Re: 2013 Supernova and move up from NL25

Hi nice thread!

Keep it up!

Was your redline always like that or what did you change in your game??

oh no, i've always had a high losing redline until i reduced the number of tables and started to really improve my game in both areas pre- and postflop.
I just found out that quality >>> quantity (at least for me )

It's a shame it took me so long to realize this.

Ahh alright I guess it's just the way PokerTracker shows it it's weird, because it has a (EUR) in the parentheses and then $ as the sign, got me a bit confused, makes sense now

30k hand B/E stretch at 25nl to 200nl shots in 2.5 months! Very well done mate, great work and has inspired me to stop being so lazy and grind some more hands!

      His value range ain't too wide, i'd discount JJ as a 3b pre and i block AJ/KJ so decided to bluffcatch here.

          Fair play to you great thread! I am the same regarding volume, I am focusing more on quality now but still losing with my redline. What work most helped you improve your postflop game?

            Re: 2013 Supernova and move up from NL25

            Played 8 hours live yesterday which was a nice experience again. i ended up + 125€ after all expenses.


            Villain UTG(~200) is a 40yo fish in the following hand. limps mega wide pre and i saw him call down with 2nd pair n stuff. i'd say he is like 40/10 BB(~450) is even worse. Hero(~350). game is 1/3.

            Hero is SB with AQ

            preflop:
            UTG raises to 11, folds to hero who calls 11, BB calls 11

            flop:
            Q 9 3
            hero checks, BB checks, UTG bets 20, hero raises to 65, BB folds, UTG calls

            turn:
            8
            hero bets 150, UTG calls 150 and is all-in

            river:
            T

            UTG shows QTo and i muck.

            It was the same player who complained about me not tipping enough what tilted me more than anything else.
            i mean they take 5% rake 20€ max. what is really much imo and i obv did tip my bigger pots.
            i even gave an extra tip to a dealer who saved me from showing my cards when villain was the one who had to show first. he was friendly and solid in every aspect a dealer has to be good at. told him he made a good job and gave him some extra money! so what?!?


            i was down about 200€ at one point until i finally get in a hand with a megadrunk fish who keeps telling the table that i am raising every hand

            hero(~320), drunk(~300)

            hero is BTN with K J

            preflop:
            drunk UTG limps, 2limps, hero raises to 18, drunk calls 18, 2 folds

            flop:
            J 2 5
            drunk checks, hero bets 33, drunk overshoves, hero snapcalls

            turn:
            K

            river:
            9

            Villain shows J8o and can't believe it...
            reloads 100€, blows it away the next hand, wants to reload more but unfortunatly is here with some friends who won't let him play any longer

            let's go for a good sunday online now!
