Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Grind can you post some interesting hands? Maybe hands where you rivershove and where you call even rivershove and thought processes behind.
Or some hands where you fold because villain takes iniative or does this not happen often as you are agressive player? Thanks.
And graph of course. As you mentioned football do you bet on football matches too besides watching? I ask because i do sometimes.

    What are your thoughts on this spot:
    You have Q6o,you raise from SB and BB(unknown) flats pre.
    The flop comes 689fd.
    What's your action and why?
    Thank's.

    I just fold sb most of the time, esp if they are a stronger than average player , but as played I just check fold or possibly bet fold. If i bet and he calls, i may barrel and turn my hand into bluff . If i bet the turn i'm bombing the river!

    Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

    The 2 7 hand, are there no better hands to balance UTG range?
    And can it be that this just works because the hand was very deepstack?Would think it would work less with 100bb stack because of commitment thing.
    And 689 hand example you would multibarrel because these drawy board invites to that right? I mean the bet is not for value the six i guess lol. It can turn like that as the hand goes further until river with runner runner 66 or Q6 though even its not that likely.
    Do you buy stocks too from poker profit besides betting? Real Madrid Manchester City was fungame but not good match for bet.

    You must play tight, 72s or better.

    Heh yes there are hands that play better post flop than 72o but winning a pot vs someone and showing him 72o will play on his mind alot more than winning and showing a bluff with another hand.

    Yes, if i didn't have 200bb+ I wouldn't have made this play, that was essential.

    Barreling on drawy boards is good because his range will be beat a lot more of the time I think. E.g. If he had 2pr on the flop, he would probably raise, and if he only called, i can probably get him off that if another diamond came by 2 more bets... No it wouldn't be for value betting my hand, my cards are irrelevant, i would be betting because of the range my opponent has and I don't think he'd call 3 streets

    Not bought stocks, although I may want to get into that soon. Was a very good game, I bet on RM

    I definitely like balancing with hands like 72o. Makes you sooo tough to play against.

    Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

    Ah f**k my gf came over and took my laptop for the weekend, so i cannot upload the extra hands. Anyway, it doesn't matter that much, it's probably not even 1k hands to upload. But i definitely won about $15k when i played on the laptop.

    Anyway, graph so far , excluding my $15k or so winnings from laptop that i haven't uploaded yet:

    Spoiler:


    At a peak in the challenge I guess, which is nice.

    I am going out tomorrow drinking with friends all day and night , then probably be too hungover to play on Sunday. Monday i am out getting stuff for my holiday which I go on on Tuesday with my gf (going to Thailand for 3 weeks). I will bring my laptop to play some pokerz whilst she is doing her make up , showering etc, and maybe some whilst by the pool

    I guess I don't really care about revealing my identity anymore... I was formerly known as 'coopah' on these forums, but I wanted a fresh start as people kept bringing up my roulette etc and it was annoying to keep hearing it. I've played roulette once since starting this thread , and i only lost 4 figures. I then emailed the UK manager and he banned my acc from roulette and i've not played since. I don't keep any money in my current account with my banks so i can never play live roulette too. I've not thought about roulette since I had my roulette banned.. but anyway, enough talk about that game!

    But yeah in the opening post of this thread, I lied about my age, I'm not 22, i'm 24 And the whole 'i dont know how to upload hands' talk was actually genuine. I really couldn't work out how to do it, despite knowing previously in my other threads.

    Have a good wkend all, and gl

    He's alive! I was wondering about you being so quiet.

    Did you make that $100k in a month when you had that challenge with your friend?
