re: Grinding past the fries

Ty Matts!

Tried to get into grind mode today but I'm just not up to it. Not only am I very hungover but I'm physically exhausted; my football team (Motherwell) needed to beat their rivals today to finish 2nd in the league (a big achievement). We scored in the last seconds and I went skitzo. Helped all the more that I made Ł225 on it



Was quite a spewy session, stacked off w KQ BVB vs K6 on a K6xdd board. Fortunate to make a profit I think. Gonna play the SCOOP, determined to make the 2nd day in either of em! Some quick hands...

        re: Grinding past the fries

        ^ ty sir!

        Busted both SCOOPS, nearly made the $ in the 2nd one, but ran a horrible three street bluff that was never gonna get through to crash and burn. I blame it on fatigue. Won about $40 on Zoom during this but quit after about 500 hands as I was too tired to grind.

        Not a bad day, absolutely delighted to have made some profit, considering how long I spent in the red. Sat for about 7/8 straight hours today without a break, and really enjoyed it.



        For the month so far...



        My lines look a bit weird, spose the only one that matters is $1k to the good! Some hands from today...


        Villain is a good reg, not sure why he takes this line.

              Never bluff a fish. Never. I think when I 3bet the flop I have to jam this turn.

                    Hi OP,

                    Played a few hands with you at zoom - I'm GInTheorem. You put in way more volume than I do though. GL at the tables except against me.

                                Just noticed this, ty. Gl to you too(except vs me obviously ).

                                Today's graph...



                                Struggling to get the volume I was getting last month. I think it is because last month I was a) not playing well and b) having tilt issues, meaning I wasn't winning and it's easy to put the volume in to get back to even. This month though if I'm up $200 for the day after only 2k hands, it's easy to just finish. I'm chasing these VPP bonuses, so will need to try and up the volume, regardless of results! Some hands from today...


                                Weird line from a reg, I thought he was full of it OTT, hence the flat.

                                        I'm prone to playing the odd awful hand from time to time. The first one in a few days, and very lucky to suckout, awful from start to finish.

                                            My bankroll took a hit lately, but I still have like 60k FPPs.. Do you think I should take the like 800$ in bonusses, or drop down and save the FPPs for the Supernova €1150 bonusses? (93.5k each) when I hit SN ?

                                            How much of a hit? And what's your BR now? If it were me I'd buy the bonuses and stay at 50nl as the thought of grinding 25nl makes me wanna cry. Up to you though Mr Waffle!

                                            Busted the $11 and $109 SCOOP. $11 was a short-stack 3bet jam w A4o and the $109 was a 20bb call w 88 vs KK. Blocked MTTs off from the client again, back to Zoom tomorrow!

                                            A very mehh day today. Wasn't feeling it at all. Blocked myself for 12 hours so as to take a little break. I bluffed well today but was calling down super light, just not in the right frame of mind. The graph...

                                              Vs a fish. Snapped the river faster than you could say "aggro fish".

                                                Would like some advice on this hand. Flop the nuts, what's the best way to get paid? Wp, or flat the flop x/r? I 3bet coz I don't want a tricky turn spot with the board pairing or a killing my action.

                                                  I think this hand is wp. OTR I'm usually beat, but I'm never x/folding so I may as well put the last $ in myself.

                                                    I like this hand the most. Villain is the solidest of all the regs, certainly capable of making big folds.

                                                      On a personal note, due to my successful sports bet mentioned a few days ago and my recent cashout, I've paid a big chunk of my debts off. Still a long way to go, but will feel good when I'm debt free in a few months

                                                      Good luck with paying off your debts, never a nice feeling.

                                                      The last three hands in that post are pretty bad though.

                                                      BornToRun, do us a wee favour mate... when commenting on hands, could you kindly go into detail about why you feel the hand isn't as good as it could be, or refrain from posting one liners like that? Ty

                                                      Just as your comment.

                                                      Last 3 hands are standard, the second last one could use better sizings but that's it.

                                                      I think the KQss hand is fine. usually i think flatting IP is best, but since we block every bluffing combo villain can have we might as well try and get the money in now. So that we dont have to deal with action killers/paired board.

                                                      J9s your sizing is off imo. Raise flop bigger (at least 18,5) so you can shove turn.

                                                      h3:
                                                      with the passive fish in the pot it wouldnt make sense for you to check a big hand here. You just wanna bet and get 3 big streets. So you kinda are FOS ott. Probably had the best hand.
