We may have a mutual acquaintance then. I have a buddy that plays poker that was a national champ...unless you live in Fl in which case I know you directly ( I don't believe you do).

Considering there's only a handful of national champions, and narrowing it down even further to those who play poker... you must be talking about Chris. Ah cool, yeah I know him.

You are a crusher (Both in terms of win rate and work ethic, I struggle to put in 30-40 hours a week and I don't even have a job... Only a few hours of pesky university) :3

Congrats and keep it up!

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I think a leak that I have developed is failing to table select or seat select when I'm at a bad table/seat. And if there are no good games in the room, then just leave.

The circus of "everybody at table limp/calls 40% of hands, we see every flop 6 handed, half the table is stationy while other half is trappy" has become the nut low for me. I used to have a ton of patience for this type of card catching game, but have lost some of that. Maybe that's due to the downswing?

Table/seat selection is pretty important to overall winrate, imo.

The card catching game you describe is a pretty awesome table, no? Patience is certainly key at these tables as you can't force anything.

Congrats YGO, keep up the solid play.

I notice in ur graph that the 1st month was relatively dismal, but ur results skyrocketed after that. Did u made adjustments towards the end of June or is it just variance?

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I'll update my graph in the next 8 weeks.

Well, it's a bit of both. To just briefly go over it, I've dabbled in a bit of poker online and with friends since I was young, but despite having a card game background I was only marginal having not invested a large time in studying it. In January I took my net worth of $500 (I would buy in for $100) and started driving to the casino every weekend (it's a 2 hour drive) playing about 30 hours Fri-Sunday, and after playing solid nitty poker, built a healthy roll. As my game and roll improved, I was able to slowly experiment with taking more +EV lines that I couldn't with my 10 buy-in BR.

That 1st month when I started keeping track was when I started experimenting with a more LAGish type of style, and I happened to also be running horrid, I wasn't steaming but I'd say I was upset, so tilt/playing bad did account for probably half that weekend of a 2.2k loss over 2 days. Despite the huge loss, I feel it still helped me improve my game.

Anyway, yeah my results have been improving a lot since January, and I don't at all feel I've been running like god. I've just been adjusting to the field and the players, playing more aggressively and exploiting them more has gotten me paid in many spots that my nitty image wouldn't have - also allowing me to value bet thinner and not just check down my marginal hands. My game right now is miles ahead of what is was 3 months ago, and thinking of my game 7 months ago makes me cringe lol.

I'm just gonna leave this one here. Bloodbath in the market this week. Down 6% since I made that post on August 10th.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

So a little background first:

I'm your average guy in his early 30s. Life is great, life roll is fine. I've played cards for several years, though with one big problem. I would just...play. No studying, no analysis of my game, no tracking of my stats, nothing. I would just show up, play, and go home.

But last summer I went through a really bad downswing where I lost about a dozen sessions in a row. I guess that's all it took.

I took some time off, registered a new 2+2 account, and made a genuine effort to study and polish my game. I also browse CLP and listen to some of their podcasts. Feels pretty sheepish to say it took that long, but oh well, full disclosure.

I started tracking last summer and have officially been tracking for one year. I get to play, on average, once a week. Here is how things stand so far:

All stats are 1/2 with $5+$1, $300 max BI

336 hours, 41 minutes
63 sessions
+$7,881.00
$23.40/hr

44 wins (69.8%)
18 losses (28.6%)
1 BE (1.6%)
Std Dev ($142.18/hr)

I feel pretty good about the results so far. But the sample size is lol. Had a horrible session a couple weeks ago that dropped my WR by $3 I believe. Before that, my WR was hovering around $27-28. So just a small example of how this WR can not be confirmed as being anywhere close to steady.

I want to thank all the good contributors of this forum. As I alluded to earlier, having an asset like 2+2 was something I was missing in my game. I'll be eager to see what happens over the next few hundred hours.

Thanks for reading, and good luck at the tables.

I flop a set of 7s on an A7x board. My V & I get it all in & he flips over AA. I flip my 77.

Turn is a 7 & everyone starts cheering for an A, which tells me nobody had an ace.

Spoiler:


I turn a straight flush. On the river the board has a pair of 8s & Js. My V goes all in.......I'm praying for quad 8s or Js.

Boom. Great job. 350 hrs is small but I mean almost no one is winning that much over that type of sample. You should be stoked!

I second the thanks to 2p2. CLP is great also.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

For 1/3, my stats for the past year (8/1/2014-7/31/2015) are $5,523 over 320 hours for an approximate rate of $17.30/hr. W-L is 40-23.

However, my roll was at $7,000 in June. So over the past 90 hours I played in June and July I lost almost $1500. One of my biggest leaks was overplaying TPTK and overpairs, paying off two pair and sets when the villains were showing obvious strength. But these leaks certainly didn't define the entirety of this stretch. I adjusted my play accordingly, but continued to run poor.

My confidence is pretty low at this point so an objective opinion would be appreciated. $1500 over 90 hours is a lot in my opinion. Or should I get over it and continue playing as these numbers aren't meaningful til I get to 1000 hours....

500bb over 90 hours isn't terrible. But it's hard to play winning poker when your confidence is shot. Might need to take a break. Post some HH where the bets get big, win or lose, to get some feedback.
