    I was thinking of the squeeze here, but I've recently been thinking about further action. And figured that any 4 bet/shove here from the aggressor and I would have to fold. I was flatting with the intention of set mining and re evaluating flop.

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

    Just finished a 8 hour session, pretty crushed. A lot of tilting beats.

    Anyway, I cash once today. And it was a min cash.

    BR at $119.85

    Will grind tomorrow night, but if I have work the following day it won't be a big session.

    GL to everyone else tonight.

    Edit: Added $10 because I ****ing accidentally purchased a $10 bonus for 1000fpp which I was saving. I'm too tired for this ****.

    well they still have a flatting range and I don't think flatting is bad by any means but this in particular spot I would choose the more aggressive one.

    Night off due to having no Internet.

    Probably better off having a break anyway.

    Setting up a new HUD config and going over a few hands instead.

    Will be back on the grind tomorrow.
