One by one is your best bet for accuracy.

Agree with cbayly, but would the software let you enter your profit so far as one long session?

Hack the import/export file using Excel or something.

Should be rather straight forward.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I took the worst 30 hr session of my life this weekend, and once again I'm below 10K. I can't seem to stay above it to save my life.

The beats were so bad, that it actually made me question whether I had the willpower to steady the course.

Lost 1550 at 1/3. Was sick to my stomach. Lost 6 huge pots being at LEAST a 4/1 favorite on every one Lost every one of them. The other two was a 3/1 dog with royal flush draw against set of 8's on 54bb pre pot with 130bbs left, and top 2 otf against flopped flush for 100bbs.

Still sick to my stomach about it, but I'm resting this entire week, and hitting it again Friday. Going to put in some major hours this week studying, and come back with a level head and start to feed off of 1/2 fishes again till my bankroll is over 10K.

Had to get this off my chest.....I apologize.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Hi Guys - Today is my first day on this forum. I have a few questions and I want to thank ahead of time for any help and advice. Sorry for the long post ahead of time

I learned poker during moneymakers win in 2003 but have been primarily a live player. anyway, i have played off and on since then and where i started as a winning player against really bad players I think I am more of a break even player today but i am even questioning that in the middle of a bad downswing.

1) How without all the nifty acronyms/stats offered when you play online with the fancy tools do you determine if you suck? or if you just need to wait it out?

2) I live in colorado where we can't play no-limit but instead have to play these 100$ spread games. I enjoy playing the 2/5 100 Spread and sometimes Ill play the 1/2 100 Spread. Given I imagine the Spread rolls should be lower the NL at the same levels given it can play like limit later in the hand what do you recommend they should be?

Bankroll question

I have roughly $700 in my bankroll and intend to play 1 session for 12 hours at my local casino. What is the best way to optimize profitability with regards to stakes/buyin? I intend to play NL holdem; my casino offers 1-2 (60 min 300 max) , 2-5 (200 min 500 max) and 5-10 (500 min 2k max). I used to play online and was a decent winner at midstakes mtts/cash games. To be clear, I want seasoned live players recomending which stakes to play and how much to buy in for. This is a hypothetical situation posed to settle a bet with a friend, so please treat it as such.

Re: Bankroll question

1 session only? Is it a poker only $700 or $700 left to your name?

I would play $100 buy in at 1/2 and then see what happens. 12 hours is a long time and if you have to last that long then lower stakes is the best option.

This makes sense, however, I want to know what buyin would be the most profitable. So clearly 1/2 makes sense to start, should i buy in min for $60 or max for $300? I also want to state that I am extremely comfortable playing both deepstacked and shortstacked poker.

Re: Bankroll question

If your going to have a spin - 200/200/300 at 200nl If you get up over 800 in profit, take 500 at try the 500nl if you think there's any value If you bust, rebuy for 300 into the 200nl

If your going to grind then stay in the 200nl for 12hrs

Tricky to answer not knowing your objective

According to Tony Bigcharles you should be playing 2/4 seven card stud.

This seems reasonable. If you run ok you should be able to grind for 12 hours. I would avoid going to 2/5, unless its the last hour or so of the 12 hours and you have previously run super hot.

Re: Bankroll question

It sounds like you don't get out to the casino much and the $700 won't hurt you financially. Start with $200 at $1/2 NL and reload to $200 if you get below $50. No reason to discuss bankroll for only 1 session. Leave yourself 3 1/2 buyins and make some money!!

Without knowing anything about you as a poker player, question is rather moot.

I like the idea of buying in for a100$ in1-2. Play a couple of hours at 100$ and top up if you get below 50$.

Live games are a different animal than online games. Raises preflop tend to be much larger for starters. Get comfortable for a few hours and if you feel like you can handle it, top up to 300$ then.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

WTH do not buy in for $100.

Buy in for $200 and play ABC poker and have 3 bullets. Or/also hopefully you get comfortable and can top off to $300 after a bit.

Here are some live tips, as an online 6maxer you are like horribly prepared for live 1/2.

1). Do not bluff. Like ever. I mean like aside from cbetting when heads up. There's no such thing as a scare card in 1/2. If someone has TPNK they are not folding.

2). Tighten pf range. Don't squeeze, don't 3! light, etc.

3). Basically there's zero FE. So don't bluff, but valuetown hard. I mean really hard. Take b/b/b lines with TPGK+ like always.

4). By the same token you will see less bluffs. Someone 3! you pre? That is AKs/QQ+ and with some villains KK+ only.

I mean I'm saying all of this in an exaggerated comedic manner for effect, but for the most part I'm 100% serious.

I would also recommend leaving atm card at home. First time live experiences can be especially tilting for former online players.

Best of luck. You will be amazed at what you are called down with.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Anyone ever run a filter by winrate/hourly for weekends vs. weekdays? I live in NYC so I can only really play on the weekends, so wanted to compare my hourly to other people's weekend hourly.

I'm assuming much higher than weekday?
