ILCD - why don't you move out of the hood and move in with your parents in the burbs? Serious question - you need to get out of there man.

Winning even one or two of those pots would still look like a pretty good month, while losing almost all of them is really frustrating.

All of these are from my past 5 sessions:

A5 vs 45 AI on T55 flop, turn 4. $500 pot.
TT vs AJ on AJT5 board AI on turn, river J. $700 pot.
57 vs A8 on 567 flop AI on flop, 9 on turn. $900 pot.
AQ vs K9 AI preflop, flop K99. $700 pot.
QQ vs slow-played KK on 88T85 board. $900 pot.
KK vs slow-played AA on QJ925 board. $700 pot.


I know variance will swing it the other way eventually, but still....frustrating.
ugh. Been there, done that. Hope it turns around for you. Try to keep in mind that you ran hotter than the sun for the first 3 months of the year, and that you still have an absurdly high WR. IDK if that'll help, but maybe?

I know it happens to everyone eventually, just sucks when it hits you in the face. Had another one recently against my friend where I got in A2s against his AK on the turn on a A267 board after I raised flop and shoved turn with PSB and he spiked a K on river to scoop a $700 pot. Probably running like $3-4k under EV the past two weeks.

On a more positive note, my foray into 2/5 has gone pretty well so far with an average win of $309 over 9 sessions playing only 3-4 hours/session. Small sample size but hopefully I can keep that up.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

To be fair, in terms of bb, my line would probably be fairly consistent. Essentially during that period I ran bad at the big games and did okay at medium ones, and it's not really a break even so much as an upward graph, a downswing, then upswing.

Actually if you want to be really nitty, what you can take away from that graph and say "lol if we remove the two periods of your graph where you were running like god, you haven't actually won that much!

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Why do people focus on the negative, shouldn't it be "WOW 35k upswing, what a box!"?

I want to put it out there that entire breakeven stretch was probably my time in Australia. Stupid dumb country.

No, because the whole graph is a general upswing, so people will obviously point out the difference, which is the negative.

You won like 100k in the main event, you cant complain. I guess if i ever leave the country i will crush harder than you, considering you BE your entire time here.

That's some creative rounding up. =(

This is all in pounds too so it's actually a bit more.

It's cash only. I'm not even up that much in MTTs now, sickeningly enough.

I'm in the middle of one of those myself horrific stuff seems to happen every time I approach a poker table been 2 outtered so often I won't even complain unless its a 1 outer, I took two days off returned and same stuff again. Did 3 buy ins, one with top two against top and bottom which got there, another with 88 on a 822 board (was shown quads) and saving the best till last AK on QJ10 board all in on flop against 99 and I lose, s#*ts unreal. Taking a week off and going to Barcelona with gf take my mind off everything, dropped near enough a quarter of my roll in a week *covers face*, morale is low and just feel like rubbish overall.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

50p/50p £20 min buyin £100 max rake. 10% £6 max. its very soft with lots of action and the average stacks are 100bb+

How about this.

1/1 £40 min £200 max same rake. Game is for the most part soft. can consist of 1-3 semi competent - good players.

Is either game beatable given the rake ?

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

144 hrs of play in last 3 months, up 1009 total. 3.5 bb/hr over presumably 4k hands. Still a small sample size. :/

Working at it...trying to be less of a nit.

Sounds very difficult, but maybe for like a small profit.

Is it tougher to beat the 1/2nl 4+1 in California than a 1/1 10% 6 max in England ?

I know they are taking less in terms of big blinds but I think the pots on average are of simular size. I'm having trouble figuring it out cus on the one hand you can say "well they take out 6bb of every pot 60+ pot" but in Cali they only take 2.5 but the pot has to be 50+ for them to take the same in England (pretending the currency is the same)

so a 60+ pot will be raked 6 >50 will be raked less. So in the big scheme of things is it really that much worse in comparison ? Coupled with that you don't tip.

Am I thinking about this all wrong ?? Does the fact they are taking alot more in terms of bb mean something I'm missing.

Sorry for long post I'm just confused.

It's the combination of rake and average stack size at the table.

If a game is raking $6 and the average stack size is at $50, odds of beating the game is very low.

On the other hand, if it's a spewfest like Florida, even though rake is high, it's still highly profitable.

Be realistic with your expectation.

Nice plug, though the charts just look aesthetically unpleasing.

Also do not understand why anyone would convert poker time into anything but hours and minutes.
