    All in all, I wasn't too happy with my play today. A good couple of spots i felt like i spewed and as i said earlier i've been a little bit of a station.

    Really good session today. Played awesome and didn't slip up much at all.
    Had to withdraw 500$ of my roll this weekend for a new road bike.

    lol I tilted today. made HORRIBLE plays and calls one after another and got lucky to only lose 4.5buyins. Looks like i can't go back on again until i'm in the right mind frame because today was a self inflicted downswing.

    Read through the first couple pages of the poker mind set yesterday and went back on with a different attitude to the game. I think I generally made good decisions both yesterday and today.



    and 20k hands:

      This pot really hurt, not used to being uncomfortable playing KK. not used to flatting OOP in such a big pot either. just thought i would keep the little spew, QQ, AK in his possible range (although with that 4 bet size i really didn't think it was anything but KK+ with how deep we where and his stats.

      there are very few occasions where i would fold an over pair on such a dry board. maybe this was a spot though.

      thanks, hopefully it goes well i have a lot to learn

      Got a few goals to set for this year:

      [ ]spend 25 hours a week 4 tabling zoom
      [ ]add two juicy 25NL 6max tables in to the grind
      [ ]Reach 50 NL
      [ ]5 hours a week reading and learning about poker
      [ ]12 hours a week training for sprint triathlon in August
      [ ]bulk to 190lb's (currently 172 from 168 2months ago)

      Going to find the last one the hardest for two reasons:
      I'll be training aerobically a lot and burning off a lot of calories.
      I do find it difficult to eat as much as I need to gain weight.

      Good stuff so far.

      KK hand Im just guna go ahead and 4 bet pre.

      I think we can take out any Jx out of his hand and i very much doubt he is raising 22/77 here. Possible hands are now AK/QQ/JJ/KK/AA. Its going to be unlikely he has KK and again unlikely he has AK aswell considering we had 2 of the K's

      So now his range only consists of QQ/JJ/AA.

      When he continues the turn he range becomes more polarized. Im definitely finding a fold maybe on the turn but definitely on the river.

      Do you mean 5 bet? its an idea but i think this player is only ever stacking with KK+ 300 deep. I also don't think hes 4 bet bluffing that big very often and i'm not turning kings in to a bluff by 5bet/folding.
      I think you are right about the fold on the river when I looked over the hand again. Probably a little weak to fold turn.

      42k hands @ 5bb/100.
      I still spew a lot. but its becoming less frequent.

      Just broke the 30second barrier for my 50m freestyle yesterday when training in my last session.
      Racing a friend from college next month when we go to Lanzarote. He is part of the regional squad and has competed in a few internationals so i'm looking forward to that. Don't expect to beat him but I expect to train as hard as I can to get as close to it as possible .

      Soooo Tilted!
      ran bad last night and was down 7 buyins. (only 2 on zoom i was on NL reg tables and a plo table.)
      thats fine. i didn't tilt and was happy about that.

      came back on today and was up 3 buyins untill this hand.... (didn't save in HH so i cant put it in converter)

      HERO(32$ utg): 77
      VILLAN (31$ btn) : xx

      hero: raise to 75c
      villian: reraise to 1.50
      hero: calls

      flop 722

      hero checks
      villian: bets 1.25
      hero: calls

      7 turn

      hero checks
      villian: bets 2.75
      hero: reraises to 7.75
      villian tanks
      POWER CUTS OUT!!!!!
      come back and i have lost the pot...so he must of shoved or called.
      i went back on but theres no point, my A game is too busy being rage tilted.

      i've sent the player an email concerning the hand and asked him to reimburse me my loses and the subsequent stack i should have taken from him.

      luck is not allowed to be that crewel.
