Took a shot at 25NL as my BR allowed it. started out alright but then took the worst redline beating of my life - just got 3bet on the bottom of my opening range all the time, 4bet on the bottom of 3bet range, all draws missing etc.

NL25 shot taking results:



Redline beating continued at NL10 but managed to steer it around



Currently taking a break from A Game Poker, but have been reading a lot of Modern Poker Theory - to continue with A Game Poker I need to actually create a schedule, which I definitely will but I'm likely not finishing every book task until end of the month.

Tough, donít get too caught up in one snap shot of sample. Keep playing and good things will happen too!

Thanks mate, I find it always more difficult to deal with bad redline than blue line. If you get set over set, so be it, but redline always leaves me wondering if I'm becoming a nit..

End of the day, Green line rules them all. If it's bothering you to see redline going down, turn if off. I just leave on my EV and green lines now until I look at end of month. It really helps me

I kinda like it as an indicator whether I'm aggressive enough or not but I totally get your approach too. Might try it!

48 NL25, mostly from that brutal red line session where it was at ~30 for most of the session

So 48-52?

Good, don't sweat your redline then.

Trying to, probably just a mental game leak that I'm insecure about folding too much.

Did very good in January and February, crushing 10NL for 7BB for 50k hands or so.

Then march came and destroyed me.


Effectively down half my BR since I was shot taking 25NL before the downswing. I'm currently taking a break from playing, instead I'm studying and playing GTOWizard exclusively.

I'm starting today with a new study method:

1. Group a flop spot by strategic similarity (i.e. K [BW card] [<T] UTG vs BB SRP)
2. Aggregate data for all flops, then reduce to largest GTOW subset
3. Open ~10 representative flops of the subset, solve with AI for 1 betsize
4. Plug in the bet size from step 2 and check if we loose EV by simplifying to that bet size on all flops
5. Write down strat to spread sheet
6. Create Trainer with that flop texture and only the flop bet sizing and practice it
7. Play through that texture in range builder


Also back to reading A Game Poker and hopefully implementing a real schedule.


Goal for April:

- Write down all spots for BTN vs BB SRP
- Write down all spots for UTG vs BB SRP
- Implement schedule
- Train 100 Hands for each spot
- Play through at least 1 Rangebuilder for each spot

Have done my spreadsheet for most spots. I have in SRP: UTG vs BB, BTN vs BB, SB vs BB. As HJ I play UTG strat and as CO I play BTN strat. I also have BTN vs SB 3bet. Looking to create EP vs MP 3bet and BB vs x 3bet pot next.

I have strategy for different turns etc... Just not practicing enough against the trainer, mostly due to the devastation of losing 3/4 of my BR.
I'm quitting weed for good so hopefully this will help me set up a proper schedule and work on my tilt levels.

Good luck on your progress, I'm also currently at 10nl. Took a shot at 25nl yesterday, was hoping to boost the bankroll but took a 3.5 buy in loss instead. Obviously that's hardly anything but it's still a big part of my current roll so I'm back at 10nl for now. I played fine, just ran into some negative variance. Lost a big hand Vs a whale in a 3 bet pot who has 97o and turned a straight, then another whale jamming 33 into my QQ for 60 bucks and spiking a 3 on the fop. I guess this is why you need a lot of buy ins, it could easily have gone the other way.
Anyway I'll be grinding 10nl a little longer it seems.
Which site are you playing on BTW? I'm on stars. My username is Spac3m0nkey, perhaps I'll see you at the tables if you play there. GL

Hey there!

I noticed you're putting in a lot of hard work on your game, and it seems you have a solid strategy for improvement. That's great!

However, focusing solely on theory without practice, or vice versa, isn't the most efficient approach. The key is to combine them.

While playing, take note of interesting hands. Then, after reviewing them, you'll gain a deeper understanding and better recall.

It's true that bad beats can be demotivating, making it tough to keep playing. But trust me, even a little playtime can make a big difference.
