    you don't need all of these stats
    hands since last vpip/pfr seriously haha
    u just play mtt's not even cash u prob just need vpip/pfr/3bet/cbet/steal/ftsteal
    alot of ppl with this many stats end up spending too much time each hand looking at their hud cuz its to many numbers and forget exactly what each represents.

    So, I'm thinking about making the switch to HUSNG, opinions/strengths/weaknesses of normal speed to turbo.

    Anyone?

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

    ^^
    u want to switch cuz u read a thread about someone who played the 30s and moved up to the 100s for HUSNGs its not ez man just like any gametype it takes alot of time discipline and studying. as long as you work hard its not about the money its about what you enjoy most and can grind with the most inspiration.

    Haha don't worry. I took a shot tonight and got raped. I'm gonna buy tilt breaker and put a lock on cash and anything not MTT.

    Back to te grind soon.

    Sorry for te lag of updates, I've been getting coolered all over the place. Never run so sick in my life. But my tilt control is sweet as I just log out and call it a night/go take a break and come back later.

    A lot better than it used to be!

    lol set mining against a minraise then a min3bet raise is pretty bad.. just saying. When SB cold 4b's flatting is the best option tho so I do commend you on that.

    How is that bad? I'm IP and can probably get a lot more value out of him postflop.

    you want to be HU w/ QQ not multi-way plus you will have a ton of FE pre so that alone is +ev along with the fact that it's for value.

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

    Yo yo yo

    Sorry for the lack of proper updates.

    So basically I've been sleeping/playing like a nocturnal creature, in that I've been starting the grind at 8pm and finishing at 8am, going to bed and waking up at 6pm....grind on the mind right?!

    Last thursday went to crown (local casino) and got cleaned out for roughly $280, played a $100 MTT, then some 1/2, interesting night as I flopped some ****ing huge hands, like a 4-8 Diamond straight flush, quad 2's, and two full houses. And managed to make absolutely ****ing nothing out of any of them. Sigh.

    Anyway, I've decided that playing 1/2 is detrimental to my bank account and sanity. So I'm going to quit the livez and play online, while saving a BR for 2/3, hopefully I can save this in about a year, and by then I'll have some serious ****ing knowledge under my belt to crush the tards at 2/3. I'm aiming for 9k and will be updating as I go.

    So, online, I played 4 events the other night and ended up going deep in a 1300ish player field in a 3.30. Ended up placing 12th for like $34 after making some horrific choices when I was sitting in 2nd with 12 to go. Anyway, I know where the **** I went wrong so it's just a case of live and learn, FT finish would have been nice in that however...

    Anyway, I'm probably not gonna be grinding much over the next few days as I have work and such. So I'll update as to how I go with study and such. HEM is ****ed atm and I don't know why, so I need to get that sorted out ASAP.

    Oh and (small brag), managed to get some fit 22 year olds number at the pub tonight, haha one of the first times in months I've played the horrid pub pokazzz, so that was sweet. Seems keen and can't wait to "challenge me again". So updates shall be given.

    Anyway, I'm out. Have a good one, you loveable degenerates.

    BR = $106 ish
    FPP = 300 ish
    BR savings for 2/3 = $0

    So. I'm gonna work on my live game (reading and study, no playing) over the next year.

    Any reads in particular that I should make a beeline for? Responses here would be delightful.

    So, got the train into the city, met up with my mate, headed into crown. It was his first time there so I wanted him to have a good time. Anyway, we go get drinks first, overpriced drinks at that, and I'm soon feeling seriously intoxicated, before gambling we wanna eat so we head to this Asian restaurant called Sho, great food, we get duck pancakes but we are both too ****ed off our faces to finish the things and the quickly retire to the floor to gamble.

    I don't play table games much at all, as I can't stand not having an edge, and tonight seemed at first to be going ok, within 20 minutes I was up $70 off of $50, on the $1 roulette table (lol Baller as **** obviously ) and riding sweet. Next thing I know. I'm being told by my sober mate (he works in crown so he cant gamble and had just finished his shift) to take the $170 I now have in my pocket and finally go play 2/3, as I have been telling him and myself that I'm gonna play 2/3 soon.In my highly ****ed up state I believe this recommendation is better than anything in the world. And next thing I know I'm being eye****ed by every reg at the table.

    Few mades hands later and I'm sweet, sitting on $300 and 100bb. Ten lady luck decides to throw a curve ball. I'm on the button with 47o (a personal favourite) and being drunk, I'm playing anything I like the look of when I'm IP. I call along with the whole table and we see a flop of 478. I'm allin by the turn HU, turn comes 9, river comes 9 and he shows Q9o. Quickly reassuring me that "he didn't believe me".

    I rapidly depart the table with my friend telling me to calm the **** down because I'm "lethal, on the verge of frenzy". Go back to Lucknow games, tilt off an easy $100 on blackjack and roulette. And then head back to poker, however $100 only allows me to sit down on 1/2.

    Meanwhile, my friend is being offered Ice and blowjobs off a man who my friiend is convinced he is a cop, the man is offering my mate blowjobs off an elderly lady in a corner (pimplol?) for $30, assuring him "you can **** her throat as hard as you want man".
    Which my fried obviously declines.(however he told me that if it was free...)


    Anyway, 1/2 went ok until the board rolled out 5789. I'm allin with A6 on the turn and ask the guy, do you have 106? To which he says "yeah sorry bud", quickly takes a chunk of my stack and I end up leaving the table with like $80 more than I started with.

    Long story short, I finished with hungry jacks and had a relatively cheap night at $250 dollars, so I'm pretty happy.

    Gonna try and get some grind in today once I've eaten and the piss has worn off.
    looool, I like this post especially the bolded part wtf!

    A big part of your goal is improving at poker so this may help you:
