Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

Right, I keep getting caught with second pair good or top kicker on the river having bet small on the flop, worse out of position when he bets turn and river. But this ok provided we have top pair hands and call with the second pair sometimes?

Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

It sucks, but it happens. It would be real sick if you run it twice and the second one runs out one of the other 3 suits.

Don't let it phase you! You got this.

Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

Tyty!
Ha yes I went from 1.1k to 2.8k in 2-3 weeks and crashed down to 1k. Got 1.5k now.
BRM is basically 50nl until 3k. I tried some nl100 but got owned. The reason for 3k is that gives me 10 buyins for nl100 without fear as I can cope with going back down to 2k.

Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

$1333

dumb hand

this one really annoyed me, I read him perfectly literally thinking he can only have picked up 2 pair if he is ahead, he is repping a weak ace or pocket when he checks to me and the fish on the flop and then calls the bet.

Hero BB with AQ
MP limps 0.50, SB reg raises to 2.50, hero calls to keep in the MP, MP calls

3AT
SB checks, hero bets 3/4 pot, MP folds, SB calls

9
SB checks, hero bets about 3/5 pot, SB calls

4
SB checks, hero bets just over half pot, SB calls

shows down A4

Quite confident we can vbet all 3 streets on this runout, we have the best hand on the river most of the time, could go a touch smaller.

Nearly at the end of month 2 which is the 9th March, obv this is going to be a losing month unless god-run in next 5 days

Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

fruity one, 100BBs deep vs unknown (sizing tell perhaps he isnt the best)

MP opens, hero is CO with A6 and 3bets, BTN cold calls, folds around

7A8
hero checks, BTN bets pot, hero calls

5
hero shoves for about 115% pot size bet, BTN calls

Spoiler:


I am probably the fish in this hand because firstly it's not the best spot for a 3bet, it isnt horrible but I dont usually 3bet MP with this.
Flop is meh, if he is bluffing he probably doesnt use this size and it looks like a vbet to which we are close to dead. But I have top pair!
On the turn I just thought/felt jamming would be marginally better than a check. Vs a tight range with all the nutted hands and big aces, we are a dog but if we throw in 9T only for bluffs we are 50/50.

SB bets €5.62, hero calls

(€17.71) 8
SB checks, hero bets €7.75, SB raises to €15.60 and is all in, hero calls

Right you jinxed me dammit
Staring into the abyss of breakeven right now... gonna try the run it once sub for some new ideas / reminders of solid play. Looks like some decent mental game stuff on there too.

Planning to record a brief session to post here to see if anyone is willing to spot some leaks for me but need to work out how

Re: Can I turn €1k into €10k in 2018?

$1195

up and down like a blue arsed fly

gonna try some NL25 until 1500 then nl50 with a move down at 1250.

hand 1, NL25
BvB battle, 100BBs deep
unknown SB raises to 0.75, hero is BB with A5 and raises to 2.20, SB raises to 6.60, hero jams and is called by QQ

dont know whether a flat the 4bet is better.


hand 2
unknown MP raises to 0.75, hero is SB with KQ and raises to 2.40, MP calls

(5.20) J67
hero bets 1.80, MP calls

(8.80) 5
check, check

(8.80) 5

standard cbet with the back doors/overs, no point betting further even though *always* beat?
Spoiler:



hand 3.
50BBs deep vs fish
hero is UTG and raises to 0.75 with QJ, btn calls

(1.90) K9T (yee ha)
hero bets 1.42, btn raises to 2.84, hero raises to 4.26, btn raises all in to 12.04

runs out 3J

shows down
Spoiler:


My re raise flop sizing seems retarded but we are super shallow at that point, flatting OOP isnt ideal since v range is wider here on flop, flush blockers yada yada but small raise gives him room to continue with bluffs

Is one of your nicknames the same as the one that you're using here?

I also play on Unibet. Mostly 25NL and 50NL. Depends on traffic at those stakes.
Hand 2 is fine. Most people are way too stationary at this stake.

Good luck with your challenge!
