Approaching the tables with a competitive and gladiator mindset towards regs trying to actively put them in bad spots all the time - instead of passively just trying to beat fish alongside the other regs. Also analyzing my 3h leaks have some big ideas abt frequency stuff, not EV loss stuff that I’m implementing. Won 15bi~ today gonna attribute it to these positive changes even tho obvs just variance. One idea is don’t give ppl any chance to beat you in some nodes by simply existing. Force ppl to work for it to exploit U, most ppl won’t even bother

Down 15bi on Global today - small losing on party and playnow.....

Have never been more sure a game isn't clean in my life.

Facing lots of under pot size 3bets by "dozenuts" and "deezinyo"... They play the same way with similar nickname (I had both whale tagged) and annihilated me today. Obviously coincidence, who would cheat and name their accounts the same right?? BUT this is just too ****ing weird. Have been grinding 1/2 zoom lately and never have had sessions like this, have 8bb all-in adj rn. Really ****ing strange to me that I can be winning in these "hard" games, but games with 2 whales 2 fish per table I magically have these days where I am unable to not just delete my account balance.

Really sucks to get totally screwed like this, especially right after feeling like I made some good mindset and game changes.

Literally sending in a report to Global and not gonna bother playing there until the games get cleaned up, gonna deposit to a diff site.

7bbev wr in zoom (running 7bi below, not everyone can run 210 bi above EV :P), can't win on softest non segregated site in the world. At what point am I supposed to start caring about and making decisions based on my results?

If you were cheated then I hope you get refunded. Having said that, with your boy who cried wolf reputation when it comes to cheating (even just a few posts up you were convinced you were getting cheated when multiple users pointed out your overly passive play mixed with short handed games were more likely the reason you were losing) it does feel like you just dumped off a load of buy ins vs players you feel are weaker than you and instead of admitting you played bad or ran bad you've jumped straight to cheating. Surely you must have felt like you were being cheated before dusting off 15 buy ins, so why did you continue to play them?

With facing under pot sized 3bets, yeah it's a little weird but whales are going to take weird lines that don't make sense. Maybe you were spazzing out vs small 3bet so they kept it up. Whales gonna whale.

Finally, if you are completely convinced that you are being cheated on global (or any site) tell your backer that you won't play there. Explain that you won't be able to play your "A game" because you're paranoid and won't be properly focused and it's just going to end up costing you both a bunch of money.

You seem to be doing well in the zoom games, hopefully you can start putting more volume towards those games. GL at the tables and with your backing deal, look forward to reading the next update.

Am still gonna play there bc games are honestly just so good sometimes. Backer has already said I donít have to play on global, and definitely donít have to play on ignition. Only really felt like this after I saw the min / small 3betting from the whales with similar names. Will add stars as well, to increase non global volume.

Just need to leave games if I think something is weird. Have seen other regs do what I assume is the same thing.

Definitely have a reputation for calling for cheating - HOWEVER, I was right about ignition. And, I was right about partypoker when I decided to withdraw (got a cheating refund there). And, I have been calling for cheating on global pre projectbaby. I still suspect a lot of cheating on global, every ls-ms reg I know goes on these massive downswings on the site, and I suspect that ppls winrates are not as high as they think. Because when the games are good and clean and youíre easily winning 20bb+ with two whales per table, yes you have a high winrate. But when you get screwed and sit a bad table, you lose it quickly.

Also, this isnít a case of me calling for cheating whenever I lose. ACR I have been losing, however those games are legit tough! Often 5 leaderboard regs and me tryna get a winrate. (Yea shouldnít play those games but anon lobbies mean I have to join and play an orbit at least)

Ty for the wishes, Iím very confident in my 6m play, and will just make a bunch of money and move up while working on HU and SH a ton.

Another day of getting Royal > top boat for 400bb, straight flush > nut flush for 100 etc zzz. Seriously once I stop this joke of a run I'm going to shoot up stakes so fkn quickly... Looking forward to it!

Really want to add stars soon so I can keep updating graph and have access to more 1/2 games - volume on Party is very low for non zoom at 1/2.

Ended up doing some charity stuff for the first time - had never really thought about it before.

But I think for poker players, it’s important to find ways to give back to society. Given how selfish this line of work is.

Despite how difficult and demanding poker is, it is still parasitism if we are being honest.

Had a 30~bi session lol with absurd 2k pots at 100PL and a good amt at 200s

4+ handed results (not playing HU or 3h)



Also lost wallet on transit. Universe has a sense of humour I think.

Crazy hands









Must have misremembered the last hand, thought it was over 2k but the uncalled bet got returned.

This looks like a mad game, but am I reading it correctly that you are getting 600bb in preflop multiway with KQJJss?

Why not? You are in terrible shape against AA/KK/QQ and hope to have you only suit live, which can also very well be dominated. Pretty sure this is a fold pre with that amount of action this deep.

The guy who squeezed originally was playing 95/90/90 or smt. And either way more fun to just ship it and go to bed.

WellÖ if you make a 90% 3bet preflop sim 600bb deep, I think my hand is gonna be strictly GTO

-15bi session. If it went the other way would have unlocked 2.5/5, but will have to wait a bit unfortunately.

Crushing all the games lately, playing format where I have good winrate (4h+) seems to be working wonders.

Won 15 bi so far today, starting to think that variance calculators are a load of rubbish, my experience with positive and negative swings can't be explained by normal variance calculator inputs imo.

Also LOL at trying to build to HS with 50bi roll + 5bi for shot take next level. Maybe works for some, but I think the variance is just more intense than I thought, and than the calculators suggested. Part of why I got so frustrated is bc the "math" couldn't explain the insane variance I was experiencing.

Have you played around with the variance calculator ? Variance can be brutal . Maybe your inputs are off giving you unrealistic expectations

Yes Iíve used it extensively, but every day swinging 10-20bi doesnít seem exactly standard. 180std dev - 2, 10, 20bb/100. When I jack up the std dev a bit tho the variance just starts to go crazy so meh idk. Just gonna accept 20bi swings as standard instead of a rarity.

Well, if you play in games and get 600bb in with KQJJss multiway then why are you surprised by the swings?
