Yo yo yo whats good errrrbody! I hope everyone's Sunday went well and that variance was on your side! Imma go ahead and get straight into it. This Journal is for my grind earlier today even though technically its 3am on the 23rd my grind was late on the 22nd.
I saved a couple hands from tonight's grind, one that I am proud of and one where i was in a spot and wasn't sure about. I plan on figuring out how to post HH by the end of next week for sure and hopefully in the next couple days. Also will be posting first 5k hands graph within the nexdt two days depending when i hit that.
The grind was mostly smooth tonight i think I only fell neg one time early on in the sesh just from bleeding. Had a couple spots where we called down in what i think were +EV spots and just got unlucky but mostly good things happening.
Pulled of a triple barrel bluff in a pretty awesome spot that worked out as well as pretty cool max value river overbet. I feel dumb talking about these hands and not posting them but again soon to come! It all went well and we were closing in on 900/1000 hands when we got the bad beat of the night.
Just a silly spot really. New player sits down at the table and is instantly typing in the chat being arrogant and annoying. I'm on the button with AA and UTG limps. Fold to new player who 4x in the cut of and i pot. UTG folds and cut off flats.
Pot is $9.50. The flop comes J34 rainbow and new player checks. I bet $6 leaving new player with less than a pot size bet behind, my intention of course to shove turn.
He calls and the turn is a meaningless 7, or so i think. Of course JJ is in his range but im still getting value from QQ KK AJ KJ QJ. If he has JJ im just going broke here and though it would hurt i was fine with that.
I ship the turn and he snaps, instantly JJ runs through my mind but then im blown away when opponent flips over 73off! What the fffuuuukkkkkkkkkkkkk.
Player proceeds to lose it all to the players around me in the next 20 min. Though I did make it all back from several hands in the last 100 hands it still hurt.
That being said I am very proud to say i didn't let it get to me. I continued on playing the same as i would had it not happened. Of course i called slighty wider against that one opponent but my decision making wasn't altered in the slightest!
When all was said and done we ended the night with a profit of $108 and 1010 hands played. Another great session in the books! If only i didn't go tilt mode that second session my 25nl graph would look sick! My red line is completely crushed from it haha but oh well
Having this blog to re motivate me every night as well as streaming on twitch.tv/TzurrR and hanging with a couple viewers has helped me immensely. As well as taking 5 min break every 1.5hrs. We got this guys! I also joined a discord with poker enthusiasts to go over hands with
Side note ive been focusing much more on table selection and leaving when i feel i can find better elsewhere. Something i never really did in the past but i feel and have been told is very important. So im very pleased with that.
Well that's it for 2night. Thanks for everyone coming in here who left comments even if it was to say there are no paragraphs in my first two entries haha. They have a rule where after so many hours you can't edit your posts
Have a great night and see you tomorrow! Cheers!
