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

First coaching session went well last night, sweated me and then just talked over hands where I could cbet and where I shouldn't. I'mfinding a lot of situations today where I'm using the info from last night.

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

Quick update on both aspects of this dealio.

Poker:


Recently got in touch with a stable who offer staking and coaching for micro stakers and have a huge success rate with their horses, I actually got a reply! They have asked for my Graphs and stats to review and will be getting back to me tomorrow! Fingers crossed

Tonight I had a Mid Stakes MTT pro go through a certain situation that I'm having huge issues with and is massively affecting my blueline in a negative way, basically we went through my DB and filtered hands down to bet/called the river, was great having him walk me through the hands and really go into detail about every street. That was for about an hour and we went through 5 hands. SO it was very much in depth.

Life:

Got a female coming over tonight, massive tease, so this should be interesting, been getting kind of rolled by guys recently, so I offered her a cute night of movies and such, she is going out tomorrow night, so I'm thinking pregame warmup might help me get something home, Uni also finishes tomorrow. So it will be a massive night.

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

Update on the girl from last night, so, she came over, was giving off all the hints that she wanted to do a bit more than watch movies.

I lean in, she rejects me.

Pretty much tells me she already has 3 guys on the go, but if anything ****s up with them, I'm "next in queue". Actually kind of annoyed me, completely sidelined. Ehh.

Turns out one of the dudes ****ed her off last night, so tonights bang may be setup.

GLGL to me.

Haha this was a sick situation last night. I played it perfectly.

So, she texts me as I get into the place asking where I am. I go upstairs and she finds me, we're chatting away, NEK MINNUT, this dbag is joining in and it turns out its one of (the main one) these blokes that she chose over me. I'm pissed off that he is practically stalking me and say I'll see her later.

Cue like 25 minutes on, she is downstairs by herself, I see her, we start dancing/talking. Boom. There this **** is again. Except this time he just ****ing stands like 5metres away and stalks me like a ****ing pride lion. She sees him and tells me he is being a dick and she wants me (nutZ) we walk somewhere else, and I think he leaves. Anyway, she introduces me to her mates and goes to the toilet, but her mates ditch me so I'm like **** standing in a club by myself and go hang with "da boiz".

Find her later and she says she wants to sit down, I lean in to kiss her.

She ****ing pulls away. My mate (who ****ed her, and had the exact same bull**** pulled on him, just looks at me and shouts to **** her off).

She goes, "what? You're gonna leave me because of a hook up?"

Me: "you did this all on your own"

Stand up and walk off. Mate loses his ****, pisses himself and she is left sitting alone.

I then went on, too take a cute second year nurse home, hook up with some chick (that I got a number of) that has a second year boyfriend, and some other slut from Melbounre.

Sick night. ****ing mental night.

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

Oh, the situation with the second year boyfriend, was hilarious.

I'm sitting in my mates unit, and she comes up in this tight leather Xena costume, (club theme night, was bronze age) instantly set a mark on her, she starts chatting to me.

We head over to a different unit and I'm sitting on the stairs with her, we're just chatting with people, my hand is on her arse, everyone turns away and boom, I'm instantly hooking up with her, I lead her upstairs and we hook up for a while, turns out there is actually a window behind us and all out mates could see hahaha.

Anyway, we end up in the shower, I'm finger banging her and getting a handjob, we finish up and like 10 minutes later she says she is headed too her boyfriends.

G ****ing G.

So, I'm now home for the holidays, I've been home all of 3 hours and I'm already asking myself how I'm gonna get through two weeks of this ****.

Can't poker.

No money.

No mates.

No freedom.

And, no work.

Wat.

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

So, updatezzzzz.

Been reviewing hands from my DB, working out different lines and why the lines I'm taking need to be changed, and why they are losing me money.

Doing a lot of calling OTR and I'm calling like a ****** in the blinds against raises.

Worked out I'm not 3betting nearly enough, in the sense that I should be 3 betting or folding.

Massive lack of updates ITT.
Sorry for that, Internet has been sketchy at best.

Anyway, our clubbing and I'm in the lookout for this girl ATM so I figured id update to pass the time.

Poker:

So, I got accepted into the stable on a short term thing, which basically means I'll play with my owns funds while they coach me. I'm actually quite happy with this, it gives me some vital knowledge while not wasting their money/time. Plus I'm essentially getting tee coaching whether they hire me or not.

Life:

Life is pretty good, work is horrendously slow, I'm not making anything, but that should change this week.

Started working out. I'm feeling better with myself and I've found. Solid workout plan got my summer holidays, basically I want to be in top shape for when the first years get here next year...

I'm going well with the ladies, think I've found myself a gorgeous little **** buddy got when I'm at home, so that's great. Really active and always keen. So I'm more than happy.

Will update bigger later.

Have a good night/time boys and girls.

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

Yoyoyo.

And with that, I'm back.

I won't apologise for the delay, as I'm fairly sure no one missed me.

Anyway, things have been pretty hectic. I haven't been playing much poker online, as I've been feeling super unmotivated/demoralised towards it. I want/need to improve, but yeah. I dunno.

I've played a decent amount live and had some sweet scores. Pretty happy with my live play. But I'm probably heating.

Life is going good, finally ****ed my tenth woman, so I'm going well in that field, feeling very confident.

Uni is going terrible, I'm doing terribly.

I will be switching back to MTTs very soon. Look out for some big scores. I'm gonna put some serious work in during my summer.

Ahh good good man

What stakes you on for HUSNG? Are you just gonna switch back into cash at a higher level when you have the BR?

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

So, I have worked out my plan of attack for my ensuing crushing of SSMTTs.

As of Mid November, all my exams will be finished, leaving me time to do nothing but grind and work. Brilliant. I'm gonna be working practically full time upto Christmas, which is great for me, as it allows me to make some serious cash.

Anyway, the plan, is to deposit 200-250 a week into Pokerstars, until I have a 1k roll online, with which I will use to plan the Stars MTTs upto the $11s. I think with a proper grind scheduele and some serious work, I can be at MS by middle of 2013. I'm currently receiving a tonne of help from two full time SS/MS players who are really helpful and accomodating, they answer my questions and give their thought process and generally allow me to sweat them and ask them about any aspects of their game.

I've been reading ElkYs book, "The Raiser's edge" and it really has helped me get a bit more of a grip on toning down my never ending aggression in places it shouldn't be. And ramping it up in places it should be.

3.5 hypers, going to move up to 7s after exams. ye the plan is to go back to plo when im rolled for 100/200 but im most likely going to focus on HU play.
