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

Hope taking a break from grinding works for ya man, hopefully it helps clear your head of all the negative aspects of the game which have been affecting you lately and you come back a stronger player because of it!

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

What's your biggest win streak vs. Losing streak? I remember I was either on fire or it was suck out city playing these.

I use to grind these @ the 55's but quit out of pure bordom. Plus I tried to move up to the 110's 220's and 345's too fast.

Novelty - gl man! Your doing good!
As for all the bad beats, just think of all the Sklansky bucks your raking in and soon variance will reimberce you. I think if you can get past this block you'll be crushing even more.
For me, I find I tilt less the more over rolled I am for the limit. I know the piont is to move up and improve your play and profit, but psychologically variance hurts me less when it is a smaller fraction of my bm and I can continue longer w/o tilt. Keep it up

Hey guys, I'm back, here is the graph previous to break and you can see the real run bad. Think I'm refreshed, looked over play and feel good that it was just variance. Hope to get some volume in coming days.

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

Hello :-) no I'm not dead, and yes I'm still going, albiet a bit slower


I don't care if I get made fun of if I go -25% ROI I will finish this challenge. On the positive note, I'm still Positive, but the 3% might be sadly accurate after last few swings.

I did fix one giant leak... turns out I'm too stubborn and need to learn to really play tigher OOP, this was costing me a tun...



I fixed it and instantly went back on the upward path... the bumps are still there like this gem...



PokerStars - $6+$0.25|10/20 NL (2 max) - Holdem - 2 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

Hero (SB): 1,720.00

Flop: (360.00, 2 players) 2 8 8
BB bets 320.00, Hero raises to 640.00, BB raises to 1,100.00 and is all-in, Hero calls 460.00

Turn: (2560.00, 2 players) 7

River: (2560.00, 2 players) T

BB shows T T (Full House, Tens full of Eights)
Hero shows A 8 (Three of a Kind, Eights)
BB wins 2,560.00


oh how I love this... btw this was vs a guy who's won at 1130's... and is supernova , maybe sne ..

hope everyone following is doing well.


I'm on other comp I'll try to figure out how to import/merge databases and should be LOL worthy

I use to grind the 55's HU and I'll tell you one thing. It's a grind! There are days that you can't lose and some days it feels like nothing goes right.

Just one quick question:

How often are you 3 betting pf?

The only reason I ask is against certain or I should say most players you should almost randomly 3 bet every 3rd or 4th time.

Good Luck!

wow nepa I've been a bit nitty I guess, I'm probably 3betting 10% of the time if that. I'm going against a lot of people who like to limp and I don't want to punish them for that because I like smaller pots when I'm oop. Is this fundamentally awful? If I verse someone who's like 50/44 then yes I will 3bet because 44 is so huge and they fold to a lot of 3 bets I'll increase, but vs limpers I rarely am even raising and if I do it's to 60-80 from the 20

You want to rarely limp. Raise almost ATC against limpper. I would rather raise to 90 and have someone ship on me when I have nothing. I only lost 90 on the hand instead of my whole stack.

You can't wait around for premium hands playing Heads up expecting to get paid off. Once you get the hang of it you'll be 3 barrling and 4 barrelling.(Sp?) Lol no spell check on my phone.

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

Oh I never limp, but I do check/call when I'm out of position simply because if I don't hit and had like 7/2 off, check then fold I only lose the bb which was in pot anyway. I'm not trying to hit to win, I just don't like attacking people who do limp and give me free looks when in a inferior position. This is wrong and you suggest I should start raising their limps a lot?

I would raise out of postion 50+ percent of the time firing a 2/3 of the pot C-bet on almost any flop. I would say about 63 percent of the time I would be C-betting

Edit: learn to be a super LAG!

lol nepa going to think about it and try it out, it seems it might be good higher, but at the 6.25 there are so many spew, terrible players who play almost 100% of hands and are stations. Ty for advice and feedback though, it's always appreciated.

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

I played the 6's as well. I started by playing 500 and then moved up. @ the 6 level most players are weak tight so you don't have to worry about building a pot and having taken away from you. The Bet and Raise buttons are your friends.

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

no offense but thats some rly bad advice by Nepa, u dont want to 3Bet every 5th hand or whatever, people hate folding at 6s and 11s, also dont jack up the pot if villain limps 100% from the button, hes giving you a FREE flop, the last thing u wanna do is bloat pots OOP vs calling stations and get urself in bad spots, Im not saying dont be aggro, cuz aggresion is key, its jus unnessasary preflop with mediocre hands, this game is played post flop not pre!

Dont let running bad affect you at all, its hard not to tilt, ill admit I go crazy sometimes too, but its rly hard to control it, my advice would be to take a break as soon as u notice that youre not playing ur best, even if its at the beggining of a session, take atleast 15 mins or more if needed to get ur mind off poker for the moment.

Yeah I agree magic, it's cool to see different styles I think that I'd be a bit uncomfortable trying to be LAG vs all these calling stations, I like free flops oop too much

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

Need to figure it out on how to fix PT3... I need to just upgrade to HEM but I'm so stubborn.

I had a good day the other day, feel back in groove, not throwing money away getting it all in good 9/10 times ect. Had a great win streak of like 11 going also.

New site I'm trying out is ok, PT3 doesn't detect win /loss so I have to enter by hand which is beyond a pain in the ass...

Around 400: I'm at 5.8% ROI

Again back on track feeling good, have a nice 600 bonus to grind off in match + 33-38% RB depending how much I play.

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

Ok I admit it... I went back to omaha for a little bit but I'm now back to these and doing ok.

I've moved up stakes and have been running well. I'm also on a trial of HEM on this comp so I'll have a graph soon, and still need to figure out how to merge both.


My ROI % is now 7.6 through 500 games.

Honestly I feel a bit better at higher stakes because 1. I concentrate more, hard to really try when the entire match is a small blind for me in PLO, and 2. I understand what the other guy is trying to do mostly.

will try to get a pic of graph updated.
