Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Hey guys, this will be new thread

In need of motivation and stop being lazy sob i started this blog to keep up with my progres in 180's I am staked at the moment by Chavarov and Gavin555.

Lots of awsome coaches and i started working closley with Frenzuh and and all i can say he is one great coach i learned a lot in just 2 sessions with him

Anyway enough of free advertising lets talk about my goals.

Ok i started in 2.50's and had many ups and downs there but after many hours of hard work i am finally satisfied with my play.
And as all of you i want to move from there on to bigger buy ins

Goals:
1.Play at least 2.500 games a month
2.Review 2 HHs per day , and at the end of the week do a extensive review of my games for that week
3.Move up to 3.50 rebuys, 15's and 35's by April of 2012 (long shot )
4.Update my blog after every session and make in detiails graph and stats for all my stakes that week.


Here are some graphs

2.50 180's all my games till now ( so funny graph )



8$ 180's all my games at this level



And this is my graph of last 1000 games this is where i started working with frenzuh



Ok thats more or less my goals i will start today and i will be making also goals for every week so it would be more interesting and for every missed goal at the end of the week i will have to donate 20$ to charity that you guys pick.

And i want to thank all of the guys that posted in thread before hope you will pop in here also.

Gogogogogogogo

Re: Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Day 1.

This was very nice day to start this thread played 95 games total and made nice little chunk of change



Games : 95
Profit :
358,00$

The awesome thing is i made 10 Final tables but i ran so bad at them it is just meh, but im not complaining cos i played good and ended finishing 1st in 8$ and in 2.50$ 2nd + 2 3rds which obviously sucked oh well.

3.50 re buy im coming hehe

Lets hope tomorrow will be the same maybe even better

Re: Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Dono why you don't play the $3.50r already. With an abi of ~$11 it is higher than the $8s but they are much softer. Or so I hear from many crushing players. You can get a roi of like 40% in them.

PM me your skype maybe we can get some strat talk going

Can't help but think your backers are burning money by not letting you play the $3.50r. But oh well. Guess its not your prob!

Re: Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Day 2.

Ok i dont have word to describe this day lol it first started by bubbling on FT of Big 16.5$ 10K gtd which made me 150$ , i cant be to upset that i didnt make it to FT cos i rly had luck even getting that far when i could bust way earlier.

After that i started my session on 180's which was epic lol and i mean EPIC, well for player that plays 2's and 8's it is. I played 81 games and managed to get to FT 8 times and from those 8 times i WON 5 times i had 2 x 8$ and 3 x 2.50$. Which made me lol 995$ in profits needless to say this is my biggest winning day ever in 180's.

And only thing im not fully satisfied is my volume, my game is rly on the level plus rungood always helps

Ok here is the graph




Games : 81
Profit :
995

Lets keep crushing. And i almost forgot from today im moved up to play 3.50 rebuys hehe so from now on you will be seing me guys at 2's,8's and 3's

Not saying that he isn't winning. Just that afaik the $3.50r are softer than the $8 so it would be more +ev to play them (as well).
Was merely an observation and m1ghty seems to be doing very well.

Meh this is all pointless. Playing the $3.50r anyway now GO M1ightyducks

Re: Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Day 3.

Today there is nothing to brag about i was so tilted cos my pokerstars was lagging for some reason and i missed few important spots oh well me.
Other news is today i played my first session that included 3's and that was so sick my impression is they are like 2's only difference is you have deeper stacks lol i swear today was shove fest haha and i like it, all i need is to adjust.
As for results i had 7 FT's i think but couldnt get anything going on them few players was spite calling me so meh.
Im happy with my volume tho 102 games every day more and more games, and im 22 vpps away from goldstar which is always nice.

Here is graph for today but only problem is it didnt count my rebuys and addons so i lost more than it says



Games : 102
Profit :
- 217$

Which isnt that bad in 102 games i had my fair share of luck last few weeks so it is time to get back in reality hehe it was fun while it lasted.

And here is funny hand from today which i refered earlier about ppl spite calling me lol

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 2.5 Tournament, 3000/6000 Blinds 600 Ante (3 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

Hero (Button) (t127916)
SB (t31254)
BB (t110830)

Hero's M: 11.84

Preflop: Hero is Button with 10, A
Hero bets t127316 (All-In), 1 fold, BB calls t104230 (All-In)

Flop: (t225260) 2, 9, J (2 players, 2 all-in)

Turn: (t225260) 2 (2 players, 2 all-in)

River: (t225260) 10 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Total pot: t225260


well tbh i wanted him to do that but damn i lost

Re: Starting from the bottom of 180's to the top

Day 4. and 5.

Ok at the start of this update i would like to first thank some ppl first of i would like to thank Chavarov and Gavin555 for giving me this great opportunity to play these awsome and sometimes tilting games when i applied i was new player and tbh i didnt think they would take me so thx guys for this awsome experience and all your help i will never forget that.
Now i would like to thank especially one person who i pissed of many times but he managed me and sometimes yell ( ohhhhhh yes he did) at me but that was all part of my improving processes ok his name is Dean Bogan aka Bogan4life, he was there for me when i had problems with my first big downswings and put a lot of time working with me everything i learned he was the one teaching

All in all thank you all 3 of you guys for making me decent player and i am proud to call you my friends

Ok enough of mushy stuff

Last two days were little hectic as most of you dont know i have wife and 2 baby girls which are my soul motivation for being betterr at this game and i want to provide them all i can.
Plus i work full time job which is taking its toll on me and playing ( tired) haha but I wouldnt change anything in my life well maybe if i could win sunday million haha.

After i covered all this lets move on to poker related stuff.
This week went like a dream i played my A game all the time except yesterday. I find it rly hard time adjusting playing 3.50 rebuys with my 2's and 8's freezouts the game is softer than 8's but i need to adjust my calling ranges and shoving ranges a lot. My first impression on 3's was lol this is like playing 2's but with deep stacks. So it will be just matter of days when i will adjust to these changes and hopefully start crushing these.

First of i will put in graph for yesterday and today



im having problem with graphs when i play rebuys , so they are little off

Games : 145
Profit :
305$

And here is summary for every stake separately
First off we will start with 2.50's



Then 8's which i have little shark icon now on sharkscoope haha sick brag lol



And last one 3.50's + r



And graph for total this week



Ok lets hope this continues into this new week gogogogo Good luck every1 at the tables and remember dont shove on me wide
