Re: Zero to Hero. My quest to become a solid person/player.

I dont play 6max anymore so maybe someone with experience in current games can chime in.

Looks like you could easily up your 3bet a little, but I could be wrong. Also small sample size. vpip and pft look fine, altho back when I was playing my PFR was more like 20 and VPIP about 26.

Either way, playing less tables is the first thing I can recommend by far.

Yeah My leakbuster app says for 6m my 3bet is at a good level. I do need to start restealing from the blinds however, so that's something I really do need to work on.

Thank you for the gl, you too!

When you say calling too much pre, would my cold calling be ok if my PFR was higher? Or is it just too high overall?

And hopefully man!

Re: Zero to Hero. My quest to become a solid person/player.

Oh, I've also found a coach that's gonna help me out with my game, he used to be a 50nl crusher so it will be great to have someone with some decent knowledge of beating the cheezeburga steaks helping me out.

Great rate as well.

I didn't need to look at your coldcalling stat to know that your calling too much pre. I can tell from your VPIP/PFR gap. It's nothing crazy and it is only nl2 so it might be okay.

Normal life:

Love your thread & your life stories. You need to do more updates. And include more details in the updates.

Pics of you and the girls brah.

And maybe you should switch back to 90/180 SNG/MTTs?

Cheers man, yeah I'll start updating a bit more and in depth.

And no no, not switching back until I have a grip on this demon they call cash. Tired of switching up when it gets tough.

And pics of the girls is hard as I don't use Facebook.

Re: Zero to Hero. My quest to become a solid person/player.

So I live at uni in a unit with 11 other people, we each have our own rooms but share utilities like the kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 2 sitting areas.

Anyway, I went upto one of the girls who I regularly ask how I look before seeing a girl/going out. As I'm walking off she asks, "Which girl is this thing with?"

Felt slightly baller.

Will post the HH when I get back from hanging with this girl today, but, nothing makes me happier than sucking out for a 400bb pot with an OESD which was actually the worst OESD out of us three. And trips.

Maybe my luck is changing.

I also have a big bus ride ahead of me so I figured I'd spend the time to update as far as some of my goals.

So here goes:

•I want to have two coaching sessions a week, as to ensure that I am constantly progressing with my game.

•I'm aiming to be 16+ tabling by

•Due to my want to be mass tabling. I will be keeping a strict BRM plan of 100BIs for each level. I don't want to ever have to redepo after the holidays and I believe the only way this is attainable long term is by constantly keeping 100BI. I think that people who are cool with only 20-30BI at the micros then think it will be easy to grind 100BI when they hit 200nl+ are ****ing delusional.

My BRM will be as follows, when I have 100BI for the next level, I will take a 10BI shot, if I feel out of my depth or get crushed, I can easily go back and regrind.

I will move down in the event I have 100BI for the next level. Example: I am playing 10nl with 100BI and drop to 50BI, this would mean I have 100BI for 5nl and I'll move down.

Of course, if I feel like I'm just wasting money. I'll move down as I/or my coach thinks fit.

•I'm aiming for crushing 25nl by next march. I don't think this is unrealistic at all, with some dedication and serious perseverance I know I can do it.

this seems like a good and very realistic goal, im sure it is inevitable now with your approach the the games.

goodluck and no more deposits! we should make a prop bet since we both are no longer depositing. whoever deposits first loses X amount of dollars, what do ya think? (not that we are going to lose)

I can do that during holidays mate? I'm depositing $200 for 2nl.

I'm cool with laying down a bet on it, what are you cool with?

Re: Zero to Hero. My quest to become a solid person/player.

Well then, today, wow.

Was that an interesting day.

So, I woke up at like 7am. Posted that first post, then started drinking again, I was already drunk, so more drinks just re initiated my drunkness and off I went into lala land.

Anyway, after numerous drinks, we worked out that the bus to "Recovery" (drinking session at a pub where everyone gets more ****ed than they originally were, hence it's ironic name) was at 11:30am. We slept for an hour, and then got cleaned up and headed out to The Southern Station, where the event was being held. We got food, as we hadn't eaten in a good 10+ hrs and then walked straight into the madness.

At first, it seemed pretty lame, 2 staff on a massive bar serving $5 UDLs, $4 Vodka Raspberries, and $3 pots (glasses of tapped drinks, beer, cider etc.). We waited in the queue for about 35 minutes before ****ing off to a local pub to get massacred, we dropped more than healthy amounts of alcohol before coming back to SS. Got into there and the line had thinned out, everyone was covered head to toe in premixed drinks and was severely hammered.

We then found out, that a tradition of Recovery was to absolutely destroy every other blokes undies apart. IE, wedgie him til they broke. I was told by a second year that I'd be safe if I simply tore the elastic top off of my undies, which I promptly tore off in a bathroom cubicle.

I was dropping $5 UDLs like no tomorrow and having a rad time until one of my mates dropped that I still had my undies on, minus the elastic, to one of the second year tyrants.

1 minutes later and numerous friction cuts and burns on my balls and knob, I was now freeballing.

It was ****ing excruciating, I was pulled up by my undies by 8 dudes and they pulled in every ****ing direction on a compass until the majority of my foreskin had departed the end of my penis.

Thank god I was drunk, or **** could have been a lot more painful.

I then proceeded to find numerous cuts on my privates, and get extremely drunk, I was covered, and covered numerous mates, in premixed drink until everyone was absolutely doused in sticky coloured alcopop.

Sick day.
