heads up scenario if you are a good player it is possible to over-realize your equity. (Villain overfolds). In the 5 way scenario if you are an exceptional player you will still never realize your 20% equity. It is probably something like half.

The stipulation here being that as your stack depth increases you get more action.

I'm not arguing ^^above is the driving factor, but I am explaining how even holding mental game and fatigue constant one can have a declining expectation over time as stack depth grows. There is ofc much more to it then this, like increased implied odds when deep, and how much this could offset the negatives, etc.

Really its just mental game though. I'm not sure why this is generating such hate. I have stated that I win alot more when playing shorter and I play better when Im content with wins. Reminds me of the hate gg gets when all he does is post impressive results and lets us know how he gets them. Man this place is toxic.

To be fair, being the best player means little when you get coolered all the time and run awful in all-in equity in large pots.

I did not mean that as a negative. I admire people that are masters of their craft, and do believe you are very likely a master of poker (going off the days you used to post more strat).

I was mostly saying for me poker isnt something I want to master or be the best at. I think its fishing for me. I have a huge ego wrt fishing and had a bit of fame in the panhandle and I loved that feeling. Just different strokes.

in re: weaknesses, work on your weaknesses to get them to nearly average. Law of diminishing returns basically says you get the most bang for your buck in the beginning. So improving your worst aspect will help you the most. Of course I am assuming that poker is like football.

Yeah no worries I didn't take it as a negative.

How does one become the best at fishing? I know nothing about fishing.

1/3: 350 hours

1/2: 408 hours


Definitely sucks not getting enough hours in to really know. Itís what made me stop worrying about lifetime and overall stake win rates. The game changes so much and my game changes too.

I play about 450 hours per year which still isnít enough to glean much. I had a brilliant year last year and honestly felt I had cracked the game completely but it was only 300 hours of 2/5/10 so relatively meaningless. But when I first moved up to 2/5 about 6 years ago, I went from being 11bb/hr at 2/3 to having a losing or break even year at 2/5. Was only about 250 hours as well but definitely felt out of my depth for a while and in need of adjustment

I definitely feel that if youíre underrolled then quitting to lock in a win is just fine, particularly if you start thinking too much about the money and adjust your play (consciously or unconsciously). The more comfortable you get with roll and level the lore youíll hopefully be able to battle it out for longer
