re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

When I was playing counter-strike pretty seriously, for an extended period of time I disabled the crouch button (obviously I never did this during like a legit match) so that when I wanted to slow down to shoot I had to stop crouching. Dunno, who here has all played CS but like you can't run and shoot, you have to stop completely and burst fire. However, the action happens so fast that often times you don't think you just act and I knew I had to retrain my body to act in a different way if I wanted to get in the habit of being able to run, stop, fire 2 or 3 bullets, run then stop. So I disabled the crouch. Don't get me wrong, I died in so many lol ways and people got visibly upset during pick-up-games when I couldn't hop over a box because I had no crouch button but I was able to address all the problems I had.

Saying you aren't going to bluff for the next 100 hours, or you aren't going to bluff catch in the next 100 hours, likely will cost you money in very certain spots although obviously if the mean value of your bluffs is -EV then it will save you money. But doing weird things like that as training to improve your game isn't a bad thing.

Think of it like Tommy Angelo having people fold AA pf.

****, maybe the next time I get KK I should fold pf.

Then you probably need to work on your post-flop game. There are lots of spots for +EV bluffs in low-stakes NL especially if you have any "fit or folders" in your game. Even the "one-timers" who peel flop c-bets lightly will get destroyed by well-timed 2 barrels and even 3 barrels.

This is a pretty solid analogy lol. Idk how the **** you could play without crouching though.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Ha, if you have teh AK when strafing in 1.6 you could tap the strafe the other way and there is like this tiny 1/3 second window where you can pop off 2 rounds dead center wherever your mouse is aimed

Here's to hoping, an I will post updates ITT cause this is the winrate thread amirite? Ill prolly do it for the next 300hrs tbh
+ 1 million. I was disgusted with myself last night after dropping 70bb trying to bluff the two spots at my table.

No more bluffs for me either.

My other leak is trying FPS **** vs the good regs. Need to turn my ego off at the door to the poker room

It's one thing to bluff someone off a middle pair, another to try to represent straight when the guy is holding 2p+.

I don't even try making people fold top top.

I would also shun a smoking hot, successful, smart woman for fear that she'll dump me later.

Checking in for the first time. Here's my 2013 so far at 1/2:



Going to start putting in at least 20 hours per week with a bankroll of 2k buying in for 200 at 1/2. If I double my stack I will get up and take a break and rebuy with 200 to reduce my risk of ruin until I get a full 20 BI bankroll.

I have a full time job and live at home still so no rent to worry about, just taking my shot while I'm still young enough to do it. Going down to AC Sat-Mon to grind every week as long as my bankroll will allow me to.

Lets get it.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

What bankroll is required if I plan to play shortstacked live 1/2? I'm underrolled for buying in full due to some non-poker related things.

I'm aware that I'm reducing win-rates heavily by buying in short, but it beats not playing at all. I plan to buy in for about $50-$75.

I wouldn't even play if you're going to do that. Save up money and wait till you can buy in full.

I'll take half of my normal, full-stacked win-rate over my win-rate of not playing ($0/hour).

It won't be half. You may not even beat the rake.

Heh. For real though, full stack is overrated, although I believe what matters more is the absolute value of money than number of bb's.

Like for example, buying in as much as possible would be very important in a .50/1.00 game, whereas short stacking 5/10 would be just fine.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

If we're the best player at the table (especially postflop), then shortstacking is beyond ******ed.

I guess you play a lot more 200bb pots than I do.

That must be the case if you shortstack.

I actually rarely play huge pots.

My method is to typically try to get into a pot for cheap, hit a hand, and then stack someone. I can't do that method if I'm shortstacking cuz I would have to play a lot tighter. Plus, if I do happen to get into a hand against another 100bb player, I'm confident that I'm usually better at playing a 100bb stack than my opponent is; why would I purposely negate this advantage?
