Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

wow thanks so much guys. Really helps to know people behind me. :-).

MkMcdonald24 - I failed so hard playing hu sng and cash online, till now to be honest. I guess I just lacked focus, and I thought I got it because I read so much, but I realized I was way too spewy, I was a actually a maniac who thought he was playing lag.

I watched a free video of someone playing and learned it was ok to lay down top pair sometimes. I think when I saw that, + when I really saw how awful some of my mistakes were I started to do better. Also PrimordialAA who I never heard of till his challenge inspired me.

Might sound really really bad saying this, but I want to be the best in the world. So my goals start realistic but the big picture is a big dream :-).

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

lol activated a bit of bad luck by saying that but still doing well, I think the thing I really need to learn, watch a lesson on is endgame in these. I'm making mistakes I feel. Like blinds 25/50 guy is around 700 and I get q/10 suited. If I make standard raise and he shoves... is it a snap call? I mean depends on player, but if I limp and get raised I feel ok as I'd have raised anyway and he might see limp as weakness and shove regardless of flop so 33% of time when I hit I feel solid playing, but yeah... I get a bit confused towards end. Obviously I'm raising, calling shoves with 88+ and at worst hoping for a flip.

I know it sounds odd, but I can't tell if I'm being too impatient at end game, or too pussy... haha :-\ probably should figure that out.

Played about 10 but saved a pup from a rescue not long ago who's taking up a ton of my time. hope to get near 125 and will post graph/results then.

Thanks again to everyone who replied, means a lot.

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

So I hit 125 and I'll be honest with you it was a bit of a grind to go from 100 to 125 for me today. Got interrupted with some bad news went out and actually had some time this evening so I pushed through all 125.

I'm finding the mental toll to be harder than figuring out the player now, as I twice turned flushes k high and had person call shoves, only to hold the a, and catch 4 to a flush on river, so 25% shot worked twice in two.

The other thing that really hadn't happened to me yet, was running so absolutely cold... I mean cold cold cold you can't get a card higher than 8 and if you get a 9 guaranteed it's with a 3/2. Suited? no, not for you. connected? nope no 5/6 nothing. This isn't a problem when you're vs a semi normal person, but I was up against a maniac, and yeah was painful, I tried to see a few cheap flops but with 5x bb raises every button, was tough, I was able to steal some of his action shoving over his 3 bets, but even with super agg it's a catch 22. Eventually I got so low to stack I shoved with 9/x and he turns a/9 and domination catch up isn't a game I'm good at , or want to pick up.


Posting graph and results next

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

Oh one other cool thing to note, I looked up one of my opponents I beat because I thought "that guy was tough, he didn't give me anything" and sure enough the guy's +22k this year... No clue why he was down there, hell maybe I just beat his girlfriend, or he's drunk or whatever. I still felt he was playing good and it made me focus a ton more. I don't think I'm good enough to two table these constantly, but I've had two tables going a few times. I seem to run somewhat better, but looking back it was mostly the cards.

Last cool thing to note... Played a tight aggressive player who was capable of both bluffing flop and river... I beat him first game he wanted rematch, I felt he was a little mad, and fourth or so hand he calls my raise with j/5 Flop was k/k/a He fires i call, turn q, check check, river 8, he shoves. Call with j high and win.... watch him go postal in chat box after, pretending I already left.

I called because someone with his tag style would never not 3 bet with a strong k/a holding, and would never check turn after firing bet on flop. He'd always keep value betting. I thought the Q was possible, but holding q/x wasn't as big of a threat. He'd have showdown value and prob not bet flop as hard... and when 8 hits if he held either q or 8 he'd have sd value so only way he's getting pot is bluff, which I just knew he had to hold. If he showed me anything I'd have really been amazed. So it wasn't something I'd like doing, but it really was all there if you listened to how he told you his hand history.

cheers and take care.

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

Today was almost too much to handle. Sucked out on 24/7, so much **** talking done by others, just sick how long some people live on 20% or less when money goes in.

I guess I can say "i'm still up for the day" But it feels like a giant loss, and I ended on a 4 game slide including one awesome call that was so ridiculous he needed runner runner to get a straight vs my trips and yeah hit it, he then told me he called "because I doubted you had the A" ok... and he'd win how? even if I didn't... sooo bad

93-57 19.04 ROI%
Net won : 178.50

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

I honestly lost at least 4 games today because of self not being the same player... Yes rough variance today but 4 of those I feel I'd never lose if I just stayed focused... oh well. 1850 more to go...

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

I couldn't sleep having thrown it away like I did, I was so on tilt but not the tilt of spew, the tilt of extreme focus. I had such a massive rage looking over a few of the mistakes I made, I could cry about having someone call all in with 2/5 and hit a a-5 straight vs my k's but that doesn't excuse the really bad calls I made, esp for their player type. Super nit 3 bets me, then check raises flop? Your top pair is beat , give it up...

Anyway this probably won't mean anything to anyone but I played very good poker and lost the first, then won 7 in a row. The first was a total suckout as well but I didn't let it bother me the same way.


Also of note broke the 200 mark :-). Might dip below but feel good about it.

Very sick man, I just started getting some volume in at HU sngs, hopefully I can match your results =P. Check out the shootouts on FTP if you are looking to change it up slightly, they are pretty fun.

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

NOTE TO SELF DO NOT TWO TABLE, YOU ARE NOT THAT PRO YET. STICK WITH ONE TILL YOU LEARN GAME

Hi friends, today I played 27 or so games in stressful conditions. For some reason I wanted to make volume so I decided to two table... I made mistakes. Probably lots. I put my games in poker luck meter.com and it told me "lol sucks to be you" and yeah, I did however get insulted so well by someone when my AA held vs his 10's preflop that I had a laugh.

Anyway I think I'm up 2.25 today with all those games (at least some vpp to clear 50 bonus) but yeah, I'm never doing that till I'm more solid, a ROI of 2.25 isn't that great =\

Total games 178

110-68 ROI: 18.65% Total Profit : 207.50




Last 3 games I one tabled to get back to over... sorta nice to feel that confident playing one table. I think it might be egotistical but vs almost everyone I feel very strong, like in my head I'm thinking "just play game, give up little pots after stabs if they play back... make them suck out on you"

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

It's so annoying to have two overs when they get so low, and they run 300 to 600, then you have them dominated a/k vs k/3 and they hit trip 3's now up to 1200, and they get dealt like qq two out of three times as blinds are 75/150 (true story) and you lose. Oh well that stuff happens. I think I'd actually have a better win rate at normals, but the rake advantage and speed of games is fine for me at these 6.25's. Hopefully I get some peace and time to play just 1 table a lot soon.

take care

3 buy-in downswings make you depressed?

for someone who is weak in husngs (your words) you are getting good results and should not be complaining in my opinion.

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

To put this in perspective, I've lost the last 6 in a row literally where I've had someone dominated... a/k vs like a/4 Any flip pair vs two overs, i've lost LITERALLY 33 / 35

gg. I basically have grinded people down but when it's all in I'm getting raped. I'm basically running as bad as anyone in the world could....

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

anyway I've moved up to 11.50's because I'm rolled at the min for those... When I start just running a little bad, I will be destroying them so hard.

I've not put my money in a bad spot except for maybe 3 out of last 50 games I can honestly say. It would be very easy to be -50 roi with this luck but whatever... I'm determined to rest, and then crush the living **** out of these.

Graph of doom.

lol I got 37.9 over my last 500ish games. bottom 2% luck like yours. this actually makes me confident knowing I can win pretty easily when I'm having 98% worse luck than I should. I think that's what it means at least. worse day during this sample I lost I think 24 buy-ins and grinded it back in a 16 hour marathon session.

Re: 3% ROI in 2,000 or more HUsng's... my weakest game.

lol royce thing is... my actualy % is 2.... if I had 37.9 I would have won so much more... lol it's really that bad. I mean I'm laughing but on avg, I grind someone down, and they win 4-6 flips vs me before I finally win. It's pathetic. I'm pushing with good hands as well so it's not like I'm being too nitty and not trying to get it in with good hands... blah

10% done on challenge. will be interesting to see how it ends up. At least I've already cleared one 50$ bonus, and have another one + the milestone thing coming up.
