today was the purest form of aids i have run in a long time. playd suepr well and was focussed throughout just lost all the pots. prob somewhere clsoe to my biggest losing day and after doing all my accounting i m looking at a -20k month which is by far the biggest i have dropped in a long time.

BUT, i feel like i have live up to the competition during scoop, played higher than i ever have and not lost my cool at all. the thiings i did have control over i did very well and so this loss doesnt even feel that bad, its def an experience which has helped me grow as a player. i made day 2 of the french 2k€ 6max mtt as a short stack, so have two day 2s tomorrow which i m gonna grind super hard trying to save what there is to be saved then take a few days off before returning on the online grind. i have canceeled my trip to vegas as i jsut dont feel like now is the best time for me to put myself out there. i will finish this year grinding online, relocate and then sort out the #lifeproaments next year in peace. theres no need to rush things and i ll focus on what feels right for now. good luck to all the heoes out there and thanks to all the investors that believed in me. it jsut wasnt meant to be this time

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

meh. played only those two second days on french stars but lost a number of key pots.

very first hand of the 2k sb jams 14bb in the sb and i snap A5o and lose to his 97s. then ran AJ into AQ to buste before the bubble

in the 1k i ran up a really big stack playing patient taking my spots and makig a few big hands. made one overbetbluff early on
flat T9 bb v btn

flop K34

goes check check

turn Q i lead for 70% pot he calls

river A i bomb 150% pot. seems fine he has 3 combos of KK the rest will just be puking super hard and he nevr has the nuts obviously #PLOlololol

then with 92 left and 90 cashing i was at a table where i had folded 4 times to 3bets but had been quiet for 3 orbits or so. i open Q5 in the hijack with one supershort guy on my left, one tighter reg on the button a tight fish in the small blind a nd a reg with 20ish bb in th ebig blind. loose but fine given my image and the fact that its the bubble and that i have a really good 4b stack vs the reg on the button were he to 3b me

bb flats

T92

i think betting big here is the way to go, put maximum pressure on his 9x and have enough equity vs anything to call it off. he tankjams T9 and i brick superhard after turning a gutshot as well.

that left me short, made it thru the buble and jammed a number of times, chopped A5 with AJ then lost 77 to AK for a nice 26bb stack. rly sad i couldnt make a deeper run in this, amazing structure with another break before the final table tomorrow. owell rostucod some of my losses so will take it obv.

gonna take a few days off, prob till sunday then go back to my 4day per week routine.

gl to all the heroes

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

so scoop has officially wrapped up. good news first: My buddy Azn1nvas1on whom i went out on le piss a ton in malta just chopped the medium main event headsup for mfkn 552k dollars. haha thats so insane, super happy for the guy, dont know many guys in poker who deserve this bink more than him.

bad news is that my graph is absolutely and utterly ruined.




but thats about all for the bad news, i m really looking forward to another about 5-6 weeks of solid grind while all the glory hunters are in vegas and then i ll allow myself a nice long summer holilday in spain. got a bnch of big plans lined up for the latter part of this year but i ll announce those as we approach them.

good news is that in my regular games i m still doing really well and i m looking to improve on the looks of this going forward.



the 2ks dont come along often enough to read much into them. every single bustout i had in them was a boring spot, and there were numerous pots i won that i wouldnt have even half a year ago. just still a bit sad that i couldnt manage better than 42nd, 44th, 43rd in this scoop but theres always wcoop innit

the very good news is that i feel i have made the jump to being a hsmtt reg. sure i ve gotten crushed but i think the main obstacle to overcome here is that mental barrier of playing a tournament that is worth what used to be a good month to me a couple years ago. i have taken thin spots in those like i feel i do in the big109 so this has been huge for me. excuse the massive ramblings in my latest couple posts, i m obv still digesting what has happened these last 2 weeks and trying to formulate some proper poker related goals going forward.

all in all i have lost pretty much exactly 17k$ this month including buying/selling action, rakeback etc which is whatever. my year is at 64k which is still decent 5 months in. not great obv but thats a solid foundation going into the summer grind

i thinkfor the grind days starting this sunday (maybe thursday) i will do a couple things

- play a slightly lower table count. i feel like at this point my hourly will not be helped by flicking in the odd 27 6m hyper. i will be playing an average buyin that requires a lot of focus and as such i might cut out a site or two to ensure i play super well all the time.

- play at the very least 4 days per week and review one day which entails at least 5 hours of solid strategy work. you will see me post a lot more hands than i have recently, i feel like this is something i have neglected for way too long

- LIVE. i have played super hard for a very long time, knowingly decreasing my time wit friends and family for a very long time. i will use this week but also both my scheduled off days to make sure i balance my grind with social life.

right that should be enough rambling. thanks for reading along guys there s some very big things incoming i m sure VAMOS

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

pretty trash sunday today.

feel like i played really well and played a lower av tbl count than i usually do on sundays. think i have found a really nice schedule to be playing now. think my average buyin is around 90 now while i have a lot of really soft mtts in there. gonna be doing some game selecting on stars and play 6 sites again. was bricking pretty hard today sadly and in the one deep run i made i made a rpetty crucial mistake:

http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...651_9CC730B22E

this is with 8 left in the sunday 200e 6max on french stars. button was massive CL and is probably 3betting between 15 and 25% in this spot he has 3bfolded before and no likely picks hands he can 5bjam vs my 4bet so 22+ ax and some broadways, possibly some trash like 84s as well, really wide. sb should know this and i figured he should seize the spot and jam pretty wide here (possibly any pair, ATs KQ etc) so i figured i am sufficiently ahead here to make the call while it turns out that even if he jams wide this is barely a b/e spot and i introduce massive variance in a spot where i have 40bb and a decent stack and can finde better spots. felt pretty meh about it as sb had top range i bricked and then chopped AQ with A8 and lost KQ v JJ on the ft to bust in 6th



came 56th in the sunday 500 just now and one tabling the 50$ superKO on party with 6 left atm.

dropped a bit under 21k in may, here s to a better june!

back latest tuesday maybe tomorrow

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

took a while off and was back on the grind today.

played super well and made a lot of runs but ran bad deep

26th Bigger 44
52nd Sunday warmup AA<AKs for big stack
22nd supersonic
19th french warmup with this beauty which was for cl:



i ve slacked really hard so far this month and this will end now. i ll play at least 4 sessions a week and will commit to at least try and get some regular workouts in. gonna go for a run tomorrow and hope to keep that up twice a week for starters. there really is no excuse for sitting on my ass getting fat when i have all the freedom in the world to be the best person i can both on and off the tables. lost a little today but not too bad. likely next session on tuesday

hey man i totally agree but cant get myself to do it atm lol

_________________


sup. havent updated cuz wasnt anything to update. i ve not been motivated at ALL this month. i ve just finished my 5th session or sth, 2 of which have been cash sessions. i m downswinging a bit but thats all good. struggling atm with goal setting and decision making irl. i m going to move to austria this year but i dont know when yet and given my dowenr i m nto sure i wanna rush things before i get back on track poker and life wise. i want to have it all done by october so theres still plenty of time.

year is currently at around 50k+. i ve played a bunch of plo100 and been doing okay in it which is nice. lolsample obv but its a good way to increase teh ev of the back end of my mtt sessions esp since the pool is ridic soft then compared to peak. i m again going to try and paly my 4 sessions per week and live life in between but no commitments and no freerolls. figuring i will jsut slip into grind mode sooner rather than later and forcing it wont do me any good. basically was my first lazy month this year so thats no big deal. will try and update after each session that i play

gl guyze

No but I did try and accompany her by sitting on the deck chair she was sitting on and in the process broke it in two and nearly killed both of us. I knew at that point that even if I was a dirty cheater it wasn't going to happen...
