Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

thanks for the advice guys, gonna take that into account
So this is how I ended march


Didn't expect that I'd be a losing player on 25z but it is what it is. Didn't play my A-game all along the way but who does play his A-game consistently for 87k hands right? So no reason to be bothered by now. But lets forget about the results from last month and try to evaluate what my mistakes were and where I can improve on.

I definitely didn't do enough for life balance. I said that I would go to the gym regularly and didn't find the motivation even once to go there. My nutrition was ****, sleeping schedule pretty much non existent and played 3-4 table too often even though I knew that I playing 3-4 tables significantly hurts my winrate and I miss out on a lot of spots. Also I need to work on some kind of routine to prepare my mind for playing…. maybe that would be good

I also didn't go for profitable bluffs on rivers enough. I just didn't have the balls to do that. To fix that I should study those river spots in depth so it becomes more clear to me when I face such opportunities so I actually go for it without feeling down on myself when I run into the nuts.

So this month will be more about finding balance and maintain it. Create healthy routines before and after sessions. Create effective study routines and aim for 70-100k hands of poker. I don't want to put my focus on results for now and just trust the progress and that I will be fine as long as I keep working hard and get routines going for me. Ofc I would be happy if I go on a heater this month but I'll try to stay realistic and just take it as it comes and deal with it.

Thanks for reading, have a nice week and Gl at the tables

Redline does not really look too flattering since I'm playing a pretty simple ABC-strategy with some small adjustments here and there. I don't even know at what point I should worry about a bad redline to be honest with you. Someone got advice?

Goals for the week
-Get a static sleep schedule and stick with it
-Study more than before (Only got like 1-2h of study in every day)
-Play more hands than before without burning out and without forcing myself to play. Aiming at 2-3k hands Mo-Fr and 4-5k on Saturday/Sunday

March Goal

$68.84/$1000

Gonna update again on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by, have a nice week and GL at the tables
aslong as greens going up overtime who gives a **** about redline doing or even allin ev (as its not a very accurate predictor of how hot or poorly youve run luck wise anyway...) aslong as green climbs over time your golden

gl btw

I don’t know much regarding German online poker legislation but they must be better sites for you to play than the super high rake trap that is microstakes pokerstars!!

I suggest learning PLO ; )
not wanting to hi-jack but hasnt pokerstars got one of the lowest rakes and caps? compared almost all sites other than microgaming and unibet? so never really understood the rake trap thing mean rake in general sucks balls even a standard amount 5% but pokerstars seems to rake less least in cashgames than most sites (tournies whole other story...).

please move down stakes, one bad downswing will break your bankroll,

with this red line I'd say you don't even beat 10nl, no flame, please go and learn fundamentals, and ranges

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

ich rate dir mal lieber 6max zu spielen als zoom. die rote linie ist eine katastrophe! und solang deine winnings und EV Linie so nah beinander liegen, heißt das, dass du weder gut noch schlecht läufst, sondern du rennst ziemlich deinem Spiel entsprechend. und das leider nicht gut. nimm mehr Zeit für lernen, ich meins nur gut Wenn du Pro werden willst, musst du auch viel lernen! Mein Tipp: Normales 6max zum lernen Du musst viel mehr VPIP am Button haben, usw. wurde eh schon fast alles erwähnt anyway, good luck sir

I went from +$400 to -$300. I'd consider that a downswing and I survived it with no problems at all. Will mix in a lot more 16z though when 25z looks too tough for me. And since I'm working on my game constantly I don't see any reason to drop 5z. I know the reasons why my redline is dropping to that extend and I'm working my ass off to fix that. Also I dropped to 2 tables so I can put more focus in my game. I'll be fine man l, don't you worry

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

Take my advice with a pinch of salt, as I play lower than you, and used to have the same problem (losing too much on nsd, even though my blueline also goes up like yours). You seem a little bit nitty pf for 6 max. I am too (13/11/4 AF 1.8) but I play FR normal and it´s actually ok there.

Anyway, try to make your flop, turn and river cbet spots more villain dependent, and rely heavily in your HUD. Abuse of their fold stats, but look at the bigger picture always, so compare them to vpip, pfr, af, wtsd, wwsf and w$sd esp when you have a big sample. raise cbet and fold vs raise otf also help. Be more careful oop. Think about their ranges at all times (stats help a lot on this one also).

Think about how you will atack each villain type before playing, everyday. Use a notebook. Make a daily briefing before playing. Vs the regs, it pays to make notes about your overall planning, so if you forget or are playing too many tables, you can rely on them to formulate a postflop strategy.

Avoiding putting money in bad spots postflop, and exploiting their leaks the maximum you can should help revert your nsd losses, and hopefully your green line also.

Ich weiß deinen Ratschlag zu schätzen aber ich glaube du hast da ein grundlegendes Missverständnis was Varianz angeht. Nur weil EV und net so nah beieinander sind heißt das noch lange nicht dass da alles mit rechten dingen zugeht und dass da alles fair abläuft. Auf 90k Händen kann ich signifikant öfter in set over set rennen und verlieren oder viel öfter in einen KK vs AA spot rennen. Meine 3bet pots können viel öfter verfehlen und flushdraws können weniger ankommen als sie sollten. Klar wäre ein -10bb/100 graph oder ein 10bb/100 graph schon ein netter Indikator wie man sich in dem Feld so schlägt aber bei beinahe 0bb/100 auf dem kleinen sample kann man noch nicht sagen wo ich jetzt stehe. Kann -4bb/100 sein aber auf 4bb/100. Das werden wir sehen. Und bis dahin werde ich wie gesagt weiter an meinem game arbeiten und falls ich dann doch ein losingplayer da bin hab ich kein problem damit fürs erste von 25z abzulassen.

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

Hey guys, still breakeven but I got a question for you guys and I hope someone can help me. Pokerstars put my goldchests from 5000 points needed to 48500 points. So I essentially have to pay 10x the rake for the same rakeback, which is unacceptable when i'm breakeven. Already contacted the support and they basically dodged my question and didn't help me at all. They downgraded my chests to silver and they cost 14500 points for 2-3$ rakeback i'll gain from them.
So obviously I want to switch sites now, can anyone recommend another site with good rakeback and soft pools? Also I want to know if I can use PT4 on them for HUD and so on.

Please please please help me

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

Precisely the same thing happened for me with Stars; my black chest was 35k points ($350) to rake, after completing 3-4 of them they upped it to 335k points ($3,350), essentially adding 3k extra rake for a reward I'm not even sure is better. Did the same as you and E-Mailed support, to which they also kept dodging until they couldn't any longer, so naturally they stopped replying instead. Have forwarded it to them a couple times asking for updates and still nothing. Absolute joke. However, despite all of this, I wouldn't advise you to look to other sites, as micro's is by far the softest on Stars. The only other site that comes close is GGPoker, and IMO it's too sketchy to risk, although the "risk" does seem to only come into consideration when playing mid stakes, so maybe you'll be ok there. PT4 will not function there, though. glgl

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

Thanks for the reply. What do you mean by sketchy? Is my money not safe there or is there botting or cheating going on? What about partypoker and which tracking program can I use on ggpoker?

Re: All in. Going pro in 2019

Quite a few reports of people's accounts being froze and sometimes even the funds being seized for XYZ excuses from GGPoker, however this was mainly in conjunction with MSNL/HSNL players; have not heard anything similarly bad with any micro players(??), so I'd imagine your money is safe.

Would still recommend to stay on Stars mate

I guess I respect your opinion on stuff too much to do anything else than staying on stars. Thanks for answering my questions, it's kind of an honor that you're lurking around in my thread
