Focussing on poker from Feb 18 onwards, don't want to look at a graph where I played nearly half a million hands and made a sh*t amount.

It's amazing, I can't actually describe the difference between 6-8 tabling and 16-18 tabling. 3/3 solid winning days since I've stopped mass tabling.

Gone from making 8k+ vpps a day to making 2,5-4k vpps a day. But gone from losing/chasing losses most days to rarely losing a pot! The latter >>> the former!

When I set up a 2013 excel spreadsheet the main column I highlighted was the VPP count. I am so f**king stupid for doing that. I haven't cared about rakeback for 3-4+ years now, idk why I started to in 2013.
Spoiler:
I guess it's the 7 stars And the fact I wanted to cash out all the VPPs and fpps in 1 day asap. No point having that $100k+ day if you're going to lose $50k+ or whatever getting there. In my defence I do think the PS dealer has sh*t on me in 2013...
My gf even said wtf are you doing counting Vpps, change the VPP count to $ won/lost you idiot. So I did...

One thing that'll get your woman's attention: when you stop making as much of dat money as possible

I ain't sayin' she's a gold digger... but she don't want no broke niggah
[/joke]

In other news, glad to hear it's turning around! Seems like there's quite a few cash players hell bent on getting SNE when I don't think that's really the reason any of you are successful at cash :P

^^ Thanks.

3 days have gone since I've toned down the amount of tables big time. Up $10,3k in 20k hands (13,7k at zoom). I was winning at a nice rate of like 9 EVbb/100 but that's now at 1 because I just lost like 10 buy-ins at Zoom500

Do you still find yourself playing mostly zoom or are you trying to switch over to mainly regular tables?

I like zoom. I find it easier than than the 3/6 and 5/10 games, and as I get more hands / hour with it --> can make more money there. But yeah as I said, played 14k hands now at zoom500 out of the 21k since cutting down on mass grinding, so about 2/3 of my volume is there.

Well it does sound like a bunch of rubbish to be honest. I'm not up to date with high level psychiatric work but detecting loops in thought patterns seems just a bit scifi, maybe he meant loops in brain activity or something? I guess it just seems like psychiatric evaluations never seem to have extremely precise results like this, especially not 3 of 4 spot on ones.

Well yeah it's not all fake. I certainly have empathy for people who struggle in any kind of way emotionally. There is certainly something to be learned from his post.

When I'm playing poker and my girlfriend says something to me, I can hear the words but I can't begin to process them at all unless I kinda stop and re-listen and actually process what she's saying. She could literally say 'there is a fire, we need to get out now' and I'd not react one single bit. However I don't think this mindset is exclusive to poker, I'm pretty sure it's just called concentrating.

I agree. I definitely wouldn't associate that directly with poker. Happens whenever I'm concentrating on something

in a way i wanna agree. but i also tend to feel that this state is much more intense when playing poker as compared to lets say reading a book or sth.

that loop he was talking bout sounded like some kind of round railtrack along which our thoughts keep circling and thats hard to get out of once we are on said track/loop? i can deffo relate but i m not sure thats actually a bad thing as it makes us more productive when we do play.

pretty sure said loop doesnt have much of a day to day impact on our other parts of life tho

Just going to point out that it happens to my fiancée more than it happens to me! She gets typing/reading something I may as well be talking to a deaf girl.

I read that article a couple days ago and felt that it happened with me too. I tended to listen to my gf talk when I'm playing guitar/grinding but I don't give any replies better than "Oh..."

It seems that there are many people who play poker who show symptoms of this, but it probably doesn't mean causality.

As stated by a few people this is purely to do with concentration and nothing to do with poker-specifics.

Either way, there's a big thread in NVG.
