oh are you OP or do you just like to stick your nose in questions directed at someone else?

anyway, its relevant to the coaching hes currently receiving... some people approached me and asked me what i make of it so i wanted to see how good he really is. Anyone can beat fish HU, you dont need to pay like $600 or more for that. Now i know what my answer to those people will be.

also what a sad world you live in if you play poker just for the money... good luck making millions at NL2.

I didnt take it as mean, no worries. Just replied about it specifically because I know many posters dont understand how the mods and moderation work

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Day 32 + 33

Goals of the week
(1) tooking up time: I was tired yesterday so I my concentration was not high to pay enaugh attention to this goal. Mostly I took up my time and played well. I improved and that is important.
(2) instant handanalyse: I cant do this intensively when I play not more than 2 tables. When I play more there is no time to do this. I tried my best and used this sometimes. Should do it more often.

Other matters
My poker skills are getting better and better every day. I make play I never made before. Mabe I will make a video in the near future.

hand of the day:
Villain was unknown. How would you have played the hand and why?

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Day 34 + 35

Goals of the month
(1) tooking up time: Why is it important to take up your time. Let me quote it from "Secrets of No Limit Holdem - Danny Ashman". In poker its important to be constantly thinking and using your brain as much as you can. It is possible to play by shutting the brain off and going mainly on instinct (although this is still based on past experience). However your results wil be poor. Use your head as much as you can in a poker game. When your mind is focused 100 % on trying to play your best and thinking everything over you will learn a lot more than when you play average poker. When your main focus in poker is learning and getting better it forces you to put in maximum effort at the table which will help you learn and as side effect you will play better and win more money.
(2) instant handanalyse: To sum it up. I didnt pay enaugh attention to this thing and missed a lot of information. Al lot stuff to do for me in the future.

Other matters
I was pissed off yesterday because I was up about 550 $ and than lost everything vs 2 bad players. They hit everything. So I need a break and play some chess games so that I could relax. After that I played much better and could win about 250 $ back.

hand of the day:
Villain seemed to be bad passive with some aggressive moments. This was on of them. What would be your plan on turn + river?

My apologies.
You are right I stuck my nose in matters that do not concern me. It was rude and stupid for my part.

Have no intentions to derail anything neither to make millions at 2NL.
GL and sorry again.

PS : I dont need to make money from poker, far from that, but as far as I knew, other than playing with friends, this is exactly what this game is about: taking money from someone else having an edge in the decision making process. Period.

The game is not just about money, some people play just for the social aspect of the game. Some people play because it fuels their competitiveness. The money just a way to keep score.

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Day 36 + 37

Graph of the week


Summary

Each week I learn small things and you can see this in my graphs. All winnings resulted by NL50. On NL100 I just play bad players (=good customers) but Villain hit everything. Its important to stay calm and made the right dicision which gives me the best EV.

Yesterday I thought intensively about handreading and how I use it while playing. I will try to simplify this process. I will take note of this prozess on paper. How do you use handreading while playing (structured, gut feeling,...)?

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Day 40 + 41

Goals of the month
(1) tooking up time I was much better in tooking up time. By playing slower Im not so much stressed - the danger to go on tilt is lower. I have never observed this point from another focus.
(2) instant handanalyse: One of the most underrated goals. By instant handanalyse you can find villains leaks much faster and exploit them. Its still a leak and I have to work every day to become better and better.

Other matters
On the weekend we had a samba festival. We had a lot of fun and could hear drums and rhythms. It last 3 days. Her a small sample



hand of the day:
Villain seems to be tight (after 20 hands). What would be your turnplay?

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Why are you raising the flop here?
On the turn I think I call. Only hand he could have is AQ or 44 or 22 right?

As a semi-bluff. On the turn I shoved because we invested almost our half stack und we could be aheard. Luckily villain had 63 in hearts.

Goals of the month
(1) tooking up time Im getting satisfied with my development. I took up enaugh time for making decisions and you can see it on my results. Im also much more relaxed and dont get fast on tilt.
(2) instant handanalyse: Im getting better and better and my adaption vs villains leaks are much better. Unfortunately I dont always analyse big pots (particulary the big ones) and the result is a temporary tilt. Luckily it last not long.

Other matters
I changed my notesystem. I try to make it more simple. If you have any ideas that I can add please tell me. So here it is.

[PF]
.
[PostF] BZBE= (BB)
.
SR-Pot:
[F] SP=0/0
[T]
[R] M DR=0/0
.
RR-Pot:
[F] SP=0/0
[T]
[R] M DR=0/0


hand of the day:
Villain was very aggressive preflop (35 % 3bet stat) and also postflop. He prefers to cR TP, even as pfa (he already did it once in a RR-Pot). How would you play the hand?

Re: How to make 10k a month - Anybody can do that

Day 46 - 66

Holiday:
We had a very relaxing holiday. Mostly we was on the beach and relaxed. I prefered reading (thriller from Chris Carter, Cody McFaden and Harlan Coban + historical noval from Rebecca Gable ---> 9 books all in all) and walking on the beach. We also made some excursions and visit some citys on our own. Here is a photo from our room view. Enjoy it (I already miss it)



Poker:
I bought a new mouse (Sharkoon FireGlider) + Mousepad (Sharkoon 1337 Gaming Mauspad) and I like them. I will also buy a new computer in the next weeks. I need more power for poker and image editing (GIMP). Im motivated and cant expect to play poker again. Here we go. Lets ready to rumble.

Goals of the month
(1) plan the hand I used to have the goal tooking up time. But what shall we do with this time? Right - one important thing is to plan the hand. And the right time for this is the flop. When cards change something we have to adapt our plan.
(2) instant handanalyse: The questions is how long to I take to master this goal. Its very important to do this to beat higher limits. The more information I have the better I can adapt and win.

Other matters
I got a cold. I try my best that this wont influence my play. I had a meeting via skype with kingbase and he helped me to find the right components for my new computer. I will order it in the next days.

hand of the day:
Villain hat 3B of 72 % (108 hands). He had a high cR (33 %) and low CB (30 %). What would be your turn + riverplan (explain please)?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, €0.50 BB (2 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://poker-tools.flopturnriver.com/Hand-Converter.php

Hero (SB) (€59.31)
BB (€55.23)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 10, J
Hero raises to €1, BB raises to €1.50, Hero calls €0.50

Flop: (€3) J, K, 2 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets €2, BB raises to €4, Hero calls €2

Turn: (€11) 9 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero ?

Graph of the month
I just played 1,5 weeks and are very satisfied with the month. I wish I would have played the whole month. But that is ok. I learn more and more and you can see it in the results.
