Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Another pretty interesting hand came up. Vs a pretty LAG opponent.. At the time I thought he had JJ and maybe other two 10's, but i'm now thinking he'd 4b them pf?! Obv he doesn't have K as he'd 4b AK and fold KQ pf.... I may ask him on skype what he had here


    On Game, $25/$50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players


    MP: $1,750 (35 bb)
    CO: $3,442.50 (68.9 bb)
    BTN: $5,150 (103 bb)
    Hero (SB): $4,925 (98.5 bb)
    BB: $4,925 (98.5 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
    MP raises to $150, 2 folds, Hero raises to $500, BB calls $450, MP folds

    Flop: ($1,150) K 8 2 (2 players)
    Hero bets $400, BB calls $400

    Turn: ($1,950) 4 (2 players)
    Hero bets $800, BB calls $800

    River: ($3,550) 8 (2 players)
    Hero bets $3,225 and is all-in, BB folds

    How much do you think showing your bluffs plays into your meta game?

    Quite a bit, main reason I show some, not all, is to give me the room to overbet for value with alot higher chance of getting called

        Well, maybe he will answer on skype as i've let him a msg asking if he'll say what he had. Maybe he was double floating me, but that wouldn't be that clever with Kxx flop as its obv he doesn't have K... At the time I was thinking he had JJ/TT but now after thinking about it I think just AQ or something..? So at the time of play, i thought i was bluffing. Thinking about it now, i think it was for value?!

        ty above comments..

        It's so so weird. Whenever i feel like i'm going to lose in a session, i always feel it before i sit down (but always sit down regardless) and then i'm nearly 100% sure i always lose, and its normally like 10-20k$ or something.

        Never have that feeling and win...

        And probably win 80%+ of the times i feel fine before my other sessions...

        So sick

        And not by coincidence. read quite about about this due to my own experiences over millions of hands. Seems the minds ability to recognize up coming events, unfavorable ones more so, with out stimuli, Both individually and collectively has Been covered in scientific studies and shows like Morgan Freemans Through the Wormhole.

        Now if i could just figure out how to use it to my advantage other than sitting out lol.
