Yeah I think when I started turn betting I was getting a fold almost every time, so I started doing it without thinking much, instead of picking good spots.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

Played 670 hands this morning and was down $50 then up $50. Finished up $15.04. Pretty sure I'm on a bad run of cards, and it's not all down to bad play. For example the first time I flopped a set and actually got action the other guy had a higher set. My end of week graph is going to look really bad. Bit of a rollercoaster.

Anyway my total BR is @ $939.71. Down about $100 from its highest point.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

I suggest posting your top winning and losing hands for sessions. Post ones that you find may be questionable, then mix in a few of your medium win/loss hands that are around +40bb or -25bb so we can see how you're playing hands that aren't AI type pots.

Yeah I have thought about and I have played it, but I dont really like the concept of rush poker. Also if i played rush I wouldn't be able to play six tables, maybe two or three at most so it wouldn't really help with volume.

Top winning hands from last seesion.

with rush you can play 4 tables of 25nl and thats 1k hands/hr thats wayy more volume that you could wish reg games

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

I think you're still under betting. Can you post a few typical hands...

1 that you CB after missing with a high card hand in position on the flop.
2 that you flop TPGK/TPTK and CB the flop in position.
1 that you CB flop and turn in position.
1 that you steal from the button and CB the flop.

Don't want to see raises postflop, just betting and calling/folding.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

My advice: Leave RUSH Poker for what it is, first it is full of nits and secondly you automatically start to act fast so less concentration and less reads.

Your doing very fine, keep up the good work, Respect!

Exactly I might get more volume but I would have a smaller winrate so probably not worth it.

Don't want to see raises postflop, just betting and calling/folding.

Re: $500 to $5k this summer

I have this thread added to my faves watchlist and check in on it every other day.

Lyger if youre using a PT can you include in your daily report the following at each level:

Started on: (was it 05/26?)
Amount of Hands played to date at 25NL:
Amount Won:
bb /100:

Also how many tables are you playing at a time? You're a fine player and will do well dont let anybody else criticize your plays, everybody plays differently there are different approaches. I do like your style though its similar to mine (I'll defend ya if a troll comes at ya) though its very basic principles ... raise 3x pre (take advantage of the limpers with an extra 1x raise), keep a tight range on your hands in early position, loosen up your range in late position, follow with a c/bet, and be creative checking strong hands. Pretty simple, Ive done very well and I know you will too by looking at your HH's. Ive played up to 1kNL and if you ever get up to 600NL+ you'll add in a couple more plays to your game that has been different from the lower stakes. So keep what you're doing, you wouldnt have any problem beating 100NL which plays similar to the 25NL you're playing. Its $100 max buyin who doesnt have that! You'll find Aunt Peggies at 100NL (thats my way of saying anybody can play this stake). So dont fret the higher stakes. One advice I can give you is to put in at least 50k hands at each level before you advance. If you have an upswing at 25NL for example you dont want the downswing to happen at 50NL. I'll ttyl ===
