Re: How to Make a Million, OWN Life and become a ****ing Meathead (NO Steroids, NO Hookers)

Damn, I just reviewed how I been doing for the month.. I actually been losing a lot of these days and breaking even fairly often lol. Ruined my plan for august for sure as I haven't put in as much hours. Actually at minimal though I been mainly putting in 8 hours.. (except for one day where I stoplossed). soo thats good news I'm just happy I've increased in everything and I see progression, thats all that matters. If your taking a step forward for the month then you know things are going right (whether or not the $$ is more or not is irrelevant).

Ready to do well tomorrow -> going to turn into a robot this week-> no thoughts except poker. lol

Not going to say my total br, I put on a bit, but hasn't really been my main priority. I jog from time to time excercise from time to time. But I just want to focus on poker and tbh really not commited to continually doing it like I once wanted to.

Yeah I got owned today, I ran soooooooooooo bad it was nasty. In the end I got a bit tilted I was finding regs to sit on waiting to reply to them and asking if they want to play they ignore me then take the button and leave. haha but I gotta realize its online poker and thats part of the game.


For the rest of this month I will be going back down to 200NL probably. Not because I'm no longer rolled/can no longer shot taking 1KNL. I decided that I'm going to practice only against regulars the rest of this month. I will move up and play 400NL when I end up making a bit more for the month, right now its been a very dry spelled month and am not making any money this month lol. I also think I may be doing a ton of things wrong, so gonna just reevaluate and practice for the rest of this month.

Re: How to Make a Million, OWN Life and become a ****ing Meathead (NO Steroids, NO Hookers)

This is my hardest month of all time ever since I switched to HU cash games (I've had harder months back in the MTT days ) I've been really struggling, I keep getting owned and shot down. I gotta keep going though, keep studying harder and be even better then anyone who gets in my way To be fair I ran bad today as well and felt like I played very good today as well probably better then I have ever played. So I'm still happy with that I played a bit higher against some regs at 600$ buy ins. They were fairly good but I feel like I am even better then them by (probably 5-6 bbs) maybe even more who knows I just think i'm better I realize when specific players are better then me so I'm not one of those delusional players that thinks hes better then the world



Playing is only half the battle, the other half is having the right approach and keep going for it no matter how hard it gets, I should never get discouraged. I also got somewhat over confident the two previous months and never studied at all.. this month is the first time I've been studying and trying to find spots to continually improve in.

Month: missing about 5K hands, going to import that on Monday.


I changed my game plan from yesterday btw(after talking with Gordon), we will see what happens and blooms throughout the month to make specific decisions on what we want to do.

email him he usually responds within 24 hours

My dream August month really got owned, I had ambitions of playing tons and tons of hours, making lots of money and just completely demolish everything, oh well.

I been studying trying new things trying to figure out whats going on. I may just be making to many errors trying and experimenting new things. I don't know nothing has been going right this month, its only been half the month and as everyday goes by my soul begins to get tortured and hurt a little bit more and more because I can't seem to win.

Tomorrow I will only play 200NL and 100NL (yes i'm really adding 100NL tables I haven't played 100NL in months). This sounds extremely insane/intense, but I will only be playing fishes tomorrow at the very micro stakes.

I think this excercise (self made) will teach me a lot.

1) when things are going bad I can completely drop any sort of "ego/hubris" i've had and be willing to just be playing way lower then my normal stakes

2) Normally I don't think i would ever be able to take 100NL seriously, but after continually getting owned I think I will be able to value every single decision as if its even the highest stakes.

Nothing is going right but the poker gods don't care, they will continue to own your soul in every way. So I have to make stake adjustments just temporarily and play the very worst so there's just no possible way I can lose. (while hopefully regrinding and turning this month around), I will slowly move up again as things start going right (they always will/should) and then play everyone again.

I haven't had a winning day in ages, basically anytime I won anything my ******* got ****ed twice as hard the very next day. So I am stoplossing today.

Re: How to Make a Million, OWN Life and become a ****ing Meathead (NO Steroids, NO Hookers)

Today didn't go well as planned. I only played fishes thats the sick part about it AND i only played 200nl and 100nl. I'm forgetting that I could even beat poker, Its really starting to get to my head, Poker does that to you though I got to find a way out a way to start winning.. I may just stick to this plan for the rest of the month strictly play fishes even at 200NL and 100NL. I have no idea right now but right now it seems like its the best idea.

Tomorrow I'm definitely taking the whole day off.. all i'm going to do today is insert the databases then thats it.. I need to reset my mind

Thanks!! you too

First win in a while. I woke up at 7 am today (which is normally 3 hours then I normally wake up at, I'm probably going to start waking up even earlier), we'll see.. But for sure I want to keep it at around 7am.

I been meditating to stay calm as well



PLAN for tomorrow:
100NL/200NL only (if I start it off with a winning day add 400NL) then resume the very next day back to regular stakes adding 600nl/1knl if I end up with a decent winning day if not repeat it the next day.. if not the next day if not the next day !!!
Meditate
Watch 1 Motivating Video to keep me awake (Since I decided to wake up earlier then I usually do)
No going on any pokerforums/fb till after I finish the session

Re: How to Make a Million, OWN Life and become a ****ing Meathead (NO Steroids, NO Hookers)

Amazing thread !!! been up 8 hours to read all the posts here.

I have few question if you don't mind regarding BRM.

what kind of BRM are you following?
can you explain when you take a shoot at higher limits?
in those shoots are u playing against fishes or regs ( bumhunting or reghunting )?
when you drop the shoot and get back to your official limit?


p.s

sorry for my bad english.

Ur gonna make it bro. Could tell that you have that passion inside you. Anyone whose ever been great at anything will tell you it starts from within. I just recently started but i have similar views as you. I literally dream about it and I'm content to just read and reread any poker texts and debate it in my mind for hours. Keep grindin brah

sorry for my bad english.
1) at first I did a 40bi br rule in the very beginning, before shot taking the next stake, although as stakes got higher I just do it based off comfortability.
2) well when I win a decent amount from the stake I just decide that maybe im ready to shottake
3) when I move up I always gameselect (I think its crazy not to imo). When I first moved up I played everyone at 200NL and as a result I had to move down 3 times because of that since its a shot-take (for me it was always a 5 bi shot take), so its better to game select stay in the games then start playing anyone.
4)I drop down whenever I feel uncomfortable for a while then just try to get back to doing things better.

Thanks,I been lurking through your thread as well some super sick hands!

Went to walmart today to try to buy a kindle but then they didn't have it.. sad life. lol its pretty far from where I live too so it takes quite some time for me to get all the way over there. Went to the radioshack next to walmart but they also didn't have a kindle. I been looking for something to do during my time such as read, but that failed because there's no english books. Oh well, I'm eventually going to go to Cali and when I get there I'll get a kindle as well.
