Re: 10z to 100z in 6 months [PLO legend tofurocks]

Do you play HU often? I don't think I've ever heard you talk about HU play prior. It's an interesting game and plays so different than 6-max that I have a hard time adjusting.

Can you play 25HU anywhere?

Yes, on the site I play i can get 25HU action at anytime. I assume it is the same on sites that are more populated. I rarely do it as I have problems ranging heads up and I've ran way below EV playing it and the variance is insane. But there is tons of action there if you; want it. I just prefer to play 6-max as that's where i've studied.

If you know of anywhere I could play in the UK a site would be appreciated. Might check out the action.

Re: 10z to 100z in 6 months [PLO legend tofurocks]

I play HU50 on untracked when a big funplayer wants to play ( this is what happened in the last screenshot I posted where I said I was battling a funplayer). I've considered playing some HU on bovada but my roll is kind of small so I don't really want to right now.

Re: 10z to 100z in 6 months [PLO legend tofurocks]

Played bad and ran bad, pretty much ruined my graph for this month. I tanked like 15 buyins in EV in 5k hands, going to try to take a day or 2 off to get rid of accumulated tilt and study. I usually end up playing anyways when I plan to take days off but I am going to try hard to avoid the temptation because I don't think I am playing well anymore.

Re: 10z to 100z in 6 months [PLO legend tofurocks]

Tomorrow I am going to go to Vancouver to stay with some online friends who both play professionally online up to 600pl. I need to get my game whipped into shape and quit some bad habits (under-exercising, eating donuts, smoking some plants). I am going to stay as long as I can and absorb GTO strat + grind a ****load of hands.

I have 2 prop bets going on right now, both are who can win $2500 first on stars (no RB). I risk $200 to win $80 in one bet, and $50 to win $52.50 in the other. Being in a grind house, I will have a good shot win both bets.

Battled the same funplayer again at 50pl around hands 1400-1600, once again he started off getting the best of me but I managed to bink him a couple times and bust him again.
Feels good to have a nice win after the beating I took a few days ago.

Re: 10z to 100z in 6 months [PLO legend tofurocks]

Late update. April graph (mixed sites - I lost about $200 in EV and net on stars, won on untracked)

Lost a ****load on stars so far this month, probably going to have to go back to 10z for a while. I am very confident that I can beat 25z on weekends/ when pool is soft, but my overall results for the year are horrible there so I'm not sure that I am beating it on weekdays/ reggy hours. I have about 1.7k on untracked now so I may withdraw some to take another few bullets at 25z, probably not though since I want to leave myself as much capital as possible to play the juicy 100 and possibly 200 games and I'm still under-rolled for them.

I am still in Vancouver with the midstakes crushers, absorbing lots of strat and grinding/studying pretty hard. My friend has bought me lots of Chinese food which is cool, I had duck for the first time the other day. Here's a picture of me trying to figure out how a red bean pastry is a desert (it's actually really good and kind of tastes like chocolate).



Tl;dr stars is rigged as ****.

    Lost $300 and a piece of my soul to the worst HU player I have ever seen (and I didn't think that anyone could be worse than the guy I was battling before).
    Firing a $100k GT'd NL that I got a free entrance to tomorrow, hopefully I take it down but nothing can bring back the humanity I lost tonight.

    There's a guy on this site who thinks there is a bug where you almost always win if you are the last preflop raiser, so he always min 3bets and folds to 3bets if he doesnt have a good enough hand to 4bet and call a 5bet.

    so you don't have a roll for plo25, but you play 100 hu? :O variance will kill your roll, you could lose money against a legit monkey (furry human ancestor) who's missing a fold button while playing HU.

    Different sites, different rolls. Play 25 on stars, up to 100 on untracked. I'm not playing 100 HU anymore until I get my roll back up on untracked though probably. Variance/RoR too sick.

    My coach says I'm a mental fish and ***** constantly in group chat, so I should play stakes where I'm not going to be mentally affected by the swings. So I guess I'm gonna swallow my pride play 10z on stars and 30pl on untracked until I'm super rolled to stake up.

    Going pretty good, feels bad to playing 10 but gotta swallow my pride, I don't get emotionally affected by the results at this stake so that feels good. Games seem very soft so hopefully be back at 25 soon. Only played like 2 or 3k hands so far so too early to judge my winrate but I'm guessing (and hoping) it's around 5-10bbEV pre rakeback based on pool, we'll see. Maybe I am overconfident.

    Happy for you.i have the same problem as you with the mental side. What do you think about jnandez plo uni? It worth for 999? 40 buy ins for plo25 equaly.

      In GL.

      Any reason why you didn't pot iso and pot 4b? Maybe I'm calculating it wrong but saves the $3 flop AI and fixes your EV

      P.s Any advice for someone starting out learning PLO? Books to read/not read, video training series worth a look etc etc

      Ran it up on untracked so played some 50pl HU against the ultra funplayer guy and lost $700 in like an hour. Worst day ever in terms of both net loss and sheer number of coolers / runbad. Back to playing 30, and maybe 50 when it's juicy. Fml

      Another month of cancer over.
      Already $300/10 buyins below EV today so this month is off to a great start as well. Need to win some money or will have to get a real job, can't pay the bills with EV. Very depressing ****.
