And like few posts later u suddenly playing NL25. Just doesn't make sense.
Yeah, I was totally aware of that. But then I was browsing through the lobby and when I see a huge 80/2 whale sitting at a 25nl table fullstacked I just cant resist.
If I know it goes well and I will have a stop loss set in my mind I can afford it.

Re: Deeepz: Moving up to 50NL and moving out in 2014 [6max]

Do you have any problems playing two different stakes at the same time? For some reason it throws my game off a little. Maybe just takes time to get used to the different bets sizes.

The bet sizes dont affect me that much tbh. I think its more the thinkin of "damn thats a lot of maniez or when you move down; damn thats like 2 cheeseburglars". Throws me off sometimes but I got over that I think. Or at least for the most part.
If you have trouble with that theres a software out there for stars that shows everything in BBs instead of dollars. I think its called starshelper or something but not sure.

Progress so far:

[ ] 12k hands: this will be easily achievable. got like 7k already and it's only been 3 days. gogogo
[ ] receive two sweats + give two sweats: gave two sweats already. still two to receive. Probably getting one later today
[ ] record 1 session and review it in depth: no progress so far but got an offer from waffles for reviewing each other's recordings
[ ] post 5 interesting hands in uNL forum: damn gotta work on that. 0/5

BR: 300$

Really been having trouble moving up to 25nl. it always looks like this: taking shots at 25nl until I reach 300$ BR -> rebuilding at 10NL -> repeat. mostly mental issues going on at 25nl. gotta need a big enough BR to feel comfy there. Set a new rule: NO 25NL until BR @ 600$

btw: the graph of the month looks sick already lol swingaments

Don't worry Deeepz, you are going to be killing it at $25 soon.

There are other reasons to have a bigger bank roll then not going busto. A lot of players (my self included) have a harder time pulling the trigger on certain plays they would always make at the lower lever because there is more money on the line. When the roll is padded those worries seem to go away.

GL Deeepz!

sup,

keep going deepz, i have the same problem as you.Just went to a downswing ( tilt + bad luck i guess) @25NL on party. -6 Buy'ins, is too much for my actual BR. I'm not used to loose as much $ as that, because before i would have lost 60$ and not 150$. moving back to NL 10 !

Re: Deeepz: Moving up to 50NL and moving out in 2014 [6max]

Week 2 UPDATE

[X] 12k hands (currently at 11.2k but will do the last 800 hands in a few hours)
[X] receive two sweats + give two sweats (gave 3, received 2)
[-] record 1 session and review it in depth -> damn, I didn't get to record and only started analyzing waff1e's recordings. so not good here
[-] post 5 interesting hands in uNL forum -> nope

whoever picked a goal that i didn't achieve pm me for them moniez (pref. trasnferring via pp or skrill)


Alright so the week was quite cool. let's get right to the graphs bc thats what you're all waiting for:


lol swingaments.. mostly 25nl and some 10nl mixed in. I know I don't follow my BRM properly but meh. what can i do? 20 BI for 25nl is enough for me imo.
I noticed my redline. never had something like this before


Graph since beggining of challenge:




Strange hand of the day:

PartyGaming - $0.10/$0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 3 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

BTN: 118.6 BB (VPIP: 11.32, PFR: 7.55, 3Bet Preflop: 5.26, Hands: 55)
SB: 141.32 BB (VPIP: 43.33, PFR: 23.33, 3Bet Preflop: 18.18, Hands: 32)
Hero (BB): 107.6 BB

SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 6 4

fold, SB raises to 2 BB, Hero calls 1 BB

Flop: (4 BB, 2 players) 7 5 J
SB checks, Hero bets 2 BB, SB calls 2 BB

Turn: (8 BB, 2 players) 3
SB checks, Hero bets 7 BB, SB calls 7 BB

River: (22 BB, 2 players) J
SB checks, Hero bets 19 BB, SB raises to 77.92 BB, Hero raises to 96.6 BB and is all-in, SB calls 18.68 BB

SB shows J A (Three of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 66%, Flop 63%, Turn 0%)
Hero shows 6 4 (Straight, Seven High) (Pre 34%, Flop 37%, Turn 100%)
Hero wins 207.2 BB

River was a pretty sick spot actually. thought about folding but then again, he seemed fishy and it's BvB


Another funny hand against a real fishyfish and a fishreg:

PartyGaming - $0.10/$0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

CO: 24.76 BB (VPIP: 32.50, PFR: 10.83, 3Bet Preflop: 3.92, Hands: 120)
Hero (BTN): 112.6 BB
SB: 137.2 BB (VPIP: 23.68, PFR: 17.11, 3Bet Preflop: 6.45, Hands: 78)
BB: 104.04 BB (VPIP: 14.88, PFR: 11.63, 3Bet Preflop: 1.16, Hands: 219)
UTG: 148.56 BB (VPIP: 75.61, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 44)
MP: 105.56 BB (VPIP: 21.43, PFR: 14.29, 3Bet Preflop: 2.70, Hands: 102)

SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has T Q

UTG calls 1 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 4 BB, SB calls 3.6 BB, fold, UTG calls 3 BB

Flop: (13 BB, 3 players) Q 9 K
SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets 10 BB, SB calls 10 BB, UTG calls 10 BB

Turn: (43 BB, 3 players) 7
SB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

River: (43 BB, 3 players) Q
SB checks, UTG bets 40.88 BB, Hero calls 40.88 BB, SB calls 40.88 BB

UTG shows Q 2 (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 14%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
Hero shows T Q (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 27%, Flop 28%, Turn 14%)
SB mucks K A (Two Pair, Kings and Queens) (Pre 58%, Flop 64%, Turn 81%)
Hero wins 157.36 BB






gogogo


And a saver:
